My bff Shalyn over at Laugh Until Your Cheeks Hurttagged me in this fun little questionnaire :) I've known Shay since we were in middle school, but it was so fun reading her answers...got to know her a little better! And if you want a good laugh (i KNOW you do) go and check out her blog!
Without further adieu...
FOUR shows I watch:
(heads up: i don't have cable...)
...semi-old school, but my all time favorite. The hubby actually got me a set of all 10 seasons a couple years ago for Christmas...boy did he score major brownie points! :)
2. The Office
...if Michael Scott's character leaves (that's what I've been hearing) I'm going on a hunger strike!
3. Biggest Loser
...I love seeing the transformation INSIDE the people...their whole demeanor changes :) Very inspiring!
4. Extreme Makeover Home Edition
...I cry on almost every episode. Adam and I love this show.
FOUR things I am passionate about: 1. My marriage
...doesn't get much better than marrying your best friend. It takes work, but I'm up for the challenge of staying in the newlywed stage for life, scratch that, FOREVER! :)
2. My faith
...I feel so blessed to have the knowledge of my living Savior. And that I can keep learning about Him inthis book.
...I am VERY passionate (and still extremely intimidated) about being a good mom and raising my Brooks (and future children) in a LOVING home, teaching them good principles by my example. I love my job :)
...in no way am I photographer (in my dreams) but I love capturing photos of people I care about...whether it's at home, on vacation, or on a fun date. Photos hold memories still to enjoy over and over.
FOUR phrases I say a lot:
1. "What's love got to do with it?"..."Everything."
...Adam & I ask each other this all the time
...i don't know why
3. "good job buddy!"
...praising Brooks for his accomplishments. From eating solids to shimmying around the couch to a "good" diaper (lol), I'll be his cheerleader for life
...only Adam would know that one ;)
FOUR things I have learned from the past:
1. Don't ever stop smiling...you never know who's falling in love with it. ;)
...funny story. Back in college I had a guy friend who worked with me. When I started working at the little smoothie/bakery shop onBYU-Idaho's campus, I'd get kind of stressed out when I couldn't figure out how to use the register, or forget what ingredients were in which smoothies, the line would get backed-up...and I wanted happy customers! One day my friend told me that I should smile more, sometimes he'd catch me "in-the-zone" and I'd look way too intense. From then on I put more of an effort into smiling and it made my time at work, and life in general, that much better! AND I just so happened to meet my future husband at the smoothie shop the next year. Was it 'cause I was smiling?? who knows ;)
2. Forgive and forget...
...if my husband can forgive me for having the messiest closet on the face of the planet, then I think I can forgive him for going to work and leaving the oatmeal & brown sugar open. every. morning. lol
3. ALWAYS follow a prompting to help someone.
...we're here to help each other.
...believe it baby
FOUR things I did yesterday:
1. Went to a baby shower
2. Made a trip to the grocery store with little B
...for tonight's dinner (pot roast, mmmm)
3. Baby-sat/Hung out with 4 awesome boys.
...Adam & I love those kids. And they're so great with Brooks! We had fun making Ghost [of Christmas Past] Rolls (a post on that later)

FOUR places I would love to visit:
...I'll be lucky enough to have my own personal translator too: Adam
