So, I was nerd-ish-ly excited to see that Cynthia had tagged me for this fun entry.  Basically, it's like a blog post that I don't have to think {too much} about...and I could use one of those right about now.  I have been a slacker--I know.  You see, I have things I want to write about but never seem to have the time, the pictures, and the energy all at the same time.  I do have a few blogs that I will be posting in the next couple days though--get excited!! 

Until then...

1. What's your occupation right now?  I have fulfilled my childhood dream of becoming a full-time stay at home mom, and I am very thankful.  Honestly, I can't imagine it any other way, even though it can be very challenging at times.  I will never tire of waking up to my sweet baby boy...dishes, on the other hand, I could do without.   

2. What are you listening to right now? It is actually fairly quiet in my house at the moment.  We just tucked the wee one into bed, and my hubby is taking a shower while I relax.

3. What was the last thing you ate?
Chicken salad for was really good...but let's be honest, I am far more excited about the ice cream I am going to eat in a few minutes!!
4. How old are you today? 28 for a few more months.

5. What is your favorite sport to watch on tv?  Soccer.  It used to be football, but it's just not as fun when you live in a part of the country that doesn't air any of the teams you grew up loving.

6. Favorite drink? I think I would have to say red wine, though between pregnancies and nursing I don't have any/much, respectively.  
7. Favorite new song?  I am going to answer on Augustine's behalf on this one and say Adele's Rolling in the Deep.  That song inspires something in my child that no other song does.  When he hears it come on, his whole being perks up and the arms start waving wildly--it's super cute!

8. What is the last movie you watched?  Emma.  We just finished reading it in my book club, so I wanted to watch the movie.  It was one of the only movies my best friend in junior high was allowed to watch, so we "watched" it a lot, but I had never had any idea what was going on.  I think I still would have been confused had I not read the book...   

9. Favorite day of the year? Christmas.  I love the family time and the festivities and the celebration of Jesus' birth.
 10. What was your favorite toy as a child? Baby dolls.  When I was about six, my Mom even took the stuffing out of one of my dolls and replaced it with rocks so the baby would be heavy like a real baby. 
 11. What is your favorite season? Fall.  I used to think it was boring when people said their favorite seasons were fall or spring, but as I have gotten older, I have found less favor in extremes {summer and winter} and have discovered how wonderful fall really is! 
 12. Cherries or blueberries? Blueberries.

13. When was the last time you cried? I am not going to count all the times I hear sentimental songs and scoop Augustine into my arms to dance with him and think of how thankful I am for him since that happens on a bi-weekly, it was on Sunday after I received the Eucharist at Mass.
 14. What is on the floor of your closet?  A few shirts I am deciding whether or not to keep.  A trash can.  Our laundry basket.

15. Who is the friend you have had the longest?  Aside from my sisters, Audra.     
 16. What did you do last night?  Put Augustine to bed, spent a few minutes on the computer, read, and then stayed up for a few hours talking with Luke in bed.       

17. What are you most afraid of?  I am much less afraid of things now than I used to be {I used to be afraid of everything}.  I still worry about things like illness, vaccines, the health of my unborn baby, death, eternity...but this is getting too deep for me right now.  How about venomous snakes??    
 18. How many states have you lived in? Colorado, Wyoming, Minnesota, New Mexico, South Carolina, Virginia--SIX.

19. What is your favorite kind of flower? Roses.

And, I will tag...
