My List of Sevens

I've been requested by The Queen Mama (what a cool blog name!) to do a List of Sevens. Here are mine:

Seven things to do before I die (not in order of importance):
1. Travel the world extensively (US, Italy, Spain, South Africa, India, Vietnam, China, the list is endless)
2. Have more children (either biological or adopted) and see them become happy, healthy adults.
3. Study yoga with Joan White to become a certified Iyengar yoga instructor.
4. Learn more foreign languages and use often (goes with #1).
5. See world peace in my time (it's a long shot, I know).
6. Grow old with my darling husband.
7. Spend lots of time cooking fabulous foods in my new kitchen.

Seven things I cannot (or will not) do:
1. Skydive.
2. Hang glide.
3. Scuba dive.
4. Go in a submarine underwater (do you see a claustrophobic and fear of heights theme, nahhhh).
5. Get my nipples pierced.
6. Ride a roller coaster.
7. Do a cartwheel.

Seven things that attract me to my spouse (in random order):
1. His big brown eyes.
2. Broad shoulders.
3. Gorgeous bottom.
4. Taste in clothes.
5. Taste in women (namely, me!)
6. Sense of humor.
7. His common sense.

Seven things I say most often:
1. Cool beans.
2. Okie doke.
3. Good luck with that (said in Spongebob voice).
4. Hey, babe (said to DH).
5. Give me a kiss goodbye (to DH and DD, we never leave each other without kisses).
6. Hey, Phoebes (said after the "Hey, Mommy" from DD, she says this a lot!).
7. May I have another glass of wine?

Seven books I read (in random order):
1. The Chronicles of Narnia (also read several times as child, and now to my five-year-old)
2. Little Women
3. Pride and Prejudice
4. Bridget Jones and The Edge of Reason
5. Scarlett (the sequel to Gone with the Wind - different author)
6. Mansfield Park
7. Blood and Gold (Anne Rice)

Seven movies I watch over and over again (in random order):
1. Bridget Jones and The Edge of Reason
2. Pride and Prejudice (BBC miniseries)
3. Love Actually
4. People Will Talk (Cary Grant movie)
5. Sabrina (old and new versions)
6. Dune
7. Practical Magic


I'm going to let my blog friends off the hook for now on this list of seven. I had a hard time with this. I even had to enlist my DH for help.
