Tag, I'm It

Here are the rules:
#1 Link to the person that tagged you. http://jkgiron.blogspot.com/
#2 Post the rules on your blog.
#3 Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog.
#4 Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
# 5 Leave a comment on their blogs so that they know they have been tagged.

Mkay here goes... I am thinking to myself that this is going to take me forever!!

#1 I hate Jello. I used to like it when I was little but I can't stand to eat it now. I especially HATE when it gets that thick skin on the top... EWW. And Jello with fruit in it is even worse. From my last tag you probably know that I don't like fruit...

#2 Ok this is gross about me... I secretly like blackheads and ingrown hairs... there I said it. I don't like when I have them, but I LOVE when other people have them. I LOVE getting them out. Sometimes Grant will catch me staring at his face and he'll say "See somethin' you like?"

#3 I have a weird obcession with office supplies. Whenever I'm at the store I always walk down the office supplies aisle and I just want to buy everything. Like fresh post-it notes, new pens, markers, crayons, even glue. It's really weird... I can usually control myself and not buy anything though!

#4 I used to have hammer toes. My toes were curled over so I was almost walking on my toe nails. They were so ugly!! And I never wore open toed shoes until I met Grant. He told me he liked my ankles so I started wearing strappy sandles. And then finally I had surgery in '03 to straighten them. I'm so happy about it!

#5 Grant and I met in 1999 as juniors in high school. So we have been dating or married for almost 9 years. Sometimes it's so weird to think about that... It's gone by so fast and I can't imagine what my life would be like without Grant in it. I can't remember what I used to do before I knew him.

#6 I hate scary movies. Especially when they are the jumpy kind of scary. I hate the suspense of it all. And I hate really bloody movies. I'm so sensitive about stuff like that, ever since I was little. When we were little me and Whitney, my sis, would always cry at the beginning of Willow when the little old lady gets attacked by those dogs :( And when I watch scary movies with Grant I hide under a blanket the whole time or plug my ears!

#7 I love to color and I love water colors. I can't wait until Drake is old enough to color so that I can have an excuse to color with him!

That didn't take as long as I thought but it still took a while trying to think inbetween feeding and playing w/ Drake. I'll tag Miss Hayley Boyd. And my other three blogging friends already got tagged :) That was fun, thanks Kin.

Grant's Project

Ok so Grant made a scrapbook page. Which means he scrapbooks more than I do! I ALWAYS say that I will start but when I have spare time there are so many other things I need/want to do. But anyway Grant made this page and we emailed it to Drake's "girlfriend," Brooklyn. Our friends that live in St. George have a daughter and she is a doll. So we joke that she is Drake's GF.

Brave Little Guy!

Drake had his six month check up this last week and had to get his dreaded shots! I hate those days. It really does break my heart. I made Grant go with me the last two times to hold him. It is so sad!! And it gets worse the older he gets because it takes longer to calm him down :( And as if he weren't having a hard enough time I spy two little teeth poking out on the bottom! Can't believe how big he is getting!

Feeling pretty good after some tylenol and a nap

Happy Valentines!

I love Valentines Day, I always have. It is such a fun, romantic day. Grant is working the night shift at his job so Drake will be my Valentines date. I was looking at some old pics of Grant and I together and thought I'd post a few. And there are a few with the other guy in my life, Drakey.

This was one of the happiest days of my life. I was so nervous walking down the aisle thinking I would trip or something but once I got up there with Grant I felt so calm and happy

These are some pics from our honeymoon. Grant took me to Disneyland and it was so fun. I'll never forget it

*smoochy *kissy* lovey-dovey* my love* my life* xoxo*

Kissy Kissy Kissy

Drake Washington

Ok, I am the most annoying mom in the world... If Drake could talk I'm sure he would tell me to stop taking pictures of him with things on his head. But he looks so cute I just had to post it!

I Got Tagged!

A. The rules are posted at the beginning.
B. Each person answers the questions about themselves
C. At the end of the post, the person then tags people and posts their names; then goes to there blog and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged.
10 years ago:
Hm, ok so 15 years old... no driver's license yet, but I was dying to get one! I would have been in 9th grade at Oquirrh Hills Middle (I hated the name of our school) I was a student body officer. And no cares in the world. And I also started high school at Bingham High, and I hated it. I felt like such a loser. I was so shy and didn't know many people... That seems like an eternity ago! I feel old :(
5 Things on my to do list:
(1) Get dressed, Ha! and dress Drake (we both stay in pjs til like 2 pm)
(2) Laundry, ugh, my enemy
(3) Random house chores :(
(4) Think of something to make for dinner and make it
(5) And work on my blog, I've been neglecting it!
Things I would do if I were suddenly made a billionaire:
Hm lets see, I would move us into a bigger, nicer house (with a pool). And maybe have another vacation house somewhere. Get some sexy car for me and one for Grant. And a family car, too. I'm sure I would go on a massive shopping spree and spoil Drake w/ clothes and a bunch of toys. Then I'm sure Grant would have some requests like a motorcycle, a boat... and more guy toys. And it would be fun to buy my parents a new house and give some money to my brothers and sisters. And after that and a few fun vacations I'm sure Grant would want to invest the rest, which I know nothing about!
Jobs I have had:
Ok, it all started with a paper route when I was 12 or 13. I hated waking up early and I HATED the Sunday paper.. so heavy! Then I worked at a Sno Shack making sno cones (and I would eat snow cones all day, sooo good) Dominos Pizza with my ugly uniform, Arctic Circle with an even uglier uniform, Peerless Beauty Supply, some telemarketing company, Wrenchead Inc, they sold computer programs to car repair shops and that was my first legit job. It was a full time job w/ a salary and I got a lunch. Then Bluecross/Blueshield was my last job before I had Drake and I really miss friends that I made there. And now I try to do esthetics out of our house. Facials and waxing here and there. Hopefully someday I can make a real home business out of it and make it really nice. I really enjoy doing it!
3 of my bad habits:
Biting my nails...but I used to pick my face so I'm not too hard on myself for biting my nails. Worrying is another bad habit... I sometimes worry until I just stress myself out and I think into things too much. I'm really trying to let things roll off my back like Grant. And also snacking. I don't know why I am always snacking on something...
Things people don't know about me:
Okay that I have never been on an airplane. But that is going to change this May when I fly to Florida to visit my sis. That I am pretty good at Guitar Hero (I try to keep that tid bit on the DL) I don't practice as much now though cuz of the little man. And I love to eat peanut butter and honey:)
--Okay, everyone I know that has a blog has already been tagged :( So maybe I will have to start up another kind of tag :)

Bouncing Baby

Drake got this jumper for Christmas. And at first his feet could barely reach the floor and he wasn't sure what he was supposed to do in there. But he learned how to jump and how to turn all the way around in his seat to play with all the different toys and he loves it. It cracks me up to watch him! It is too funny!

Eww I didn't realize how annoying I am when I record Drake!

Happy Birthday Papa!

Happy Birthday pacha! Sorry you are sick on your big day and on the superbowl :( Poor little papa! I love you so much. We will have a big bash when you are feeling better!

Snuggle Bug

My grandma gave Drake this snuggly blue blanket and he loves it. I lay him down in his crib and sometimes he will be fussy. Then I hand him his blanket and he pulls it over his little face and falls right to sleep. It is so precious. My grandma lives out of town and I always miss her, so I love putting him to sleep with a little piece of her.
