7 Things

Chris over at Celebrations at Home
has asked me to list 7 things that I love.
Here they are whether you want to know or not!

1. I LOVE my family! Hands down #1. Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to be a mom. My family makes me happier than anything I could ever imagine. I would be nothing without them!

2. My girlfriends. I have the best friends in the world. Whenever we get together we have so much fun and laugh all the time. People constantly come up to us and say "You guys are having way too much fun" and we do!

3. I love tea. And I love giving tea parties. I love to decorate the table, figure out the menu and shop for and arrange the flowers.

4. I love scouting. I am my daughter's Brownie Girl Scout leader and before I was married and had children of my own, I was a Girl Scout leader for 3 years. The girls in my first troop are now 23 years old.

I love that my son was in Cub Scouts and bridged to Boy Scouts and wants to earn his Eagle rank.

5. I love Halloween! It is my favorite holiday. I love the theater of it. Dressing up and pretending you are someone else. I love to decorate my house and pass out candy to the kids. 6. I LOVE Disneyland. More than that, I love Disneyland at Halloween. I could live there! We live an hour away and have season passes. When I turned 16, I really wanted to work there but the commute would have been terrible so I settled on working at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Spillikin Corners in the doll shop. We live 5 minutes away.

7. I love baseball! It started when my grandpa took 8mm film of Dodger Stadium being built in 1958. I have been bleeding Dodger Blue since birth. We try to attend several games a year and my kids are always members of the Blue Crew Fan Club. I'm so happy that my son has such a passion for baseball and that my husband and I are able to coach our kids.

This is Sheridan and I meeting Steve Garvey last May.

Well, there you have it! A few more things about me.

I will tag the following people...

The Stone Rabbit

Living Locurto

Little Shindigs

Hi Donna! Thanks for the thoughts about MIZZOU! :( They played very hard and kept us on the edge of our seats! They've been an incredible team this season---their coach, Mike Anderson, is amazing. NOW, I'm cheering for OK as they are playing NC, BUT should OK lose---I'm going with Mich. St!!! I'm not in a pot--I just love to watch the games.

That tag sounds like fun. I enjoyed reading your "7 things". You are so much fun---your family and friends---and little brownies--and the folks who are on the receiving end of your terrific parties--and now US, your blogging buddies, are all so lucky to have you in our lives!!

L, Dana
