About Me

In no particular order, 5 things you may not know about me:

1 - My house looks like this (and worse) far too often. This was after I had started cleaning up.

2 - I do not like chocolate. Chocolate ice cream, blech. I do like chocolate when there is a cookie involved. Enter Choco Leibniz. I ate several almost every day of my pregnancy ...and still do.

3 - There are usually several piles of laundry around. It seems like the third baby has pushed me over the edge of the never to catch up again laundry mountain. I have a cute little helper though.

4 - We do not watch tv. We own a tv for occasional Dora dvds and Ross' video games, but we don't have it connected for regular tv watching.

5 - We have a chocolate lab named Leia. Here Julia is feeding her a stick. Yes, she ate it and yes, Julia's hat is on backwards. No, it wasn't even that cold, she just wanted to wear it.

There you have it. 5 fun facts about me. ;) Your turn...


  1. Funny, I agree with the 3rd baby and the laundry. I had a pretty great system before my last one. Now, it is a constant catch up. Even 3 years later. :)

  2. you have all my respect for posting a picture of your house. mine looks like that too! most every day. most every room. :0) good thing the mess waits for us huh?

  3. So glad to hear we aren't the only ones with a crazy house sometimes :)


  4. That remindsme that I have wash in the washer that needs to go in the dryer. I had fun reading about you.

  5. Thanks for sharing stuff about you. I'll share too:
    1. I just got back from a nine day vacation (and I use the term vacation lightly) to Disney. I am tired. Very tired.
    2. I have six cats. Did I mention I am allergic to cats?
    3. My husband and I were married 5 years before we decided to have our daughter.
    4. My only sister and I are 9 and a half years apart in age!
    5. I love to read and do so every day.

  6. Christy, I can't tell you how many times I've been about to post a picture of my house on an average day. Just to get it out there, like a confession. You crack me up.

  7. 1. I'm a fan of Sour Patch Kids and Gummy Worms.

    2. I'm a facebook addict. Need to cut back :)

    3. I have a love/hate relationship with the water. I love swimming and going to the beach, hearing the waves and watching sunsets. But, I'm claustraphobic and I don't like not being able to see over distances underwater.

    4. I'm a terrible speller.

    5. I enjoy being outside and laying in the grass and looking up at the sky :)

  8. Kudos to you for sharing the picture of your house. When mine looks like that I consider it not half bad. I have to agree about the 3rd baby's laundry, too. I'm dreading the laundry when I have a 4th. I was almost caught up recently, but quickly fell behind again.
