After the birth of our first child, I had a really hard time remembering who “me” was. I was a Mom (aka a boob, a lifeguard, a nurse, a watchdog), and I couldn’t remember what else.
So with Smiles rounding the corner- hopefully- I wanted to make a list of things about me. This way, if I’m having issues remembering what I enjoy doing or the fun things that make me “me”, I can remember. To help me out (and have a bit more fun), I visited a few survey websites, and used some of their questions. So here it goes!
My Favorite Foods:
Ice cream: Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia (not the low-fat yogurt kind, the real stuff), Vanilla with caramel syrup, Baskin Robins’ Love Potion 31 & Blue Gum
Cookie: I won’t turn down a cookie unless it’s supposed to be healthy for you, but I love sour cream softies (let me know if you want the recipe!), chocolate chip, and the really soft sugar cookies with the yummy soft, crumbly frosting
I feel like a new woman after…
Getting my car washed
Getting my eyebrows waxed
Getting my eyebrows waxed
Getting a massage
In my spare time, I love…

Is going on a spontaneous trip somewhere- by myself or with one other close friend (I’ll have to write a blog about some of my previous adventures)
Is taking a hot bath or shower
People I love…
My family means the world to me…
My love language is…
Gifts, then quality time
Having flowers around the house
Having a really clean house
Having a really clean house that I didn’t clean
Keeping most of the lights on in the house, windows open, the fresh breeze
