Seven Random Things

Kelly's sweet mother tagged me on seven random things about myself.......

1. I love to look at new houses. I love driving around neighborhoods and catching the open houses on the weekends. I like to think about how I would decorate and paint and that sort of thing. I also like seeing houses that are lived in. You can tell a lot about a person when you see their house.

2. I LOVE babies. The younger the better. I love holding them and feeling their soft skin. I could hold a newborn all day.

3. I think Chili's chips and salsa is the BEST thing in the world. That is my favorite food. I wish I could eat it everyday for the rest of my life. But, I would be on a TLC obesity show.

4. I am an only child.

5. I ate in the school cafeteria from first grade through my senior year and loved very bite. I know that is REALLY WEIRD!!!!!!!!!!

6. I love medical shows and hospitals and all conversations about medical stuff. I am always telling Steve that I am a Dr. I would LOVE to go to nursing school in the near future.

7. I love to play games.

I love this list! It made me laugh real hard. Good thing you will have a newborn baby to hold very soon! :-)
I love chili's too but not as much as you.
And all the time I have spent at the doctor lately kind of makes me want to work there. Not as a nurse - but maybe as the girl who weighs you. That would be super fun!

A TLC Obesity show!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!! I'm laughing so hard at your post! You're funny! Our next lunch we'll eat at Chili's and you can embarrass yourself by drinking the salsa out of the container!

8) I despise chicken salad and I'd rather give up a vital organ than eat it.
9) My cat, Kristen, is demoned possessed and is on crazy pills.
10) I make funny noises when I eat something I really oyster casserole.

11. I like to listen to Keith Green
12. When I yawn - it sounds like a door coming off it's hinges
13. I don't eat sandwiches or salad.
14. I can't stand for my hair to get messed up. It always looks the same - whether I am at church, at the beach or have just delivered a baby

I loved this list and of course the lists Hillary and Kelly added, too. Oh, and I liked cafeteria food, too. When I was pregnant with Evan, I wanted cafeteria dressing so bad!

I love the list. I always LOVED school lunches too. I thought I was the only one. Now, I'm over all three campus cafeterias at our local school district. How funny!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
