Laura tagged me to reveal 8 random things about myself, so here goes:

1.) I hate tomatoes, but I love ketchup. It's true! I could eat ketchup with anything, but I can't STAND tomatoes. Loved 'em when I was pregnant, though - weird!

2.) I wanted to be a nun when I was little. I guess that changed when I had my first big crush in highschool, but my favorite movie as a little girl was The Song of Bernadette.

3.) I have to sleep with a pillow between my legs. It's been that way ever since I was pregnant with Hattie. Carrying 40 extra pounds just did a number on my back, I think, and now it hurts at night unless I put a pillow between my legs.

4.) I hate talking on the phone. Once in a while I get in a chatty mood, but generally, I don't like to be on the phone.

5.) In highschool and college I journaled every day. I probably have 20 journals filled with my thoughts and writings. I haven't journaled once since Sean and I got married 3 1/2 years ago. Well, I guess having a blog kind of counts as a journal, but it's mostly about Hattie and not me.

6.) I think everyone should read the following books: The Power of One, Angela's Ashes, The Road, and The Secret Life of Bees - my 4 favorite books! I also love The Blue Jay's Dance. I read it in college before I was a mother, but it made me want to be a mother even more!

7.) I hate scary movies. Will not see them. Hate them.

8.) I once had 11 warts on one thumb. I know it's gross, but it's true. Please don't judge me! I don't have them anymore. One morning, after years of various treatments that failed, I woke up, and they were gone.

I tag Christie, Laurel, Jamison, and Cheryl.

I JUST figured out that peeps can leave COMMENTS on BLOGS! I feel RETARDED! Anyway, I enjoyed going back and reading the sweet ones you left for me! I LOVE these pics of Hattie Ruth. I love her clothes and she is sooooooo beautiful. Her eyes remind me of Sean's as a baby! I love you!

Stephanie, we have a lot in common. I hate talking on the phone, journaled from middle-school on, and The Secret Life of Bees is one of the best books ever. Sorry to not have responded to the tag yet, I've been laboring and didn't realize I was on the list until Lindsay Newcomer mentioned it while she was visiting us at the hospital.

Thanks for your sweet words on our blog, they encouraged me before and after Isaac was born.

Ha ha! Jamison, I figured you've been a bit busy (wink). Your son is BEAUTIFUL! Can't wait to meet him!

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'"
