Favorite Snacks

To Do List

2. Fold lots of laundry
3. re-schedule Judah's tooth extraction
4. Send family recipes to my cousin for a cookbook she's putting together for another cousin
5. file my large pile of EOB's and medical receipts
6. Close my sister's Pampered Chef catalog show and submit by July 31st
7. Email a friend back

Bad Habits
eating too much sugar
disrespecting my husband publicly (more like a grievous sin).

5 Random Things People May Not Know
1. I spent 6 weeks in China while in college.
2. I can become morbidly pre-occupied with my husband dying on me at an early age.
3. I was a very picky eater as a child and through college. I now love to try new foods and have come to LOVE asparagus among other once sworn off foods!!
4. I floss my teeth almost every night.
5. I don't want to live an especially long life.

CD I would want if stranded on an island
Come Weary Saints

What I’d Do if I Were a Billionaire
...after paying off my student loan debt and mortgage completely...
1. buy my in-laws a new home in a better neighborhood.
2. provide the rest of the support my brother, Garrett and SIL, Kristen need for their stint to the Ukraine.
3. support many good friends who work full time in missions or church planting
4. host lavish parties to express my affection and appreciation to all my friends and people who serve me and my family so sacrificially.
5. Take more get aways alone with my hubby.
6. Hire a full time maid and "grounds keeper".
7. Adopt babies from China.

You forgot Joppatowne!!!!! OUr newlywed days were there. (Remember your Sanford and son neighbors?!)

Also, why did you have to reschedule the tooth extraction?

OMIGOSH...is it bad that I TOTALLY understand the "husband's early death thing." For heaven sakes...I just got married, why am I worried about this???? Seriously, ask Bill. I'll find myself driving home all teared up b/c of the thought of him dying...

I loved reading your and laurie's posts!

And I'm glad to know I'm not the only morbid one out there too. I have to catch myself and say "don't go there mind" often. And dairy queen? That's just awesome- that would've been a dream job for me at one point- free ice cream anytime!
