I haven't been tagged in awhile. And, considering the lack of posts I've had lately, I figured I better do something before the 3 of you who read my blog, quit checking it altogether.

Tales of AJU5 tagged me to share 10 scraps of information about myself.

1. I love children's books. Not just love them, but am oh so passionate about them. So much so that I have considered going back to school to get a library science degree so I can be an elementary school librarian. I could spend hours in the bookstore wandering around in the children's section. I CANNOT wait until Chloe is old enough to want to do this with me. I hope hope hope she shares me love of books.

2. I can watch my favorite tv shows and movies over and over and over again. This tends to drive my husband crazy.

3. I could eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Every day.

4. I wish I could run. I would love to be able to go for long, leisurely jogs. I am just not a runner. I might be able to run a mile... might.

5. I have a very hard time with body image. I want to be able to be happy with the way I look and love myself for the woman God created me to be. Something is holding me back. It's hard.

6. I say "crap" way too much. If I don't watch it, Chloe's first words will be "mama" "dada" and "crap".

7. Fall is my favorite time of year. I love to see the leaves turning colors, to wear jeans and sweaters, to sit outside near a fire and drink hot cocoa. But, right now, I will happily settle for spring. Just no more winter!

8. My mom is my hero. Especially now that I am a mom. She was a single mom and did it all by herself and I can't imagine how. I struggle being a stay at home mom, with a husband and only one daughter. I think about the hardships she must have endured and it makes me love her even more.

9. I have amazing friends. Enough said.

10. I am left handed. So is my husband. I hope Chloe grows up to be a leftie too.

I'm not going to tag anyone, but if you do list 10 things about yourself on your blog, leave me a comment and let me know so I can check it out!

Fun stuff!

I can watch Friends and Dirty Dancing over and over. Love it. Never get tired of it.

I agree on 4 and 5. Totally.

Number 8, my mom was a single parent, too. I don't know how she raised the three of us alone. I get so excited when Josh comes home at 5 and I have someone I can share my day with or pawn the kids off on so I can take a breather. My mom never had a breather! Our moms rock!

I'm a lefty also but I don't think either of my girls will be. I know Jaylee isn't and Alison always picks up her food with her right hand, so I don't think she'll be a lefty either. Totally bums me out!

We think our 3 y.o. is a leftie. I also wish I could run - I think it's the best way to lose weight and keep it off. Yes, kids will pick up those words and then use them in the most inappropriate times like at the library or in front of the in-laws. LOL
