Day 15. Describe when you knew your spouse was the one or how I fell in love. #30things

LOL how I knew... The first time we talked, I knew we would at least be friends.  It immediately felt like I was talking to someone I had known forever.  This was a good thing, since I was planning on subletting to him.  We had a chance to hang out a few times, and we could talk until the sun came up.  I was going on a mini vacay with friends, and crashing at the apartment so I warned him we would be there.  Again, we sat up all night talking.  We had an amazing weekend, Read more [...]

Day 13. What’s the hardest part of growing up? #30things

I can remember being a kid saying I couldn't wait to grow up.  I have no idea what I was thinking.  This isn't fun like I thought it would be. I mean, OMG I love my family but holy sh*t, what a ride getting here. I think the hardest part was the responsibilities and losing friends.  People don't grow up at the same speed, and I think I have lost more than a few friends that way.  But I figure, maybe they will catch up one day.  Every day is a new challenge though. So what do you think Read more [...]

Day 12. Describe a typical day in your current life. #30things

My days were so much easier a few months ago. Back then, the peanut could only roll over... In the past two months, he has mastered crawling and is pulling himself up on everything. Fun. Normally, I get up anywhere between 6-8, depending on if I need the car or not. First thing is to make coffee. I am a beast without it. Usually, right after I finish my first cup, the peanut is up and hungry.  Change diaper and nursing the baby are up next.  Throw a load of diapers in while I have a chance, Read more [...]

Day 10. Describe your most embarrassing moment. #30things

I hate being embarrassed.  It is one of my peeves. I think the most embarrassing moment was my wedding.  Being pregnant, I wasn't the giddy, nervous bride, I was feeling fat and neurotic.  My only request was not to put cake in my face, I already felt unattractive.  But... that did not happen.  He was egged on by my older brother, who thought it would be funny.  He did it.  So, all heck broke loose.  I'm locked in a room crying, hes storming off.  After a long alcohol fueled evening, Read more [...]

Day 7. What is your dream job, and why? #30things

My dream job has been so many things over the years. Going to college, I wanted to be an accountant. I have realized I just don't enjoy it as much as I used to.

Right now, I will settle for Super Mom and enjoy my days with my son. Read more [...]

Day 6. If you could have three wishes, what would you wish for? #30things

Three wishes... hmmmm. Well we all know we cant ask for more wishes, that is always against the rules. But what about more genies? I dont remember anyone saying you couldnt wish for that. Ok, back to reality, in a sense. Wishes, wishes, wishes. I wish I won the lottery, not powerball or anything huge (it would be nice, but lets not get greedy), just enough to get everything in order. I wish I had enough property to have horses, I want my children to grow up with them and responsibilities. Read more [...]
