I LOVE rocking out to *anything* on my ipod while cooking

I LOVE that my DH thinks rocking out to the ipod while cooking is sexy

I LOVE my favorite Dow chemical sleeping t-shirt that I stole from DH when we were dating, who knew a cheap, free, t-shirt would be so comfy and soft

I LOVE my kitties, even when they wake me up in the middle of the night wanting attention or if one bites me in the butt because I'm rocking out too hard on the ipod

I LOVE that I was the first to know that my best friend was pregnant, because she was staying with be before the wedding

I love my husband for more things than I can list here!

I love that I'm going to be a mommy in just a few months!

I love how the baby's nursery is coming together! (We put up a chair rail and painted all the trim cream. It's pistachio green above the rail and chocolate brown below it. Then I painted a tree (that turned out GREAT) and critters on the wall. All the furniture is cream except the crib which is the same brown as the wall with green bedding)

I love feeling Ian move!

I love that I have a dress that I like and that it still fits!

I love that my best friend is flying in from Georgia to visit me this weekend!

I love that a GREAT new restaurant just opened in town and that the manager knows me by name is is VERY helpful with my diet!

I love that I came to terms with my inability to tan, and never have to torture myself with trying to get a tan again!

I love that my mom and I are close and we talk every day!

I love that I have everything I need in life to make me happy!

I LOVE the fact that I am not sick everyday! :rolleyes:

I LOVE my 5 kids and the 6 grandchildren they gave me! :lol:

I LOVE me sweetheart and the fact that he is always watching out for gluten free treats for me. ;)

I LOVE that he will try any gluten free thing I bake and actually seems to like them. :P

I LOVE the fact that the ocean is my playground now! B)

I LOVE the fact that I know what's wrong, even if it has to be celiacs, cause now, I have a life again! :D

I LOVE the fact that I love myself now! :rolleyes:

It's even cool that someone crazy about music like I am crazy about music actually started a silly thread like this one.

Chelse and everyone else--as LEEANN WOMACK sings so well--I HOPE YOU DANCE--I do feel small beside the ocean and what a wonderful feeling it is!!!!!!!!

I love that my kidney disease has been in remission for 2 years when the doctor told me it would be a miracle for it to stay in remission for 1 year.

I love Jesus.

I love my gluten-free flour mix that allows me to bake yummy food for my whole family.

YAY!

I LOVE...

...that my sweetheart's two days off traveling were in Chicago with me!

...that my best friend is so so so understanding and sweet and supportive about my celiac.

...the triumphant feeling of figuring something out about my celiac through detective work.

...that all y'all seem to love the word "snarky" too.

...that rose in NJ called her doctor an "ahole" in the "hate" post - HA! i love that word! somehow it sounds even ...worse than the one it's supposed to be euphemizing.

...that the drama in the hatin' post resolved itself really quickly and with good feelings all around.

...that i can tap into a free internet signal here at home so i can check in with this community. :ph34r:

...that i'm not sick all the time anymore!!!!!!!!!!!

...that i often get an immediate reaction to gluten - helps me me straight.

...that i have to learn how to cook for myself - celiac is the ultimate motivator.

...that my best friends are opening a restaurant and i'm going to help them make a gluten-free version of their menu.

...yoga!

:D

:wub: I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my husband :wub:

He is the most supportive, wonderful, patient caring person I know and I would be nothing without him. After being together for 16 years I still enjoy going out with him and my friends yelling at us to "get a room"

I am somewhat grateful that I will never have to deal with my youngest running around in a store and getting into everything (she is 7 years old at an 9 month old developmental level).

I love the fact my husband and I are raising a really really great 14 year old daughter who knows right from wrong, has an 4.12 GPA and has the internal drive to be the best that she can be and has a really good head on her shoulders.

I love the fact I never had to be in the dating world (meet my husband when I was 15)

I love that I will have earned a second college degree, while working full time and be finally done in December

I love that I am so so so spoiled

I love that my doctor finally figured out what was wrong with me and that I finally feel better.

I love that I have not been a big wheat eater for the past 3 years and that this disease has not done any damage (just made me feel like crap)

I am grateful that my husband and I have the ability to arrange our work schedules so some one is always home with our daughters and we both can still work (I know, this is a real treat) and we have no life.

I love my life. It has its problems but we are healthy, have good jobs and lead a comfortable life.
