5 things on my to-do list:
1. Make 20 crayon rolls for Porter's Kindergarten teacher
2. Clean my bathroom (it's really time to stop putting this off)
3. Clean my craft area (just so I can make it messy again)
4. Call Just Brakes to get the brakes on our car fixed
5. Take all the junk that is cluttering my closet and the garage to Good Will

5 jobs that I have had:
1. Assembler and Office Manager at a Machine Shop
2. Personal Trainer at 24-hour Fitness
3. Office Manager for a software company
4. College Textbook sales rep
5. MOM!!

5 places I've lived:
1. Canoga Park/West Hills, CA
2. Logan, UT
3. West Valley City, UT
4. Sandy, UT
5. Albuquerque, NM

5 favorite snacks
1. Anything chocolate (as long as it's without nuts)
2. Cheese on Triscut crackers
3. Cut up apples or pears with a yummy peanut butter/yogurt dip
4. Dried berries
5. vanilla ice cream with lots of hot fudge

5 things I would do if I was a Billionaire:
1. Build our dream house on lots of land
2. Have horses and chickens, a huge garden and a fruit orchard
3. Buy Rhett a boat and a Dune Buggy
4. Throw out all the clothes in Rhett's and my closet (except for my favorite jeans) and get a new wardrobe for both of us
5. Eat King Crab legs, shrimp and salmon every week

5 things you may not know about me:
1. I really would like to go back to school again to get my Masters in Early Childhood Education
2. I would really like to go back and live in Salt Lake; alas, it's probably never going to happen
3. I would love to live back East, but it's too far away from family (I know it contridicts #2, but oh well!)
4. I would love to teach Preschool and have my own classroom
5. If I could afford it, I would have plastic surgery (That's all I'm going to say about that)

5 Things I love:
1. Rhett - He would much rather be home playing with us, but he gets up everyday to go to work to make sure we are provided for. He is the hardest worker I've ever seen, is very professional and takes his work very seriously. I also appreciate that he sees my role as a stay-at-home mom very seriously and does everything to make sure I can stay at home. Plus, he puts up with all my creative and insane projects.
2. Porter, Zach, and Andrew - They are the cutest, craziest, funnest, funniest, sweetest, looniest, best boys ever and I appreciate that they have taught me patience, laughter, tolerance, joy, despair, understanding, hope, and all the other qualities that I need to learn to be just like Heavenly Father. I can't imagine life without them.
3. Our great families - you couldn't ask for a better (and crazier) bunch of people. I pray everyday that my kids grow up with that same closeness.
4. My house - I love the layout and the space we have; I'm not particularly fond of where we live, but that will change soon
5. Chocolate

I tag Tanya, Debra, and Deon.

You could move to Phoenix. Then Eric could fix your car for free and the boys could play with my girls. Have I encouraged you enough yet? Because I can keep going. It would be so fun to have you guys here.

Ah Steph, I had a good laugh reading that. Particularly under "5 things you may not know about me" #5. I wish you guys would move back to Salt Lake, we would sure love it!

Darrell and Alissa said...

Oh- please come be our neighbor again!! That would be so fun! So what if we get a lot of tornado scares- right?! It was fun reading all the little things about you!

Loved reading your top five. That was a great list. Good luck with summer activities. I am wondering how to keep my kids busy too. Though I'm looking forward to sleeping in occasionally. :) Thank goodness for beautiful weather to enjoy. Take care!

Fun to read about what is going on with you and your family. You should move to the great state of Texas. Everything is bigger and better here. I sound like a commercial but its trus -- just ask Greg and Jodi. Anyway, I hope you have a great summer. Talk to you soon.
