some {ramblings}

 I saw Jonie had put up some awesome facts about herself inspired by Amy at the Idea Room and Ashley from Little Miss Momma and thought it would be fun to play!

So, if we're going to be bff's here's what you need to know:
1. I am the second of seven children. I married the seventh of seven children. We both have no intention of having seven children. Ever. :)
As a result of being last, Hubby's family is significantly larger than mine. We don't see them all together often, but they're still fun. ;)
Hubby is the only implant thus far in my family. He fits in really well, or maybe my family is just being nice. My family is hilarious. Sometimes I don't know where my brothers get their wit. Parents? Probably.

2. Hubby and I will have our first child to make it through pregnancy in a few weeks.  A little girl who will be spoiled beyond all belief I'm sure. She'll be the first grandchild on my side.

3. Hubby and I met in Logan. He had planned on going to school there till he met me, and we got married within a semester, so there was no need for the transfer.  :) We were also married there.


4. I got my bachelors degree in 2009 from Utah State University in Political Science and Philosophy. What that has to do with crafting and photography? No idea.

5. Oh, I work as a wedding photographer. Good times.


6. I have lived in South America, Washington DC, and Utah. I like them all for different reasons. Utah is great because I actually can park at the store I want to go to. And have a car.

7. I am LDS. My faith is a huge part of who I am, and a huge part of my marriage. It makes me unreasonably happy and helps me through the hard times. :)

8. I have a fascination with gray.

9. I love to read and my shelves are full of books. I am obsessed with  Jane Austen and love Charles Dickens. My wedding dress was even styled after the Austen era. I also enjoy J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. You will also find the Harry Potter and Hunger Game Series there. I have no intention of reading the Twilight Series. The movies make me be satirically witty. Sorry.


10. I was a Cache County Dairy Princess. Yep. For some reason it was big at the time. And then you win you think you are cool because it comes with a crown, tiara, and lots of parades and appearances. That is, you think you're cool until someone reminds you that you are a cow queen.

11. I once met Ted Kennedy in an elevator. That was awkward. I also worked in the same  building as Obama and saw him in the hall. This was before the whole 'president' thing. There were no secret service.


12. I am a published poet. Yep that's right, published. You'll find my poem wedged in with a bunch of other 7th graders in a nationwide book. I am COOL.

13. Mostly I just love to laugh.

14. I once was involved in a high speed chase, but not with the cops. We were being chased by some neighbors of a house that we had recently toilet papered.

15. I have self diagnosed ADD. And OCD. I can't sit still very long. I also have to have the pillows on the couch perfectly fluffed. My husband will sit on them and then get up just because he thinks its funny. And I can't watch really thought provoking movies before bedtime. Because I won't be able to sleep because I can't stop thinking about them.

16. I'm kind of a nerd.

17. I think Matt Damon is, like, the hottest man on earth. Next to my husband of course.

18. If I was what I wanted to be in the third grade, I would be a zookeeper. Glad that didn't work out.

19.  Kite flying is my favorite sport. Is it a sport? I hope so.

20. I love to meet people. And get to know people. So please leave a comment and tell me about yourself, or put a link to your own post and I will totally come stalk you!! Link up and share the love!

Congrats on the baby! You and your hubby will have so much fun with her! I love both my kids, but playing with my daughter is so much fun. Although, I do like to spend time with my son by bowling on the Wii. Ok, so they're both fun. Who knew? Just kidding! Anyway, love your list! Although I've never seen any of the Twilights, I just make fun because it's funny to see die-hards reactions to it! (Well, that would be one of my sisters reactions!)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Your right...families come in all forms and families are families know matter how they are! :) Thanks for stopping by my page! Have a wonderful and blessed New Year!

I totally stalk people who leave comments, too. Stumbled on your blog looking for something and got sucked in. I had a baby girl on January 25th, so our little girls are practically twins! :)
