25 Things...And a Linky Follow Blog Hop!

First, here are my 25 Things for today.

Below that, we're participating in a Linky Follow Blog Hop.
What's that?
Read on past the 25 things below :)

1. I'm glad that we haven't had very much snow in Chicago this winter.

2. I think I would be happy moving our West - but I would need all of my loved ones to come with.

3. That won't be happening anytime soon. (But, a gal can dream.)

4. I'm sometimes amazed at how much my decorating style has changed over the years.

5. I'm style confused.

6. If you look at my Pinterest boards, I pin both soft feminine cottage looks and heavy rustic masculine looks.

7. I think a blend of both is "my style." (Which isn't a style at all, is it?)

8. We have a list of things our family wants to do / visit on the back of a door.

9. We barely make a dent because the list gets longer all the time.

10. We don't mind :)

11. I have 2 overdue books - I use the library system a LOT!

12. My library just started an online "Wish List" so you can make lists of books you want to request.

13. I can't figure out how to add anything to the wish list.

14. I'm a computer technician, by trade. (Ironic, no?)

15. Thanks to strategic coupon use and stockpiling, we have a low grocery budget.

16. But, we waste too much food. Spoiled leftovers.

17. I need to start planning out food menus.

18. I hate the inflexibility of food menus.

19. Perhaps I'll make batches of cooked proteins and freeze them, instead.

20. I could survive on crusty bread and butter. (I’d be willing to try.)

21. I had a whole series planned centered on healthy inexpensive winter cooking.

22. And, winter never came. Gah!

23. I'm not ready to start decorating for Spring and Easter.

24. I'm starting to pour through my lists of blog ideas - collected over the winter.

25. I'm darn excited about the upcoming posts!

Linky Followers Scoop!

By now you've probably heard the rumbles and rumors. There's change underway.
Google Friend Connect is going away real soon and so will be the ability to keep track of and view all your favorite blogs in your reader.

In an effort to not loose any of our fabulous readers, Cheri over at It's So Very Cheri has started a Linky Followers Blog Hop.
