seven times seven

Seven Things To Do Before I Die
1. Finish my master's degree
2. Take a cruise to Alaska
3. Get skinny
4. Hang out with my girlfriends on the Oregon Coast
5. Get all my scrapbooks caught up and/or finished
6. Pay off the debt
7. Buy a house and get a dog

Seven Things I Cannot Do
1. Drive a stick. I've tried. It wasn't pretty.
2. See without my glasses or contacts. I'm way blind.
3. Get skinny
4. Sing or talk in front of people (adults) without being a nervous wreck and a complete babbling idiot
5. Bake very good cookies - with the exception of the peanut butter kind with the Hershey's kiss in the middle
6. Ski, on water or snow
7. Parallel park - I'll just keep driving around the block until something opens up

Seven Things That Attract Me to...Blogging
1. It's a creative outlet - kind of like scrapbooking without the paper
2. It's free therapy
3. I like going back and reading what was happening in my life way back when
4. It keeps family and friends back home somewhat connected with what's going on
5. The giveaways - I've won several and the comments - go ahead, share a little love ;)
6. It makes me feel like I've found some new friends that I've got to check up on
7. I've learned a lot of different things - like how to make paper roses, yummy granola, and cool art projects for school, for instance

Seven Things I Say Most Often
1. Hey, Babe
2. All right, let's get crackin'
3. Come on, you guys, let's get busy! Chop-chop!

Aaaah! I was first on your list. I feel SO SPECIAL! As I was reading yours I was thinking... "yep, I'll be 'stealing' this one, too"... HA!

Loved reading your lists. I was actually shocked that you don't feel comfortable talking in front of adults. I would have guessed you to be way confident in that area, girl. However, every year I get all nervous and dry mouth when I am meeting the new parents so why should that have surprised me? lol
