I like this and that

My friend Sherry made a list of all the things she likes and posted it on her blog. I was so impressed by it I decided I had to do one of my own. This is my list of all the things I like.

I like pink........pink roses, pink pansies, pink flamingos and poodles....pink hair, pink paper, pink rhinestones, glitter and lace. I also like pink tops that go with my pink sandals and pink nail polish for my toes. I like pink sheets with pretty little flowers and if I could I would have a pink bathroom with pink towels and pink soap.

I like animals.....
I like dogs, cats, horses and donkeys....elephants, monkeys, tigers and yes even snakes.
I like the way my dog sleeps on his back with his paws pointed to the ceiling. I like the sound and feel of a kitten's purr. I like the twist in a piggy's tail and how a horse's tail gently flows in the wind.

I like long summer days and sitting on my back porch when it rains. I like to catch lightning bugs and put them in a jar. I like hummingbirds, butterflies and rainbows.

I like popular and soft rock music with a little Texas country on the side.

I like that I was born and raised in Texas. I like everything about Texas......It's vastness, diversity and pride. I like Texas singer songwriters like Robert Earl Keen and Pat Green.
I like to go to county fairs and walk around with a beer in one hand (a Shiner Bock) and a
corn -on -the cob in the other. I like to ride the Ferris Wheel, play carnival games and dance the cotton eyed joe.
I like the Aggie Band, Texas Longhorn football and watching my kids play sports.

I like the beach......to feel the sand between my toes and to hunt for seashells, sand dollars and treasures. I like to ride the ferry and watch the dolphins dive in and out of the water as they follow along ...... And I like the laughing seagull as he tries to find something to eat.

I like to laugh.

I like to go to dinner and a movie. I like to read. I like creativity. I like to take pictures, draw and paint.
I like to travel. I like Las Vegas and New York and I'd like to go to Paris. I like the Fleur de Lis, the Eiffel Tower and Pepe Le' Pew.

I like Disney movies.....Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and The Lady and the Tramp.

I like Coke, fries and a hamburger with everything on it, add jalapenos, mustard and mayonnaise.

I like my moms home cooking....... her chicken noodle soup, kolaches and vanachca.

I like the smell of fresh cut grass and roses blooming in my garden. I like small towns, antiquing and a drive through the country.
I like corn fields, cotton fields, and round bales of hay.

I like to dress up or dress down. l like to wear blue jeans, T shirts and flip flops. I like chandelier earrings and large vintage brooches.

I like girls night out, slumber parties and happy hour.......margaritas, pina coladas and cosmopolitans.....Blue Moon or Dos Equis with chips and salsa.

I like vintage, retro, and art deco style, Hollywood Movies and South Beach Miami.

I like weddings and proms. I like costume parties, Halloween and Christmas. I like to decorate and plan.

I like to sleep.

I like to take it easy, to relax and to daydream.

Oh...... and I like the internet, facebook and my blogging friends.

This was so much fun to do..... I hope you do one too. And if you decide to make a list of your own please leave a link here for me to follow.
