1.  If every job paid $50,000 a year, and you had no physical or mental limitations, what would you do?  Ever since the movie Bed of Roses came out, I have thought that delivering flowers has to be one of the best jobs out there.  Not only do you handle something beautiful, you make someone's day too!

2.  What is your current church calling?  What do you like about it?  What have some of your callings been?  I am currently over Activity Days and part of the activities committee.  I love working with the girls in our ward as they prepare for young women's.  As far as activities committee goes, I love working on the activities with Sam.

3.  Name a person you regularly encounter (outside your family) who brightens your day.  I love when Halle's friend Quinsi comes home from kindergarten.  When she comes home, it means I don't have to entertain Halle anymore.

4.  In twenty years, what do you think you will miss most about your life now?  I'll miss having little kids.  I'll miss picking up toys.  I'll miss making cookies with Halle.

5.  What's something you appreciate about your spouse?  Lots of things...I love how he calls me a couple times a day just to tell me he loves me.  I love that he cleans the kitchen because I don't like to.  I love that he wakes up in the middle of the night to talk to me, since I can't sleep anymore (can't get comfortable, pregnancy heartburn, etc.)

6.  What is your favorite routine, household chore?  I don't like cleaning (Sam can attest to that), but if I had to pick one thing, it would be vacuuming.  I love when the carpet has straight lines in it.  

7.  What's a book you return to occasionally (besides the scriptures)?  There's no way I could pick just one.  I return to The DaVinci Code, The Great Gatsby, The Giver, Twilight books (among others).

8.  Favorite Small Pleasure:  On Saturday mornings, Halle comes and climbs into bed with us and we all cuddle and watch the Care Bears.

9.  Favorite time of day?  5:30... Sam comes home from work!

10.  Name a person who performed what they thought was a small act of service, but ended up being a big deal to you:  My mom came and talked to me when I was stressed out a while ago.  I was a mess that day, and she helped a lot.

11.  Name someone who somehow changed your life:  My first (and best) friend at BYU was Lisette.  We had the best time together at school.  Plus, meeting her led to meeting Sam.  So, needless to say, she had a big impact on my life!

12.  Consider what you do each day.  Think of one attribute or trait that you bring to your daily work that is a strength--what is something you do really well?  I am a good listener.  I remember just about everything anyone tells me.

Anyone who wants to play along...go ahead!

Thanks for playing along! I am sorry you have heartburn, that memory is still fresh for me! Hope it goes by fast for you!

Oh man, I get heartburn so so bad. My doc gave me PrevAcid and no more heartburn, you should ask your doc about it. It's great!
