How to ...

Christine over at From Dates to Diapers tagged me with this fun meme so I thought I'd be a good blog neighbor and follow through. I've also tried to find deals to go with it, too. I'm so cute. ;-)

Here's what I have to do: Devise a list of 5-10 courses you would take to fix your life. It’s more fun to be in classes with friends, so include one class from the person who tagged you that you’d also like to take. Tag five.

How to Organize Chaos:
(this is one that she posted) I wouldn't necessarily say I've got 'chaos' going on over here, but just when I think I have everything all nice, tidy and organized, I find that it's all gotten out of hand again. My plan for the house we are building is to start off organized with nice and neat places to put everything. (The new house has TONS of storage, thank goodness.) So, staying organized is what I'd love to do.

How to stay on top of all the photos I take:
I have taken a few short of a billion photos since my daughter was born, but I've yet to print them out. I've printed several out for other people, but maybe 10 for myself. So sad.

How to prepare for birthdays far in advance:
I'm horrible at keeping all the b-days of friend's kids straight. I put them on the calendar, but that doesn't do any good if you're not constantly looking ahead...I live in the moment most of the time. Sometimes I get gifts too far in advance and forget I have them. (Can't wait to have my 'gift closet' in the new house.) I'd love to be better at this so that I'm not late for their birthdays...better late than never, right? lol

How to finish the projects I've started:
I love starting 'projects' around the house...finishing them is another story. Some get done, but most lack the final touches that deem them complete.

How to shed the last of the baby weight:
Who knew losing the final weight from the baby would be so hard? I have tried to be good and lose the rest of the pounds that are just hanging around, but so far not so good.

Almost forgot to tag 5 others ... please only do this if you want to. What classes would you take?

Mari - MamaGeek - Jenn - Shontell - Jackie

Of course, you guys don't have to find 'deals' to go with each one. ;-)

You never cease to amaze me! I'm gonna check out some of these links, for sure.

Thanks for playing along!!

How am I supposed to follow that? You are good! This was a fun one - I'll have to think about what it will take to fix my life. It may take ne a bit, but I'll see what I come up with. :)

Ummm yea, I'll check out that baby fat book when you're done with it. Actually, I'll take all your wise selections! :)

I'll get to the tag (hopefully Thursday) Melody !
