It's a happy Friday!

Happy Friday everyone! I got this blog award the other day from a wonderful blogger - Sihan of Fundamentally Flawed {{{{hugs}}}}
So here's what the deal is: apparently, I've got to answer these questions (nothing like making accepting this blog award a little challenging, sheesh!).
7 Things I say most often:
  1. Knock it off!
  2. Stop whacking your sister with that _______ (most often a pint-sized broom)
  3. Practice piano!
  4. You all need to go outside and play. Now.
  5. You've got to be kidding me.
  6. I'm counting to three. One...Two.....
  7. Hurry up, we're going to be late!
7 things I did before
  1. Got 8 hours of sleep consistently. I can't remember anything else (sleep deprivation wrecks havoc on the brain).

7 things I do now (I'm assuming that most people don't want to hear about diapers and laundry, but there's not much else going on right now....this may be a short list)

  1. Teach 5th grade Sunday School
  2. Read what I like to call "brain-candy" books (no time or energy for heavy stuff) - the Twilight Saga is my current obsession.
  3. Training to do the Disney Half Marathon in January (only 9 very short weeks away - yikes!)
  4. Dream about escaping with my husband to somewhere warm and tropical

7 Things I want to do

  1. See number 4 from above.
  2. Go back to school to get my Masters Degree (in what, I have no idea)
  3. Learn to crochet
  4. Get back into Scrapbooking
  5. Own a business (again, no idea what)
  6. Keep my house clean for more than 5 minutes
  7. did I mention I want a vacation?

7 that attract me to the opposite sex

  1. Sense of humor
  2. Has to be taller than I am
  3. Intelligent
  4. Honesty
  5. Loyalty
  6. Enjoys playing with kids
  7. Nice pecs doesn't hurt

7 favorite foods

  1. My Mom's Lasagna
  2. Spinach and artichoke dip
  3. Pound cake
  4. Chicago-style pizza (How did I ever live without it before I moved to Illinois???)
  5. Pistachio ice cream
  6. Pecan Pie
  7. Prime Rib with Yorkshire Pudding (our annual Christmas dinner)

7 Blogs I want to pass this award on to. These are all fantastic blogs that I've recently discovered and will revisit frequently! I know you will enjoy them, too.

  1. Pantry Revisited
  2. Everyday Cookin'
  3. Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy
  4. Nummy Kitchen
  5. The Food Librarian
  6. Living in the kitchen with Puppies
  7. Baking and Boys

Have fun playing along bloggers!

Thank you soooo much! That is so sweet. I love reading your blog and seeing all your fun creations. The Disney 1/2 Marathon!! That's incredible (and sounds like so much fun - aside from the running, though. :)

Thank you so much for thinking of me, Laura! I'm very flattered! I'll try to get to this as soon as I can.

P.S. I'm Marianne Dashwood, (but I wish I were Elizabeth Bennett). ;)

Cathy said...

So you stop at three, Laura? This must be where I'm going wrong -- I count to five, and it gets me nowhere. I'm trying it your way! It is fun to learn more about you! Good luck with the half marathon -- and congrats on your award!

Andrea said...

Thank you so much for thinking of me and my little blog! I am so surprised and honored! I loved reading your 7 things, I can totally relate to missing the sleep and the never ending diapers and laundry. Your Disney marathon sounds like so much fun! Thanks again, Laura :)

Mo - I'll call you about going to see the movie - I don't want to miss it!

Sticky, Gooey - I wish I was Lizzy too!
