Countdown to 30...My Favorites

It's been real and it's been fun (maybe even real fun), but the countdown is drawing to an end. I've reached the day (unscarred, I might add). If you missed the first 3 pieces of the countdown to 30 and want to check them out:
A trip down memory lane
A bit about me
Embarrassing moments

Now for a few of my "favorites"

25) I always tell RRL that he is "My favorite" and to KJ I say "My favorite little boy" and to Cbug "My favorite baby boy"

26) Favorite scriptures

-If any of you lacks wisdom he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. James 1:5

- Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23

- I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone Oh Lord make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8

27) Favorite vacations

- NYC in 1997 with my parents andd brothers

- Backpacking in Italy after 2000 Summer Abroad

- Honeymoon in Boston/Nantucket Dec 2001

- Backpacking in the Grand Canyon with RRL, Labor Day 2005

- Anna Maria Island, the last trip with both of my Grandmothers, Dec 2005

- Honduras in 2007 with my family and RRL's family

- NYC with RRL, Aug 2008

28) Favorite treats

- Any kind of cookie (especially varieties containing chocolate)

- For driving: "Mel's Music Memories with the Babe's" (from our college days!)

- For crazy fun: A mix CD that LNS sent me when I was in the hospital in 2004. What other CD can combine MC Hammer and Amy Grant?

30) Favorite age: 30! I'm love being a wife and a mommy. This really is one of the very best times of my life.

Happy Birthday!

When I turned 30, my sister said to me, "You know all of those women who look like they have it all together? They've got the kids, the carpool, everything down to a science. They're all in their 30s."

Welcome to the world of those of us who have it all together! (LOL!)
