About Me!

getting to know me - getting to know all about me... (la! la! la!) Isn't there a song like that on the King and I? Well this post is LONG OVER DUE! I haven't posted anything in a while... I've honestly had a hard time thinking of something... blame it on my pregnancy brain-deadness I guess.

Anyhow, here we go...

I am 28 years old and my birthday is May 18th (Same as George Strait - who growing up loving all things country western from clothes, music and every day life that made me pretty happy when I found out!)

I've been married to my hubby for almost 5 years... Totally need to think of something fun and creative for this anniversary... better call Granny and make sure she's available for babysitting :)

I grew up in a small small very small town out in the middle of no where - we rode the bus for about 45 minutes to and from school. Population sign for the longest time said 26... & I was related to everyone! That is why my mom and I joke - she had to go all the way to Nevada to find her husband and mine came from Alaska! To see a lot more about small town life where I grew up and our family check out my mom's blog (Idaho Round Pen) click here!

I played most sports growing up and loved it! Volleyball, Basketball, Softball, Track and we all rodeoed. I played Volleyball and Basketball in High School up until my Junior year and that year I decided I was going to graduate early so I took on a very big load of junior and senior classes to help me accomplish that. I also just wanted to practice ropin' as much as possible - so every day that year when we got home from school we were off to the practice pen out in front of our house. Lopin' horses and ropin' the dummy, tyin' our goat (all of our goats and we've probably gone through 10-15 were named Elvis - we're just quirky like that) - I was in the top 10 for Breakaway Ropin (Girls calf ropin') in Idaho my Junior and Senior year. I loved it!

I have two little sisters - I'm the oldest. I'm very protective!

I'm 26 weeks along with our second son... We still don't have a name... We're struggling with this one so far - BUT we don't share till their born anyway so I guess it doesn't really matter any way. Come on November - Mama is cookin'!

I am truly in love with beachy type cottage decor. I love home design and decor - I think I'm obsessed! I really haven't decided what I want to be when I grow up as far as besides being a mama. I've really felt pulled in this direction... I guess you never know where the Lord will use you... for now, I'm content.

I'm totally a girlly girl - just ask my family... I hate being dirty. and I already have my hair thingy box all ready for when I ever have a girl... will it ever happen? or will I forever have to get my girlly-fix off of my nieces? We'll see :)

I wish I was more of a do it all kind of gal... I'm workin' at it! I wished I knew more about DIY home stuff, gardening and such. I do love cookin' and I'm okay at it - I mean my husband and son are still alive... right? Totally a Martha wannabe :)

I love a good drama movie! My favorite movies are You've Got Mail and Step Mom - which I realized last night are both based in New York... So I think I also have a unknown obsession for wanting to travel there.

So excited for the new Meryl Streep movie Julie/Julia :) LOVE IT!

Favorite actors - can't think of any right now... duh! Liam Neeson is probably one...

actresses - Amy Adams and Rachel McAdams (isn't that weird they both have Adams in their last name?)

I don't read! Yet another thing I wished I did... I heart kid's books but can not for the life of me sit down with a "good book" for one - I have a toddler and that just doesn't happen for me and two I start thinking about anything and everything else. When it comes to reading my Bible I honestly have to pray about staying focused and asking God to help my mind not wander... I'm working on it :)

favorite Bible verse : Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the Desires of your heart Psalms 37:4

I'm a huge fan of going through clutter and junk drawers and making a Youth Ranch pile to donate! It is invigorating!! BUT I have to be careful - sometimes I think I offend people when I do it :( Sometimes I'll get something from someone that I have many of so I am not afraid to donate or re gift... I think that should be okay... am I the only one?

I love coffee! I mean I love it! I guess I got that from my dad and Grandma Pattie (she heats coffee up from her coffee pot in the microwave that has been sitting there since yesterday - she's adorable & my dad's coffee has to be strained through a dish towel before I can drink it... grounds anyone?)

I love arts and crafts!

I go a little organizing crazy when I'm nesting... just ask my husband...

I'm a huge fan of eating out... terrible I know but I love the whole getting waited on thing... My husband calls me a princess... Aren't I a Queen though?

that is all for now - I'll write more next time.. toodles

LOVE this...
Ropin'? you are too cute...
I am with you on the coffee and organizing (though I just obsessively do it)

And maybe your obsession with "Adams" means you want to name your son Adam. :)

I love Amy Adams. And I can NOT wait to see J & J! Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!!!

It was fun to read through these! I hate to admit it, but I'm also a big re-gifter. I think if I'm not going to enjoy something, then it should be passed along to someone that will!
