For Thanksgiving this year, we decided to road trip out to Provo where we could spend Thanksgiving with the Carlson-Brown Family, since we will be spending Christmas in Phoenix! What a blast! It was so fun to visit all of Tyler's siblings that are at BYU, go to a football game, get a pedicure with my sister in laws, do some shopping, visit old friends and see all our favorite Provo hot spots! We hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving.... All out love and Thanks!

I've Been Tagged...muliple times...opps!

I've been tagged!

This is a different tag, so here are the rules: A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.B. Each player lists 6 little-known facts/habits about themselves. C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Here are a couple thing that you may not know about me, if you already knew, sorry to bore you, but I was TAGGED okay???

1. I have some sort of serious phobia of EXPIRED FOOD! I will not touch any food item that is within 3 days of it's expiration date! This cause's quite a stir around our house because my Husband will eat a block of cheese covered in MOLD! I think it all started back when I was living at home and my mom would send one of us girls into the food storage for some needed food item and we would realize later that it had expired 07/1982!!!! Ahhhh! Seriously this topic gives me quivers just thinking about it!

2. I love to DECORATE! I wake up every morning thinking about how I can improve or decorate my house... i drive around town looking through model homes, sneak through all the homes in construction in my neighborhood to see what finishes they have chosen.. am the first in line to buy Parade of Homes tickets... I go to bed thinking about my house, other peoples houses, and people I don't know houses! I know scary! I picked this up from my mom who had always kept such a beautiful home, now if i could keep my house as clean as her i would be doing great!

3. The biggest thrill of my entire day is going to the MAILBOX! I have always loved getting mail since I was a little girl! When I was little I had my mom make me a copy of the mail key so I could ride my bike to the mailbox, put something in there for myself and go back 10 minutes later and pick it up! It's like getting a little gift everyday! I have always wanted one of those personal mailboxes in my front yard....Where do you have to move to get one of those by the way?

4. I am deathly afraid of AIRPLANES!! I know most of you that have flown with me are dying laughing because it's usually quite the entertainment to sit next to me on a plane! I have never had a near death experience on a plane, I don't know anyone who has had a bad experience, I just have this fear and I fly all the time. I nearly had a Nervous breakdown when Tyler and I went to Belize this last spring, and we had to fly on a little crop duster across the ocean and land on a 7 foot wide dirt runway..I am not kidding this almost caused us a divorce!! Thankfully someone introduced me to a little pill called Zanex, and to my surprise we made it in one piece!

5. I love being a MOMMY!! I am always so amazed that I am a mom! Wow! What a blessing to have two adorable little healthy mini me's! Everyday is an adventure around here. I am constantly laughing at the cute little things that fly out of their mouths. I love sitting back and watching them when they have no idea I am watching because I can't believe how smart and articulate they can be! There are days (hopefully I am not the only mom that has these days!) that I wonder what it would have been like if I had waited longer between the two, got my degree first, traveled the world with my husband.... then I see my kids happy, healthy, playing together, crying for the other when one is not here and I realize I wouldn't change a thing.. My life is PERFECT!

6. My best friend is my HUSBAND! I know this is so cheesy, and no I am not trying to win brownie points for those diamond earrings I have been wanting... Wink Wink! Just Kidding!! (My husband wont even read this) I can't believe that I married such an amazing guy! Tyler is so helpful with the kids, romantic, smart, thoughtful, sensitive and adventurous! I am sure he hates the fact that I drag him around all day Saturday to Michaels, Nordstrom's, and Target running errands because I am on the buddy system, but everything is so much more fun when he is around! I can't imagine my life without him and often wonder what I did to deserve him... I guess the begging was worth it....J/K

I tag Tarah, Sunny, Alyssa and Megan! Have fun girls!
