I've Been Tagged...

My Joys:

1. My family. Seeing my boys' smiles and hearing them laugh always makes me feel good...and being married to my best friend is the coolest thing EVER!

2. Period Dramas - my favorite type of movies!!!! (i.e. Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, An Ideal Husband, etc....) I LOVE watching these, and can do so over and over and over without ever getting bored!

3. Reading - I love the escape from reality and jumping into an imaginary world that someone else has created...I even like reading non-fiction! I may not be a speed reader, but I am ALWAYS reading something!

My Fears:

1. That something terrible will happen to my kids...like being kidnapped/murdered/abused.

2. Spiders

3. The dark. I have a very active imagination...so thank goodness we have night lights all over our house!

My Current Obsessions:

1. Photography/Photoshop

2. The Twilight series - although I am not nearly as passionate as some out there, I am still STOKED for the movie to come out!

3. Exercising - ok well, maybe I'm not "obsessed" but it has become part of my normal routine, and for that I am very grateful! I've lost nearly 50 lbs since I had Drew! (Prenatal weight was 237, now I'm 190!) I'm keeping my fingers crossed that once I stop nursing I don't gain a ton of it back!

Surprising facts:

1. I love to do outdoor things - getting dirty/sweaty has never bothered me...however, I am married to a man that isn't quite into "roughing it" - so since we've been married, we haven't done much of ANYTHING of that sort. :( But, we have 3 boys, and I've always said that it would be really sad (but maybe a little cool?) if they learned the art of camping from their Mom and not their Dad... what do you think?

2. I have secretly wanted to have a pimped out car and be a street racer -- you know, a la "The Fast & The Furious?" -- when that movie came out I saw it in the theaters 6 times!

3. I played rugby in college. Painful at times, but very, very fun!!!! And there were lots of hot guys to meet at the tournaments!!!!!!!!!

A street racer?? REALLY?? This was cool, full of things I didn't know about you!

And Congrats on the weight loss - that is great! I've been thinking for a while that you were looking trim, should have said it to you in person but at least I've said it on your blog!

I LOVE those movies too! They are my favorite! I watch them ALL the time.
Congrats on the weight loss, You look awesome!
And I can't believe you saw the fast and furious 6 times in the theater! What a fun job that would be for you.

Hey, I want an invite to see all of your photography! What a great idea.
And I am coming 2 days before Thanksgiving and we're staying 10 whole days, I may regret that. I am open to schedule anytime.

I feel so bad about the loss to the DMB -- I know how much that band and it's members meant to you!
The tag lines were great -- I am posting you one of my memories of you and me: There was a day that I dressed you in a frilly pink dress and made you act like a model when we lived in Littleton. You were probably about 8 -- I know I still have pictures somewhere, or maybe you have them in your scrapbooks. Now it's your turn -- post it on my Joys and Memories gadget --

Love
Heather
