Link Up Party - Six Things I Love to Do at Home

Let's get this party started!  It's time for our "Nice to Meet You!" Link Up Party.  I want to hear from you today about the 6 things you love to do at home.  I'll kick us off with my top 6:

1. Start the Morning off with Coffee
I can't start the day without just one cup.  I am particularly fond of French Vanilla or Hazelnut, and it always tastes best in my "H" scrabble mug!  If I'm lucky enough to sneak in a few quiet minutes during the girls' breakfast, I love paging through my favorite magazines while finishing my coffee.

2.  Play, Play, Play
Staying at home with a 3 year old and a 1 year old means much of my day is spent playing, watching the Disney Channel, or (most often) picking up toys.  Oh to be a kid again!  I particularly have fun playing board games and doing puzzles with Stella as she is getting older.

3. Taking Care of My Rooftop Garden
We don't have a yard, but we love spending time on the roof.  As you can see, the girls are usually helping out with the daily watering of the container garden.

4. Tinkering Around
It was my constant tinkering on some type of DIY or craft project that led to the existence of this blog!  I love working on little projects and try to squeeze them in whenever I can - often during Hazel's naptime and with Stella helping me out.

5. Reading Stories
Both of my girls love their books and going to the library is a regular event for us.  I love to read myself, but since I don't have much time to read novels anymore, reading with them is just as fun.

6. Dining Al Fresco after the "Work" Day
Once the girls are in bed (by 6:30 if we're lucky), Ross and I try to have our dinner and a drink outdoors as much as we can during the warm months. Nothing like the view of the Chicago skyline at sunset to help you unwind after a busy way!
