my 5's:

prompted by Carrie, i thought this would be really fun. and it was fun to read hers - amazing the things you could never know about a person otherwise.... so, read, learn, enjoy...

5 things under $5 I couldn't live without:
coffee
toothbrush
snow
trees
Landon (well, he's a litte more expensive than $5 - but his love is free!)

5 favorite movies:
while you were sleeping
pride and prejudice (the newer one)
legends of the fall
a river runs through it
braveheart

5 favorite baby names:
um, landon's not too keen on us sharing these until we're done with babies (though we haven't even begun! - don't want you to steal our great ideas).
but if i had it my way, our kids would be named after things in nature, mostly trees.


5 songs I love:
hymns in general
wild horses - rolling stones (we danced to this on our wedding day!)
blessed the rains - toto
if you want me to - ginny owens
shout to the lord - first song i remember understanding what worship was as a child, and wanting to worship God with my whole heart. really special.

5 positive influences:
family
Landon
african orphans
literature
college

5 things always in my purse:
credit card
Bible
tampons
chapstick
trash

5 life-changing moments:
1999 - Columbine shooting
2002 - moving back to Colorado (from APU)
2004 - Landon FINALLY falls in love with me
2005 - living in Africa
2007 - moving to Illinois

5 current obsessions:
reading your blogs
coffee
pulling dandelions
flowers
family

5 places i want to go:
Colorado
New Zealand
Kenya - i miss my babies!
Montana - don't you think i would love it there?
Switzerland

5 appliances or kitchen tools I cannot live without:

Just read your blog about the ant infestation. Yuk! I'd be mortified, too!
I just read not too long ago to use cornmeal. They eat it, but can't digest it, so it kills them. That's the theory anyway. It won't be harmful for Duvick, or kids, etc. It's probably not immediate, but within 24 hrs maybe(?). Try it outside first - see if it works. Cheap if it does. Maybe you can market something and make money :)
Love ya guys - Patty P
