Shannon Dittemore



These things must always start with a disclaimer and here it is: This list is in no particular order AND I promise to forget stuff. Also, I love every single one of my family members. All of ’em. And YOU, yes YOU. See, you made my list! Now, that we all love each other, I’m gonna ramble for a bit.


I love…

God (lots and lots and lots, cause He first loved me, but that’s a whole ‘nother story).
Matt. Justus and Jazlyn.
red and gold on the football field (GO NINERS!).
coffee with hazelnut creamer.
George Costanza.
wearing my jammies to the grocery store.
late night fast food runs.
Peter Pan.
watching my son get lost in a book.
office supplies.
the ocean.
The Goonies.
listening to my daughter rock ‘Thy Word’ with Junior Asparagus.
Space Camp (Hideo Takamini?)
saying “Princess Consuela Banana Hammock.”
road trips.
reading my Bible in the quiet minutes before the kids crawl out of bed.
The Count of Monte Cristo (book, NOT movie).
authors (all shapes and sizes).
Disneyland at Christmas.
Les Miserables (the book, the movie, the musical, ALL OF IT!).
A Few Good Men (and yes, I can handle the truth).
singing in the shower.
Friends (the TV show) and friends (ya know, the human ones).
the telling of stories.
JK Rowling (I know I already listed authors, but… you know.)
that my husband is a coffee (super) freak.
girls night out (Don’t worry. It’s the PG version. Nothing like the TV show.).
Maui with Matt.
starcrossed lovers (the fictional kind).
common sense.
toe rings.
Matchbox 20.
Mr. Darcy (I mean Pride & Prejudice).
zombie books (Weird, right?)
The Cornelia Marie.
chocolate chip aebelskivers (right Pop!).
Fairytale Town.
using the word blargy, which I may have invented.
Apple Hill (You’ve been, right?)
Snuggling with the munchkins (Mine. Not Oz’s.).
wait for it…
chocolate dipped ice cream cones from the DQ.

How ’bout you? What do you love?

    Shannon, you are hilarious and I love this list!! Of course I, too love God above all, then hubby and kiddos, AND THEN? Then, I love me some:

    John Hughes films (mostly Sixteen Candles…can you say Jake Ryan?)
    80’s music-DURAN DURAN forever!
    Using the left side of my brain whenever possible
    Epiphanies while writing
    Wonder Woman (the show, not the comic strip)
    …and lots and lots of food…total foodie over here!

    Again, love your list! Too fun!

    Phew! You make me feel a little better about my silliness, Jenny! Should I admit to never seeing Sixteen Candles? Awful, right! I will get right on that. I’m sure it’s on Netflix. PLEASE be on Netflix.

    We love the exact same things! Plus or minus a few dozen.

    A few dozen! Eddie! Shall I attempt to convert you? 😉
