Summer To Do List

Because  all I can think about is being D.O.N.E. with this school year (7 days!!), I've decided that it's also the perfect time for starting a Summer-To-Do list...of course, I can and will add to this as more ideas pop into my head!!

1) Finish the 31 Things class I signed up for on September 9, 2012. Seriously!!

2) Sleep in.

3) Go to the beach-2x!

4) Stay up to date on Project Life.

5) Read 10 books.

6) Make popsicles.

7) Overnight trip to Nashville w/friend & kiddos!

8) The Zoo!

9) Quick but fun-packed trip to WDW with my aunt!

10) Run 50 miles.

11) Relax & have days where we do absolutely NOTHING!

12) Lots of afternoons at the neighborhood pool.

13) Go to an IMAX movie.

14) Play Legos.

15) Go to local splash pad.

16) Go to a baseball game.

17) Have a picnic @ the park.

I Want Wednesday...

I want: Microsoft Office for MAC...I've been using Pages for my word processing since getting a Mac back in November and I'm done. It's so unbelievably confusing and cumbersome. Word is SO much easier. And since I'm doing a lot more word processing now doing O's invoices for his lawn services, it is time!

I want: my summer scrapbooking camp to FILL UP!! There is space for 60 girls and I'm so super excited about if only we'd get some registration forms rolling in. 

I want: the school year to be over. No surprise there I'm sure. My last work day is May 29th and while that is just around the corner, every day feels like an eternity right now.

I want: to go to WDW this summer...even if it's only 3-4 days. Also, my aunt REALLY wants to go on a vacation to WDW...I really need that scrapbooking camp to fill so we can do Disney. Oh & if we get to go, I am totally NOT telling Ethan until the morning we leave...and I'm going to video the cool would that be?!?

I want: more reading time...same as my last "I want" post last month or so...just not much reading time these days and now I'm 6 books behind on my Goodreads. com reading goal...the most I've ever been behind before. *sigh* Gotta get caught up this summer.

That's all I can come up with for now...what are you wanting?

5 years later

So I've been working on my blog...changing things, editing etc...and came across this 10-question survey I completed on 04.04.08....and so I thought how fun it would be to answer now...5 years later!!! Today's answers are BOLD.

1. What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
Mint Chocolate Chip - hands down. If it's made by Stroh's - even better...but I think that's only found in Michigan. Boohoo!
Birthday Cake!!

2. What shampoo do you use?

3. How do you like your eggs?
Scrambled. Deviled is good too!
Scrambled still, but I've also become quite fond of the over-easy way too!

4. What's the first thing you do when you get online?
Check my email!

Still checking my email!

5. What is your favorite tv show?
Like 98% of the country right now - Grey's Anatomy. But I am also enjoying "Deliver Me" on Bravo (it's about 3 OBs/Friends and their practice).

Ha! TV?!? Talk about change...I cannot tell you the last time I sat down to actually watch an entire show...unless renting a movie on iTunes & watching it while scrapbooking counts.

6. Which do you prefer, the sunrise or the sunset?
They are both nice although I rarely see either these days.
Sunset!! I love sleeping in more than ever so I'd really rather not see a sunrise!

7. When is the last time you went to the mall?
Last Saturday - a family trip, O, MIL and big 'ol baby stroller leading the way.

Yesterday - alone, to make one return & one purchase!

8. What was the last food that you ate?

Red Velvet Cupcake (oops!)

9. What is your favorite animal?
Meow - the entire feline family.

Still a fan of cats...though I do hope someday I have a house & lifestyle that is suitable for having a dog.

10. Do you collect anything?
yes...Pluto figures (the rarer the better). scrapbook supplies (I say 'collect' cuz I haven't been using them lately).

No more Pluto figures...actually sold them all just a few months ago...even the ginormous 3-4' tall ones. :(  Kinda sad but it's ok - less stuff to dust. Still collecting scrapbook supplies but using them a lot more than I was 5 years ago. yay!!

So there ya have things change in 5 lightning-fast years!

Project Life - Weeks 14 & 15

Week 14 was such a busy week...our Spring Break was the week AFTER Easter so that meant LOTS of pictures taken during those 7 days - Easter Sunday, Spring Break trip to Atlanta and then I did the Color Me Rad race on the Saturday at the end of Week 14.
That means 3 inserts!!
