I love your perfect 10! I find it easy to dwell on the negative so I thought this was a great way to shift my focus on the positive! Thanks for playing along!

Great job. I just read this on Shawn's blog you all did a great job. I would miss my camera if I had to be without it too. Glad you got yours back. I am glad I had that third child too...as difficult as he is some days. LOL
When is your 40th? mine is next year. WE should get together.

Stopping by via Miller Racing Family blog,
Congrats on your weight loss and new running habit! That's awesome.
I enjoyed reading your lists.
Have a great week!

Connie W said...

great lists!

I'll go to Hawaii with you...Mimi wants to go too!

MiMi said...

Yeah! Connie, you and me are all in for Hawaii!
I love that you put books on your thankful list too! :)

Charon Benton said...

I enjoyed your list--might have to do one on my blog...after 10/10/10 of course, LOL

Stacey at Living by Faith said...

Great lists! Oh my...50+ pounds lost...you are awesome!!

Kelly @ Blessed Mommy, Blessed Wife said...

I loved reading your 10.10.10 post! These are all awesome! I'm so glad I did this too - it made me focus on being positive (which is something that I need A LOT of help with at the present time!).

"Having a third child" - this resonates with me! I hate that I am on the fence about another child. I am just praying about the decision a lot and asking God for clarity. I know He has it all planned out so I should just chill! I had 2 c-sections and chose to have my tubes tied due to the risks of a 3rd c-section so we will be adopting if we add to our family. I think I'd already be pregnant if this weren't the case because we both want more children :)

Girl now those are some great lists. I love the list "the ten things you want to do." Looks like you have some big plans but I have learned there is nothing that can stand in this Darling's way. Can't wait to see what the future holds.
I hope you had a great day!

Keri said...

Great post!! You've lost 50+ pounds? AND you still love creamy jalapeno? That's it, I need to start running!! Good job!

I want to learn to use my camera better too. And learn a new language and be fluent in it. Great list...it was so fun to read!

Vivienne said...

Great list. I like that on your things you'd like to do in the future list, you already have a couple of them ready to go.
:)
