Facebook copycat

So on facebook there is the thing going around called "25 random things" that you list about yourself. Since I went to all the mental work of doing it on facebook, I figured I might as well post here, too.

1) I have been thinking for a few days about what i could write here and I already can't remember anything I came up with.

2) My work with infectious diseases gives most people the heebie-jeebies; but I love it!

3) I weigh the same as I did in 6th grade. Luckily, I grew taller so I am not so chubby-looking.

4) I have the absolute worst hair in the world.

5) I grew up in a home where 8 people shared one bathroom. How? I don't know...

6) When I get old and retire, I am SO moving to St George-I love it there!

7) The person who invented mint chocolate chip ice cream is my hero and deserves a standing ovation.

8) Celestial Kingdom or bust!

9) I am a book worm- when I was kid, my mom used to ground me from books so that I would have to do other things. Maybe that is why I was a chubby kid, cuz I was so inactive.

10) My favorite sport is Tennis and my least fav is volleyball.

11) My favorite flowers are lilies and daffodils.

12) Any day is a great day if I am wearing fun socks-none of that boring, white stuff. But no toe socks either.

13) I went skinny dipping once in a swimming pool in the middle of Salt Lake City.

14) I would rather not take a shower than have to take a shower in cold water. No thanks!

15) Brasil is my second mother country.

16) Cold weather is the bane of my existence.

17) That said, I love Rexburg, Idaho! But mostly just because it has Ricks College and fun memories.

18) I am actually having more fun writing these than I thought I would :)

19) I am a blog-stalker. So everyone send me blog address so I can stalk you!

20) I flaunt the fact that my family owns a bunch of horses, yet I don't think I could saddle one by myself and, quite frankly, horses scare me anyway.

21) Kids are cute. I want some.

22) My favorite cartoon strip is Calvin and Hobbes. Ha! It cracks me up just thinking about it.

23) I really don't like make-up; I only wear it so that my mom won't nag me about improving my appearance.

24) My morning vitamin pop includes a multi-vit, odorless garlic, and a horsetail herbal supplement.

25) Yesterday I subscribed to the Better Homes and Gardens magazine. I'm wierd.

One more post. Real Quick. Choosing colors has definitely been the hard thing for me. I have seen so many cute things that I absolutely love that I have changed my mind everyday. But I think I have it.

This isn't a very good shot, cuz it is a composite of different tuxedo vest colors, but maybe you can get the idea. I wanted the blue because Peter and I both have blue eyes and I think a blue vest will look great on him. Then I chose the coral and yellow because it will Spring and I think they will be great colors for my bouquet flowers. I think I will have both the moms in a blue dress, with yellow corsages for the moms and grandmas; the dads with a blue vest and a coral bout...uh, flower; all the boys in both familys with a coral-colored tie, and all the girls in both families with a yellow shirt and either a white or black skirt. Feedback? Ideas? Thanks!

I found it!

After looking at four different stores, and trying on a million dresses-ok, maybe that's an exaggeration- I finally found MY PERFECT WEDDING DRESS!! Best day ever! It was a little more expensive than I wanted-but just a *tad* and it really is perfect for me. Love it!

And the best part is that it hardly needs altered at all. Really, it fit so perfectly. They may hem it depending on what shoes I decide to wear. And I had them sew in "push-up cups" so that I don't have to buy a $50 Victoria's Secret bra. Other than that-done! I spent Saturday at the Provo Bridal Fair and decided that:

1)Bridal Fairs are great ways to win free stuff if you talk to all the vendors and participate in all the contests. Someone won a free photo booth at their reception. How cool is that! It wasn't me :(

2)A Bridal fair is no place for somebody in a wheel chair (sorry Amy, for dragging you there)

3)I like all the free food and good deals. We got a 20% discount from the bed and breakfast we booked for our first night; and we rented all three tuxedos for only $150.

4)Utahns are very weird and obsessive over this whole wedding thing.

I'm Sorry :(

Dear driver of the tan-colored car;
I'm sorry I hit your car today on the freeway. I tried to stop, and then tried to swerve really fast, but all to no avail. I had forgotten that it was the middle of rush hour traffic and that there would be so much stop-and-go traffic. But at least we were both barely moving anyway and so all I did was scrape your bumper. You may not even know yet that I did, unless you see red paint there. Anyway, I pulled off to the side of the road and tried to motion you to come over too, but you just took off and so I have no way of redeeming myself for the damage done. I really did not want to be involved in a hit and run but that seems like what happened. Anyway, mr. driver of the tan-colored car, if you are out there, I would like to make amends with you.

Driver of the red car.
