Day 17: Someone I would want to switch lives with for one day and why

I only want this one if it works both ways. I want to switch lives with a stay at home mom, but I want her to switch lives with me as well. I think this would help us each appreciate more the stage we are at in life. I hear so often, "You're single. I would give anything to have as much free time as you have." To which I reply, "I would give anything to have a little person call me mom."

So, I'll switch, but you have to switch with me too, OK?

Day 16: Another picture of me

Well, this was recent, but then I decided to chop my hair off. Can't decide if my new hair is cute or if it is more resembles a bowl. So for now, this picture it is!

Day 13: Letter to Someone Who Hurt Your Recently

How about a letter to something that hurt me recently?

Dear Spin Bike,

You know I love you, but my two year hiatus from you was just too much to handle, wasn't it? You were angry with me for not visiting you for so long. I'm terribly sorry, but life just got in the way of things. You know I'm not an early morning person and the only classes taught at night were on Tuesdays and Thursday. Tuesdays just didn't work for me once I was put in the Young Women.

I know what you are thinking. I could have come to visit you on Thursdays. True, I could have, but let's face it - I am really good at justification. I thought if I could only come visit you one day a week it just wasn't worth the effort. I mean, I would start to get comfortable with you and then I wouldn't be able to see you for a week. That's just no good.

But I'm back now. I know you missed me, but did you really need to punish me so hard? My bottom has been sore for two days. Don't you worry! I'll be back to visit you tonight and on a regular basis. Hopefully you'll forgive me soon and stop hurting my back side!

Day 12: How I found about about blogger and why I have one

I honestly do not remember how I found out about blogger. I think about the time I started my blog, blogger was the main site everyone was using. I just followed the crowd and here I am. I think that Wordpress might actually be a better blogging site, but I'm just too lazy to change.

Day 9: Something I'm proud of the last few days

Today, I'm proud of the fact that I basically pulled together a New Beginnings event for the young women in about 2.5 days. I guess we'll see tonight if I needed more than 2.5 days.

Day 7: A picture of someone or something that has the biggest impact on me

Because I believe families are eternal. I believe the temple is a holy place where we can learn more about our relationship with God and our part in His plan. I believe if we live worthy we will see our Savior face-to-face one day. I believe that this life is temporary and the sacred ordinances performed in the house of the Lord will bind us for eternity.

Day 6: Favorite Super Hero and Why

When I think about a favorite super hero, the only thing that comes to mind is Wonder Woman. This isn't because Wonder Woman is my favorite super hero. In fact, I don't think I even really know much about her. But, Wonder Woman comes to mind because when I was about 4 years old, I had a pair of Wonder Woman under-roos. And I wore those under-roos to run through the sprinklers in the summer time. I guess all I really needed was a cape!

Day 3: A picture of me and my friends

One thing I've always been grateful for in my life is good friends. I've been really blessed to be surrounded by people who help me to choose the right and encourage me. I think I have a very rare blessing in my life that not a lot of people have - I still have two very close friends from childhood. Today, I'll share of picture of me and Des.

Des and I met when we were 5. True story, we became friends in kindergarten and we've stayed friends since. We had our ups and downs growing up, but we never let anything stand between our bond for too long. She's married now with 3 little kids so our lives have definitely taken different paths.

November 2008, New Kids on the Block came to town. Since we saw them in concert when we were 14, I thought it was only fitting that we went again at 32. Here's a picture of us enjoying the show.

Day 2: The meaning behind my blog name

I really don't know how I came up with my blog name. I just remember one day thinking that I wanted to start a blog. It was the summer of 2007 and I had been reading a lot of blogs that I thought were super cool. And I wanted in on the action. So one very boring day at work, I decided to start a blog. I think I came up with the name in about 2.5 seconds, which explains how non-creative it actually is.

The original intent of my blog was to post cool design things, thoughts, or ideas on this blog. I never had any intention of making my blog personal. It's pretty funny to me to go back and ready those first few entries and see how different my blog entries are now.

2. I love to get pedicures but don't enjoy manicures.

3. I have gray hair and have had some since I was 24. That's why my hair always has to be colored.
