So, my great friend Shaina tagged me in her last post. Although I am still bitter about not winning her recipe book, I will do the tag. ;)
I am supposed to list 5 obsessions of mine and then tag 5 more people to do the same. hhhmmmmm
Let see here, I am totally doing this off the top of my head.
Obsession #1 A clean house (clutter free)
I CAN'T STAND clutter. So I guess you could call that an obsession. I am constantly picking up clutter all day long. Toys, clothes, papers, keys, ect. Some people tell me to just let the house get messy and clean it all up at the end of the day. Believe me, I wish I could do that, I really do, but I can't. I would completely loose my mind. When the house is clean and clutter free, I feel like I could fly!
Obsession #2 Interior Design
My house doesn't look like it...yet, but I love dreaming up my dream house and my dream furniture and my dream paint jobs in the kids rooms and my dream decor, ect. I have a notebook full of my ideas as well as pages and pages on Microsoft word full of pictures and different styles of decor. I have the house and decor all planned out, and it is adorable and so classic and nice looking. I am slowly collecting a rug here and a lamp there, a shelf here and a picture there. I am saving for the dining set and the couches and all the accent chairs. Waiting to own the home where we will paint the kids rooms and the house super cute. It will all come in time, but it is so fun to plan and look forward to.
Obsession #3 Working out, especially running.
I LOVE to run. It has been a truly difficult summer as far as not having enough blood or energy to run. I miss it terribly. There is nothing better to me than waking up in the early hours when the air is still crisp and blasting out a good 5 mile run. It is so wonderful. Training for a marathon is also so rewarding and so addicting. I love pushing the limits when it comes to physical stuff. Running truly is a deep obsession of mine. I can't get enough of it. Aside from running, I like any form of working out. Hiking, swimming, elliptical, sports, ect. I just love the feeling of working my body and feeling fit.
Holidays. I LOVE HOLIDAYS! I am definitely obsessed with them. I love decorating for them, partying during them and going all out. It is so much fun to me, especially with kids who soak it all up. I am slowly collecting decorations for each and every holiday. I can't wait to get into Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the winter Birthdays. Yippee! Yes, I am obsessed with Holidays.
Obsession #5 I am having a hard time deciding between licorice or a good book. I guess I will cheat and do both. I read and eat licorice at the same time anyway, so it works.
Lately, I can't seem to get enough licorice. It is so weird. There is absolutely no explanation. I eat licorice all day, and when I run out, my body goes nuts! I think about it all the time, and I just have to have it. We finally caved and bought the 5 pound bucket of red vines at Sam's Club yesterday. No twizzlers...blah! I hope it lasts through the next few days...seriously! Too weird. At least, it is a low cal. craving.
Good book...I am always hunting down a good book, especially a good series. Once I start, I can't stop. I will read a series in a crazy amount of time and then be so sad once it is over. I really am obsessed with reading.
So there you have it. In no particular order. I am obsessed.
I don't know who to tag. I guess I will tag Jeni Hogman, Deanna Poulsen, Darringtons, Hardy's and Jessica and Juliet Belnap.
oops, that is six. Oh well.
