The tag bug bit me (yes, Clare I'm calling you a bug :-) ... hope you don't mind!), so here goes. Lots of totally random stuff about me. I'm defying one of the rules though and not tagging anyone back, so if you're reading this and you'd like to play along, please do! Always a fun way of learning more about other fellow bloggers.
Ok, so the rules of 8 are:
1. Mention person who tagged you: Clare - The Pitter-Patter
2. Complete your list of 8s
3. Tag 8 people (again, not doing it!)
8 THINGS I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO
*Starting small group at my church in two weeks and meeting new people
*Getting a fresh coat of paint on our house this summer
*Our next trip to Silky's for frozen custard... yum (especially in October for their pumpkin spice)
*When my husband finally gets vacation days so we can take more trips together
*Having a little extra time away from work to concentrate on our family once the baby arrives
*Seeing our embroys on screen for the first time during our upcoming IVF cycle!
*Watching my husband's expression as he holds our baby for the first time
*Not have to constantly think about this IF stuff
8 THINGS I DID YESTERDAY
*Got ready for work. Went to work... nothing out of the ordinary
*Enjoyed lunch at home with my kids (fondly referred to as my puh puhs)
*Made "the" IVF call
*Bought a bottle of my favorite wine, and didn't get carded :D (though my 30 yr old husband does!)
*Worked outside, tidying up the landscaping
*Sat in the grass beside two wild bunnies grazing for food; the CUTEST yardwork I've ever done!
*Shamelessly played Guitar Hero on the Wii w/ my husband
*Watched a little Jon & Kate Plus 8 (so sad for that family! please pray for them)
8 THINGS I WISH I COULD DO
*Take a short retreat to the beach... lake or oceanside, just to get away from it all for a sec
*Buy a new, comfortable couch for relaxing in the family room
*Replace the dated & worn parkay flooring in the upstairs with something more warm & inviting
*Spend less time at work and more time working on our house and "us"
*Invest in a professional camera and polish my skills
Now for all the really important stuff.... ;)
*Buy baby stuff and be an insider in the "mommy club"

*Spend the day feeling more wanted and fulfilled after hearing someone call me "mommy"
