Interesting but you must explain #7:-) Carribean island living is my dream!

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

Loved learning more about you!!

E @ Scottsville said...

You shower twice a day? Hmmmmm.... I'd be so dried out!

I ALWAYS sing in the car, too. My kids go nuts, but it's MY CAR and I"ll sing if I want to.... which I always do!

Tattoos and Teething Rings said...

Love it! And the twinkies are so cute, I wanna pinch their little cheeks and smother them with smooches!

Kim said...

mmm you said 25 things about me... I only counted 15 :o) - its always fun reading these things though...

SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB said...

i always sing in the car too - and my son hates it!

Stephanie said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and hello, to you, as well! Your twins are precious! Oh and yes, I sing in the car, too. I'm not sure if the little man (I'm 35w pregnant) likes it or not as he immediately starts kicking and squirming, when I do, he he.

Mighty M said...

So curious about #7. I sing just about anywhere if I am in the mood! I'm going to drive my children nuts!! Happy Monday!

Meg Runs said...

Two showers? I take one shower and one bath.
I have a 19 year old daughter and I can't imagine have more babies although I LOVE kids and I love being a mom. How old are you? I ask because I just wonder if it would ever be possible for me...or would it be a miracle? Or both?
Turkey sandwiches for breakfast, yum!

Mommynightowl said...

first, your twins are adorable.

I really like this idea. I've seen it in US weekly with celebrities.

and do you mean you animate them like you talk for them? I used to do that with my two year old and will probably again with my next child.

and yummy I love turkey sandwiches. I love after thanksgiving having tons of turkey left over and eating them with cranberry sauce.

DG at Diary of a Mad Bathroom said...

I might have to try the beer on the airplane thing.

Those twins are cuties!

Cassie said...

You were a roller derby queen? Awesome!

Unknown Mami said...

You have twins and you still manage to get two showers in a day! I'm impressed.

amalia said...

Hi there! I am loving this post so I am going to "steal" it myself!!! Your kids are super cute!!!

takemetomaui said...

Melissa Miller said...

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Oh Girl thank you so much for coming by and seeing me...I l♥ve to find new bloggers...Your twins are just darling my friend...I bet there your lives love...Now love the beer on the airline one how did you manage that...could't happen these days when you have to almost strip to board a plane ha ha!! Thanks for becoming a follower and I will do the same...so I can read about those babies...May you have a Blessed day my friend...hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Meg Runs said...

OK, now I'm totally inspired...you are incredible! I'm sure you treasure your babies more than ever...thanks for answering my question, I hope it wasn't too personal!

Roxy said...

thanks for the comment!
Ditto on the bob stroller...but to run and PUSH...I'm not so great at that one!
Like your blog...will come back to visit!

Helene said...

Maybe WE are twins...I read that list and I was like, "That sounds like ME"!! I eat my pizza with a fork and knife too and before any of my kids were verbal, I made little voices for them as if I could actually read their mind and know what they would want to say. My husband thought I was nuts...but, see, obviously he's the one with NO creativity or humor.

I can't believe there's a 21-yr age difference between your 3rd child and the twins. You look like you're 25 years old!!!!! What's your secret??

Design it Chic said...

Nice learning more about you:) And i love the random:)
Stopping by from SITS!
Happy Tuesday!

* stop by for the dose of random today! lots of updates.. and more random:)

Too Many Hats said...

Hi Olga, thanks for stopping by my blog. I followed you back. Your blog looks amazing - your twins are sooo adorable. I walk most mornings at a quick pace. Yesterday, I tried to jog a little - just a little. I'm going to try to do a little more jogging each week.

Quadmama said...

I sing in my car, too! And I think you know how I feel about dirty dishes since I'm currently going a little crazy without hot water! Thanks for stopping by!

BJ_Mama said...

I totally belt ALL the tunes in my car...and in my kitchen...and bathroom...
I wish I liked to run...but I don't. sorry.
Nice to "meet" you today!

Joanie M said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Olga!

You say you like lots of fabric softener in your wash. Last Sunday, I went to the laundromat (my dryer died). When I put my clothes in the dryer, I couldn't find my box of fabric sheets anywhere! Forty-five minutes later, I glanced over at the spinning dryer and what do I see? My box of dryer sheets in one of the loads! I counted FIFTEEN dryer sheets when I removed the clothes from the dryer! I had the softest clothes in town! I'm surprised we didn't break out from all the softener!

Joy Winner-or-Whiner said...

I'm with you on the dirty dishes. We have 3 generations that have been using Dawn too.

Annie said...

I love to eat pizza the messy way! LOL

Hi Olga! Thanks for the comment on my blog! Your twins are adorable.So you used to work for a major airline? My husband is a captain for ASA. Looking to get out of the biz though, since now he has his baby girl : ) It was nice to meet you!

Lots of fabric softner in the wash is a must!

The Dapper Darling said...

How do you shower twice a day with twins?? Im lucky if I get one in with my one year old :)

RW @ TrueBeauty said...

Oh I'm so glad you found me and thus I'm SUPER glad I found you! Love your blog!! I'm a runner that has sadly stored my running shoes away....no good excuse either, just full time job and full time masters program and full time wife. I am working on it tough. I'm determined to run a local marathon my community holds each year in the spring! So, I have to get to work!

RW @ TrueBeauty said...

One more thing...I laughed out loud when I read that you eat turkey sandwiches for breakfast! I always question my husband because he eats ham sandwiches for breakfast!

Just me said...

Hi Olga, Thank you for following my blog! It's so neat that you have twins too! My girls are 10 now:) Love your blog! So inspirational!

Jennifer said...

How cool! I love learning more about you!

... Pizza with a knife and fork? ;-)

Lori said...

Enjoyed reading about you. Very interesting.

San said...

Hiya from SITS!

Interesting list... and the twins look so CUTE!

Lora said...

I'm the youngest of my dad's--his other two children are 25 and 28 years older than me. Love freaking people out with that little fact :0)

Thanks for finding me today! What a fun place you have!

Mrs. Classic said...

Love the quote and can't wait to get my own bob. Is that sad? I already know what stroller I want before I am pregnant?

Anonymous said...

Wow...showering twice a day with 14 month old twins (even quickly) - impressive time management!

Son and Julie said...

I love your blog & your twins are beautiful! I used to enjoy running before I had my son 6 months ago & I think you have inspired me to break out the jogging stroller and start up again!

Get Real Girl said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I absolutely love your header and your twins are too cute!

barefacedapproach said...

This is such a great idea!!! I may have to "borrow" this myself!!! A turkey sandwich every morning for breakfast sounds awesome. :) And your twins are DARLING!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

Mama Plays Mozart said...

Wow! only 2 regrets in life? That's pretty good, but I'm curious to know what they are :)

Tabitha@ichoosebliss said...

Chantel said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower! I follow you now too! You're twins are adorable, and I'm so jealous that your daughter has that much hair. My daughter needs to hurry and grow some so I can make little pigtails too!

JaelCustomDesigns said...

Miss Madison's Mommy said...

The Only Girl said...

We need to hear more about # 10 and # 15!

(p.s. thanks for stopping by my blog the other day)

Hoity Toity Baby said...

Look at you miss thing! Your little blog is a growin! LOVE it! I also sing in the car! Well I sing everywhere! And I could shower 3 times a day (if I had the chance!)

RebeccaMom said...

They are adorable! and it was interesting to learn some things about you :) Thanks for the follow, I am following you now too!

bluecottonmemory said...

There's a 6 year difference between my first and second, and a 14 year difference between the oldest and youngest. Those little guys have really made it easier for the older ones to fly. BTW, fabric softer, which I love, makes some of my sons break out! That's a bummer! Have a great day!

wife.mom.nurse said...

Thanks for taking a moment to say hello :)

Your meme was very interesting. You must have awesome stories to tell!

The babies are adorable. Sweet :)

Baby News said...

Thanks for stopping by. Your twins are adorable!

*Mirage* said...

Hi there! Thank you for checking out my blog!
Your babies are soooo cuuuute!

2 Toddlers and Me said...

I, too, am a bit jealous about the twice a day shower. You must need far less sleep than me! I am also incredibly jealous that you only have two regrets in your life. How do you manage that? I feel like my regrets just pile up day after day, after day. It's overwhelming and silly, actually.

Morgan said...

21 year gap in-between your third and the twins?!? I'd love to hear that story!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Love to read lists like these :o) And yay! I am finally getting around to some blog reading!
