Sometimes my mind is just so full that I have to let the thoughts spill over on to my blog. I hope it doesn't make too much of a mess.

-I'm happy that Spring has finally decided to show it's lazy self to us. Snow should only be allowed from November-January. Then it needs to be Springy from Feb-June, hot summertime from July-August, and then Fall from September-October. Yeah? Ok. Let's go tell Mrs. Nature.

- I love having my own house.

- I'm excited to start gardening. First I need to find some spare time. And with that time I hope I find a big pot of gold to help me pay for all of my expensive plants I want to buy.

- Kennedy is such a polite, sweet little girl. Unless she's talking to her mother and father. And then it's like some demon child has taken over her. But then the next minute she's cuddling next to me saying something that melts my heart like "You are the best mother. I just love you so, so, so much." Sometimes we call her Rhoda. Have you ever watched "The Bad Seed"? Rhoda. Except Kennedy doesn't kill people.

- Moab was fun. I want to go back. I'll post about it later. Or you can read about it on Sarah's blog until I find time to put pictures up.

- I should be working right now. Do I care? Meh.

- Justin will be done with school in, like, a week. Seriously I'm so excited I just might wet myself.

- Thank you for all your book suggestions. We are starting with "The Secret Life of Bees." And the rest will go on a list for future reads. I'm excited to finally have a reason to make time to delve into good books.

- I want to see "17 Again." I know Justin won't go. Anyone want to go see it with me?

- I have a crush on Zac Efron. So what if he's too young for me and unattainable? It makes me feel that much less guilty for lusting.

- Justin and I have this "thing" where we have crushes on certain celebrities and if those celebrities ever came up to us and asked us to run away with them- we could say yes. No strings attached. Justin's picks are Norah Jones, KT Tunstall and Meg Ryan. Oh- and he also loves Maggie Gyllenhaal. And I have too many to list.

- My baby girl is starting kindergarten in the fall. What happened to the last 5 years?

Ok. My mind is no longer overflowing with negligible thoughts. I have made room for more.

ok.... so justin's celebrity crushes need some help. I mean, meg ryan? has he seen the damage she has done to her face lately? She doesn't look human. okay she does. just more like an alien trying to impersonate a human. tell him to nix that one.

ps... i like random thoughts, probably because that is how my brain operates. Mostly i don't voice my thought because then people would be scared and never talk to me again.

Okay, so I will totally go see 17 Again with you!!!
As for the celeb crushes - Eric and I are exactly the same. If for whatever reason one of them came to the door and said "Run Away With Me." We totally would!
I am glad to hear I am not alone in some of these thoughts!

WOW! number three on the comments list? I feel so lucky! Love the random thoughts...Agreed on the seasons thing. It is about time! The movie, I want to see. I won't be crushed though if you end up going with out me, well maybe a little. but I know we have this traditions thing going where we only see eachother at wedding showers (I think that is about over) and baby showers. Hmmm maybe yours will be next ha ha-j/k and for crushes...well I almost feel guilty for even thinking it. I am a nutso. Anywho I hope you find your gold to plant your secret garden, or better yet a rich and famous crush you can run away with and plant till your hearts content. Enjoy!!!

Glad you started with "Secret Life.." you will love it. Then rent the movie.

We just saw "17 Again," Zac E is so cute he's beautiful. It was funnier than I thought it was going to be.

There is nothing like owning your own home, Erica will have that feeling by today or tomorrow.

Hey Kennedy sounds like kind of like Brad! LOL - I think all kids are like that. Because they're with us 24/7! at least they say cute things to us too! And as far as the celebrity crush thing goes, you should add Shannon Hale's new book The Actor and The Housewife ;). I read the ARC. It is a funny read about a situation stemming from a list like that. :)

you make me laugh : )

i might be willing to see 17 again as long as we say were going to a different movie and NEVER tell anyone we ever saw that movie. :)

p.s. - justin's list includes meg ryan? Really? Her face is so stiff from botox she has no expressions left! maybe the old meg ryan from when harry met sally or you've got mail would be okay.

Totally with you on the Zac Efron thing, he is also on my list and I would love to go see the movie with you!
