10 Things - I'm a Copycat :)

I decided to copycat my 2 friends & do a "10 Things" random list, because I have nothing else to blog about, and I do not want to blog about pregnancy again right now :)

1 - I have had basically the same hair style for years and don't plan on changing it any time soon.  Whenever I do change it, I can't figure out how to do it right and it never looks good.  Short and a-line it shall be until the end of time.

2 - I am 0% productive after 8:00 pm.  I believe that is the time to sit on the couch, and watch mindless TV for the next hour and a half or so with my husband.  He sits at the end of the couch, I lean up against him with my legs taking up the rest of the couch, he puts an arm across my chest, and I absentmindedly tickle it.  It's one of the most important and cherished parts of my day.

3 - I hate Dancing With the Stars.  I think it's completely lame.  Yet I watch it.  I don't know why - I think I just want to know what's going on.

4 - I don't like to take baths.  It's not really relaxing to me, and I feel like I'm soaking in my own filth.  I've probably taken less than 10 baths in my adult life......maybe I would feel differently if I had a jetted tub.  I don't know.

5 - As I get more & more pregnant, I withdraw more & more from people.  Because I get really annoyed at just about everything everyone does {except Bryan, luckily}.  It's ridiculous, really, and it's over things that normally wouldn't bother me at all.  I also lose my filter more & more, so the more I'm around people the greater the risk is I will either put my foot in my mouth or just completely offend someone.  If this has happened to you, sorry.  Don't take it personally.  For instance, I lost my temper & screamed at Bryan's friend Hyrum because he didn't like Pirates of the Caribbean {the second one}.  Like I said, it's ridiculous.

6 - I can't snap my fingers.  Or whistle.  I believe it's some sort of birth defect.

7 - I like to think I'm creative, but let's be honest.  I just steal other peoples' ideas most of the time :).  Thank you internet!

8 - I love to cook.  I'm not very good at it, and it usually takes a few times for a recipe to really turn out like it should.  But I really, truly do LOVE to cook, and I wish I could make elaborate meals every night for my family.  Unfortunately, I work every night until at least 6:00, so my poor husband is left to his own devices most of the time {unless I've decided to go the extra mile & either do something in the crock pot or put together something in advance that he can throw in the oven}.  And he does a really good job, bless his heart.

9 - I love to watch bad TV.  Like, REALLY bad TV.  Especially reality TV.  Real Housewives of wherever, Bethenny Ever After.  And then there's Hoarders and Intervention.  I love it all - there's something about "sneaking" into peoples' lives that is so fascinating to me.

10 - I'm slightly OCD about certain things.  You know how you have those lights that have 2 switches in 2 different places?  Like one at the top of the stairs and one at the bottom for the same light?  Well, I'm very particular about which switch needs to be the one to control said light.  If someone turns on the stair light using the switch at the top of the stairs, and then turns it off using the switch at the bottom, thus leaving the switch at the top of the stairs "up" even though the light is off, I will go downstairs just to flip that switch and "fix" it.  I'm crazy, I know.  My poor husband.

I hope you enjoyed this. 
Happy Wednesday!!

FINALLY!!! Someone who feels the same as me about baths!

The light switch thing cracks me up! you must have to fix it constantly!

Haha! Poor Hyrum! I actually ran into him at the airport on my way to San Diego.

Bryan may or may not have been a victim of the terrible nip slip. Hopefully he's blocked that from his memory! Terrible.

Hope you have a fantastic day!

I'm with you on DWTS. It drives me crazy, but I always end watching it. And I love bad reality shows (I'm obsessed with the Kardashians and their millions of shows!).

That's a funny list, I'm still laughing. I may have to copy all of you and do the same 10 things list too... although mine won't be as funny, I'm sure.

it's not copying! i intended for it to be a game with many players! glad you joined in the fun!

now, about those baths. with a jetted tub i am certain you would feel differently. also candles. and music. give it a chance!

and i hope i wasn't annoying the crap out of you all weekend. if so, let's just blame it on the fetus, yes?

love you.
