My birthday is next week. I'm not normally a big birthday-celebrater kind of person, but I just realized that I spent the entire year telling people that I was 38 years old. And... after a little wrestling match with some math...it turns out that I am in fact, actually only THIRTY SEVEN YEARS OLD. You guys! I cheated myself for an entire year! Now I feel like I have to make up for it by shouting to anyone that will listen that I am exactly 37 years old...for a few more days at least.

There's not a lot of things I take too seriously, but bedtime and popcorn definitely make the list. My husband used to be gone A LOT with the military. And with four kids ... (that I love with my WHOLE HEART!!) ... some days bedtime was the only reason I made it through the day.

Have you ever seen the movie Gremlins? Basically there are these CRAZY ADORABLE creatures that everyone in the entire world with an actual heart, just wants to take home and squish and hold for the rest of their lives. But details...details...details...I honestly can't remember how...but somehow they turn into these CRAZY MONSTERS with nightmarish faces and they basically can't be stopped on their rampage of destruction. I'm like that exactly 7 seconds past bedtime. Including the face. It's terrifying really.

I have a confession. I kind of LOVE airports. If I have an afternoon flight, I'll legitimately get a ride to the airport at 6 am just so I can hang out. I'm not even kidding. There is always so much going on...and none of it involves me.

None of it requires my attention or intervention. I can watch children go through complete and utter melt downs in the middle of a public walk way, screaming and begging their parents to somehow change the laws of the universe because "HE TOOK MY CAR AND ALSO I AM NOT EATING CANDY AND MY LEGS STOPPED WORKING!!" and I can think to myself, "Oh...kids are so adorable."

If you only know me from the internet, and have never met me in person... I'm 37% certain that I come across as stable and calm, incredibly refined and very very much not the kind of person that would ever dance around a room full of cookie decorators to absolutely no music at all....while also singing the theme song to a very popular Disney snow princess movie off key and at the top of my lungs.

Do you know what I love most about this whole cookie WORLD we've built? I mean...besides EVERYTHING?! Actually...everything kind of sums it up. But if I HAD to say something besides everything, like if for some inexplicable reason, the future of our world as we know it depended upon me picking something else besides everything... I could do that for you. I would sacrifice like that because the future of our world is something that I'm actually quite fond of and would really love to see it stick around.

Did you know that I used to live in Georgia? It's true. My husband and I moved there for a few months right after we got married. I could really go for some of that whole "still warm in the winter" thing that they've got going on over there right now. And of all the crazy memories I have of that state, there are three that are permanently etched into my brain whenever I think about Georgia.

Like most parents, I am absolutely certain that my children are the most beautiful, smart, and insanely talented little creatures on the planet. And like most parents... I am also quite aware that at least half my claims are *slightly* exaggerated. With one exception.
