"N" the House

Jenn from First Comes Love... Then Comes Marriage has a fun game going over at her blog and being a game lover, I couldn't wait to play! Here's the rundown: If you want to play, leave a comment on this post letting me know, and I’ll assign you a letter. You list ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter, and post it at your place. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on and on. Jenn gave me the letter N, so here we go...

One. Nail polish ~ I love having lacquered nails. For lack of a better description, they make me feel so polished. Reds, pinks, golds, neutrals... I love them all! Nothing is more feminine to me than having perfectly manicured nails (just please don't look at my cuticles).

Two. Novels ~ I am such a bookworm. Chick lit is my favorite because it's such escapism. I'm rarely without a book (or two, or three) in progress. I would adore writing children's books one day.

Three. Nesting ~ I love spending the day at home just piddling. My house is still such a work in progress, which is frustrating but enthralling at the same time. Picking paint colors, fabrics, interior decor... sigh... so much fun!

Four. Notebooks ~ My favorite thing in the entire world is shopping for school/office supplies. Seriously, it took me well over an hour at Target to choose my 2009 planner. My final choice? A zebra print with pink piping. Adorable? Oh yes. And, besides, who wasn't completely obsessed with Lisa Frank?

Five. Necessities ~ One of my other favorite things in the entire world is picking out toiletries. I never use the same shampoo/conditioner/face soap/bodywash/etc. consecutively. I get so excited to be near the bottom of a bottle because that means I can pick out something different. I think I have too many favorites, so this way I can keep mixing it up.

Six. Non-alcoholic beverages ~ I also enjoy alcoholic beverages, but non-alcoholic counted as my "n" and encompassed my addiction to diet soda. Any kind (except Diet Mountain Dew and/or Diet Sundrop). I prefer sodas with multiple flavors (Cherry Vanilla Diet Dr. Pepper or Black Cherry French Vanilla Diet Pepsi Jazz, for instance), but I'm not picky.

Seven. North Carolina ~ I was born a Tennessee girl, but it didn't take long for the Carolina of the North to completely steal my heart. There's no where I'd rather be.

Eight. Nephews ~ Boyfriend has the world's most precious nephews. I've always wanted girls, but any time spent around these two little boys makes me re-think my plan.

Nine. Naps ~ I'm not usually a napper, but Sunday afternoons provide a perfect time to rejuvenate and recharge my batteries with a delicious piece of shut eye. Add a ridiculously fluffy pup and a snuggly warm blanket, and I am out.

Ten. New comments ~ One of the best parts of my day... seeing what you all have to say about Polka Dots & Protein Bars!

So fun... what a great idea! I want to play :)

I kinda feel like we are the same person almost... I LOVE nesting/decorating, notebooks {all things school supplies... hello, I was a Lisa Frank-aholic back in the day!}, necessities {I am the SAME way... I never get the same product}, my drink of choice is Diet Coke, and I LOVE Sunday afternoon naps.
