Lovin Where I Live

My friend Meredith did this on her blog several months ago and thought I'd steal her idea. Here are the top 10 reasons that I love where I live. I hope I can come up with 5!!!

1. Love being able to get anywhere in 10 minutes...except for Amber's house :( (Wish you lived closer)

2. Not much shopping therefore not too much temptation to spend money. E's glad for that.

3. Our waterpark...I don't think we realize how lucky we are to have it here.

4. Having the resources of 2 Universities is wonderful especially as my kids get older.

5. We have a great sports complex for our kids.


Top 5 things I don't like about my town.

1. Not much shopping....it keeps me out of trouble though.
2. Not many restaurants...also a good thing b/c we don't need to spend the money to eat out.
3. Not a lot for the kids to do besides parks but that's ok...we love our parks.
4. We make friends and they move...bad thing about a University town. At least 4 of our closest family friends have moved in the past 5 years.
5. Gas prices. They are always at least $.10 higher here than any of the towns around. I don't get gas here unless I have to. They don't realize they are hurting our towns economy more.

I love your town...loved it when I went to college there, loved living there again, and will always love it!

Some of my favorite things are:
1.That water tower that boasts "A Great Place to Live" or something like that.
2. Lake Degray
3. OBU football games
4. Going out to eat and spending more time visiting than eating
5. Walmart--it's a social outing
6. Wells Shoes until they went out of business
7. Homecoming and Christmas parades
8. GREAT water park
9. Great doctors and dentists
10. FRIENDS!

I wish I lived closer, too. :(

Our little town is pretty great, isn't it? It gets so frustrating wondering where all the shopping and restaurants are when we do have a 2 college town....but, it does keep up out of trouble!!

Can't wait for our WaterPark summer!!

I agree with Meredith. I love your little town. Did you know I've lived there twice? My parents were non-traditional students at OBU. I attended K-3 grade there. {..sigh..} If there was a place for my hubby to work I'd move there in a heartbeat!
