Ventage Tuesday: Love/Hate

This week's theme was inspired by an email chain started by Angie, who was trying to shake off a case of the Mondays. I'm a list girl by nature, so I jumped right on the chance to make another list of things I'm loving (and a few I'm hating) these days.


backyard fires
farmers market flowers
instagram selfies
snarky hashtags
summer thunderstorms
gin and ginger ale
inside jokes
months that start on Mondays
getting rid of stuff we don't need


summer frizz (every summer I consider shaving my head )
the glorification of busy (if it's important to you, you'll find the time)
4AM wake ups (I'm looking at you Littlest Homburg!)
east facing bedroom windows (see above. the child is light activated.) 
our trash and recycling schedule (two weeks of recycling does NOT fit in our bin!) 
long distance family and friends (why can't all of my people live HERE?!?)
shameless self promoters (look at me!!! look at me!!!!)
carpet (or shall I say carpet that has been used and abused by my dirty little boys)
potty training (but not as much as I hate having 2 in diapers STILL!)
going to the dentist (guess who needs to make an appointment)

For more fun love and hate lists, visit Angie, Barb, Em, and Katrina

I love that we both have gin and ginger ale on our lists. I am hoping Barb's list has this too! :)

I think the garbage and recycling people HATE us because we seem to have the most recycling and garbage every single time.

Your hair isn't frizzy it is just party hair. :)

i'm with you on the love of watermelon. but only when i don't care if i drip all over myself :)
we have to take our recycling to the bins, which seems so stupid, but that said, we usually let it pile up until we can't stand it... i think we could use an actual program around these parts.
happy tuesday!!
