25 Things I Like About Myself

My friend, Jenn at Juggling Life took up the challenge to write 50 things she liked about herself - and did it in 14 minutes. Sue at My Party of 6 let me know it was okay to only list 25. And to take a little longer. That's more my style. So here we go;

1. I'm a good writer

2. I'm pretty

3. I've been taking better care of my body and it's starting to pay off

4. I'm getting better at yoga

5. I have set aside my natural tendencies to be a night owl and choose to be pleasant in the morning

6. I cook reasonably well-balanced meals most nights

7. I'm pretty good at compromise despite being a Virgo

8. I picked out good names for my children

9. I'm a good speller

10. I use grammar correctly in speaking and writing

11. I've taught my children excellent manners

12. I'm a good daughter, mother, wife, sibling, and friend

14. I'm very good at Excel

15. I make my bed every day

16. I tan easily

17. I have big brown eyes

18. I'm a good organizer

19. I enjoy learning

20. I have good taste when decorating

21. I'm a fun drunk

22. Parenting has taught me to be more patient

23. I picked the best person to marry

24. I'm learning to be more flexible

25. I wrote this whole list without putting in a single asterisk

I created this list in one sitting with one minor interruption to mediate a video game dispute. Hey, I never said I was perfect!

GREAT list! Being a fun drunk is a quality I appreciate in people! I LOVE your blog tagline... your brewed... ha! Excellent. I'm glad you found me and vice versa. (I'm a little self-conscious about my inappropriate use of ellipses here :-)

And PS, thanks for the link!

We would have a ball decorating or #21!! :o)

This was great. And you had 5 in one sentence so you came up with more than you thought.

The list of people I want to get drunk with gets longer every day!

Oooh, now I want to see a picture since you're pretty and have big brown eyes... Mysterious... Also, since we both indulge in the grape, when we gonna get drunk my wine-loving sista?

This is quite an impressive list. You forgot "I have an awesome sense of humor."

JCK said...

This is great! I have a few of the same - including big brown eyes and being a Virgo. Now THAT explains why I find it hard to compromise.

Cyn said...

Right now I only like one thing about myself... my kids don't play video games. *wink*

(Why am I so envious of #16?)

Manic Mom said...

I can attest to #20, being that I was the beneficiary of your paint color choices!
