… places I’ve visited: Hawaii, Norway, Florida

… cars I’ve owned: 1979 Datsun B210 named Chester, he was a chestnut brown color. I saved and paid cash for this car at a car auction, $4300 in 1980. My second baby and my favorite was my 1988, Jeep Cherokee. It was white, big and made me feel macho! Then I got married and we have had a plethora of cars. I have a 2002 Ford Expedition that is a family hand-me-done that I thoroughly love! I hope this is my last car for a long, long time.

… foods I love: Mexican with green sauce, pizza and fresh baked white bread with lots of butter!

… jobs I’ve held: My favorite jobs are in construction. I worked for Big-D Construction and Union Pointe Construction as a Receptionist, Estimating assistant, bid runner and various other things from 1989 to 1994. These were my favorite two construction jobs. I was also a Daycare Director that was licensed for 84 kids from 2004 to 2007. Not my favorite, but my most challenging.

… authors I love: Louis L'amour- I personally think he is the best western writer in history. Alistair MacLean is a spy, secret agent type writer. I love spy, secret agent stories. Today I am loving Stephenie Meyer's works.

… places I’ve lived: Utah - Salt Lake City, Ogden, St. George, Eagle Mountain, Saratoga Springs. Idaho - Rexburg. Hawaii - Laie. more place I've lived: Norway, many cities there.

… favorite hobbies: Crafting with many different materials. Cooking, baking and eating. Reading and writing.

… bones I’ve broken: My tailbone 3 times. Oops! that hurts. A broken baby toe. I have also torn my hamstring, very miserable. And this past weekend while camping, I tore a tendon in my foot/ankle. Miserable! I have not died yet from my injuries, and don't plan on it either!!

… TV shows I watch: 24, Bones, Lie to Me. .... more: Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. I watch all my shows on the internet, because we don't get free TV signal and I won't pay for TV!!

… songs that make me turn up the volume (and dance in my chair! I don't dance in my chair!): Enya, Cold Play's Viva la vida, and anything I grew up with that happens to find it's way to the radio station. Rarely but fun when they do!

… favorite drinks: Ice water! Hot chocolate and frozen lemonade, pink lemonade that is.

… fun board games: Scrabble, Yahtzee, Monopoly.

… stores I could spend a whole day in: Any hardware store, any kitchen gadget store and DI -or any second hand store!

… chores I put off as long as possible: Cleaning the bathroom, cleaning the house and cleaning the car. I guess cleaning is the thing I put off, but the funniest thing about cleaning is, that it really doesn't take that much time- unless you put it off too long. I just get distracted with the things I would rather do and enjoy doing.

… chores I kind of like: I like gardening, cooking and doing the dishes, organizing my crafts.

… things I would rather chew glass than do: My budget! Clean the garage! Dump the Trailer toilet!

… reasons I hate attending parties: I like small groups not parties! I always feel uncomfortable. I never know what to say.

… favorite dog breeds: I like Springer Spaniels, Cocker Spaniels and Labradors.

… things I just don’t get: Why Utah drivers are so inconsiderate. Why shoppers are inconsiderate. Why people in general are inconsiderate and can't get along or help others.

... things I like about Blogging: Learning about tons of different things. Making new friends. Sharing my ideas with others, communication with family and storing my things where I can get at them easily.

If you decide to do this, let me know, I'd love to read your answers! Read More......


  1. Ow! I hope your foot heals fast! I tore (as in completely destroyed) a ligament in my ankle in February 2008 and it took months and months and months of physical therapy. I didn't think I'd ever finish *L*

    I'm going to check out Alistair MacLean, I like that type of story too =)

  2. I hope your foot isn't causing you too much trouble. I'm so sorry to hear. I really enjoyed your are indeed fascinating!
