Tag, I'm it.....

Well, for those of you who don't know there is a little game that the bloggers are playing.
This one is Tag and I'm it! I have to tell 8 things about myself, you probably don't know! And then Tag 8 others! Oh gee where do I start:

1. I am obsessed with Nip/Tuck. I mean I dream about it and everything. It probably has something to do with that hunk of a man Julian McMahon (Christian) I watched all 3 seasons on DVD within 3 weeks! Many nights of staying up until 3:00 or 4:00 am to "watch just one more" it is addicting!!

2. I am a horrible and I mean horrible late night eater....well you could have probably guessed from my not so hot mom body huh!?!? I raid the cupboards after 10:00PM. It is not a good habit.

3. I get teary eyed when I see the hospital that I had my kids at. Just one smell of the hospital and my uterus is aching!! I would have a baby everyday of the year if I could. Nothing in the world compares to the birth experience.

4. One thing that I wish I had in my life......or I guess I should say 1 person that I wish I would have met is my grandmother. My mom's mom. She died of lymphoma when my mom was just 3 years old. Most of all I wish that my mom would have known her mother. My mom and sister and I are all so close and I just wish my mom would have had a relationship with her mom like we do.

5. One thing that I couldn't live with out is my email and TiVo.......I don't know what life was like before high speed internet and TiVo.

6. I cried at my wedding......and then freaked out.....(seriously) because I couldn't find my mom who was sitting in the pew like any other mother of the bride would be. I looked out there and didn't see her and started asking Jess "where is my mom, where is my mom" oh and Jess bawled like a baby during the ceremony. I had to wipe his tears.

7. I almost named my daughter Ava......Jagger. Yes, when I had Ava I wanted to name her Jagger. I loved the name and was so torn between Ava and Jagger. Jess really liked Ava and the day after I had her I was like OK what are we going to name her we have waited long enough and of course his response was "what ever you want babe, I don't care" and at that moment I knew I had to name her Ava. I guess somehow I knew that I would have another baby and I would name him Jagger. I'm so glad that I didn't name her Jagger now.....well it is not like we even use the name Jagger.......if you ask the poor kid what his name is he responds with "CHUNKY"

8. I had the baby blues when my sister had her daughter. Seriously this is the honest truth. I had the baby blues when my sister had Ivy. I cried about all of this weird stuff. Specifically, the day after Ivy was born we went back to the hospital to visit and I was misty eyed the whole time and when it was time to go my mom and I went down to the cafeteria to have dinner and I started bawling......I thought that Kyle (my sister's husband) didn't want us there and I was soooo emotional just like I had had my own baby. It was strange but then again I should have expected it I'm the biggest sap there is!

My Soccer Stud!

Holden is quite the little soccer star. This is his first year playing and at his first game he scored the only 2 goals of the game. On his game Wednesday night he assisted with 1 goal and scored the winning goal for his team right at the last second!!! Literally! I know I sound like a bragging soccer mom but he really is good! :) I know not my best shots (actions is a little different) by any means but you get the point.....
