Weaknesses become Strengths

I have many weaknesses, but these are a few of my favorites : ). And honestly I think they're strengths because I have no desire to get rid of them ; ).

* Football. I love church, don't get me wrong, I really do enjoy going and seeing some of my favorite people. But honestly most Sundays I would truly prefer to sit at home and watch football, including all the pregame and postgame reports. I love it. I drink it in. I analyze. I listen to the hits. I boo at bad calls. I adore it. And giving my parents the opportunity to go to Cardinal (AHmazing) stadium today and have them send me super excited text messages just makes it that much sweeter. Tonight I will be searching the stands for my momma and papa bear in their Viking's jerseys! But really, football: I miss you when you're not here. Those 7 months are loooonnnngggg. And judge me how you will but college is crap compared to NFL.

* Soccer. I defend my sport to the last. I can't wait for the World Cup next year! First soccer kind of unites the entire world. (Let's just put aside the sheer violence that often results from the fans and focus on the fact that the whole world loves it) And I love seeing how excited South Africa is about having the games there. They're like little kids who realize it's their first Christmas. They want to make so much of it and they want the impact for their country to go way beyond just a sport. It's just like the Olympics bringing the whole world together, just with hotter men. And look at how awesome the draw is this year, there really isn't a weak group:
Group A: South Africa, Mexico, Uruguay, France
Group B: Argentina, Nigeria, Korea Republic, Greece
Group C: England, USA, Algeria, Slovenia
Group D: Germany, Australia, Serbia, Ghana,
Group E: Netherlands, Denmark, Japan, Cameroon
Group F: Italy, Paraguay, New Zealand, Slovakia
Group G: Brazil, Korea DPR, Côte d'Ivoire, Portugal
Group H: Spain, Switzerland, Honduras, Chile
Poor group G but yay for us to watch! P.S. totally love the Ivory Coast!! I also would be cautiously optomistic about US' draw but really, we have a knack for disappointment so I stick with my favs.

* Starbucks. Um yum. Y.U.M. I can't even say any more about it because my heaven it just completes my life with its warm goodness. Any day any time I take a hazelnut hot chocolate (yes Abbey you win on that one), a caramel apple cider, or a chai tea latte.

* Cold Stone Waffle Cones. Just the cone. I can really leave the ice cream (don't worry I've already been informed I'm un-American), I really only need the waffle cone. I wish I had the bravery to just order the cone, but alas I don't.

So there we go, a few of my favorite weaknesses. And ya, I'm proud of them.
