Our two child things (5 and 2) are currently in Hawaii, but we are a military family, and we live where the Army tells us. This blog is designed to keep us in touch with our family and the friends we have made along the way, to offer insight into our turbulent military lifestyle, and to share our experiences as we try out "homing school." So glad you stopped by!

Seven on the Seventh: Romance Is...

I like reading lists on other people's blogs. Maybe it's because I'm a list person. Things just don't get accomplished around here unless they are on a list. And, oh, the joy! Drawing a little check mark beside an item on my list brings such joy! I never cross them off, no, no. That would be like an annulment...like it never happened. A check mark means: been there, done that, checked it off the list.

But that's not what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about how much I enjoy lists on blogs, and so I have decided to create a monthly list on mine. It shall be called: Seven on the Seventh. It will be just like a David Letterman Top 10 List. Except I'm not nearly as witty as David Letterman. And there will only be 7 items on the list.

If there are any other bloggers who'd like to join in, leave a comment or send me a message. I'll send you the list topic ahead of time, then you can create your own Seven on the Seventh List, and it'll be fun to compare. :) If you want to participate this month, just do it! And then link it so I can check it out.

In honor of Valentine's Day, the first Seven on the Seventh will be "Romance Is..."
It's in honor of Valentine's Day, but also in honor of my husband, who thought my recent post on our very un-romantic 1st anniversary did not portray him in a positive light (so I deleted it, but then he said he was just kidding...he thought the post was funny and made him remember the times when he was young and carefree). Without further ado, I present to you, in honor of my husband (who is not the type to recite love sonnets, but who has his moments):

Romance Is...
7. Waiting until I go to sleep to watch scary zombie movies.
6. A box from 1-800-Flowers on the front step.
5. Surprising me with an oreo shake on Easter Sunday because I had just gone 40 days with NO ICE CREAM!
4.. Telling me, completely earnestly, that I should try out for Miss Texas.
3. Cleaning out the milk-filled sippy cup discovered under the backseat of the car.
2. A static-filled phone call from the other side of the world, when he's exhausted after a hard-day's work but wanted to stay up a bit longer just to hear my voice.

And Number One...drum roll please...

1. Saying, "You go take a nap. I'll take care of the kids."

I like your idea of 7 on the 7th. No. 1 and No. 3 are my favorites of your list!
