10 Confessions...

I'm stealing this idea from my sister-in-law. I have worked the past 3 overnights and have nothing else exciting to post about, so I'm going to let you know 10 things about my that you may or may not know.

1. I Can't Wait To Have Kids.
I don't know 100% for sure what I want to do when I grow up, except I know I want to be a Mom. I think that is just about the best thing in the world. I even know what I'm going to name the kids- when we do finally have them. Andrew and I have discussed the topic quite often. Don't get all excited about us having them right away, though. We know we're not ready yet! For example, we argue about who has to walk the dog at 10pm- so we know it would be a disaster to have a child at this point. Oh- and as for the names- one of Andrew's sisters and her husband kept their baby's name secret until after she was born, and I think that's a neat idea. I don't want to hear people's comments on the names. If Andrew and I like them, that's all that matters. Plus, it was kind of exciting guessing what my niece was going to be named.

2. I Love Music
I don't mind a long ride, stuck in traffic as long as there are some good tunes on the radio. Andrew and I often have issues about this when we go somewhere. He likes to listen to the news on NPR, but I need to rock out otherwise I go crazy. It's not just any music, I have to be able to belt it out at the top of my lungs (can't wait for the family talent show tomorrow!)

3. Burger King =Guilty Pleasure

I know it's horrible for you and it makes my tummy grumbly. I understand all of that, but I love Burger King Cheese Burgers. I can't explain it.

4. I Like Pina Coladas And Getting Stuck In The Rain
Pina Coladas are yummy, and as long as the rain doesn't soak me on my way to work, it's fun.

5. My Life Revolves Around TV
It's sad, but true. I am a huge TV addict. I don't watch just anything, though. I do have a (long) list of favorites. For new shows, I can't miss Scrubs. The show cracks me up, plus I have a huge crush on Zach Braff. He's my friend on mysapce! I also love the show How I Met Your Mother. I feel like that show captivates my age group (and social circle) very well. That's another show that I watch and laugh the entire half hour. A new favorite is Army Wives. I know, I know... it's a Lifetime drama. But I'm sorry- that show is more addicting than crack. Even Andrew is hooked. I also look forward to my double feature or detective stories every Friday on USA. Monk (everyone's favorite OCD detective) and Psych (everyone's favorite fake Psychic detective agency). Then, even though I despise Reality TV, I can't miss So You Think You Can Dance and The Amazing Race. And I'm always up for a good game show. Aside from practically anything on GSN (especially Match Game), I like The Power of 10, Singing Bee, Don't Forget The Lyrics, 1 vs 100, and a classic... Family Feud. When all else fails, I know I can rely on re-runs to get me through a day. I can sit down and watch any episode of: Dawson's Creek, Roseanne, Mad About You, Seinfeld, Dharma & Greg, Still Standing, and many others.

6. My Goal Is To Be In Every State By The Time I'm 30
I only have 7 years left, but I'm a good part of the way there. Here's what's left on my list to visit: Vermont, Rhode Island, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska. Since I live in Massachusetts, I can knock off Vermont and Rhode Island in a weekend, so hopefully my list will soon be down to 9. And our next big vacation is going to be a cruise to Alaska. I think for the northern and northwestern states, we should plan a road trip.

7. My Favorite Ice Cream is Chocolate

Not to say that I don't enjoy many flavors of ice cream (Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Strawberry, Cotton Candy, and many,many more), but nothing beats chocolate. Yummy yummy in my tummy!

8. I Collect Bottle Tops

Mostly from beer bottles, but also from glass soda bottles. I plan to build a bar in my house, and the bar top is going to be made of bottle tops. We have tops from many interesting beers from small breweries, and some from soda tops that we collected in Morocco.

9. I Heart Katie Holmes

It goes way back to my Dawson's Creek high school days, but I have such a girl crush on Katie Holmes. Even before she became Mrs. Tom Cruise, I read every story about her in all the trashy magazines. I'm glad that the magazines have been writing nicer stories about her lately. While she was pregnant and right after she had Suri, the press was mean to her. They kept trying to make her look silly and wishing that her marriage would fail. I wish her the best in life. She looks so happy.

10. I'm Addicted To Tattoos
As anyone who has a tattoo will tell you, they are addicting. I got my first one on my 18th birthday, and my second one 3 days before my 19th birthday (See Happy Birthday to Me Post on 8/12/07). My most recent tattoo was done on 7/3/07 in honor of my Nana. Nana had a lot of Claddagh jewelry. This one is on my shoulder. It makes me feel like Nana's watching over me. I don't know what I'm going to get for my next one, only time will tell.
