Thanks to Amanda for tagging me! I like reading other people's tags, I don't necessarily like filling them out myself (which probably isn't obvious since this is the second post in a row that is a tag), but here we go.

What are the last three things you purchased?

- A zoo pass - which I immediately regretted and remembered why I only renew them every other year!
- A pair of shorts - I love designer jeans but really hate spending money on things that I know are going to be covered in cute chocolate hand prints and runny noses, so these fit perfectly and the price didn't make me sick to my stomach.
- A sweater for Dave - I only paid $.20! It was at Banana Republic, it was supposed to be $17 (can you tell I hate full price anything?), it rung up as $10.20, I had a $10 coupon from my banana card and viola - $.20.

What are the last three songs you downloaded?
- Viva la Vida, Coldplay - I like it ok
- Here We Stand, The Fratellis - love this and Costello Music, really fun to listen to
- No!, They Might Be Giants - I think I might like it more than my kids

What were the last three places you visited?
Like visit visit? A trip?
- the zoo
- Park City, a girls' trip without more than one girl
- ???, probably Texas

What are your three favorite movies?

Ooh, hard because I love all movies but not many to watch over and over

-Mansfield Park - I watch this when I am sick, I love it

-The Parent Trap - the original one

-Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? - I love this, makes me laugh each time, Dave totally doesn't

What are your three favorite possessions?

- a gold bracelet I wore when I was really little
- our house - great schools, great neighbors, great location
- ???? - I'll think about this

What three things can you not live without?

I, like Amanda, am going to assume husband and kids are a no-brainer.
- family and friends
- apparently, the Internet and cell phones (pretty much the same genre, right?)
- knowledge and education, although it has been in hiding for the last little while, I am sure I will find it

What would be your three wishes?

Obviously, I want the success and safety of my family, peace, love, unity and such, but let's be a little whimsical:
- Unlimited lifetime spending allotment at Anthropologie - think of all the money I would save if I was gifted all my wardrobe and housewares here?
- A healthy, well-toned body with minimal effort
- 80 degree temperatures all year long

What are three things you haven't done yet?
Just three?
- I haven't seen the new Batman movie (and although we are planning on going tonight, children with fevers may hinder that a bit) ****
- been to all the countries in the world I would like
- found my niche

What are your three favorite dishes?
- Chile Rellenos from Fiesta Mexicana
- Lamb Boti Kabob Masala
- garlic, basil, mozzarella and balsamic pizza

What three celebrities do you want to hang out with most?
- Ellen Degeneres - I love her, she is so funny
- Julia Roberts
- Bono - we could go on humanitarian missions all over the world, change politicians minds about where money should go, I could be a back up singer or just dry his brow in between sets...

Name three things that freak you out:
- deep water, the thought of drowning
- the thought of anything horrible and debilitating happening to my children
- the spider that I just flushed down the toilet, I often think that they will swim back up and get me in my sleep!

If you could describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
this is really hard, I think it really depends on the moment and am I describing what I am? who I am? how I feel about myself right now...
- curious
- impatient
- blessed

Name three unusual things you are good at:
- I also have a lot of knowledge (it is in there somewhere, I have to keep reminding myself), I know a little about a lot of things, not enough to be an expert, but enough to have a slightly educated opinion
- I am very dexterous with my toes, much to my family's annoyance
- I can remember phone numbers once I have dialed them two or three times, useless in most situations and takes up needed space in my brain

What are three things you are currently coveting?
- a remodeled home
- central air
- a larger vocabulary

Name three bloggers you are tagging:
- Linds
- Liz
- Jenny
- Lucy
- Paige
- Tiffany
and anyone else that reads this, seriously, let me know and I want to come and see!
**** I wrote this out before we went to see Batman, which we just got back from, a couple of observations:
Christian Bale is quite handsome. Heath Ledger was freaky good. No one under the age of 13 should see this show - sorry, just my opinion.

Nice. Very nice. Funny how we have very similar answers to a lot of things; you're a kindred spirit! I'm always amazed when you talk about how you hate to spend money on clothes because you always look darling and so pulled together.

Thanks for the tag Whitney, I'll get right on it. I was reading a blog the other day and the girl said she took her 5 YEAR OLD to see Batman!!!! You can imagine my horror!
