Five people to tag: Kim, Beth, Jen, Shelli, and Megan

What were you doing 10 years ago?
Wow. 10 years ago, I was going through a breakup with my ex in Charlotte, NC. We were engaged and called off the July '97 wedding in March of that year, and then broke up for good at the end of May/beginning of June '97. I discovered he was cheating on me with someone he worked with. He and that girl are now married.

What were you doing 1 year ago?
Obsessing about my post-baby weight, planning a birthday party for Middle...pretty much the same things I'm doing now.

Five Snacks You Enjoy:
1. Cape Cod brand Sea Salt & Vinegar potato chips
2. M&Ms
3. Starburst jellybeans
4. Smartfood popcorn
5. Fresh watermelon in season (see? I can be healthy when I want to...)

Five Songs That You Know All The Lyrics To:
1. The end song on Thomas the Train on PBS
2. Pour Some Sugar On Me
3. Only the Good Die Young
4. Star Spangled Banner
5. We Are the Dinosaurs by Laurie Berkner
(There are lots...but these were the first 5 random ones that popped into my head!)

Five Things You Would Do If You Were a Millionaire:
1. Pay for the boyz' educations
2. Invest it
3. Buy a new house
That's it. Only 3 for me. ALLRIGHT! Maybe 4.
4. Shop

Five bad habits:
1. Nail biting
2. Gray hair pulling
3. Snoring, apparently
4. Eating when I'm bored
5. Being wishy-washy

Five Things You Like To Do:
1. Snuggle with the boyz after their baths (nothing beats that freshly shampooed, clean and pj'ed end of day smell.)
2. Have quality family time with just the 5 of us when everyone is content in that moment and no one needs anything and Mommy can just sit and soak it all in...
3. Read novels
4. Blog and read blogs
5. Shop

Five Things You Would Never Wear Again:
1. A bikini (*sob*)
2. Jeans with zippers or bows on the ankles
3. This
4. Maternity clothes--wahoo!
5. Anything florescent or tie-dyed

Five Favorite Toys:
1. My new DVR! We finally got it.
2. The train table. Keeps Middle and Baby occupied. Except for the times Baby breaks the track, Middle whines/cries, tries to fix it himself, whines/cries some more, shoves Baby for breaking track, Baby bites Middle, Middle hits Baby, they both cry....uhh...scratch that...maybe not so much a favorite.
3. My washer/dryer. Do they count?
4. This. Just kidding.
5. My computer

Riveting, aren't I?

Ooh, I thought I was tagged there for a minute. I was getting my answers all ready and everything. Nope. Burned!

Your washer and dryer totally count as toys. And gray hair pulling is a really bad habit that I've taken up, as well. It's just so tempting!

I know the words to #3 and #5 too. That Laurie Berkner song is one of our all-time favorites.

And I love me some Cape Cod salt-and-vinegar chips. In fact, my mouth is watering as I write this...

Funny. I experienced a bad, bad break-up over a woman to whom my ex is now married.

I'll tell you, though: there is nothing better that could have happened to me than getting out of that relationship with him, though I didn't know it at the time.

Great meme! Wow...the way your boys play with the train table sounds like the way my boys play with a little Thomas the Train starter set that we got Zander....Zander tries to play with it, Logan destroys the track, Zander whines to get the track set up again, Zander gets frustrated that he can't get the train on the track right (he's only 2, of course!), Logan starts chewing on the track, Zander wrenches track out of Logan's hands, Logan starts to scream.....on and on.....glad to know it's not just my boys that do that!

I just wanted to tell you how much I love your Blog. It's my new favorite find. LOVED the pic of the 3 boys in the tub...your post on that gave me a fit of giggles. I even linked it on my page.

If fact, I could relate to many of your posts...I'll be back often.

Great job.

Hi ITTOM (do you mind if I call you that ?).

I've seen you "around" on several blogs I frequent and have wanted to check you out for a while (wow did that sound stalkerish or what? oops certainly not my intention) and am just now getting the time!

Anyhoo, how appropo that I popped in for a meme post - what better way to get to "know" someone.
Glad I stopped by.

Love your list. Your snuggle with the boyz is a classic at my house, too. (Well, not with your boys, of course but with my kids!) The youngest must always come up to me towel-wrapped, I must sniff deeply and say, "Ahhhhhh. You smell de-light-ful!"

I love your lists! And I so know the Old Navy you were referring it... that little number is quite the eye catcher. Oh... and the jeans with zippers and bows! LOL!
Love your blog... and totally a member of the 3 boys club! :) Isn't it awesome!!!

MMMM, salt and vinegar chips!!!

I pluck my gray hairs too. I'd rather pluck than dye my hair. Hopefully, I'll only have a few gray hairs for the rest of my long life...I wouldn't want to be bald.
