Tag... You're It

I was tagged by "*bloggirl*" (a cute word made up by Maegan!) Anne a few days ago to tell you all a bit more about me!

Top four wishes:
~I wish that I was ready to be pregnant.
~I wish I was already accepted into my PhD program (and had been granted a TA position!).
~I wish that it was the day after Thanksgiving so I could put out all of my Christmas decorations. I always think a house looks best when it is filled with Christmas cheer and this will be our first Christmas in our house!
~I wish I was able to look in the mirror and love what I saw unconditionally and not search my body for flaws.

Four places I want to travel to:
~I want to take my husband to Scotland. It is where I am from and I want him to see it.
~I want to return to Greece. It was the best trip of my life and I can’t wait to go back!
~I would love to see Yosemite National Park. Growing up we visited most of the National Parks in the country, except Yosemite. It was the park my Dad most wanted to visit. He never had a chance, but I would love to go and honor him.
~I hope someday I am able to tour the wineries in Australia. Australian Shiraz is my favorite wine and it is a country I have also fantasized about visiting.

Four careers I want to be involved in:
~First and foremost, I want to by a Mommy (someday!)
~I truly love what I do right now, which is volunteer. I am able to work with a number of different organizations and truly help people. I am always looking for new places to give some of my time so if any of you know of a great organization in Dallas that is in need of volunteers – let me know!
~I hope to someday be a professor. I’m keeping my fingers crossed and praying like crazy that I get a TA position so I can start working with students soon!
~I have always loved designing custom cards for my friends and family. I do Christmas cards, birthday cards, save the dates, invitations, etc. If I thought I could make any money at all doing it, I would.

Four things I would like God to say to me at the gates of Heaven:
~Welcome Home, My child. (I stole this one from Miss Anne. But I totally agree!)
~Your (corporeal) Dad is waiting for you. (I could also substitute Dad for Nana, Poppop, Nana M, and my grandfather who passed away before I was born)
~I love you.
~You did well, My child.

Four people I tag:
~And a real life friend - Make Mine a Mojito


  1. Thanks for the tag, this looks fun! You have a great list!

  2. You are so lucky you have been to Greece, I want to go there so bad! And I love that you want to be a professor, so do I!

  3. Yosemite is beautiful! =) hope you make it out there someday.

  4. I love Scotland too! It is so beautiful and they have the best shortbread!! You must visit the Orkney islands someday!

  5. You have to go to Yosemite--it is gorgeous!! It's perfect all year round, but, I'm partial to it in the winter. The snow on El Capitan is just magnificent.

    I wish I could look in the mirror and love what I see too, sista!

  6. That is so neat that you are happily a housewife now (so jealous, by the way) but have professional ambitions and mommy hopes as well. Sounds like the best of all worlds.

    I'm also dreaming of taking my husband - and myself! - to Scotland, which we plan to do next year.

  7. I loved 19 minutes. Let me know what you think when you're done!

  8. What a great post.. I love learning more about my bloggy friends..

  9. What a fun post, I love your list! You're so sweet, it sounds like when you're ready, you'll be a great Mommy :) Hubby and I went to Scotland before we got pregnant (everyone joked around in a couples church group that everybody took a big trip before they got pregnant, so anytime someone took a big trip, they were questioned when they got back :)), we loved it! Beautiful, fun, adventurous, culture!

  10. I have yet to make it to Greece. Originally we planned to go there for our honeymoon, but ended up going to Paris instead. Greece is next!!!
