I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking the kids to scout camp. I want there to be a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

Honest Scrap

So I got tagged to do this forever ago, and I am finally getting around to doing it.
List 10 honest things about yourself, then tag 4 people to do the same.

Here goes....

1. I love being a mom. Yes I murmer a lot about it, but when all is said and done, I absolutely love being a mom! I wouldn't want to do anything else!

2. My kids have got to be some of the funniest kids on the planet! They say the funniest things sometimes!

3. I totally hit the husband jackpot. I must have seriously done something awesome in the pre exsistence to have snagged this guy. Either that or the Lord just knew I needed major help and sent me the most awesome guy on the planet.

4. I have a love hate relationship with Cub Scouts. I really love working with the boys and having fun, but I hate how time consuming it can be. And sometimes the boys do drive me crazy. And their parents.

5. I hate the fact that I am getting old. I don't know why, but I do.

6. Even worse than that I hate the fact that my kids are getting older. I miss when they were all still little and I could fix everything with a hug and a kiss. Those dreaded teenage years are getting too close for comfort.

7. I have absolutely no desire to ever be famous. I love my boring life.

8. I watch way too much T.V. It is probably rotting my brain.

9. In my next life, i want to be a cake decorator. I love decorating cakes and coming up with fun ideas, I just wish I could be really good at executing them!

10. I wish I was a more confident person. I wish I didn't care what people think. I wish I didn't overanalyze everything and could just be me without worrying about it.

OK I tag
Kacie Erickson
Larissa Luke
Bobbie Larsen
Brittney Fenn
Vana Powell
(Yeah, that's 5, but I couldn't decide)


  1. I'm honored that you tagged me! (glad there's no time limit) I've really enjoyed getting to know you a little better through blogging!!!

  2. That is a great list. I think this was one of the hardest tags I have ever done. At least yours was positive. I totally understand the scouting thing. I bet you do a great job! The teenage thing is starting to get a little scary for me too.
