ABC's of Me:

A- Attached or single: Attached for the past 4 years!

B- Best Friend: Definitely Jarom. There's no one I'd rather be with and talk to than him. He always makes me smile and laugh, even when I don't want to!

C-Cake or Pie: Rita's Cheesecake...Mmmm.

D- Day of Choice: Saturdays and Sundays because Jarom has off work and I have a car.

E- Essential Item: My cell phone. Even though I don't love to talk on the phone, I can't imagine not having a cell.

F- Favorite Color: I used to say blue but I think it's changed to red.

G- Gummi Bears or Worms: I love both but I buy bears more often.

H- Hometown: Mapleton, UT

I- Indulgence(s): Reading good books, eating chocolate (especially Dove promises), watching my fav shows when the boys are in bed, driving with the music blasting (although I can only do this if I'm alone...if other people are with me the loud music seems to irritate me), reading other people's blogs, scrapbooking and other crafty things, and snuggling with my three handsome boys!

J- January or July: July all the way! Why? It's warm (although sometimes a little too warm), family vacations, playing in the park and of course my birthday!

K-Kids: Jimmy (I don't think he knows his real name is James): 2 yrs
Glade: 4 months

L-Life is incomplete without: My family & the Gospel

M- Marriage Date: August 24, 2004

N- Number of Siblings: 3 sisters, 2 brothers

O- Oranges or Apples: Gala Apples from Smith's (I swear the WalMart ones don't taste as good).

P- Phobias or Fears: I've always been afraid I'd have a miscarriage, one of my children would be taken from me or I'd get cancer. Recently I've had a lot of dreams that my house catches on fire or that my husband doesn't want me any more...sad, I know...thankfully all just dreams. Oh and I don't like spiders. Jimmy's my spider squisher!

Q- Quote(s): "In the eternal perspective, children - not possessions, not position, not prestige - are our greatest jewels."
"What children take from us, they give, we become people who feel more deeply, question more deeply, hurt more deeply, and love more deeply."

R- Reason To Smile: Glade's toothless grin and adorable frown, Jimmy giving me hugs and pats and saying, "Is otay Mommy." And Jarom calling to say he had a late lunch so I don't need to make dinner.

S- Season: I love the beginning of each season then I tend to wish for the next.

T- Tag: How about Katie and Chira.

U- Unknown Fact About Me: I've thought about this one for far too long. Here are few that not everyone knows so maybe out of the few there is one you didn't already know...

I broke up with Jarom two times (or was it three) before we got engaged. He just kept coming back for more...thankfully.

I choked on a green Spree when I was 14 or so and had to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance. Lessons learned...never eat candy after brushing your teeth and don't laugh at jokes with Sprees in your mouth.

Last time I went to the dentist (2 yrs ago...yikes) I was complimented on my flossing. Truth be told I had only flossed maybe 12 times in the past 12 months and the majority of those were within days of my appointment.

I hate washing off my mascara at night and it sometimes keeps me from putting it on in the morning, "if I never put it on I don't have to take it off."

Growing up, I always wanted a pet monkey. How fun would that be?

V- Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animal: Bring on the animal! My fav is steak and salmon.

W- Worst Habit: I eat more between the hours of 9 pm and midnight than I do the rest of the day. I'm definitely a snacker.

X- X-Rays or Ultrasounds: Well considering I've never had an X-Ray (no broken bones or even sprains), I'd have to say ultrasounds. One of the best days of pregnancy is ultrasound day...I love it! Everything seems more real once I see my baby.

Y- Your Favorite Food: Anything I didn't cook (not that I cook poorly, I just enjoy it more if I didn't make it). I love Pizza Hut's deep dish pizza, Red Robin's mushroom burger and Tepanyaki's anything.

Z: Zodiac: Cancer, I think (July 26th).

Two somewhat strange things we have in common:

I too LOVE the music blasting in the car, but only when I'm alone. If anyone else is in the car, it makes me anxious. It's like too much commotion.

I skip mascara in the morning just because I know I'll have to take it off that night. Worse yet, sometimes I'll wash my entire face before bed but leave my mascara on, and then re-makeup the next day using yesterday's mascara. I know it's horrible, but I've done it often enough that I know that the best mascara for multiple day use is L'Oreal's Telescopic in the gold tube.
