8 Favorite TV Shows
I don't watch tv at all. Sometimes I feel pretty out of the loop because I have no clue about all the current shows, but it has been a great decision for our family. So instead, I think I'll write 8 things that I do to unwind instead of watching tv:

Take Bubble baths
Curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book
Practice piano
Blog
Enjoy friends blogs
Scrapbook
Talk and laugh with my hubby
Tidy up around the house (I know that sounds so ridiculous!) but somehow it helps me feel a sense of order to get organized again after the kids go to bed.


8 Things I Did Yesterday:
Taught Turbo Kick at the YMCA (a packed class- because of all the New Years resolutions!)
Dropped Celeste off at kindergarten
Went grocery shopping with 3 little ones... that's always an adventure worth noting!
Prayed for Katie and her family :(
Practiced my solo for Sunday
Followed a healthy eating plan with my hubby (fruits, veggies, lean meats, whole grains... with one glorious day off every week!)
Organized my church young women notebook
Changed approximately 9 diapers (including nighty-night diapers)


8 Things I Look Forward To:
Date nights with Mr. Wonderful
Getting through the process of moving in one piece... I hope!
Jakey's first birthday this week
Running my first marathon in October with my hubby (that is, if I don't get prego again)
Getting all my kids potty-trained!
Sunday afternoons for our weekly tradition (snack and snooze)
My kids baptism days
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ


8 Favorite Restaurants
Panera!
Tim Hortons
Chipotle
Red Lobster
Smoky Bones
Olive Garden
Boston Market
Mexican Restaurants
(yum... I'm hungry now!)


8 Things on My Wish List
Currently... that the children in Gaza will be able to live without fear. :( That situation is so heartbreaking.
A home in Milwaukee with brand new carpet
Sustained and lasting peace in our home
My family lived closer
I had more time to read
Another baby... someday I hope!
A new dayplanner (hint hint... my b-day is coming up sweets! xoxo)
Yes, I can count. That's only 7... I can't come up with any more.
