7 things you may not know about me:

1. I have an obsession with rearranging our apartment.  And not just the centerpieces or in celebration of a new season or holiday!  Patrick is so sweet and willingly moves furniture back and forth.  I know by the time I find a perfect spot for everything, it will be time to move :)

2. We LOVE decorating for Christmas.  Some of our traditions while decorating are: play the incredible Amy Grant Christmas CD, watch It's a Wonderful Life (my pick) and Christmas Vacation (Patrick's pick), bake something christmasy, and take our time enjoying the few days it takes to decorate.

3.  I love Johnson's baby lotion.  The pink bottle is the Best!!  Oh and the smell of a freshly bathed baby lotioned with Johnson's powdery scent...heavenly

4. I have a goal list from freshman year of high school in a little notebook calendar.  I still refer to it and make a big deal when I get to check something off!

 5. I have a special love for the Spanish language.  I am far from fluent, but have always dreamed of teaching our kids Spanish, so I guess I better start studying.

 6. My dad would be disappointed if I didn't mention this next one :)  On a special trip with him to California, we ended up being extras in the movie Kicking and Screaming (with Will Ferrell)  It was such a fun experience!  So next time you watch that movie- look for me! (hint: I'm in a coffee shop scene and I'm a horrible actress!)

7. I get very frantic when I see treasures in other people's trash pile (although sometimes I get embarrassed and sneakily return at night).  I impulsively yell for Patrick to pull over just so I can take the broken chair home and add to the unfinished craft pile in the basement.  Hopefully one day they will make it on the blog!
