My Favorite Things

This post contains non teacher related things that are favorite to me.
7 things to be exact!

1. I am obsessed with HGTV: Cash and Cari, House Hunters, Crashers (House, Yard, or Bath), Secrets from a Stylist, Antonio Treatment, Selling New York, Income Property, and Dear Genevieve. I suppose you get the point. I am lucky my husband wants to be a super hero and decides that he, with NO skills at all, will get 100% motivated while watching the show and decide he is going to turn our home into a Renovation Reality.

2. When I am not watching HGTV, you will find me in the yard. I live on Fleming Island with such lush foliage. Citrus trees, Strawberry patch, Sago Palms, Ferns, Bottle Brush, Iris and Lilies, and Philodendrons are among a few lavishly productive green growing on my property.

3. I am programed to LOVE antiques.  I didn't have the typical child or teen bedroom growing up.  I had a bedroom set from the mid 1800s.  Each year, my family would pack up and visit Renningers to go antique shopping in Central Florida.  Tiger Oak is my absolute FAVORITE!  It has now become a passion for my husband.  

4. Interior Decorating with Neutral Nautical is my cup of tea.  A cream linen pinstripe sofa, Hampton tan chair with cream pipping, sail boat giclee prints on drift wood, reclaimed wood flooring, air plants of all varieties, coral and shells stacked inside glass lamps with linen shades, and rustic lantern lighting accent my tropical delight called home. With the St. John's River flowing east of my house and the banks of Dr. Lakes a few steps of my front door, I am fascinated by all the natural wonders that coastal living has to offer.

5. Living along the Atlantic Coast, I love taking advantage of it's rich beauty.  Whether its lounging on the pontoon boat or jumping the waves on a personal water craft, my husband and I enjoy hanging out on the water.  

6. We are adventure seekers.  My husband and I love to ski (water or mountain), mountain biking, white water rafting, hiking, rock climbing.  Just yesterday, we were wake and knee boarding in Olustee Florida.  We will sign up for an adventure race at any time of the year.  You often choose three events to compete: kiaking, biking, running, swimming, climbing, etc. and complete.  Have you ever heard of the mud run?  Although you may not think the pictures look fun, the event support multiple sclerosis.

7.  Crossfit workouts are what put me to sleep at night (and a little blogging).  Crossfit is designed as a full body explosive.  The principal strength and conditioning program  was originally designed for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.  The program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive.  My husband is a law enforcement officer and CrossFit has taken over our lives!
