1. Dream job... realistic and completely unrealistic.
~ Not sure what I would call it, but I just want a suitcase, a journal, and a camera. I want to travel all over the world. I want to take as many pictures as possible, and I want to write about my adventures.

2. Do you fart in front of your significant other?
~ Believe me when I say I do try to hold it in. But, you do what ya gotta do...

3. What's the furthest you've ever traveled from home? How far and where was it?
~ France. We flew out of San Francisco landed in Paris, then flew to another town in southern France.

4. How do you celebrate birthday for your kids? Family only or friends?
~ We usually have a small get together with mostly family, maybe some friends. Cake is definitely a must. I usually either order a pizza or cook their favorite foods.

5. Fave thing about fall?
~ Sweaters. Sweaters and boots. I love Fall. It's beginning to become my most favorite season of all.

Good Times!

I'm excited. Life is good. My mom is halfway here, she'll be here tomorrow!

School is still going well for Shannon. Since the stomach issues I had are pretty much gone, I've been able to reclaim my grip on this whole housewife thing. I've been cooking some pretty fantastic meals! I made a chicken cajun pasta from The Pioneer Woman. Tonight I made biscuits and gravy, the best ones I've made yet.

The Mr. and I are planning a trip next year, without the children! Our good friend Ally is getting married Nov 2012 in Oahu and we are going to try our damnedest to be there for her! So far, we've planned to drop the kids off at my moms, then drive to Travis AFB and catch a hop into Hawaii. That's as far as we've gotten so far haha. I'm hoping to be able to see our friends the Catoes and the Speeds while we are down there.

Today I was named as the Head Room Mother in Shannon's class. No big responsibility, I just have to make sure the other Room Mothers are active in their parts during each holiday celebration.

Needless to say, I doubt I will get much sleep tonight. I can't wait to see my mom! And this is a total surprise to the kids, which is even better!

What's going on!

Holy cow! It's been almost a month since I wrote last. I hate when I do this.. Anyway, Shannon started Kindergarten on the 29th. She is quite excited to be in school again and she's taking it all in like a sponge. She is doing great! I haven't heard any real negative reports from her teacher. She seems to be having the same hiccups as all the other kids in her class. The first week was the hardest, not for me, not for Shannon, but for Erin! She didn't understand why she couldn't go to school with Shannon. Poor kid.

Her first weekend after school started, she got the stomach bug that was going around and threw up. Luckily it only lasted her a day. Myself on the other hand.. It plagued me for nearly 3 days. After I was already having stomach issues for about 4 days, those 3 days were like hell! I'm so glad to finally feel like a normal human being again.

I'm so so so excited for Fall! The girls have so many cute clothes and I can't wait to wear my sweaters. I never used to be excited for Fall. Really, this is like the first year I've ever looked forward to the season. I'm not a fan of snow, but I can embrace the cold. Here's to hoping for a mellow Utah Winter..
