Getting to know you late Sunday night..

1. The most expensive thing hanging in my closet is.....?
Hmmm that's tough.. I would say my wedding dress but I'm not sure where it is.. I think in one of my parent's closets.. so probably either purses, or jackets

2. Have you ever played a team sport?

I did t-ball when I was little and some softball .. I did high school equestrian team all four years.. I joined the polo team on my horse at college, rode at a few practices and then dropped it when I heard how expensive it was and they started asking me for money!
haha I think I'm more of a non team sport person though with horses, wakeboarding, and snowboarding. I looooove football a whole lot though and want my boys (assuming I have some) to play!

3. If you were a bug, what kind would you be?

NOT a cricket since I see Echo chowing down on one right now.. ants and bees work too hard so not those.. probably a fat and happy caterpillar!

4. Where on your body is the worst place to get sunburned?

Thankfully I don't burn easily and it turns to tan.. but I will burn on my scalp when my hair is parted and that is the worst! It hurts every time I brush my hair and then peels and flakes which looks sick nasty! I hate putting greasy sunscreen in my hair so I try and not have a part showing or sometimes spray sunscreen does the the trick.

5. Are you happy?

I am! I am filled with joy and have a purpose because of my Savior. :) I know that my time here is temporary and I get super excited thinking about Heaven! I also have a great husband, wonderful family, great pets, and the best of friends! A roof over my head, food in the cupboard, plus a whole lot of shoes and jeans- I have a lot to be thankful for!

6. People are always abbreviating..are there any abbreviations that make your skin crawl when people use them?

A year or so ago my husband's brother said that he and his friends were just "mobbing" around! It didn't really make my skin crawl but it made us laugh and sounded so high schoolish/ hip! He also says "dank" a lot which I didn't like at first because I think it is used to describe good weed? ... but I find myself saying it to Race sometimes now! haha I don't like making fun of abbreviations because then if I say it I'm a total hypocrite.. but there are some pretty ridiculous ones.. pretty safe to say I will never say "lmfao".. I'm not that crude! :)

7. Do you love where you live..or could you live anywhere?

I love Oregon SOO much! Everyone exaggerates how rainy it is which annoys me because it's really not that bad. We have nice cool nights in the summer with no humidity during the day. I live an hour from the mountain, an hour and twenty minutes from the beach, 3 hours from the high desert and we have pretty much everything else in between! Lots of sweet lakes and rivers for boating, huge forests, amazing hiking, a very friendly and clean city..what more could you want?! Oh we also have Tillamook cheese which is the best, fun college rivalries, oh and a little company called Nike started here.

With that being said.. I spent the first 5 years of my life in Vermont and love the east coast. We have gone back 1-2 times a year my whole life to visit family. Usually we go to Massachusetts and Pennsylvania where they live but sometimes we'll hit up New York and Vermont too. I'm a big Patriots, Red Sox, and Celtics fan and love all my uncle's strong Boston accents:)

I've always loved Colorado and think it is soo beautiful and the only thing that would bother me is how much snow they get..but they also get more sunny days then any other state! California I always have a blast visiting but the smoggy air makes me always appreciate coming home! I think I've been to around 30 states? I want to see them all, and then the world. We really want to spend some time in Thailand at some point and I want to go to Europe again and then Australia and South Africa sometime.. but I think I'd prefer to always live in the US. I'm proud to be an American and feel incredibly blessed living here when I could have just as easily been born somewhere like Burkina Faso which has the lowest caloric intake in the world and I hear stories about it from my pastor all the time.

Race is trying to find a better job and he has seem some opportunity in Arizona so who knows where we'll be the next few years, but I know (Lord willing) by the time I want kids I want to be back in Oregon!

8. What, if any, extreme measures do you go to to keep yourself from overeating when you're full?

Well I need to do more.. but I try now that I'm married (and have a husband who is trying to gain weight) I pass my food on over to him and he downs it before I can overeat or change my mind! haha
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!


  1. Hey. I've been to the Tillamook Cheese Factory. My best friend moved to Oregon a few years ago.

    It is nice to meet you.

  2. a cricket would be a bad idea, but a catepillar is multi-purpose!! I hate it when I get burnt on the head, it's definitely the worst

  3. i'm so jealous of your tanning-and-not-getting-burnt ability! i always seem to burn if i don't pile on the sunscreen! haha!

    i SO want to visit oregon!! it sounds like such a wonderful place!!

    and look at you with all your glamorous sports!! equestrian team?? and polo?? HOW COOL!
