Small Talk Six...speaking of GREEN

Note: Thought I'd published this post yesterday, but somehow I only saved it as a draft.

Over on Mom Blogs, they have what they call Small Talk Six. Every Saturday a new topic is announced and you respond to each topic with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences, 6 paragraphs, or 6 photos, whatever your heart desires. You can check out the Small Talk Six announcement to see all of the pre-scheduled topics for 2009. Don’t forget to stop by and see this week’s responses!

This week:
6 things you love that are green

1. Frogs. My Dad loved them, and he passed it on to his daughters. We always remember him and his humor when we see frogs!

2. Green beans. I thought I hated these until my neighbor Erika made them breaded and fried. Now, they're one of my favorite appetizers. Especially from TGIFriday's. Yummm!

3. Grass. I LOVE walking on a nice lawn in summer, feeling the grass under my bare feet. The smell of freshly-mowed grass always takes me back to my childhood, too.

4. Money. That's a duh answer! While it may not buy love, it sure does buy a lot of the THINGS I love!

5. Green Mile. The movie always makes me cry. Oh goodness..the compassion and pain and love in this movie. One of my all-time faves.

6. Green lights. When I'm driving in the city, I LOVE hitting all the green lights. It's like it becomes my lucky day. I have zero patience...totally Type A. Green lights are my friend! LOL

So there's my 6. What are yours?


  1. Great list of green things. Let's see if I can think of 6 - new buds on trees, tulip leave pushing up through the dirt, my son's eyes, my favorite green tank for summer, fried green tomatoes (I know they're not green after they're fried, but...) and green m&ms!

    You were ahead of me on the SITS roll call!

  2. how fun! I wpuld add kermit the frog, but for the most part we have similar favorites :)


About Me

My photo
I first joined the Marine Corps in February of 1999. I was stationed at Camp Pendleton for three years and in Okinawa for one. I left active duty in 2003 and joined the Reserves that year. I had my first daughter in 2005, and moved from California to Massachusetts in 2006. I left the Marine Corps at that time, and had my second daughter in 2007. I reenlisted in the Corps in September of 2008 and went Active in 2009. I'm currently stationed back in California, loving the weather and the life!
