realizations

I have had numerous realizations lately.

They include:

Ellie is growing up and now asks for "privacy."
My next door neighbor is a little crazy.
I have never worked in my "field" and that is ok.
Time alone in my own house is about the best thing ever.
I really hate to work out, but will do it when a bathing suit is in my imminent future.
Wii boxing is a kick-ass workout. My arms are killing me.
Orange and Pink can go together.

I love brussel sprouts.
And hummus.
I sometimes feel inadequate after reading the blogs I follow. These women are crazy talented.
Facebook is terribly addicting.
I can no longer eat popcorn. It leaves me with terrible gastrointestional issues.
My husband looks great with longer hair (wink wink honey!)
I like laundry.
I am freakishly strong when it comes to rearranging furniture.
Tator Tots are better now than they were when I was a kid.

I am more gypsy-like than I thought I was.
I finally perfected the pancake. Mine are better than IHOPs now.
I don't feel guilty with all the tv E is watching. What the hell else am I supposed to do with her every second of every wintery day?
E has graduated to real movies. Hello Lion King!
Turkey Bacon is better than real bacon. The key is making it really crispy.
Ellie just isn't ready to use the potty.
Sometimes an almost 3 year old wins the grocery store checkout lane battle.

You are so awesome, Tia, I miss you so much! I hate that distance has made us unable to be adult friends like we were kid friends! I am having a horrible day and you just made me smile :)

Loved your list! Here's my 2 cents:
-Wii boxing = crazy!! Totally gets me out of breath
-Am dreading bathing suit season this summer & am contemplating actually working out in my swimsuit for motivation
-Brussel sprouts? Really?
-Laundry? Really? Wanna come over?
-I am 100% in agreement with you over the turkey bacon. LOVE IT.
-Facebook is a time-sucking devil.
-You, too, are crazy talented!

This is the best personal revelation list that I have read in quite a while, Tia. Funny and interesting. Loved learning a bit more about you.

Before I sign off, I must wholeheartedly agree re the brussel sprouts. Miss Keri just doesn't know what she is missing. Maybe we could do some sort of brussel sprout inspired post for her sometime! :)

I just started using Facebook and have become addicted to it too. lol I also sometimes feel inadequate after reading some of these talented people's blogs. My youngest brother can't stand the smell of popcorn...what a nutter.

I love you Tia! and i really miss you. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of popcorn in your life. Jen had the idea to fry garbanzo beans so I tried it the other night and they are delicious and somewhat popcorn esque. I thought of you while i was eating them, and wanted to share them with you. so next movie date i am sneaking in fried garbanzo beans. I promise they will be better than the soynuts i brought last time. xo
