1. My family.
2. Trips to Disney World.
3. Freshly painted nails, iced coffee, and thunderstorms.
4. Mornings when I manage to wake up before Aria.
5. Newly washed bedding.
6. October. It has almost all the best things of the year - Canadian Thanksgiving/autumn/Countdown to Halloween/kicks off the holiday season/pumpkins.
7. Sitting out on the back porch in the morning with Aria and the dogs, especially in the fall and winter when the temperatures are just right.
8. Breakfast. Best meal of the day in my opinion.
9. Reading and/or baking with Aria - two of my fave hobbies.
10. Movie dates with Chris.

1. Scooping cat litter.
2. Losing my cool with Aria.
3. Unloading the dishwasher.
4. Getting headaches constantly.
5. Meat that isn't well done.
6. Florida humidity and the general lack of seasons.
7. Sand.
8. Too much noise all the time - I need some quiet.
9. Cancer.
10. Losing my glasses - sunglasses in my case. I lose sunglasses more often than anything else. That's why I don't buy really expensive sunnies. I definitely look for cute and affordable when it comes to my eyewear. And, I can help you out in that department. At least with the glasses. Firmoo, an online optical store, is giving one lucky reader a pair of glasses. I have a pair of their sunglasses (and I haven't even lost them yet) that they sent me to review earlier in the year - you can find my post here. Tons of cute and affordable options. Even better if you win a pair, just enter below.

  1. A thousand yesses to FALL!! It can't get here fast enough for me. Also, it total agreeance with you on scooping cat litter and uncooked meat. I don't even like to touch the meat that isn't done well enough....

  2. I love these lists! We are very similar likes and dislikes! Thanks for tagging me! Xoxo

  3. Ha! I love how you tied Firmoo in! I also love my little quiet time on mornings I'm up before anyone!

  4. Ahhh. I can relate to pretty much all of your hates. Especially loosing my cool.... which I may or may not have done already when my girls started fighting five minutes after they woke up :(. Just wait though in a few more years Aria can totally unload the dishwasher for you!

  5. I definitely agree with many of these! Can't wait to do my list! Look for it next week for sure!!!

  6. Loving that hate picture! Lol so perfect! I can't stand too much noise all the time either. Especially at night. I need some downtime. I have a Chatty Cathy for a husband most nights though. Which I love that he wants to talk but by night my head is absolutely spinning.

  7. FALL!! GIVE ME FALL ALL YEAR ROUND!!! Sorry for the all caps shouting. I just miss the season so much. Much like you, we don't have a whole lot in the seasons department, and I know how amazing Fall is. So, not having it stinks.

    And losing my cool with Marcus is the worst.
    I'm totally with you on losing sunglasses. I'm guessing I average 3-4 pair each summer. Who knows where they go? They're kind of like chapstick. You start off with a new pair, and before you know it they're magically gone. I'd totally grab a pair of new sunglasses (with an Rx lens because I am blind :)).

  8. Yay, you did it! Yes to October for the same reasons, but I'm going to chose the last two weeks of October, only becaues the first two weeks usually have one last blast of 90° weather, and then it starts to cool down drastically, just in time for Halloween. I pretty much love all of your loves and hate all of your hates, even the cat liter one, I don't even own a cat, but the few times I've cat watched, it's just smelly.

  9. Great list! I've been tagged by a few people now, so will have to get one of these up this week :) I like your picture choices too. I don't mind unloading the dishwasher, but I hate folding and putting laundry away. I'll trade you!

  10. I could read lists like this ALL DAY! You always learn something new. I hate losing my cool with my girls too. Thank goodness every day starts new again.

  11. I can agree with a lot of this!! I’ve been getting a lot of headaches lately. Not sure what’s going on, but I am over them! And I can’t even count how many pairs of sunglasses I have lost or broke. That’s why I never buy expensive ones!!

  12. Newly washed bedding is the best! And I hate emptying the dishwasher too. Sometimes if I'm the first one to come upon when it's clean, I take out what I need and re-lock it so it looks like I didn't open it. Pathetic. But I just hate putting everything away!

  13. Oh this is such fun! And I agree with you on so many of your loves/hates!!! Thanks for the tag! And yay Firmoo!

  14. Totally agree with October and clean sheets! Ahhh I really enjoy summer and don't want to wish it away but man oh man do I love fall.

  15. I agree with everything on this list! I'm DYING for a pedicure. My nails look so bad and I just love right after you get a manicure or pedicure and how you feel with your nails all pretty. It's the best! And I also hate the lack of seasons. I just bought Mason a bunch of sweaters and I realized he'll probably never wear them because the lowest it gets is maybe 60 here... which in reality is the FREEZING for us lol

  16. Oh my gosh, I hate sand too! It gets everywhere! I just hate it! Blah! Tee hee!

  17. I am ready for all things Fall and pumpkin!! But want summer to stick around a bit - but I don't live in FL I live in OH and I will take all the warm weather I can get!
    I hate sand but love the beach - the best case seneraio for me is a pool on the beach !

  18. I'm so far behind in my blog reading! Love the idea of a love/hate post (can that be one of my loves?). I think you pretty much nailed it with your likes/dislikes. Unfortunately the losing my cool thing has become way more common lately. And sunglasses getting lost/broken is like a weekly occurrence. Joe offered to buy me expensive sunglasses for my birthday and I'm like no thanks, that's money down the drain. At least if they only cost $10 I don't feel bad when I lose them.
