DIM: Did It Myself!

Many months ago, TJ's mom gave me a vanity that she no longer had room or need for. I had big plans to sand it down, repaint it, and make it my own. Then life happened, I got busy/lazy, and the vanity just sat in my room. Finally, when the weather started getting all nice I got ambitious and started to work on it. After many phone calls, and a visit, from my uber-crafty mother my vanity is finally back in the house! It isn't perfect, so don't look too close. And I'm not really finished with it, I have more plans for it, but for now this is my finished project! I don't have any "before" pictures so you will just have to trust me when I say that this is an improvement!

Yet another reason why I love my husband...

My husband is crazy busy, like ALL the time. TJ is currently taking 15 credits at ASU (and maintaining his above 4.0 GPA), working a couple days a week at Countrywide, taking an LSAT prep class, serving as a Deacon's advisor at church, loving me, and oh so much more! But on top of all of that, TJ still has time to help me around the house. As my favorite quote says, "No man was ever killed while doing the dishes."

What a Good Looking Bunch (of monkeys)

Each month, my mom's side of the family tries to get together for a combined Family Home Evening. Last night most of us were able to get together at my uncle Ron's house. As we sat around talking and catching up, I couldn't help but notice what a good looking bunch we are. See for yourself.... This is TJ's serious face...sexy.

Picture Tag

I guess the object of the game is google image for every catagory shown and post whatever image comes up first....

Favorite Food







Yum...Mexican Food!

Age on my next birthday








Hopefully my 23rd birthday will not be all creepy and psychotic!

My Middle Name







Apparently this is the "Marie" referenced in T.S. Eliot's poem The Waste Land...definitely not me

College Major









In Elementary Education we mostly take wild guesses!

Favorite Vacation









It really is the happiest place on earth!

Bad Habit







I still cannot stop biting my nails!


Name of a Pet






The one on the right is actually THE Fifi Trixibelle that I named my fish after! Apparently, her dad was Sir Bob Geldof of the Boomtown Rats (no, I've never heard of him either!) But her sister's namese are: Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof, Pixie Frou-Frou Geldof, and Heavenly Hiraani Tiger-Lily Hutchence...what awesome names!

Place I would visit








I have always wanted to go to Venice, Italy!

Where I live








This isn't what my Chandler looks like, but apparently some part of Chandler does!

Where I would love to live







I've never been to Tahiti (or anywhere outside of North America!) but this is what I picture when I think of paradise.

This tag was different, but fun! I TAG...Calli, Lindsey, and anyone else who wants to do this!

TJ's Egg Movie

Once upon a time, I said I would upload the video TJ made starring his Easter egg...so here it is. There really is no explanation for this video. Watch it, love it, tell me what you think. And no, there is no way to give you back the 13 seconds you waste watching this.
