7 Random Things About Me

Thanks to

Shelly at My Lily Eden

for this post! :)

1. I kissed about 35 guys (only one of which was an actual "boyfriend) before I met my husband. Not only was my hubby my blond-haired, blue/green-eyed first kiss--our first kiss was on our wedding day, AFTER we became husband and wife!!

2. I make this weird noise when my throat itches, to "scratch it." Evidently this is a rare "talent" but my son can do it, too.

3. I have a weakness for sweets. I can easily do without a lot of foods but dessert is very hard for me to pass up. I love all types of candy, too. I'm especially fond of Snickers, Dove dark chocolate and M&Ms.

4. I feel my emotions in my belly. Even a "happy-excited" feeling gives me a tummy ache! I don't, however, get headaches very often.

5. I'm a gum chewer. And I blow bubbles. My son has never tried gum and doesn't really know what it is. When he sees packs of gum in the store, he asks for "bubbles."

6. I have a weakness for office supplies. I love fresh Sharpies, Post-It notes, notecards, pretty envelopes, nice pens...

7. I joke around a lot with people in public. My dad does this, too. Sometimes I'm ignored and sometimes people think I'm being rude but most of the time, it gets a laugh and lightens the situation...which is just enough encouragement for me to keep doing it!

So now you know! :)

We don't so much DO costumes

Andrew doesn't even like to wear clothes, let a lone a mask, hat or other cumbersome clothing. And I'm way too cheap to spend a bunch of money on a costume, anyway, so...

Andrew went as a hunter. That's right. Camo clothes and a toy gun.

Ethan went as a sleepy baby. No, we're not neglectful parents...we live in Phoenix, where chocolate candy actually melts on Halloween, so naked baby legs are completely appropriate.

Both boys did, however, end up trying on their cousin's costume.

We enjoyed trick-or-treating...

...coming home for taco soup...

...and plenty of play time with friends and cousins.

Here's our family on Halloween!

And me with the boys.
