I got tagged... maybe you will too!

I feel special that out of all the people listed on the left hand side of her page... Britney tagged me!!!

Here's how to play: List 3 joys, 3 of your fears, 3 of your goals, 3 current obsessions/collections and 3 random, surprising facts about yourself. At the end of your post, tag more people.

3 Joys:
1.I love my family. I am convinced Eric is the greatest guy ever. He handles my quirks so well. I also think my parents are awesome! Eric and I get along so well with them. I adore all my nieces and nephews and hope my kids are half as cute/smart/funny. I also get along surprisingly well with my siblings and enjoy spending time with them.
2. I like cooking. Growing up my mom always cooked at least one meal a day. Anytime company would come over they would always rave about how good the cooking was and my mom can whip up a huge meal for millions of people all by herself and have it all get done at the same time. I am working on being able to do that one day. For now I enjoy cooking for Eric and myself and anyone else I can invite over. It makes me feel good when something turns out right.
3.Learning new things. This is not to be confused with school, which I openly despise. I love reading books that I choose to read and learning about historical people, places and events and not have to worry about if I will remember the right things. I started learning how to sew last summer and want to learn more. I like seeing the results at the end of something and taking pride that I learned how to do that.

3 Fears
1.I think my biggest fear is Eric dying. I honestly don't know what I would do if it happened and it scares the crap out of me for him not to be there.
2. I, too, am scared of the unknown. I don't like the dark; I refuse to watch scary movies, they give me nightmares; and I can give myself the creeps in any situation and literally scare the mess out of myself.... Eric laughs when I scare myself for no apparent reason, but then he feels bad and tries to make me feel safe.
3. When my kids become teenagers..... THAT SCARES ME TO DEATH.... how will I not screw that up???

3 Goals
1.I want to be a mom. I don't know when, but that is my ultimate goal in life. I really want to be a good one, too.
2.I want to learn more hobbies. I started scrapbooking today, but I'm not sure how good I will do or how long I will keep it up, but I really want to stay on top of it. I also want to become proficient at sewing and lastly I want to be as good a cook as my mom.
3.I would like to find a way to lose weight while sitting on the couch and not cutting back on Dr. Pepper and ice cream.

3 current obsessions
1. Sleeping... I really like my sleep.
2. Movies... Eric and I LOVE movies.
3. Scrapbooking... Eric took me to buy supplies last night and I started today... we'll see how long it lasts.

3 Random and surprising facts about myself
1. I like the beach... I'm paler than an albino after winter in Alaska, but this summer I have gained an appreciation of the beach. We used to go every summer when I was a kid, but I never liked it because you could never get the sand off, but I've realized this summer that I like the beach.
2. I hate driving... when I was a teenager I loved it and drove everywhere. I was constantly driving to Arkansas or Memphis, but now I refuse to get behind the wheel. I am terrified of driving, I guess it goes along with the fear of the unknown, I don't know if there is construction on the road ahead, I don't know if the guy next to me is driving drunk... there are too many unknown factors and I can't handle it.
3. I LOVE checking the mail. It is the highlight of my day and holidays like Memorial Day really mess that up. I love seeing which movie we got from Netflix or if there is a Better Homes and Gardens magazine in there. Eric sends in rebates a lot, so those are always fun to get.

When I got my camera out to post my b-day pictures I found a bunch of old pictures on my card that are pretty random and funny.... so I thought I would post them for the heck of it....

Yes, those are pictures of the Girls Gone Wild bus driving down I-40 in between Conway and Little Rock..... Eric thought it was hilarious....

On a more wholesome note......

That's me and my homemade chicken pot pie.... It was so pretty.... and good too!!

It's my Birthday!!!

So Eric woke me up this morning with a big box in my lap.....

So naturally I started opening it....

and what was inside......

A Generic CHI!!!!

I was so happy!!!!

Then he took me to Chick-fil-a for lunch and now we're back at the office for the rest of the night....

I'm as happy as a clam.... Notice my amazingly straight hair in the above photo!!!!!

It's been awhile....

I just realized how long it has been since I updated in here. Nothing has really happened... Eric did go out and sale on Saturday and got a sale... WHOO-HOO!!! There's a little extra money for us. My parents are coming to see us Memorial Day weekend and my dad said it is my job to plan what we will do... so I started looking up things to do in Florida, and aside from the beach, EVERYTHING IS SO FRICKIN' EXPENSIVE!!!! I don't know what we'll end up doing. I feel really bad though because we don't even have local tv channels, so I'm really afraid they will come for 6 days and be bored out of their minds! Everything that I've found to do is at least $20 per person for admission... therefore if we only do ONE thing per day, not including gas to get there and food to eat, that's $40 per couple, then they will be here 6 days, so that is at least $240 per couple and if anyone knows my mom you know she's not up for spending that kind of money, and I don't really blame her... so then that reiterates my point... WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO???? I'm a little stressed out about it. I'm really excited for my parents to come, but I'm worried they will get REALLY bored... I mean, here is my daily schedule.... I wake up at 9 when Eric gets out of bed... he then wakes me up at 9:45am when he's leaving for work... I usually roll out of bed around 11am then I shower and get ready and mess around on the internet until Eric comes home for lunch around 3pm. Then I go back to the office with him and we sit up there until about 10pm when we come home, eat dinner, and go to bed.... I'm really not thinking my parents are going to be down with that schedule.... o well, I have a couple of weeks more to stress about it.
