My Favorite Things

Mindi tagged me.... here is how it got started...

Tanya Purcell came up with a great idea. Here is her idea:Whenever Oprah does her ‘Favorite Things’ show, I am always curious about the things she chooses and why. The best part of her ‘Favorite Things’ show is that she shares them with others! Well, the other day I thought to myself, “I don’t have to be Oprah to have ‘Favorite Things’. I started to think about the day to day things that I have or use that bring me some form of enjoyment. I thought it would be interesting to find out the ‘Favorite Things’ of my friends and family too. So here it goes…If money were not an issue and you wanted to load up a basket of your most ‘Favorite Things’ and give it to your friends, what would you choose and why? During your day to day life, are there things that you use each day that make you smile or feel good? Is there something that you look forward to everyday? It can be something simple, like the type of pen you use or something big like the type of car you drive. I will list my ‘Things’ and then I will tag a few of you to do the same thing. here they are in no particular order... These are my most FAVORITE BOOKS. I could read them over and over again. And I can't wait for the movie to come out. I am also glad that my mom and all my sisters have read them so we can all have that in common and so we can talk about how much we love Edward.

I love getting new shoes! I have been needing shoes that are tall because I am short and have always had to roll up my pants... not anymore!!

I love our laptop. It lets me check my friends and family'sblogs and upload pictures really fast and easy. We have a memory card in our camera that slides into the side of the laptop and uploads the pictures and video in about a minute. And we can take it anywhere.
Ok, so this is not really a thing but everytime I go to Ross I always find cute clothes for really cheap. I just wish that everytime I go I could spend as much as I wanted!

I love playing Guitar Hero. It never gets old. We also got to play rockband, it is like guitar hero but 4 people can play. It has a guitar, bass guitar, drums and a microphone so you can sing. You really get graded on your pitch when you sing, and if you are really bad you fail the song. It is hilarious. And like everyone else I have to put our car. Only ours is silver. I love driving it because it is real smooth and quiet on highways. It is also really fast, but mostly I like it because I can drive to go see Brenna and Corey in Logan, and I can drive to go to Ross in Idaho Falls, and I can drive it to El Paso in April!!!

I tag Stacey, Corey, Sarah, Ashley and Laura

The Moose

This cabin here is next to the one we stay at in Island Park. We left one day to go shopping in West Yellowstone and when we got in the car and drove out to the main road the cabins are on there was a big moose running around because it was scared. At one point it started running straight for the car but it just ran past us to try to get away from us. It was kinda scary but fun to see a moose. In the last picture I was haning out the window to take the picture and you can see the car we were in thats how close it was to us. In the summer we saw one drinking from the lake by someones cabin when we were boating here.

She is a natural just like me!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

My mom sent Cambria the shirt and pants, and my sister Sarah made the leggings that are so cute! I was trying to take pictures of Cambria in her cute clothes but she wouldn't stay still, it seems like she is always moving around from one side of the room to the other. She is always looking for new things to play with. So these are the best pictures I got.

How old is he? He is going to be 29 April 5th

Who eats more? We both eat alot, it depends, if it is anything sweet then I definatly eat more than him.

Who said "I love you" first? he did in a text message when I went to El Paso after Stacey had brody, and I was reading the text to all my sisters, and then he picked me up at the airport in Salt Lake and told me in person that night.

Who is taller? he is 5'9 and I am 5'2

Who sings better? He says I do, but he really never sings unless he is doing the dishes, and then he has his headphones on and it never sounds good when someone sings with headphones on.

Who is smarter? I think he is, he went to school longer and actually paid attention in his classes.

Who does the laundry? He washes his work clothes but I do everything else.

Who does the dishes? Me, it is rare when he does

Who proposed? We went 4 wheeling at his parents cabin with his parents and when we went out on the 4 wheeler by ourselves there was a blanket set up under a tree with cheesecake and sparkling cider and he asked me there.

Ward Ski Night

Last night was our ward ski night and so Brenna and Corey came with us. They did really well considering it was their first time, but Brenna kept falling, and she always managed to fall into Corey. It was hilarious.

That is corey on the ground

Tag I'm It
Stacey tagged me...

What was I doing 10 years ago? I was 13, and in 8th grade. That year was the most boring year at school. My teachers were boring and I had to wear a uniform. I had just gotten braces and hated them, but most of my friends ended up getting them later... I was definatly looking forward to highschool.

What are 5 things on my to-do list? Find a job that will just let me work on mondays, fridays and saturdays. Lose 5-10 pounds. Make something with my sewing machine. Finish Cambria's baby scrapbook. Make Aaron go with me to see a girly movie.

What would I do with a Billion dollars? Buy a huge cabin/house in Island Park and live by the lake, get my family out of debt so they can move to Idaho by us, buy a houseboat and jet skis. Go on a trip around the world. Go shopping!!

3 of my bad habits: I still bite my nails. Starting a project and not finishing. Aaron says my worst habit is not answering the phone when I don't know who it is.

5 places I have lived: El Paso, Tx Rexburg, Id Las Vegas, Nv Blackfoot, Id only 4 places so far

5 jobs I have had: Mcdonalds, Dairy Queen (with Stacey...good times) Winger's in Rexburg (I was a cook), Albertsons (customer service), Artco in Rexburg... it was the best job. I put together wedding invitations, I had my own desk and never had to talk to anyone!

Things people don't know about me: I am better at Guitar Hero than anyone I know. I love watching scary movies and being scared (haha stacey). This past year I have driven a 4 wheeler, a snow machine, the razor and a jet ski. I love to stay in motels and hotels, it doesn't matter where or how crappy the place is. I can make a choo choo train sound (I don't know how else to explain it, I can make 2 notes at the same time and it sound like a train). Heating up leftovers from a restaurant from the night before grosses me out. I still have a baby tooth, and I have never had any wisdom teeth!

Cambria's dining table

This is her dining table that matches her kitchen set. She loves to sit here and eat. It is really nice that she can sit and feed herself and drink out of a straw. But she has trouble getting out of the chair, she can't push it back to get down so she ends up falling backwards.

This is Elvis. He lives in Las Vegas with Aaron's brother Jp. At first Cambria wouldn't go near him because he was whining a lot when he got here and it scared her, but she loves dogs and has gotten used to him while he was here. He really is a good dog and was patient with Cambria when she would sit on him and try to ride him like a horse, but he just makes me nervous because of how big he is.
