Great Eight: Blah Blah Amy Blah

Shauna posted a meme recently and invited anyone to play along. Why not? Eight Quick Random Habits Of / Facts About / Thoughts Of Amy:
  1. My guilty indulgence: 59-cent frozen pizzas. You know, the single-serving kind that have about three shreds of cheese on them. I like the pepperoni kind because it's tiny pepperoni cubes, not grease-puddle-filled slices. I add shredded mozzarella and bake them on a rack in the oven to let the crust get a little crispy. We refer to them as "evil pizzas" here at the Kannel house because Steve is appalled that I eat them. But I do. I love them. I can't help it.
  2. I have lately developed a preoccupation with eBay. I've had an account for several years but have never really gotten into the auctions. Suddenly I can't get enough. It's dangerously addicting.
  3. It's nearly 3 pm--I really should go take a shower. These days I often don't end up showering until after lunch. When you're just sitting around the house all day there's not much motivation to get cleaned up.
  4. I really would like to find a brown and blue comforter set for our in-progress guest bedroom. I love that color combination. I like this Target one, but it has terrible reviews for quality. I've looked at tons of online stores and can't find anything. Probably just as well, since a) we have nowhere to put it if we bought it now, and b) we have enough other things to spend money on for the next couple of months.
  5. These stretchy knit black capris I'm wearing are the best maternity clothing item ever. Too bad they're not even mine. At least half of my favorite maternity clothes aren't.
  6. Gooey homemade brownies are a dangerous, dangerous thing to have in the house. I should freeze half of them.
  7. I wish reading on the couch didn't make me fall asleep. I have all these great books to dig into, but when I lie down to read them (since I am supposed to be off my feet, and I am semi-sitting-up enough at the computer) I end up getting sleepy. Lately I am averaging two naps a day, plus about eight hours at night. It's really quite ridiculous. But I guess my body is appreciating it since I'm not having any trouble sleeping at night. Everyone keeps saying, "Enjoy it while you can"--I know, I know.
  8. I wish I were packing for vacation right now. My parents are on their way to South Carolina as I type and my in-laws head out to DC tomorrow. We had planned to join the DC trip but either one sounds fabulous right about now. I don't mean to be whiny, I know this restricted activity thing will be worth it in the end, but it's still a bummer.

Like Shauna, I won't tag anyone in particular, but will invite anyone interested to post their own random eight, or leave a comment with just one.

Totinos Party pizzas - I craved those with my first pregnancy. Ate so many of them I burned out on them!

I love those Red Baron personal pepperoni pizzas. So good, but soooo bad for you.

I also love that chocolate brown/blue color combo. We don't have a guest room any more since we have little ones!

And my favorite maternity pants through both pregnancies was a pair of stretchy boot cut black pants from Target. I wore them all the way to the end!!! Very comfy. If I could still wear them I would.

I am SO jealous of your naps! I could use one right now!

I'm addicted to those pizzas too. I haven’t had one in a while because it would require turning on the oven and heating up my house, but they beckon from the freezer every time I open it up for a popsicle (which is often).
