1. I knew the second I met Mr. that he was the man I was going to marry.
2. Mr. did not feel the same way, at first:)
3. We joke that I set the hook with football tickets, except that it was no joke!
4. I obsessively pluck my eyebrows, sometimes 3x a day
5. I rarely go a day without talking to my mom
6. I love being a Momma so much, sometimes it hurts

HOw did you come up with that many things? I am sure I would come up with the most stupid things. Jackson is a sweet boy--or seems to be :) and being a mom is fun. I agree with being closer to your mom when you become a mom. I will never know how my mom had 7!
