Five Things

Hi everyone!  We made it through three days, two more to go!

Today is one of those days when I don’t really know what to post — I’m tired and don’t feel like thinking :)  I saw this on Natalie’s blog, so I thought I would partake.  Enjoy!

- Pay a lot of things forward <– vague, but trust me

I want to do this again -- a half with James


2. List five things you love about yourself.

- My humor (meaning my appreciation for good comedy, not necessarily my own funny-ness)

My childhood cat, Rae -- still doing well and still the sweetest thing ever

10.  Share five things you hope to do in 2013.

He wants a buddy!

That’s it for tonight, just something quick and fun!  Have a great one!


  1. ah love top chef and happy endings. I have to agree with you on those. have a great night!

  2. I love how all of your vacation spots are these exotic countries and then you’re like Maine. LOL

  3. Nicole says:

    Go to Greece! It’s amazing (Santorini).
    I vote yes for the 2nd dog :)

  4. A Packer’s fan wanting to meet Cruz, nice!
    Did you finish Season 2 of Homeland? I think I’m on episode 6.
    I think I might copy this idea for today :)

    • Laurie says:

      Haha, I’m not a Packers fan, I’m a Bears fan :) We always watch the Packers games though because James is a huge fan and because they are on tv (the Bears occasionally are). But I LOVE Cruz! And yes to Homeland — the last few episodes of the season are amazing!!

  5. We want to go to Ireland too! We’re actually tentatively planning to go there in 2014.

  6. i love this survey! your 5 things you hope to do in 2013 is a great list

  7. Maine was on my vacation list too! I think it must be absolutely beautiful. I believe I also wanted to play in the WNBA for awhile. Turns out I’m too short, and not particularly good at basketball ;)
