13 Things

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

13 random, just-popped-into-my-head as I am typing kind of things....
wanna join in? leave your 13 random things in the comments...or even just one or two.

1. i kind of really like the brad paisley song mud on the tires...and i am not even a BP fan, 
or a modern country music fan, for that matter. can we still be friends? please?

2. i love to see the sun rise, just love it.

3. i really wanna go to craft weekendi am on the waiting list.....

4. one day i will have a margarita machine in my house.

5. i love freshly bathed kids in their pajamas.

6. next month is my 12th anniversary...how in the hell did that happen?

7. i love cereal and never get tired of frosted mini-wheats. yum.

8. i have another library fine, this time it might be worse than before. i know, i know...

9. i am terrible with directions and love the compass on my iphone, i think it just
might have kinda changed my life. it's the little things, friends.

10. flowers make me happy--daisies, peonies, sunflowers, zinnias....i will take them all

11. i know it's wrong but i kinda love the show mob wives. trashy? 
 it sure is. i am not proud, just being honest.

12. i hate buying bras--who wants to spend a bunch of money on a bra? 
well, not me and they never fit perfectly which makes me like them even less.

13. we are planning a star wars backyard  party for the summer. i think i might even
  be more excited about it than the kids.

favorite bracelet.
"stronger than she thought"
oh yeah, i do love that.
from here. you should buy yourself one for mother's day.


happy wednesday.
11 more days until Summer vacation.

    My hubby likes to think of library fines as a donation.

    Mob Wives is so wrong yet so dang fun.

  6. I'm dying to go to the Craft Weekend too! I check my email often, hoping and praying for my invite SOON! But I worry that something will come up or I will feel guilty spending the $475 on myself and end up not going :(
    I hate bras. I wear them, but hate the money.

  7. I can't believe your library fine is bigger than before!! You are going to lose your library privileges if you aren't careful!

    I love daisies! Yesterday when I went to visit my dad (He has Alzheimer's and is in memory support) They had several big bushes of them growing in front of the building. I tried to get a shot of them for Instagram, but the sprinklers were on, I was getting wet, and it didn't work so well.

  8. Love your random list of things! I will try to leave 13 also!

    1. I love the group the Cimarelli sisters on You Tube!
