10 Day You Challenge: My 9 Loves

Today I'm linking up with

The subject today is 9 loves. I looked around at the different link ups just to get a feel for what other bloggers love, trying to get some inspiration for my own. I mean there's lots of things I love but it's pretty hard to narrow it down to just 9 things! But here I go:

1. My boyfriend. 

He is my best friend and the best thing that has happened to me. Tomorrow is our 4 year anniversary!
I just realized this picture was totally taken a week after I had my wisdom teeth out so my cheek is a little swollen. Oh well I still love this picture!

2. My parents.

My mom and I are really close and I would consider her my friend, but she still knows when it's time to be my mom. I don't know if that makes sense. Me and my dad don't always get along but he's a great dad and is always willing to drop everything to help me.

3. My grandparents.

I was the only grandchild for 16 years so to say they spoil me might be an understatement. But that's not why I love them. I lived with them for two years while I went to college in Texas and used to spend summers with them when I was younger. I've just always loved spending time with them. It might be because I lost my other grandparents so young that I really cherish the time that I have with them. I've even been trying to convince them to move here but no luck! 

4. My boyfriend's family.

There's 2 brother in-laws and new nephew missing from this picture. I love that the boyfriend has a big family. Being an only child I definitely missed out on the big family thing. And yes even though we're not married I definitely consider them family. 

5. My puppies.

You've already seen enough pictures of them. They are definitely one of my loves. I have always loved dogs and will definitely have them for the rest of my life. German shepherds and pugs are definitely my favorite breeds if you couldn't tell. 

6. Alpha Omicron Pi.

I love AOII for a million reasons. But the most important one is the bond I share with my sisters. It really sounds corny but it's something that I will always love. 

Let's get a little less serious now, shall we?

7. Hearts.

I love hearts. Hearts on anything, coffee mugs, towels, office supplies, anything. I may or may not have a heart tattoo. I also may have the product below sitting on my desk.

8. Military Coming Home Videos

I love to watch videos of soldiers coming home to their families. I can't help myself I always watch them. They just remind me of the sacrifice that people are making for complete strangers.  I also can't help but cry like a little baby, no matter where I'm at. This picture gets me every time.

9. someecards and hey girl. 

I love these things I don't know why. I can't explain it but they're hilarious.
