Things that I love and other miscellaneous stuff

So... I haven't been very chatty lately.. guess I just haven't had a lot to say.  :)  I will say it's a rarity though, I ALWAYS have something to say.  :-D

So, I am sitting here in my office, it's VERY quiet... Jason is at home recuperating from a bout of the stomach flu (every half an hour all night long), poor guy.  I think that Hurricane Ike has people battening down the hatches and it's quiet.  I kind of like it quiet though.  I have time to do some work, catch up on some stuff, write in my blog and keep up with those other blogs that I love.  nice, huh?  

Hurricane Ike is baring down on the Gulf Coast and where a couple of days ago, it was aiming at Corpus Christi... now it has circled it's wagons and is heading straight for Houston.  Ick!  I will say that *we* have been very lucky of late...  much to the chagrin of the Nawlins residents...  but we have been very very lucky.  Lets just hope and pray that it's not as bad as it can be.  That Houston gets hit with a bit of it without it really being the BIG one.  

So, a few of my friends are evacuating up here. It's really an excuse for her to come and see me (yay!)...  and I can't wait.  It will be such fun to catch up... and have time to do so.  And, jason is scheduled to go fishing... but with his current state of recuperating, I don't know if he is going to go or not.  Although he did say with all of their cancellations, it gives him a better chance of winning something!  HA!  My optimistic hubby!  :)  Go get em tiger!

I also had a bit of a frustrating night with my toddler... I don't know if he is cutting his molars or if he was just cantankerous... but he slept oh... maybe six hours last night!  YAY!  that's fun!  A hubby throwing up, a cranky baby and one tired mama!  

So, it got me to thinking of things that I love.  :)  

I love remembering my Frankie kitty and seeing this picture of him snuggling with his Sammy
I love a good thunderstorm.  (as long as it's not scary)
I love the smell of the trees after a good rain. 
I love bubble tea
I love old friends! 
I love new friends!
I love that smile I get from my pookie that is reserved just for me.  
I love when he lays his little head down on my shoulder.  
I love when my husband unloads the dishwasher.  (small but mighty)
I love when my husband comes up behind me and nuzzles my neck.  (not done nearly often enough).  
I love caramels with the white sugary stuff in the middle. 
I love talking to my mom on my way to work. 
I love the smell of my baby right after his bath.  
I love seeing him play in the plant in the backyard with his little play spade.  
I love cool crisp fall mornings.. waiting on this one to happen still. 
I love when my dog snuggles up against me, even if she does take all the covers. 

I love a good bargain at Pottery Barn!!! 
I love that I have not killed my new plants... yet.
I love a good long bath with a book. 
My beautiful niece and her gorgeous eyelashes! 

I love being a wife. 
I absolutely ADORE being a mom! 
And I work hard at being a good daughter and friend. 

What things do YOU love?  :) 
Have a happy thursday everyone.

What is bubble tea? Should I know this?

I love a lot of things too and it always does my soul good to take time to really spend time thinking on those things.

from wikipedia... bubble tea....
It's not really tapioca though... it's Boba Balls... from Wikipedia. :)

Bubble tea, also called "Boba", is a tea beverage that originated in Taiwan in the 1980s and migrated to Canada before spreading to Chinatown in New York, then to various spots throughout the West Coast of the United States[1]. The literal translation from Chinese is yucka tea (traditional Chinese: 珍珠奶茶; Hanyu Pinyin: zhēnzhū nǎichá; Tongyong Pinyin: jhenjhu nǎichá). The word "bubble" refers to "bubbling", the process by which certain types of bubble tea are made, and not the actual tapioca balls. The balls are often called "pearls." Drinks with large pearls are consumed along with the beverage through wide straws; while drinks with small pearls are consumed through normal straws.
