I'm late with my Random Tuesday post (not that I have any delusions that you are all out there waiting expectantly for it or anything!), but I've had other things on my plate today (baking me a cheesecake, playing Candyland with Sydney). Still, I cannot neglect my RT duties, so...thank goodness I found this cute little quiz on Stacy's blog.

If I've done some of these before, please forgive me. Also please forgive me for being so vain as to think you might be interested in things like this all time. Also please join in if you'd like (in the comments section, or in your own corner of Blog World). {smile}

5 Things Right Now

(and these are totally right now. I could probably think of more appropriate answers if I had time think about them, but these are things that are of interest to me and on my mind right now, "as I type").

5 things I cannot live without (that cost under $10 each)

1 McDonald's 3 chocolate chip cookies for $1
2 new, fun paperback mystery (gotta have at least one new one a month)
3 matte photo prints from Costco (like maybe 16 cents each)
4 a gallon of Milo's Splenda ice tea
5 smoothies out of my new blender

1 lost (yeah, DUH!!)
2 psych
3 monk
4 No Reservations
5 sportscenter

5 baby names you love (but aren't planning on using)

5 girls names: Everly, Lorelei, Brenna, Aiden, Laramie

5 boys names: Camden, Atticus, Aidan, can't think of any more boy names I like (girls are much easier!)

( I actually would use any of those--I LOVE names!!--but not planning on any more kiddoes. At my age, i'd have to be in a wheelchair along with them in a stroller!)

5 songs you could listen to over and over
(due to the strange mix of CDs sitting in my car right now, these are getting a lot of double and triple airplay!)

1 "Innocence" by Avril Lavigne
2 "Seasons of Love" from Rent soundtrack
3 "Jive Talkin" by the Bee Gees
4 "Jesus Freak" by DC Talk
5 "Peace Train" by Cat Stevens

2 when Gary told me he loved me
3 when my Dad got neck cancer, and Mom had a brain anuerisym (at different times, but WOW did those teach me that life is precious and that God is in control!)
4 at the birth of each of my girls (okay, that's three, but still...)
5 when i came home from my Emmaus walk (i'd been a Christian since a teenager, but i was all fired-up all over again!)

3 lost
4 blogging
5 my family

5 places you would really like to go

Heather said...

5 things to remember when you go to Disney World...

1. The sun in Florida is HOT. I don't care if you live in Louisiana. The sun in Florida, It's HOTTER.

2. Remember when you pack your bag to go into the park that you will have to carry that same bag out of the park at the end of the day. Plus 17 shopping bags of Disney merchandise. Plus 2 sleeping kids who weigh over 30 lbs. *Ugh!*

3. Do not make faces at the Disney employees. It's just not nice. They aren't allowed to make faces back.

4. Meeting Jojo from Jojo's Circus really is the best thing in a 3 year old's life. Who cares if you are her Mom? Jojo is better. LOL

5. Do not suggest to your husband that he stop and ask directions in the parks. After all how hard can it be to find Muppet Vision 3D?
