OK - I am it.

Six things you might not know about me......some of you will. 1 ~ When i was in high school I had the coolest room. I had black and white photos from magazines covering every inch of my bedroom walls....I had about 300 glow in the dark stars.....and a strobe light. That turned out to be a bad thing (the strobe light). Natalie and our cousin Jordan (who were little at the time) decided to play in my room one night with the strobe light. Jordan got dizzy and fell in to my mirror. She was OK - but the mirror SHATTERED. You could even see where her nose made contact. My dad had to get me a new mirror door.
2 ~ I have had 3 broken arms. All happened at the Tanner's house. And all at Easter time. The day of, the Saturday before, and the Friday before. I don't go to there house anymore on or around Easter.
3 ~ I love EBay. Even if I don't like something a LOT, I will bid in it only to see the bid go up. I am more cautious now because of a lesson I learned from my dad. He saw a Harley that had no bids. He thought he would get it going....and no one else bid on he had to buy it. All $14,000 of it. I keep my bids to a limit of $50.
4 ~ Coconut is my favorite flavor/fruit. I love to eat it raw the most. Living in Hawaii has been very nice for this. You can get a zip-loc baggie for $3 at the farm stand at the Dole Plantation. That is a must-stop when ever we go up the the north shore. It makes a great snack while you are sifting through the sand.
5 ~ All but one calling I have ever had in church (since I have been married) have been in Primary. I have been a teacher every time up until now - I am the Secretary. In charge of making sure that the talk, scripture, and prayer are assigned each week.
6 ~ Today is Merrill and mine anniversary. 5 years. 2 kids. 5 moves. (Utah, Alabama, Hawaii, California, Hawaii)

Kitchen Talk

I am in love with my Kitchen Aid. It is just like this one.

I would love if I had this big stainless steal thing in my kitchen, but I don't think it would fit. I would also like to have this stove/oven someday....So I will keep saving my money.

Instead - I have this to work with:

I guess it will do.

The PX

As a military wife, there are many little perks that I get to partake of. The PX (Post eXchange) is one of them, along with free prescriptions if you are willing to wait 45 minutes, and the Commissary: the on-post grocery store (That one I really do like....they have real vanilla for like $2!). The PX is a little like Wal*Mart. But as you can see from the picture below, they have a much higher standard for the things they sell. And this was on the clearance rack! How could it end up there you ask?! Well - lucky for me it cost under $10 - with no tax! (another thing that is nice about shopping on post - no sales tax) Very easily am I able to go in to the PX and drop a nice chunk of change on a lot of things I don't really need, but at the time, feel like I can NOT live without. The more I think about it - Its kinda like Target too.......
***Don't worry - I didn't really buy this***

So I have a new thing that I really enjoy. Brushing my teeth in the shower. I do it at the very start while the water is getting warm. Then when I am all done showering - Its like I don't have to brush my teeth! The bad thing is this: Tonight when I was done, I tossed my tooth brush over the top of the shower aiming for the sink. But it landed behind the toilet. UAHH! I guess I will go to Wal*Mart tomorrow to get a new one.....and not do my showering and brushing at the same time anymore. =( Too bad because it saved me some time......although I know my dad would just die to know that I am wasting water.

Cheese Cakes

This is what I made today. Cheese cakes. 4 minies - Merrill likes the Reeses, and I like the that is what I made. They are very good! We made Pizza too. Yes - that is what you get when you went to Cooking School. If you ask me - It looks like everyone really liked it.

Dang I am a good wife/mom!

I am a little sick of living in Hawaii....but it is fun to see these all the time!

Wax Teeth

I love Wax teeth. Braxton does too....but he doesn't get that you are NOT supposed to bite off the little nub, but use it to keep them in your mouth and wave at people that drive by you.

I really like to chew the wax after to make sure you get all the "flavor" out before you spit it out in the little shards that it becomes.

Stupid Army

Why is it that when a soldier is gon to Iraq they dont earn more leave time then anyother soldier that is home with their family? And WHY do they get charged leave time for there 2 weeks of R&R during the deployment? Shouldnt that be given time?

Braxton made daddy very happy yesterday

when they were driving and Merrill started to whistel the BYU Fight song. Braxton recognized it and said, "That the Couger fight song!"
