My favorite thing to buy is:Anything on sale. I found an 89 oz jug of Tropicana Orange Juice for $1.50 instead of $6.00 because it was going to expire in 3 days. WOW! So we bought 4 and froze 3. That was on Monday. I still get excited when I think of it. I need help.

Someone or something that made me laugh this week was: Jeanette and I talking about Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.
My earliest memory is: I think I was just three, running around the house outside in a little dress, barefoot, in our new home. I remember feeling the wind on my face and laughing because I was so happy. I’m glad I remember that day. It still makes me smile.
My first paying job was: Babysitting and if that doesn’t count - Taco Bell. Woohoo!
The memory that still makes me laugh is: Zach giving Mike a single-deuce at the dinner table without even knowing what he was doing.

I'm assuming the fire question relates to before baby boy is born. :)

I laughed outloud remembering the "single-deuce".

We've got to play down the river. Ah!

Oh Karen. It makes me sad you don't have a crib, even though technically you don't need one for a few months. I keep thinking I ought to go to yard sales when I can and then I think, "No, she has a ton of clothes". Why did I not think about looking for a crib??

I love Tennessee and really wish we could go back but I don't think it'll be this year. Blah! I wish we could go with you guys sometime...I don't know if that's even going to be possible.

Dr. Quinn. Hahaha.

I want to go to a Cardinal game so bad.
