6 Random Things About Me

I got tagged by Dani to share 6 random things about me.  I don't think I'm that exciting, but here goes...

1.  I hate scrapbooking!  I always feel like a loser mom, because I don't get into scrapbooking.  I even joined a scrapbooking club, because I thought I was supposed to like scrapbooking.  I ended up just spending a lot of money on stuff I don't use.  I just put my photos into an album.  Boring, 
I know!

2.  I love to work in the yard.  Sam and I love to spend Saturdays planting, cleaning, mowing, etc.  I guess it is because we were both raised in families where yard work was a priority.  Halle even gets into the yard work, but her idea of yard work is digging for worms and potato bugs.

3.  I love reading!  Sam always gets bugged when I get a new book, because I completely close out the world.  I have a hard time closing books!  I am currently reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer.

4.  I am a sports fanatic!  I guess it's because I grew up with brothers, but I know a lot about sports.  I hit all of the BYU message boards, read the sports page first, and listen to sports talk radio.  I guess it's only fitting that I met Sam waiting in line to buy BYU football tickets.

5.  I am a home remodeler.  When we first bought our home, we thought it would be fun to fix it up together.  Well, it hasn't necessarily been fun, but I love the results.  So far, we've replaced the interior doors and baseboard, added a bathroom, painted and painted and painted again, and most recently, installed new carpet.  Lucky for us, Sam's cousin Brad provides all of the tools and the "know how."

6.  I absolutely love Costco.  One of our favorite things to do as a family is to go to Costco and wander the aisles.  Sam always tells me that I can buy anything as long as it comes from Costco.  Even Halle likes it!  She always tells Devin that her favorite thing to do is "go to Costco, get hot dog."

Now, it's your turn.  I tag Bethany, Alison, Dede & Megan.

Show pictures of your home remodeled. We are doing a few things to ours right now too. Even though we will probably move in a year or so.

Hi Ashley! I'm so excited you have a blog. And I'm more excited you have "1 1/2 kids". That is so cool. I haven't seen you forever. Your little girl is getting so big and she's so cute.

The only one of those things that seem "random" is the sports thing. But after living with Ryan for six years, I don't blame you!

WooHOO, I am so glad you started a blog, now we can keep in touch a little better. Your daughter is beautiful! How old is she? Did you hear we are moving to Redmond in July? Crazy huh. Why aren't you teaching next year? Sorry, lots of questions. I will add you to my blog list....Yay!

Hi, Ashley. I just stumbled on your blog and wanted to say hi. Your little girl is so cute! Good luck with the new baby. Tell your mom that I said Hi. It is weird to think that she isn't in Salina anymore.
