3. the rest of my family
4. reading, when I get a chance
5. scrapbooking, when I get a chance
6. my church

Three things:
1. Wal-Mart and Target in one day?? HOLY COW. That would be an amazing accomplishment for me.
2. The "gum trash" left by Kevin--please tell me the wrapper doesn't have the chewed gum in it. Gross!!
3. You seem to be a little harsh on your sister!!!!! I don't want Kevin to EVER get his own blog. HA!!

By the way, I love your new layout. VERY cute!!!!
