Top 5

Top 5
as passed on by Steph

1. 5 things under $5 that I cannot live without:
*Light & Fluffy Smoothie from Smoothie King in lieu of lunch after workout
*Neutrogena under Eye Cream (Yes, Steph, I too have had since my mid-twenties, that same anti-wrinkle battle going on in my head-what has this youth obsessed culture done to us!)
*plain bagel from Panera
*(the absolute best kept secret for pampering feet) Dr. Scholl's deep healing overnight foot creme!

2. 5 Favorite Movies:
In no certain order because I love my absolute favorite movies.
*Sense & Sensibility
*It's a Wondeful Life
*Return to Me
*Lord of the Rings (cheating because, the title encompasses the whole trilogy)

3. 5 baby names I love:
*uh, Sophia

4. 5 songs I could listen to over and over:
*I'm not who I was (Brandon Heath)
*In this place (Coldplay)
*Crazy in Love (Beyonce)
*Best of what's around (Dave Matthews Band)
*In Your Eyes (Peter Gabriel)

5. 5 people who have influenced me in a positive way, although there are a lot more:
*It must be a given, but always my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ
*My wonderful David
*My mom
*My loving sister
*my dear friend Beth Hassell

6. 5 things that are always in my purse/diaper bag:
*besides the obvious, goldfish for Sophia (yeah, mommy sneaks a few)
*a play cellphone for Sophia
*Paper and Restaurant leftover Crayons
*change of clothes, because Sophia love her liquids
*Purse: tire gauge, you just never know

7. 5 Moments that have changed my life forever: (In order of occurence)
*Parent's divorce (the good and the bad and all the love that was a covering)
*Mom's remarriage and the good step-father that is still a part of my life
*Accepting Christ as an 18 yo
*Growing in Christ in college, being involved with Campus Crusade for Christ and learning that the Lord most certainly does lead us to Himself with "cords of human kindness with binds of love"
*Marrying a wonderful Godly man who loves the Lord, me and his girls, adding to that the miracle of the instant family with two sweet natured step-daughters and my most miraculous-Sophia Louisa

8. 5 obsessions I have now:
*planning our once in a lifetime(I hope not but we are going to certainly may the most of it) trip to France and Spain
*blogging (er, uh, actually, honestly reading others blogs and trying to be encouraging by commenting long-windedly)
*DVR, yeah, it rules, Commercial free since 2006
*I have got to confess this, because I enjoy the tight friendship/relationship stories minus the extreme Samantha explorations: I want to see Sex and the City the Movie and know what happens with Carrie and Big, and all.
*Jon & Kate plus 8

9. 5 places I would like to go: (like there's only 5...ha!)
*North Carolina

10. 5 appliances or kitchen tools I cannot live without:
*Our awesome gas stove
*Tea kettle
*Coffee maker
*uh, that being said, coffee grinder

Now because I am nosy I would love anyone to post their five and give me a heads up if they wouldn't mind sharing.
