Tag! You're it!

I'm actually pretty excited about this! I have officially been tagged by someone that I do not know in real life, but I'm so glad to know her via blogs and email. CJ at "Simply Simonsons" tagged me for this challenge. Here goes:

4 shows I like to watch:
  • The Bachelor(ette)...obviously
  • 24
  • Lost
  • Grey's Anatomy/Private Practice (they can count as one right?)

4 things I am passionate about:

  • Lately...doughnuts. Totally cancels my workout, but sometimes I just don't care.
  • Collecting Box Tops for Education. Yes, I know they're only 10 cents a piece, but so far I have single handedly raised like $100 for my school doing it. You don't want 'em, send 'em my's free money y'all!
  • Voting/Taking surveys. I vote in every election I know about, and research the facts so I'm informed, and I actively participate in a survey panel for "Knowledge Networks". I love feeling like my opinion matters.
  • Linen Closets. Not even my husband is allowed to put things away in there. IT'S MY TURF!

4 phrases I say a lot:

  • "No Ma'am!" (Usually to Boo)
  • "It's true." (I blame my Brother in Law)
  • "Friggin A" (No, this is not a substitution for the real words. I actually do say this...)
  • "Smooth move, Exlax"

4 things I have learned:

  • Money can make you comfortable, but it can't make you happy.
  • Some recipes are only meant to be photographed.
  • If you want to know who your true friends are...have a crisis.
  • Don't judge parents based on a snapshot into their day. Chances are, you are not seeing the whole picture.

4 places I would like to go:

  • Australia
  • An amusement park (sans children)
  • A spa for the weekend
  • A Disney Cruise (Fun for the whole family!)

4 things I did yesterday:

  • Talked with my sister in law on the phone.
  • Signed up for FreeCycle (time to purge some of this STUFF!)
  • 2 loads of laudry (still trying to get caught up from my week long hiatus aka head cold)
  • Watched the Bachelor

4 things I'm looking forward to:

  • Getting our debt paid off.
  • Our 10 year anniversary trip (even if it will come 8+ months late.)
  • My little brother moving closer to us.
  • Getting my house organized.

4 things I love about winter:

  • Snuggling under the covers to watch a movie with Roon.
  • Baking without overheating the house.
  • Folding warm clothes straight out of the dryer (Sounds like a chore, but it's one of my favorite things in the wintertime.)
  • Making and eating soup.

4 things on my wish list:

  • A new refrigerator. (there's nothing wrong with our current one, but it was only meant to be "temporary". Going on 4 years now...time to let it go.)
  • More time in the day.
  • An organizational system for my closet.
  • A large caffeinated beverage (this is always on my wish list by way of Dr. Pepper)

4 People I tag:

Well, since I only have two followers, and only about 4 people read my blog...consider yourselves tagged. Unless you don't want to. I would love to hear your answers though!

I love that you research when you vote. I do too! So many people don't. The other day my friend told me she "gets to keep her job" since these measures past in our state. I'm like, "There's the perfect example of someone who doesn't know what they're voting on. Scare tactics, people!!!" Actually, it really irks me so I should shut it now.

I'm not much of a voter (yes my head is hung in shame). But I do like surveys. Let me know if you need some good survey sites to sign up at. I belong to 5 and there are 2 I REALLY like.

Linen closets. thats funny.
