Well lookie here...

I haven't been asked to participate in one of these in awhile! A big thanks to Sarah at A Buckeye in Badgerland for nominating me. You can probably tell just by the name of her blog that we have something big in common. :) And as she said, who doesn't like the opportunity to talk about themselves? :)

{11 Facts}

1. If you told me 10--or even 5--years ago that I would one day be the mom to three little boys, I would have called bullsh*t. Four weeks until I give birth to my third, and I'm still trying to process it. I'm sooooooooooo beyond lucky.

2. Being a fan of Cleveland sports teams gives you more character than you could ever imagine. I've been "waiting until next year" since I was born, but I'm never give up on them.

3. I spent 10 months living alone in Indiana about a year after I graduated college. Obviously, by the short tenure, I was not impressed (sorry to all you Hoosiers--that state is just not for me).

4. As the third of five kids, I have a bit of a middle-child complex. It's an ongoing battle. I try to keep it in check.

5. I think this commercial is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. If that gives away my sense of humor, so be it.

6. Most nights, I'm really excited for my kids to go to bed so I can finally relax on the couch with my husband--but five minutes after I've sat down, I miss them like crazy. It's such a strange paradox.

7. Every time I drive through the OSU campus, I wish I could go back to college. Well, as long as I didn't have to go back to class, obviously. :)

8. I L-O-V-E the feeling of someone running their hands through my hair. Luckily, my four-year-old does this absentmindedly if we're watching TV together.

9. I am counting down the days until we can put up our Christmas decorations. I REFUSE to do it before Thanksgiving, but you can bet your bippy I'll be decking the halls while all the other schmucks are waiting in line for Black Friday sales...

10. I CANNOT WAIT TO HAVE A BEER. Nine months is sooooooooo long. Almost there...

11. I aspire to be a better blogger. I know my posting will pick up once I'm home with the newest munchkin, but right now, between my full-time job & taking care of the kiddos in the evening, there's just not enough time OR motivation in the day...

{Questions from Sarah}
1. What's your favorite dessert? Anything with coconut, chocolate, peanut butter, or hey, how about all three?!

2. What did you think about the ending to Lost? You know, I only watched the first season and the last season consistently, but I cried during the entire finale. I thought it was great :)

3. What's your favorite talk show? Is it a bad thing that I don't watch them? Not even on maternity leave. I'm the crazy mom with a newborn who's watching "A Baby Story" and crying everything the kid is born.

4. Tell me a joke. Oh, honey, I wish I could, but the only ones I can remember are the ones my husband tells, and, well...they're not exactly appropriate for this venue. :)

5.  What is something you believe in? Karma. Better mind yourself, just sayin'.

6. What is something you don't believe in? Ugh, this seems sooooooo about fairies? Yeah, I think I'll go with fairies...

7. Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts? (Or some other coffee chain?) Starbucks, hands down. But I only drink the chai lattes. I can't stand coffee; I don't understand how something can smell so good & taste so awful.

8. Do you wear leggings as pants? Wish I were that brave. Maybe after I have this kid & get rid of some extra weight. I've seen some really cute stuff on Pinterest that I think I could pull off, but at this moment in

9. What would you eat as your last meal? Piada. Next time you're in Cbus, YOU MUST GO.

10. What is something you are obsessed with? NCIS. It's a ridiculous obsession, I totally admit that. But to me, the show is like a warm blanket--it's familiar & comfortable, and you know pretty much exactly what you're going to get. Plus, Michael Weatherly? YUMMO.

11. Do you have a loyalty to a certain brand? (Kraft mac n cheese, Folgers coffee, Charmin toilet paper, etc.) Target. I would rather drive further and pay a bit more than go to WalMart.

{Questions from me}
1. What's your favorite memory from your college days, & why?

2. You don't have to give away your personal candidate preference,
but what are your thoughts on the results of the election?

3. iPhone, Droid, or...?

4. Any Pinterest-inspired victories?

5.  Best Christmas tradition in your family?

6. If you could live anywhere in the U.S., where would you choose to call home?

7. Favorite go-to quick dinner (yup, I'm totally looking for ideas...)?

8. Worst job you ever had & why?

9. If you knew you were going to lose someone close to you,
what's the one thing you'd wan that person to know?

10. Favorite slumber party memory?

11. Can you babysit for me sometime in January? Seriously, I'm gonna need a break.

Thanks again for the opportunity, Sarah--I had fun. And GO BUCKS!!! :)
