Candace gave me this award on her blog (which I LOVE reading). So, now I get to tell 10 things about myself and then pass it on to 10 other people.
So, here we go...
1. I love trashy reality TV series. Kardashians, Real Housewives of (insert city here), the crazier the better.
2. Reading sooths me. Novels, textbooks, cereal boxes, toothpaste ingredients. If it has words, I'll stare at it.
3. I see the world in snapshots. For my children's sake I refrain from walking around with my camera 24/7, but even my memories are formed in snapshots.
4. I LOVE spending time with my siblings, and I find joy in sharing life's experiences with them.
5. I can't sleep alone. If Sean is working late, I always pile the kids in bed for a spend the night party. Sleeping bags, movies, and snuggles are mandatory.
6. I randomly count things. Objects, mental to do lists, seconds. I know... weird.
7. If I have a spare second during the day, I plop down on the couch. I even keep a pillow and blanket there for those sacred occasions.
8. I vacuum obsessively. I can't stand dirty carpet.
9. Even the thought of a cloth or gauze in my mouth, or any one's mouth, makes me gag. This makes trips to the dentist and kids' bloody lips rather challenging.
10. I miss lab every single day I'm not in school, but I miss my babies every moment I'm away from them. Quite the predicament.

A few blogs I enjoy reading...
Candice on the rare occasion that she posts :)
Thank you ladies for sharing your life's experiences with me. They make life seem a little less challenging and a whole lot more entertaining.

Oh my gosh Amanda, I just read your 10 things about yourself, I am so most of those things!! I can relate for sure, hee he.

I don't like sleeping alone either, so Add is in bed with me if Jonathan isn't. She's a snuggle bug and I love it!

i am such a counter! my "good" number is twelve, so when i am stressed i count backwards from 12. oh! and my sis, dad, and i will fight over the cereal box at the table if there is nothing else to read. i am trying to fOrCe will to be a snuggler... not so easy cuz he is a curious, easily bored little bugger and he can't understand why mommy keeps trying to lie down in a bed full of warmth when there are so many sharp/poisonous choking hazards all around his little world that NEED to be investigated!

What a cute post! Number one cracked me up. :) Are you a bachelor fan? Oh, and I've been meaning to tell you that I've been doing yoga and I love it! Thanks for the suggestion. :)

I feel so honored to have made the list ;-) I can totally relate to your last one-- I quit work after Taylor was born, and after a while, I really missed it. I started back when she was 18 months- only working maybe 4 days a month. It's a good balance and keeps me happy.... although even on those rare days that I do work, I'm wishing I was at home with my babies.. haha
