Lucky Seven

So I got tagged by my sister in law, so here goes my lucky seven:

Seven things I CAN do:

Fall asleep in 10 seconds flat!- seriously, the minute my head hits the pillow, I am OUT.

Dance the national dance of the Ukraine- Hopak (Back in my college days, I was on the International Folk Dance Ensemble at BYU and made some of my most cherished memoires.)

Make dinner one handed- whether I am holding a baby, talking on the phone, or whatever

Cry in ANY movie- or if anyone else is crying- seriously I am a sympathy crier

Rationalize any purchase- It was on SALE!

Make friends easily- I love talking to people and making new friends, and I love that I have so many old friends that I love to keep in touch with and love so much!

Play with my kids a ton more now that I quit my job! I feel like a new woman!

Seven things I CAN'T do:

Recognize quotes from movies: People are always quoting movies and asking me what it is from-- I NEVER know, unless it is Aaron b/c the only movie he quotes is Back to the Future and I am onto him!

Wrap the cord up on the vaccum cleaner- it gives me chills (like nails on a chalkboard) to re-wind the vaccum cord, so I don't do it and it drives Aaron nuts! (hey, at least I vaccum.)

Sleep with 5 people in my bed. You may laugh, but there are several morings when EVERYONE gets in my bed and I have to leave, I can't stand being crowded.

Swim in the ocean where I can't touch. I am freaked out by what lies under the water and if I can't touch, I am miserable.

Let my babies "cry it out". I have tried three times (with all three kids) and I am terrible at it.

Watch scary movies. I have way too many nightmares.

Listen to talk radio- DRIVES ME CRAZY!

Seven thing I say the most:

Hurry Hurry- let's go!
Turn the water off in the bathroom. ( My kids are obsessed!)
Get your coat, shoes, backpack, etc (at least five times each before it happens!)
How did your test go?
I'm exhausted.
I miss you!
I love you!

Seven goals for the new year:

Read my scriptures more
Exercise (someday I'll get there)
Spend more time playing with my kids
Worry less
Keep in touch better
Stick to a budget
Plan more ( failure to plan means planning to fail!)

Seven reasons I fell in love with Aaron:

He is tall and handsome!
He called me Kate and offered to drive my car on our first date! ( I have since found out that he gives everyone a nickname, but it made me feel pretty special that day - and I didn't ask him out on our first date, but we took my car, and I was so impressed that he offered to drive!)
He is very service oriented and it was obvious to me when we met.
He loves old people.
He is very tender hearted and sweet.
He is a lot of fun to be with and makes me laugh.
His hugs make me feel better than anything else can!

Seven thing I love to eat:

Anything with artichokes
Peanut Butter
PF Changs
Thai food
Yummy drinks

Seven People I tag:
Whitney Hasler.
(Anyone else who wants to

Katie, that really made my day. I had to laugh out loud when I heard in my head Aaron quoting Back to the Future. Oh the memories. I also had to laugh at the 5 people in the bed thing. Hello couch here I come....

I love reading people's blog tags! I didn't know you had a chocolate fountain business! I had a friend who had one as well and I'd often go out to help her or cut up pineapple or wash strawberries...oh the memories. is that the job you quit, or was there another? Your family looks so cute, I can hardly stand it!
