Friend Makin’ Mondays:

15 Mar

When I first started blogging almost 2 years ago, I never thought I would make such strong friendships with people I would meet through blogging. That first summer I stumbled across a wonderful little get-together called Friend Makin’ Mondays. I joined in and after participating through the summer I got to know some wonderful people. Now I can’t imagine my life without those people in it. We also connected through FaceBook and I feel like I know them so well. Although we have not met in real life….yet.

Since I started hosting giveaways on Monday I have not been able to link up to FMM — but I really miss it. If you want to meet some really special, wonderful ladies, go over to Amber’s blog and join FMM. It is a fantastic way to meet new friends!!!

Today Amber is asking us to answer these questions:

I am…. Enjoying my Monday so far. The kids are home from school and I feel like I am getting back on schedule.
I think…. I am going to make homemade Mac & Cheese tonight. One of my kids’ faves.

I should… Go clean up my craft room.

I dream…. About having more time to get things done!!

I want…. The sun to melt all this snow away…

I know… I have wonderful friends. I am so blessed!

I don’t like…. Feeling like I have too much to do.
I smell… Popcorn. My kids love to make it after school for a snack.

I hear…. The sound of my kids playing with their friends. It makes me so happy.

I fear…. About so many things. Mostly that my children will be okay.
I search… Everywhere for those darn mismatched socks. Where do they go in the wash??

I miss…. My dad. It has almost been five years since he passed away. It seems like just yesterday that he was here…

I always… Miss my husband when he is gone. Right now he is in London and it’s so wild that it is bed time there while the sun is out here…

I crave…. Chips and salsa. Sounds so good right about now…

I remember… All the fun time we had on our trip last week. I am so glad we were able to get away together.

I need….. To get to bed earlier. Five hours of sleep is not enough…

I forget…. How fast the kids grow up. I was looking at pictures of Ella and now she is so tall!

I feel…. Really happy today. I got so much accomplished and I feel like this week is going to be great!

I can…. Make every moment count right now…

I can’t…. Waste my time worrying about things I can’t change.

I am happy…. To be with my kids and that they are healthy and happy.

I sing…. Nooooo, I’m not a singer…
I listen… I am loving Vampire Weekend
I shop….. I am hoping that Target gets some cute sandals in for Spring.
I eat…. I bought some more of those Jello Pudding Mousse cups. Yummy! I am thinking about how good it will taste when I eat it tonight…

I love….. FMM and checking in with friends! Go over to Amber’s to join in the fun!!!

    I'll meet you for chips and salsa and margaritas 🙂 Our snow is all gone now & the bulbs are popping up – I'm hoping to take pictures tomorrow if the rain stops! And no, 5 hours is not enough sleep (I KNEW you didn't sleep! Lol!) I would be a crabby mess on that little bit. I loved reading your list & learning a little more about you!

  18. Miller Racing Family March 16, 2010 at 2:08 am #

    Great list. There were so many that I could agree with.I am so craving the chips and salsa but they will have to wait until Miss Lila gets here. Until then I will enjoy the single serving of popcorn. Don't you just love Target. We don't have one in our town but I love to visit it on line or when I go to my docotors appointments I always make a Target run. Have a fabulous day!

  24. Laura March 16, 2010 at 3:03 am #

    That sounds so lovely! I have been on blogger for a little while but mostly just lurk. I only know one person who has a blog and with everyone else I feel kinda… awkward. I will have to check out the FMM. Thanks!

  25. Samantha March 16, 2010 at 3:05 am #

    I know where your socks go!!! The same place mine does… I think (no.. I KNOW..) my dryer eats them!!! LOL! I even make sure that both socks go in the wash.. and go in the dryer as well, but for some reason.. once they are dry…. there is always ONE missing!!!! GERRRR.. 🙂 Love your blog!!

  26. Kami March 16, 2010 at 3:57 am #

    Jen – I'm with you on the too little sleep part. I really have been trying to change. It's just so hard, because that's when I do my best blogging. 🙂

  27. Megan March 16, 2010 at 5:11 am #
