8 things

Kelli from Outside My Kitchen Window tagged me. She lives in the same city that I moved from a couple of years ago. We never met while I was living there, but I wish that we had! We'd get together for Craft Club...

Anyway - here goes:

8 Things I'm Looking Forward to...

1. Going to the beach with our friends in a few weeks!

2. Going back to work in the Fall at the preschool. 'Cause man I need some spending money...

3. Seeing my little sister graduate from High School next month.

4. Hearing Charlie say, "Mama" for the first time.

5. Getting the yard looking all pretty and stuff. Do you think we could make this work in the budget?

I'm thinking that the envelope will have to be a little stretchier to hold the cash for something like that.

6. Going to ITALY next year for our 10th anniversary. We're already saving...and saving...and saving.

7. Taking some sewing classes

8. Calling Dave Ramsey and telling him what I think about his stupid envelopes that we're DEBT FREE in a few months.

8 Things I did Yesterday...

1. Went to our little friend Miller's 3rd birthday party where I helped his mommy hot-glue ribbon reins on hobby horses.

2. Brainstormed various excuses for avoiding doing the laundry.

3. Drank waaay too much Diet Coke. Because I need it now to continue living. All of my major organs are totally dependent on Diet Coke to function properly. It's super healthy.

4. Heard that my sister made the cheerleading squad at Ole Miss!!! I'm soooo proud of her and can't wait to go to football games to watch her cheer next fall. I guess that means I have to be a Rebels fan now.

5. Ate a Sonic Butterfinger Blast. I figured I needed to do it now, cause after I stop nursing, I have to go on Butterfinger Blast Lock Down.

6. Watched The Gilmore Girls - oh how i love it...

7. Got reaquainted with my Google Reader. Would you believe that it said 341? What?!? Someone needs to go on Google Reader Lock Down.

8. Fell asleep in Avery's bed with her. While having my hair twirled. tightly. That's how tired I was.

8 Things I Wish I Could Do...

1. Sing well. With David. Preferably like her

2. Sew things like this

or maybe this

3. Take a shower without worrying that my house will be destroyed or that Charlie will lose an eye.

4. Finally get the guts to paint and distress my armoire.

5. Get paid to do things like: read blogs, craft, watch TV, and shop. I would be a very rich woman. and happy.
I would be oh, so happy.

6. Go to Archiver's by.myself.
And spend an unlimited amount of money.
But not MY money.
Someone else's.
Someone who lets me keep everything I buy.

7. Go to a New Kid's On The Block concert. Yep. I'm admitting it. I'd sing "hangin' tough" with all those mini-van mommas and not think twice.

8. Blink and make things magically happen. Especially when it comes to cleaning the tub. or painting ceilings. or changing diapers.

8 Shows I Enjoy...

1. The Gilmore Girls (why did you leave me???)
2. Lost (even though it confuses the heck out of me)
3. The Office
4. How I Met Your (wait for it) Mother
5. The Young and the Restless. (I know, I know...)
6. Burn Notice and The Mentalist (It's a tie)
7. One Tree Hill (why won't they leave Lucas and Peyton alone already?)
8. The Celebrity Apprentice

8 Friends I tag...

Housewife Savant said...

I enjoyed your lists.
I've heard of the Ramsey Syndrome that makes all your organs run on cola.
The good news is; you'll survive - the envelopes. (The Diet Coke might kill you.)

Wendi @ Every Day Miracles said...

Fun to get to know you better! :)
I heart Gillmore Girls too. How cute are they. That dialog! :)

Kelli said...

Love your list. You and I would have definitely hung out! I can't live without Coke like you and Diet's a necessity. I just may have to ask you to catch me up on Y&'s been too long...something about Kay not being Jill's mother???? Love Lost and can't wait for it to end so I can finally see what it's all about.
Man, you were tired!

Kelli said...

Oh and if anytime you're back at Easton, we'll meet at Archivers!

Elizabeth said...

Yes! Let Lucas and Peyton be! Grr. Have you heard this may be the last season? I don't know how I could go on without them...

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

Don't we all wish we could sing like Carrie? I'd take lookin' like her too.

Emily & Amelia said...

NKOTB are coming to Mud Island soon!!!!! I'm sure I could find some old, priceless, buttons we could wear!!

misty said...

dirtwonthurt said...

Hey, I'm Stephanie and I found your blog through Married to the Ministry. My husband and I are on staff at our church doing worship, and it's nice to "meet" other women/moms in the same boat. If it's ok, I linked you to my blog (i'm new at this.)

BTW, my husband has a New Kids on the Block shirt. We had an 80's night for our small group and he found it at a local thrift store :)

sunflowerlin said...

I also would like to get paid to do all those things!!! How come the world doesn't work that way?

I bought a sewing machine during the black friday rush and I am trying to remember how to sew... I was taught in junior high which was about oh....13 years ago!

Brittany said...

Thanks for tagging me! I hope to get mine posted tomorrow.

I love your list!

I wish I sang well too!
I hope God thinks it is a "joyful noise..." It certainly is "noise!" :)

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Hey, I think I'm gonna do this one - fun!

Love me some Carrie Underwood - so much beauty and fantastic vocal ability all in one little person. So not fair.

Ha! If you figure out a way to get paid to read blogs, let me in on it.

Italy? For real? That is my dream vacation (well, one of them). You are goign to have a BLAST! Keep saving saving saving!

When we finally became debt free (except for the house) I wanted to call in and scream - but we didn't. Wish we would've now - it was the best feeling in the world!

Beth@Not a Bow in Sight said...

I am a Gilmore Girls fan too :) I love the "Jess" episodes :)
