My Quirks

Thanks HeadCase for tagging me.

1. I have to sleep with a fan or noise machine

2. I can't watch t.v. or a movie without playing a game on my laptop or my Electronic Sudoku.

3. I don't like watching t.v. live I prefer the ability to skip stupid commercials.

4. I love Ricky's leather couch that came with him when we got married. I sit down from getting home and I don't want to get back up. I'll even fall asleep on it and sleep great.

5. I love snowmen and collect them. I even have a snowman nativity scene. My sister says it's sacrilegious but I still like it.

6. I love the series Charmed.

7. I prefer Marshmallow Mateys over Lucky Charms. Sorry Heather.

8. I enjoy staying in touch with old friends.

9. I cross stitch, but I only like to do Paula Vaughn prints.

I don't really want to tag anyone, so I not going to. If you want to cut and paste this for your own blog be my guest. :)

7 Random facts about me.

I was tagged for my FIRST!!! blog tag. Thanks Mrs. R. I'm not that creative ever so I'll just work on this as they come to me ;)

The rules: link your tagger and list these rules on your blog. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. Here goes:

1. I cry at t.v. and movies way too easily. I cry at pretty much every series finale. Growing Pains balled, Cosby show balled, 90210 balled, Friends balled for at least 2 days every time I thought about it. PS I Love You I seriously soaked Ricky's shirt, he thought I was crazy, it was uncontrollable sobs red swollen eyes and runny nose that wouldn't stop. It was an AWESOME movie.

2. I'm OCD about stupid stuff like having my DVD's arranged alphabetically, and I separate out the Disney/Kid movies from the other movies. I love to alphabetize or put things in chronological order and file. It drives me nuts to have charts at work not in proper order. But I'm the messiest person in pretty much every other aspect of my life.

3. I have to sleep with the fan on or during the winter when it is too cold I have a white noise machine. I can't sleep in silence. But I do love being bundled up in my blanket and have the cold fan blowing on my face. I have Carolee Biehn to blame for this habit. She had a fan at a sleep over once and I've had one ever since. Good thing Ricky has the same habit as I do :)

4. One of my best friends I've had since I was 1 1/2. Her mom and my mom were best friends and we've been friends ever since. So we've been friends for 29 years, and usually don't go more than a week or so without talking. We've been there for almost every major event in our lives, and I don't see this friendship ending anytime soon. :)

5. I can't start a game of spider solitaire, free cell or regular solitaire and leave it until I win a game. It's stupid I know but I have to beat at least one game before I can walk away from it. I would never be good in Vegas, cuz I would lose tons of money because of this habit. I can't leave a nickle or penny slot until I've won either.

6. I love to have dinner parties. I love to be mothering and taking care of people. I hate to the stress of putting it all together, but I love having everyone over. I'm getting pretty good and managing my time to have everything ready in time without having half the meal cold. I just with I had a bigger kitchen and two ovens :) I love to cook and love kitchen gadgets, they over run my kitchen. I guess that's why I sell Pampered Chef :)

7. I love Star Wars. I can watch any of the 6 movies at any given time. When I was little I wanted to be Leia and I always thought Luke was so good looking (what was I thinking!) I have bought the Lego Star Wars video games and I really really really want the Lego Millennium Falcon. 3,000 pieces!!! What is better than Star Wars and Legos? I'm lucky though because I married a Star Wars geek who actually listens to the audio books on tape, He's even got me listening to them too. (don't laugh they are good!!) We even record the new Star Wars Clone Wars cartoon and watch it every Friday night. It's our cheap date night!

Okay that is all for this quiz, you all knew I was a nerd, but you probably have a new found appreciation for my nerdiness. There are lots more things I could probably think of but that's all you get for now. I'm going to tag Katie A, Jenny J, Lindsay S, Ashley P, Melissa P, Heather C, Melanie Y.

Just some thoughts

I started subscribing to LDS New, Daily Gems and Family Gems. You can sign up through Anyways I just liked today's Daily Gem thought I'd share it.

Core Values Learned from Our Mothers

"Being a mother has never been an easy role. Some of the oldest writings in the world admonish us not to forsake the law of our mother,instruct us that a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother, and warn us not to ignore our mother when she is old (see Proverbs 1:8; 10:1;
Thomas S. Monson, "If Ye Are Prepared Ye Shall Not Fear," Ensign, Nov. 2004, 116

Attending Meetings to Qualify for Guidance

"How can attending your meetings--particularly sacrament meeting--bless you and your family? Regularly partaking of the sacrament will help you keep your baptismal covenant. As you live worthily and renew this covenant weekly, you will qualify for the guidance of the Spirit. The Holy Ghost will guide you and will teach you what you should do to bless your family."
Mary N. Cook, "Strengthen Home and Family," Ensign, Nov. 2007, 12

Okay stop nagging me about not updating already. There just isn't a whole lot to update with. Life is good we are good. Just been busy with work and spending time with each other. I started back with Pampered Chef last week and had a great show with Ricky's Mom, Jennifer. It was great to be back into the swing of things. I love doing my Pampered Chef shows, making food and chatting things up with great people, so if anyone is interested in hosting a show let me know. No better way to earn fun free things for your kitchen.

Okay now I'm off that plug. Ricky and I are in the process of re-financing the house to finalize all of my past life once and for all. Things are going pretty smoothly. My credit survived the divorce nicely which I was pleasantly pleased about. We are just waiting on the appraisal to be done, so please keep us in your prayers that all goes well and we come through this whole economic mess on the plus side.

Ricky has been working really hard at work. And coming home exhausted. I'm trying to be the good wife with meals and keeping house. It's great to be a wife! I absolutely love my husband and can't believe how much he makes me laugh everyday. (side note just now he got excited about his video game, knocked over his cup of water all over some of my Pampered Chef paperwork and tried really hard to get it cleaned up before I got upstairs to see what the shrieking was all about...typical night in our house. haha) I'm going to have to child proof my house before we ever have kids, All the breakable things are getting put up higher. ;)

But I have to tell you I really am married to the best guy in the world. Sunday we got home from church and I made us some lunch, then I fell asleep on the couch to take a little nap, while I was napping he cleaned up the entire kitchen. The little things he does everyday makes me smile and I am so grateful to have him in my life.

Well that is about all. Okay Love you all and I'll work more on keeping you posted.
