I'm posting this on my blog because I can be kind of a private person, and although I loved reading other facts on facebook, I can't bring myself to post this on there...so, for those that read my blog 8 things about me:
1-I'm 28 yrs old and I still don't know how to whistle. On several occasions, Rick has tried to teach me, which always end in chuckling and bursts of laughter. I'm sure I look ridiculous trying
2-I also can't make myself go cross-eyed to save my life. I've tried but it makes my eyes water and hurt
3-I may be the most ticklish person alive and in all the weirdest places
4-I am extremely hard on myself and I care what people think about me-I wish I didn't.
5-I'm not easily offended and therefore think others aren't either. This gets me into trouble. I end up sticking my foot in my mouth much too often.
6-when I was younger, I didn't like babies and obnoxious kids but pretended to like them in hopes it would change my mind because I always wanted a big family. I think my dislike stemmed from a traumatic babysitting incident
7-I used to work at the hospital and I loved it...my job now, I love even more!!!
8-I love learning about the body and the way it works-It's fascinating to me

Penny's costume for the earlier Trunk-or-Treat at my sister's ward- A little ghost
and Now for the real traditional Trick-or-Treating...
It was an excellent Halloween and Lizzie tells me to get ready for next Halloween already planning her next costume.
I also came up with a new oatmeal raisin (or chocolate chip) cookie recipe that I'm particularly proud of. It requires no butter or shortening and has better more nutritious, healthy ingredients. They come out sweet, soft, chewy and delicious. I love feeding my kids healthy treats!!
Happy Halloween Everyone!
The 29th was my eight year mark of the best eight years of my life. Rick and I were married and sealed to each other 8 years ago in the Salt Lake Temple and I've never looked back since. He is my best friend and the best decision I have ever made. I'm not going to say that it's been easy every step of the way. We've had rough patches like any relationship but we've worked through them and focused on the positive and it's been totally worth it. Three beautiful children later and we are still happy and going strong. I love Rick more now than ever and I'm happy to be his wife.
