1.   My favorite quote is      oh man. I sure do love quotes. Other people are really good at saying things.  I have a hundred quotes I really like but I think this one is my all-time favorite: Beginnings are scary. Endings are usually sad, but it's what's in the middle that counts. So, when you find yourself at the beginning, just give hope a chance to float up. And it will. -Birdee Pruitt (Sandra Bullock) Hope Floats   .

2.  A bad habit I have is    biting my nail polish off and spitting it across the room if it starts chipping off. GROSS!!!   Also, tapping my teeth to the beat of a song. I'm pretty sure that's not awesome for my teeth.  .

3.  The first time I felt like a "grown up" was       When I went out to California by myself to welcome John home from Iraq right before we got married. I flew out to LA (eek!) alone, got shuttled to the rent a car place drove 3 hours into the desert in the wee hours of the morn' and found my hotel... ALONE.  This was pre-GPS, mind you. Add then I ventured onto a USMC base at 4:00 AM and had to answer all these anti terrorist questions from a Sergeant at the gate. Scary and VERY fun!  .

4.  Weekends are   the bomb diggity fresh. I love them. Even though I am a "stay at home wife/mom" and get to stay at home all week I totally look forward to spending time with John and seeing friends. Weekends are meant for fun. The end.    .

5.  When I was a child I wished my name was     Tiffany. I REALLY liked Tiffany the singer and wanted red hair. Now I am quite settled into Missy and my Brunette/Auburnishness  .

6.  I wish     it was spring   .

7.  A secret I have is       going to remain a secret     .

PS- check this sweetheart out! 
So sweet to see that little person moving around and a quickly beating heart.
It measured exactly right and had a heart rate of 160 (John says it was 167). I think we were both too excited and overwhelmed to remember correctly :) Either way, it has a good little heart. I already know it.
{FYI: you are looking at it's spine and the head is to the left and it's sweet little hiney is on the right with a tiny baby arm sticking out on top.}
