8 is Great!

8 is great, yep it is. I like the number 3 better, but for this 8 will work. It is always an honor to get an award because, in my mind, I must be doing something right or maybe it just means someone loves me. Well this time it is Christina at Rant-Rave-Roll. You should go check out her 8 is Great list.

I know you are all dying with anticipation to know 8 more things, in several categories, about me. So here goes, in no particular order. Enjoy!


  • Summer vacation
  • Nike 1/2 Marathon
  • Starting and completing my first quilt
  • My garden to produce veggies
  • Sunday soccer during the summer
  • Getting a cupcake from the Cupcake Shop for Mother's Day and sharing one with my SIL
  • Building my fantasy dream home
  • Paying off the excavator
  • Went for a run
  • Bought drip line for the garden
  • Bought tomato cages
  • Set up most of the drip line...ran out and bought more today
  • Laundry
  • Made breakfast, lunch, and dinner
  • Fought with my 6 year old
  • Bought my 22nd tomato plant


  • Take my family on a tropical vacation.....Hawaii maybe?
  • Knit
  • Visit my sister more often (she lives in Australia)
  • Spend more time with hubby (he is a bit of a work-a-holic)
  • Disappear when my kids are all yelling "Mommy" at the same time (usually they are fighting and all tattling at the same time)
  • Sleep in at least one day a husband to wake me to prepare lunch and no boys to wake me to make cocoa
  • Wave a wand and my areas of clutter would just put themselves away
  • Transport myself into the future to see how my kids turn out


  • Days of Our Lives
  • Survivor
  • Desperate Housewives
  • The Biggest Loser ( I find it to be a bit inspiring to watch these people change their lives)
  • Lost
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • The Amazing Race
  • Ugly Betty

How fun to read about you this evening!

I would love to make a quilt sometime too!

22 tomato plants! Wow! I had about 25 tomato plants once and I ended up with about 5.000 tomatoes! (That's just a guess, actually! But it was a ton!) I didn't know what to do with all of them!

I watched Days all through high school! I can't believe that those people are still on the show! I still watch Y&R, I am addicted to it! I have been watching it since just after high school and it's the same people on there as well! Crazy!

Have a great week!

I love your lists!
And this looks like fun. Definitely something I could sink my teeth into:) Thanks for thinking of me.

Thanks for thinking of me, Suzi. I am terrible about keeping up with these. Such bad bloggy manners!

I am a Grey's Anatomy freak.

Okay, a 1/2 marathon? You're crazy! Really, I can recommend a few good mental hospitals here in Utah that you can check into. You know all the stars come here when they go crazy! Maybe you could stay with Lindsay Lohan if she ever comes back. I'm just sayin.

P.S. If you find one of those magic wands that really works, let me know!

P.S.S. I can't see the picture in your last post, I think you did that on purpose.

I like your list. I'm impressed with your 1/2 marathon. (I'm impressed with a half mile...)Where is our Ugly Betty?! If they cancel it I'm going to protest!
