I wish I could...

*Write about anything I wanted to on this blog. Wow, I have some good stories but you never know who reads your blogs.

*Try out for American Idol. I am too old, but I would cave under the pressure anyhow. So for now Simon can judge me in my dreams. Trust me he already has.

*Go on a mission trip to Africa. This is one of my long-term goals.

*Abstain from cokes and chocolate. Although, Amanda has introduced me to Coke Zero and I am going to TRY to train my taste buds.

*Ask God why He created mosquitos.

*Buy incredible gifts, wrapped to perfection and all monogrammed, for all my friends and family's special occasions.

*Have more confidence in sharing Christ with people.

*Have the patience to grow my hair out again. Of course, I would probably chop it off as soon I got it to the length I liked.

*Go back in time and never date until I met Jonathan.

*Dance. It is so much fun when I do but I look like a big dork. Keegan is about the only person that likes my skillz!

*Stop making eye contact with all the kiosk people in the middle of the mall. Can I just say they make my pet peeve list?

*Speak another language

*Run long distances.

*Stop watching re-runs of The Baby Story.

*Secretly turn myself in for the show "What Not To Wear". I would just like the shopping spree and fashion help!

*And lastly, I wish I could comment AND be up to date on everyone's blog. Maybe when there is more time. HA!

haha! i love this blog! I am in full agreement with the last one for myself! This was way fun to read. her is my "I wish I could..." I wish I could be sitting with you laughing about how this baby of mine has not made his appearance and how similar this is to your pregnancy with Jack compared to Keegs...crazy!

Hey friend! Very funny! I totally agree with the 'What not to Wear' comment for myself and also The Baby Story one....reminds me of when Kyle was born and TLC and DHC (only the birth stories) were my companions while nursing! I knew exactly what was on each time I had to feed Kyle. I miss Take Home Chef, Kate+8, little people big word. Hee hee. How sad?! Are you not amazed I finally update my blog!! Anyway, we're planning over oct/nov. CANNOT wait to see y'all! We miss you all. Love youxx PS who do you want to win in American Idol (we are 2 days behind and wont see the final until Friday)

Janelle & Ella said...

I gave an "Amen" to many of the things on that list! I miss you! Hopefully I can come see you soon. Let's talk soon.

I share some of those desires. As far as cookies go, I recently discovered a sugar substitute that tastes just like sugar but has zero calories. It's called Swerve and it measures like sugar too. You can find it at Whole Foods.

Haha.. I sound like a sales person. But I figure it's like announcing the cure for some terrible world issue...we can eat cookies without the health risks of shoving tons of sugar into our systems.

Maybe next we will achieve world peace.

Too cute! I am with you on wanting to post certain stories but not being sure who is looking....

Also, I am all about Coke Zero. It took a little while to adjust to it, but now I really prefer that and Diet Dr. Pepper to just about anything else. Cherry Coke Zero is pretty good, too.

A is for Audrey said...

i feel you on the making eye contact with the kiosk people. i mean, my hair is straight, so i don't need it straightened; i'm usually on my cell phone when i walk by the t-mobile kiosk, so don't need another one of those; and i'm also usually chasing Audrey around, so NO THANK YOU on the hand cream/nail cream, whatever it is...sorry, had to get that off my chest.

i wish i didn't have this temper.
and i wish i could see you more.

I enjoy reading your blog too! I think you hooked me with the baby story when you forgot the nipple at the doctor's office. I can totally relate to the wild adventures!
