Brand New Meme!

*Links are fixed!

Sweet Michelle from Life With Three tagged me for a brand new meme, and she was tagged by Darcie from Such the Spot. As Michelle warns, so will I. This sucker is long. :)

Favorite person (outside family)? Oh come on. One person? I've got a top six list for today (in a meandering order) Lisa, Ginger, Mitzi, Lia, Laura, Karen

Favorite food? This is totally not fair. I loooove food. I consume fully 1/3 to 1/2 my daily calories in Green Smoothie, so we'll go with that.

Quirks about you? I walk on my tiptoes most of the time. No idea why. I hate birds and fish. Ick ick ick. I like mustard on sweet corn.

How would the person who loves you most describe you in ten words or less? My husband, and he says, "wicked smart, really funny, beautiful" (liar), "great cook, wonderful wife/mom"

Any regrets in life? Yep, one big one. And hopefully I'll meet that baby in heaven one day.

Favorite Charity/ Cause? Heifer International

Favorite Blog recently? Nesting Place

Something you can’t get enough of? Research. I'll do it until my eyeballs are about to fall out, then do it some more (after I find them, of course).

Worst job you’ve ever had? The one day I did telemarketing. One. Day. Because people who know me know that I don't do the phone.

What job would you pay NOT to have? Fast food tester.

If you could be a fly on the wall, where would you be? At the home office of my job, just so I could know what in the world is going on with that sucker.

Favorite Bible verse right now? “As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.”- Ecclesiastes 11:5

Guilty Pleasure? America's Next Top Model

Got any confessions? Sometimes I crave junk food. Like really crave it.

If you HAD to spend $1,000 on YOURSELF, how would you spend it? Oh my. I love clothes to no end, but I'd probably buy a handbag. I always carry my LVs, but I might go Gucci this time.

Favorite thing about your house? That my family is in it. :)

Least favorite thing about your house? The constant mess and lack of storage space.

One thing you are bad at? Cleaning

One thing you’re good at? Baking

If you could change something about your circumstances, what? I'd make us debt free a little early (one more year, then it's just the house, God willing)

Who would you like to meet someday? my father

What makes you feel sexy? really high heels

Who is your real life hero? Ginger

What is the hardest part of your job? My paid job? The politics and uncertainty. My real job? Making sure I give enough love and discipline to the little creatures I've been given.

When are you most relaxed? After a nice leg massage before I go to sleep.

What stresses you out? Uncertainty. So that would be like everything. :)

What can you not live without? My kids. I think all kids under the age of 8 smell like ketchup and are grubby little things, but they're so stinking fantastic.

Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists? In some respects, I agree; this one certainly is written by a gal who struggles with her pride every day. But I don't think the desire to be known is narcissistic, it's more about how God made us. He made us to long to be known, then fulfills it in that He knows that every hair on our heads has been counted.

Why do you blog? To work out who I am in this family, to chronicle this time in our lives when we're still a little family, to be honest about my struggles with weight, faith, mothering, everything.

Who are you tagging?

I am so impressed -- you turned that around really fast! :) I enjoyed learning more about you! I'm a research fiend, as well. And I've been known to watch America's Next Top Model rerun marathons. They suck me in every time.

But really, can I tell you how much I needed to hear the Bible verse you shared? It was like you were standing in the kitchen overhearing my frustration tonight (how did you know?!?). Thank you. It was exactly what I needed to hear.
