A Giveaway, Things I Love, and Where I Blog

Crazy Ladies Primitives is having a giveaway for Valentines Day. A winner will be drawn on February 1st. Click on over and sign up! It's a really cute giveaway!

I was visiting Zaroga's blog the other night and she had a post about the letter G and things she loved that began with that letter. I'm almost always up to a writing assignment (if time permits), so I told her I'd like to play along. She assigned me the letter H. I'm supposed to name ten things that I love that begin with the letter H. It was a little more challenging than I thought, but this is what I came up with:

1) Heavenly Father - First and foremost, I love the Lord and I can't imagine living a day without his guidance in my life.

2) Husband - There's no doubt in my mind that he was created for me....I love him with all my heart and he's so good to me!

3) Home - You can probably all tell that my heart is at favorite place to be.

4) Homeschooling - I love having my kids here with me everyday and sharing in all those learning moments. I really do love it!

5) Hanging out with my family - Well you know I had to get my family in there! I love spending time with them!

6) Hugs - I love hugs....they can just make my day!

7) Holy Bible - I love having God's Word to guide me through life.

8) Heirlooms - I loved things that are passed down from the past....treasures that are sentimental.

9) History - I love history...reading about our past. It's something I never really learned in school, but am really enjoying it since we've homeschooled these 14 years!

10) Hills - Actually the mountains, but that didn't start with H! :) I love the mountains...that's my ideal dream home spot!

And here's a few more just because I'm on a roll now! lol!

11) Hoosier Cabinets - I've always loved them. I don't have one, but would love one! (I love yours Rondell!)

12) Hardwood Floors - I love my hardwood floors....and wouldn't trade them for anything (please take all my carpet!)!!!

13) Having a blog - I really love having a blog and visiting all of yours!

14) Health - I love the fact that my family is healthy and I'm so thankful for it!

So what about you want to play along? If so, just say so in your comment and I'll assign you a letter. If not, that's okay too, I still love hearing from you in the comments!

Linda showed us where she blogged (which I love by the way) and challenged us to show where we blog. Well I do have a computer nook, with a desktop, but rarely ever blog there because it's up in the loft away from the family and I prefer to be near them. So most of the time, you can find me either here:

Sitting at the dining room table (in that end chair closest to you)

Or here:

In the recliner on the right...that one is mine...Jason's is on the left!

I know it's not very interesting, but that's where I blog 99% of the time! Every once in awhile when I need to use the scanner, I do go upstairs. (I'll show you that another time.)

I hope everyone's safe and warm! As I type this (and schedule it to post), we're expected to have ice through the night and in the morning....we'll see!

Have a great Wednesday!

Thanks for sharing your blogging spots around your house !I enjoyed your list of H things that you love!I know how you feel about homeschooling and loving to be with your kids. I couldn't imagine my kids not being at home with me~ I love it too! Go ahead and send me a letter and I'll play along :-) I hope you guys didn't get too much ice last night ! Have a great day Tammy !

Mel said...

Love your list, and your favorite blog spots. We do not own a laptop, therefore, I blog out of the upstairs office.

Love, being at home myself, it is so warm, (even when outside temps reach below zero, as the case has been all of January) and comforting inside this old barn.


Janene said...

I so love your home...Do you ever get tired of me saying that?
What great "H's" to be thankful for!
I'll play...go ahead and send me my letter!

Heather's Stitches said...

Your home is Beautiful!! What great H's, I wish I had the willpower and patience to Homeschool..I have thought about it with C having so much trouble at school.


wrcdgc said...

Well, your good at this alphabet game. Not sure if I would be but go ahead send me a letter. I need something to keep the brain going.

Every time I see pictures of your home I want to come and see it in person. It's so cozy and inviting.


Debbie @ said...

Hi Tammy, great post. I like your letter H and all your list of things. Hope you are warm and have a cozy day!

Sue said...

Loved this list. I've done an "I Love" list but this one is different. Send me a letter and I'll play when I return from my trip this weekend.

Shellmo said...

I loved all the things you listed under "H" ! And of course I always love seeing pictures of your beautiful home - and now I know where you blog from! : )

the primitive country bug said...

You came up with some wonderful favorites for the letter H! I may just have to challenge myself with that, though I'm not very creative when it comes to blogging. Can you send me a letter??

We're in the midst of another big snowstorm as well. Kids are home from school, I'm working on my website in my pj's beside the cozy wood stove. It's quiet and cozy here!
Stay snug and warm and safe from the ice!
Hugs & blessings~ Birgit

Carrie said...

I see on our news channel, that our ice and really cold weather that we've been having has now headed East of us... Schools have been closed here for the past couple of days. I am so ready for the ice to melt and roadways to get back to normal...

You and your love ones stay safe in this cold and icy weather too! Hopefully it won't last very long!

Have a great day Tammy!

Love & Blessings,

The Whites said...

Great post! Isn't it just great to be married to your best friend? I'm finding that out more and more each day!


Linda said...

Thanks so much for the kind mention! When the kids lived at home we had the computer in the family room and I liked being part of the action too. That's the best part about laptops!

Loved your list - home and hubby and so many of them hit home with me too.

Please send me a leteer as well and I'll play along later this week!
hugs, Linda

Hey Tammy..I love all the stuff you found with the letter H..I love your photos too and love your home..I am up for trying my hand at a letter so shoot one at me...:)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Tammy, Did you get that awful ice??? I hope not!!! I've seen some horrible pictures of trees down in Missouri, Kentucky and Arkansas. We had a TAD of snow today, but not much.

I have done both of your ideas (blogged using a specific letter and showed our computer room). BUT--I loved reading your "H" choices. Your hubby is so handsome --and goes great with his beautiful bride.

Stay warm and safe.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Tammy---Check out my blog today (if you haven't done so).. I wrote one on Right Brain-Left Brain.

Tammy said...

Loved your list!
So much fun to see where you blog, too...I use to only be able to blog in the little office area but now my favorite place is with the laptop in the livingroom where it's warm! :)

Julie said...

That was a great list of H things--I am thankful for all that, too. Thanks for such a great post. Julie

Zaroga said...

Tammy you did a great job... the letter H was perfect for you!

When I get a chance I will take a picture of our Hoosier cabinet for you. It isn't as fancy as the one my Mama had nor your friend Rondell's, but I like it.

Lea of Farmhouse Blessings said...

I have so enjoyed reading your list ... I love every single one of things too!


Blessed Beyond said...

Your list is wonderful! It's a true testimate to the person you are! I love the flexibilty of the laptop too, so I can be near the family. I would love a letter, if it's not to late. Hugs and Blessings,
