I've been tagged!

Aimee from A day in the life of...tagged me. Here goes...
1. What is the one BIG goal you hope to accomplish this week? Finish last week's laundry and spend a little more time at Leenie's house ;-)
2. What is the one household chore you do NOT like to do? Ironing - when this pregnancy is over Leenie and I will implement the Margarita ironing idea we got from anther neighbor.
3. What would you buy if someone gave you $2,000.00? I'm wondering if this is supposed to be 2 million since Aimee had answered hers with buying a new car - what kind of new car can you buy with $2,000? So, I'd probably go on vacation with it - somewhere warm!
4. Describe yourself using one word. honest - I don't know???
5. What is the one saying or theme that you live by? I am a firm believer of what goes around comes around. I try to not do something that I wouldn't want done to me - yes there's times I fail miserable, but I said "I try"
6. What is the one household item you can NOT live without? Washing machine and dryer - I know it's two, but they go together. I remember living in the Chicago on the 3rd floor and lugging my laundry up and down the stairs and to the laundry mat on the next block - I am so glad I don't have to do that anymore - especailly in the snow!!
7. If you had one chance to go any where in the world where would you go? I'd love to go to Hawaii
8. List the one person you admire the most. I'm going to have to steal Aimee's answer. My mom! I can call her anytime day and night and talk to her about anything. She is such a strong person and has accomplished so much in her life. I'm amazed at the struggles that her and my dad went through in raising our family, but the two of them always got through it and never gave up. And she still spoils me. When I moved out of parents house my mom started a February box for me. Every February I get a box of presents delivered to my house. Inside the box is a wrapped gift for every day of the month of February and I open one gift every day. The gifts range from pajamas to cookie cutters to money to gift cards for manicures and pedicures. It's just the most awesome idea and I just love it. I can't wait to do the same for Olivia when she grows up and leaves the nest - you know, when she's 35!! Anyway, my mom is the greatest, always has been and always will be.
9. What is one thing people may not know about you? I saved a lot of money on my car insurance. Seriously? I can't stand to wear dress socks without shoes. If I have on any kind of socks other than white I have to take them off when I take my shoes off - unless I'm at someone else's house. My dad and one of my brothers are the same way, in fact they are a little worse...they wear white socks underneath their dress socks! No joke. And white socks annoy me if they aren't on exactly straight - like if they get turned around a little or hang off - it doesn't just bother me for it to be like this on my feet, but it bothers me to see it. I had to call someone out during small group because their socks were bothering me so bad that I couldn't concentrate on the lesson. We all have our thing, right? I can't be the only person with something this crazy.
O.K. - so now I tag...
Leenie and Megan, you're it!

O.K., so I said CAMERA not CAR! :) That's funny! I'd say I could get a decent camera for $2,000, don't ya think!?!?:)

And I for sure couldn't live without the washer and dryer either!

Thanks for playing along!
