Whats your therapy?

so....I know you love to hear about my life with a broken ankle so...

where to begin!

It seems everyone does something for themselves that keeps them sane.  for instance...I used to work out hard...
I will admit that I have figured out how to work out with a broken ankle. but that mad man satan always seems to remind me that I can't do a whole lot of the things I love....I know I know, get the heck out of my head dude!!!

anywho today I discovered a new form of therapy...get ready for it... CLEANING!
I do love a clean living space and throughout the day I keep things tidy
but I am talking dusting, crawling in the back of cupboards, organizing your sock drawer kind of cleaning.  The kind of cleaning that I never associated with words like enjoyable...

I have had friends who have told me of their finding comfort in cleaning, and my good friend Monica Gellar is an extreme clean freak.  Who knew I would ever be able to understand.

Why did I need this therapy?  sometimes you just do;)

Oh also doodling awesome family portraits in your journal is a good one.

As Mrs. Leavitt says...most of these are silly

unless they are from your FREAKIN BEST FRIEND!
here are the rules:
1. post these rules.
2. post a photo of yourself and 11 random things.
3. answer the questions set for you in the original post.
4. create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5. go to their blog and tell them they've been tagged.


QUESTIONS FROM KARLY:

1. What is one talent that you have but usually keep to yourself?
I feel weird even writing it now but...believe it or not I am pretty musical.  I have always had a good ear and can pick up quickly on most things music.  If I have the drive I can learn to play many many things on the piano (I took lessons for like 8 years when I was a young en), and I get better at the guitar daily.  AND I have always claimed my voice isn't great but guess what...I have recorded myself singing and playing the guitar and it sounds great! (so i think) ...but yeah...even if you ask some of my really good friends they wouldn't describe me as musical even a little bit.  
2. What was one of your favorite Halloween costumes you've ever worn? 
My Mom made me this AMAZING Bell costume in 8th grade.  it rocked!!!  
3. What's the last dream that you remember having?
I don't remember really, but a few months ago I had a sweet dream about helping Ninja turtles fight crime.  (as I am writing these things I realize how nerdy I am)
4. Have you ever met a celebrity?
I met David Archuletta!!!!! IN THE TEMPLE!!!!!!
5. Favorite EXOTIC animal?
I love animals... especially Beluga whals and puppies 
6. Favorite high school memory?
highschool was oh so fun...but I loved getting into trouble everyday after school with Tamra and Chynna my Sophmore year.  We did way to many stupid things together...
7. What is your dream job?
It would be cool to be an ESPN anchor woman.  OR a trainer on the Biggest Loser but without the tv cameras
8. Favorite TV show growing up?
Arthur...
9. Do you love mini cadberry eggs as much as I do?
Given the chance maybe
10. Can you hula hoop?
YES!!!
11. Why do you blog?
At first I was just bored.  Then I realized that I just wanted people to hear about the funny things that happened in my Family.  Now I do it so my mom can keep better tabs on me;) and its FUN


so....I liked Karlys questions so they can be yours

I tag YOU

Ammon and Tamra are bloggin it. 

Life with my Boys.

The good life.

good luck ladies:)

Southern hospitality

Here we are again in North Carolina!!!

the drive out here this year although faster (we played a lot less) was still an adventure.

No, we didn't blow a tire in the middle of a torrential downfall with tornado sirens filling our ears.   (Thank goodness)

but I did introduce Chase to the wonders of southern antique shops...HE LOVED IT! recently I introduced him to the awesomeness of Goodwill, but I think he liked the antique shop even better:)

personally I get a rush from walking through the isles wondering about the previous owners and the many adventures they surely had:) Surprisingly I don't even dwell on the germs very much.

anywho I didn't blog very much last summer...I didn't have internet and I was super busy dealing with my new found love for Chase friggen Moffat:)  But I have vowed that this summer will be very different THIS IS WHY

there are 10+ wives coming out this year...what does this mean? It means that I will not spend my days alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I prayed that I could learn to love it out here and my prayers were answered in more ways than one.   It was always hard for me when Chase would carry on about loving NC sooooo much and all his amazing memories, and how he would love to live here.  When if I would even think about NC I got a feeling of disgust.  (yes I know that I am immature and dramatic Mom)

well I decided to have a great time here:) and so far so good!! It really is so beautiful here and the Moxie crew have really become my good/great friends.  Who was I kidding? last year I should have been so great full that they took a strange hippie girl into their circle of friendship with open arms. AND the weather outside right now is 84 degrees....that's not so bad either.

Oh and the people here and along the way.... ROCK! we truly met some gems...and I mean it.

We stopped in OK and saw my Brother his beautiful wife and my ADORABLE nephew:)

we stopped somewhere in Texas it was so late at night I am not sure if Chase knows where it was either.  It did smell like cows when we woke up:)

We went to dinner on Music Bl. in Nashville.  IT WAS AWESOME! seriously if you're driving through there please stop:)

We stayed the night in what looked like a giant southern mansion right outside Gaitlenburg TN (highly recommend this place it was inexpensive and BEAUTIFUL!

Oh and stop in Gaitlenburg too its awesome.

and the smokey mountains... always take the long way y'all the smokey's are gorgeous gorgeous

anyways.  I love my Husband:) I loved having an adventure with him across the USA again. :)

Crusin in Cabo

the cruise was SO FUN! 

I think especially because we were with 167 other Moxie members most of which are our friends, some of which are our very good friends. 

crusin? was a great time! the only complaint I had was not being a big fan of the food.  Turns out I am way picky.

Cabo? we explored it on scooters, hit up a sketchy taco bus, got a $20 hour massage, held a baby jaguar, para sailed, went snorkeling,  ate at a restaurant where the shopping came to us, and applied a whole lot of 75 spf.
