The Seven Things Meme

I was tagged for a fun meme by my bloggy friend Kim over at Endless Possibilities. I found her blog almost a year ago and have enjoyed getting to know her. Stop in to her blog and check her out--she also has a great sister site that makes me drool. You can see it here.

Here I go . . . .

7 Things I Want To Do Before I Die...

1. See my children as happy and healthy adults, with inquisitive minds, a respect for all living things and a desire to give back to the world.

2. Make sure my husband knows really and truly how much I love him.

3. Have a little house on a few acres with some donkeys, sheep and a garden.

4. Learn how to sew so I can make little quilts, aprons and window treatments out of vintage fabric remnants.

5. Write a children's book (or a few) about the adventures of Rascal, Gino, Trigger or Henry.

6. Be chosen as a Jeopardy contestant.

7. Learn how to play guitar well and play and sing with James Taylor

7 Things I Can Do...

1. Recite the Velveteen Rabbit by memory

2. Sing the "16 Counties of Maine" song

3. Cry on demand

4. Make a nice apple pie with crust from scratch

5. Sing anything from "The Sound of Music," "Annie," "Jesus Christ Superstar," "South Pacific" or about ten other musicals

6. Open mouth, insert foot {on a daily basis} (I had to borrow that from Kim)

7. Provide first-aid for an animal

7 Things I Can't Do...

1. Simple math

2. Sort-of-difficult math

3. Hard math

4. Figure out the time difference between EST and PST without counting out loud

5. My taxes (which my mom has always said is so easy that a dog could do it)

6. Convert a recipe from 6 servings to two, especially if eggs are involved

7. Provide first-aid to a human without fainting

7 Things That Attracted Me To My Hubby...

1. He picked on me constantly when we met, which reminded me that little boys in school always pick on the girls they like the most

2. He was super sweet with his niece

3. He could always make me laugh (usually at the expense of someone else)

4. I could usually beat him at Jeopardy

5. His mountain biking leg muscles

6. His love of all things related to tools, garages, cars, gadgets and fixing things

7. He has watched me cry on demand a million times and he still gets a kick out of it (accept when I try to use it on him)

7 Things I Say Most Often

1. "Can you mute the commercials?"

2. "Dude, are you kidding me?"

3. "Good Morning/Afternoon, this is Allison" (when my work line rings)

4. "Do you have to go potty?"

5. "Do you want to give James a bath, or do the dishes?"

6. "Get up, bum!"

7. "I can't FREAKIN' stand (insert whatever here)!"

7 Celebrity Crushes

1. Wentworth Miller from Prison Break

2. Scott Foley from The Unit

3. Bill Clinton

4. Grizzly Adams (a show from my childhood)

5. James Taylor

6. Steve from Blues Clues (I know, it's sick.)

7. Mike Holmes from Holmes on Homes (killer biceps AND Carhart overalls? Excuse me while I pass out!!!)

OK, YOU'RE it!

I may leave you after the Steve comment

Allison said...

OMG your avatar is HYSTERICAL. I'll be getting you those overalls we saw at Reny's next trip back to Maine!

Jerolyn said...

Kim said...

Bill Clinton?? Girl, I'm wondering about you now! ha

Allison said...

Well, let's be CLEAR, I put him on as an INTELLECTUAL celebrity crush. I am not interested in anything that Monica Lewinski participated in.

Kim said...

Good meme! I'll have to work on that one.

I can vouch for the 16 counties of Maine song - very impressive!
