Since it's my birthday weekend, I figured what better way to ring in 27 than talking about myself?! I wish it wasn't true, but I do like talking about myself (ha ha) so when I saw this fun post on my girl Pinky's blog, I knew I had to participate in the fun!

Four names that people call me other than my real name:

1- Barbie
2- Beba ("babe" in Spanish)
3- Mommy
4- Court (I don't really have nicknames, ha!) 

Four jobs I’ve had:

1- Arctic Circle (I went home and cried when I got hired because I was a snotty 16yr old and was way too good for fast food. Turns out that it paid the bills, until I changed jobs, and I made good friends! I'm still in contact with one, over 10 years later!)
2- Babysitting. (I was the queen of babysitting.)
3- Server (Even though I was only 18, Tony Romas hired me as a server. The bartender took care of all my alcohol orders.)
4- Hairstylist (I'm still at the salon I started at when I finished hair school, 8 years ago?) 

Four movies you’ve watched more than once:
1- Frozen
2- Tangled
3- Pride and Prejudice
4- Red

Four books I’d recommend:

1- The Alchemist 
2- The Mortal Instrument Series
3- Harry Potter (I bought the first book on audio for Eric since he refuses to open a book, ha!)
4- The Napping House (It's Mia's fave, ha ha!)

Four places I’ve lived:

1- Southern Utah
2- Northern Utah
3- Small town Southern Utah
4- Now you know why I'm so nervous to move to Arizona and start over new :) 

Four Places you have visited:

1- Boston
2- Hawaii
3- Mexico
4- Disneyland/California (All since being married) 

Four places I’d rather be right now:

1- Disneyland (Of course! Now that it's on my mind, ha ha)
2- The beach (A warm, sunny, tropical beach!)
3- Vegas
4- Snuggled in bed with Eric and Mia, watching a good movie. (Probably Frozen or Tangled ;)) 

Four things I don’t eat:

1- Cottage cheese
2- The fat on bacon unless it's totally cooked to a crisp. (I don't do chewy.) 
3- Black licorice
4- Mushrooms (Or at least I try my very hardest not to eat that fungus.)

Four of my favorite foods:

1- Pizza
2- Icecream
3- White chocolate covered popcorn
4-  Pasta (Does it get any healthier?? I really eat very healthy, I promise!)

Four things I’m looking forward to this year: 

1- Getting settled in Arizona! (Wish us luck! The nerves are coming on stronger the closer it gets to moving time!)
2- Taking Mia to Disneyland.
3- Having friends and family come stay with us in Arizona! We love having company come stay!
4- Lots of mommy + me activities! (Dance, tumbling, swim lessons)

Four things I’m always saying:

1- I love you so much!
2- "Babe" (So much so that Mia called Eric "babe" all morning yesterday for the first time, ha ha!)
3- Sorry. (But not when it really counts, of course. Working on my pride, babe!)
4-  Shut up?! (As in: you're kidding me! Or: no way! Yeah, I'll be changin' my phrase real fast when Mia starts exclaiming "shut up?!" to everyone, ha ha!)

There you have it... lots of random little things about me that you never cared to know ;)

What part of Arizona are you moving to? I was born there, and moved back right after we got married! (Gilbert/Mesa area). It's a great place full of great people. Aside from the heat, it really is a wonderful place to live!

Happy Birthday!! |
I'm the same way when it comes to bacon - it must be crispy or I won't touch it. Surprisingly I am the exact opposite with toast - if it's too crispy I, or dark in any way I won't touch it.

Suget said...

Happy Belated Birthday!!

And I have a book recommendation for you! I really enjoyed the Paper Magician series!! haha
I loved reading your Vegas recap! I miss that place.
