OK, OK, OK!!!!!!! I get it - I'm Tagged

I've now been tagged by Lori, Kerri, Lou, Holly and Corey to do this, so I guess I better just do it!!

I'll admit, this was hard for me to come up with. Not that I think I'm exceedingly normal, maybe just exceedingly boring..... So, no laughing at how dorky this is.

Share 7 strange/weird facts about yourself
Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and link their blog~Let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

1. If I go to bed with socks on because my feet were cold, I WILL wake up burning up hot in the middle of the night and have to rip those socks off.

2. I never left the state of Florida until I was in high school.

3. I never saw snow until I was in college.

4. I'd much rather run into a snake than a frog in the yard(assuming we're not talking poisonous snakes that is).

5. For years, I hated coffee, but coffee ice cream was always my favorite. I'm now addicted to coffee.

6. I'm totally squeamish about seeing blood in person(especially my own, I'm known to pass out), but I love watching gory real-life medical procedures and ER shows on TV.

7. Runny egg yolks gross me out. Seeing fried eggs or eggs over easy makes me want to gag.

This one seems to have made its rounds, so I'm not going to tag anyone. But, gee if you reading this and haven't done it yet, feel free!

Shameless Flirt

That is what Gabriella's shirt says and boy is it true! I saw the shirt and had to buy it for her. She loves to flirt whenever we are out. But, these days, she has to grab my hand and have me touch her face in order for her to do it. It's so cute.

And my favorite picture that I took today .........

Did I Mention My SBP Rocks????

Yeah, well, she does!!!!

I got another surprise in the mail today.

Some yummy Bath & Body Works Coconut lotion and shower gel(um, anyone that knows me can attest to my love of B&BW!!!) and the most adorable kitty cat frame. PERFECT! Since the frame hangs, I am going to hang it from one of the knobs on my desk so I can enjoy it often.

What's Cooking?

Gabriella was having fun with her kitchen today. She pulled her baby in her high chair over, moved her two chairs next to the baby and starting cooking.

How do you like your eggs?

She and Bing were having fun in some packing paper.

Blogger Buddy Meet-Up

Today, Gabriella and I went to Downtown Disney to meet up with Savannah and her mommy and daddy who are in town at Disney. Rich ran the full Disney marathon this past weekend - yahoooooo!!! The weather was pretty icky today, but we made the most of it.

Savannah was a sleepy girl(she didn't sleep until her usual noon) and so this is the only pic I got with everyone in it. I think they got a few pics of the girls, so I'll wait to hopefully get those.

I let Gabriella play a little outside of Lego World until she started running off. She was having fun playing peek-a-boo with Savannah's mommy.

Hmmmm, maybe she's on the other side of the wall.....

What Color is Yours?

Your Brain is Orange

Of all the brain types, yours is the quickest.
You are usually thinking a mile a minute, and you could be thinking about anything at all.
Your thoughts are often scattered and random - but they're also a lot of fun!

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about esoteric subjects, the meaning of life, and pop culture.

I will agree with all of it except the last part. I can't say I ponder much on esoteric subjects. But, man oh man does my mind go a mile a minute. That is why I have such insomnia.

How is it possible that my baby is 22 months old today??? My goodness. I am so not ready for her to be two already...... I even ordered her party supplies today. Ack...

Here are pictures from the last week or so.

Gabriella thought the pink and brown bow would look better on Bing than on her.

Pleaaaaaaaase Bing, let me put it in your hair. Don't you just love the look on his face???

She gathered up all her play hot dogs, put them in the pan and sat down to feast on them. Don't they look yummy? Now, I guarantee if they were real she wouldn't have anything to do them. She's on a meat strike these days. I have to hide any meat(or fish) in something like rice or applesauce to get her to eat it. I have no idea what happened, but one day she just refused to eat it. If I make her a grilled turkey and cheese, which used to be a favorite, she will pick the turkey out.

Gabriella is a girl on the move. I mean non-stop and that's no exaggeration. But, oddly enough, if Ferdy puts music videos on the computer, she is mesmerized. Nothing, but nothing captures her attention like this. No cartoon or children's show.... Her favorite? Old Beatles videos. She is her father's daughter. She will stand there and stare and then every so often, she dances for a bit and then goes back to her trance. She even grabs Ferdy's hand the minute he walks in the door after work and takes him back to that room because she wants him to put the videos on. The only problem? It's a total meltdown if you turn them off and take her out when it's time for dinner.

I got her this pair of sunglasses and she wore them around everywhere. She even wore them in the bath that night, but I didn't get a pic of that. I find it funny since she would have nothing to do with wearing sunglasses before. I hope this bodes well for her wearing them this spring/summer when we're outside.

She tried them upside-down for a change in the look.


I thought this picture was funny. She pulled up her chair to the window and just sat looking out.

I can cook better with my shades on too.

Here Bing, try them. I swear they make everything look better!

I forgot to post these pics from a couple of weekends ago at the park.
