Commenting Challenge

I just got back from the fireworks and am a little too wound up to sleep yet.  It was a good night though...I enjoyed dark chocolate covered almonds and didn't get one mosquito bite.  About a dozen friends and family members sat together in a grocery store parking lot, playing frisbee, lighting sparklers, and running around with glow sticks.

So with my insomnia (or hyperactivity from the chocolate and Diet Coke), I decided to get a head start on my commenting challenge.  Jenna over at Jenna's Journey put this together for the second time.  I hope to get a few new visitors so I will post some things about me.  (If you're a seasoned follower, you can skip this post if you like.  Or you can jump in on the commenting challenge.  It actually starts July 4.)

~ I am a SAHM mom of 4 kids, well 5 if you count my husband.  Some days, he's the most work.
~ I enjoy photography, reading, baking, singing, eating, and being lazy in my pajamas.
~ I do not like seafood, cigarette smoke, bad drivers, 2-faced people, or cleaning the bathtub.
~ I have lived on the same street my entire life.  When I got married, I packed up my stuff and carried it across the yard.  I enjoy living next door to my parents (one aunt on the other side, and another aunt two doors down.)
~ My best physical feature is my green eyes.  My worst is my flabby belly.
~ I really enjoy humor in life and am typically pretty calm.
~ I've been married for 15 years to a cute guy I started dating when I was only 16.
~ When I grow up (if ever), I hope to be still happily married, with 4 successful adult children, an established photographer, with lots of grandkids running around.  I would love to build the house of my dreams on a couple acres of land, but would be very content to stay here forever too.
~ I have an addiction to Chipotle Mexican Restaurant and Diet Coke.
~ I am running a 10K leg in a marathon in September and don't train as much as I should.  (It's because of the Chipotle and Diet Coke.)

My eyes are growing weary as the caffeine is wearing off.  So if you're visiting from the Commenting Challenge, I hope you stop by again.  I just love followers and comments!  Have a great 4th of July!

I also don't like all those things you mentioned! I grew up in New England and people think I'm weird that I don't like seafood. And you should never look at out tub...it really needs to be cleaned:)

I came by from the commenting challenge!

Oh my goodness- we have a lot in common! I WISH I was a sahm, I want to be a photographer, and my worst feature is my flab! lol!

Happy 4th! Hope you have a great day!

Hi! I'm stopping by from Jenna's. For a minute, I thought I was reading about myself... well until the part about the marathon (and kids). Ha ha.

Have a great 4th!

I'm a new follower from Jenna's. Your comment on my blog about running is really inspiring me to get off the couch ;)

I'm actually super jealous of the fact that you've lived on the same street all your life and have family near by. I wish I had family near by, let alone next door!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love this Commenting Challenge!! And the fact that I have 4 boys I REALLY LOVE your blog name.

I also love the fact you live on the same street growing up. So many people move these days (myself included) it's a rarity to live next door to your family. I think that's awesome!

Looking forward to reading more of your posts!
