8 Things that attract me to a friend
1) they have to be funny!
2) they're just nice
3) someone who likes to talk!
4) someone who's honest, but not in a mean way
5) someone who will gripe with me!
6) but also give me good advice
7) gotta like shopping!
8) they can't be a mean girl, who know the kind that hated you in high school because the guy they liked, liked you. Or they don't like you because of how you dress or petty things like that. :)

8 Random things about me
1) I'm weird! I totally am, and I really actually like it that way!
2) I love being outdoors, just sitting in a park, but camping and all that too!
3) I really really love my husband even though I'm mean to him. (sad huh?)
4) I think I'm somewhat obsessive compulsive, but only on certain weird things.
5) I love to laugh really hard, the kind of laugh that makes your stomach hurt and your eyes water-- I usually only get to laugh that hard with my sister.
7) I'm a nose blower, I have tissue boxes all over my house, I hate it when people sniff all the time- just blow it out!!
8) I hate just sitting at home alone, I truly love to spend time around people just talking and laughing or playing games or whatever!

8 Things I want to do before I die
1) Get David through school
2) Buy a house!
3) Watch my kids grow into happy adults and parents, get married in the temple, go on missions, have babies....oh it will be wonderful
4) Travel to all the different places I'd love to photograph
5) Go back to school, or atleast learn some of the things I really want to, like take a painting class, or singing lessons, or guitar lessons, etc.
6) Get a little discipline on myself, I guess self-control or organization or whatever, does that make sense?
7) Go on a mission with David
8) Learn how to be PATIENT! And to not let things affect me so much!

8 Things I’ve learned this past year
1) Life can be really hard and stressful, but somehow you make it through just fine!
2) I think I have the funniest, unique kids in the world!
3) I'm not sure, but do trials get harder the older you are? (or is it just random?)
4) When you don't have your family close around you, the Lord gives you other people to be "family" with as well.
5) I love being in Young Women's!
6) I thought I knew myself fairly well, but all of a sudden you decide you don't necessarily want to be that person, or not all of them and then comes the work of trying to break bad habits and it can be really hard!
7) I'm not scared to have three kids at all, but every once in awhile I'm terrified I'm going to mess them up so bad!
8) My husband is so much more amazing than I give him credit for, I'm very lucky!

Okay, I will have to make sure I have tissues around you now. I must confess, I am sniffer. It makes my nose hurt if I blow to much....hee, hee.
I'm pretty sure you aren't going to mess up your kids...your a great mom.

I have terrible allergies, so its just something I've had to get used to or else have snot dripping all over the place! :) haha Thanks, although I still worry about messing them up, can't help it!
