things about me..

I've done these before but it's been quite a while and I am bored and it's been a rough day so, here goes...

                                              Lily & Mama on the swings at the city park last year..

* I LOVE Coldstone Creamery's Cake Batter ice cream. Plain. Just the ice cream, no toppings. It's my husband's fave, as well.

*I make cake batter & cookie dough just to eat it, not bake it. (sometimes)

*I am doing a surprise birthday party for my Mama tomorrow and I am really nervous. Here's the menu: chicken spaghetti, olive cheese bread, salad, red velvet cake. Does that sound good to you??

*my shoe size is huge. 10. It was a 9 but then I had children. lol

*I am almost 5'8 so I guess my foot is not that big.

*I love brown. It is one of my absolute favorite colors. And red.

*I am reading 6 different books at one time. A little bit of each one, here and there. I have a problem with focusing. lol

*I LOVE gospel music!!!! My all time favorite group is Selah. Their newest CD is amazing!!

*My favorite author is Sally Clarkson. She's so inspiring and motivating in such a peaceful, wonderful way.

*I love goofy fuzzy socks. :)

*I still use the same brand of cleanser on my face that I used in High School..Neutrogena?? ( I don't know, I would have to go look!) cream. (the white kind in the blue jar)...I love the smell and the tingly feeling. :)

*I love snowmen. I love to decorate with them.

*I love to do laundry but I hate to fold it and put it away.

*I love sweet tea.

*I love too hard, sometimes.

*We homeschool.

*It's bugging me to write so many I's....

*I love the book of John.

*Also, Psalms & Hebrews, are some favorites.

*I heart Cruel Girl Jeans.

*I have a tracfone.

*I am one of the cheapest, tightest people with  money that I know. 

*We are dedicated Dave Ramsey followers.

*I wish I were craftier but I have learned it will come with time. First things, first.

*I got married at 18.

*We were married 7 years before Claire was born. Then proceeded to have 2 more children in the next 3 years.

*We are still pondering that one... lol

* I love Dr. Pepper but it doesn't love my hips.

*I have tried to do the shred with Jillian Michaels but it is an off and on relationship. Currently, not going so well.

*I love fashion and clothes and makeup.

*My favorite book right now is "The ministry of Motherhood." I refer to it almost constantly.

*We belong to a wonderful amazing homeschool group!

*My favorite food is my husband's guacamole & pico de gallo and a nice juicy steak. Dessert would be cheesecake. Yum...

Well, that's enough for now! I am getting bored of myself. Pray for those in Haiti and give if you can, at all!!!

Your list is such a fun way to learn more about you! Your meal for your mom sounds wonderful. My husband loves red velvet cake, & it's my least favorite to make (that's another story). Have fun and enjoy surprising your mom! What a great daughter you are! And btw, I'm with ya on the Dr Pepper and the hips! :-)
Have a blessed weekend!
