Getting to Know Me



For hours and hours I could...
snuggle my little girls on the couch
read a book

I feel best about myself...
when I make Michael laugh
right after I get a haircut

I absolutely cannot stand...
mimes (not talking is just not natural to me)
dried spit in the bathroom sink


I am afraid of...
jellyfish--ridiculously so
dying while my children are still young

I love to splurge by...
getting a French pedicure
going out to dinner

I save by...
clipping coupons and shopping the sales
having compact fluorescent bulbs in my house

I am trying to work on...
not getting my feelings hurt so easily
pondering the scriptures more

In high school...
my best grades were in chemistry and French
I was on the Homecoming Court

In college...
I hardly ever spoke in class (except Folklore classes)
I graduated unmarried, unengaged--from BYU

I feel I'm a good mom when...
I take my kids on a outing (park, zoo, etc.)
my girls have hair bows in their hair

I regret...
being dropped by my piano teacher for not practicing enough
not keeping up my Romanian (but I have no one with whom I can keep it up!)

I could never have too many...
hours in a day
good friends

What about you?

Fun post! I love learning more about you. Did you ever get to do the List of 100 Corinne started? I'm not sure you were blogging then.

Cami said...

Yay! This is fun. I'll do it soonishy.

Daca vrei, noi putem sa scriem pe romaneste! I'll do this too! Fun Post!

Oh Melodie, mi-e dor de tine rau de tot! Intradevarul, nu stiu daca am ce trebuie sa-ti scrui pe romaneste, dar am sa incerc. Cel putin, ai tu sotul cu care poti sa vorbesti, nu-i asa? (How many hyphens did I miss in that? Two? And forty-seven spelling errors? Boy, am I rusty!)

Mendy said...

Joni, I wish I could comment on your blog! I am glad you are having such fun travels, though. I wasn't blogging in the 100 List era and I thought this might be a nice abbreviated version.

Jenni said...

Corinne said...

Is it a small world or what, Nicole!? I never even thought of you knowing Ruth and Ryan. Anyhoo, I can't get on your blog and don't know your email so I hope you read this again soon. I'm jealous you saw your sisters; I love those girls!! I love you, too! Can't believe you have three boys. Keep in touch.

I loved learning more about you!

We should go get pedicures one day!!! In time for sandal season. =)

Kellee said...

Ok, Mendy I did it, I'm now blogging like the rest of the world. Check me out! I love reading your blog because I feel I still know you from so far away.
