I just posted something very similar to this... are we in a blogging parallel universe... As CB would say "We match!"

Ingram Gang said...

mmmmmm....those all sound pretty great to me. Well, except your husband. That one is you-specific :)

Angela said...

I don't see Hot Tamales on this list. :)

i love this post! one of my favorite scrapbook pages from high school was 1oo things that i love... you've inspired me to try it again (in list form of course)... i encourage you to add to your list and do the same! see if you can come up with 100 things (it's A LOT!) :) but if you don't have time amongst the playing mom and student and worker bee, it's fine. :)

Game shows!

There aren't enough game shows on TV and most of the ones that are involve no skill (Deal or No Deal) or attempt at humiliating all but the winner.

Bring back Press Your Luck, Tic Tac Dough, Classic Concentration, and someone help Bob Barker so he can host the Price is Right!

Jason! Guess what was on the Game Show Network this weekend-- a Press Your Luck & 25,000 Pyramid (NOT the sucky Donny Osmond version) marathon! It was the best. I totally tuned in.

Also, new school supplies are pretty awesome. I'm pretty excited for school supply shopping with my kiddos!
