A List Maker's Life: D. Vine, D. Lightful & D. Licious

D. Vine, D. Lightful & D. Licious

I signed up to participate in Heidi's challenge to list 10 things I like that start with whatever letter I am assigned. Seeing how I claim to be a list maker, it seemed an appropriate challenge to take on. Heidi's letter, G, looked do-able to me (you know with my special Gavin, Gibson, Gary, and Grampas...) Well, of course, I was assigned a different letter.

It took a little thought, but I'm ready to share my list of all things D. sireable!

Dad & Diane (aka Mom)~
My dearest parents who taught me what it means to be liked and how to be likeable.

Deli Restaurants~
When I have a choice of a lunch or dinner location I am most likely to pick an off the beaten path deli, where I would choose yummy turkey slices & provolone on wheat bread.

There is not a dessert I wouldn't like to eat, even though I haven't indulged in quite some time. The hardest for me to resist...anything peanut butter, chocolate, strawberry, mint chewy or gooey.

Digital Scrapbooking~
I have always liked to organize my pictures and memories in scrapbooks. In the past year I have really liked the color options, downloadable embellishments, and time saving tools offered in the Storybook Creator Plus digital scrapbook program I use! I like to digitally create postcards, invitations, games, oh...and scrapbook pages.

Date Nights~
Few and far between at this season in our marriage, but I like to spend nights away with my dearest. Our favorite date nights are usually spent in the town of South Haven, MI where we have a favorite beach, a favorite bed & breakfast, a favorite restaurant, a favorite ice cream shop, and a favorite theatre

Dutch Dancing~
Okay, stop laughing at me! I'm serious...
I really like all things Tulip Time and I like that we live close to all the action.

I like to decorate, re-decorate, and find new ways to decorate. I have different boxes of decorations for just about every month of the year which I like to display on a special nook in our home. During each of our family member's birth months I decorate the nook with pictures, books, and treasures unique to their life - tributes to my treasures.

What's not to like about finding a great deal? I do not like to shop, but if there is a deal to be found at the grocery store, in an antique shop, on a blog, in a catalog, or at shopping mall I really like to take advantage.

I like to focus my attitude each day by spending time in prayer & in the Word, to remind me of the things God would like to see in my life.

I like dishes. I like to collect & display them in my kitchen and dining area. I especially like antique dishes: Pink Willow, Delft, or English floral.

You D. Serve a chance to share your heart's D. Sires in a letter list of your own? In a comment let me know if you're up for the challenge. I will email you a letter. When you finish your list, stop back and leave another comment with the URL of your letter post!

  4. Chelle~

    I'll look for a fun picture. Can you email me your email address?

  5. Well, fellow listmaker, it looks like I'm the only one up for the challenge so far...just send me a letter!

  9. Why not, I'll give it a try as well. It would be fun, and I haven't been a very good blogger as of late. Enjoy your weekend, I know we will!
