Friday Confessional


I've seen this done over at Dandelion Wishes and thought it would be fun.

I hate snow! I always have. You'd think that living in Idaho my entire life that I'd be used to it but nope! The only days I have ever liked snow was when I went out and built snowmen with my dad when I was a kid. Though, we didn't just make snowmen, we made snow dragons, snow crocodiles, etc. One time we attempted to do a Stonehenge but the snow was too powdery and just didn't work.

I am a picky eater. I used to be really bad as a child but I finally started to grow out of it (somewhat) when I entered my late teen years. It drove my mother crazy because I refused to try things based on what it looked like. But don't you worry, I am reaping everything that I sowed from P. That kid is picky beyond belief and meal times are a constant fight. *Sigh*  He is even in "Feeding Therapy" in conjunction with his Speech Therapy. It has been working and I think his awesome daycare provider has helped a bunch too! She requires him to eat at least two bites of everything on his plate. He has even learned to like some new things!

I hate to cook. The only time I "like" to make a meal is when I can throw a few ingredients into a casserole dish and toss it in the oven. If the recipe calls for tomatoes or for browning or sauteing anything, I usually toss the recipe to the side.

I have poor sportsmanship. I HATE to lose and usually end up showing it. When J and I were first dating, we were playing an old Nintendo game and I got killed by a flying fish or something. I got so upset that I slammed my fist down on my leg. However, J put his  hand on my leg to comfort me in my "death" and I managed to slam my fist onto his hand. I was so embarrassed! I hadn't meant to show him my unsportsmanlike conduct so soon into the relationship! Luckily, his hand healed was fine and our relationship continued.

Cute Goobers

I L.O.V.E. these little goobers!

I cannot believe how big these guys are getting! P is 4 1/2 and E is 20 months! :'-)  Time flies by way too quickly!

One day when I was gone running errands or something, J had some fun taking pictures of the boys. E is VERY attached to his blanket. J decided to make the boys capes with their blankets. It was pretty cute. Here are some pics:

I'm guessing he was going for a Dracula approach

Again, I love these little goobers!

Well, I finished the 30 Day Photo Challenge. I found it fun because I was able to reminisce and think a little more about my likes, dislikes, etc. However, I think I may have bored you all to tears. Hopefully, you'll continue to come and check out our lil' ol' blog.

Day 30: A picture of someone you miss

This is my Great Grandmother. She passed away when I was 12 or 13. We were best buds. My parents worked on Saturdays, so she would babysit me when I was young. She made the BEST scrambled eggs and toast. We used to walk down to the convenience store and would buy lottery scratch tickets. We used to drive out to the Fort Hall Reservation and look for wild asparagus growing along the canal banks. We played A LOT of cards and Rummy. We were best friends and I miss her a lot.

Day 29: A picture that can always make you smile

We had an awesome day of pictures with P back in May 2008. So fun and so stinkin' cute! Love that boy!

Day 28: A picture of something you're afraid of

I am terrified of heights! I usually want to see the view but I slowly have to inch my way toward the railing and get a good grip on it before I feel "safe."

Day 27: A picture of yourself and a family member

I couldn't just pick one so I picked my parents. I sure do love these two!

Day 26: A picture of something that means a lot to you

My faith/religion means very much to me. It boost me spiritually and helps me on all sorts of levels. It helps me to make friends. My faith gives me the opportunity to serve others. My faith makes me who I am; which is hopefully a good person. My faith helps me want to continue to progress and continue to improve myself.

Day 25: A picture of your day

I went to work and, afterward, I got my eyes checked. The picture of me in my Shopko garb was actually my last day at Shopko when I was a seasonal associate. I was rehired on after I had E. Good times, good times.

Day 24: A picture of something you wish you could change

I know it is totally cliche but I just want world peace! Can't we all just get along and love one another? I feel like "Gracie Lou Freebush." ;-)

Day 23: A picture of your favorite book

I love the Harry Potter series! I was hooked immediately and I've read them several times. Good stuff, good stuff.
