Random...



Ok so crazy Jodi tagged me on her blog so I guess I'll keep this thing going.. sort of. I'm supposed to share 7 random and/or weird facts about myself. So here we go!
1. I am deathly afraid of clowns. They scare the crap out of me and I blame my Mom. Who the hell lets their kid watch It anyway?!
2. I love to cook. I know - who'd have thought, huh?! Lately I've been doing a lot of it though and I think (Doug's rave reviews usually confirm it) that I'm getting pretty good at it!

3. I have 3 best friends. I know on my last post I spoke of Crystal and she is one of them. The other two are Meda and Sodavy. Believe it or not, we've all been very close since high school. Not talk on the phone every day kind of close, but we try to get together regularly and they each know more about me than anyone else. I wouldn't have it any other way. How many people can seriously say they're still best friends with anyone from high school?!

4. I am agnostic/atheist. Leaning towards the first, but as a teenager I was adamantly atheist. Sorry if it pisses some of you off but if it does, you're not my true friend anyway. If you ever want to ask me about it, feel free but don't expect a debate because I'm not going to defend myself to anyone! I get that enough from certain people.. GRR!

5. I'm BLUNT. If you didn't already notice. And opinionated. Although being married to Doug (and thus his family) has taught me great patience and tolerance in my age. I've learned to pick my battles (sort of..) and bite my tongue when before I would lay into people on exactly what I think of them. Unless someone is a close friend or family, I generally don't care what people think of me.

6. I am a history nerd. If in doubt, read my post on seeing the Declaration of Independence here. I took AP American History and AP European History in high school by choice. If that doesn't scream nerd I don't know what does! Although part of it could be attributed to the crush I had on the Euro teacher.. hmm...

7. I love being a Mom. Anyone who has known me for at least 10 years pick up your jaw right this second! When I was a teenager I swore up and down I wasn't getting married until at least 30 (ahem, married at 19!) and I was definitely never having kids. They just weren't my thing. They're loud, stinky, they don't listen, etc, etc. It took him five years to convince me that maybe I might kinda want one after all, but I am SO glad I listened. Tyson is the best thing to ever happen to me and I wouldn't trade him for the world. And for the record, all those things still annoy the hell out of me but somehow I am slightly more patient with them. Now it's more the stupid parents that irritate me!

So now I tag 7 (or so) people and then I will stalk your blogs and learn random things about you. I tag: Brittany, Lonna, Chelsea, Tom, Christy and Missy!

OK, Ok I'll do the TAG thing, (eventually, LOL). The blue tonuges from Hyrum are from some fruit roll ups we took, they had tongue tatoos on them, so of course we had to play.

MCF - lunch was awesome. You are a kindred spirit, for sure. BTW - Connor is taking AP European History too. LOL.

Tyson is as cute as they get. Love that face!!
