Things you should know about me if we're going to be BFF's :)

Something fun for a Sunday:

I love love love love love being a stay at home Mom. There is no part of me that misses ANY part of working outside the home. Not at Dutch Bros or as a phlebotomist or as a medical assistant. And there is NO part of me that wishes I had gone to college, thank you very much.

I am a vegetarian. But I do not like mushrooms or eggplant and on my pizza I only want cheese. No peppers or onions or spinach or anything else. Just cheese.

I'm a sports fan. I have my own fantasy football team, I understand the game of football and basketball. I love the NFL (Go Saints!) the NCAA Basketball and Football, the NBA and College Volleyball. I watch it, I enjoy it, I know what I'm talking about...and my husband loves this about me :)

I love bread. Biscuits, French Loaf, Rolls and France would get along just fine.

I love classic movies. Not classic like "80's"...those aren't classic. Classics are movies with Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant and Grace Kelly. Classics are Hitchcock films. So thankful my husband and I are on the same page with this!

                   Don't really care that my house isn't in perfect clean order every day.

I buckle my purse to the cart in certain may guess which ones.

Don't touch my very pregnant belly unless I know you really well and you have asked me first. But just to be sure...don't.

                    The only reality TV I like is on TLC ( I love me some Duggars!!)

Play dough dried on my hand makes my skin crawl. I hate it...I need special gloves or something.

Don't slurp, talk with food in your mouth, smack your mouth while eating or scrape your fork across your plate. I actually just really don't like hearing people eat or watching them eat. Eew.

I'm a disposable diaper using, vaccination getting, sometimes fast-food purchasing, EPIDURAL LOVING, made my own baby food, recycle my cans, cartoon watching, Umpqua milk buying.... Mom.

My husband is my best friend, and we are downright passionate about one another. I make no apologies.

        If you're allergic to cats, take Zyrtec before you come over. And get over the fact that you will leave with cat hair on your shirt :)

                  I have webbed toes on one foot. I'm a hardcore Oregonian.

My husband has the best voice ever. EVER. EVER. I'm not lying. He really does.

My son has the most tender heart. I don't know another 2 year old like him.

I want to go to:
Germany, Poland, Austria, Ireland, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Morocco, France, England and the Holy Land. And many more....

I LOVE learning and studying the history of WWII. I'm constantly looking for new books and when I go to Germany/Austria/Poland I plan on going to many of the camps and doing as much research as I can. There is a train tour you can take  to Auschwitz-Birkenau and other places and I would love to do that.

        My husband and I both have these HUGE popcorn bowls. They are massive. And we make the best popcorn and we each eat our own bowl. Don't get me started on calories or's so good and we don't eat it every day!

I like acting. I was Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice my FRESHMAN year. Played Poo-Bah in my 8th grade play and was The White Witch from Narnia in our church's production of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Along with lots of other little fun parts for church and things.

A downside to being a pastor's wife is people feel like they kind of 'own' you. They say things before they think about them and they expect things from you that just aren't okay. You're on display for all to see, including your children. Constantly praying for patience because this can get really difficult.


I'm really really competitive. betta watch yourself ;) No really...I am.

     I am so darn excited I am having twins. It's a special gift from amazes me that He believes that we can handle! (With HIS help obviously!!)



  1. Hmmm, a lot of those traits show up in your mom, and uncles. Must be genetic...

    Uncle Lyle

  3. My mom buckles her purse in the cart at stores too! I used to think she was crazy ;)
    I'm a football lover too :)

    Happy 2011!

    with love,

  4. Wel, it's nice to meet you! CLicked on your comment on 3 under 3. Congrats on making it so far with your twin pregnancy...I am a mom to 11 year old twin boys, a 9 year old boy and 5 year old B/G twins. Twins are amazing, fun, hard work, and a trip!! But a trip well worth taking and inevitable at this point, right?!!. Are your boys identical? Ours are fraternal, but it always amazes me how people think they look so alike...they really don't! I am glad you also have the experience of a singleton. Wishing you the very best of luck and my best bit if by a schedule!!!

  5. So much in common, sister. I love basketball, bread, truly classic movies, disposable diapers, WWII stuff, and I want to travel all over the place. However, we part at mushrooms. But you can't be perfect. ;)

  6. Love this! What a fun post... getting to know you... getting to know all about you...
