* Maybe I should... get a tan, and finish a few of the things that I have been writing on my weekly "to do" list for way too long now.
*I love the smell of...babies after a bath, coffee in the morning, and hot krispy kreme doughnuts
*People would say that I... tend to exaggerate, am always busy, have a hard time letting some things go, and can be extremely anal about things.
* I don't understand why...God made mosquitoes or cellulite, or how anyone could ever harm a baby or child.
*When I wake up in the morning...I cuddle on the couch and watch cartoons with Lilly and Mamie.
*I lost my will power to...exercise.
*Life is wonderful with...a husband who brings the groceries home every night, and when (extemely rare, but wonderful) all of the laundry is put away, a clean house, and nothing to do but enjoy spending time with our two little girls.
*My past made me...want to raise athletic kids (since I clearly am not).
*I get annoyed when...I reach for a box of something in the pantry and it's been put back empty. JON!
*Parties are not...something I know very much about anymore.
*Dogs are...the greatest people on earth.
*Cats are...not good for much besides making me sneeze and itch.
*Tomorrow I am going to...go to a baby shower for Jon's cousin, Allison.
*I have a low tolerance for...slow drivers and people who say "we had went."
*I am totally terrified of...ghosts, flying, roller coasters, and wearing a bathing suit in public.
*I wonder why I thought my life would be...easier! Like I was going to be a little stay at home mom who lunched with her girlfriends once a week at the Puffy Muffin while a nanny kept my kids--HA! Babysitting for all those rich moms in college ruined me!
*Never in my life...would I try to have a baby without an epidural.
*High school was something that...I would love to be able to go back and do over NOT as a dork.
*When I am nervous...my chest and neck get red and splotchy.
*Take my advice...and never ever microwave anything plastic.
*Making my bed is...something I do daily and (I wish I could post a picture here for you to fully understand) a HUGE chore after Jon sleeps in it all night. It's basically like starting from scratch--the sheets are all pulled out and half of the comforter and pillows are on the floor.
*I'm almost always...out of time.
*I'm addicted to...krispy kreme doughnuts (especially chocolate), candy bars, slice & bake cookies, coffee, potato chips, lemon cake, cokes, sweet tea, and pizza. (mostly health foods, as you can see.)
*I want someone...to do all of our laundry. Actually, I'll even wash it and fold it--it's just the putting away part that I HATE.
I tag Courtney, Casey, Kim, and Jennifer S.

Congratulations to my parents who celebrated their 35th anniversary on Monday!
Ellie and Lilly dancing while Kerry played the guitar and sang. Lilly takes her dancing seriously. Her favorite show is "Dancing with the Stars."

Let's see...what to wear with a brown gingham bubble? I need the pink feather purse, the straw purse, the floral purse, the black purse, and oh yes, one yellow high heel. Yellow is a big color for spring, you know.
My two sweet girls. One funny note--since "mother's day" Lilly has been calling me "mother" constantly. "Mama" and "mommy" have fallen by the wayside and been replaced (unfortunately) with "mother." I'm hoping it's only a phase...
How we spent our mother's day
Mamie and CJ playing with bubbles. Mamie does NOT ever want any help, which makes for very messy bubble time.

Leaving the house without a brown, wet, smelly, rotting blanket hanging out of my child's mouth: PRICELESS
It's official! Lilly has now been "off the blanket" completely for about three weeks. I felt like I had to wait to celebrate in case there was a relapse, but she has done great. It amazed all of us. She was SO attached to it and had NEVER slept without it once--naps or nighttime, but she somehow (with the help of bribery) breezed through giving it up like it was no big deal. I am so proud of her and so relieved. I have dreaded having to take it away for months now, but we decided it had to be done when they said something about her teeth developing an overbite when we were at the dentist. She is so proud of herself and has told everyone. She had to tell her teachers, friends, every family member, and even the lady at Target ALL about sleeping without her blanket. She is so proud of herself and so are we!
