Your Tag's Stickin' Out

How about some random funny stuff? I'm tired, and I don't have anything brilliant to write, so thankfully, I've been tagged by April over at The Life of Me Plus Three. So, she took the guess work out of what I should post about today, and all I have to do is answer her fun questions. I hope something gives you a chuckle.

1. What is your funniest childhood story?

Well, I'm sure there are plenty, but the Wall of Boogers is probably up there toward the top of the list. When I was a tiny little kid (about 13 years old or so...just kidding! I was probably 3? I don't really know...) I picked my nose and put the boogers on the wall beside my bed, but I was a smart little cookie and put the boogers on the part of the wall that was covered by the mattress, convinced that no one would ever find them. Duh. We eventually moved and boom. There they were. Not just 5 or 6 - but a whooooole lotta boogers. The looks on my mom and dad's faces must have been priceless. I have no idea what possessed me to do such a weird thing, but I did it. My dad ended up telling my then future father-in-law about it at Easter dinner before my husband and I were even engaged. Fortunately, my husband still chose to marry me, in spite of my odd booger behavior as a child.

2. What would your dream dress look like if you could design it?

My wedding dress was my dream dress. A princess dress, if you will. Fitted top with spaghetti straps, poofy skirt. Cried when I tried it on because I knew it was THE DRESS. I don't have another dream dress. It was the wedding dress I always pictured in my head.

3. What weird habit does your hubby have?

No weird hubby stories on my blog. He's got immunity here. :)

4. How many cookbooks are in your kitchen?

Probably about 5 with a few random cooking magazines.

5. Granny panties or loyal Victoria Secret girl?

Vicky's Place . But only if I get the free coupon in the mail. Silly ladies - don't ever PAY for a pair of those undies - wait for the free coupon and then tick off the snooty sales girl when you refuse to use the other part of the coupon that says you get a whopping $10 off if you buy a $50 bra. No thanks. Give me my free underwear so I can be on my merry little way, thankyouverymuch. (Don't even get me started on Granny Panties)

6. My favorite memory from 2008 so far is...

Welcoming my baby girl into the world.

7. I secretly...

Well, I already told you I secretly have fake poops and secretly listen to hip hop music in my car. If you expect me to tell you that when I pumped every three hours for my daughter's first 2 months of life, that I ate cake every time I got up in the middle of the night (when it was readily available in my fridge - which was often), well - I'm just not sure you need to know that.

8. I could really go for...

8 hours of sleep.

9. We are going to have a big snow storm and you will find me...

Curled up on the couch with some hot chocolate. Perhaps reading a book or watching a fun movie. Now I wish it would snow.

10. I knew he was the one...

The day I was finally willing to fart in front of him. Ha ha ha! Ok, maybe that wasn't the defining moment, but it was an important milestone nonetheless.

Back to business as usual tomorrow...

The booger story is so funny. I couldn't really think of any funny kid stories that happened to me but had tons about my brothers. They are some crazy guys. So I put up a gross one that my family all still laughs about to this day.

Those were fun--but #1--Ewwwwww!!

I have immunity here? Is that just because you know I read it now? :)

But seriously, you could have described any one of my NiQuil binges... unintentional intoxication is always funny. Or maybe the time I broke the towel rack and fell out of the shower. Or maybe the... uhh... shut up, Dennis.
