My friend Carla tagged me for this. I'm obviously catching up on all the memes this week, so here you go.

4. CSI: Miami
5. Jeopardy!
6. Antiques Roadshow

8 Things that Happened Yesterday

(Now, please keep in mind that this is the yesterday from when I actually wrote this blog. I'm setting it to post a week later. Now you know my dirty little blogging secret.)

1. The stock market tanked and I refused to look at our 401Ks
2. I taught some lessons at SUU
3. I totally spaced going to the high school to work with the lead in the musical
4. I went to my book club (we read Austenland, which is fun, but not much to discuss!)
5. I cuddled with my kiddos
6. I went to my sister-in-law's karaoke birthday party (I didn't sing though. They didn't have any opera arias on the list. The nerve.)
7. I did endless dishes
8. I blogged, of course!

8 Favorite Places to Eat

4. A good book to read
5. Joel getting his dream job
6. Halloween
7. Christmas
8. Bria's baptism

8 Things on My Wish List

  1. Ooh, a grand piano is on my list too. And CSI gives me nightmares! I wish I could watch it.

    That was fun to read!

  2. I love that you're a non-tagger. Everytime I see a tag on someone's blog, I always tense up, hoping I don't see my name.

    And I watch all the CSI's too. I can't get enough of Miama, because it's so lame. I love it!

  3. Thanks for doing the tag, its always nice to know new things about people. :)

  4. We too are looking forward to getting out of debt. :) Good list.

  5. I don't tag people either. And I usually don't do tags. SHhhh! I don't think we watch any of the same TV shows -- ha ha ha!

    And IHOP? really?

  6. You are the biggest TV loser I know.
