My sister-in-law posted about these on her blog. As she put it, "If you are Mormon (member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints), know a Mormon or live in Utah, you'll find these cards with mormonisms from Line upon Line pretty funny." The designs are great and I thought they were hilarious. Here are some of my favorites. You can find more and order here.

Being in the primary, I know all about this next one :)

Well, I really don't get tagged too much, but for some reason, I got tagged 3 times this last week. Luckily, 2 of them are the same tag. If for nothing else, it's for journal purposes, so, sorry if you don't want or need to know this much about me, but here you go...


I have...way too much water being retained.
I always...beat Shane at games (ok, almost always) and he hates it.
I hear...PBS kids in the background and Max's contagious laugh.
I smell...EVERYTHING! I am pregnant afterall :).
I wish...I could eat some good, authentic Brazilian food right now.
I wonder...if my house will ever be clean all at once.
I regret...not keeping in touch with people better.
I love...when Shane and Max dance together.
I am...craving a Jamba Juice. Anyone want to help out with that? :)
I know...what is really important in life.
I adult onset zits to go away once and for all!
I always...turn on music when doing dishes. It makes it bearable because I hate doing them!
I am not...a real girly-girl.
I am like...Shane in a lot of ways actually. I guess that's why we get along so smashingly!
I believe...that we can overcome anything with faith and prayer.
I am happy that...Max is showing an interest in potty-training. I really hope I won't have 2 sets of diapers to change!
I lose...control of my bladder sometimes when I sneeze. Again, pregnancy does weird things.
I never...swear.
I and find new songs I hear on commercials.
I am scared of...having to live without my family.
I read...old classics when I can. Favorite books are probably Pride and Prejudice, Les Miserables, and The Count of Monte Cristo.
I need...a new brain sometimes.
I tag...Lyndsay Wilding, Jonelle Morris, and Annie Hansen to do either this or the tag below (or both if you want!)

Four random things I love about my husband:
1) His love of spam and processed cheese. The guy is easy to please when it comes to dinner.
2) He loves Neil Diamond just like me!
3) He always puts his family before himself.
4) He is a walking pun. I think he mainly says them to get a reaction out of me. I try to act disgusted, but end up laughing anyway.

Four jobs I’ve had:
1) CPD (Centerville Parks Dept.) Mowing, trimming, weeding, cleaning, etc. of parks and cemetary. I even got to bury my fair share of dead people! Even with that, probably my favorite job.
2) Packer at Bailey's moving and storage. Don't recommend this unless you have fun people to work with. Only thing that made it remotely fun.
3) Great Harvest Bread. Man I miss the free loaves!
4) Receptionist for Human Resources at Zion's Bank.

Four movies I have watched more than once:
1) The Princess Bride
2) Napoleon Dynamite
3) Remember the Titans
4) What About Bob? Priceless

Four TV shows I watch:
1) The Office. How do they do it-it's sheer genius
2) Lost. Love the mystery of it all.
3) Way more Super Why (PBS kids) than I would like.
4) Wipeout-haven't watched it a whole lot, but always fall off the couch laughing when I do. Guess I am a sucker for slapstick comedy-that's what you get growing up with 4 brothers!

Four places I have been:
1) Washington D.C.
2) San Diego-going again soon!
3) Sao Paulo, Brazil.
4) Ohau, Hawaii

Four of my favorite foods:
1) Rice and Beans (Brazilian style, of course)
2) Potatoes! Mashed, fried, scalloped, whatever-just however I can get them!
3) A good steak-medium to medium rare. I like 'em mooin', just a little
4) Strawberry Trifle (mouth now watering)

Four places I would like to visit:
1) New Zealand
2) Italy
3) Spain
4) The Southern U.S.-mainly just to eat!

Four things I am looking forward to in the coming year:
1) welcoming our new girl!
2) Going to San Diego-especially because it will be almost free to go! Don't worry, we had to go to one of those sales-tactic seminars to earn it.
3) hopefully mastering my new camera and photoshop (as much as that is possible)
4) getting back in shape. It's been way too long since I've been in a good exercise routine!
