Being Tagged... Thanks Bekki

Ok, so I can barely get my other posts going and then Bekki tags me for this... may be short and sweet, but I'm always up for a challenge.

Rules: 3 joys, 3 fears, 3 goals, 3 obsessions, and 3 random facts
tag 5 people at the end


1. Ben and Jerry's Half Baked Ice cream. It's the perfect blend of desserts!

2. Sleep... I seem to be a little deprived these days.

3. My kids... When they do that one thing right or stand up for that one thing you never thought they would or just as they grow and are able to do more. It's spectacular to see.

4. My husband. I don't give him enough credit, but he is truly amazing as a father and as the absolute best husband ever! Thanks Clint!


1. Snakes, Lizards, or any other creepy crawlies. Hate them so much. My kids have asked when I plan on dying so they can get one.... Once again, thanks Clint!

2. Offending someone just because I'm trying to be funny or just don't know how to communicate what I want to say.

3. Dying before my kids are raised. I worry about what kind of lasting impact that would have on them.


1. Being debt free. (Amen Bekki!).

2. Masters Degree. (This of course is on hold for a little while).

3. Getting my house to the point where we can just try and keep it up instead of having massive fix-it-up projects. And to actually finish those projects instead of just doing the major portion and trying to finish it up 4 years later!

Current Obsessions

1. Exercise... I know, weird coming from me, but I'm finally at the point where I'm willing to pay the price to be healthy and weigh less...

2. Garage Sales. Didn't think I would become addicted when I first started, but I think that I did. Glad it's summer and people don't do as many so it's not as hard when I can't go out!

3. Surviving the summer and trying not to kill my kids when they fight so much.

Random Facts

1. We love playing games and being social. This must come from my insecurities as a child.

2. I absolutely hate the heat. I think it stifles my spirit. I was meant to live somewhere cooler, but can't bring myself to move because I love everything about where we are living right now, except that.

3. I am not very good at showing my true feelings for fear of looking vulnerable. I actually feel things very deeply, but worry about showing that to other people.

My tags go out to: Marci, Michelle, Lindsay Hansen, Jeanette, and Sheree.

Isaac Dancing

I know this is a little while ago, but it is one of my absolute favorite videos. I taught him everything he knows... well, between both mine and clint's unnatural ability to dance (lol), I don't know where he got it!

This is Katie's Softball swim party. She loves taking Cassie for a swim. Cassie really loves the water, but not being splashed by it. Katie did an awesome job playing softball this year and began to love it... This makes me very happy!

Cassie's Starting to Stand!

Hooray! Cassie is finally starting to take off. She's been a little slow, but it's coming along. Right now she just stands, but walking will be right around the corner!
