11 Random things about me:
1) I had my ears pinned when I was 11yrs old. before that I got called "dumbo" all the time and I never would wear my hair up. don't regret it one bit.

2) I am a Mormon:) Yes I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Only one in my family too. Joined the church when I was 18. My husband is also the only member in his family. Joined when he was 20.

3) I served a full-time mission for my church for 18mos. I did nothing but preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ 12hrs a day, 365 days a year for 18 mos. best thing I ever did!

4) I am the youngest of 3 girls...I'm the wild, crazy, loud, hyper one:)

5) I am an artist. Not just a makeup artist. I draw faces too.

6) I am addicted to my work email account. It has taken my 5yrs but I've weaned myself down to checking it only 5 times a day:)

7) I am addicted to buying new duvet covers from Ikea every 2 mos:) It drives my husband crazy, but nothing can cheer me up the way new bedding can!

8) I have always wanted to be bi-lingual. I might start taking spanish as my husband is fluent.

9) Last week my friend brought me some of those yummy kraft caramels. they were SO good, I found myself eating them in the shower. Because obviously the length of my shower was too long to go without having one.

10) I am a hopeless romantic. I live in fairy tale land in my head sometimes.

4. Do you have siblings? how many and where do you fall?
5. when you were 15, what did you want to be when you "grew up"? did you do it?
6. Do you have a pet peeve? something that just REALLY gets under your skin? My husband hates the sound of chewing and I just don't get it.
7. whats your middle name?
8. If you had 1 Million dollars to donate to ANY cause...what would it be?
9. What is the one talent you WISH you had, but don't feel like you do? (mine is singing)
10. do you have a most embarrassing moment? that you are willing to share? ;););)
11.You can do any act of random kindness (anonymously), money isn't an issue, what do you do?


  1. Ok -the similarities continue! I was baptized when I was 18 too. How crazy is that? And I am definitely a member of the hopeless-romantic-fairytale club. Maybe even president. :) I can't wait to meet you in person one day. :) Hugs!!!!!


  2. Aw LOVE it thanks for the tag, friend!

    I wish you lived close by, I'd want to be your bff. You are like the hardest working girl that I know...I really admire how you've just taken this running thing and completely taken off with wings.

    I am going to fill this out as soon as I catch up my blog stuff, I've been slacking big time recently!

    1. oh you are nice....I am feeling incredibly slow right now...post on this later today maybe:) where DO you live? san fran? I can'g keep track of where everyone is!!lol

  3. You are only 5'4???? What?! You look like you are 6 feet tall girl! I guess I am an inch taller than you. :-)

    I like getting new bedding too, just bought new sheets tonight.

    I also just realized your husband is a chiropractor. LOL. You will have my new blog post. I was soooooo freaked out to go for the first time on Tuesday of this week, I was SHAKING! As of tomorrow, I will have gone 4 times, I am like a professional now. :D

  4. Love these types of posts. It's fascinating what people come up with. Thanks for tagging me!

    Question about #3....I had a few Mormon friends growing up, but don't know much about the faith. I hope you don't mind me asking, but I thought only men did missions? Kind of like a right of passage.

    It makes sense they would expand it to women though. What did it involve and where did you serve?

    1. Hey girl!! You are partly right. Men are definitely more encouraged to go but a woman is never discouraged of she wants to go. After I had sister missionaries teach me about our faith it changed my life so much that I new I wanted to serve a mission. I actually met my husband before my mission. He had gotten home from his about 9 mos earlier and I fell inlove with him and felt a deep connection. I felt like he was meant to be my husband. I was torn. I prayed again about a mission and got. Clear strong peaceful feeling that it was the right choice for me to go. We broke up. Didn't really talk for 2 yrs and were engaged 3 mos after I got home:). When something is meant to be the Lord will make sure it happens. We got to fall in love twice and I still got to serve my mission.
      I was called to the east coast and my mission covered nova scotia, PEI, new Brunswick and new found land:). It changed my life. I had such personal sacred experiences on my mission that I could never deny there is a God in heaven and that He is our father. He made sure I knew He was personally aware of me and I am so thankful for that time I got to focus on serving him and his children and nothing else:)

      If you ever have any other questions about our faith I would be open to doing my best to answer them:)


  5. I love your conviction in your faith. It's always amazing to see the way he works when you put your trust in him

    The missions sound very challenging, but that's what make them so rewarding right? :)


I love hearing from you!!
