This is post of a few different things! 3 posts in 1 day?! I know, I'm nuts!  I'm going to go ahead and call this one Potpourri - or Poperee as I like to spell it. :)

First I'd like to take a minute to share with you about my co-worker and friend, Ruth. She taught me how to knit, she was my favorite thing, and I love her! I wanted to brag about her new shop on Etsy! She is selling beautiful homemade Christmas ornaments. If you are looking for a different and meaningful kind of gift this Christmas, and one that will last a lifetime, please see her shop here :)

Second, I've been tagged by Amanda at Just an Average Girl and Sarah at This Writer's Journey in their lists of four. I highly suggest you check out their blogs, both are GREAT girls with fun blogs :) Now let me make this list, and check it twice:

1. Four shows that you watch:
- Gilmore Girls (on DVD of course since it's not on regularly anymore-tear)
- ANYTHING on the Food Network
- Glee
- Grey's Anatomy

2. Four things you are passionate about:
- Family
- My husband
- Helping others any way I can
- Being a positive light in someone's life. I try to make sure I always walk in the room the right way :)

3. Four phrases you say a lot:
- "Ohmylanta!"
- "Shut up..."
- "I love you :)"
- "That's fine."

4. Four things you've learned from the past:
- The one thing that will stay with you if you let it is your pride. Sometimes you've got to let it go, it might surprise you how much better you are without it.
- If I don't do the laundry today, there will be TWICE as much tomorrow.
- Love with all your heart, and don't ever let telling someone you love them pass you by.
- Everything happens for a reason. Word.

5. Four places you would like to go:

- Thought about Christmas gifts I still need to buy.

7. Four things you are looking forward to:

- Short term: Making sugar cookies with my sissy :) Hanner Bananner!
- Long term: Owning our own house... ah yes, that sounds wonderful.

8. Four things you love about Winter:

9. Four other great girls and blogs you should checkity check out:
Listen, I can't pick just four, I have so many great girls and blogs I follow, so if you are reading this and you have the time, would you include this fun little survey in your next blog and leave me a comment letting me know? I would love it :)

Third - if anyone asks what I want for Christmas, just tell them this dog, or one that looks just like it. That's all.
