Tagged from Jenni (only for you girl!)

A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Okay Jenni: Here you have it.

1. I am most organized in random piles. Sure, an outsider would think my house is a cluttered mess, but I really know where everything I need is, as long as no one moves my pile. This technique is needing revising since blessed Sevy likes to create havoc on my life.

2. I'm a wannabe artist. I love art and I love crafts, and people think I'm creative, but no. I just steal people's ideas and try to make them my own. Sad. That's the truth.

3. I'm addicted to sugar. I can't help it. It's really my food of choice. I like to think of it this way though: licorice is a fat-free food. That means I can eat as much of it as I want! (don't knock it--it's great rationale.)

4. I love teeny-bopper movies and books. It's embarrassing, but it's who I am. Jon makes fun of me all the time about it because I love the Stephenie Meyer's books and I love Meg Cabot's books and I love basically every movie Anne Hathaway is in (and frankly, that's a lot of happy feel good movies). I just love happy feel good!

5. Jon says I don't use "be" verbs. Apparently I say, "this needs washed." when I'm suppose to say, "this needs to be washed." It drives him crazy. I blame the fact that I was raised and pretty much entirely educated in Idaho. Go figure.

6. I'm the most un-motivated gym-addict I know. I know you are thinking, "What?" Let me explain: I'm really good at going to classes like 6 days a week and working hard, and just getting that "ah yeah" felling out of a 1 hr gym class, but if I try to work out by myself, it's no good. I last like 10 minutes. However, I will be teaching my very own x-biking class, and I can only hope that I'll stay motivated for the class. (I will be . . . I promise!)

Okay. So there you have it. I'm super lazy though, so all SSU girls checking this, you are all tagged. Kalle-Jenni tagged you so that counts for me too! Poe-start your blog and your it. This goes for the rest of you! I better hear from you soon.


Harvest Fun in Amarillo

Sevy has a new love for her nose. I don't know where she got this from, but as the good parents we are, we've been trying to capture her pickin' it. So at the corn maze last night we took a family picture in the dark and what does Sevy do for us? Oh, Yes! She thought she wouldn't get caught . . .
One of the funniest things about going to Amarillo, is the gathering of the Monkey Squad. These kiddo's are hilarious together! They are like a pack of crazies running amuck and driving us crazy, but they are so cute that you just gotta love 'em!

I know everyone tells me that Sevy is the spitting image/mini-me of Jon, and I'm always in denile because as a mom--having a girl--you want them to look like you. Well, Sevy looks like Jon, it's undeniable. But, Sevy's hair looks like the top of the corn stalks. She's very versitile. I feel a model career in the works.

The last greatest thing about the corn maze was the corn gun. As a Idaho Native, potato guns are basically the coolest things ever, but this corn gun was actually quite comparable. I thought we looked good behind the big artillary also!


Poor Sick Sevy

Since we've got back to Lubbock, poor Sevy has been fighting one sickness after another. There has been so many pros and cons with this little adventure that we just don't know what to think. The cons: well, if any of you have ever cleaned up puke at all hours of the night, changing sheets and giving late night baths, you know where I'm coming from. Her appetite has changed and so we now find a lot more food on her than in her, but she doesn't seem to mind. And, we have gone through like 2 gallons of milk a week in her never ending desire for a "ba-ba." The pros: since baby girl has gotten a little older, she hasn't loved cuddling until lately again. She insists on laying by us--or on us--sitting on our laps, curling into us, and basically always being by one of us . . . usually me because I'm with her 90% of the day. I have to admit, I really love it! She's still such a monkey, but has been much more content just sitting and reading books. Now if we could just get her feeling better.


SSU then and Now!

SSU 2000

SSU 2007

Nothing is cooler to me than a rockin' group of friends! A week (or so) ago, Sevy and I ventured back up to Utah for the wedding of one of my fellow SSU girls and it was so cool to see basically everyone. We never made it all together at one time, but we made a great effort! These girls still just rock my world! Out of the 9 of us from high school, check out the stats:

9 graduated H.S. with honors

8 have college degrees

1 has finished her master's (she's a nurse practitionor)

2 studied school abroad

7 are married in the temple
4 served full time missions

8 can no longer wear sleaveless dresses (oh well)

5 kids have been born

3 more are on the way

2 have competed in multiple marathons

3 refuse to run if possible

Between the lot of us, we have lived or are living in Idaho, Utah, Oklahoma, Texas, California, Michigan, North Corolina, Hawaii, Brazil, Niceragua (sp?), Arizona

We have 2 nurses, 1 teacher, 1 social worker, 1 english major, 1 chick in finance, 1 business girl, 1 rocking full-time mom (she's about to pop #3 out!), them me the advertising girl working as an instructor at the gym!

I think all in all we turned out okay for a group of girls from Rexburg, Idaho! Seeing them all made me miss them all the more, but the good thing about our group is that we can go years without seeing or even talking to each other much and still when we all get together it's the same as it's always been. A 7 on the Ripppter scale!
