10 On The 10th




My good buddy, Mer, hosts this fun blog party every month, and I am so glad that she invited me to join in the excitement. I'm a lover of all things list-y, so this fits me like my favorite white tee shirts.

Speaking of WHITE. I like that color. A lot. White makes me happy. Except when one of my children is wearing it. Because that never works out well.

White is especially dear to my heart this weekend, as Easter is upon us, because I'm reminded once again that I am white........and I'm not talkin' skin. I'm talkin' heart. Because my Jesus is just that awesome. And to think about His sacrifice makes me weak in the knees. Because my Jesus is just that awesome.

So...because WHITE is on my mind....this month you are gettin' 10 of my favorite WHITE things!


10. Clouds.
My favorite are the wispy ones that float high in the sky on a perfect blue day. I'm sure I should remember the scientific name for those (c'mon, smart friends...help a girl out). But, I'm also really fond of the big, puffy clouds that cause my children to imagine dragons, rabbits, and elephants floating in the sky. Or my favorite....when Sawyer saw God. And all I could do was cry. And try not to run The Bomb into the ditch.


9. Sugar.
The real stuff. 'Nuff said.


8. White Daisies.
I love them. They are all smiley. And happy. And perky.


7. Snow.
Now...to be all upfront and honest....I live in Arkansas, y'all. And spent my childhood in the tropics. I've never picked up a snow shovel in my life, have no idea what snow tires even look like, and do not have snow bibs hanging next to my parka in the hall closet. BUT...I think snow is pretty. And pretty is good.

6. The Smell of Baby Powder. Because it takes me back to the day when my dining room chairs went without the lovely seat cushion made of stuck-on Fruity Pebbles.


5. Cream Cheese. Oh my.


4. White Bread. Yah, yah, I know. Eat healthy. Wheat bread is better. Yada Yada Yada. I'm a white bread girl, and I'm stickin' to it.

3. Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.
I'm salivating.


2. Rice.
I could live off of rice. And white bread. And ice cream. And cream cheese. All white foods. Apparently I prefer to not eat color. Unless it is the dark brown of a Hershey bar.

1. Old Navy white tee shirts. My heart cannot even reach around the amazement of these shirts. Ahhhh....shirtfully blissful.


So there you have it. White.

What is your favorite white thing? And I'll let you copycat me...because I totally get where you would!!!!!

How creative of YOU!! I LOVE all of your "white" things and agree w/ many of them! Especially baby powder and clouds (those wispy clouds are cirrus by the way)

I may have to do a color next time...hmmm..

My fave white thing is probably sugar and snow..

Michele said...

What a creative list! I love your blog. Like you, I love the clouds (cumulus maybe?). I LOVE me some cream cheese on just about anything. I love my white bulldog. He actually has some brindle patches on him too, but for the most part he's white. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. This is so much fun.

Mich said...

Come on sister, I know you love salt too! When we were kids we would sneak sugar out of the jar, or I would. I discovered one day, that in your attempt to copy me you had been digging in the salt! :)

I loved your list! Vanilla ice cream. Pass the cones please! Yum!

Kendra said...

Really wispy clouds are cirrus. The ones you pictured are cumulus. I once wanted to be a meterologist, like my dad.

White daisies are my favorite! And of course sugar. And Blue Bell vanilla, though I settle for Edy's half churned to save calories.

You are right: white and boys do not mix. I learned that lesson quickly!

Did I ever tell you about the time my rheumatologist tried to put me on a "White Elimination" Diet? Oh the horror. Did you know that everything that tastes good is white? Flour, sugar, milk, potatoes, rice, cauliflower...ok, maybe not cauliflower.

looks like we share more than a name!

Sandy Toes said...

and let's see....fave white thing....hmmmm....my IPOD

Lori Motl said...

I love your list, too. I think I'm going to have to jump on the 10 on 10th bandwagon. But what 10 to list...

My favorite white thing...the Apple on the top of my laptop...it's a good, comforting thing!

chickadee@afamiliarpath said...

how fun! i love white too. my bedcovers are always white and they make me think of rest and peace.

i don't like rice though. bleh.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Hmm...I thought that those clouds were cumulus, but now I'm not sure after reading some of these comments. But whatever...I love them....clouds make me happy. As does cream cheese and snow and sugar.

But you lost me at white bread and white rice. :) My friends think I'm weird too, but I actually prefer the flavor of brown rice. Crazy, huh?

Another white (or at least sort-of white)thing that makes me so happy is the moon. We love looking at a full moon around here.

What a fun white themed list - I was nodding my head with almost everything you mentioned there so maybe I have a theme for white, too? :) Have a wonderful Easter weekend and thanks for stopping by my blog!

Jim said...

Amb,
White is good! I think of white robes and golden streets. What a combination! Great blog o' 10s. Awesome! And God, huh? What a kid!
Love you.
Dad

Carpoolqueen said...

You had me at Blue Bell.

I officially have a girl crush on you now.

Gretchen said...

What's not to like about this list? I never thought of a love affair with white, but now I'm smitten.

White fluffy towels/hotel robes would be on my list.

And sugar...how I heart thee.

mer@lifeat7000feet said...

Hi Amber! So glad you played along!

I agree with your list, but I'm sick of the snow...it's falling right now and more in the forecast for tomorrow. White Christmas, YES, White Easter? No thanks.

Alison said...

Sad...can't believe I know this, but those "wispy" clouds are called cirrus clouds. I can remember some scientific fact from the 5th grade but not what my own birthday is.

Love the list..especially the blue bell. Great...now I've got a craving for it! ;-)

Becca~TimeWellSpent said...

Ingenius list!
The Blue Bell ice cream I really miss! It isn't something we can find that easily here in Colorado! I grew up in NW Arkansas and though it did snow I have to agree with Mer~it's fun for Christmas but when it's still snowing in April it gets old fast!

Stephanie said...

Oh girl, you had me at the Blue Bell. The ONLY ice cream in my fridge! I guess I'll have to fight CPQ for you. Oh, and I'm also all over Gretchen's white towels/robes. Especially if they are warm from the dryer! Fun list!!

You would LOVE me in person. I'm so white I could use liquid paper for foundation!
