just for fun!

Page tagged me to tell you some things about me, so here goes:

1) What was on your To-Do list today:

  • Pulling weeds out of my flower bed. I’ve been avoiding it and it had gone on long enough.
  • Picking up the house. It sucks that this is on my list every day. It just doesn’t stay clean. Grrrrr…
  • Go through Ava’s toys and pack up the ones that she no longer plays with. Toy corner in the living room looks SO much better but I have a feeling that won’t last long since her birthday is fast approaching.
  • Paint my toes. Sadly I didn’t accomplish this one, nor do I care to anymore.
  • Work on some birthday party planning. Didn’t really make it to this either. Oh well.
  • Make up the casserole we’re having for dinner tomorrow night. Tomorrow is Zach’s first day back with the kiddos so we’re back to planning out our meals and prepping as much as possible before we get home from work.

2) 5 Snacks you enjoy:
popcorn, apple slices with fat free caramel, grapes, pretzels, and strawberries

3) 5 Places you have lived:

  • the first house I grew up in
  • the house we moved to when I was 9 years old
  • the dorms at the U of A
  • an apartment during college at the U of A
  • the house we live in now

4) What were you doing 5 years ago:
Five years ago, I had recently graduated college and jetted off to Europe the day after. Upon return, I started my first job which quickly went to the crapper after the boss of our department left. I had just moved into my own little rent house all by myself and was a little over a month away from meeting my husband. At the time, I was full of anguish over whether or not I’d ever meet anyone. I had no clue what was in store for me shortly thereafter! It feels like just yesterday, but forever ago at the same time.

5) 5 things you would do if you were a Billionaire:

  • quit my job!!
  • donate money to causes we believe in
  • build a huge house with a swimming pool (& hire a pool guy since Zach says he never wants to take care of a pool)
  • -Share with our families
  • Travel to all the places we want to see
  • And one more – I have always thought if I had a lot of money that it’d be fun to anonymously do things for people, like buy them something they needed or send them on a trip they’d never be able to afford. I think it’d be fun to do stuff like that.

And the other day, Candace posted a fun blog and I'm going to do it too!

Always. Sometimes. Never

I always.....
  • take a glass of water to bed with me.
  • wear my seatbelt.
  • try to be on time, meaning early. I hate being late.
  • err on the side of caution when it comes to how long something has been in my refrigerator. I probably waste a lot but don't want to risk eating something bad.
  • wait in the driveway to make sure the garage door goes down.
  • wear my wedding/engagement ring, Ava's birthstone ring and earrings.
  • make lists. On paper, in excel, in my head.. they never end.
  • always thinking of something. I never let my head rest. I try, but it doesn't seem to work.

I sometimes.....

  • lose my keys.
  • feel like I don't quite measure up.
  • forget I have little ears listening to me.
  • talk too much.
  • let Ava fall asleep in my arms just so I can hold her a little longer.
  • change into my pjs as soon as we get home because I'm ready to be comfortable!
  • remember really random info from the past.

I never.....

  • start a tv show or movie in the middle. I have to watch from the beginning because I don't like not knowing what is going on.
  • lay down in bed and go right to sleep. So wish I could. Never have.
  • like to be the bad guy. Unfortunately sometimes I have to be.
  • get tired of hearing Ava's giggle.
  • feel very confident when I'm with a group of people I don't know well.
  • seem to get in bed as early as I intend to.
  • like it when friendships end, but as I grow up, I realize that sometimes things can never go back to the way they used to be.
  • go a day without thanking the Lord for blessing me with so much more than I deserve!

Is there anything you always.sometimes.never do??


  1. love your lists :) i too, make a list for everything! Hope you have a great week! Enjoy your two days off with Ava!!
