This is a tag Ashley Green tagged me with BEFORE Christmas. I filled it out and for some reason I didn't post it. I looked through my posts today and found it. So keep in mind it was filled out couple months ago... I decided to re post it. Enjoy and do it! I love reading these things.
  • I am. a country kid
  • I want to be healthy
  • I have to fold laundry and pack for our trip home
  • I wish I didn't die my hair black
  • I hate Clutter!
  • I fear that someone will hurt my children...
  • I hear Cache singing "in ex chelseas day ay OH" (angels we have heard on high)as he raids the fridge looking for yogurt that i said he couldn't have until supper.
  • I search for a binkie or burp rag all day. they are always gone.
  • I wonder how babies KNOW when you sit down vs. standing up.
  • I always see pictures .. like all day long, think. that would be the best picture if only i could blink my eyes and take a picture like that. i've even caught myself tilting my head to see the better picture.. sometimes this worries me that i do this..
  • I’m usually a people person who loves company.
  • I’m not happy unless i work out
  • I dance with cache on a daily basis. usually "rock star dance" which means playing the air guitar and running in circles.
  • I sing primary songs with cache.. through out the day.
  • I never have tasted alcohol
  • I rarely swear unless i am almost in a wreck or something
  • I cry when i think about children in a bad home or homeless
  • I’m not always the most positive person when it comes to Devin's dreams and aspirations. I'm working on it though.
  • I lose my sunglasses every other day. And then I find them in the car, my coat pocket or the diaper bag.
  • I’m confused about omega 3 fatty acids and omega 6 fatty acids. both good, i think, some come in fish, or in flax seed, .. i can't keep it straight. And while we are talking about being confused, the types of dietary fiber, soluble vs. insoluble, both good, but which kind is more important, which comes in cereal vs. oatmeal. vs bean and veggies.. aaah frustrating.. I give up.
  • I need to eat less sugar and prepare my lesson for primary.
  • I should get off the computer
  • I dream about living a simple, clean life in the country, with my family,good friends, a great dane, a couple horses, a cherry tree, hard wood floors, big windows, GIANT garden and an amazing tree house. Front porch swing, and sometimes there is a teepee and warm summer nights the smell of bbq and children laughing, and awesome safe neighbors who will go running with me :) or at least on a nice walk. Oh and there are no mosquitos, I dream about this place a lot. Call me wierd, but i know every detail. It's not a big house, but there is a library :) And devin is trying to fit in a soccer field where my horse pasture is...Everyone is invited to come and stay, and believe me you will want too.. except you your not invited ... I don't know you.. but all the rest of you are. Devin will make you breakfast and I'll um.. make your bed, and good conversation, and feed you candy.
  • I tag Cindy, Cher, MOM, Sara Orton, Sarah Leonard, Ashley Spratling. KK, Zana, Nicole. Do you need something to blog about? Your tagged too. OH yes Natalie, it's been a bit. :-)

Cute post Amie! I love reading stuff like that to get to know people better! Hope things are going well in Missouri. We are really going to miss everyone and wish we would've gotten to know you better!

Amie, I am just going to copy your post. I feel the same way about many of your thoughts. Like living in the country and having that sipmle life. We have most of that dream but we do not have the swing on the front porch. I too am also confused about omega 3 and 6. Please let me know if you ever figure it out. What is it about working out? I am so much happier when I do too:) It's those magical endorphins (sp?) gotta love 'em. Thanks for the tag. Have a great Sabbath. Love you guys.

I love you Amy. YOur description of your perfect homestead sounds a lot like mine. Especially the no mosquitos and a fun running buddy. We REALLY need to get together because we're pretty sure we're moving soon. WE'll find out March 19th. Anyway, what are you guys up to, and are you in town, the weeks of March 16th and 23rd? If you're free it would be fun to get Cache and Jillian together to play. Let me know. I just love reading your blog- I relate to so much of what you write, think about, love- like photos:)

Zana said...

It's so good to know we will be neighbors one day. You'll come over often b/c your kids will love our pool with a built in-wrap-around slide & waterfalls. We can share John Deere tractors too.
I just wish I had your same desires when it comes to working poor muscles!

Cindy Spratling said...

Can Ben and I follow you when you move to the clean country and have a porch and a cherry tree and safe neighbors? I will run with you. Ah, that would be the life. Let's build houses next dorr to eachother and Devin and Ben can build the sweetest tree house for the kids and you and I can have a huge garden and make jam and can all day long.

how bout next wednesday the 11th? maybe it'll be warmer and we can go to the park

Mindy said...

As always, love catching up on your blog! GREAT pictures of the kids making cookies, you are a GREAT photographer too--I assume you have a nice camera as well since they look professional. Also, I loved seeing Jennifer's wedding. Of course I didn't know she had gotten married but I'm so glad for it. And it's nice to hear what Darla's up to. Am I a loser because I don't know anything about hardly anyone from high school?

Cher said...

You are so much more interesting than I am. I will do this post asap:) (that means within the next month:)) It was so fun talking to you the other day, I really miss hanging out with you all the time. Good ol' Provo:) Is your heater doing it's job? Hopefully the midwest will warm up soon! Take care!

Cher said...

P.S. did you know they have invented a video camera that fits in your eye like a contact lens? I'm not sure how much it is but after you and Devin get settled down and his practice gets moving, I'm sure you can just drop the change to buy it:)
