I've Been Tagged...

Kristen tagged me, so here goes.

3 Joys:
***Diet Coke. Hands down. I used to mock people who were so addicted to their beverage, but seriously it brings a smile to my face every time.
***Sleeping in. I wish I could do it more often and I'm lazy enough that I would every day if work would allow it. What can I say--I'm a night owl at heart.
***Sewing. I know its nerdy but I just made a quilt and it was SO fun. I haven't made one in years and I had forgotten how addicting it is! And not only was it fun but now I have a perfect, made-to-order blanket. :)

3 Fears:
***Cats. I know its irrational, but I am terrified of them.
***Pregnancy. Kudos to all you moms out there--the thoughts of having something else controlling my body is almost more than I can handle.
***I don't know, natural disasters? I hate seeing footage on the news after earthquakes and tornadoes and such--it always makes me cry. After this latest earthquake in China I was about to jump on a plane and head over there...who knows what I would have done once I was there...


3 Goals:
***Finding a place to live by myself. I've lived with roommates for almost 5 years and I've decided it's time to be on my own. I have had so much fun over the past few years but lately I've been getting the itch that it would be nice to have a little more space (this tiny bedroom is killing me!) and be a little more independant.
***Growing my hair out. I haven't had long hair since I was 14, and everytime I get close I get frustrated and cut it off. I'm convinced this time it's gonna happen.
***Being more clean and organized. I'm hoping goal #1 will help with this--there just is no room for things so they end up on my bedroom floor or thrown over my desk chair
.

3 Current Obsessions:
***Boot Camp. I started it this month at the gym and it is amazing. It kicks my butt and I'm always sick after, but I feel so good! I'm contemplating doing it again next month, but it's at 6:30 a.m., which gets in the way of sleeping in...
***Looking for apartments. Someone refered to me as an apartment lurker--its true! I find 'for rent' signs everywhere and I've talked to what seems like every landlord in the valley, but just you wait--I'll find that perfect place!
***Reading all the books I have stacked on my shelf but haven't had time to. This one is gonna take a while.

3 Random Facts:
***I have a pair of gym shoes that ONLY are worn indoors. I'm pretty anal about it--I don't even walk from my car to the gym--I wear a different pair and change. I found this amazing pair of aerobic shoes and they always seem to wear out so quickly that I was trying to save them some extra wear-and-tear, but then they stayed so white and clean and by then it was habit...
***I HATE packing for vacations. It seriously stresses me out and I end up taking 4 times as much stuff as I really need and don't use most of it. I'm staring right now at the full bag of clothes I didn't wear but have to unpack from my last trip.
***When it comes to renting movies or choosing restaurants, I'd rather go with something I've seen/eaten before that I know is good than risk getting something disappointing. Not very adventurous, I know.


I'm tagging Amie, Melani, and Lindi.

Thanks for playing! I learned some fun new things about you that I didn't know! The tennis shoes...you're not alone, I've "heard" of people doing this.

I am so with you on the packing thing. It stresses me out that I have to pack and to make sure I get everything. But I end up taking more shoes then anything and shirts that I never will wear...just to unpack them when I get home. Annoying! And just to send a memory message back to you, I'd have to say the swimming suit and shower moment was awesome. But a lot of my memories are all our fun midnight chats in our underwear:) I also remember the first time I met you. I thought you were so so cute and I felt bad that Niles made you go on a tour of our ward. If I would have known I would have saved you:)-Sorry for the long comment
