And to the TWOS that I love!! (No song for this one)

So far we've had a great Luv-Day! The girls and I made Valentines this morning and then went to deliver some of them. I think today might be one of my favorite holidays.

Rylee showing some heart.

Visiting Grandpa & Grandma Burke at the office.

The girls having a good time.

Jayden's best shot of the day. She can be such a stinker when it comes to taking pictures, but this one is great!

Rylee and Jayden love you!

You're the one that I LOVE (ooh ooh ooh hunny)...

That's from the movie "Grease" for all of you who didn't grow up wishing you were Sandra Dee!!! I just want to give a shout out to the ONE that I LOVE! Tim is such a good man and he has brought so much happiness into my life. So Happy V-Day babe and to everyone else. We can all celebrate those that we love today!

Four years later and we've still got the heat!

What happens in January anyway?

I just realized what a slow start we are having to our year. We did not take one single picture in January. WOW what slackers! So here are a few from December. I will get back in action soon!

My fifth attempt at a Christmas Card (and still not a keeper)

Jayden trying to be Daddy

Rylee at the Monterey Aquarium
(what a great trip with Uncle Bo, Aunt Janet, and "Baby Belly")

The whole fam (isn't Rylee's face priceless?)

10 years ago today...
I was a junior at Alta Loma High School. This time of year I was likely getting ready for King's Ball. I'm pretty sure that I went with Eric Taggart that year. I was living at home (of course) and likely working for my Dad.

5 things on my to-do list today:
1. Fix Car
2. Collection Calls for work
3. Send out Playgroup email
4. Get ideas for our Anniversary getaway (any ideas???)
5. Laundry

I enjoy:
Pedicures (I really want one right now), getting mail (handwritten is best, but emails are great too), talking on the phone, managing my bank accounts, looking at old photos, fixing things, problem solving, going shopping and then returning it, writing in my journal, listening to my girls talk in sentences, One Tree Hill, speaking Spanish, surprises, girls night out, my husband doing dishes, chocolate, massages, Hallmark specials, and on and on and on.

What would I do if I were suddenly made a billionaire?
I would buy a house, a new car, and the Pottey Barn collections. I would donate to OSSO (the orphanage program I volunteered with). I would end world hunger and clothe the poor (sorry I'm getting carried away)! It would be great if a billion dollars could do that. I would definitely travel anywhere I wanted. I would hire a personal chef and a personal shopper. I would buy Target, IKEA, American Eagle, and a few others. I would save some for post-baby years for some surgical repair (ha ha).

3 of my bad habits:
(Only three?)
1. I procrastinate
2. I interrupt people while they are talking.
3. I don't floss

5 places I have lived:
1. Alta Loma, CA
2. Rexburg, ID
3. Ecuador
4. Provo, UT
5. New Zealand

5 jobs that I have had:
1. Nanny
2. Administrative Assistant (that means secretary)
3. Einstein Bagels Manager (which shmear would you like on that?)
4. Sylvan Teacher and "Prescriber"
5. Substitute Teacher

5 things people don't know about me:
1. I would love to be a singer or dancer or children's book author
2. I have a fear of heights
3. I want to start my own business
4. I want to be in school again
5. I love to write poetry (when I don't procrastinate doing it and it must rhyme)

I tag: Karen Rambow, Amy Cory, Melinda Woods
