Honesty is THE best policy

especially when you get awards because of it!!!
thanks rhonda for the award and for wanting to know more about me!
your sweet and i love reading your blog...i'm horrible at leaving comments, sorry!

it's funny, my mom and i were just laughing about how i am sometimes honest to a fault. it runs in the family, it's all her fault...honestly!

the rules are to list 10 things about myself and then pass the award on...

here i go, hold onto your chairs, i'm in the mood to share...

1. my husband and i started dating when i was 14 years old. we broke up a couple times and are living happily ever after for all of eternity.

which brings me to number

2. i joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the Mormon Church) 7 years ago and it has been an amazing and life changing experience. hence, the happily ever after for time in all eternity.

3. i never thought i would have kids and have 4 that i cherish and when i'm not exhausted i seriously consider number 5.

4. just about every day for the past two months i have woke up determined to start my diet, i blow it by the time 4 o'clock rolls around, i eat like a pig and justify it by saying to myself, "i'll start it tomorrow..." ahhh! i frustrate myself so much!!!

5. i PMS really bad...i think i have PMDD.

6. i believe that boys should be taught to open doors for girls, women and the elderly. period and end of discussion. girls should be taught to respect boys/men and allow them to excerise chivalry, something that seems to be lost in today's generation.

7. i am VERY impatient

8. i am pretty good at being happy with what i have and not being upset about what i don't have. it's way to hard trying to "keep up with the jone's."

9. i have never had a massage and don't have plans for one in my future.

10. i have yet to complete a quilt for 3 of my 4 kids. (the little princess has one that was originally intended for sissy when she was 11 and into the color lavender.)

there you have it, 10 things you probably didn't know before now.

i'd like to pass this onto the following,

betty (aka fudgie) - she's a second mom to me and is full of insight. you'll enjoy getting to know her better.

thimbleanna - i would like to know more about her, although i've never met her, i admire her. (is that weird?)

alex - she's a wealth of information. wish i knew her in high school!

amy - i've enjoyed getting to know her through FMM. i love her about me. she's real and funny...i guess that makes her real funny. (i crack myself up! seriously...i'm laughing out loud!)

tanya - she's like me in a lot of ways. no fuss, just an honest, loving real person!

thank you guys, you make blogging fun!!!

p.s. i have such a hard time with these things, i never know what to share. so if there something you want to know about me...just ask

Thanks for sharing! I love your opening comment about how it's mom's fault...honestly! Funny!

I believe the same thing about boys. So far my 5 year almost always does that. My 7 year old needs reminded...hmmm?

Enjoy the rest of the night!

Alex said...

I loved reading these things about you. I have been a member of the church for 10 years this July and I have never regetted a day of it! It's the best life ever!

Rachel said...

um...who are you and why do you know everything about me? I too started dating dear hubby at 14 and joined the church 7 years ago...but I only have 2 kids thus far (after a whole life of wanting to be childless) Thanks for sharing. I'm glad to know there are similar people in the world.

Betty aka Fudgie said...

You know I do cherish you and I so want to tell will be sharing your soul with me! And if I have to...I will find you!
He will let us quilt in Heaven, he loves us!

Here is the word verification...
"whisess" I see wishes!
