25 Things about me:) part 4

21. I love tomatoes. When I was pregnant with Bo, all I wanted was a ripe homegrown tomato. But it was December when I finally got that craving. 

22. Target and Old Navy are my favorite stores. I like the cheap funky stuff.  Although it's not so cheap when you buys cartfuls at a time:)

23. I wish my sisters were my neighbors. Pretty sure I know what Matt would think about that, but he works during the day, so his vote doesn't count.

24. When I turned 16, my parents let me drive their car to school. All my friends had these cute little cars, while I drove the longest, bluest Cadillac you have ever seen. I don't even remember what year it was, probably early 90s. I was totally embarrassed by it, but everyone else seemed to think it was cool.

25. Matt and I have not bought one single piece of new furniture since we've been married. Our mattresses and the boys mattresses are new but that's it. Everything else was either given to us or it's second hand. I kinda like it. Nothing really matches. 

So there you have it. I'm glad that's over. I don't think I could have done that in one sitting. I could barely squeak out those last five....could you tell? :)

Here's a flashback of Baby Bo. He was about 9 months old here. Love this of him. That mouth is just like his dad's.

25 Things about me:) part 3

Ok, so it's been awhile! This is honestly harder than I thought it would be. Here we go....

12. I am a nervous wreck when my husband drives my car. I can't even watch the road. I just sit there with my eyes closed. I cannot tell you how many times I've shrieked in horror, just to be told that he doesn't need my sound effects! I know that he drives a semi for a living. But even though people stop for the semi in the middle of the road, does not me that they will stop for my suv!

13. Speaking of suvs, I secretly wish for my van back. Do NOT tell my husband. 

14. I love to eat out. Any time I get a chance, lets go!

15. I talk to myself. a. lot. I guess that's why I like to blog. I don't seem so insane this way.

16. I get spring fever really badly. I hate being cooped up in the winter. I just want to go outside and play. I think that my kids feel the same way. That's why we've been taking walks in the 40 degree weather.

17. I am sorely disappointed that people on tv are starting to get younger than I am. And I'm not that old!

18. Since having my boys, I now have the attention span of a 4 year old. Movies are just way to long to sit through. The last movie I saw in the theater was Dukes of Hazzard. Bring on the DVR so I can fast forward through the commercials.

19. My brother and sister have some of the biggest laughs I've ever heard. I love it. You cannot help but laugh with them, even when they are making fun of you.

20. I am impatient and a procrastinator. Go figure.

That's all for tonight! Sorry there's no pic. Blogger was taking way too long....see #20.

25 things about me:) part 2

6. I am shamefully addicted to tv. That's right. I hate admitting that. I have to watch it before I go to bed. What's even worse is that "Heroes" is my favorite. I can't help it. Oh, and the first season scared me so badly that I couldn't watch it at night. 

7.  I cry all the time. Movies, sad stories, heck, happy stories. I don't think I can make it though a family holiday without crying.  I even cried during the last presidential election. You can make your own assumptions on whether it was a happy cry or a sad cry.

8. I love to play games, board games, video games, sports, cards. But
 I'm also very competitive. I'm learning to control that...I think:)

9. My best friend from high school and I still see each other about every month. If not, we at least talk on the phone. We went to school together from kindergarten on. She knows all the yucky stuff I've done but she's still my friend anyway. Love you, Emma:)

10. I hate winter time. I hate snow too. I want warm weather, hot weather. My dream vacation would be to sit on a beach and do nothing. Matt would never go for that. Pretty sure I will never get a vacation like that. 

This is Slone at about 7 months, I think.....

Which brings me to...

11. I always thought that I'd be able to remember things, i.e. dates, who's in that picture, where we were. You know the things that you said you'd never forget. I don't remember them. They are gone, long gone. I can remember thinking, "why can't Mom remember if that's me or Charity in that baby picture?" I'm sorry, Mom. I totally understand.

25 things about me:) part 1

This is stolen from Facebook. But I hate that website. It kinda gives me the creeps:) But I'm still addicted. I'm going to do this in little installments though. Hey it's late and I've got to go watch Heroes and Chuck (I'll explain in the list:)
Oh and I hate post without pics so here's one of me and Slone at Christmas this year. 

1. I talk to my mother at least once a day. Sometimes 3 or 4 times. My sisters all come in at a close second. If one of them doesn't answer, I go down the line until one of them does answer. 

2. I think that my husband is the best looking guy in the room...any room. I always have. The first time I saw him I about died. Had to meet him. Yup, pretty sure I loved him right then. 

3. My children, I love them.  It makes me feel like SuperMom when Slone volunteers an I love you. Or when someone tells me how wonderful and polite my children are. (That is until my 4 year old calls his uncle a "psycho".)

4. I use the word "psycho" way to much.

5. I hate doing the dishes. More. than. anything.

to be continued...

Happy Birthday, Turbo!

Yup, tomorrow my little Bo is two! I can't really believe it. Honestly, it really seems like he should still be this little helpless, but oh so loud baby. Well, he is still loud. Look at him here all grown up with the spiky hair. 

We had his birthday party on Sunday afternoon with family. He acted really grown up. He also ate a lot of cake. Speaking of cake, here's a pic of the cupcakes that I made. 

No, I can't take credit for the little Bo heads. But I cannot for the life of me find the blog of the mom who did it first. Obviously, I have spent i.e. wasted a ton of time reading blogs. Here's the link where I got it from. You can get it for free. But Bo loved having his face on the cakes!

Birthday party fun! Thanks cousin Adam:) Oh yeah, and his daddy took care of the spiky hair. He shaved it all off on Sunday morning!
