Well, I'm up anyways

Since I was tagged twice on this one, and since this cold is keeping me awake in the wee hours of the night with the stuffiest nose EVER (and saline does NOTHING and I can't use the GOOD stuff to spray up there because, yeah, I'm pregnant), I thought I'd oblige (is that the word I'm looking for? I can't think straight at 3am) Joni and Tricia and answer these question-ion-ion-ions (said like Doug Heffernan -- I'm tired).

Crazy 8 tag.

Eight TV shows I watch:

1. The Office (all time fav)
2. Heroes
3. Jon and Kate Plus Eight (Jim HATES that one, and refuses to be in the same room while I'm viewing it. Don't ask me why he HATES that, but LOVES to watch cage fighting -- the big goof!)
4. Sesame Street (not by choice, but because I have a one-year-old that LOVES it!)
5. Ghost Hunters (yeah, I'm a big fat dork! Leave me alone.)
I just realized I've been staring blankly at the screen for a few minutes.
6. Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern
7. The Deadliest Catch
8. American Idol

Eight things I did yesterday....
1. Changed diapers
2. E-mailed people
3. Did laundry
4. Wondered why Tralee was not taking a nap even though she we SUPER tired. Hmmm, maybe she had a stuffy nose too.
5. Went to Subway to pick up a sub for Jim and I to share for dinner (I wasn't in the cooking mood)
6. Went to Enrichment
7. Filled my car up with gas
8. Came home to find that Jim had purchased us a kitchen table and four chairs at a thrift store that are really cool -- well, they will be once we paint them and reupholster the chairs! Also discovered that Jim did the dirty dishes for me! I was so impressed with him that I promised him things I can't type about.

Eight places I like to Eat.

1. Any (real) sushi joint
2. The crab leg buffet in Mesquite (LOVE SEAFOOD)
3. Primos Pizza
4. Anyplace that serves great steak
5. The King and I (it's a Thai place in Milwaukee, WI. They have the BEST Volcano Chicken -- yummy!! I usually have to go there and eat when I visit Milwaukee. They do take out, but the actual restaurant downtown Milwaukee is pretty cool, and is usually packed.)
6. Nana's House (This is actually my Nana's house also in Milwaukee, WI. She's the BEST cook and you never leave her home with an empty stomach)
7. Costa Vida (BETTER than Cafe Rio. . . oh yeah, I said it! Wanna fight?)
8. Rocky Rococo's Pizza (Also only found in Wisconsin. Man, I must be homesick for Wisconsin foods right now. Good thing I'm going there in a few weeks!)

Eight things I look forward to
1. Seeing Tralee when she wakes up in the morning (as long as it's not when she wakes up at 3am) or when she wakes up from a nap. I actually start to miss her when she sleeps for a long time. Don't get me wrong, when she goes down for a nap I think, "sweet release!" Then I start to miss her after a while.
2. When Jim walks through the door after work.
3. Going to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving (not the flying there part, just BEING there)
4. A trip to St. George to visit Jim's family there
5. Going out as a family
6. Finding out the sex of this baby I'm growing
7. Going on a date with my friend Audie to see Twilight opening night.
8. Spending time with family and friends

Eight things on my wish list
1. That Jim's business would be successful and all his hard work would pay off
2. That I could be like Samantha on Bewitched and snap my fingers to have a perfectly cleaned and organized home, a dinner steaming on the table, and be able to greet my husband at the door in a cute skirt and high heals while he complements me on how great the house, dinner, and I look and smell. All without him knowing it just took a simple "snap" or nose wiggle. That would be the life!!
3. A family vacation to any or all of this places: Ireland, Hawaii, Disney World, Japan
4. That I could decorate and remodel our home however my little heart desired without cost being an issue.
5. That after I have this baby all the baby weight from both pregnancies will just dissolve right there in the hospital and I'll look like I did on the day Jim and I were married. I was pretty hot then.
6. Penelope -- the movie. It's really cute, and I keep reminding Jim I want it for Christmas.
7. To be a perfect mother and teach Tralee all she needs to know to grow up and be a smart, loving, kind, giving, warm, open-minded individual that has a testimony of the Church and knows without a doubt how much her parents love and adore her.
8. That Jim and I, and our extended families will have happiness and success in our/their lives.

I Tag..... whoever.

That was funny. You must have been really tired. j/k. I think you're funny anyway.
I agree w/almost everything, except the tv shows and costa vida. I disagree. Cafe Rio is the BEST!

Okay, I have a question. How do I post my videos from youtube onto my blog w/o having to lead you there by a link like I did w/my last video? I can only see the facebook!
