Lisa and Queen B both posted a little meme/tag on their blog. They did not tag I am tagging myself. (Due to lack of material today)

Where is your cell phone? on the that I will forget to take it with me to the ballgame tonight.

Your significant other? at work... where he is 95% of the time.

Your hair? not good today. Kinda mousy brown with a few too many grey hairs popping up.

Your mother? 2 hours away.

Your father? With my mother. How I wish they were closer.

Your favorite things? My family.

Your dream last night? I never remember my dreams. I am not sure I have them.

Your favorite drink? It was Diet Coke. I gave up soft drinks over a year ago. Now, my drink of choice is a glass of ice water with lemon. ( I know I am living on the edge-huh?)

Your dream/goal? To sleep through the night again. To go to the bathroom alone. (these are short term goals, but they are important!)

The room you’re in? Living room

Your ex? Nice guy. I have no idea where he is right now.

Your fear? Dying before my kids grow up.

Where do you want to be in 6 years? Right where I am. (with more money, less debt, better hair and much skinnier)

Where were you last night? Which part of last night? I was dropping Claire off at dance, getting the boys hair cut, picking Claire up from dance, cooking dinner, taking Claire to Softball practice, taking Chase to baseball practice.... but at 9:05 I was on my couch glued to the tube. Finally, a new episode of Grey's Anatomy. It did not disappoint.

What you’re not? A Hunter. A Fisher. A Camper. A Sports junkie. A Car dealer. (oh, hey I am NOT my husband)

Muffins? Blueberry

One of your wish list items? Only one...please let me name two. A laptop and a new SLR camera.

Where you grew up? Eastern North Carolina

The last thing you did? I just threw in another load of laundry. (does that count?)

What are you wearing? Yoga pants and a t-shirt. I taught Creative Movement this morning and thought if I just kept on the "workout attire" it would inspire me to go to the gym. It hasn't.

Your TV? Is on entirely too much. It has to be tired.

Your pets? A 1 year old black lab named TAR.

Your computer? A Dell desktop. There are too many of us using it. I need a laptop!

Your life? Complete. Very crazy and busy. But Complete.

Your mood? Tired. Ready for bed. And it is only 4:00.

Missing someone? My father-in-law. He passed away in October. It still does not seem real.

Your car? White GMC Yukon XL

Something you’re not wearing? shoes

Favorite store? Ann Taylor Loft and Pottery Barn

Your summer? Almost here. I cannot wait!

Like someone? I like my family. I like my friends. I like my blog readers (all 3.5 of you!).

Your favorite color? Pink

When is the last time you laughed? A few minutes ago.

Last time you cried? Last week.

Who will repost this? I have no idea. Just let me know so I can read it!!!


Kristen said...

That was so much fun to read!

I have to admit that I have the same goals that you do. Is it really too much to ask, that we go to the bathroom by ourselves??

And Eastern NC. Oh, how I picture that place the most beautiful in the world. Did you know I was a Nicholas Sparks fan, and every time I finish a book, I swear we are going to move to NC? Actually I think we are meeting up with some college friends to vacation on the Outer Banks next summer. Have you ever been?

Again, great post, and I too have been feeling light on material. Maybe I will "borrow" this as well! :-)

Cecily R said...

WAY fun to read!! I feel like I know you so much better now!

I love your goals...and I share them with you. Ah! To sleep through the night!!! :)

Wendi said...

Oh Kristen, move! We could be the best of friends. I love Nicholas Sparks too. He is my favorite. I have ALL his books on my shelf. I even have one that is signed by Nicholas himself!
The Outer Banks are great! A long trek from here, but fun!
Borrow away. Or Steal. I did.

Grammy Staffy said...

Wendi, do I raise your blog reader list from 3.5 to 4? You are such an entertaining writer I bet you have many who read but don't take time to comment. By the way...what is the web site hit counter? Is that really the number of people who look at your blog? WOW 9,292. How did you get that as part of your blog?

Grammy Staffy said...

p.s. My Claire Bear said to tell your Claire Bear "hi"

McMommy said...

Hey look, you have more than 3.5 blog readers!! :)

I loved learning more about you...and I may have to steal this myself!

Emy5 said...

That was fun to read. Nice car, and I'm with you on wanting a digital SLR.

just jamie said...

It's amazing how much we can learn from a little Speed Dating session like that. I may have to COPY that too. Good stuff.

(I have a Chase, too. Have I mentioned that?) :)

Anonymous said...

Love that you said you laughed just a few minutes ago. That says a lot! You are a happy camper!


brooke said...

Ohh my goodness Wendi, I just followed your link in this to the post about Tar. Too Funny! It’s a good thing for him he’s so sweet and cute, sounds like he’s a mess just like his momma Jynx.

Lisa @ Take90West said...

That was a great list! We have a few things in common. :)

duchess said...

Great list, it made me realize that we have a lot in common. I'm also from eastern NC, Rocky Mt. to be exact (don't live there anymore but still in NC) and love Nicholas Sparks (what female doesn't? I'm sure we have lots more in common but I don't really want to list it all in the comments section.
Stop by for a visit sometime & we'll chat more.

pb&j in a bowl said...

Great meme! I might have to steal it. . . Very interesting to read.

Amber said...

Hear, hear to having family closer. AT least yours are within driving distance.

And "Complete." I think that is all any of us could ever hope for....

LaskiGal said...

Came from Kristen's site! She spoke so highly of you I had to drop by!

I may have to steal this as well! Great meme!

Oh, and I feel for you on the loss of your father-in-law . . . mine passed away just before we found out we were pregnant (December 06--on my hubby's b-day). Still can't believe he's gone . . .

BTW, adorable family!

Grandma B said...

Love your blog...drop by mine sometime...mine is a little different from the run-of-the-mill...lots of family, poetry, music, thought,current events, etc..

Have a wonderful day....

carrie & troy keiser said...

Fun meme, I always enjoy getting to know someone better. Oh a new digital camera... I've been tossing around whether to go SLR or not... I'm actually thinking not, mostly because then I'd NEED to take a class just to turn it on! {joke :P } I'm pretty happy with Kodak's digitals as I can do a ton with them and take great pictures!

Pattie said...

Hi Wendi,
I'm new to this whole blogging thing and I have been spending WAY to much time on it. I tagged myself and have been trying to learn how to post it.
I really like your blog. What a cute family!
