What I am doing: Putting off cleaning my house
What I’m proud of today: not letting myself get flustered when I realized I was running way late.

Who is home:me, Oscar, Moo
Plans tonight: relax! I had a crazy week at work and I need to unwind.
My weekend was: still in the middle of it. Super fun so far- graduation party and baby shower. All I need is some shopping for it to be perfect.
What’s for dinner: who knows- probably cereal. I don't cook for myself when it's just me at home.

Thoughts on parenting: eh, I don't want to think about it. It's very important though. I do know that.
Thoughts on marriage: fabulous. Doesn't get better than having your life with your best friend.
Thoughts on politics: I really don't have many opinions about it. Apparently I'm a Democrat, according to an online questionnaire.
Thoughts on celebrity gossip: escapism at its best
Thoughts on beauty: it comes from within. One's personality can enhance or detract from one's looks.
Thoughts on sleep: I loooove to sleep. I need 8-9 hours each night to feel rested.

One year ago: Graduated from BYU, unemployed but on the job search.
One year from now: Probably still working for DCFS, hopefully getting ready to buy our first place.
Five years from now: I'll probably have a kid... can't be just an aunt forever, right?
Ten years from now: I'll be in the thick of raising a family- scary!

I’ll never be famous for: being a workaholic
Who I am: a very blessed girl.
Who I hope to be: someone that other people want to be around
What I’m thankful for: lots and lots. My family, my friends, good jobs, the Gospel, living in a free nation, having running water and flushing toilets, Spanx.... seriously, this could go on and on.

I love spanx too. Can't live without them. I also think that you are great and fun person and I am glad that we are friends. Reading this reminded me of why I like you. I also think you need to be a little more honest about your guilty pleasures - such as being a world saving social worker.

Thanks for playing along. I want to comment on so many things...lets see. First, your blog looks cute! Do you want a separate background page? Is that the problem? I just changed mine & i think the lady made a mistake in the directions. I have a solution for you, I think.

I want to make a comment about the workaholic but I can't remember the line from the movie with Owen Wilson where he says in a job interview--if you're looking for a workhorse, that's not me.

lastly you are just so cute & happy/optimistic. I loved reading the whole thing. And you are FOR SURE a person people want to be around.
