Seven things I love tag!

I have been tagged by Europafox to name seven things I love and then tag seven bloggers to do the same.
So here are my seven "things" 

I love when my husband and five children are all under one roof, doesn't happen enough these days.

 I love playing a sport rather than exercising. If I'm running? Someone better be chasing me!       

 I love helping people or connecting people with what they need. It could be a new dentist or a job opportunity...it doesn't matter. It is so satisfying helping someone find a solution to a problem.

I love my business. Most of the time. I really enjoy going into the city on buying trips, to the Gift show, or different showrooms- looking for the right items to sell. I love getting to know my customers and then looking for items that I know they would love. I appreciate making money to take pressure off my husband during these "two in college" years.

 I love that my parents and my four sisters are so close and that we all make an effort to remain so.  Geography is our biggest obstacle.

 I love seeing instances when my children achieve- in sports, academics, socially, work, love ...all of it. Not for bragging rights, but because I feel as though my husband and I have done our job.

I love that my husband and I are still married so many years... it's not always easy. 
We all know that. I really love my husband and love knowing that he thinks our marriage is as important as I do- even during rough patches. ( funny how the rough patches coincide with the years we had more than one teenager!)

Now I tag, (when you have a chance or have writer's block) seven bloggers:

Tami-Miller family Blog: seems like she has some good stuff going on!

Ina J. Offret- I know animals/dogs will be on her list :)

Ronda- Stella's Mom- She will have a dog item as well!

Only Half Nuts- She likes reasons to write AND dogs will be on her list too!

Pink Martini- this will be a way to get to know her better :)

Frau-West family Adventures: She is my sis!

The Preppy Princess- I have a feeling something fashionable will be on her list...

Have fun and anyone not listed?
 Feel free to jump in as it does help to write these type things down. Helps me to prioritize!

Hi Patty! I'm glad we are on a first name basis! I really like your header, it reminds me of all the fabric I have been looking at all week. You have good taste!

Hi P2! Thank you very much! I have been gone for 3 days out of 4 but just light long enough to gather goodies and head out again. I will put on my thinking cap and have some fun. Thank you for thinking of me.:)
