Favorite Things Friday

It's Friday - one of my favorite days of the week. Since it's a favorite day, I figured I would share some of my favorite things right now.
1. The smell of freshly baked bread.
2. The crisp cool air, and the changing leaves (the photo below is Nidda, the town where I teach - photo credit).
3. A nice, warm cup of tea (I know I say this all the time, but seriously, it's the greatest).
4. Spending the entire day with Hubby.
5. Getting pictures of our kitty with opposable thumbs from my MIL and seeing how much he's grown since we had to leave him behind.
6. My nephew. Isn't he the cutest thing in the world?
7. Good books. Reading this one, need an English one to keep my brain from frying. Speaking of which, I've been looking for something to read. Any ideas?

So there you have it. Those are a few of my favorite things today. 

Funny conversation with Hubby last night: 
Me: Honey, I feel really overwhelmed with love for you. Do you ever feel that way? 
Hubby: Yeah, sometimes I look at you and I'm like, yeah I really love that girl.
Me: Me too, except I'm like, I really love that boy. But sometimes I wanna punch you in the face - but then I remember how much I love you and how sad I would be if I gave you a black eye or a bloody nose... 
Hubby: (totally nonchalantly) Yeah... sometimes I want to rip your eyeballs out of their sockets and strangle you with your eyeball tendrils... 
Me: (completely flabbergasted, trying not to laugh) Honey? I think we should sign you up for therapy. 
Us: HAHAHAHAHAHA (<---- that's us bursting into laughter)

*Yes, after this conversation took place I typed it into my iPhone so I could remember it and post it.
*No, Hubby is not violent, and neither am I. Nor are we psychopaths. We just have a really weird sense of humor, which would be why we both laughed ourselves to tears after this encounter.
*This conversation happened after staying awake for almost 36 hours straight (we did have a 2 hour nap), so we were extremely sleep-deprived and a little loopy.

haha, I enjoyed hearing reading your conversation....no worries. My husband and I definitely fall into the category of "weird sense of humor" as well ; )

I'm so glad we're not the only ones! I realized after I posted that conversation that it might be a little... weird to other people! hahaha
That's crazy! I've never heard that last name before! Do people ever say "Hardner?" Because people always get my last name messed up and say "Gardner." It drives me crazy.

I would get "horner" super awkward, and a pain to correct, hahah

Haha, yes... that would be slightly awkward for sure!
