Not unlike Jessica, I too enjoy taking a little time to just sit back and talk about myself. Since I've been tagged I'll get right to it...

10 Years Ago...
I had a flat cute stretch mark-free tummy, I was living in Provo, going to UVSC, taking the year off from dating and spending time doing things just for me, like reading-A LOT!!! I was also enjoying Einstein's bagels. There isn't a decent bagel shop in town and I do so like a toasted chocolate chip bagel with a shmear.

5 Things on my to do list today:
go visiting teaching-done
clean the kitchen-mostly done
pay bills-done
go to Costco-
make dinner-Costco pizza perhaps?

Snacks I enjoy:
chocolate chip cookies, wheat thins, Dr. Pepper, Skor bars, Peppermint Patties, blended mochas, brownies, salt and vinegar chips

Things I'd do if I were a Billionaire:
-I'd have all the scrapbooking supplies a girl could want
-I'd add on a bonus room above the garage, extend Brett's workshop and buy him every tool he might need, and possibly a motorcycle to work on
I'd also add on an additional storage room and buy enough food storage to never have to grocery shop again
-I'd get a hot tub
-Oh, and I'd buy myself some new boobs and botox-so vain but hey, I'm a billionaire!

3 of my bad habits:
-I'm terribly messy, not filthy nasty messy, but I don't mind leaving toys and clothes lying around and I don't care if people see me in my pajamas-we all wear them!
-I speak my mind more than I should
-I'm lazy

Jobs I've had:
call center-telemarketing and market research, phone book editing, janitor-got fired, support for people with disabilities, retail, fast food, newspaper girl, lab assistant, and currently a mother-hope I don't get fired!

Things people don't know about me:
-I'm afraid of sharks
-I can't stop eating See's candy-if I get a pound it's usually gone in two days-with or without help!
-I love Christmas music, usually at times of the year other than Christmas-July through October-and I especially love listening to it while cleaning the house.
-I need to be needed.
-I hate public speaking
-I can't swim without plugging my nose

Who I'm tagging:
Kim, Ariann, Tracy, Melissa, and you!

January Highlights

I'm kinda lazy about emailing pictures so I've decided to try to do a photo summary of each month on the ol' bloggy blog...
Here is Quinn, trying out "big boy pants" for the first time. He did some fancy dancing and showed off the ol' underoos for us...he then got right down to business in them in the thirty seconds it took me to run upstairs and get his clothes for the day. Needless to say, I'm not gonna try to push the potty training for a few months!
Here's a cute shot of my little dragons-they played so well and even opted to hold hands for the camera.
This weekend Izzy met her Great Grandma K for the first time. Here she is modeling her new dress Aunt Shelley crocheted for her blessing day. I love this picture.

Today we made snowmen and a snow cave. Here Cave Girl and Lobster Hands are sharing some love.

Here's Izzy, gettin' the squeeze from G.G.
Anna pretending to sleep alongside Izzy, these girls are kindred spirits already!
If you look closely, each one of these fairywinged children is painted...
Anna and Chloe share first place for Best in Show-they're stunning. I can't wait to show this to their boyfriends in a few years. Or should I say boyfriend-these two are both in love with Caleb, a boy in their preschool class. They've agreed to fight over who gets to marry him when the time comes...
