To finally feel well enough to catch up on blogging.
To be day dreaming about all the food that we'll have for Thanksgiving!
To have a love/hate relationship with the snow, it came super early and stuck this year!
To get caught up in life and forget about your blog once in a while.
To be ready for your sister to leave, (the one you've been hoping would come visit!).
To have 4 baskets of laundry ready to be folded and put away, for a week in your room!

This week's questions: Your husband as a father/future father:
1. What is/will be your husband's best trait as a father?
He is loving. For the longest time A would scream anytime he'd hold her, he couldn't comfort her at all. He kept trying and now that she is older, she'll let him comfort her. She'll sit by him on the couch and snuggle before bed. When he's working, she'll sit on his lap and watch movies on the computer.
2. What is/will be your husband's favorite thing to do with the kids?
Play guitar with A. She loves to sit on his lap, or right next to him and play the guitar.
3. How does/will your husband help out with the kids?
Anything before bedtime. He has the hardest time helping when it comes to bedtime. If he is in bed already, forget it.
You can be better than your parent's. My husband's dad isn't the best example of what to be when you grow up. In fact, he's the best example of what not to be. Lots of people I know don't think they can do better than their parent's but my husband knew he could. He also didn't feel the need to be like his friends, he's always been his own person, doing what is best for him.

Favorite Thanksgiving Memory
Growing up I lived in California, everyone in our extended family lived in Utah. For the 14 years we lived there 13 of them we packed our stuff the Thursday before and headed to Utah Friday after school. I didn't know my cousins or grandparent's, didn't feel comfortable with them, but it all changed when Thanksgiving came around, you felt like part of the family it was such an awesome feeling.
Favorite Thanksgiving Food
I just don't know! Everything just goes together so well! Last year and this year my family has added a ham to our meal (which I'm in charge of making). Love it!
What is a Thanksgiving Tradition you and your family have?
I'm sure most families do this, but we always play games and watch movies together.
Show us a favorite Thanksgiving picture(or 5) from years past
The first Thanksgiving we celebrated as a family of 3!
What are you most looking forward to about this Thanksgiving?
All the food, ha! Spending more time with my siblings that are here in Utah. We get together quite often but a lot of the time one of us is missing, so excited for us ALL to be there.

CHILDHOOD EXPECTATIONS OF MARRIAGE!
1. When you were a child what did you imagine YOUR Prince Charming to be like?
Loving, tough and attractive!
2. Does you husband match your prediction as a child?
3. What about when you were a teenager and knew it all about love, does you relationship match that scenario you had during those rebel years?
There was only one time that I let myself think I was in love, my second boyfriend. Boy was he a tricky one. A liar, rude, and the list could go on. After that, I wasn't sure what love was going to be like, I'd think about it all the time, but could never guess it'd be like it is now.
4. What love movie would you best match your relationship to? Why?
Honestly, I keep thinking about two movies, The Notebook and Runaway Bride. Strange choices right? The Notebook because, we've always been there fore each other, there isn't anyone else out there for me. Runaway Bride, because there have been so many relationships that just might go okay, but they weren't the right ones for us, and we finally found each other. We know each other's faults and weaknesses and we accept that.

What is currently on your wish list?
Comfy Pants. Seriously, I'm feeling super lazy.
A new bedding set for our room!
Loving the grey & yellow colors lately!
A new tv for our room!
Share a new iphone, droid, ipad app you have recently discovered that we all need
I'm pretty lame, so I don't know very many awesome apps, but I do love the Goodreads app!
What is a new Fall TV show you have added to your DVR?
We only have Netflix at our house! Hmmm, I can't even think of any shows that I watch at my mom's or that I make her DVR. What do you guys watch? I'm open to suggestions!
Share your Social Media links for us to follow you on(pinterest, twitter, facebook, etc) Tell us which is your favorite and why
I love Twitter! So easy to just tweet stuff like questions, and get responses quickly. For me, Twitter has WAY LESS drama then Facebook.
What is a TV series or Movie or Song you could listen to or watch over and over and over and never get tired of…feel free to name one of each
We actually just watched My Name is Earl, over again. Loved it the first time & still love it!
But Friends, Will & Grace, Roseanne are some of my favorites too!
I love The Notebook, The Time Traveler's Wife & The Other Guys for movies!
Hmmm.. Songs? I don't know. I'll get back to you!

A while back I posted a list of some of the shows I've watched on Netflix
. If only I could find that blog post now! Anyway, I'm pretty sure my husband & I are addicted to Netflix. We seriously watch so many shows! Now that my sister is living here with us we watch even more! Here are some of the shows we've been watching lately or are currently watching.
Pretty Little Liars
Grey's Anatomy (Season 8)
Desperate Housewives (Season 8)
Rules of Engagement
Private Practice (Season 5)
Oh and the list can go on and on! Pretty much when I get home I clean up make dinner, clean up, then it's time for me to sit back and relax while watching my shows! What shows on Netflix do you guys love? What am I missing out on?! I really really wish I could find my list from before, we've watched tons more shows than this!
Hope you're all doing well!!!

We did it, we took a toddler to a basketball game. Crazy right?
Well it all worked out because the company my dad works for, has a suite.
Perfect for a toddler.
We actually had two toddlers there, Stinky came along with us.
So glad A got a chance to experience this!
