    6 Funny things about Keli

    I got this idea from Brittany, thanks Googie. I thought it would give my reader(s) some insight into my quirks and off-beat personality.

    1. I'm an internet junkie. Most of you know this, but I think I have a problem. I love to find things that I want in retail stores, then come home and research the heck out of it, until I can find it half price with free shipping. I love free shipping. For example, I found black leather knee high boots in San Francisco at DSW for 38.00. Good price, right? Well, I decided I wanted brown ones just like them, but there are no DSW's here, and they don't have an internet store (I know, I thought that was strange too). So I went a-looking. And I found them for 20.00 and free shipping! Boscov's.com. Check it out. They are my pride and joy, and I tell everyone how much I paid. It's so tacky, but that's me. I also love blogging, internet games, and looking for good deals on vacations. It's sick, really.

    2. I'm addicted to celebrity trash magazines. Every time I go to the store, I find at least two of them in my cart. I have no idea how they get there. I started out by justifying it saying that I had to keep up with the gossip so my clients wouldn't think I was out of it. And it just snowballed from there. Anything about Brangelina, TomKat, or (gulp) Brittany, and it's like a train wreck. I just can't look away, even though I need to. I just love to see "Who wore it best" and "Celebrities- they're just like us". I kind of envy Bonnie, she lives in Malibu, and I hear that's where all the celebrity sightings are. Although I'm sure they're not nearly as glamorous in person. A little airbrushing goes a long way. But alas, I've succumbed to their marketing. I'm a sheep. Baaa.

    3. I'm not a morning person. I don't like waking up before 8:00 AM. It's just not me. I like to stay up late, and sleep in. I've been lucky til now because my kids are good sleepers and they'll sleep til 10 if I let them. I don't let them as often as I'd like to. We have 11:00 church, and that's just perfect for me. I can sleep in, and still make it to church on time (usually). But school has been another thing. Emma has to be at the bus at 8:25, so I can only sleep til 7:45. Arrrgh, those 15 minutes would sure take the edge off. I can't count how many times I've crawled back into bed to cuddle with Maggie and fallen back asleep while she watches cartoons. I'm a horrible mother.

    4. I can't remember the last time I had an actual vegetable. I drink V8 juice, which has vegetables in it, but a solid, chewy, unprocessed vegetable hasn't crossed these lips in at least of couple of days. In fact, I think it was Sunday at Mom's. We had corn on the cob. And I threw it up, so I don't think it counts. Note to self... Corn doesn't go down so well. My kids do better, because Sean feeds them on the nights I work. He's pretty good about getting their veggies in. Like I said, I'm a horrible mother.

    5. I really love my mini van. No, really. I do. I always swore I would never drive a mini van, but here I am. And I love it. I've tossed around the idea of selling it and getting a "cooler" car, but I just can't bear to part ways with it yet. Besides, it's paid for.

    6. I want to live in the country. We are thinking of buying a 10 acre plot of land in Herriman, and I'm very excited. I want to have alpacas and fainting goats. Yes, they faint. Well, not technically, they just fall over because their muscles go rigid. They're really called myotonic goats. They're sooo cute. And I seriously love Alpacas. Which reminds me, I'll be visiting an Alpaca farm tomorrow so the girls can see just how cute they are. So, if this land thing goes through, then I'll be moving from the city, with very little yard that is cared for by gardeners, to a huge farm with goats and alpacas. Wow, what a change.


    So there you have it. 6 funny things about me. That is all. Carry on.

    I am glad to hear that someone went back to bed after their kids went to school. Last year, I would get up at 6:50 and get McKay ready for school. I would take her, come back and go to bed til it was almost time to pick her up from Kindergarten. I always thought I must be the only parent who does that. My kids loved to sleep in too!

    That all changed this year. It's not so bad though. They go to bed at 8 pm and get up at 730 am.

    OK, both of you quit complaining. My kids have to get up at 6ish to get ready for school. THey would be able to sleep a little longer, but they are slow in the morning. I shouldn't complain too much either, cuz Mike usually gets them ready while I sleep, but I do have to get up sometimes. (Like this week and next when he is out of town)

    Once the kids are gone though, it's right back to bed with Dora and Blue on my TV and the doors locked so Alex can't get out. Unfortunately he can now unlock the doors. Any ideas for sleep now?

    Oooh, 6 ish sucks. I'm rarely up that early unless it's to golf or something fun like that. And even then I hate it. I don't know what to tell you about the locks, try one up on the top, maybe? Good luck with that. How's it going with michelle?

    Britt said...

    I love celebrity trash magazines, too. I have had to fight of my addiction by swearing only to read them when I fly and when I get my hair done.

    I make up for it by watching Extra and Access Hollywood and by reading online.

    We are sick, sick people, Keli!

    Bonny Brae said...

    hey keli - i saw britney a few days ago. i was driving out the gates of the community where she lives, she was driving in. thought you'd like that brush with fame.

    Min said...

    Bonny was that the day her son was facing forward in his carseat?

    I too spend way to much time watching Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight and Extra. I don't read too many of the magazines, but Mike gets Entertainment Weekly so I read that one, and I read all the headlines while standing in the line at the grocery store. If it's a really long line or I'm waiting for a Rx then I will flip through and read the stuff that looks interesting.

    Oooh, Bonny, I'm totally jealous. I can't stand Brittany, but you just gotta love the drama.
