This post brought to you by...

...the letter "H"! I stumbled upon a fun little word game and decided it would be fun to play along. Faith gave me the letter "H", so here are ten things I love that begin with "H" (in no particular order)!

1. Hot Showers

I begin here because this is just how I like to start my day- with a nice, hot shower. It's a strange dichotomy- so relaxing yet so energizing, all at once. I actually like my shower crazy hot. It's no good unless my skin is pink when I'm finished!

2. Highlights

I've said it before- something about having your hair freshly cut and highlighted just lifts your spirits. I ♥ highlights! I think I was meant to have highlights in my hair at all times. I feel so drab otherwise!

3. Handmade Things

Darn you, CSPIA. I do not have the money in my bank account to buy out Etsy before February 10th. What is a girl to do? This butterfly apron dress is just one of 32,627 things I would like to buy for the girls. It is made by pishposhgirls. If anyone wants to buy one for Sassy, I am totally game!

4. Harvest

I have always been a fall kind of girl. What time of year is better than fall? Having lived in Iowa, and now Kansas, I have come to realize the innate beauty of the harvest. These rolled-up bales of hay and the clouds and the skies... just breathtaking!

5. Hedgehogs

I am a firm believer in things being so ugly, they are cute. Exhibit #1- the hedgehog. I mean, c'mon... this picture says it all. That is the cutest ugly little wrinkled thing I have ever seen. I almost want to squeeze it... but that might hurt (him and me...)

6. Harry Potter
...and Hogwarts, Hufflepuffs, Hogsmeade, Hagrid, Hedwig, Horcruxes, even He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. My mom sure had to twist my arm to start reading these books, and now I am die-hard. Team Gryffindor!

7. HuHot

...and any other fun food establishment where you can build your own stir-fry. Yum! I can almost taste the yummy pad thai sauce covering those delicious sprouts now.

8. Holidays

Really, I love them all. There is so much to do, fun family activities, great opportunities to spend quality time with my family- both immediate and extended.

9. Home

I am a go-getter and I love to do new things. Having said that, sometimes it is the BEST just to be a homebody! I love our house, and I can't believe we have been homeowners for a year already! We are still working hard to make very part feel like "ours". Can you believe that this is the most inclusive picture I could find of the front of the house? For shame...

10. Harper

Last, but not least, of course! Remember when I told you all about little Harper in my 100th blog post?? Well, you all have got to visit Harper's mommy's blog to see what fantastic strides she has made in her 11 days here in this world. She is so precious and beautiful, and I am overjoyed that she is progressing in the right direction!

So, there you have it... my top 10 "H" things! If anyone wants to play, leave me a comment, and I will give you a letter!

What great "H" things. I love hot showers too, and my husband gets mad when I use all of the hot water - oops! I am so happy about little Harper as well!

I have to agree about the hedgehog.
