In the spirit of "tagging", a few random thoughts

1. I get grouchy trying to translate the quote, "a friend in need is a friend indeed!" into some meaning.

2. If you subscribe to People Magazine, then we already have a head start in our relationship.

3. Boy bands should never be allowed to release their own version of a Christmas song.

4. I've always wanted to bare my testimony with a French accent, just to see my ward members'
reactions.

5. I enjoy a good birthing story now and again, but anything over 3 minutes should be illegal.

6. I burn more than 800 calories 6 days a week so that I can have a daily 900 calorie bowl of ice cream (hey, it's only 3 cups!) and call it a 100 calorie snack.

7. To me, having 3 girls within 3 years was like winning the lottery.

8. I ALWAYS stress about the fact that I will be an empty-nester at age 46 and am gearing up for a mid-life next year when all my kids are in school for a full-day.

9. I tried talking my sister into insisting to her Dr. while discussing her birthing plan that she give birth wearing bright red stilettos, just to see what he would say.

10. I'm happy that my family loves me- my wacky side and all!

Aileen,
NOBODY in the world thinks like you do and that is why you constantly entertain us and make us laugh.

You are one in a million and I love you for it!

Your 'friend in need' comment made me stop and think about it for a while until I'd figured it out, but you're right, it was frustrating! This post was hilarious!

I have read about a hundred of these tags, and this one is by far the best!! My favorite is number 2. No, number 6. No, number 3. No, number 4. No....

This was the best tag I have ever read. Why did you stop at 10?! Please give us more.

I am so embarrassed right now. That comment above is really from me. I was logged in as Branigan.

Actually, I should have just not said anything and let you think my husband was creepy.

Funny you should mention People magazine, I was just talking to Vicki Taylor and we both agree it is NOT considered a "trashy" magazine. In fact I get caught up on ALL my celebrity gossip from them, because they only print the truth. ;)

I burn my 600 calories a week by laughing as I read you and Katie and Jane's blogs!
