Tagged awhile ago...

So Melissa tagged me awhile ago but I was putting it off because I couldn't think of anything exciting to say about myself let alone 6 things! Besides that, anything I could think of revolved around food, which I guess is about right for me, so I guess that's what I'll write about.

1) I'm totally and completely addicted to ice and my addiction has rubbed off on my kids. I LOVE the ice from Sonic and for anyone wondering, it's $.22 to get a large cup of ice. The problem is I can't just get one anymore because both of my kids eat it all. We all even get several cups of crushed ice from the fridge each day. Another little habit of mine is to go to the drive through during Happy Hour and stock up on slushes. I keep them in my freezer and just get one out whenever a craving hits! Everyone at work thinks I'm crazy!
2) I love anything with peanut butter and chocolate...peanut butter chocolate ice cream from Baskin Robbins, peanut butter m&ms, and Reeses, especially the ones that come in different shapes for every holiday. Don't know why, but they taste better!

3) Since I sold my vinyl business and won't be working much longer, everyone is asking what my new hobby is going to be to stay busy...I think I'm going to take up cooking! Afterall, the Food Network is one of my favorite things to watch. I love to bake and try new recipes and I would love to learn to decorate cakes, cupcakes, and cookies too. My favorite new dessert that I can't stop thinking about is the pear cobbler from Pizzeria 712 that we had a few weeks ago. (Thanks for the double date Brian and Sarah! Good pick! Probably the best restaurant I have been to in Utah!)

(This cake is from Dippidee's website. They are one of my very favorite local bakeries. Isn't it awesome?!)

4) The last thing I can think about doesn't totally relate to food, but still to my senses. I LOVE the smell of cleaning products. This started at the end of my pregnancy with Tallan too, but I clean everything these days just so I can smell the cleaners. My favorite is bleach so I love it when any of us spill on white clothes so I can bleach the stain out, but I also really like the smell of the Kirkland powdered dishwasher detergent, so I run the dishwasher every night and just smell the detergent a little before I put it in. I know, I'm totally weird, but at least I don't eat it!

I think that's it! Now that everyone knows how totally strange I am, keep in mind that I am at the end of my pregnancy and most days really think I'm losing it anyway.

Hopefully if I get tagged after I have this baby, my obsessions will lean more towards exercise!

I now tag my sisters since they never post anything anymore!
