easy street

My first time back after a long blogging absence, thanks Sus, I needed an easy way to start again. Enjoy!

1. Where is your cell phone? dead, lying at the bottom of the stairs, opened.

2. Your significant other? Where is he? What's his name....oh, Matthias. Babysitting triplets. What?

3. Your hair? Freshly washed, air dried, and rather feathery.

4. Your mother? 24 hrs driving distance or an expensive flight from Utah... in an art class I believe. She's the best ever.

5. Your father? same, but driving home from work, listening to the BOM on CD I am sure. Love ya dad!

6. Your favorite things? Ty's dimple, Beckham's belly button, Matthias' everything.

7. Your dream last night? Lots of nightmares lately of getting into fights with family members. Weird. What does that mean?

8. Your favorite drink? Ice water with crushed or small round ice.

9. Your dream/goal? Besides raising happy, successful and independent boys, for myself I want to get a Masters Degree in something ... creative, learn Spanish, travel a lot, and be happy.

10. The room you’re in? Living room

11. Your hobby? Seriously, I wish I had something cool to put here, but I don't really. Maybe my hobby is trying out new and different things.

12. Your fear? Too deep for me right now.

13. Where do you want to be in 6 years? In a house of our own, done having kids, healthy, and happy, student loans paid off, and some time for myself.

14. What you’re not? ready for a third child. lazy.

15. Muffins? no thank you, but I do love those sunflower seed scones at bloomingfoods.

16. One of your wish list items? long underwear for winter running.

17. Where you grew up? SLC suberb

18. The last thing you did? put the kiddos to bed and then listened to them yelling a conversation to each other out of their separate bedroom windows for 10 minutes. I didn't sush them from loudness because it was so funny to me.

19. What are you wearing? Blue shirt I wore today, and have changed into comfy but all too large shorts that I bought shortly after I had Beckham.

20. Favorite gadget? Ipod

21. Your pets? none.

22. Your computer? Now that school has started and I don't have matt's coveted (by me) Macbook Pro, I am stuck with my $80 second hand Sony something or other piece of trash.

23. Your mood? Lonely and bored and wishing for a carefree night out.

24. Missing someone? Funny you should ask. Matthias come back home!

25. Your car? I don't care for cars. We have a grayish purple one with a bike rack on top. Now my bike, on the other hand, is a giant hybrid. Red and silver with a rack on the back. Love it.

26. Something you’re not wearing? Um, mascara, wedding ring, hair product, lingerie

27. Favorite store? Shopping online is all I do these days. Some favs: Athleta, JCrew, Bloomingfoods.

28. Like someone? I really like Renee Gilpin. She's pretty cool and makes me laugh.

29. Your favorite color? Yellow.

30. When is the last time you laughed? Laughed only 15 minutes ago at my sister-in-law's 7th anniversary post.

31. Last time you cried? During a confession with the Man Upstairs.

Thanks for the comment on my blog but I have to turn the tables on you for a sec. I look at you and you still look beautiful all the time, you are a fun mom, and you are so creative. I was actually thinking about using your idea of the cute emotion poster for my students to give as a gift of fathers day or mothers day. So really you are an inspiration to me. I hope I can be a great mom like you are to to your boys.

I'm so glad to see that you are back! I missed you! Um hobbies, you are so talented! What a fun post! Yes pampered chef has an awesome garlic press, I just used it on dinner tonight!

Hi Andrea.. I haven't been blog hopping for a while and it looks like I caught you at the right time!

I just want to say first of all, that I totally feel your loneliness. I am not lonely right now (although my husband is out playing a late game of basketball) but I remember those times like they were yesterday. And even though I should say it gets better after school, what I really want to say is that these are the times that make you strong and mold you into your REAL self. Maybe that is too deep for you too tonight, but when life is breezy and easy, you don't really have a chance to figure out who you are and what makes you happy. Thinking back to our difficult days in school, all I really remember is how close we were as a family. I am sure you are an independent person, but it's incredible how much you NEED your husband and family when you are so far from home, ya know?

Anyway, just wanted to say hi.. and hang in there.. and continue to find new, different things that make you happy.


ps. a 6 year plan to pay of loans is pretty speedy. We are on a 30 year plan.

pps. I often have dreams about fighting with people! Usually I am chewing someone's head off and I have no idea why. I have no clue what it means. Maybe you're stressed :)

Glad you are back... fun to see what you are up to.

Now I can say that things are the way they should be. Don't ever do that again or else I might just have to communicate with you over the phone! Man that would be absurd! You were meant for blogging/writing I love your posts, you are so witty and entertaining I am always amazed by my long lost sister-in-law. I love you Anj and miss you so much. WE WILL COME TO VISIT and that is that. I hope you get your cell phone charged soon because I might go all uncharacteristic and give you a call.

YEAH! This was a great way to get back in, and I love learning more about you. I am dying over the boys window conversation!!! I bet your neighbors loved it. And talk about flattering... I'm not funny, just absurd! (and by the way, it's still possible to have more children and be lazy - I know!)

Shawny said...

Anytime you're feeling bored in the evenings, give me a call. I'm usually being lazy and unproductive and could pop over for some girl talk!

Holly said...

yay! welcome back. i found your description of the place of the cell phone funny. although without any context, rather morbid! haha.

Sus said...

ooh, i just learned so much about you!
