Last Favorite Things Friday of 2010

If you are looking for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway, please go HERE.

A day early but I know tomorrow I'll be crazy busy. Here's my Favorite Things Friday post. Once again, Ms. Pyjamas has scooped me on the favorite things post I was planning for Favorite Things Friday. I am seriously concerned that (a) we think so much alike but more importantly (b) I keep losing out because I'm a day behind her on the timeline.  That's just wrong. She's always winning.

That said, I've come up with a new one. Are you ready? Here it is.

One of my favorite things is, ME! 

Yes, you read that right. Me, I love me. I love me even when I'm criticizing me and I love me when I'm laughing at me; becuase I can laugh at me.
I love me because I chose this man to be my husband and it's been great, even when some moments haven't been.
I love me because in my mind's eye, I still look like this even though my rational brain reminds me 30 extra pounds results in a different mirror image. I think it's funny (until I try on clothes and look in a mirror in the store... then I think it's the mirror. -wink-)
I love me because I don't care who sees my drinking problem, er hobby, er happy hour?
Singing, "Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me."
I love me because, well, because I'm supposed to love me.

Now you. You say this sentence out loud, "I LOVE ME."  

There, now don't you feel better? It's good to remind yourself you love you (and I'm sure you do but you thought it would be too self-centered to admit it) every now and then.   So there you have it. I'm sharing my love of me with you so you can share your love of you with yourself.

And if you followed that, I am toasting you and wishing you a Merry Christmas (because I'm Catholic and that's my fall back but you can substitute whatever Holiday you want) and a Happy New Year!

Cheers! Beck

Ah, he reads your blog...how wonderful! Is that last photo of someone famous? Looks familiar.
Yes, we should love ourselves.
Reminds me of my post today, where Samantha says to Smith, "I love you, but I love me more"! Your happiness shows!

Awwwwww Becks...I love you too and this was such a brilliant post. I laughed so hard your happy hour comment...and showed my Mum what you look like (I'm sure she thought "finally a face to go with her incessant ranting of Becks this Becks that" ) Im pretty sure she was really stoked you werent an imaginary friend.

Oh and I love that Australia is so ahead of every one except NZ . It means Im almost always first. Thats my compensation for living at the bottom of the earth.
