Today's blog, brought to you by the letter "M"

I have several "real" (read: actual content) blog posts in the works, but they're not ready to publish.

So, Christy was nice enough to assign me a letter for a little midweek meme. She gave me "Z" to begin with, buttering me up with the compliment that I'm "creative enough to come up with some great things," but then she came to her senses and let me work with "M."

So, here we go. 10 things I love that being with the letter "M," in no particular order:

Maternity clothes. They are comfy and styles today are super cute.

Monday night TV. Jim and I got suckered into One Tree Hill after Seth was born last winter, and besides The Office, it's the one show we faithfully watch together very week. Sometimes, I think Seth's first full sentence is going to be "what's under the clothes, Brooke Davis?"

My Best Friend's Wedding. I love Julia Roberts' movies, and this is one of my favorites. I love the concept of the story plot, and the soundtrack to the movie is really good, too.

Maraschino cherries. I could eat them right out of the jar.

Macaroons. I went through most of my life thinking I didn't like coconut. Oh, how sad. Once I discovered the combination of dark chocolate and coconut....heaven!

Matte photography. I do NOT like glossy prints. Yuck.

Macaroni and cheese. I like all kinds: gourmet and blue box. It's probably my number one comfort food.

Massage therapy. It's not something I do regularly enough -- it's expensive! But I LOVE getting a massage -- especially reflexology, where they just focus on hands and feet.

Mustangs. As in Ford. My first car was a white, '97 Mustang, when I was in college. Nothing better than cruising along the gulf coast with my best girls, Sonic limeades in the cup holders and wind blowing through our hair.

Marriage. I'm SO glad my days of being single and dating are over.

If you want to play, I'd be happy to assign you a letter, too!

What a fun list! I think it is so neat you and Sarah have each other. Can you believe you are there now!

Okay, should I play along? Okay, I'll take a letter. (I have big shoes to fill - you and Christy did great! )

First of all, I LOVE macaroni and cheese!!! It is my very most favorite food EVER!! (Intelligent sentence I know) and second of all, I think Seth's first sentence should be "that's what she said!" HA!

Hi Monica! I guess I should introduce myself after I have been reading your blog for sometime now. I am a 2004 graduate of PCC and stumbled over your blog. I remember watching you sing, but never knew you! You are an awesome writer and your son is precious. I taught in Nashville for 4 years after graduation, got married this past summer and am now teaching in Tallahassee, Florida. I miss Nashville SO much...enjoy it! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Great list! Christy is going to assign me a letter and will likely give me the "Z" or "Q" or something like that. I like Monday nights but for the Bachelor, love Maraschino cherries, matte pictures, mac and cheese and definitely marriage. Oh....and the maternity clothes...absolutely!!!!
