I thought I lost my egg (Reese's cup.)

I tried to write about our trip to Colorado but the pictures were not loading correctly. So that is in the "drafts" position currently. However, I did read on a friends blog about 10 random facts about her. Due to my desire to be creative I thought I should join and pass along.

#1 I love Reese's peanut butter cups but mainly when they are in egg shape. Like right now for Easter. Katie came over for lunch and I hyped up this wonderful dessert. I am sure she thought it was going to be homemade something.... nope it was a Reese's peanut butter cup egg. Just pure goodness. I know she was a little disappointed but they are just so darn good.

#2 I sit on my leg/foot a lot at work. I have a tough time sitting normal. I don't think it has anything to do with being pregnant because I did this before. But the negative is that my foot falls asleep a lot. Which is quite embarrassing when one of my kiddos ask me to make a copy for them and I can't walk down the hall.

#3 I don't listen to a lot of music. I don't initiate relationships with artist. I merely wait till Russ has a good CD and then go from there. Once I have a new good CD then I literally listen to it for months at a time. Over and over and over. No one knows because usually I am the only one in the car. I just like knowing the songs I am listening too I guess.

#4 I don't like to do laundry. I know... most people don't like to do laundry but I am really good at putting off doing it. This has just occured in the last year and a half. I think it is because our washer and dryer are in the basement and it is often cold down there.

#5 My favorite blanket is Russ'. I admit it. Russ will be happy to know. Russ brought into our marriage very few material possessions. This one is his comforter from like second grade. It is brown, cotton, from JCPenny's and was sewed together with fishing wire or that clear plastic string. I love cuddling up with it when I want to take a nap. It is just such a happy place.

#6 I can't zip any of my jackets. The belly is just now out to far. So I pull the "open jacket look" a lot.

#7 I have smelly feet. That is right. True confessions. My feet sweat a lot therefore it produces an odor in my shoes. It kills my ability to wear cute little flats.

#8 I hoard books. I love the idea of books a lot more than actually sitting and reading them. If you looked at my nightstand right now.... there are like 8 books on there. I read as much as possible but not enough to have 8 books on my nightstand. I think I just love the idea.

#9 I don't wear slips. I just don't understand the point. I know it is to make sure people don't see through your clothing but is there any other reason? I don't own light colored skirts so it shouldn't be a problem. I saw the movie "because I said so." Mandy Moore has trouble with one of her slips and a dress. It made me think... do other young women wear slips?

#10 I have a new theory that is being tested. Often times people who are famous have the same letter for their first and last name. For example, Mandy Moore... please begin to think of others. I do this often it is quite fun. So my question to Russ was do we name our child a name with a M even though it sounds off.

I now joyfully tag Morgan, Rebecca and Katie. I don't know how to link to you guys. I will try and learn soon.

I did not even realize what you were talking about when you wrote about a slip if that answers your question! And add Jack Johnson to your list of famous ones...
Have you decided on a name yet??

I don't wear slips either...have a few, because my mom says know how that goes.

You could give her an M name, but then when she marries and does not have the M last name anymore where will that leave her. hee hee

I love reading your blog. It's like having a great conversation with you. Even though I don't fit in the "young woman" category, I don't like slips either. They are really annoying. I didn't know you were such an admirer of the double letter name. I wasn't born with it but it makes for good initials. Your loving, Mother-in-law

i think it's funny that several of us came to leave a comment about not wearing slips either! never have...excpet for when something has a lot of static. my mother would just die, esp. my grandmothers! so good to have breakfast and be so real, and laugh! love that distance is no issue for us!
and i really liked the random facts...maybe you should do that once a month for our entertainment! :)

I would have to say that my least favorite household chore would have to be laundry. It is such a multi-step process-washing, drying, folding and putting it away. It is also pretty much impossible to not have any dirty laundry, so your job is never done! I will definitely think of you the next time I do laundry!

I saw the reese's eggs today and could think of nothing but you and your cute preggo bump. :-)

#2 - funny, because as I sit here, I am sitting on my foot, and my foot is asleep. I've always done that too and I will probably have a bad right knee when I'm old!
