Priceless....and...a Tag

This morning...Grace looked so so so adorable. She finally fit into the cutest sleeper that my Cousin Christi (Gick) gave her, (thank you SO SO much by the way, i LOVE it) and so I tried for over half an hour to get a 'priceless' picture...I never got the shots I had specifically wanted because Grace would not cooperate...but these few still turned out pretty adorable. Sometimes, you don't find what you were looking for, instead you find something even better. :)












I fall in love every time those big blue eyes look right at me.
This mid-yawn cracked me up so much I had to post it.
This...I know it's kind of a weird shot...but it shows off her killer long eye lashes!! I'm jealous!


And then...although this is out of the blue...I was 'tagged' by my Aunt Kalani...so...here goes

Five things I was doing ten years ago:
1. Probably being beaten up by my big Sister Daysh...she was so mean!! hehe ;)
2. I think I was in...4th grade? 5th maybe? probably playing 'boys chase girls' or something silly like that
3. Playing piano...I love piano. I think I was better when I was 10 then I am now.
4. Reading a TON. My mom used to come in, find me in my closet reading and make me go to bed!
5. Possibly playing over at the Buckley's. They always had a new batch of kittens in the summer time that I would go play with and then bring over to my house, almost always convincing my mom that we needed one. :)

Five things on my To Do list:
1. Clean the car...inside and out. yuck.
2. Write in my journal.
3. My a scrapbook page of Grace.
4. Put boxes of maternity clothes in storage.
5. Take things to the D.I.

Five of my favorite snacks/foods:
1. Apple Juice
2. Lasagna!
3. Neilsen's Frozen Custard Raspberry Brownie Concrete. mmmmm.
4. Salad, with everything on it!
5. Jalapeno Poppers

Five things I would do if I was a billionaire:
1. Buy Grace a new heart. :) And Donate millions to engineering new hearts for thousands of babies.
2. Buy a house in the Southern Avenues, on this street that Topher and I adore. It has trees that canopy the entire street, and old style lamp posts every two houses down. They're old classic beautiful houses. Ooooh, and then I'd install a hot tub, and a sports court.
3. Buy a mini cooper for myself, a VW soft top 23 window van for Topher, and a yellow mustang for my mom :)
4. Go to Cosmetology School, and another University to get a degree in Child Psychology or Elementary Education.
5. Travel with Topher, Grace, my siblings and parents everywhere: Disney World, a Cruise, Europe, Australia...EVERYWHERE
wow...that question really made me with I was filthy rich!! haha

Five bad habits:
1. Biting my nails
2. Surfing the internet for loooong periods of time
3. Procrastinating
4. Snacking incessantly on Nilla Cakesters. mmmm yum.
5. Leaving a trail of mess everywhere I go.

Five places I have lived:
1.Utah
2.California
3.Germany
4.Missourri
5.Virginia...i think.

Five people I tag:
1. Emily
2. Dacia
3. Jen
4. Karen, and Dad too...if he will
5. Alan
But I also want to tag a bunch of our heart friends...I think it's good to do fun things like 'tags' every once and a while. To get your mind out of the hospital grind!!

I already told you this, but will tell you again so you feel really stupid. Cosmotology school? Seriously?! Ridiculous. Anywho. Liked your blog and the cute pics of Grace- she is a cutie! I'm excited to see her tonight (even if I can only look at her from a distance). Love you guys! Oh and I can't wait for you to get filthy rich so you will take me all over the world. ;)

Mythreesons said...

yeah... get filthy rich for all of us. Sounds good to me. And Dacia's comment sounds really ridiculous when you realize she can't even SPELL cosmetology... personally, I would have LOVED that... seriously. And it would have been so much cheaper than law school...*sigh.* I love that you're updating regularly!

Cosmetology school was great not ridiculous and I think you would do awesome. Thanks for doing the Tag it was fun to learn more about you. I want to go hiking with you guys sometime soon. We will call you when we plan our next hike maybe next weekend.
Grace is adorable and I am so glad you post so many pics of her. I wish I could hold her all the time. You inspire me and I totally appreciate my healthy kids more because of the strength you have.
Love,
Aunt Kalani

You are a sly one, deleting my post and that cute picture of Rachel. I hope you learned a valuable lesson!

Hey...I wanted to comment on the post that Karen left!

As for cosmetology school... I think you would do wonderfully. And I also think that people should not dismiss it so easily. Cutting hair well is a lot more difficult than one would think, judging by how many bad haircuts I've gotten vs. how many good ones!

LOVE the pictures of Grace & her big beautiful blue eyes! I have something that I would like to send her...from Annabelle. Could you email me with an address where I may mail it?
