Writer's Workshop: Current Loves...

You know the old song right: "Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. Brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things..."? Well if you don't then you are missing out on a great movie (I digress). Below, is a list of my current 5 favorite things...enjoy!

1) The Tibetan Mastiff

So the other night while Prez. O was talking, I decided to find something else to watch and ended up watching the Westminster Dog Show. I love watching dog shows and I love seeing all the dogs (even though sometimes I find them very weird looking!) I love dogs! Well, this kind of dog was on and I simply fell in love with the beautiful big puppy called the Tibetan Mastiff. Personally, I like big dogs but when I think big, I think Golden Retriever - but when I say the mastiff on the dog show, it was at that moment I decided I will own one someday.

2) Coke Zero

Technically I have liked this drink for a long time. But it's only been recently that I have deemed it my favorite soda - winning out over Dr. Pepper and regular Cherry Coke. I am obsessed with this drink...I. Love. It.

3) Shout

How can I NOT love this stuff? With an 8 month old that always gets more on him then in him, I enjoy spraying Shout on all of his garments. Sadly we have some permeant stains on some of his bibs (this is before I discovered the amazing power of Shout!) but that's least his clothes aren't stained!

4) Confessions of a Teen Idol

This show is on VH1 and it brings together former Teen Idols in an effort to reintroduce them to the world of being an A lister. It's really interesting seeing this idols realize the different world there is as a celebrity. To be honest, I don't really recognized an of them, except for the one from Grease 2. But I like seeing them learn that things are different and be honest with their struggles. It's slightly addicting at times!

5) Baby Lap Time at the Library

So almost 2 weeks ago I took Parker to lap time at the library. I fell in love with it. I would have taken him Monday again, but we had our great car issue of 09 (lets hope it remains the only car issue!) and then Parker got sick :( But I have been trying to do some of the stuff at home with what I have. Parker seems to do well with it. I love it! I am hoping to start the habit of taking him every monday (or as much as I can). He enjoys it and I want him to get in to reading and love it. Unlike his mommy who sadly, only just took to reading recently (and when I do read, I am picky!). I actually want him to read like his daddy (who I tell daily that if he reads anymore his head will explode!)

So there you have it my current 5 favorite things (in no particular order). I could have gone on to name a couple more things, but I stuck with these 5.

So now it's your turn...

For you newbies it's never to late to jump in!! Here is what you must do. Choose a prompt that inspires you most. Write. Come back Thursday and paste your blog URL into the Mister Linky that will be up...this way anyone can click on your name and head over to your place to see what you wrote.

Feel free to write on more than one prompt if you so desire. I do it all the time, but it's my game...and I don't know how to it should be expected. And remember the more comment love you give, the more comment love you get so comment comment away.

The Prompts:

1.) What was the first CD (or record or cassette) you ever purchased? Write about the way that particular album made you feel then. Write about how it makes you feel now.

2.) You were recently laid off. Instead of moping around, you've viewed it as a chance to start fresh. Pick a new career and write about your first day on the job.
3.) List your five most recent favorite things.

4.) I'm hungry. Share your very favorite recipe!!

Head over to Mama Kat's site after you have chosen your prompt and post your post to Mr. Linky!

My husband is ADDICTED to Coke Zero. He says it's incredible with lime!

AND, what a mircale baby you have! I have a special place in my heart for preemies, especially micropreemies.
