Well, I've been tagged by Amy to complete this list :)

* 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 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 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.

I love your answers and getting to know you better. I share a liking of Krispy Kremes myself.

There are a lot of sayings in the South such as "we had went" that drive me nuts.

That was fun to read! I laughed out loud- well not too loud, it's late- at the part about making the bed!!

Courtney said...

That was so funny...sounds JUST like you. I love you Lyla. I can totally relate to the bed thing. Michael is the WILDEST sleeper, the sheet on his side of the bed is always pushed to the very end of the bed. I really don't understand how that happens. I feel like I am very "aware" of the covers at night. Know what I mean? Thanks for tagging me!

Dee-Dee said...

That was fun to read. I am right with you on the addictions part or the list!

You crack me up! Thanks for tagging me. At least you have already answered my" what happens when I get nervous" question for me. Actually, I think we have several of the same answers except I get annoyed with people who say "see what had happened was..." Love you!!
