I'm (blank) because

I’m weird because…
I like my dogs better than most people.
I prefer to NOT cuddle when I sleep.
I'm not touchy-feely-huggy with anyone but my girls.
I like my showers so hot my skin is dark pink when I get out.
I can’t sleep with a top sheet.
I sing along to every song on the radio/iPod and I sing it like I mean it.
I spend way more on my girls clothes than I do on my own.
I gravitate to the ugliest Christmas trees in the lot. I feel bad for them  - like no one else will want it. So sad.
I can't go to bed if there are any dishes left in the sink, but if the house is a complete disaster otherwise, I'm cool.
I have a *major* nail polish addiction.

I’m a bad friend because…
I'm awful at returning voice mails.
I pretty much hate to talk on the phone - text or email me, people.
I don't like playdates.
I get my feelings hurt easily, and instead of telling my friend they hurt me I sit on it. Forever.
I’m a good friend because…
I am fiercely loyal.
I always stick up for my friends.
I like to surprise people with little gifts - gifts are my "love language"
I throw a pretty fun girl’s night.
I will do whatever I can to help a friend out.
I love my friends unconditionally.
I’m sad because…
I feel eaten up by mommy guilt over too many little things.
I let little things bother me, which then turn into big things.
I am hosting Christmas and certain people who will be here stress me out.
I'm totally getting sick. Crazy sore throat, headaches and tummy aches. Right before Thanksgiving. {sad trombone.}
Parks and Recreation is only on once a week.
I fed my children mac 'n cheese too many times this week. I need to get better about meal planning.
It doesn't feel like the holiday season to me

I’m happy because…
We're hosting Christmas this year and won't have to go anywhere!
Leila comes in my bed every morning and quietly watches cartoons until Gianna wakes up. I get a little extra sleep, and we get some good chat time, just the two of us.
Breaking Dawn came out. Now I just need to find time to see it!
I'm taking Leila on a "girl date" to see the new Muppets movie this week. I have fond memories of the Muppets (Fonzie is my favorite) and I'm excited to see the new movie with her.
Even at 28 I can count on my parents at anytime for anything. I had proof of this on Friday, at midnight.
I’m excited for…
Thanksgiving!  My brother and sister-in-law are hosting in their new home - half a mile from us.
Black Friday! My mom and I are among the crazies.
Feeling like it's the holiday season. I'm not there yet, but hopefully soon.
Our Elf on a Shelf, Patches to "arrive".
Christmas movies to start showing up on tv. Does anyone know if Elf or Love, Actually will be on soon?
Family time.

Awww such a sweet post! Even though our paths don't cross often enough, love to see you and those pretty little girls on here. :) I hope the holiday season brightens us up soon (I'm kinda in a funk as well) and if not, maybe we should all have a virtual Xmas movie marathon. I've got my copy of Love Actually all ready to go! :)
