So here it goes... the Crazy 8's Meme from Sandy & Adrienne, and after this I have some other tags to handle. We'll see how many I accomplish today.

8 Things I Am Passionate About:
  1. My children. Of course. They are my #1 goal in life, my pride and joy and my headaches as well. :D I love them to pieces and want to give them the BEST life possible!
  2. My family. My husband, Bryan, my parents, and all my other family members. Trying to spend time with them and make great memories enjoying one another.
  3. Enjoying life to the fullest. Seeing the cup half full. Making the best of every situation and going with the flow! (at least I'm really trying to do this)
  4. MADD. I have always had a major pet peeve about drunk drivers, not sure what fuels my rage and anger over this issue, other than of course the stupidity of it all, and how many lives drunk drivers take all the time.
  5. Photography. I'm not a professional by any means, and I don't even possess any kind of natural talent, but I love pictures. I take a million at a time and just can't get enough of it.
  6. My friends. I have the BEST friends in the world... they love me and put up with me. I would go to the ends of the earth for them, and I know that they would do the same.
  7. Stamping and scrap booking, crafty things. I also love doing crafty things with my kids. They make some of the greatest things.
  8. NAP time!! I love it! Can't get enough of it!!

8 Things I Want To Do Before I Die:

  3. See my grandchildren, if I'm blessed with them.
  4. Take my children on amazing family vacations and show them parts of the world.

Dude...shout is THE BEST for carpets. Honestly, though...I am the QUEEN of stain removal. Really, it's a gift. Blueberries? Conquered in under a minute. :)

I would be thrilled to be rolled!

I love your list of books, thats pretty much what mine would look like. I love that having a 2 and 4 year old means that most of the books we read are only like 30 pages.

Adrienne said...

Great list! Thanks for playing along. I especially love the list of things you listen to over and over.

Have a great day!
