I was tagged by Angie and Suzi on this one and I am just barely getting around to doing it. Thanks guys!!
TEN YEARS AGO I WAS: I think I was living in a condo in Orem with Kerri, Kathy, Nic at night, Brooklyn and Missy. Then it was the next semester that we moved to Provo with Angie and Kerri. Anyway this was such a great time in my life. Living the college life with great roommates who have become life long friends. Staying up late talking and laughing, sharing clothes, doing each others makeup, waiting for missionares (that we didn't marry but swore that we would) etc. I have to say I have such sweet fun memeories of this time in my life and I am so thankful that I met these wonderful girls.
FIVE PLACES I HAVE LIVED: Sandy until 9th grade. South Jordan until I was married at age 21. In college I lived in Provo and Orem. Then once I was married we lived in Provo, Lehi, South Jordan and Las Vegas.
THINGS ON MY TO DO LIST: Print off a picture of my grandma and the great grand kids for her birthday. Read a book for my class for my masters degree. Finish re-reading Standing for Something. Go and get a new drivers license. Re-new my car registration. Finish de-junking and organizing the kids and my room.
THREE BAD HABITS: 1) I have already said this before on another tag but picking my split ends. Horrible habit don't ever start doing this it is very addicting. Thanks Suzi.
2) Not looking in my blind spot or looking well enough when I back out in my car. I got in a wreck two weeks ago from this. I am really trying to do better :).
3) Thinking that everyone has the same thought process as me on issues of morality, relationships, honesty, friendship etc. I am trying to be more loving, open minded and accepting of people's different realities and ideas and beliefs. Man this hard for me.
I will add another one: I keep taking Bryns to the bus stop in my robe and big boots. Then she wants me to get out and walk her to the bus and everyone leaving for work in my neighborhood get to see me in my robe with my boots, with my hair standing on end. It is embarassing to me but obviously not enough for me to do anything about it. The other day I wore sweats to drop her off and Bryns said, "mom it is so good that you are dressed today."
FIVE THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME:
1) I love to go out to eat and go to a movie. This is and I think always will be my favorite thing to do on a date.
2) I love to roller skate and roller blade. I haven't done this forever but I really love doing it! I also love wake boarding! I'm not good but I just absolutely love it!!
3) If I am really tired I will just sleep in my clothes. I don't care about certain types of pillows, thread count on sheets etc. I am just happy to be able to sleep and get some rest. Some of my friends think this is so funny because they are so particular about all of these things. My roommates have pictures of me in college asleep in my clothes. They used to say I would wake up looking exactly the same. I don't think this is true.
4) I love to read and continue learning. I really do believe that the Glory of God is intelligence! I love having conversations with people about deep meaningful topics.
5) I love to go hiking. I love being in the mountains and getting exercise there is no better way to get exercise!!
I am tagging and of my friends who have not done this tag!!
P.S. Ashlee I will do the purse tag this weekend!

This weekend we went to St. George for President's Day. The weather was so nice. One day it was 62. It is amazing to me how theraputic the weather can be. The kids played outside the whole time and we had so much fun. On Saturday morning my mom and I went to the St. George temple. It was so crowded. We waited for 40 minutes and still didn't get into a session. Finally we found a way to serve after an hour and a half. It is such an amazing temple! I love the spirit I feel in the temple. I wish I had that feeling of peace with me at all times.

On friday Tai and I took Brynlee, Kelcie, and Kwincee to the Hannah Montan Movie. It was so funny because the 3-D glasses were too big for the girls faces. The girls had so much fun dancing and singing and running around the theatre. It was perfect because their were only a few other people there so they could really enjoy it. Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus are constantly on in our car at Brynlee's request. And I will admit that I really love the music too. I am always singing to it and Brynlee says, "mom are you singing?" I guess she thinks it's wierd that I like her music too! My camera batteries had died when I tried to get a picture. But we had a great time! Thanks for a fun time Tai.

One of my best friends Angie turned 29 yesterday! Angie and I were roommates in college and we always had so much fun together. She was such a sweet roommate and was and still is always there for me. In those days she would get up in the morning to turn off my alarm when I wouldn't hear it (she had to walk all the way across the room to turn it off). She would always talk to me about boy troubles and we could always laugh and have fun. We also coached together at Mountain View when we were in college. These days we have had so much fun judging together, hanging out with our kids together and having girls nights out. She is still listening to all of my boy problems so I guess not much has changed. I love that Angie is not judgemental. I can tell her anything and she relates and really gets into what I am telling her. She is thoughtful, kind, and is always up for something fun! She is an amazing person and friend and I love her so much! Your the best Ang hope you had a happy birthday! You deserve it!

On our way to San Deigo we stopped to give the kids a break in Las Vegas. Josh and Heather were there for a furniture convention and so we got to see them for a little while. Then one of my good friends from Vegas happen to be on the strip and so they met up with us for lunch and then we went on a tour of the M&M factory. It was so good to see Dennett, Jackson, and Max we miss them so much. As we pulled into Vegas Brynlee got so excited and said, "mom I love it here. I like it here so much better than Utah." I think she really misses her friends who became our family when we didn't have any in Vegas. We had an amazing ward and amazing friends.
