It's an honor just to be nominated :)

WOW, my first blog award!!! Thanks Ang. Even though you would encourage me if I wrote about nothing but potatoes, I'll take it.

I finally got around to finishing this post!! Not sure what I could possibly tell you that you don't already know but here goes...

1. I look forward to nap time and bed time. I adore my boys, and I love it when they are awake, but I also look forward to a break when they take a nap and unwinding when they go to bed. Around 5ish I'll give myself a little pep talk via monologue that says, "OK self, you can do it, suck it up just a few more hours." I have heard other Mother's talk about how they miss their kids when they go to bed, that is wonderful and God bless you for it, but this Mommy needs a break.

2. I don't have a single bra that really fits me and gets the job done right now. Between pregnancy, nursing and lots of cheep ones between fluctuation sizes this girl needs to invest in a some new digs for the girls - I know that is TMI, but I'm just being honest. Stacey (from TLC not my husband, although he would probably agree) and Clinton would not be happy with me.

3. I watch Gossip Girl and The Hills among other ridiculous shows and I love them :)

4. I sneakily skip pages when I'm reading to Stacey, but only if the book is really long and boring (usually the Disney ones that are the movie condensed into a book - yawn). Yea, now that it is out there I'm going to have to stop that. This is feeling more like a confessional than honesty.

5. I'm addicted to reading your blogs!! And I get really angry if no one has new updates. I'm not sure when this became such a consistent part of my daily life, recently I guess since most of my friends just started blogging. I look forward to checking my google reader daily and seeing what is going on. I also get really excited when I get comments on my posts. I know this makes me a loser, but it is true. One of our little angels recently bent our computer's power cord making it very difficult to get a full charge and do much of anything on the computer and even without it for a few days I was lost!! OK maybe not lost, but I really missed it.

6. I'm obnoxious. When I watch video of myself mostly from High School or College, I want to tell myself to STOP TALKING!! Just last weekend Stacey was videoing and I immediately went into some obnoxious character voice when he asked me a question - seriously what is wrong with me?

7. I am a rule follower. I'd like to be a rebel that thought rules were made to be broken, but I'm not. I've been this way since I was little, my parents say they would usually just have to ask me once and I would obey. Hum, wonder when my boys are going to start that?

8. I'm not very good at cooking and I really don't enjoy it very much. SB listed this among her honest thoughts, but I have to jump on the bandwagon. Yes, I manage to get dinner on the table and I can follow a recipe no problem, but cooking is more of chore to me than a delight. When I see other women who seemingly effortlessly whip up amazing meals and truly enjoy every minute of it I am insanely jealous.

9. We had to put Wyatt and Stacey in time out a few times recently for arguing with each other or fighting over something (and if I'm being honest I often get lazy and use time out when really a spanking is in order, but in this case the boys just needed to sit down and chill out so we could talk). For Stacey this is a very common procedure, but it is totally new for Wyatt. I know it is completely not the point, but he looks so cute sitting there waiting for us, and I think he is almost excited because he has seen Stacey there a million times and thinks he is such a big boy. We were giving Stacey the usual talk and then turned to Wyatt. We asked him to tell Stacey he was sorry and he walked over and said "torry tatey" and gave him a huge hug. Seriously, he could have gotten away with murder the rest of the night.

10. I'm completely depressed that Christmas is over :(. I look forward to December and all the traditions, family time, focus on our Savior, decorations, smells and excitement that go along with it. So when it is over and it is time to take down the tree and the lights and return to a normal pace of life it is a little Debbie Downer for me. And if you're still reading this you're probably thinking no problem, that took me a year to read so buck up Christmas 2009 will be here in no time, yikes sorry for the long post!

"When you receive the prize, you must write a post showing it, together with the name of who has given it to you, and link them back. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in their content or design. Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing that they were prized with 'Honest Weblog'.

I'm nominating some seriously wonderfully honest bloggers: Wendi, Karla, Chrys, Katy and Stacey. Feel free to share or just bask in the glory of this prestigious award. :)

Love, love, love this post! Thank you for doing it. I think I can totally agree on most points with you (the rules maybe not so much)! Little Wydit in time-out...what could he ever do, that he couldn't win you back with that insane cute smile of his! About nap time, I still have Ryan in his room at 5 for at least an hour...he'll be in there at 12! And I too am a computer junkie, sad but HONEST!

YOU DID IT!!! So proud. And really - if you ever put that sweet baby in time out again - I am coming to get him. (and telling CPS to come back!) Can't wait to catch up this weekend. AND - WE HAVE TO START BACK ON OUR MONDAY DINNERS!!!!! Love you!

Ok, as Clinton would say, "Lock and Load" the girls!! :) and 2--I'm leaving you a comment, are you excited???????? and 3-----if you're calling you obnoxious, then you're calling me obnoxious. Oh to be meek and mild. (sigh)
