four for four

My friend Haily, she "tagged" me. 
Usually I am not a big fan of tags, but for Haily, I'll do anything. 
So here we go!
Four shows I watch: Hate to disappoint, but I really do not watch tv...partially because we do not own a television, and partially because I am just not into it.
I do like:
  1. The Office 
  2. Psych
Four things I am passionate about:
  1. Marriage: I really do not know what to say other than my marriage is possibly the most important aspect of my life. 
  2. Motherhood: In this season of my life, my life IS motherhood. 
  3. Faith: My faith is the reason I have joy. The reason I have hope. I couldn't truly live with out it.
  4. Goals: Big fan of goals. They keep me in check. There are a pair of really awesome boots I reeeeally want. But one of our goals is to be done with our student loans in 6 years, buying those boots are not conducive to our goal, we have a budget, and we stick to it. I think goals also give hope and excitement to the day. Chad and I really want to live abroad, having this as a goal provides a lot of motivation.
Four phrases I use a lot:
  1. "I know, right?!"
  2. "you can either choose 'option A' and have fun, or you can choose 'option B' and go in time out. It's up to you Lils." 
  3. "Where's my toothbrush?" (Lily is mildly obsessed with sneaking it, with the tube of toothpaste and sucking off the tooth paste.)
  4. "That's double rainbow cool." Please see what I mean HERE.
Four things I have learned from the past:
  1. Extremes and absolutes are always a bad idea: in politics, hair styles, diets, religion, parenting...
  2. ALWAYS follow the small promptings you feel.
  3. Someone will always be skinnier than you, someone will always be fatter, someone will always have a better voice than you, someone will always be tone deaf. Stop comparing.
  4. Get over yourself. You are not an exception, you are not entitled. 
Four things I did yesterday:
  1. Went to church, on time, lasted all of sacrament meeting, all with out Chad there to help (he had to work). This accomplishment proves that there is a God.
  2. Had dinner at a friend's house, and I officially want to steal all her furniture.
  3. Watched Rudolf
  4. realized I am an acclimated baby, it was 40 degrees out and I thought I was going to die.

Four places I want to visit:
Do you even understand how hard it is to narrow my list down to four? 
  1. New Zealand
  2. The Netherlands
  3. Greece
  4. Japan
Four things I am looking forward to:
  1. Chad getting home
  2. My sister's (Janell) wedding in the spring!
  3. Christmas
  4. sewing
Need something to blog about? Do this! Let me know if you do so I can read them.
