Lovelies

A certain fat and fabulous friend of mine graciously bestowed upon me this:


Now, it's my chance to play and pass it along. The rules? Tell you 7 things about myself (what more is there to tell?!) and then grace 9 other lucky lovelies with this award!

1) My food preferences have changed since moving to Texas. I crave Mexican and Barbecue ALL of the time now! Back in Ohio these were cuisines that were in short supply and rarely eaten, but down here... Oh man! Everywhere you look there are little taco stands and smokers on the side of the road serving you up some awesome food! No wonder Texans are so heavy!

2) I've been thinking about cutting my hair and donating it to Locks of Love. But, there are a few things holding me back. 1. I'd have to grow it out a bit longer and I just don't know if I can do it! 2. I don't want to have it cut really short. I hate when my hair is short and I can't put it up in a ponytail... I guess I'm an inbetween kinda gal! *le sigh*

3) Recently I have become OBSESSED with Ben and Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup ice cream. To. Die. For. I've only been able to find it at one grocery store here in Houston, so I don' have it very often. (And I'm also trying not to eat ice cream so that I can lose some more weight...) But, man is it GOOD!

4) I am all ready anxious about Aidan starting school. Yea, yea... he's 6 months old. But that day will come before I know it (and before I'm ready!) and I know it will be very hard for me to let go and let my little boy grow up.

5) I try to choose a "breastfeeding movie of the day", so that I have something to watch while Aidan is eating. Sometimes he'll eat for a loooong time and I get a little antsy. Yesterday's choice? Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

6) Jason and I are long overdue for a vacation. We have not been on a real vacation in over 5 years. Yes people, you read correctly... FIVE YEARS! Depressing, isn't it? We're desperate to get outta dodge and explore some place new. Suggestions?

7) I wish that we had bought a bigger house. I feel so claustrophobic in our current home. It was a great deal, but since houses down here don't have basements and are limited on closet space, it's a crunch for us. I long for two living areas and a usable attic!


Now, onto my lovelies (in no particular order):

Kerbi @ So Are You To Me- Happily married to the love of her life and a great cook to boot
Megan @ Honey, We're Home - Check out her gorgeous new home and sweet baby boy
Katie @ Katie's Journey - A fabulous, future teacher in the making
Adrienne @ All These Things - A fun Mom to a handsome Buggy boy
Carly @ Carly's Photography- Her lens captures the greatest of life's moments
Amanda @ Serenity Now- Her creativity never ceases to amaze me
Keely @ Mannland5 - This gal has some serious style
Laura @ Laura's Everyday Ramblings - A fellow Houstonian tryin' to lose the pounds, like me
Elizabeth @ Confessions From a Working Mom- Brutally honest and trying to have it all

Play along if you wish, ladies!
