25 Things

Thought I might as well post this on my blog as well as my Facebook :)

1. I'm pretty proud of the fact that I went to OU and didn't drink at all and wasn't even asked to. It is possible, fellow Mormons.

2. I do not like cooking. I really only cook so that I can eat.

3. I love to eat. I eat anything.

4. If I had the money, I would eat out at different restaurants at least 3 times a week.

5. Reed and I are fans of the book Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey. We are following his baby steps and will be out of consumer debt (credit cards and student loans) by 2011.

6. I know more about college football and basketball than my husband.

7. I do not like the Buckeyes. Blame it on my parents who were in the marching band at BYU and had a rude run-in with the OSU marching band.

8. I took French my last year of college because I couldn't bear the thought of Reed being better than me at something.

9. One of my biggest pet peeves is when people IM or text without proper punctuation and capitalization.

10. I think girls make the best first child and eldest sibling. Hence, I am glad that Lara is my first-born :)

11. We picked the name Genevieve Noelle way before we knew she was going to be born on Christmas Eve (which was that morning).

12. I love my job as a music therapist and I am thankful for my high school piano teacher for telling me about the field.

13. I don't mind a little mess in my house but at work I cannot leave until everything is straightened and put away. I'm not sure why, that's just how I operate.

14. I cannot drive backwards or parallel park. At least not very well.

15. I never had a best friend growing up until I met Lara (my daughter's namesake) during pre-college.

16. I knew I wanted to marry Reed when I saw him after he came home from his mission.

17. The reason I didn't like Reed before his mission is because he was too quiet and he made believe that he had a pretend girlfriend named Gretchen. Kind of a turn-off.

18. I used to get up early on Saturday mornings during college so that I could watch Blue's Clues.

19. I sing all the time- at work, in the car, at home, etc. But when I don't know the words to a song, I just make them up.

20. Someday I want to be a stay-at-home mom but I haven't felt that it's time yet. Maybe after the third child, or maybe when we have to move and I won't have an on-site daycare anymore.

21. I love to burn candles, or just make a big bonfire at my parents farm.

22. I do not have a very good sense of smell. It's a great blessing to have when you have kids in diapers. I just have to remember to check them every once in a while.

23. I love musicals and to anyone who thinks that they are not realistic- my life is a musical.

24. It takes me a long time to "get" jokes.

25. I want to own a pick-up truck someday. Maybe a Tundra or Tacoma. Preferably a big one with an extended cab.
