{Bits - me edition}

1.I like to take pictures of my kids...a lot. Even when they are over being in a seahorse costume (that they chose to be in) and want to get out, they must wait while I document it on camera. That way I get gems like this picture.

2.I am afraid to go on a cruise. I was thiiis close to consenting to our best friends requests/begging to go on a Disney cruise with them. Then I remembered the whole being on a ship in the middle of the ocean and started hyperventilating with thoughts of my kids falling overboard and me jumping after them and being sucked down under the boat.

I expressed my concerns and they came back with semi-comforting answers.

I said I would think about it.

The next day the cruise ship that wrecked in Europe was all over the news.

There's my answer.

3.I have a tiny freckle in my eye that is slowly getting darker as I age. My mother has a freckle in her eye as well.

4.I love watching movies. All sorts of movies. Curling up on the couch and watching movie after movie for a day is on my list of things to do at least once or twice a year.

5.I really do believe that 30's are the new 20's. The only difference is in your 30's you have a better idea of who you are and don't worry so much about what others think.

6.I like cookie dough better than most cookies once they are baked.

7.I have library cards to four different libraries. I have tried to bridle my desire to get a Nook for fear that I would easily drop $80 a month on books to read. My love of reading runs deep.

8.I bite my nails. Not down to nothing and not all the time but I do bite them and then curse myself for biting them off instead of cutting them.

9.I'm not above doing "rock, paper, scissors" to see who has to change a poopy diaper.

10.I have five piercings in my ears, two of which I did myself. I only wear one earring per ear now and have for years but all 5 piercings are still there.

11.I am a damn good cook, even if I don't describe baby lettuce as "micro-greens" or occasionally use a can of cream of chicken soup in a recipe.

12.After about 11:30 at night I start to get a bit hyper and crazy. Ask anyone who's spent time with me at that time of night and they'll tell you I am CRAZY! I think I'd be a crazy, happy drunk, which, if I did drink I'd rather be than a moody, mean one.

13.Coloring is like therapy for me. If you flip through my kids coloring books you will find many a page colored by yours truly.

Check your local libraries. My library is set up so that I can borrow e-books. I have a Kindle Fire and am able to loan and borrow books to and from other users.You should look into the Nook features and see if you can do the same. I would not be surprised.

Love this post! Love your blog! Ok... so I had to laugh because today in church I looked over and John was coloring Ellie's barbie coloring book and I was so jealous. I love coloring too. I prefer coloring pencils to crayons, but I could sit and color for hrs. It is my kid activity of choice... next to legos.
