What I was doing 10 years ago? - Well, I was 19 and had been married for 5 months. We lived down in the GETO of Provo. {Seriously it was kind of scary}. In the cutest house that Josh and his dad had remodeled. I worked at Murdock Travel as a travel agent {a job that sometimes I wish I still had, just for the perks}. And Josh was starting to expand Holliman Siding. I loved being a newlywed. I thought I was sooo cool, because I was the only one of my friends that was married. And Josh loved to go riding {his motorcycle} with Quinn every weekend. Something he never has time to do anymore.

5 years ago? - We lived in are first Lindon house {yes there was more then one}. Stone was 4 and Swayze was 1 and a half. And I was barley pregnant with Steel {BIG SURPRISE}. We went to Lake Powell at about this same time in are new boat we had just barley got. Two days into the trip I started to bleed really bad. Josh packed everything up and drove me to St. George {to his mom and dads house} We called the doctor and he said I had to stay there, that I couldn't even get in the car to drive home. We stayed for about two days tell I stopped bleeding, then drove that long drive home. By that time I was sure I had miscarried and was very upset. As soon as we got home my doctor sent me right to Orem Community Hospital to do a ultrasound, and there was a heart beat. {it gives me chills just to think about my life without Steel.} But I had a tear in my placenta and had to be on bed rest for several weeks until it had time to heal. Needless to say the boat got sold...

1 year ago? - We were living in are trailer in my mom and dads backyard {and YES I said trailer} with 4 kids. My mom and dad were remolding their whole upstairs when we sold are second Lindon house so we weren't able to move in with them. {I think it was all part of the plan, they didn't want us in with them}. Josh was building are new home in Pleasant Grove, and pulling all nighters so he could get me out of that damn trailer. The kids were loving every minute of living in Grandma's and Grandpa's backyard. Needless to say the trailer got sold right after we moved in.

Yesterday? - Lets see, got Stone up early so he could go hike the G with the Scouts. Then cleaned house and got ready for KOTM to come. Which they never showed up. So I went to Target and Old Navy to get ready for Washington D.C. Then Stone had his last Baseball game of the season. So we went to that {very intense}. They lost, but finished 3rd overall for Highland, Alpine, and Cedar Hills. Which I thought was pretty good. Came home made dinner, Garlic Chicken Farfalle and Rhodes rolls {sooo good}. Went tanning then came home blogged and went to bed.

5 Favorite Snacks? - Diet Dr. Pepper {could not live without it}, Cinnamon Bears, Rice Crispie Treats, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice Cream, Daylight Donuts, Cheddar Sun Chips, any Cookies, my Chocolate Cake, and homemade Dessert. Lets see is that 5 cause I can keep going?? I also am with Ellery on the Fiber One Bars they really are sooo good.

5 Favorite Books? - Again I'm with Ellery I this, I absolutely love to read but never get the chance. Plus, whenever I get a new book I can't put it down tell I finish it {drives Josh crazy}. I love anything by Stephanie Myers.

5 Places to Runaway? - Mexico {anywhere with a beach}, St. George, Shopping {by myself}, Tanning, the Shower.

5 Bad Habits? - O, man I got alot of them. Popping all my joints {toes, ankles, knees, hips, fingers, back, and neck, not even kidding). I have to iron everything even all the kids clothes {this includes jeans, play clothes, sheets, and lingerie}. Swearing, even though they come out so natural you hardly even notice that I swear. Picking at my eyelashes {man me and Ellery are a lot a like}. Being a little OCD with they way the house looks and the way the kids look. Worrying way to much about the way I look. -O.K. that is 6 I can stop now, even though I could keep going.-

5 Things I would Never wear? - I do love Fashion so there isn't alot I wouldn't at least try. But I can't stand anything to tight, or to over the top.

5 Pet Peeves? - Clothes that aren't ironed. Not having my house clean. When my kids are out of control hyper {seriously I can't handle it}. Slow drivers. When people at the store or other places are just RUDE for no reason. And last of all when Ellery doesn't answer her phone.

5 Things I Enjoy? - Decorating my home. Going away on the weekends camping, or to St. George or the Motorcycle races anywhere just to get away. Shopping {without kids}. Being pampered {pedicures, manicures, make-up done, hair done, massages}. Date nights with Josh. Watching my kids do things they LOVE.

5 Favorite T.V. shows? - Good Things Utah, Divine Design, So You Think You Can Dance, AMA Motorcycle Racing {I really get into it}, TMZ. I love to TIVO them all and watch them when kids go to bed.

5 Famous People I would like to Meet? - David Beckham, George Clooney, Josh Duhmel, Derks Bentley all because there sooo Freaking Hot!!! O and Ricky Carmichael, not cause he is Hot but because he really is amazing.

5 People I want to Tag? - Julie Lewis, Cindi L, Ali O, {because she hasn't did a post forever}, Ellery R, and Tiff E.

You need to tell Ellery R. that I really want to check out her blog, but can't get her e-mail to go through. Tell her
Oakley thinks that is pretty funny how much the same we are!
