Tagged by the Number 5

Brooke tagged me awhile ago and I'm finally doing it (read #2 on my to do list and you'll discover 1 big reason I'm so late in responding and posting in general lately).

5 things on my to do list...
  1. Spring cleaning.
  2. Find a new toy (exersaucer?) to keep Kaylee's attention for long periods of time (the swing isn't cutting it anymore).
  3. Work on my gluten-free blog.
  4. Sew some clothes for Kaylee and work on other fun crafts.
  5. Get the dining room lights fixed.

5 Snacks I Love...
  1. Cake truffles.
  2. Fiddle Faddle. And plain popcorn.
  3. Smoothies.
  4. Pretty much anything chocolate, caramel, or toffee flavored.
  5. Chips and homemade salsa.

5 things I will never wear again...

Most of these things have to do with my hair. Either I didn't wear weird things in the 80's or I'm not certain I wouldn't wear them again... scary).
  1. Shorts above the knee.
  2. Big scrunchies in my hair or on my wrist.
  3. Layered colored socks (my main memory while wearing these, I was riding in the "Beast" van with my cousin Heidi and we were both wearing our socks this way... it was totally radical dude).
  4. My bangs hairsprayed straight up.
  5. Big bows in my hair.

5 Things I would do if I were a Billionaire...
  1. Build a house with a fun playroom for the kids, a theater room for Joel, and a craft room for me.
  2. Travel, especially cruises!
  3. Get an awesome minivan (yes, I'm a geek and I want a minivan... I've already admitted that in a previous post).
  4. Help out others. If anyone has seen Oprah's Big Give (it's the show I watch online while feeding Kaylee at 3am), what the people on there have the opportunity to do each week is my dream.
  5. Throw parties. I would love to be able to throw big elaborate parties for family and friends. I'd have so much fun planning the buffet, decorations, entertainment, etc. I want to do birthday parties, holiday theme parties, and just because parties. I realize I can do them now, but it would be fun if money wasn't an issue and I could do whatever I could dream up.

5 Bad Habits...

Hmmm, where to start...
  1. Nail biting.
  2. Interrupting people (sorry everyone I've done this to and will do it to in the future! I'm working on it).
  3. Shoplifting. Okay, not really. Well... not really on purpose. And it's only happened twice, so it's not really a habit. I just need to look closer under the carseat in the cart when I take Kaylee shopping. Two different times I've gotten out to my car and found a little 99 cent item in the cart when I lift Kaylee out (jell-o and car lightbulbs). Talk about frustrating! Don't worry, both times I went back into the store and bought the item. Even though it was an accident I still felt like a criminal.
  4. Procrastination. And getting annoyed when someone reminds me about the thing I'm procrastinating. I always get to the things I need, but I have to be in the mood or I won't do it.
  5. My curiosity. It's pretty bad. I like to know details about things. Even when it has nothing to do with me. "Curiosity" is actually a nice way of putting it. "Nosy" is more accurate. My "nosiness" does seem to go in waves though. Sometimes I want to know details to everything and sometimes I couldn't care less.

5 of my favorite toys...Nostalgics

I still have every single one of these toys. I couldn't give them up, so now my girls get to play with them :).
  1. Polly Pockets (back when they were tiny). I have a lot, but Paige might have more.
  2. Barbies. Kim, Brooke, and I even had a Barbie room for awhile. It was awesome! We could set up all of our Barbie furniture and just leave it there for days.
  3. Dolls. I couldn't choose between 6 toys, so I combined my Cabbage Patch Doll and Strawberry Shortcake Doll into one.
  4. Love-A-Lot Carebear. She's the pink one with 2 hearts on her tummy.
  5. Smooshies. Does anyone remember these?! I have yet to find someone (besides my family) that remembers these, which is weird because they always had commercials for them the year I got them for Christmas. Here is a picture I found online of one I had (her name was even Beth):

CTU: Provo


A couple of friends of mine made a feature-length parody of 24 and it's finally ready for public viewing. I got to play a small role in it, so they asked me if I would help spread the word to my friends across the web.

And so I spread:

That is the official website where you can get information and such as well as download the entire movie and watch it in the comfort of your own home.

You can discuss the movie and/or ask any questions you may have in the comments.

Here's their synopsis from the site (with my own, personal embellishments) to help wet (whet?) your appetite:

By "24" fans for "24" fans. CTU: Provo is a hilarious look at what happens when a small town branch of the Counter Terrorist Unit is confronted with an actual terrorist attack. With the help of some diehard fans of the "24" show, these hapless agents attempt to stop a horrific environmental catastrophe. Along the way, they'll discover what a slick oil tycoon has to do with all of this as well as try to save the life of an important politician. Featuring beloved entertainer Donny Osmond, radio personality Jimmy Chunga, acclaimed actor Rick Macy and members of Divine Comedy (BYU's premier sketch comedy troupe), CTU: Provo is sure to entertain fans of "24" as well as those who have never seen the show.

For your entertainment...

Sorry we haven't posted forever! Last week we were in Cedar Hills at my families house staying with Kelsi while my parents were in Germany. We had tons of fun, but with hanging out with family, friends, and playing the Wii there wasn't much time for blogging. I did discover some new YouTube videos that I absolutely love though! Paige, Ryan, and Kelsi showed us the ones with the cute kids. Joel showed them the Tarzan and Jane one in return. I love them! Enjoy!

This one is my absolute favorite! SOOOO CUTE!!!

Kelsi and I had this stuck in our head all week. It's awesome!

Kids are so funny!

Kaylee loves her food!

Kaylee loves new foods! Her favorite is her apple juice. She guzzles that stuff down like there's no tomorrow. She practically holds the bottle herself even! I don't have a great picture of that, but here are some other great food pictures...

Okay, she's not really drinking this rootbeer freeze, but she certainly wished she was.

This is from the first time she ate rice cereal. We have video of it, but it's pretty long and has me and Joel talking too much on it. She loved the cereal, but wasn't very good at eating it that way yet, so most of it ended up on her shirt and face. She is now an expert!

Messy girl! We were so excited to give her real food we forgot a bib.

Kaylee looked really interested in Renae's (Joel's mom) water, so we told her to go ahead and give her a drink. She couldn't get enough!
