Tag, More About Me!

I could care less that I have a dbl. chin in this picture. This is my niece, Claire. I want one just like her, wonder if I can pre order one now. (read the rest of the blog to find out why I chose this picture)

Post these rules on your blog. List: 3 joys, 3 fears, 3 goals, 3 regrets, 3 current obsessions/collections, 3 facts about yourself.
Tag 3 people at the end of your post by leaving their names. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog!

I've been tagged by Jacque, thanks!

JOYS...
1. When Jaren comes home, especially when he comes home early (like 6 or 7)

2. Just completing my star(idea from amy) I didn't think I could make pretty, and I think it's pretty.

3. Having a home. I love being here and any break I get in school where there is enough time to run home in between classes (because I live 20 min out of town) I will.

FEARS...
1. Something bad happening to Jaren. If I watch a scary movie (or am just in a sad mood) where a husband was taken or something, I'll cry and cry and then Jaren comes home to find me in pieces and I tell him, very sternly, "Don't die. You are NOT allowed to die until I die."

2. Any of my family getting into severe car accidents and leaving this world before I say so(cause I'm boss).

3. Someone breaking into our home when Jaren isn't home. I live in the boonies, and who is going to hear me scream? Jaren thinks I'm crazy... but I don't.

GOALS...
1. To start exercising regularly again and try a diet (why not?)

2. To do well in School and not let myself get overly stressed out (because I do that a lot).

3. To have a baby sometime next year, preferably before December. Brrr, it is SO cold here.

REGRETS...
1. Not taking more credits when I was single so I could be done with school by now and wouldn't have to wait to get pregnant (I'm super baby hungry, can you tell?)

2. That I stopped running when I moved back to Rexburg from Utah.. it's never been the same since.

3. That I went to that dentist that took my one cavity and found 9. Maybe someday I'll tell that horrific story.

OBSESSIONS...
1. Blogging. It's a disease. (I can't get enough!)

2. Babies and pregnant women. Really... I envy them. Some of you may roll your eyes, but I want to be a mommy really bad and I know that I have to wait just a bit longer till it's the best time for both Jaren and I. But that wont stop me from wanting(and crying daily over how badly I want to be done with school and be a mom. It's true... now everyone knows me a little better).

3. Clothes. I look and look online all the time. I'm saving for my trip to Utah in a few weeks where I can buy a few much wanted things. Oh and shoes, I'm very very obsessed with those as well.

Facts about me...
1. I love to cook and bake. I just wont do it unless I have time (and there's not a lot of that with school) and unless Jaren comes home before 7(which doesn't happen until after about mid October).

2. I am a people person. I love to be around people, I love to meet new people. I want some friends that are close that don't mind that I live out here in the sand that like to hang out. Since I've lived out here I have felt quite lonely for friends. It' s something Jaren tries to understand because he grew up here, he has his friends he likes to hang out with. I lost all of mine throughout the years and moving out here. So... if your from Rexburg (and will be here forever, I'd like to make forever friends, here)(and almost basically friendless like me) and want to do something, please let me know.

3. I eat brownie batter. I love it(better than actual brownies). It happens about once every 3 months around the time I start my new 28 day cycle. It's just so good. I'll make it, and just sit with the bowl on the couch in front of the TV and eat and eat. Then when it's gross and makes me feel sick I cook it and eat the brownie's the next day. In fact, all day today I have been wanting brownie batter rather badly. Last time I did this was.... probably April or May and I couldn't find any brownie mix!! I about had a conniption until I realized I had a jar with all the dry brownie ingredients all pretty in waves sitting on my counter. Thank you Vicki for taking me to your Relief Society enrichment dealy where we made these. Because in about an hour I'm going to make it and add my own chocolate chips and eat it. Oh, after I borrow the egg (because it needs 3 and I only have 2) from my MIL down the road.

I tag:
1. MARY! (Because I know she LIKES it!)
2. Jillene (Because I'd like to know more about her and I think she's the only other blogarific BFF that doesn't mind being tagged... or am I wrong?)
3. Chelsi (my BFF from high school)

P.S. I got my hair cut yesterday and I let her try more higher layers because for those of you who don't know, I recently recieved a DRAMATIC hair cut and Ive been getting used to it. Trying to decide if I want to grow it out again or keep it short. Well.... I hate this. I'm going to have them cut another inch off because I think I look like a wet dog. Then I think I might have decided to grow it long again.

P.S. Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post. I know it was a touchy subject for some, but I value everyone's opinion and I hope to post some more blogs that will bring some pretty good discussion later

Whit you can never look like a wet dog, more a kitty cat. :) And I had a lot of the same fears as you do when I was younger, lots of nightmares about what if this happened, or what if that happened, and none of them ever did, so your safe. :)

Kristina P. said...

Your number one fear is my number one fear. No P.S. I Love You, for me! I actually developed enough of an anxiety about it with his previous job (armored truck driver), that I saw a therapist for a few months. Fun!

Oh, and I'm addicted to clothes and shopping too. I should not have been looking online at Banana Repiblic today.

I will probably get to the Olive Garden at 12:15.

Denise said...

It sounds like you are going to be a good mommy.

Jillene said...

I love that you tagged me! However--I have already done his tag so you can check out my answers at: jillenecox.blogspot.com/2008/07/tagged-by-tina.html

You can tag me anytime! (0:

Rychelle said...

i love batter too. brownie, cake, cookie. yum!

ramsam said...

Awesome post- so much information. It makes me sad that you are lonely in Rexburg ;-(

It makes me happy that you love batter..... the best perk to being a grown up, I believe, is licking every bowl of cake and brownie batter. Love it!@

Brittany said...

So did I read you're from Spokane or near it? My aunt, uncle and cousins live in Coeur d' Alene. (And my parents have 5 acres in Athol.) I've been to Spokane a lot. I need to go to that temple though. I've only been to one "mini" temple and that was the Winter Quarters Temple. It was pretty cool.

*MARY* said...

Wow your hair was long. Mine used to be super long too, then my senior year of high school I chopped it all off and it hasn't been long since.
thanks for the tag, I'll get to it soon.

Rowboat said...

fun getting to know you a little better! and you are so beautiful! i had no idea because i hadn't seen that many pictures of you, but i checked out your post about you getting your hair cut, and was amazed at how pretty you are. knock that off right now!!

Whitney said...

Mom - thanks for the cat comment. haha.

Kristina - Sometimes I think I may need counseling for how much I work myself up.

Denise - thank you! I can't wait... but I have to :(

Jillene - Whoopsey!

Rychelle - Homemade batter is NOT as good as the stuff you get out of the a package. Bleh, never again.....

Ramona - Don't be sad, if we lived close, we would be hang out friends, I'm sure. :)

Brittany - I grew up bout 2 hours south in a teeny town called Othello :) There is a mini temple in Tri Cities which is just 45 minutes from Othello that we go to. I've never been through a session there, but I've done baptisms. It's just little :)

Mary - do you ever miss it?

Ariana - Thank you! You've been boosting my self esteem all over the place. I read your comment on my Ethics post and it made me feel confident in a post I wasn't sure about posting. And then this. I love blogging friends. :)Really, thank you because with short hair, I really don't feel very pretty... which is why I think I'm going to grow it back out.

Victoria Elder said...

What? Growing the do' back out? i think it looks way good! Your fear is my fear too! its just such a scary thought!
So you did one of those stars? post a pic for me to see i wanna get motivated to do my own project

Wendy said...

OK, my fears too, I worry so much about my husband too -- and I freak when my I am sleeping alone at nights also, my husband also is like whatever!!! I am sorry you are baby hungry, I have been there, done that! 4 miscarriages, long long story, but now I have two beautiful children who are a handful and those days are forgotten! started up my diet today, fun fun! so my other blog should start having some diet info on it!

Alexis and Casey Treese said...

I am a people person too, I always want friends and family around. And I have the same fears about Casey. I'd like to die at the same moment as him, perhaps in a plane crash. I think I'll post this tag sometime a week. And most importantly, You are going ot be a fabulous mom. I can see how much love and reverence you have for motherhood, I really admire it.

whitney said...

Hey I just Noticed you left me a comment! So how is your new calling going in YW? we will have to swap ideas

Wendyburd1 said...

1)Tell Jaren the boonies are the number one place people die in horror movies!!
2)I also tell my family they are not allowed to die. After losing all 4 grandparents i can't handle death well at all, so I'd prefer that let allow me to go first, then they can all kick the bucket when they so choose.
3)I wish I was a people person, Im so shy that it's the friends I've had forever that are still my closest friends, and I think the last one is about to move away...so for a decent sized town here in CT, I am pretty lonely. It's why I am hoping to find some really good friends on here.And if they're Mormon, even better, I just feel I can trust more, you know?
4)Doesn't brownie batter have raw eggs and oil? *shudders*
