Because I Always Love a Good Letter Challenge

Dawn @ Dawn's Diversions had a fun diversion on her blog a couple days ago....

It's the Sesame Street Meme. Dawn was given a letter by Georgie, and she had to think of 10 things that she loves that start with that letter. So, because I love letters and words and challenges, I asked Dawn for a letter and she gave me.... P.

Quickly ruled out, Poison, Poop, Profanity, Peanut Butter (ick!) Partisin Politics (truly makes me angry), Puke, Potsmokers, Potholes, and Pain.

So, here is my list for letter P.

1) Parenthood - there's probably nothing I like more than being a momma. It just rings true in my heart.

2) Penelope's Pitstop - this is an awesome site that has some of the coolest finds out there - what she calls "Praise Worthy Paraphernailia." Since I hate to shop (I know, I'm weird), I love to look at this website for hip and happenin' ideas. I had been stalking this site for awhile before I discovered it's blog author is a friend of mine named PENNY!!!

3) Parties - I love parties! There is nothing more fun that putting together a fun party for your kids' friends or your own friends! I also love attending parties. Oh, and there's a party of sorts for Oklahoma bloggers coming up. I am going to that party! Won't you come too?

4) People - all of you people! I know I say this all the time, but I am totally inspired by you. I am a people person. Some of my favorite people: Kim Nicole Ashley Laura Lori Chere Chrissy Rise Tom Kerry Judy Ida Starla Dawn Amy Traci Laurie Erin Amanda Jessie Linda Suzanne Heather Ronda Kelly Rhonda Carolyn Renee Catherine Clint Kendra Katie Laurie Terri Ginger Julie Bruce Susan Leigh Michelle Paula I love you all!

5) Pictures!!!!! - I have a passion for pictures. I can't stop taking them. I pore over them like a mad scientest. Here is my favorite photographer.

6) Parents - Well, I literally would not be here if it weren't for my parents, but I appreciate them for more than bringing me into the world. Judy and Jim don't get enough blog time really, because they are the epitomy of wonderful parents and I love them so much even though sometimes lately when I talk to them it is like watching Frank and Estelle on Seinfeld. Love you guys!!!

7) Pummelling Opponents - That sounds bad, but most coaches wives will tell you that it is gut-wrenching to watch a close game... I'd rather just beat the bleep out of the other teams. Sorry, but it's true. Last night, when I left our game early, we were up around 25 and all I could think about was yelling at those players to "extend your lead!!" The rest of the evening, I had such a happy feeling in my heart and when I examined it, I realized it was because we had just annihilated the enemy.

8) Pardon - I love being pardoned from sin... the pardon given to us by Jesus when He died on the cross.

9) Palindromes - Words/Phrases that are spelled the same backwards and forwards - how cool are those? Like RACECAR and WAS IT ELIOT'S TOILET I SAW?

10) Pajamas - oooooh soft pajamas and a warm cup of Green Tea? PERFECT!!!

Ok, that was even more fun than I thought it was going to be. I totally enjoyed it and want you to play. Please play? If you want a letter, leave me a comment that you want to play, and I will assign you one!

I would have had to use poop as a letter because in our family of 5 it seems like I am forever running to Costco for the huge pack of TP. I restock and then it's gone! :0)

I love the new format of your site. Way so very cool! Hope you had a wonderful holiday - I am slowly but surely trying to get back into the swing of things. Missed you while I was gone. Thanks for the warm comments!!!

What? No peanut butter?? But I'm with you on the shopping...hate it. Did you know my dear husband does most of my clothes shopping for me? How embarrassing is that for me to admit?? (Embarrassing for him or for me??)

I would like a letter, Pretty Please! :-)

I like P too...My last name is Posey and the P looks really pretty in fancy letters.

Loved your post!! Especially the competitive edge!! woo hoo!

Michelle said...

I like those P's also. I would probably have to add Peanut Butter to mine. Pictures, People, Parenthood. Those are my favorites. :)

Melinda said...

I saw that you were following my blog now and thought I would drop by to say hello. It is always nice meeting other Oklahoma blogging mamas : )

By the way, you were very brave to sign on for this post. I was scared to see what letter Dawn might give me so I ultimately chickened out.

Meg said...

Swinging by from SITS. Welcome to the crowd!

Happy Friday!

Penelope said...

You are so sweet! Thanks so much for the mention. I am so honored. I love your blog, too! :) I welcome your suggestions to the Penelope's Pitstop, too!

Thanks for stopping by my lil' blog world : ) I plan on going to the party so I look forward to meeting you! Your 'p' post was precious!!
I especially enjoyed pummeling opponents as we are a competitive family (in a healthy was of course LOL!?.
Oh & Stepping Up was awesome!! It would be difficult to decide between the Truth Project & a Beth Moore bible study?! Either choice will bless you.

I haven't finished this yet...

I had to stop when I saw that you DON'T LIKE PEANUT BUTTER! I simply cannot fathom it! Peanut butter is a great love of my life.

I still like you. I guess...


Isn't it amazing how something so silly could dumbfound me? I love peanut butter that much. We go way back. Smucker's all natural. Creamy, of course.

I shudder at the thought of those with peanut allergies.

Okay, I've gone on I'm off to read about those "P's" you do like.

It's amazing what you can learn about a person by this!

I can't imagine not liking shopping. But I AM going to check out your friend's blog.

I LOVE parties. And I love your list!

You totally rocked the letter P. Even without peanut butter.

I'm over it, really! ;)
