I'm not tagging anyone, but if you're so inclined, I'll read your 40 things!


  1. Love the phone thing---only in a house of boys!

  2. I laughed at the Ben 10 comment, am glad you have a new desk, applaud your vehemence about plastic,

    and now want some blue cheese.

  3. I hear you about the plastic. Scary.

  4. I love these things. It's like eavesdropping or speed dating(?, no firsthand experience though...) Maybe I'll tag along...
    Happy Easter by the wai!

  5. Ya know, I why didn't I know you Middle name was Kim?

  6. Yay! You did so good, too. Bike wrecks are the worst. There was a definite reason I had the nickname "Crash" during my year at Michigan State.

  7. Let's go to Greece!!!!! That's my dream destination too!

  8. Wow - 40? That's a lot of thinking. It is spring break, and my brain is on vacation.
    Plastic? How is it that our society ever thought this was a good idea? (and I'm NOT blaming Dustin Hoffman)

  9. More fun to read yours than to write my own - I "sew" love the glue gun ;) very clever.

  10. I also love love the name Edward, and not because of the creepy looking vampire. (I'm Team Jacob in terms of hot-ness).

    I also LOVE the sound of Eddie V....but Farmer's not a fan. I think it's the perfect name for an athlete, right?

    like our kids will be athletes...short, skinny, braces and glasses....his genetics are chalking him up for failure. :)


Spill it, reader.
