Friday Five:I know it's late and Tag Your it.

This was supposed to be Thursday's post. As I was typing away in my comfy jammies thinking that I had all the time in the world, I happened to look up and it was 11:27am and I was supposed to be dressed and ready to pick up the OP for an appointment at 11:30. CRAP! Shut computer and run! Hence no post. Then Friday - BUSY ALL DAY. Hence no post. Saturday - Lady Di made an appearance Friday night and I wanted to give her some face time. Did you see? Her post? It's here. Or just scroll on down past this post and check it out.

Anyhow I deleted some of this post because some pertained to Mama Kat's WW. That's over.


I was tagged by Being Me at Mother Always.

First here are the five things I learned this week:

1. I learned what it felt like to slide into the middle of an intersection after NOT stopping at a stop sign. I LOVE ice.
2. That I must have the most popular bra size and shoe size because the store never has them in stock. So ANNOYING.
3. That "Gorp" is another word for trail mix. Did you know that?
4. That I can not turn my back on the Middle Princess - she is very sneaky these days.
5. I say "Crap" too much - The Youngest is walking around saying "cwap." I guess it could be worse.

Now for the tag:

Shows I like to Watch

The OP and I love Food Network. So our favorites are Chopped and The Best Thing I Ever Ate. I love to watch Olivia and Jacks Big Music Show with the MP and YP when I get the chance. With The Hubs it's all about: House, Criminal Minds, Bones, Grey's Anatomy, Brothers and Sisters, The Mentalist and Castle. I also like Private Practice and Desperate Housewives and So You Think You Can Dance. Thank heavens for TIVO. Usually we have enough stacked up for most of the off season.

8 things I look forward to:

- The Weekends
- Fall (my most favorite season)
- When the OP comes home from school.
- Alone time with The Hubs.
- Baking
- Conversations with good friends.
- Family vacations.

8 things that happened yesterday:
- The MP fed the YP dog food. (That is another post in itself - with pictures. Stay tuned)
- The phone rang off the hook.
- I crocheted the cutest hat and started another.
- I didn't workout to Jillian.
- I blogged.
- The MP emptied a whole container of Cous Cous on my bedroom floor, "making soup".
- Bath time occurred in the middle of the day. Not my favorite time.

My bra size is NEVER in stock either. Maddening!

YOur number 1 and 2 have happen to me in what you learned. I learned that letting a two year old dress themselves can be very interesting.

Thanks for the tag I just did last week.

Okay now I'm going to have to work on my answers! I Love stuff like this!

And the first "bad" word my son said was "Cwap" and all of a sudden he say "s-hit" and it comes out sounding like HIT but I don't know where he got that, I don't say it!
