I read a bunch of blogs. Like way too many to admit to. One of my favorites did a 7 Random Things post the other day. My mind is so full of stuff right now that I can’t come up with a topic to post on. So I thought I would follow suit. (Since I’m trying to get back in the swing of blogging.)
So 7 random photos from 2009.
My lovely lovely doggie, Gypsy Rose. I love how much she loves to play in the mud. I love how she hunches over like this to look at me. I adore her blue eyes.
The only time while we were at Disney that Caedmon acted like he was a little kid instead of a “too cool for everything” pre-teen.
My favorite part of the Disney trip with Kathryn. We explored France in Epcot together. She is in love with Paris for some reason. We spoke with horrible French accents and tried on Berets. It was so much fun.
My lovely kids. A true picture of their personalities. My son the serious one, and my daughter the dreamer. Who even knows where her little mind had taken her too while I snapped away. I ADORE this photo.
My favorite picture from Christmas. I just makes me smile.
-7 Random Questions-
The first two questions I get asked a lot. The rest I used google to find random questions. lol
1. How do you find time to knit, crochet etc.
I don’t find time I make it. Seriously, I don’t have time to sit and just do crafts all the time. Thing is, it is important to me. So, I steal bits of time when I can.
2. Do you enjoy homeschooling your children.
No. Maybe that’s not the correct answer, but it’s honest. I don’t enjoy homeschooling the kids. I do enjoy having them home with me though. I wouldn’t trade the extra time I have spent with them for anything. I love that my 8 year old daughter is still into playing with Littlest Pet Shop pets, while the 8 year old girl next door is trying to decided if Edward is hotter then Jacob. So while I don’t enjoy the actual schooling part, the pay off has made it worth while.
3. Would you rather have money or love?
Love. That’s an easy question. I think it’s the only reason I’m able to stay relatively happy right now.
4. What is your dream vacation?
It changes daily. I would love to take the kids and hubby and do a RV vacation through America. Just a big long road trip. I would love to go explore other countries, Ireland, Scotland for me. I would love to one day take Kathryn to France. Caedmon is obsessed with Doctor Who and really wants to visit Cardiff and London one day. I would love to go to Alaska some day soon. So I guess my dream vacation is going somewhere new and exploring the area with my family.
5. What’s the last sporting event you watched?
Football with the hubby. I thought I would be safe from football when College football ended. Now I’m looking forward to the end of NFL football. lol But the last, game I actually watched was the Vikings kicking butt against the Cowboys. Hubby is a big fan of Favre and was thrilled.
6. When you were in school, did you speak up in class? Did you sit in front or the back?
I was fairly shy as a kid/teenager. Heck, I still am. So no, I’ve never been one to speak up anywhere and I like being in the back of the room if possible. Since my last name started with a W and we were usually seated alphabetically it always worked out well.
7. What was your favorite book as a child?
Mandy by Julie Andrews. I loved that book. Which reminds me that I need to read it to the kids. I bought it just because my name is Mandi (used to spell it with a “y” when I was little). I fell in love with it though and probably read it a hundred times.
-What are your 7 favorite TV Shows- (these are shows that are still on the air. The list would be different if I included canceled shows that I watch over and over.)
-Criminal Minds -The Mentalist -NCIS -Heroes -The Middle -So You Think You Can Dance -Desperate Housewives
