Gettin Caught Up!
First things first, I want to thank AR, Boo and Hooties Momma, EB (Life's a Peach), and Alex over at Running Just As Fast As I Can for this sweet award! Right back at you! You girls make my day too!
Now, I have to give it to some other bloggers so here goes....
Rachel over at Always Wanted Four because she makes me laugh and because I think we would be friends in real live and because she is kicking my heiney and making me train for a half-Marathon!
A.D. over at The Cats PJs because she is such a sweet cheerleader (she always encouraging everyone) and because she always knows about the best snacks!
N.M.B over at Puttin on the Grits because she is a Grits (like me), and because she makes me laugh and because I am swooning over her new romance with a man she calls "Country".
Maddie over at Madras Matters because she always knows the best deals, she stuck up for a friend this week (that took guts) and because by golly, madras does matter!
Sasha over at Barely Keeping it All Together because I wouldn't be running right now if it wasn't for her!
So, Here's the MeMe I was tagged with. I was tagged by 2 or 3 people, and since I am about a week late on this I'm not tagging anyone cause everyone else has already been tagged! So here goes, enjoy!
What were you doing 10 years ago?
Hubs and I were newly weds and living in a very tiny apartment (but we didn't care!). I was working at a job that I hated and had just decided to look for a new one. It was June and it seems like all of our friends were getting married so every weekend I was either at a bridal shower or a wedding!
5 things on my to-do list today...
-Do this Meme (Hey, I've got priorities!)
-Tackle Mt. Washmore
-Return DVD's to video store
-Play with my kids
Name some of your favorite snacks...
Dark Chocolate (as Rachel says, I'm not wasting calories on milk chocolate)
Klondike Slim-A-Bear 100 calorie ice cream bars
Name some places you've lived...
Tennessee, Alabama, Illinois
Name 5 things you would do if you became a Billionaire...
-Not tell anyone cause then everyone would be hitting us up for money
-Anonymously give a large sum to our church and our former church
-Build a bigger house (not huge, just a little bigger)
-Fund my children's college funds and start wedding funds for my girls
-Let Hubs quit work (but I know he wouldn't, he loves his job!)
And if you were wondering.... I did not go running with the running club on Saturday or today. I had a ton to do Saturday morning because we were going over to FIL's house to have lunch for Father's day. My SIL was planning a Mexican meal so will all chipped in with dishes. I was in charge of appetizers and I had 3 to make (on top of getting 3 kids and my self ready). I didn't go today because Michelle (the one who invited me) wasn't going to be there and I want to make sure she is there so that I know at least one person there.
On a gross note.. I lost a toenail! All of my running friends warned me that I might but I totally didn't believe them! The second toe on my right foot started hurting a few weeks ago and then started turning colors eventually settling on a beautiful shade of purple. The nail finally gave up Saturday night. Oh well, one less to paint!
Potty Training? Went fabulous! I was so not looking forward to it. Yes, it meant no more buying expensive diapers but it is a hassle and everyone told me boys were so much harder than girls. Well, little man proved everyone wrong and was potty trained in 3 days. I tell you, he's a prodigy!
New Kids On the Block? I'm going to see them in concert in Atlanta on October 29th! My friend Renee was a huge fan of theirs back in the day (I was a fan but not near as big as she). She went crazy when she found out they were going to be on tour this year and would be pretty near us in Atlanta. She told me about it a few months ago and asked me if I would go if she could get us tickets. I said sure, not thinking anything else about it. Well, she called me last week, she has scored us tickets! I couldn't quit laughing when she told me! She is so sweet to get me one too! This will be our birthday celebration (both our birthdays are in September)! I can't wait (I also can't believe I'm going!)
