What is your favorite carnival/amusement park ride?
I like the carousel. It just makes me feel like a kid again.
How do you react in uncomfortable social situations?
I start laughing at inappropriate times. Nice.
On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy discussing deep, philosophical topics?
5, it just depends on who I’m talking to. I like to do it but only to an extent. I’m not a person who beats a dead horse.
Did you get a flu shot this year? If not, do you plan to?
No. I was too sick, they wouldn’t give it to me.
Approximately how many hours per week do you spend watching television?
Too many. Being at home with a toddler, I see a lot of the Wonder Pets and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

I hope you all are well, I'm going to try and visit my blogging buds in the next couple of days. I've been really lacking on my visits. I need to have a fire lit under me! Oh, maybe that wouldn't be so bad at this point, I need the warmth!!

The weather here was warm at the beginning of the week so it was nice to get out and enjoy it a bit. The peanut has been knocked off her schedule a lot lately so she has been a grump. However, I did get a couple of good shots of her...
She also has started to eat a few more foods...
She actually really likes Kix cereal. Ask me why, I don't know. I'm personally not a fan, but put a little milk in their and she devours it. She's actually eating it all by herself now, the big girl.
The peanut has also started to say a couple of sentences. I eat was the first. I poopie was the second. Not too bad for a 21 month old!
I hope all of your weekends are great!

Devise a list of 5-10 courses you would take to fix your life. It’s more fun to be in classes with friends, so include one class from the person who tagged you that you’d also like to take.
1. I'm so there with Sarah on taking a class that teaches us how to love excercise as much as a bag of chips. Whew, if I could only patent that one I'd be a rich lady!
2. How to Blog while cleaning.
3. On that note, how to take a picture without thinking, "This one will be great in my blog".
4. 101 Ways to get your dog to clean up her own fur.
5. Introduction to getting the stank out of your diaper champ.
6. Advanced Football. Maybe this would help me to care a little more and my husband and I could banter about it on a level past..."Yeah, Peyton really did get picked 6 times this week." And for those that know what I'm talking about...Can you stinking believe that???
7. Advanced Development of Food that tastes good without butter. I don't know what this food is, but I sure would like to. Everything is better with butter...except maybe my hips!
8. Getting past your fears and getting on with your life. This is in reference to my ornothopobia. Fear of birds. I'm so not kidding!!
I tag anyone reading this...have fun!

Anyway, yesterday, while listening, they were telling about these bloggers who are 95 and 108 years old. Isn't that awesome? You have to go visit Olive, the 108 year old blogger at http://www.allaboutolive.com.au/. Unfortunately the 95 year old blogger is in Spanish so I can't read anything but the basic part. If you can though I encourage you to go to her website at http://www.allaboutolive.com.au/.

You know, since I got married I never have time with just girls. I always have the peanut attached to my side and I just thought it would be so much fun. You know, kind of relive my youth days a bit. Looking back I remembered spending lots of nights going dancing with my friends and just laughing and talking and I missed it.
I had another friend that lives nearby tell me she was going to have a weinie roast the same night and invited our family to that. You know, just sitting around a campfire. Toasting hot dogs and munching on smores. Laughing and talking, sounds like fun! Of course I couldn’t do both and I had committed to my sister in law first so that’s the way I went.
Taking a ride in the limo was fun. I had a glass of wine, which I just never do. Please people, I am way too cheap to buy alcohol. Not to mention, I don’t really care for the way it makes me feel and I don’t really like it around the peanut. Anyway, as a result of not drinking since I got pregnant with the exception of a couple of sips since the end of breastfeeding, it didn’t take too long before I was feeling it. And I’m talking not in a good way.
To compound the issue, I was surrounded, with the exception of my sister, Erika, by a gaggle of girls who’s apparent only topic of conversation was drinking, sex and more drinking. Wow, the depth! Mind you, I’m completely incapable of small talk so this to me is like sticking needles in my eyes.
Let me just tell you how by 9pm I was calling my husband begging him to come and get me.
On Tuesday I talked to my weinie roast friend to ask her how things had gone. She relayed the story of how her daughter got sick at the gathering but she wished I would have been there to shoo everyone away. Apparently they stayed another two hours. Is it totally sad I wished I would have been there too?
Yeah, when it comes down to it, I think I’m just a weinie roast kind of girl.

First of all, I've had a bread machine for years and haven't used it. It's just sat there rather helpless for the longest wishing for something delicious smelling to bake. Well, a couple of weeks ago I decided to give it another whirl. Oh, did I forget to mention why it hadn't been used in forever? I'm trying to forget it...the weirdest looking bread you ever saw. Who knows what I did wrong, but it was definitely not edible.
So anyway, last week I tried once again to make just a regular old bread of white. Holy cow was that thing delicious. And we blew threw it in like a day and a half. So, naturally, I had to make another one. And another, and another, and another. Yep, it's been going on for 2 weeks now and I see no end in sight. As a matter of fact, my house will soon again be filled with the delicious smell of fresh baked bread in another hour now. YUMMO!!
The other thing I simply must tell you about, makes me look like this...
And what can it be?
Yes, pumpkin flavored ice cream. I have been looking for it for weeks and finally found it at my friendly neighborhood Marsh. I had been told Kroger had, but that was a lie from the pit. My mouth is watering thinking of it now. It's like pumpkin pie, ice cream...yes, creamy form!! Holy cow this stuff is good. The price tag is a lot more than I wanted to pay...I think like $6...but I will only buy it once and oh my gosh, am I happy that I did. Now my hips on the other hand, may feel a little different!
