A Few Things About Me

I love flowers. I like knowing the names of the flowers that I like. I especially love watching my garden come back to life every spring after a long winter. I love that I picked out everything that was planted in front of my house. I love how every year it looks better and better.

These are the peonies that I saved from the big storm... that I now get to enjoy in my house.

I love to color. It is so relaxing. I took Alyssa and Will to the exploratorium yesterday, where we met a friend and my sis and their kids. I had a little too much fun tracing the animal stencils and made these with my friend's kid...

I am on the computer most of the day/night. I love uploading my pics, checking my email, checking out the stores that send me their emails, reading blogs, talking to friends on facebook... (speaking of facebook, do NOT try that jewel game... it is totally addicting and I waste at least 2 hours a day on it. It looked stupid... thought I'd check it out and now I'm hooked. I suck at it but I'm trying to outplay my friends. I even have my kids hooked on it hoping they'll get good at it and beat my friends' scores.)

I love my car.

I love Bloomingdale's.

I love Trish McEvoy lip gloss (not that color) and perfume (sexy 9).

I like to jog on the treadmill, but sometimes go through lazy weeks and don't do it at all. I love that my ipod connects to my treadmill so I can listen to music without using the earbuds.

I love music... and I love that my kids and husband love music.

I love watching my kids dance... this is the first year they have not taken lessons but will start again in the fall.... Emily- tap/ballet. Jessica- jazz/hip hop.

I love watching my kids play sports.... especially basketball.

I love that Alyssa likes to clean things. The other night I was sweeping the kitchen floor before dinner cuz my kids spilled some popcorn. Alyssa came in the kitchen and said "uccchhh" so I told her, "It's dirty. Mommy is going to clean it up." And do you know what she did? She ran out of the kitchen and came back a few seconds later with a wipe, sat on the floor, and started washing the floor with the wipe. I said to Jon... "you know I think I'm doing s/th right with this one" and then I ate my words as she attemted to eat a piece of popcorn from the dirty pile I was about to sweep up. But still I mean 18 months... come on.... be impressed with her.

I hate cooking dinner, and even worse... deciding what to cook for dinner. And even worse than that... cleaning up after dinner.

I hate being cold.

I hate when people say FYI.

I hate accents.

I love diet arizona green tea and drink it all day long.

I love Starbucks coffee. My favorite is their Nonfat Pumpkin Spice Latte... yum! But really a plain old nonfat latte works too.

I'm starting to like dunkin donuts coffee too, but only iced and cuz it's cheaper.

I love to get pedicures but not manicures.

I love to get my hair blown.

I stay up very late at night... not sure why... just like to.

That's all I can think of right now....


  1. It looks like there is something suspended on top of Shosh's sons i seeing things?
    What the hell is a Sexy 9? - sounds like a cocktail I would like! You know me, it all comes down to that anyway!
    I'm the opposite when it comes to mani/pedi...hate the pedis, they tickle me waaaay too much. But I think the last time I got either one was bout 3 years ago, who the hell has time!? I need an effin vacation!!
    K, Im done ranting!!
    - Miss S.
