25 Random Things

Cynthiaa over at Confessions of a Yummy Mummy tagged everyone to do this. So here I go with my randomness:


1: I used to want six children, you know, back before I actually became a mom. I am so glad I stopped at three. They are wonderful and I love them. But three is plenty!!


2: My favorite color is green. Not forest green. Not lime green. Not pastel green. But the beautiful olive green.


3: I have tunnel vision. When I start doing something and am excited about it, I can't focus on anything else. Really. Everything else gets put on the back burner and left to blacken and turn to char. It is baaaaad.


4: I love nursing my babies, but I am so excited to finally be done in about two months. I want my body back!


5: Jon and Kate Plus 8 is one of my favorite shows...I know, I know.


6: Hot cocoa has been my nightly drink of choice for about a month now. I am down to my last 12 packets or so. Guess I need to put that on my list for when I finish my Pantry Challenge.


7: I think I am going to paint my china hutch.


8: It was -4 degrees here this morning. Frigid!


9: I have a red peacoat that I absolutely LOVE.


10: Brad and I met when he started working for my dad's company when I was 16. I had the HOTS for him. I used to prance in after getting out of school (private Catholic school) wearing my plaid skirt and knee socks. Of course he was like 23 at the time and there was no chance (in either of our minds) but I sure did have the hots for him. Stud muffin that he was/is!!


11: I prefer bathing over showering, and it has to be super hot. No lukewarm bathwater for me.


12: I used to teach preschool.



13: I have an English Literature Degree.



14: My eyes are green, although Brad tends to disagree and says they are hazel. Dude, I know the color of my eyes! ;)



15: My favorite place to visit in the entire world is my grandparents' house in Wisconsin. I used to spend Summers up there visiting them in their little town. My sister and I would walk down to the town pub at lunchtime with cousins and eat fried cheese curds. Mmmmm!!! Oh how I miss spending those weeks there.



16: I need to redeem my Gymbucks this weekend.



17: I want another dog. A Great Dane to be specific. Brad and I got Daisy the Summer we got married and she passed away last January. I can't believe it has already been a year. So sad. I had no clue how painful it is to lose a pet. I will never again underestimate someone's grief on that matter ever again.



18: I ate pan fried steaks tonight at my mom's house. We also had baked potatoes and green beans with a coffee cake for dessert. Yummy!


19: I confirmed with my sister, my mom and a friend today that we are going to participate in the 60-miles Susan G. Koman for the Cure Walk this August. I better start walking! I can't wait to do it though. My paternal grandmother, Helen passed away from breast cancer when I was 12 and my maternal grandmother lost her mom as a teen to breast cancer. It scares me to death.

20: Just found out I can access Pandora Internet Radio through our PlayStation3. How fun!

21: Is there anything more precious than a daddy carrying his sleeping children to bed? Didn't think so.

22: My favorite ice cream is chocolate with peanut butter chunks. Not a chocolate peanut butter swirl, but with real hunks of pb. Mmmmmmm.

23: I need new jeans. But I will wait until after I see what my butt looks like from walking first. Maybe they will be my reward.

24: I wonder how many people are going to read this...and get to the end?

25: Who are you? Leave me a comment! :)
