    I was a Great Mom before I had kids.

  • purejoy

    8 things i like about winter.
    hmmm. i'd be hard pressed on that one since i'm not fond of the cold weather. but you really helped me see that i just need to change my focus.
    snuggling… mmmm
    not exactly something i'm crazy about when it's hot and sweaty out.

    great lists.

  • Ed Adams

    Thanks for NOT tagging me.

    I really mean that.

    I hate meme's.

    Although, yours was pretty good.

  • Quirkyloon

    You were great Mom before kids?

    Me too!

    Imagine that.

  • Daffy

    I don't think I have the stamina to make it through a posting of this meme myself….

    You did a fantastic job though! You rock!

  • Noelle

    you rocked my world with your "great mom before i had kids" quote. i love it!

  • Cara Smith

    I totally agree with you on the currently want/need list.

  • Concord Carpenter

    Not tonight????

  • Kate@And Then I Was a Mom

    Ooooh, I want a wife, too. There really should be a part of the marriage ceremony where they have you double-check your choice.

  • MiMi

    I am SOOO glad you watch Vampire Diaries. Cuz I have a post coming up one of these days about how stupid that show is…and WHY I LOOOOVE IT!!!! : )

    hmmm…I think i'll take a look around here….

    see what this "Erin" Mutha is all about! *smiles at you*

    HOpe you don't mind.


  • Mox

    Crap! Now I feel even lazier that I haven't done this thing yet! Kys said we didn't have to, but I insisted I would. And now I don't feel like it. I think I'd rather just whine about it. Is that okay?

    Thanks for the follow, Lady. Yoink. Now I follow you as well.

  • Helene

    DEXTER!!! I love that show!!! I can't wait for the new season to start. It gets better and better with each season!

    I missed your Vlog yesterday because I'm having problems again with my laptop. I keep nagging Tim to fix it so maybe by next year I'll be able to go back and watch the vlog.

  • meredith

    i love these lists!

    and i ABSOLUTELY LOVE morning call!! i like their beignets even better than cafe du monde's, though cafe du monde has a great atmosphere.

  • Christiejolu

    Great list! I especially liked the "Don't hide illegal substances where the kids can find them" LOL!

  • Monique-aka-Surferwife23

    Oh good. you put a wife on your list, too. I told Kys I would go halfsies with her on that wife because I hear they can be expensive. Maybe we could go 1/3's?

  • The girl with the flour in her hair

    We had a pot bellied pig growing up. Freddie used to sleep in the laundry room. I loved that pig. He was so cool. You should definitely get one. :)

  • Chocolate Covered Daydreams

    Some of my best friends may be people I haven't yet met, or people I just met.

    I LOVE that one!!! So true!

  • Alice in Wonderland

    I've been tagged twice lately, but then I forget about them! Far too many things to write!
    I just love your list!
    Popped over from Christiejo's site. now you have another follower too!

  • Matty

    As always Erin, you make me laugh. This isn't the first time I've heard a woman ask for a wife.

  • gayle

    Love your answers!!

  • Juliana

    I just got this and cannot wait to do it! It was so great to learn more about you!!!! Thank you for sharing. I am new to your blog!

  • ScoMan

    When I saw you watched True Blood I was like "Cool".. then I saw you watched Dexter and thought "Awesome!"

    I think watching Dexter takes people up to a whole nother level of cool in my book.

    And people keep liking restaurants I've never heard of.

    And alone time is the best.

  • sanjeet

    Love your lists!

    Work from home India

  • Secretia

    A massage today, another one tonite, one tomorrow, one tomorrow nite, and so forth…

    Make me happy.


  • Reluctant Housewife

    Fun! It's always interesting to read people's responses to memes. Gives a little window into their world.

  • Desert Rose

    New follower here! I've been meaning to come over from Lee's blog, but after I'm all done commenting I forget to do it…short term memory here! Awesome vlog the two of you did..had me rollin'! Feel free to stop by my blog!

  • JennyMac

    I cant let you get a lobotomy…how would you blog? LOL.

    Thanks for the tag!

  • JadeLD

    I did this the other day – although I think it got slightly changed along the way! It was good fun though but a lot of questions. Interesting to read the answers especially the words I use often or too often which was the question I answered.

  • Tracie

    I was a great mom before I had kids would be an awesome tagline!


    PS I just accidentally marked everything in my reader as read. I'm sure Lee is going to be happy.

  • Tattoos and Teething Rings

    I like your list- I could use a nanny and wife too. Life would be so much simpler.
