Allie said...

Yep, I will play!

Check out my post for tomorrow as I have pretty muched maxed out my computer time today by "ignoring" my kids.

Oh .. and I totally understand the having to eat despite suffering from horrible prego sickness! Had that with my son and scarily put on 55 lbs and had him 7 weeks early. Although it is tough to hear, don't worry about the weight gain as look at the precious reward that you get in the end. I should take my own advice though as my daughter in one month today and I looked into the mirror and just about puked. It still look 4 months prego and can't even start exercising yet due to the c-section. I had a moment of depression but got over it as soon as I heard my daughter grunting as she tried to pass a fart.

I love to play along. But people might think I love chick flick over action movies, especially my 3-year old. When my 3-year old sees me watching a chick flick movie, he goes, "Daddy's watching chick flick, Daddy's watching chick flick."

That was a fun one- and I was just thinking about What's Eating Gilbert Grape the other day... weird! I also fall asleep at Drive In movies! We hardly ever go and there's a drive in just minutes from our house!

If you're up for playing along, join my Photo Tag going on and post about the shoes you can't live without!
