Things I believe in...

    This is a totally random list of things that I think are important in life

    - for me.

    They may not be for everyone, but hey, this is MY blog...

  • always sending thank you notes
  • being on time
  • planning ahead
  • ... but still leaving room for spontaneity aka drama!
  • celebrating birthdays in a big way, any year every year
  • don't give a gift you wouldn't like to receive yourself ... or buy for yourself
  • having a signature piece of flair
  • parties should always have a theme
  • Tailgating, even if you don't go to the game, it's ok to plan that from the beginning too
  • I was baking cupcakes before cupcakes were cool!
  • love at first site probably does exist but most of us are all too silly to realize it
  • what alcohol can't cure, shopping can
  • you should be well versed enough to cuss someone out with actually cussing and without them really knowing you are
  • you should expirement in the kitchen - Taco Bell is pretty much always open if you burn something - that gives plenty of time to air out the house while you are gone too.
  • VOTE!!!
  • you should have a dog before you have children
  • yes, you really can relate everything in life to any number of episodes of Sex and the City!
  • babies and husbands do NOT make you complete, nor do your friends have to like them, they are both fulfilling and wonderful but not the only answer to a perfect life
  • no one has the perfect life
  • everyone has a 6th or even 7th sense to know when something is not right with you or with your friends - USE IT!
  • be loud, it normally works out well
  • there is always something to watch on Food Network and the History Channel
  • baking for someone is always appreciated
  • ghosts really do exist
  • Catholic School is a good thing!
  • you should always have TWO books in mind in case you are ever asked what's the last book you read
  • the limb you're out on... it might break, no matter how high up you are
  • you don't have to buy something off the registry if you don't want to, just make sure your gift is great
  • wrapping is part of the gift
  • always give to local charities
  • we should try to fix our own country before we try to save the world
  • Karma is HUGE and it will kick you ass - there are different kinds of Karma, I've learned parking karma at work from Nancy, Liz and I strive to achieve the highest level of dog karma
  • shopping in each others closets is one of the best ideas we've ever had
  • no matter what religion you are, you should read The Bible - that's on my list of things to do - I admire my mother for having done this multiple times
  • Your true friends will always be there for you no matter what, men will not be so make sure your man is your best friend!

I like the way you think! I second everything you said, even though I often fail at #'s 1-4 (among others).
