Monday Listicles 2.13.12

“Hey, baby, nice listicles you’ve got there!”

Brandi said that to Laverne in a comment last week. See even more then the listicles itself I love reading the comments you leave for each other. I love that you visit everyone else’s blogs and that you are so very funny. I love Monday Listicles.

As you can tell, I am overusing the word love. Must be because this week we are talking about LOVE. To compliment the theme Jackie chose last week, PASSION. Thank you again Jackie, it was such joy to read about passions we share.

Guess the natural progression would be marriage and babies, but it is not up to me. It is Wendy’s turn to choose. She is expecting a lovely baby, so who knows…

Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to find Wendy among the bellow linked blogs and see what she says next listicles will be about. In case you are not sure who Wendy is, she is twisted, domesticated and very funny. A devoted mom, wife, homeschooler and NorthWesterner. She is also currently on vacation!

But before you start writing next weeks edition, there is a small matter of love:

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!

First 10 reasons I fell in love with my (now ex) husband
(okay, so this is in the past, as we were married for 5 years, but I do remember what I noticed about him... but also what changed. We have been divorced many years, but hey, I'll play along this week...

1. His smile
2. His eyes
3. The way he made me feel
4. He cooked dinner
5. He did laundry
6. He loved me for who I was
7. He told me I looked sexy
8. He did work... occasionally
9. He was caring
10. He made me smile.

Okay, so after THAT learning experience... let me tell you 10 things I look for in guys nowadays, that make a difference...

1. Their smile - it says a lot
2. Their eyes - they can tell you so much
3. The way they treat me
4. Their sensitive side
5. If they are self-supported
6. If they have a steady (REAL) job
7. They do not have a criminal record or warrants for their arrest.
8. They do not have kids they don't support
9. They are caring and are not afraid to be honest
10. They accept myself and my son as a package deal.

So... there you have it...


  1. Great and eyes drew me do my husband...can't be a great smile. Happy Valentines Day with your guy.

  2. I love how you compared your ex with your current wish list.

  3. i love the two lists. As we mature, we seek for other things. Not better things, just different. And #10 on your list is so important. I wish you find a man who ticks all ten, but I wish #10 first and foremost!
    happy love day Tere xo

  4. I like how you can remember what you loved about your x husband.


I would love to have you leave me your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by.
