Happy Birthday to ME!!!

So, today I turned 34.  I thought I'd post 34 things about me.

1.  I have a great husband that I've been married to for almost 13 years that I love tons
2.  I have 3 crazy little boys that are full of life and keep me going.  I love them so much even though they drive me crazy.
3.  I love to scrapbook
4.  I love crafts... especially home decorating crafts
5.  I love to decorate my home
6.  I love to sew if it's to decorate me home
7.  I love to shop
8.  I recently took up the craft of cake decorating
9.  I like to cook (if I have time and I'm not distracted)
10.  I like to read (or look at) magazines
11.  I love to eat
12.  I like to exercise (mostly because I love to eat)
13.  I like to take my kids on fun outings
14.  I don't like to be cooped up in my home all day
15.  I like to go on walks.
16.  I like to ride my bike
17.  I like to talk
18.  I like to hang out with friends
19.  I like blogging
20.  I like camping and barbecuing
21.  I like to play hostess (have gatherings at my home)
22.  I don't like to clean my house.
23.  I don't like to do dishes
24.  I don't like to do laundry
25.  I don't like to clean up toys
26.  Sometimes I don't like my kids (gasp)
27.  I hate hair balls (like when you sweep and there is hair on the broom.  Or when you clean and hair gets on the sponge or rag)
28.  I don't like to dress up.  I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal
29.  I don't like to wear jewelry (except a ring)
30.  I don't like to watch movies
31.  I barely like to watch TV
32.  I don't like to read (for the most part)
33.  I don't like the cold/snow.
34.  I like people to comment on my blog, so leave me a comment if you can think of anything I forgot.

That was one HOT cake.
I don't know if you can tell, but my idea behind this cake was that I want it to look like a scrapbook page.  It has a strip of patterned paper down the side, with a border of ribbon next to it.  Then it has some swirlies and flowers.  And a cute journalling box with "Happy 34 Anisa" in it.  I bought myself a Cricut Expression for my birthday and I've been having fun cutting out letters and accents for scrapbooking and vinyl to decorate my walls.  I plan on doing a lot more fun crafting and scrapbooking products with it.  Thanks for all of the gifts from everyone... especially my gift cards because now I get to go shopping!!!
