11 Randoms

1. I love eating radishes.  It's like an apple and an onion had a baby.  I have two bunches in the fridge right now:).

2. Niamh was born on 8/8/2003 at 8:08am.  Consequently, her favorite number is-- you guessed it.  8.

3. I love that my little brother is all grown up...but still my little brother:). 

4. My dog eats socks.  No joke.  It's been a problem with her from the beginning.  Something about worn, stinky socks just appeals to her.  So gross.  (And yes, she always chucks them back up.  Lovely little mess for mama to clean up.)

9. Phil and the kids are outside playing a game of football right now.  

10. Philly is afraid of wind.  He doesn't like a windy day at all.  He just needs someone to hold onto when it starts to really whip him around...so he found the tallest kid in his class on Friday and hugged him during recess:).  (I don't think it went over real well, because the child told on him.  LOL.)

  12. 2 - I'm more of a chapstick kind of girl....but if I have to wear lipstick it's usually a pinky mauvy color that I put on very lightly.
    3 - www.lilblueboo.com - LOVE her site. Love her crafts, her tutorials, her creativity, and even more importantly, her inspiring joy.

    5 - I'm usually more of a quiet listener. Even with my best friends/husband. Unless it's something that I really enjoy, or know a lot about.
    8 - I currently have 2 tattoos...and I want at least two more. :) I even know what I want. I just need the money to be able to get them!
