The Letter of the Day is F

When I was really little Sesame Street was my favorite show. I knew what time it would be on, I'd grab a slice of American Cheese for my snack and sit down and watch the whole show. One of my favorite parts was the letter of the day.

My cyber friendRobyn posted this meme and I thought it'd be a fun little addition to the blog, especially with Thanksgiving less than 24 hours away. :)

Here's how it works: You leave a comment on this post, and I'll assign you a letter. You write about ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter and you post it on your blog. When people comment on your post you assign them a letter and the fun continues.

I was assigned the letter F so here are 10 things that I love that start with the letter F:

1. Family: Of course I love my family but Dirk and I have just recently been talking about how thankful we are that we have family that lives close (and some that doesn't) that we are super close to and enjoy hanging out with. We have a lot of friends that don't have this opportunity and we are very blessed by our relationships with our families.

2. Friendship: Mostly the friendship that I have with my hubby. When times are tough and romance isn't practical, at the end of the day Dirk and I are still best friends and that's what keeps us going, along with, of course, our reliance on the Lord. I also love that we can have family members that are close friends that is super important. Lastly, of course I love my friends.

3. French Fries: Okay so yes I am a health nut and I try my hardest to eat uber healthy but I cannot pass up a really good french fry. It is my weakness and it is the truth. Typically when we go out to dinner (which isn't super often) I don't order very healthy and of course my food will include french fries. It's a guilty obsession.

4. Fellowship: I love that we have friends that we can fellowship with and a church that we LOVE to fellowship at. We are so blessed by our church and by the solid teaching of God's Word.

5. Finish Line: I LOVE that I am almost at the finish line to complete my schooling. Only a few more weeks and I'm DONE!

6. Fish: Although we don't eat it very often, I love to eat fish, especially salmon.

7. Finger Foods: (why is this all relating to food???) I am the queen of snacks. I like anything that I can eat with my fingers and preferably dip into something. Cheesy Artichoke dip with Pita chips, Bruschetta on Baguettes, Chicken Fingers, Fried Zucchini, the list goes on.

8. Freshness: I love freshness. That might sound weird but it's true. I love fresh air, fresh food, fresh fragrances and of course the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. :)

9. Fragrance: This kinda goes along with the freshness but I love fragrance. I love perfumes, lotions, plug-ins, fragrant foods, etc. Most memories are brought back to me through smells, even if it's just the smell of rain on the asphalt. I love fragrances.

10. Fridays: When you are a teacher Fridays are usually pretty fun. The kids take a couple of tests/quizzes in the morning and the afternoon is usually saved for some kind of activity. Then after school is out you have the whole weekend to look forward to. Fridays give me a sigh of relief. (Thanks babe for the idea!)


  1. Woo! I'll jump on this fun bus, as long as you don't give me something like Q or X!

  2. Jen, you can have the letter L. Can't wait to see your post :)

    P.S. I didn't know you and Justin had a blog, you guys should post on it!

  3. Oh! I want one too! Good idea, but gimme an easy one. My brain's a little mushy.

  4. Alright Holly, you've got the letter D. Can't wait to read it :)
