I AM … thankful.
I WANT… to make a batch of cookies, but will eat a salad instead.
I HAVE … a chipped toe nail.
I KEEP … secrets, Time Magazine articles, and a sugar stash.
I WISH I COULD … sleep for 12 hours straight.
I HATE … arrogance.
I FEAR … not saying I Love You enough.
I HEAR … JD’s sighs when I don’t get off the computer.
I DON’T THINK … I’ll be saying no to those cookies afterall.
I REGRET … flying American Airlines yesterday.
I LOVE … two-day old facial scruff, kisses on my forehead, and massages. And homemade cookies.
I AM NOT … going to live with regret.
I DANCE … like no one’s watching. Except they are. And it makes JD embarrassed.
I SING … so well. Like, I’m seriously going to blow everyone out of the water when I audition for American Idol. I’m THAT good.
I NEVER … keep my eyes open when I sneeze.
I RARELY … lose an argument.
I CRY WHEN I WATCH … Olympics commercials. Darn you, Visa!
I AM NOT ALWAYS … tactful.
I HATE THAT … tatertots are so deliciously horrific for my thighs.
I’M CONFUSED ABOUT … why Heidi and Spencer are still together.
I NEED … to always floss my teeth.
I SHOULD … go make a salad … then eat some cookies!

And because all of the requests I received about how Polo’s doing (okay, so I just got one request, but that’s enough for me!), here’s my happy little baby…

Thanks to Stacy Cross for the blog idea…

    Really cute post, I feel like I know you and my husband sighs when I don’t get off the computer too. Oh those cookies never make to cookies ’cause I can’t get past that oh-so-yummy dough. 🙂 Have a fabulous night!

    Are these the same knees from that other post?

    If so whoever it was that said that should be flogged… 😉

    Really, I’m not sure….but I think we might be related. I could have written that list. I’m so excited for your tour and your accomplishments. Have a cookie.
    No regrets, remember?

    Yay for a Polo sighting! He definitely has the look of a baby whose mother has been away. 😉

    Such an awesome post. It’s good to see Polo again!!

    I cry because of those Olympic commercials too! Especially the one about the runner who got injured and finished the race last in company of his father. Breaks my heart. Crack. Or about the gymnast landing that vault on one foot! The images are also delicious.

    J, eat the cookies, and the go running. It’s worth it to sweat.

    ANSWER: They want publicity. Why do I watch that show?! Don’t tell anyone.

    Polo is on the top of my list for cutest dog. I hope Helen doesn’t see this post, she’ll want her own Polo for sure.

    Just so you know, your knees are amazing, and I strive for mine to look as fabulous. Polo ain’t bad either.

    I was JUST having a conversation with someone yesterday that The Hills is every woman’s dirty little secret, her guilty pleasure. I laughed really hard when I read your post. I too am confused why those two are still together. The only answer, really, is it makes for fantastic, drama filled television.

    I am SO glad to hear that I am not the only one that has allowed puddles of tears well up in my eyes at those commericals. I am pretty sure everyone of them got me all teary eyed. Haha.

    Polo is seriously one of the cutest little things I have EVER seen! Darn, coveting is wrong, isn’t it?;-)

    We missed you last night in DC! But Allison gave a few of us a good recap on what you said since she had it memorized 🙂 Becker did a great job too! The whole night was inspirational! Hopefully we’ll have the chance to meet someday!

    Spencer and Heidi are still together because they make $65,000 per episode by being them. I’d date a loser for that much money too. P.S. cute toes. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing so openly, as always! My favorite is "I HEAR…JD’s sighs when I don’t get off the computer." I understand so well…I have heard the same sighs from my own sweet, patience husband time and time again! Life is always such a balancing act.
