Four Things

(Haven't had much to blog about this week so I stole this from Facebook.)

Four jobs I have had in my life:
  1. Janitor. Most relaxing job of all time.
  2. Lock Box Operator. Opened and sorted mail for a credit card company. Totally mind numbing.
  3. Office Manager. Loved the people and having my own little office to run.
  4. Freelance Artist. Funnest job, but to be successful at it requires more self-discipline than I have yet been able to muster up.

Four movies I've watched more than once:
  1. Lord of the Rings. There is nothing else like it.
  2. Shop Around the Corner. Heartwarming and funny, I love the quirky cast of characters.
  3. Pride & Prejudice (BBC, 1995). Actually does justice to the book, which is saying a lot.
  4. Frequency. Drama/Sci-Fi/Thriller. The relationship between father and son gets me every time.

Four places I have lived:
  1. West Dundee, IL. Perfect little town to grow up in.
  2. Grand Rapids, MI. Went to college there. So many fun memories.
  3. Elgin, IL. A town with a lot of history and character.
  4. Lombard, IL. The lilac village! Ross and I have loved living here and hope we can stay a long time.

Four places I have been:
  1. Washington, D.C. Really easy to get around and so much to see.
  2. Niagara Falls, ON, Canada. The falls were great, could have done without the rest of it.
  3. Raleigh, NC. Ross's home town. A beautiful place.
  4. Los Cabos, Mexico. The site of our honeymoon, I dream about going back all the time.

Four of your favorite foods:
  1. Salmon, any way but smoked.
  2. Tacos, especially at Chipotle.
  3. Bell peppers, preferably raw.
  4. Fettuccine Alfredo.

Four places I would rather be right now:

1, 2, 3 and 4. Somewhere with a beach, a sunny sky, and a temperature over 65*.

Four things I am looking forward to this year:
  1. Gardening. I especially want to create a vegetable garden.
  2. Taking a little vacation with the hubby. Nothing fancy, maybe South Haven.
  3. Harry Potter (yeah, I'll admit it.)
  4. Trying to start a family.

Four TV shows that I watch:
  1. Lost
  2. Battlestar Galactica
  3. The Office
  4. Friday Night Lights

I hope your little plans survive the cold night.
I really liked the pictures of Piper catching some rays.
