So I've often read people's posts who say "I've been tagged." And then asked myself, "How come no one ever tags me (sniff)?" Well, thank you Erin, for thinking of little old me. Note: this is not an invitation for everyone and their dog to now tag me.

Here goes.

Three Joys:
1. Annie's Fluffy hair
2. Getting hugs from my kids and hubby.
3. Going out to dinner, preferably without the kids.

Three Fears:
1. My girls waking up too early from their nap/sleep.
2. Natalie hitting her face...again. Please let my child not scar her beautiful face because she happens to fall on hard things, A LOT.
3. Being bored.

Three Obsessions/Collections:
1. Ben Folds
2. blog hopping
3. keeping my mind/hands busy at all times.

Three Surprising Facts:
1. I used to watch "Lizzie McGuire" because I actually liked it.
2. Going to bed at 11pm is a late night for me.
3. I hardly had any pain when I gave birth to Annette. Even before the epidural.

Now I get to tag, hmmm...I tag Sara C., Natalie D., and Kathryn O.

Why, oh why...

Do I ever look at the Mini Boden Catalogue?

So unaffordable.

Things I Love Right Now

1. The Inspector Linley series on Mystery! good!

2. My fly swatter, because it's helped me kill about 40 flies in my house this last exaggeration, so gross.

3. Google Reader...hello! Why didn't anybody tell me about this a long time ago? You check the blogs you love to check, only when they're updated, so you don't have to keep checking the sites to see if they've updated yet. So great.

4. Cricklers. A word puzzle I can sit and do in five minutes, need I say more.

5. The Olympics. The only sporting events I TRULY enjoy watching. I am so amazed by these athletes, it's been really fun to watch.

6. These hairbows I figured out how to do last night, I can't wait to make more! Now I have something to keep my hands busy while I watch tv. These ones are a picture I borrowed from the site I got the tutorial at, not mine. I used satin ribbon and they turned out really cute.

7. Sorry. I have to say it. The perfect summer weather we're having right now. Okay, I won't dwell for those of you who don't live here.

Baby Girl Blanket

This is a gift I made for my friend for her baby. I just thought this fabric was totally her and had to get it. Then, I paired it with a pink plaid. I loved how it turned out. This is my first blanket I've ever made, believe it or not! I've made quilts, but not any blankets. It was totally fun and super easy, it just took one evening. I just looked at a blanket my friend Holly gave me when Natalie was born and copied hers! Thanks Holly!
