IF YOU ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF RAISING CHILDREN, BE AWARE. THE TINY FINGERPRINTS THAT SHOW UP ON ALMOST EVERY NEWLY CLEANED SURFACE, THE TOYS SCATTERED AROUND THE HOUSE, THE PILES AND PILES OF LAUNDRY LYING AROUND TO BE TACKLED, WILL DISAPPEAR ALL TOO SOON. AND, YOU WILL, TO YOUR SURPRISE, MISS THEM PROFOUNDLY. THOMAS S. MONSON

25 Random Things

I think that these things come out more in the winter time, because people are bored! At least that is what got me to do it. I posted it on Facebook, and thought that I would get my mileage out of it, since it took me weeks to finish!!!



1) I am a sucker for reality shows: Biggest Loser, Bachelor, Survivor, Amazing Race... really... I LOVE THEM ALL!

2) I am obsessed with kicking ice off cars. I sometimes even kick it off a car that isn't mine.

3) I left the house with a tiara on today. Oops... TOTALLY by accident. Didn't realize it till we went shopping, AFTER Noras dance class! I am sure the moms were talking behind my back about what a weirdo I am!

4)I never re-read my blogs. I spell check them, then post them. That is why my posts are always so random!

5) My husband is getting me a new oven this weekend! Ours has been broken for a few weeks, and because we are selling our house, we weren't sure what we wanted to do. Finally, this weekend we are replacing it! My baking bones CANNOT wait!

6) I am going to be in the Oprah audience in 1 week! WOO HOO!!!

7) I love big cities. Chicago is my all time favorite big city, with NYC very close behind!

8) I have always lived in a small town!

9) I own a Snugi/Slanket... you know the blanket with sleeves.... my father-in-law got it for me for Christmas, and it really is as cool as the infomercial says it is!

10) I check my email 50+ times a day.

11) I send so many texts per day, my phone can't keep track! I really don't know why more people don't text.

12) I have never kept a New Years resolution

13) I am not a crafty person at all... I Just pretend to be one!

14) When Nora falls asleep, I think it is so beautiful, I just sit and stare. I imagine it is like when someone goes into an Art Gallery, and they stand and stare at an exhibit. I don't get the whole art exhibit thing, but staring at my sleeping child... that I get!

15) Trying to get pregnant is only fun for about a year, then it becomes work.

16) Every job I've ever had, I knew was only temporary, because I was going to be a SAHM.

17) I wear a shoe size 5.

18) My second grade teacher was Mrs. Evans, (now I'm Mrs. Evans!)

19) I have my hair done twice a month!

20) My sister-in-law is one of the coolest people I have ever met. (That's why I set her up with my brother...)

21) When I was 17, I was the "Denim Expert" at the Gap. I folded denim better then most Gap employees. I still fold denim that way.

22) I have been fired from 5 jobs! (Is that why they were temporary? See #16)

23 )Whenever I am in Target, I recite the closing announcement, "Attention Target guests, the time is now 9:50, and your Target Store will be closing in 10 minutes. At this time, please bring all final purchases to the front of the store. Once again, your Target store will be closing in 10 minutes." I was really good at making that announcement, and never fired from Target.

24) I didn't really think I could come up with 25 random things.

25) I am more vain then I think I am!
