This is me challenge #5

I have taken a very long hiatus from blogging.  Too long.  I recently sat down with a few of my boys and we went back through my blog and we laughed about so many of the stories and memories that I had recorded.  I realized that this little history that I have created for us really is important, and it is something that I need to make time for.  Life is busy.  There will always be something else that I could be doing, but for now, I hope to take a few minutes each week to record the little things in our lives. 

I decided that I also needed to be better at keeping a record of my life, so that my children can get to know me better.  So here I go.  My first post back will be the ABC's of me from the "This is me challenge" that I started so long ago.

A- Anxiety.  I struggle with this.  I tend to be a worrier.
B-  Brett, my wonderful, awesome husband!
C-  Chocolate.  My favorite treat.  I could eat it every day!
Create.  I love to create and I love to encourage my children to be creative as well.
D-  Don Pericos.  My favorite Mexican food restaurant. Love Mexican food!
E-  Education.  I am currently going back to school to receive my BS in Marriage and Family Studies @ BYU-Idaho.  This is a great blessing in my life, and I truly believe that an education is worth all the effort!
F-  Fall.  My favorite season.
G- Green.  My favorite color, and the color of my eyes.
H- Hugs.  My son Austin gives the best hugs aka Austin hugs.
I-  Ice-cream.  I love mint chocolate chip ice-cream, and it always tastes better in a sugar cone.
J-  Job.  My first job was at Mac's Hobbies and Crafts in Utah. 
K- Kind.  I try to be kind to everyone.
L-  Laugh.  I love to laugh, but I don't like to be tickled.
M- Mother.  Best job ever!
Movies.  I love movies.  One of my favorite activities is family movie night!
N-  Notes.  I love the little notes that my boys write to me, and I keep every one!
O-  Oceans or mountains?  Definitely mountains!
P- Preschool.  I love teaching preschool to my son Ethan.
Q-  Quiet.  I am generally pretty quiet around people I don't know really well.  It takes me some time to warm up.
R-  Road trips.  I love to take road trips with my family. 
S-  Sons.  I have 4 of them.  I am a lucky Mom!
T- Temple. I am thankful for the blessings of the temple and the knowledge that I have that families can be eternal.
Teacher. It's what I want to be when I "grow up".
U-  Utah.  The place where I was born and raised. 
V-  Vegetables.  Don't love them. 
W- Warm.  I love warm blankets in the winter time. 
X-  Example.  I try to pattern my life after the example of my Savior Jesus Christ.
Y-  Yes.  I try to say yes to my children as often as I can.
Z-  Zinnia.  I love flowers.  I used to be a florist before I had children.
