10 Superstitions, Traditions, and/or Personality Quirks

1. I have to kiss my hand and hit the roof of my car when driving under yellow lights for good luck.
2. I HATE HATE HATE multiples of 5 so whenever I set an alarm or put anything in the microwave it has to be a weird number like 7:18 or 3:22 I just don't like 5's or 0's.
3. Every morning before my husband leaves I have to tell him to be careful and we always give each other a kiss and a hug and say 'I love you' before either of us leave.
4. When my house starts to get messy I feel like I have really bad anxiety. (dumb I know!)
5. When it snows I have to run outside in a tank top, panties and no socks or shoes just cause I have done it my whole life, I used to make snow angels in bikini, I'm glad I let that one go.
6. My shelves in my closet can't stay organized to save my life, but I always have everyone else's looking great and I'm the one putting everything away!
7. I can't let the kids go to sleep without saying their prayers with them.
8. When I go to the grocery store there is ALWAYS one thing I forget, even if I have a list..UGH!
9. If I see a penny and it's heads up I have to pick it up blow on it and put it in my right pocket and if I have no pockets I put it in my right boob.
10. I have to talk to my mom and my dad at least once a day. If I'm not driving over to see them!

What do you plan on doing with your tax rebate check (economic stimulus package)?

Well right now I know I definately plan on spending it! I think we will use some it to pay rent and then maybe save a little but we are also thinking about planning another cruise soon, so maybe we will do that, or go to Hawaii. I dont really know yet but whatever we do it will be a blast and a half!

I was tagged by Lisa over at the Saturday Social meme go check it out!
and I am tagging my friend Amanda
Happy Saturday!

Before I was a MOM!

I found this on myspace somewhere and I thought I would stick it up here because its everything I have felt...a lot of it today too, my oldest had a fever of 103.3 but I won I got it down quick! I just checked on him and he has been at a steady 98.6 since this morning. THANK YOU GOD!!!

Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn'tstop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel soimportant and happy.

Before I was a Mom
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache,the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much.....before I was aMom.

Name something you would categorize as weird.

There are a lot of things I find weird like eggs, some cleaning products, myself but I love them all the same. haha!


What color was the last piece of food you ate?

That would be light brown and yellowish I had a cracker and cheese yesterday.


On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy being alone?

For short periods of time 2-4 hours I would have to say a 10 but longer than that especially over night a 2, I don't like it at all.

Main Course

Fill in the blank: I will definitely vote for more vacation/family time in summer 2008.


Describe your sleeping habits.

I'm all over the place, on my tummy, back, side and somehow I manage to keep my blankets nice while I sleep so my side is really east to make, but my husband is a blanket hog and he gets all tangled up in them like a burrito and I find myself freezing some nights and wrestling with a sleeping burrito!

Today is a beautiful day!

So this morning my husband had to go to court for his speeding tickets and when we get to 18 its a sea of clouds below us, and the wind was blowing the clouds against the mountain and it looked just like the ocean but with clouds. Then we got down the hill and it got pretty hot, but I just walked through my door and I am about to start working and it is so beautiful outside. I love this right now! YAY!!!

Who is the black sheep in your family/group?
Well we dont really have a black sheep, there are a couple of characters though but all in good fun!

If you were a character from a book, what character would you be?
I think I had this question on another meme, I would want to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid I love the ocean!

What's your favorite accent?
I really like southern accents, they are my favorite, maybe its because my mom had a really strong one when I was little.

Randomness on Sunday

randomness...feed your mind and your blog

week of april.13.2006: what if?
what if....
1. ...you were stranded on a deserted island, name one person you would chose to be stranded with. what would you do to survive?
Well of course I would want to be stranded with my husband, and he is a tree climber so it would be really easy for him to climb up and get us coconuts and he knows how to build stuff so we could build shelter and we would play in the water and hope someone finds us, but we would probably want to be stranded for about 3 days it would be a nice little break away from the kids and our busy schedules! haha!

2. ...you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Oh I always think about this! especially when I'm cleaning, I wish I had the power to think of things and they would just get done with me thinking about it, but only when I want it to so weird stuff doesnt happen. But that would be awsome if the dishes are dirty or I wanted a purse full of $100's so I can go on a shopping spree, or a new car in my driveway! Or the kids to be instantly clean and happy! I could go on forever! if only I had this power....

3. ...you could bring one character from your favorite book to life, who would it be?
Well I dont read a lot of big people books but I have always loved the book Fudge! that kid would be my best friend, or I would want Bart from the simpsons or Ariel from The Litttle Mermaid.

4....you could solve one of historys unsolved mysteries, which would it be?
Sad...but I cant even think of one of history's unsolved mysteries.....but I do wish I could explore the bottom of the ocean everywhere that would be something I would love to know more about because a lot of it is still a mystery!

Saturday Social

What is your favorite season?
i love summer
My favorite season would have to be summer! I love the heat and I love love love love to swim, I live in my swimsuit every summer and I carry about 3 things of sunblock in the car/purse/diaperbag. I keep extra swimsuits in the car for those 'just incase' moments because they happen quite often in my family. I just love how its warm and sunny and fun all the time! yay for summer!!!

Name a color you find soothing.

My favorite color is pink so I fin that soothing to a point but it generally makes me happy, so i think I'm going to have to say a flat greenish brown color.

Using 20 or less words, describe your first driving experience.

The 1st time I drove that I can remember I was about 3 years old and my parents would always let us steer up the driveway (we lived on 5.5 acres) and it was always fun, and my first time driving legally on the street was fun I was pretty slow though for about a week.

What material is your favorite item of clothing made out of?

Cotton it's an apron dress soooo comfortable

Main Course
Who is a great singer or musician who, if they were to come to your town for a concert, you would spend the night outside waiting for tickets to see?
I love music and I'm somewhat of a music whore so there would be a lot of people I would spend the night to see, but right now I'm thinking Cris Cagle, Marc Broussard, Trick Pony, Brooks and Dunn (I've seen them like 5 times) and Montgomery Gentry

What is the most frequent letter of the alphabet in your whole name (first, middle, maiden, last, etc.)?

That would have to be the letter E

Tuesday Toot

So I am posting my toot on my way out the door....again! but I have lots I am extremely proud of myself this week, I have really been working our company really really hard some days I don't stop working until 11pm and I am juggling this between kids (I work either from home or my parents house) my house work (I am happy to report I am still on top of my laundry and I think I have 2 dirty shirts as of this moment, and my house is sparkling) my realty work, giving massages about 2-3 times a week (that was a shock to me too, I have had a lot of friends tell their friends so I have been busy with that, and I go into an office about once a week and do 15 minute back massages) and having alone time with my husband that to me is sooooo important! Also I went and walked/ran 1.5 miles yesterday I had to leave early because it started to get really cold and windy and Jordan's cheeks were turning red and looking chapped. When we got home I put them to bed at 7:30 and my husband and I watched a movie and a couple of shows then went to bed. I am really proud of myself my husband is too. I am so busy and some days tired but since I have been eating better and just doing pilates I feel like I have more energy! So here I go again today, and the kids are already working my last nerve...its going to be a fun one! It's days like this when God gets me through it all! Thanks for reading!

Manic Monday

Is there anything for which you would willingly give your life?
Yes. My family, I would try so hard to not have to just because I want to watch them grow up, but I definately would without hesitation

How would you communicate with someone if you didn't share a common language?
Its really hard I have had to do that before there was a lot of pointing and confusion, I gave in and called my friend who spoke spanish and had her translate, and if I were ever put in that situation again I would just call someone.

Where is your ideal place/location to have a wedding?
That would have to be on a beach! that is where we were supposed to get married, it was fun planning everything and getting the permits lined up, then I found out I was pregnant with Jake and he was due 10 days before our wedding! So there went that idea haha!

ok so I have been away for a week...YIKES!!

I am on my way out the door yet again and I am forcing myslef to get a blog and a meme done! I have been so extremely busy but its all been for the best! I am really happy to report we have gotten even more work and we held our first meeting the other night! It's hard work and I feel like all I do is work clean and sleep with the occasional bite of food every now and then but I know it is going to pay off in the end! So today is a little of a lazy day, i got to sleep in a little even my babies are exhausted I had to wake them up! I will try to check in everynight this week. I am making time for my health and I will be walking/running 2 miles everynight at 6pm with my kids and friends so I am very excited about that as well! take care all I will be back soon! I promise...at least I hope!

Manic Monday

Is there any question you can't look up the answer to on the internet?
I'm know there has been but I cant remember what it was, it was something about the Pomo Indians, I was helping my little sister with a report.
Invent a new word that you feel would improve the language and define it.
This is one of those thinking ones, and my brain has officially checked out for the night, I have a super long and busy week ahead....i make up lots of words throughout my day I say 'poopstain' a lot its what I use instead of 'butthead' or 'Oh S**t' if a bunch of people went around saying 'poopstain' instead of bad words the world might just laugh a little more and its a very versatile word you can use it for just about anything!
What is your favorite texture?
to touch...I love those crunchy baby toys is that a texture? i like touching stuff that is really smooth and soft. especially blankets...happy MM everyone, I will try to be on as much as possible this week but its not looking so great but I have a lot to be thankful for, our company is getting bigger slowly but its getting there so that is where a lot of my time is going. I will comment everyone soon it might take me a few days but I will get to it! talk to you all soon! I have to go to bed now!
