Go Sox!

Last Sunday we had a Redsox party, It was lots of fun, other than the score at the end. We all love the Redsox. I have to admit that I'll be a fan of just about any team if you take me to where they play, and get me a hat or something. And since Dave and Heather lived in Boston for about four years, we've all had the opportunity to go to Yawkee Way one time or another. And yes, we all have a Redsox hat, even the babies. (Reese has two.)
Last year, the day we both wore our matching hats was the day the Redsox won the Series, sigh not this year!
Reese quickly took advantage of the popcorn and other treats we had out.

The girls were hilarious, we have about 12 pics, and this is the only one with all three looking. Kennedy is a little concerned about the score of the game in this picture. For those of you who aren't following, that means the sox are out and better luck next year. The saddest part is I was looking forward to 4-7 more parties like this one! Oh well.

So Megan tagged me, forever ago, so here it is, six quirks about me:
unlike megan, I had no problem thinking of quirks, in fact I had a hard time narrowing it down to six. Some of them are more like my O.C.D. tendencies, and some of them are kind of embarrassing, one in particular my husband doesn't even  know about, (we won't be sharing that one.)

#1. I sleep with a mask on. Yes just like in the movies, but mine is not pink and fluffy, it's black. I have issues with any light at all or I can't go to sleep.

#2. I have to change my hair color at least once a month. Or else I get really bored with it. In fact I still get bored with it :)

#3. I have a super issue with change, (as in coins, pennies, etc.) In fact, up to a couple of years ago I absolutely would not touch it. To me it is just gross, and dirty. But I'll have you know that I don't let my issues rule my life any more, so I do touch change now, I just don't hold it in my hands for a long time. (I have to admit I freak out if it is somewhere unexpected, like on my bed. That's just uncalled for.)

#4. In movies if someone says a phone number or an address, I instantly start to memorize it. I repeat it over in my head. But I've been working on telling myself that it's not important, and making myself stop. (Like I said some of these are a little O.C.D.)

#5. I take forever to go to bed. (Jeremy can attest to this.) I just keep thinking of things I need to do, or have by me, and I keep getting back up.

#6. I like to have socks on at all times when I'm in the house. (Meaning, outside I can wear sandals, or be barefoot.) But when I come inside my feet get cold. And I can't fall asleep without socks on.

So if any of you are still reading, Kudos! And I promise I am still slightly normal, thanks Megan for helping me warn you all about what a freak I am. I don't know how to tag other people so everyone's off the hook. :)

I am so glad you did the tag because I think this tag is hilarious! I love your quirks, although I am glad they don't rule your life anymore ;) I am the same way at night, although now I can to to sleep quickly as long as I sit down for about 5 minutes each night and write a list of things to do the next day/that week and what is on my mind. And I wish I had the gumption to change my hair every month or even every five years for that matter. HELP!

Oh and Booooo Red Sox!
