I've been bitten by the "tagged" bug! My friend Keely tagged me and although I'm very slow on doing this, I am posting my top 5 favorite things. This was very hard for me because I have lots of them! :)

1. My Jesus, my husband, my family, Rookie and the Gyllenhaals (The Gyllenhaals are also our family pets, Maggie and Jake. Mom says she did that inadvertently, but I'll point out that she has a subscription to US Weekly.)

Maggie and Jake

2. Chips and hot sauce...these items can always turn that frown upside down! Coupled with queso and a margarita you'll be hard pressed to find anything better.
3. Laughing with good friends (preferably while consuming #2)

Reams, Lynch, Bradley, The Loj and Me

4. Christmas time. Celebrating a child that changed the world, the lights, the trees, the smells, the happiness, getting Christmas cards, Christmas music, how happy the kids are, 2 weeks off work....the list goes on and on.

5. Texas Longhorn football....I KNOW...I'm probably going to die in my sleep. I love college football and I love Longhorn football. I also love collegiate baseball...specifically watching my brother play. Roll Wave!
