8 Things

I got tagged by Christie, relieving me from the task of trying to find something to write about since all I want to do is complain about my painful nose. The bridge of my nose is mysteriously swollen, feels like someone hit it, and it really hurts to move my face in any way. Oh wait, I wasn't going to complain. On to the meme...

8 TV Shows I love to watch:
1. Survivorman
2. Mythbusters
3. The Office
4. How Clean is Your House (BBC America)
5. Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares (ditto)
6. You are What You Eat (ditto)
7. Dirty Jobs
8. Dave Ramsey Show (no relation to Gordon Ramsay above)

8 Favorite Restaurants:
1. Tersiguel's (Super Splurge French)
2. Jordan's Steakhouse (Super Splurge Amazing Steaks)
3. Victoria Gastro Pub (New, kinda different and quite reasonable)
4. Bombay Grill (our fave sit-down Indian place)
5. La Tasca (Tapas overlooking Baltimore Harbor)
6. Eggspectation (My old reliable-I always find something I like there)
7. La Madelaine (Many fond memories and fun lunches with pals)
8. Akbar (our fave takeout Indian place)

8 Things That Happened Yesterday:

1. I made it through my 6 mile run in spite of waking up with a headache (no nose-ache yet)
2. Got rid of 5 or 6 boxes of utter junk from our storage unit
3. Watched Dan in Real Life while working on the above
4. Talked Sam into mowing the lawn
5. Threw the football with Evan
6. Made little Caprese Crostini after watching Giada DiLaurentis make them. They were really, really good and really, really easy.
7. Drove to the temple for a meeting, got there way too late because of traffic, felt sad because I didn't have my camera with me, sat and wrote in my journal for a few minutes and looked at the temple, glorious in the setting sun, then drove home.
8. Went to Evan' 8:30 pm soccer game and felt really cold for the first time this season.

8 Things I'm Looking Forward To:
1. The holidays
2. Paying off the cars and house
3. Getting letters from Chile
4. getting rid of the storage unit so I'll have that much more money available for #2
5. Running another half marathon next year
6. Going to England, then Europe in the next 3 years.
7. sitting around our little fireplace in the yard
8. Going to the cabin for my girls' weekend in January

2. Macbook Pro and separate monitor
3. Cabin in some fun spot for my family to gather to
4. This awesome pair of pants from the title9 catalog

  1. loved this... hey, you know Tori had some random swelling on the bridge of her nose we were told that it was an ear infection manifesting in her face.

  2. You are so adventerous. I've already lost my nerve to ski or surf. What do you mean you had to talk Sam into mowing the lawn? I'm sure he just volunteered.
    I think while you were sleeping, your hubby accidently smacked you in the face, so that's your nose is sore. Hope you feel better soon!

  3. You know lots of restaurants that I do not know. You want to decide what you want to be when you grow up besides SUPER WOMAN!!?? Well, good luck with that.

  4. We are TV and resturant twins!! I love BBC America and Tersiguels!! I'm gonna have to try that caprese crostini!:)
