Things that I Love

Good morning Company Girls and CR Peeps!  It’s Caffeinated Randomness time and I am so being random today.  Take all things spiritual off the table – I’m just including worldly stuff today because we all know I love Jesus…

10 Things I Love

{1}  I know I mentioned this before but I love James Bond movies.  I have a new quest – to watch, from beginning to end, every James Bond movie made.  There are 22 currently and because my husband loves me, he has moved all the ones I have not yet seen to the front of the Netflix cue.  If that is not true love, I don’t know what is.

{2}  I love Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series.  I know, I know, I know.  I’m also a fair-weather friend. I was so Edward, but then secretly started turning Jacob in the second movie. Shhhh….

{3}  Cheesecake.  With graham cracker crust and strawberry sauce.

{4}  CSI.  Vegas and New York.  But not Miami.  Oh, and Parenthood.  And Friday Night Lights.

{5}  Writing.  It’s getting the point where I just can’t stop. Unless I’m writing something really hard and then I can only write like a paragraph at a time.  But the will and desire never seems to abate, even when it gets difficult.

{6} Shark Week.

{7}  Football.

{8}  Finishing marathons. 

{9}  Having the windows open.  Having the windows open, with a breeze blowing my white curtains.

{10}  The beach.  The ocean.  The sea air.  The perfect vacation.



  1. Oh, I love this list girl...i love learning how we're alike and different. Very much alike the last two...the others--are unique:)

    as a funny aside: i actually 'know' have met someone who was on Parenthood (last season). he's the younger brother of one of our good friends--I forget what his name was on the show, but the boyfriend that split the cousins up, first with (Haddy?) one then the other (forget her name).

    My only two shows I watch right now are CHUCK (love it) and CASTLE (hubby and i together:)

  2. We are just finishing up season one of Friday Night Lights, with a lot more to finish. Fun.

    Your list is fun. (And just for the record, I think all of life is spiritual, when we love Jesus.)

    Love your blog.


  3. love the list! I think I relate to the last three the most. It's fun to get to know you just a little better.

  4. The Twilight series? Never would have thunk it... : )

  5. I heart white curtains blowing in the breeze! And I secretly enjoy the Twilight series, too. But I am still an Edward girl. I'm a sucker for true love. ;)

  6. #9 & 10 all the way!!!

    Hope you have a great weekend :)

  7. I like this list!

    I love to write, run, have the windows open with a breeze (doesn't happen as often as I would like but do love that), and the beach, the ocean, the sea breeze air.

    Thanks for sharing.

  8. Apparently I live in a hole. I have never seen the Twilight movies, nor have I seen any of the TV shows you listed! I do adore cheesecake, writing and the beach, though!

    Have a great weekend!

  9. fun! sounds like we like some of the same tv!

  10. Your list makes me happy. I adore cheesecake just as your mentioned. Yum.......

    FNL? I discovered it the summer of 2009 and watched the first three seasons back to back. Oh. My. Then watched the fourth season and cannot wait for the comes out on dvd before they air it on NBC so I am totally getting the dvds and having a Farewell FNL weekend ;) I shall miss Coach Taylor and Tammy.

    I also enjoy Parenthood. I should catch up on hulu.... I too enjoy Chuck and Castle as Abby mentioned above. Chuck is my favorite nerdy hero ever. Sigh.........

    And the beach...I need to be there a to the sap. Sigh.......

    From my comment I am sure you can tell I adore randomness too. (Oh I did the 7 things post today on my blog!)

  11. What a fun list, loved it! It's fun learning more about you through posts like this. Happy, happy weekend!

  12. What a fun list. I have never done one, but maybe I should.
    I too love 1,2, 4 I love CSI even though it's been awhile since I last saw an episode, 5, 8 only I am working myself up to a 5K, 9 and 10.
    Have a good weekend.

  13. Wait, why not Miami!? We can't be friends anymore. Just kidding. We can still be friends. Just start watching Miami. Haha

    A little Bay Area news for you: It is supposed to snow here this weekend. Is that strange or what? We'll see if the snow actually touches the ground. It is quite chilly right now.

  14. I long for the day in which I can write "I love finishing marathons!" I'd love to START one - ha!

    Great list!

    I love coffee, sitting in my living room with an afghan on a cold morning. Heaven!

  15. Love it! I enjoyed reading this list and getting to know you even better, dear one! LOVE the fonts - wish I could do that on my blog!

    Hope you are having a great weekend!

  16. So fun to see the lighthearted Jen..very fun.

  17. Twilight is pretty great! And I so love the beach and ocean!

  18. I'm learning the most important thing I can do during hard times is focus on the present-moment gratitude. Sending my oldest into surgery monday morn - full of fear - and yet cherishing every moment this weekend!
    Thanks for the reminder -

  19. I do enjoy watching Castle and The Mentalist...oh, and NCIS and the Good Wife...can you tell hubby is away a lot in the evening, and by that time of day I'm too tired to do anything else! :0)


Don't go yet! Leave me a note with your thoughts.
