I Got Tagged

I Got Tagged! I was tagged by Corie Green & Heather Wrong, I mean Wright; If you get tagged, Link the person who tagged you (I don't know how to do that, I just copied and pasted this first part).

Mention the rules on your blog.
Tell 6 unspectacular quirky things about you or your family.

Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them. Or 3...whatever.

1. "I wear a size 6 but a 7 feel so good I buy a size 8": I can quote Steel Magnolias and I usually do at least once a day, more often if I'm around my sisters. I remember the first time I watched that movie I was in High School, home "sick" and watched it upstairs with my mom. I cried my eyes out! Since then I watched it everytime I was home for anything or couldn't find anything else to watch. That's still common today, it's my default. I really don't have very many DVD's (seriously maybe 25 if you don't count all the kid church movies I have) so if I don't want to watch Juno or Billy's Steel Magnolias! It makes me laugh, I love the closeness with the friends in the movie. I also love to torture myself with heartwrenching stories...because I'm a girl, and girls do that. "Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion."

2. "There is no such thing as natural beauty..just look at me! It takes some effort to look like this!": I wake up at 5:59, a minute before my alarm goes off every morning. I makes me crazy. Thing is, I've always wanted to be one of those "I don't need my alarm clock" people. Just wake up when it's time to wake up. The sound of the alarm is SO ANNOYING! Someday I hope to be able to disable it.

3. "How precious is this wedding gonna get I ask you?" "Mama and I, we agree on one thing...THE GROOMS CAKE. It's awful." I pulled my favorite wedding together in 12 days this summer. J.D. and I got engaged February 8, 2008. We had to submit info to the First Presidency so we could be sealed in the Temple. It took a while to get letters in/approvals/etc. We got a letter from President Monson on July 14 saying we were good to go! We asked our parents what they were doing next weekend, they said nothin so I called the San Diego temple, my mom booked hotel rooms, I bought/altered a dress, picked out pretty flower with sea shells, got our friend/photographer Nick to take the weekend! It was amazing. In OUR case, it didn't take a year to plan a wedding. Just a few days and focus. I think about those couple weeks all the time. I loved how it happened and wouldn't change any of it!!!

4. "Oh Drum would never point a gun at a lady. He's a real gentleman. Bet he takes the dishes outta the sink before he pees in it!" J.D. cooks dinner every night. It's so yummy. He has all his pot and pans goin...I just stay clear. He makes yummy chicken, steak, hamburgers, spaghetti, potatoes always squash and zucchini. Yum. I do the dishes. Yuck.

5. "The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize!" I know I blog about the dog its lame, but Roxy is a super sweetie. When we were researching dogs and I learned about English Bulldog personalities I thought it would be too good to be true. But she's even better! I think the greatest thing about her is that shes not THAT smart. So she doesn't sneak off, she doesn't get into stuff...she doesn't 'figure' stuff out. She is polished enough that all I have to do is grab my keys and she goes in her cage. When we eat she goes to her bed (and stares) and she can sit, lay down and play dead. But only all together and only in that order. :) She's super friendly and meet new friends every time I walk her. Right now we're working on keeping her out of the kitchen (it's just too small) and getting her to stop barking so loud when she thinks someone is opening the back gate. It's so annoying. "I heard you got so screwed you cut your dog out of your will and had an ungrateful nephew put to sleep"

6. "JONATHAN! DON'T YOU DECORATE YOUR SISTER'S CAR WITH CONDOMS, IT'S TACKY!" "Well if you and Jackson want to practice safe're all set!": Forget that!

We're having a honeymoon baby!
"Looks like two pigs fightin under a blanket" I'm about 11 weeks according to me and my physician. I go the Gyno next Monday and find out more. But I feel great! Just a little tired, boobs are huge and they hurt, and I can't chew gum without gagging. We are SO excited for a Barker baby! It feels weird being pregnant. I call Jessica everyday. It makes me feel better. J.D. spoils me, just like he did it's awesome.
"Smile! It increases your face value!": I tag Brittney, Shauna and Kristen

New hair...

I'm not so bleach blonde anymore. It's pretty light brown with blonde highlight still of course. I was being silly taking "myspace" pictures before work this morning.

I just hate right now.

Where else can I get local news? Azcentral is the most ridiculous source. And I always have to read the comments and they just piss me off. GRR.

What do I do? Bookmark a local TV station website? They seem so lame!

This morning at work we had a 2 hour conference call, all good stuff!! But this happened a couple times and it drives me nuts. When someone says something like "Now, what does the mean for Phoenix?"...then the same person pauses and says 'well' as if he has just heard the question for the first time in his life and he has to come up with something on the spur of the moment then when answered completely and competently acts as if that was AMAZING! The pause and the 'well' are the worst part.

No big deal. Just a blent (blog vent.)
