4 Things – Play Along, Big Mail Pile

Hi Friends, how are you?  I’ve been busy working, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, and unburying myself from this pile of mail and packages that is just part of what I received while I was in Aruba for most of December.

 A sincere Thank You to all my bloggie friends who sent me holiday cards.  Your cards were much more fun to open than all the bills.  Seriously thank you everyone; you all made my day!

A fresh Magazine Stash is always good

This really is just part of what I received.  I hope you all enjoy reading about my mailbox finds come January.  Because like it or not, you know I will be sharing it with you then. 

From my last post about my 2011 Intentions, I am glad you enjoyed what I shared and it was nice to hear your intentions, too. 

And thanks for letting me know that although subtle, you like the word choice of intention or goal, over the word resolution, for all the reasons I explained.  Here’s to setting those 2011 Intentions!

Moving on to 4 Things.  

I’ve seen Janetha, Caitlin, Jessica, and Ashley post theirs and I am posting my answers to the 4 Things Quiz:

1. Four TV shows that I watch:
E! and Bravo TV rule my world
Keeping Up with the Kardashians
The Real Housewives (all except DC, I couldn’t really get into those ladies)
The Millionaire Matchmaker

2. Four things that I’m passionate about:
Physical Fitness

    3. Four words/phrases I use a lot:
    No worries
    Skylar, were you touching Mommy’s computer again?

    4. Four things I’ve learned from the past:
    Don’t sweat the small stuff
    Don’t buy real estate until you’re really sure
    How many miles you can run is unimportant
    Don’t take things for granted

    5. Four places I would like to go:
    Bora Bora/French Polynesia
    A massage parlour

    6. Four things I did yesterday:
    Went to work
    Opened mail

    7. Four things I am looking forward to:
    Watching Skylar grow up
    Seeing how well I do with my 2011 Intentions
    Warmer weather
    Taking pictures with my new DSLR camera

    8. Four things I love about winter:
    Nothing.  Which is why I moved from MN to IL to NC to SC to CA.  With each move, the weather got better (warmer)
    Not having to wash workout clothes since I don’t sweat
    Less tourists around 

    I’ll leave you with a Breakfast/Snack/Dessert: Vegan Gluten Free Blueberry Streusel Muffins

    Scott is not a Muffin Guy and he said these were the Best Muffins He’s Ever Eaten.  Gluten-Free and Vegan, and the fact they only take 1 bowl and 5 minutes to stir together by hand just happen to be a bonus part.

    1. Have you ever come home to a huge pile of mail?  Do you feel the need to get through it all, right away?
    I did only because after a month, if there were bills that needed to be paid that weren’t on autodraft, I wanted to make sure I handled those.  And there were some that were dangerously close to being overdue so glad I did power through that pile.

    And of course, see everyone’s holiday cards that I received was the biggest highlight of the mail!

    2. Name 4 things of yours, in any category.  Or in multiple categories.   As Holly says, Sharing is Caring.  Tell me about your 4 Things!

    3. Do you like Blog Quizzes, Surveys, Fun Fact type posts?
    I do once in awhile.  They’re a fun diversion and a way to get to know more about the blogger behind the blog, so to speak.  I always learn tidbits about my friends when I read things like this.  Someone always surprises me with something!

    Here are some of my former ones

    p.s. As an annoying aside, I was all set to hit publish and realized blogger ate more than half this post and I just re-typed most of it and uploaded all new pictures.  Oh the time waste the joy.  

    See you later today!
