Here it goes:

Day 1 

List 10 random facts about yourself.

1. At the fault of my loving and adorable (almost)hubby ... I put yogurt (plain greek) and honey on my cereal every morning. When he first did this I told him it was just gross, and now I do it too, and I can't imagine eating my cereal any other way!

2. I paid a couple thousand dollars more, JUST to have a black car (yes, I am that girl) ...and now I hate that my car is black.  

3. I have a cat named Bean that I love with my whole heart, my parents dog Rusty is indeed my best friend, and I will probably always care for animals more than I care for people.

4. I feel I look my best and I am most comfortable when I am at the gym, in my gym clothes. Even more comfortable than when I am at home in my sweats. Justin says that is backwards compared to most. 

5. I do not know how to ski, snowboard, water ski, wake board, or anything of the like. Yes, I have lived in Utah my entire life. 

6. The majority of my friends are twice my age. Some of them grumpy old men. And I love them all dearly.  

7. I still think my parents are super heros that no one could ever live up to.

8. I can eat more candy in one day than you can in a month and not get a stomach ache.

9. I have kept 2 new year resolutions in a row now.
 2012- Start cooking - I cook nearly every day now and have become so much healthier    because of that.
 2012- Save ALL of our reciepts and keep a monthly budget - that has been revealing!

10. I never wanted to be a wife or a mother, until I met Justin. Now that is all I want, like it is all I have ever wanted. 


Day 2

  Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.

Before I do this one let me first explain my take on "fear"... I feel the only way I can have a fear is if I am living in the past or the future. If I am present (where God resides) I cannot experience fear. So these are some of the bigger fears I have experienced when I take myself away from what is real right now and focus on my imagination of what the future may hold.

1. Losing my parents. This is a huge fear of mine, one that will someday become reality many many years down the road ( I pray ). I don't think I need to explain how it became a fear.... like I said before... my parents are super heros. Enough said. 

2. Having a kid just like myself. I struggled for a lot a years and no ones fault but my own. I hated myself and my life. There was nothing anyone could do to make it better until I decided to make it better by asking for help. I put my family through hell. I wouldn't want anyone to feel the way I did growing up, especially my own child because I know there is nothing a parent can do to change it. 

3. Never finding a man that will take care of me.  My mother has some health issues and my dad has been by her side the whole time. I have watched him take care of her, and her him, in his times of need. I have grown a fear that if I get ill some day I will not have a man like my dad there to take care of me like he does her. 

Some random fact and fears!

Join in the fun and kick your fanny back into the blogging world like I have!
