10 Things

There are five rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and 11 random things.
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post.
4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them you've tagged them.

10 Random Things:

1. I can't sleep with my hair down. It drives me nuts having my hair get stuck when I move around. It has to be in a ponytail... and Will hates it. :o)

2. I DESPERATELY want to be a stay at home mom. That's no secret. It's such an ache in my heart right now, so all of my praying friends, please put that on your prayer list. We need to figure out a way to make that happen. (Also, Will tests for Tech Sgt on Tuesday, he doesn't think he'll make it his first time, but you could still pray for that because then I could definitely stay home.) I know God is bigger, and will make a way when He's ready, but patience is not my strongest suit.

3. I love rap music. I really do. I love me some Lil' Wayne, Jay-Z, and Drake. I love the way their voices sound. I don't often listen to it because Will hates it and obviously the girls shouldn't be listening to it, but when I hear a new song on the radio, I love it!

4. I HATE cheese, milk and cilantro the most of all of my picky weird food things. Bleck! Soo gross! My step mom likes to make things with cheese and watch my reaction when I actually like it and then tell me there's cheese in it! Sigh... Milk just plain grosses me out. And cilantro? That just tastes like a giant cloud of stink.

5. I like going to the gym. I don't EVER get to go though... another reason I'm still fat. I hate working out at home.

6. I met Will at the Cactus Moon (a country bar). Embarrassing, yes, but it's true. He told me he was in love with me before we were even "official." We were engaged 3 weeks later.

7. My love language is Words of Affirmation, so I'm super sensitive and really need to hear nice things. I cry really easily, and I'm a sympathy crier. If I see tears beginning to form when I'm talking to you, I start tearing up. I can't control it.

8. I love doing hair and makeup. LOVE it. I got hired at MAC earlier this year when I was teaching part time, I really wanted to do it but then the next day was asked to take on the full time 2nd grade position. If I could go back to school I'd totally want to go to cosmetology school.

9. I really, really, REALLY want more tattoos. I only have the one heart on the back of my neck, but I would totally have a half sleeve if I was brave enough. I've got a few more that I have in my mind that I want.

10. I love all reality tv and rarely watch the real news. Fo reals. All of the Real Housewives, Jersey Shore, E! News, Battle of the Exes on MTV, Khloe and Lamar, The Bachleor, Jerseylicious, Glam Fairy, all of it. Really, ALL of it.

Questions from Danielle:

1. If money, schooling or time was no obstacle, what career would you choose?
I'd be a stay at home mom, but for real like out of the house career I'd love to be a famous stylist like Rachel Zoe.

2. What's the one thing you look forward to every day?
Kissing my girls and seeing them usually when I get home from work, since they are usually asleep when I leave.

3. What is your number one, all-time, favorite blog?
I love Kelly's Korner and Sometimes Sweet.

4. Biggest online pet peeve?
I don't really have one!

5. What is your all-time favorite book?
Well I don't get to read often anymore, but I love Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner and of course The Hunger Games.

6. What would your "last meal" be?
Easy- Crab legs and artichokes with lots of melted butter

7. Do you believe in love at first site?
I do because I experienced it with Will!

8. What would your ideal Sunday morning consist of?
Making a nice breakfast, having Will get up and all of us happily head off to church then to a nice lunch afterward.

9. Why do you blog?
I blog to get memories down forever, since I don't scrapbook!

10. If you had to choose one color to wear forever, what would you pick?
Probably gray. I have a lot of gray!

My questions for you:
1. If you could go back in time, would you study something different or have a different career?
2. Why'd you choose your children's names?
3. What's your favorite tv show?
4. How'd you meet your spouse?
5. What's your favorite website?

Golf N' Stuff... Can't Get Enough

We're lucky here in AZ to have Rodeo Break! Two days off to celebrate our AZ heritage. Do you think we'd actually go to the rodeo? Ha! Maybe someday, but yesterday we went to mini golf! Hayden had such a blast hitting the ball then chasing it down. She's gotten a lot of practice at Papa and Grammy's house because they have a little putting green in their backyard.

Hole in one!

"I got it!"

Ella wanted in on the action!

We got in a few arcade games.

Then came the mother of all meltdowns as soon as we got to the car. She was so tired because she woke up at 4 am. Yes, 4 am. She kicked and screamed until she put herself to sleep. What a way to end a fun day.
