Old School Blogging Returns with Lists of Five!

old school blogging

Old School Blogging is making a return here on MommiFried! I was tagged by my blogging bud and good friend Michelle of A Dish of Daily Life. The theme this time around is Lists of Five. It’s crazy, because I really had to put a lot of thought into some of these – particularly the five places I would like to travel. I’m not big on travel, so I did my best. Hope you enjoy a peek into my twisted mind!

Five Things I Have a Passion For

1. My kids and family! I live for them.
2. Blogging  (Can you tell?)
3. Writing in general (I have a manuscript underway – ho hum.)
4. Cooking and baking whenever I have the chance
5. Vampires. I am a TwiHard and proud of it. Oh – Team Edward. Actually, Team Rob. Nuff’ said. <drool>

Five Things I Would Like to do Before I Die

1. Is walking on the moon asking for too much?
2. Tour Italy!
3. Get my original manuscript published
4. Meet my great grandchildren
5. Own a house and retire on Golden Pond (or the equivalent)

Five Things I Say A Lot

1. I’m so tired! (Cut me some slack. I’m six months pregnant.)
2. Are you kidding me?!?!
3. I love cake.
4. I love you more than peas on rice and monkeys in a frying pan. (No clue why, how, but it makes Aless happy.)
5. GET UP!

Five Books and/or Magazines I Have Read Lately

1. Revenue and the CMO by Glenn Gow/Crimson Marketing
2. Heart of the Bighorns by Lori J. Cooper
3. The Fine Print of Self-Publishing by Mark Levine

Five Places I Would Love to Travel

4. Dawn at Joyful Scribblings
5. Patti at Oh Mrs. Tucker!

    I don’t think a walking tour of the moon is asking too much. My son just requested that we plan a trip to outer space. I’ll have to fit in a moon tour while we are there.

    Love #5 in your list of books! 🙂

    I enjoyed reading your post! I was interested in some of the books you listed and I would love to chat more about The Fine Print of Self-Publishing
    I think this is also such a good idea to get to know one another, I am a new fan of the old school blogging!

    Ha Ha I say I’m tired all the time too, and I am not pregnant! Great post, I really like these because it really lets you get to know the person behind the blog better! Great Job! Jodi @ the noise of boys!

    So much fun! I love your travel list! I’d love to go back to Italy. We were there for a day from the start of a cruise years ago. Not nearly enough time! I went to London with my daughter on a soccer tournament tour a couple years ago and it was amazing! Alaska is on my list too, but my brother in law is stationed there, so I think we’ll be going next year! 🙂
