Did you have fun on your trip? Good, see you next fall!

This was a really fun idea from the Kato's blog. I've been on a memory lane trip lately and thought it would be fun to remember some of the best times (or worst) times I've had with all of you. So, here's how the game works:

1.As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

Tag of 3's

So I was tagged twice for this same tag! Both my sister Abby and my sister-in-law, Caetie, thought I should fill this out so I guess it's a sign. Really, I think they did it because they know I never post blogs, I let Bryce do all that. I just read and enjoy. Anyway, I hope you don't mind, Caetie that I cut your tag down to just 3's, I'll have to think about 8's some more. So here goes:

3 Joys

1. Watching Bryce wrestle with the kids
2. Hearing "family sounds" (for example, imagination phone conversations, made up songs, laughter and squeals--I love it!)
3. Music, especially classical, specifically piano. It always lightens my soul and makes everything better!

3 Fears

1. I agree with Abby, it's gotta be those stupid spiders! They make me so nervous!
2. Kidnappers/robbers/rapists-especially when it comes to my kids. I spend hours thinking of what I would do should something happen.
3. This might make you laugh, but I still am afraid of the Cowardly Lion part of the Wizard of Oz. I just hate when he jumps out of the woods and acts all mean. His face haunts all of my bad dreams.

3 Obsessions/Collections

1. Good girly smells. I love them and have been know to spend a lot of money on a product simply because it smells good. Hopefully I'm not the only dumb woman that falls for stuff like that. However, I think it's worth it.
2. Buffy/Angel . . . I guess vampires in general. Call me and adventerous romantic, I guess. I love the sex appeal of Dracula and the thrill of the hunt! Anybody that hasn't watched them, don't you worry, I have them all! Of course Twilight also falls into this category since it is much the same.
3. Babies. Caring for and cuddling babies is one of my favorite pasttimes and I frequently steal Baby Lea (that's my niece) from her Mommy. She gives me my "baby fix". I'm pretty obsessed with observing and communicating with those little infants.

3 surprising facts

1. I can't whistle worth beans
2. I actually like to clean the bathroom (even more than the dishes, that's right I pick the toilet)
3. I can be a little racist (maybe I shouldn't admit that online since Jackson with be president one day and it will come back to haunt him . . . but I do tend to generalize groups of people and jump to conclusions sometimes. That's not to say I don't know and love a good amount of differently raced people than myself though.)

That's it! It's getting late and I could have been reading, scrapbooking, or sleeping this entire time . . . I'll have to weigh that a little better next time because sleep sure sounds good! Anyway, I tag Holly, because I know it'll be entertaining to read, Joelle, because I've been thinking about you lately, and my new found friend Shauna so that I can get to know you better.
