Emerging from the books...

I break from my studies to play the seven game. Here we go...

Seven things I want to do before I die:

-Go to Europe
-Buy a motorcycle
-Have a nice collection of books, many of which I've read
-Fall "head over feet" in love and get married
-Finish "The Lord of the Rings"
-Hike the Appalachian Trail
-Simply put, become a better person and child of God

Seven things I cannot do:

-Run (trust me, I've tried...Don't laugh dearest sis... :-) )
-Throw away my Chicago shirt
-Make machine gun noises
-Go to bed early (like, before 12:00)
-Not be very detail-oriented
-Stay warm - I'm always cold.

(And, I thought of this later...smoke)

Seven things that attracted me to my spouse (yadda, yadda...if I had one)

-His love of God and the PB church
-Can carry an intelligent conversation
-His kindness and thoughtfulness
-He is wise, and someone I respect
-I can be myself around him, and he is my best friend
-Holds a decent job that will support a family
-He loves my family and is dashingly handsome

(I agree with the Table...only seven??)

Seven things I say most often:

-That's interesting.
-Well...I mean...
-(Something, something) I think.
-What's up?

Seven books I love:

-The King James Bible
-The Chronicles of Narnia / Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
-The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom
-Matilda by Roald Dahl
-Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
-The Primitive Baptist Hymnal
-The Adventure of Tom Sawyer / Treasure Island (Can I squeeze 2 into 1?)

Seven movies I could watch over and over:

-Conspiracy Theory
-How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (I'm with ya Life's Better in the South)
-Star Wars
-Notting Hill
-Sense and Sensibility

Others: Armageddon, and (Table of Stone you'll get this) The Dirty Dozen, Indiana Jones.

Seven to Tag (although I think they have been by now...what can I say...I've had it lying around ready to's so overated.):

-Life is Better in the South
-Booty Mellicious
-Queen Shenaynay
-anyone else?

I love you peoples, and I can't wait to see you all soon, Lord willing.

Both of you need to just find that "dashingly handsome" man to fill the space of your Chicago shirt and the blankie...(cough cough, nudge nudge towards me)

Yeah, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, is a GREAT movie! I love Kate Hudson. Raising Helen is also a good Kate Hudson Movie.

Ya' know what! I think I want a motorcycle too! I also didn't think about it but I couldn't get rid of my squishy pillow!

We ladies should go buy a motorcycle and start our own club. Then, we could travel together. So much fun!
