Linky, Linky, Whooo's got the Linky?

Lovin' me some Linky Parties this week!

First Up, Latoya's Let's Get Acquainted Linky - man I missed last week's, but it must have been a doozie, because I'm reading about all kinds of lies y'all told during her party. What's that about???  This week, it's simple:  nouns.  Well, actually, my favorite nouns...as in my favorite person, place, thing, and animal.

My favorite person has to be my husband, Brady.
Y'all, he DROPPED a huge client in "New York City" (say that like on those old Pace Salsa commercials) to be able to spend more time at home with the girls and me.  I am loving that!  He's the kindest, most thoughtful, funniest, and most wonderful husband and father anyone could ever hope for.  Oooh!  That reminds me of "our song",                                                     by Edwin McCain (a hometown boy),
 "I Could Not Ask for More".

That leads me to my favorite place.  The Beach.  Any beach.  Any time, anywhere, with anybody...if it's the beach, I'm there!  Here's "my beach"It's Sunset Beach, N.C., and I've been visiting since I was about five years old.  It's changed a lot since then, but it is still my absolute favorite place to be.  Is it not gorgeous???

So, a favorite thing?  Hmm..... let's see, there's the smell of Pine-Sol, some home-made key lime pie, writing, teaching, learning?  I'll have to say my favorite thing is laughter,
especially when it's my girls'.  I came into my classroom today after school and heard them giggling away.  Pure joy!

And my favorite animal is so easy.  
It's LuLu, the wonder-dog (really my yorkie)...
She's so spoiled, it's not funny, but ya gotta love her!

Now for the biggie - we start SPRING BREAK on Friday!!!  Praise!  So I'm linking up with Brigid's Spring Break Bucket List Linky:
