I always enjoy a good tag (when I actually sit down to do it).
And so I decided to take Julie up on her tag, even though I am pretty busy smoochin' my babykins. :)
And let me tell you - his cheeks are oh-so-smoochable.

This is a little tricky since I have already posted 200 things about me. There can't possible anything else interesting worth listing, but I will try. And I have no idea if I'm repeating myself because even I didn't read through my list of 200 things about me.

1::I'm afraid of falling of bridges on the freeway. I always cringe a bit when I drive over one. I worry that I might get in an accident and fly off, the bridge might collapse, or I might just drive right off the edge.
2::I developed a fear of heights with age. This doesn't help my fear of freeway bridges.
3::I like to drive without any music on.
4::I like to run without music too.
5::I believe the music album is a dying art. No thanks to mp3's. Boo. There's nothing like listening to a great album start to finish.
6::I always leave the tab to my soda cans up after I open the can, and then poor the soda into a glass of ice. The soda tastes better that way.
7::I make pretty good homemade pizza. And spaghetti sauce.
8::My least favorite color is red.
9::My current favorite color is grey.
10::I dream of having a wood burning fireplace. I would build a fire everyday. Even in the summer.
11::I love the smell of bleach. And laundry detergent.
(from Julie)

1::What is the best (your favorite) book ou have ever read and why?
I am so not good at answering questions about books. I'm not good at remembering details and I'm not good at vocalizing what I like about them. I just know when I like them and when I don't. I'm also bad at picking favorites. Some of my favorites are Harry Potter series, Hunger Games, Catcher in the Rye, Siddartha, the Giver. I like books that have really great, memorable characters and that I can pick up and put down easily (but that I don't want to put down).

2::What is your favorite meal to cook?
Hmm...interesting question. I love cooking yummy foods for special occasions. It makes me so happy when people like what I make. I think my favorite meal to cook for my family is steak, oven fries, and veggie (broccoli, zucchini, or asparagus) because everyone loves it and everyone eats it. That makes me happy.

3::If you could live in any other era which would it have been?
This is a great question. I would have loved to live in the mid to late 1800s, through the turn of the 20th century. So much changing. So many exciting things happening in art, music, politics, religion. Oh man, I would have loved that.

4::Who have you been told you look like?
Britney Spears or Helen Hunt.
One person said I looked like Celine Dion. Completely random.

5::Favorite TV show?
LOST. And Friends. And Wonder Years.

6::What brings you inner peace?
Being sealed to my family in the temple for eternity.

7::Tell me something you're good at.
I'm really good at playing Speed. You know, the card game? I'm really good.
And guiatar hero.

8::Ever chopped your hair super short?
The shortest I ever cut my hair was an A-line to my chin.

9::What is included in your perfect day?
A full night sleep. Waking up early (but not tired). Going on a run. Having Husband home. Going on a long walk on the river trail or in the mountains. Having some quiet time to write in my journal or write poems. Orchestra rehearsal. Lacrosse game. Snuggling with my kiddos. Going on a long drive listening to Dave Matthews. Lying on the grass in the sun. Taking a nap. Another walk at dusk. Cuddling with Husband on the couch with the fire going and a movie on. Quiet nights. Sitting on the porch or going on another walk under the stars. Snuggling in to a warm, cozy bed and falling asleep to a favorite movie - like Braveheart, or Rocky, or Romeo & Juliet.

10::What piece of furniture in your house is your favorite or are you the most happy with?
Our couches. They are leather, they are huge, they are comfy, and every seat reclines.

11::If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go, who would you go with, and how long would you stay?
Europe. Husband. As long as it took us to see all the sights in England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, Austria, Italy. But especially Italy. I don't least a month. may also like:

Ditto the bridges. Lucky for me we don't have bridges over water here in UT. Also I may not be very good at speed but it is one of my favorite games to play. Just make sure everyone clips their fingernails first!
