Tracie's questions for me:

1. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
This is a hard one to answer.... I almost want to say right here where I am... Where my family is.
I might like to live somewhere that it doesn't snow, but for now... Utah is the place for me.

Rocky Road

Before kids: Hawaii Now: Disney World after a Disney Cruise
4.What is your most embarrassing moment?
I was at my Grandpa's funeral. I had just gone to the bathroom... My brother in law kindly pointed out that my skirt was tucked into my pantyhose. That was at the viewing. The following day at the actual funeral my 3 month old daughter had a blowout a pooped all over me, my cousin and the floor.... Good times.
5.What is your least favorite food that you still make your kids eat?
Vegetables. Any kind.... if it is a vegi.. I do not want it. Although I do not enforce it very well with my kids either.
6. Why do you blog?
I started blogging as an online journal for my kids. I plan to print out 3 copies each year. I will give them to them when they get married :)
7. What is your favorite blog post?
My favorite blog post and now my least favorite blog post was when we decided to adopt. I am still an advocate for the orphans. My adoption did not go through as planned, and I am still dealing with a broken heart. I still love my adoption family, and support them all.  This is the post where I announced my other blog... An adoption blog that led me to many amazing people. I have some blog posts of others that I love also, but do not have permission to share.
8. When do you find time to blog?
When my kids are in bed or at school.... I sometimes take the time to blog when my husband is watching a movie with them... I am not a big movie person.
9. If married, how long did you date your spouse before you married? If not married, how long would you date someone before your considered marrying them?
I only truly dated my husband about 3 months before we were engaged and 8 months before we were married. Although I had known him 5 and a half year by the time we married. We were best friends. We were 12 and 13 when we met :)
10.Do you have any phobias?
Several.... I am afraid of the dark. I have a fear of something happening to my kids.... I am over protective.
11.What is your favorite number and why?
18..... It it the date my oldest daughter was born.... Also if you take my second daughter's birthdate and minus out my youngest birthdate it is 18.... plus if you add them all together and divide them by 3 it is 18. Sorry I like math :)
