Take this test!

You're yellow, the color of joy and energy — two things you definitely bring to everyone around you. It's hard for anyone to be sad or lonely in your presence; your sunny disposition and cheery outlook just won't allow it. The warmth of your personality shines through in the kindness you show friends and family (and strangers, too). Always ready with a lighthearted joke or heartfelt compliment, you know how to make people feel good about themselves, so they can't get enough of you. Yellow is a warm and inviting color for a warm and inviting person — you!

Can I just say that anyone who knows me knows this quite accurate. I've been known to not make the best impressions in fact some say they thought I hated them...well we won't go there...but it takes a while for me to warm up to people when I first meet them, so I apologize in advance for those yet to meet me!!!

My "Top Ten" (Copied from Heather)

I'm taking Heather's challenge and creating my own "Top Ten" of stuff I love. And these are not in order, its just what came to mind first!!!!

1. Shopping- Being in a house creates a challenge for my love of shopping.
I'm totally obsessed with shoes and beautiful handbags and I really love
splurging on them. I have been working in a women's clothing boutique
since it opened in 2006 in OC and I love admiring all the newest fashions
that come out each season. Unfortunately they do not cater to us modest
folk so I admire from a distance.

2. My dogs- So I really didn't think I was as much of a dog lover as I have become, but apparently I'm bordering on crazy. We have Bailey our dog we got as a puppy and he is the sweetest thing ever. We got Chanel last September and then we were blessed with a litter of puppies! I totally enjoy having them around when I work from home, I feel totally safe withe them by my side!

3. My darling husband- I couldn't get away without him on my list, and I promise the dogs don't actually come before him....Rob is a totally ambitious entrepreneur and I love him for it. He is very active and plays softball and hockey and is a big competitor. He is a very direct person and loves to speak his mind, sometimes that takes people offguard but I've come to appreciate that openness in him. He used to be a marine (I can't say former because he'll correct me and tell me "Once a marine, always a marine"). Oh and he has E totally crooked's pretty freaky!

4. My friends- I can't believe how lucky we are to be in this ward! I really have enjoyed getting to know everyone here and so grateful for the friendships I have. I have loved our "Girls Nights Out" and Scrapbook night (no I don't scrapbook, but I like to chat) and I can't wait for even more good times. And I have to give a shout out to Kyra- she likes to copy my hair color and paint colors but I love hanging out with her and taking her excercise classes, one of these days I'm really going to be in shape and it's all because of her!

5. The Internet- Say what? I spend so much time on the internet it's just crazy, but the internet allows me to work from home and that is so awesome!!! And I email all day every day, it's the only way for me to actually stay in touch with everyone- I'm not much of a phone talker, I get really distracted and forget what I'm saying.

6. My sisters- I have a great relationship with my sisters Sam and Lissa, they were out of the house and starting their lives by the time I was in high school so just in the past couple years we have really bonded and I love our monthly 3-way chats on the phone (this is the only time I'm good on the phone) we really have a great time together and I love them so much!

7. My Young Women- I have a calling as Laurel advisor so I get to teach them each Sunday. It's been almost 2 years in this calling and I feel blessed every day! We love to laugh and joke around but they really have an amazing spirit and they are all a great example to me. I also totally enjoy the women I get to serve with.

8. The GMC Acadia- Random I know, but I just went and test drove this car and it is my dream car! It is the perfect car for me, because it is the perfect mix of luxury and truckness. I can't wait to get one someday!

9. Books- So no I haven't read the "Twilight" series everyone is talking about but I will soon. I love to read, it is my favorite hobby to curl up on the couch and read for hours.

10. LA Fitness- I just got my membership there 2 weeks ago and I have been going on a regular basis and I love it! I have been waiting patiently for this to open and now I'm really enjoying getting back into shape. And I love my step classes with Kyra! And Sarah Robinson Jr and I get to go together and that is so cool. Anyone else that would like to go anytime just let me know!

Puppies Everywhere!

This is Bengal one of the 6 puppies we have left. We accidently had a litter of dogs, (someone wasn't wearing protection!) and we are now overwhelmed with dogs at our house...don't worry the puppies stay outdoors so my house doesn't stink too much. They have been so much fun to have around, I love each one of them and their little personalities, but we need to find good homes for them ASAP!!!

We call this one Fuzzy well cause she is extra fuzzy, but is such a lover!

This is our darling Bob, the only fawn one we had in the entire litter, he is so freakin cute, he is exactly like Bailey the dad, but cuter cause he's so itty bitty!

This is Bubba, he is the one that thinks he is a lap dog and as soon as someone sits down he's right there in your lap.

This is Georgie, he just likes to hang out and be near you, and he has so much extra skin on him that he has yet to grown in it's just adorable. I totally carry this one around like a baby over my shoulder (just cause he lets me)

And last but certainly not least this is Big Bertha, she is our biggest dog, I mean this girl can eat! She has the biggest belly I've ever seen, but she loves being held, I can't really pick her up anymore though cause she is huge!!!
