Too long...

Sorry it's been so long without an update! Things have been crazy busy and I've been exhausted! One reason is that the first grading period came to a close, so I was busy finishing grading (boy did it bless me to see another teacher I really admire and respect hauling a huge bucket of journals back to school on Tuesday... she had obviously done some big grading over the long weekend!) and getting grades in the computer system. Report cards are supposed to go home Monday, so right now I'm in a delightful lull where I'm caught up on grading (!!!) and I don't have panicked parents scheduling conferences about report cards yet. ;)

Matt and I also went away over a long weekend I had this past weekend. It was a belated anniversary trip, and it was wonderful to get away together, rest, sleep, and just reflect on all God has taught us in our 3 years of marriage. :)

All that to say, I haven't done any crafting (gasp!). I am hoping to have a little Saturday morning sew date with a friend soon. And I'm working on getting the biohazard placement just right on the onesies. When I do, you will know (and they will be in my etsy shop!)!

So, sorry to keep you waiting, but for now you'll be waiting a little longer. I do however need to post some strange things about myself, because my dear friend Ruthie tagged me. If you're looking for crazy-delicious looking and gourmet recipes, or if you wonder just how cold it gets in Wisconsin :), you should definitely visit Ruthie's blog. Plus she's coming up on her 6 month wedding anniversary, which makes me smile. :) And while I'm at it, let me give an "early pre-birthday" shout-out to my birthday twin (Ruthie)! :)

Without further ado... 7 random things about me:

1. I really, really do not like mixing foods. And I have major texture issues with food.

2. And yet, I like dipping Fritos in ketchup as the occasional treat (Matt finally tried it and said, "I can't believe I'm not saying this is gross... it's actually good.").

3. I'm currently not really digging meat. Not much of a taste for it. If you have veggie recipes or recipes low on the meat content, send them my way! :)

4. The first time I got my hair cut in a salon I was a junior in high school (my mom would just trim it before then). And now, my husband usually cuts my hair! Now the last time I got it cut in a salon was before our wedding (eek! It could probably use a professional cut).

5. The first time I tried broccoli was last year when a friend made some cream of broccoli soup...and I liked it! I have tried to replicate it, but I was not even close. If you have a good recipe (I liked it being quite creamed due to the texture issues), pass it along! :)

6. I could never be President of the United States... not just because it would overwhelm me, but because it would be against the law! I was not born in the U.S. and am therefore disqualified.

7. Next week marks 5 years since my first date with my husband. He is/was also my first/only kiss, which is very sweet to my heart. :)

I'm supposed to tag 7 people, but most of you have already done this. So if you haven't and you want to, have at it! :) E, I don't think you've done it yet, but with your double job status, I'm not expecting it. ;)
