to the Ultimate Blog Party, that is! It sounded like a great way to meet some new friends, especially since I've only ben blogging for a few weeks. Gotta build up my friend list over there, ya know!
Welcome to my blog, new friends! I am Carol, wife to Matt, mom to 3 wild & crazy boys (ages 8,6, and almost 4. That's their picture over on the right), and soon to be an aunt of hopefully a girl. Random people (you know, like strangers in the grocery store) always ask if I'm going to try for a girl. I've decided that it would be easier for my sis in law to have a kid (fortunately, this jived well with her life plan as well) and I could borrow it from time to time. I say "it" because she's only 17 weeks along so I still have a few days to wait until we find out. I hope it is a cooperative child during the ultrasound. And of course, I hope it's a girl. If not, I told her she'd have to send it back. Just kidding (I think).
I'm also mom to a goofy 95 pound chocolate lab who likes to think he is a lap dog. His name is Mr. Noodle (do not let your 3 year old name a dog). Here he is in a very rare bit of central NC snow which all melted within 4 hours of this picture being taken because-- I'm not kidding-- it got up to 60 degrees that afternoon! We also have a handful of fish, but they're not so easy to photograph.
Some of my favorite things are remodeling projects and sewing. I love to make things... any things, really, as long as they are pretty. I sell my designs on ebay and etsy. I love to pretend that I can afford a trip to Disney World, my favorite smells are freshly baked bread and cut grass, and in my free time I tutor middle and high school math & science. If you'd like to know anything else about me, please leave your question in the comments. If you're on blogspot, log in so I can visit your blog, too, and if not leave me a link.
