I betcha didn't know this....

Okay. I got tagged by Kansas yesterday. I have 6 insignificant things about me. I tried to think of ones that not a lot of people know about me. There is one answer that I probably shouldn't share, but what the heck, why not? Just don't judge me to harshly:)

1. I cannot dance AT ALL! But when I get in the car with my kids, I turn up the music and we all dance. I love that I can do it front of them. They are so cute to watch too. They are the 2 people on the planet that think I have good moves!

2. Every week Ryan plays cards with the boys. So that is my night I put the kids to bed early and catch up on the shows/movies that I would be too embarrassed to watch in front of him. That way I don't get made fun of!

3. Everyone knows I enjoy cooking. But when it comes to cutting up veggies I am totally OCD
about cutting them all the same size. This makes prep time quite a bit longer. It drives Ryan nuts and he always tries to take over!

4. Anytime I am indoors without my shoes on, I have to wear socks. I hate not having them on my feet. I am fine with going sockless if I have shoes on, but I hate being barefoot. If I take a pair off, then I have to put a clean pair on the next time (like if I put a clean pair on in the morning then get in the shower, I have to put a clean pair on again). It's kind of weird, I know.

5. My ideal date with my hubby would be if we went somewhere outdoors (like golfing or fishing) then out to dinner. I love pasta and mexican food. Those would be my top choices, although Ryan's would be Chinese food. But we would compromise. These dates never really happen since we have 3 kids now and it would be hard to find a babysitter all day, but that is why it would be my ideal date.

6. Okay... here goes. My little secret. To bad I didn't know then what I know now! ( I probably did know but didn't care much at the time.)
I have a constant reminder of my little wild streak I went through when I was a teenager. It is on my back. Luckily, I don't have to see it all the time. Only when I get out of the shower.

Cassie, Ashley, Bonnie, Lyndsey, Keri, Christy & Carlie, I'm hoping you'll all do this tag.

What Haley thinks of me...

A while back, my friend had this post on her blog. I thought it was cute so I decided to ask Haley the same questions. Cassie, Lyndsey (if Lucy can do it) & Keri: I am tagging you!

Birthday fun...

Every month for someone's birthday my friends from my ward and I go out and do something fun. We usually go out to eat. This month it was my birthday, so we went to one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. I am so fortunate to live in such a great place
where I have met so many friends.

little milestones....

Hooray! Isaac has been trying to reach his little feet for a couple of weeks now. He could never grab a hold of them, but today I looked over at him and he had a hold of both of them. He has been trying so hard so it is quite an accomplishment!

Ryan and I went on a date Saturday night. Ashley & Tyson babysat for us. When we got back, Ashley was drawing pictures for Haley to color. The next morning, Haley was drawing the same picture. I thought she did a good job duplicating it. She loves coloring, drawing, cutting things out and making things. She's always drawing me pretty pictures.

Today was Haley's first day of preschool. This is her second year and she loves it so much. She is excited to go three days this year instead of two. I don't know how I am going to handle kindergarten next year. I am dreading it. I know it will be okay and she is going to love it, but I am scared to let her go and to trust everyone else to take care of her. She is growing up way too fast!
