10 for Tuesday-All about me

So here is a list of things you may or may not know about me. It is after all my Birthday and in my family it seems to last for more than one day.

1- I am the second of 7 kids and got to "play mom" a lot growing up. We lived in the country and so I was babysitting since I was 11. Grandma was next door if we needed her though so no worries.

2- I was involved in 4-H quite a bit. I took sewing and cooking. I also showed sheep, chickens and attempted to show a horse. My horse did not love me. You know you have a tough animal when your father who has taught you your whole life to never give up encourages you to maybe give up on your horse after the 10th or 11th time he has thrown you off.

3- I was a thespian in high school. Me? Drama? No way! I did mostly behind the scenes stuff but did act in a couple plays.

4- I was always jealous of people who got to take exotic vacations when I was in school, so instead I combined the 2 and went to an exotic location for school--twice! BYU-H and BYU Jerusalem. (I attended all the BYU's except the real one.)

5- I love to teach. My favorite callings have involved teaching: Sunday School or Relief Society. Not a huge fan of primary yet, the only one was Sunbeams so I have yet to really experience that. It was more like glorified babysitting. With a prayer.

6- I don't like babysitting. I love my kids and I love my nieces and nephews. I even don't mind my friends children. When I was a teenager though, I really disliked it. I very rarely got called again when I babysat for someone. I cleaned the house and took good care of the kids, but I did not enjoy it and I am sure it showed. There was one friend of my moms that I babysat for repeatedly, she was single and had 2 daughters. Super cute but little devils. I kept going back though because she had season tickets to the Capitol Theater in Salt Lake and took me as her plus 1 to all the plays. I guess I just needed the right motivation.

7- I love to cook. I enjoy food. I bake mostly, but I also love to try new things. I watch Food Network like most men watch the NFL. I know I am weird.

8- I am an avid reader but have to make myself not read so I can accomplish other things. In college I never let myself pick up a book because I would not study if I did. I can read a book quick. I read New Moon and Eclipse in 3 days.

9- I sell Mary Kay Cosmetics and have for 9 years! Holy cow that is a long time. I am a lifer.

10- I love Christmas more than any other time of the year. Let the candy making begin!
