  4. Eating the veggies that are growing in the garden
  5. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
  6. Running my 3rd Half Marathon in July, Napa to Sonoma. Running and wine, what's not to love?

MCM Mama said...

What? You don't want to run your first marathon pregnant? ;o) The half in Napa sounds like fun.

Thanks for the tag. I must have anticipated it, ;o) Come out to DC for a race and I'll be happy to tell yo my real name AND run with you.

Mel-2nd Chances said...

LOL @ MCM Mama, no pressure right? I'd love to travel to all those places too :)

Aron said...

YAY love these posts! Napa will be soooo fun!

joyRuN said...

Napa does sound fantastic. That's on my to-do list for sure!

And travel - LOVE to travel. Get that in before kids, because it becomes a logistical nightmare afterwards :)

I really like Trauma: lIfe in teh ER too! However, I have to watch it by myself since it makes Matt feel sick!

Lindsay said...

i enjoyed all the 'random' things. does emmy have a home lined up at last? if not, hope she finds a good home soon of course! i wish i could do all the wish/wants too. the lottery would be extra nice. good luck ;)

Jess said...

I always love to learn more about everyone with these!

Carolina John said...

thanks for the tag! have some babies why doncha? charleston is a good place to raise kids.

actually, once you get pregnant you will really want to be closer to your mother. kelley's mom stayed with us for 6 weeks after eacy kid was born, and she just lives outside of columbia (in prosperity on lake murray). but you will absolutely need to have someone to dump the kids off with. my folks are here in greenville, and they babysit some but not as often as we would like.

Adam said...

What part of AR?

Chic Runner said...

posted! Thanks for the tag :)

Marlene said...

Oooh, thanks for the tag! It may take me a few days, but I *will* participate. :)

I'm with you on putting off babies to run races! LOL!

Have a great weekend!

I wish we could garden here! I love fresh veggies, expecially tomatoes and green beans. Oh man.

I cannot wait to hear about #6 and #7. I need to get more on my schedule like you!

Brian said...

Heyo! I got tagged, I wont let you down, haha. fish tacos and hoegarden, does it get any better?

Alisa said...

I contemplated Napa to Sonoma, I love wine country. I'm from NorCal so any excuse to go back is great.

I feel the same way about your first #8, while I'm not super excited to have babies (my hubs is), too many #6's and #7's (and for me Tri's) I want to do before I start.
