What I Hate about What I Love...

 I love everything about the grand canyon... I hate when Jeff goes near
what looks like the edge and acts like he's going to fall off.
Somebody smack him for me!
I love autumn in Wisconsin, the pretty leaves, cool crisp air, sweaters, jeans & new boots...
but I hate how quickly it turns into a very long winter.
I love when Jeff, Myself and the kids all go outside together to ride bikes or just
hang around in the yard...  I hate how we all have this disgusting smell on our 
skin that makes me want to vomit when we come inside.
I love my kids sweet little voices when they tell me random things... I hate when one
of those random things is "Mom, I gotta poop, as they are running to the bathroom
." WHY the need to tell me?
I love that my kids are all potty trained...
I hate that we apparently forgot to train them to flush the toilet.

I love going to California... but I hate when I go expecting this sunny beach
palm tree covered dream and end up in 60 degrees, cloudy wearing jackets.
I love coming home and filling up my fridge & cupboards with groceries...
I hate that most of them are gone by morning.
(at least all the snacks)
I love graphics, writing, creating, making new friends on my blog...
I hate being up til 4 in the morning some days keeping up with it all.
I love taking my kids to do fun things...the park, the movies, etc...
I hate when they end up complaining the whole time.
 I love taking nasal spray in order to breathe...
I hate that I'm an addict and find it hard to breathe without it.
I love directing dramas and being creative at my church...
I hate that my stomach turns every time we are "on stage"...
and even more so when I am not the one acting. So weird. 
(Probably because at that point I have no control) 

I love getting excited for Girls Night Out & going to see a cute boy 
& story in some new chic flick ;)
I hate when the storyline or events make no sense and are lame.

I love this idea - I'll have to try it out soon. Gosh, we have so much in common, it's crazy!

I love the part about stocking the kitchen with groceries! I keep a dry erase board on my fridge and if someone in our home eats or drinks the last of anything or notices we need/want something they are to write that down on the list. Well, my favorite thing to do is erase those items on that list when I get home from the grocery store. I HATE when I look at it the next day and there are already more things we need! LOL!

Katie said...

Haha... 'why the need to tell me?'! I hate that sweaty outside smell too... but it's so worth going outside :)

I LOVE this post! I HATE the smell of being outside once we're back inside and I LOVE making new blog friends, too - like you. ;) Can I send my daughter to your house so you can potty train her? Would that be weird since we just met? ;)

Hannah Hurley said...

I hate going to the grocery store because after I get home I want to eat everything I bought.

I bet you do a wonderful job with the productions at your church.

Maria said...

I can always count on coming to your site and smiling and laughing. I loved this! And your photos are always so beautiful! You must have a million all over your house! I lol @ the kids telling you they have to poop! Bc my friend's kids do it all the time...and possibly, Steve and I may announce it to one another too. Haha!
Snacks always go first around here too :)
Have a sweet Wednesday, Julie!

Hi! I'm here from the link up.

I hate it when I go grocery shopping, get home, unpack and feel there's nothing I want to eat. :)

San Diego is weird for that weather. It is a relaxing place regardless. :)

these are so cute.
california beaches are totally unpredictable. :)

Lindsay said...

OH, the sweaty outdoor smell is the worst!

I was surprised how cold the California beaches were when we went a couple of Junes ago! We're already at 100+ degrees here in South Florida. YUCK.

I am also addicted to nasal spray. Thank god I am not alone.

posidanielle said...

Fun post! I love when my little one talks to me, but I hate when she says she has to poop too. Why do you need to tell me this? You know where the bathroom is! I'll be in to wipe. haha.
Last time I was in sunny San Diego it was cloudy and chilly as well, thankfully not for the whole time.

I hope you are having a fantastic day!
