8 Things

I was tagged by Kelly at The Lawrences and Christy at Confessions from an Impulsive Addict. Thanks guys!

Here's the deal, Mention the persons that tagged you. Complete the lists of 8's. Tag 8 of your wonderful blogging friends. Go tell them you have tagged them.

Here are my list of 8's......

8 Things I Look Forward To:

1. My birthday surprise from Jon. I have yet to find out anything other than we are going somewhere and I have to pack underwear, water, and almonds. (to understand my packing reference see here.) My birthday is next Saturday the 25th. I will be 26 years old!!!!

2. Eating at Vapiano Friday night! Love me some pasta and vino ;)

3. Not having to do the dishes Friday night because we are eating out!

4. Mexican fiesta tonight with homemade salsa and chicken tacos! YUM.

5. Buying some new workout pants!

6. Getting my hair colored by my fabulous hairstylist/hubby Jon! Check out the last color job he did :) (mind the post, it's super long.)

7. I am more than looking forward to our one year anniversary in June! 06/07/08! We are planning a trip to Italy!!

8. and my brother is coming again in May and I can't wait to see him.

8 Things I Did Yesterday:

1. I walked 5 miles through the park.

2. I cut my friend Sarah's hair.

3. Went grocery shopping and loaded up on some, somewhat healthy food.

4. Did the dishes........ my least favorite thing in the world.

5. Went to the grocery store a second time because I forgot to get hamburger buns!

6. Made buffalo/bison burgers for dinner!

7. Ate almost an entire bag of French Onion Sunchips by myself. (and I wonder why I can't lose weight.)

8. Drank some very good red wine with dinner.

8 Things I Wish I Could Do:

1. I wish I could lose 1 pound for every mile I walk/jog.

2. I wish I was like Samantha on Bewitched, could wiggle my nose and the house work would be done leaving the entire house immaculate. How can two people dirty a house so quickly is my question!?

3. I wish I could eat Mexican food every day and not gain weight, but actually lose it.

4. I wish I had a beach front home or home on a lake. Water is so relaxing.

5. I wish we had our own vineyard/vineyards that were already producing a good crop.

6. I wish I could play the piano! My mom can play. I always wanted to play Claire de Lune on the piano, although I don't think I could ever play like Claude Debussy.

7. I wish Germany had a Target. I miss that store on a daily basis.

8. I wish Jon and I could volunteer in Borneo, because that would be his dream come true. I would love to research and help save the Gibbons and other animals living there.

8 Shows I Watch:

Well being that we are in Germany and don't have a satellite at the moment we really don't watch Television shows.

We do however have several on DVD that we watch regularly like:

1. TRUE BLOOD!!! my favorite show
2. Entourage
3. Arrested Development
4. Family Guy (that we watch ALL OF THE TIME)
5. Seinfeld
6. Deadwood (That we borrowed from some friends)

I just got Dexter and Sopranos and definitely look forward to watching those.

So I guess that is 8!

We are mainly movie freaks. We watch movies almost every night. We just watched Bedtime Stories with Adam Sandler last night and I thought it was really cute. Of course I love Adam Sandler and any movie he is in.

Happy Thursday Everyone!!

We watch movies all the time too AND we just watched Bedtime Stories. I thought it was pretty cute.

Now what I wish? I wish I was closer so you could cut my hair. :)

Thanks for tagging me! I'll have to start working on my list.

P.S. Did my scarf come back to you? I'm afraid it might have gotten lost in the mail. :(
