{ 6.24.06 }


Ahhh....woke up this morning to it lightly raining outside. I love Saturday mornings like this. Sort of makes me feel less guilty for wanting to stay in my PJs a little longer. :)

I changed the look of my blog a bit and added a scrolling Slide show. Very fun!

I started working on the kits for the mini-album classes that I'm teaching in July. So much fun to spread out on the floor and get these kits ready! They are full of buttons, brads, ribbons, lots of fun little things. Still not finished...

Today I'm going to do a meme challenge that was given on 2Peas this past week. Great way to get to know people. :)


FIRST NAME? Jennifer

WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? Not that I know of. I was almost named Stephanie, though.

WHEN DID YOU LAST CRY? Yesterday, I think.

DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Yes!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Natural smoked turkey (no antibiotics - tastes like REAL turkey!)

DO YOU HAVE KIDS? Yes, my sweet son Noah.

IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? Sure!

DO YOU HAVE A JOURNAL? My blog and scrapbooks are my journal.

DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? Yes.

DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? No, I had them out when I was 4, right before Christmas! I remember getting a Santa Claus doll while I was in the hospital. :) My Dad loved to tell the story of me being wheeled out of the operating room, up on all fours yelling, "MY THROAT HURTS!"

WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? NO WAY.

DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? No.

DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? Most of the time, and that's only because of the Lord.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR? I love Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby (peanut-butter filled chocolate covered pretzels in malt ice cream with peanut butter ribbons and fudge). YUM! I like ice cream with lots of stuff in it!

SHOE SIZE? 8.5

RED OR PINK? I love both!

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? When I worry too much.

WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? My Dad. He died of lung cancer in Feb. 2005.

WHEN AND WHERE WERE YOU BORN? 1969 in Houston.

WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Black Old Navy pajama pants and a white tank top.

WHAT IS THE LAST THING YOU ATE? Hmm, I think it was a Skinny Cow no-sugar added chocolate bar last night while I was putting together class kits.

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? Right now? The Lilo and Stitch show, so it's the theme to Hawaii Five-O! :D

IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? red, apple green, or pink?

FAVORITE SMELL? Anything Citrus! (I am tired of vanilla everything)

WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED WITH ON THE PHONE? A person who called at 6:30 a.m. and said, "oh...sorry, I think I have the wrong number." @@ I sort of groaned at her and hung up.

THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE YOU MEET? Probably hair.

DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? Hmm...probably decorating. I love to decorate my home. And I love teaching.

FAVORITE DRINK? Starbucks coffee, ice water

FAVORITE SPORT? To watch? College (Longhorn) football. Two more months!!

HAIR COLOR? Brown with some red highlights

EYE COLOR? Very light brown, almost golden. (same color as my Dad's eyes)

DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? No, just glasses for distance.

FAVORITE FOOD? Love Italian and Mexican!

SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDING? I love cheesy, clean girly movies. I can't stand movies that are so full of the f-word that you can't even follow the plot.

LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? "Nacho Libre" at the theater. (hilarious!) "The Terminal" at home. (for the 2nd time. LOVE that movie!)

WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? white

SUMMER OR WINTER? ALWAYS Winter. I love Winter holidays, colors, and clothes!

HUGS OR KISSES? Well, both.

FAVORITE DESSERT? Tiramisu, Creme Brulee, or anything with any combination of chocolate, peanut butter and/or banana. :) I also love real lemon desserts.

WHAT BOOKS ARE YOU READING? None at the moment. Do scrapbook magazines count? :)

WHAT'S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? It's a laptop, so it's a touchpad.

FAVORITE SOUNDS? Hearing Noah and David laughing while David is getting Noah to bed.

ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? The Beatles! My Mom had a huge crush on Ringo Starr when she was younger. And I still have a lot of her Beatles 45-records. That reminds me...I need to d/l "Day Tripper" from Itunes! Love that song.

THE FURTHEST YOU'VE BEEN FROM HOME? Hmm, I went on a cruise by myself when I was in college. (Virgin Islands...FUN!) Also went to Quebec City for part of our honeymoon.

IF YOU COULD PICK ANY TWO PEOPLE TO HAVE DINNER WITH, WHO WOULD THEY BE? I have no idea. Probably Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa, my favorite chef!) and someone funny like Jack Black or Jim Carrey, ha.

Have a wonderful Saturday! :)
