these are a few of my favourite things...

about ELC!

In honour of her SIX decades, I wanted to share SIXTY of my favourite things about My Sweet Mama -- though there truly is no end to how many things I love about ELC.

Today, I'll start with 15 -- these are in no particular oder:

1. Her lasagna.

2. Her "Turtle Cake."

3. Her YUMMY salads.

4. Her love of jewelry (especially PEARLS)! Her Nana would call her "Miss Got Rocks" when she was little.

5. Her love of pretty cardinals. They hold a very special place in our hearts!

6. Her love of glitter -- especially glittery eyeshadow.

7. She ALWAYS finds the best Hallmark cards for any and all occasions.

8. And she mails said cards with the most "appropriate" and perfect stamps. She puts a lot of thought into her stamp purchases.

9. Her handwriting. It's impeccable.

10. Her passion for country music.

11. But also exposing me to many others -- like The Beatles, James Taylor and The Carpenters.

12. Our shared-love of Adele and Pink.

13. Her not-so-secret wish of singing the National Anthem at some kind of sporting event -- be it a baseball or football game.

14. Introducing me to Designing Women.

15. She always reminds me to put on lipstick, pack an extra pair shoes if I'm wearing some that are new and potentially uncomfy and to stand up straight. I love her for those little reminders.

Please stay tuned for the next installment!

Until then, have a HAPPY day!
