Mendy passed this to me, so here goes!

What time did you get up this morning?
4:00 to feed Amelia...5:00 to get Lily out of her room when she started screaming and crying and trying to knock the door down...6:00 when I actually got in the shower to get ready to go to the temple at 7.

Diamonds or pearls?
I find I need both. In simple stud earrings. Fakes are fine with me. If anyone ever gets my name in a gift exchange, this is good information to know. I have a habit of losing pearl stud earrings, so I always need them.

What was the last film you saw at the cinema?

What is your favorite TV show?
Of all time? The Facts of Life, Gidget, and Little House on the Prairie. Current? Umm...let's just say I like HGTV and Food Network a lot. I also get hooked on Dancing With the Stars whenever it's on.

What do you usually have for breakfast?
Eggo Waffle

What food do you dislike?
Anything from the sea

What is your favorite CD at the moment?
This mix CD I made years ago when I was just beginning to date my husband. Hearing those songs brings so many memories.

What kind of car do you drive?
Dodge Grand Caravan as of December. I feel so fancy now in my mini-van.

Favorite Sandwich
Turkey and Avacado

Favorite item of clothing?
fitted jackets

If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go?
Europe with my husband

Favorite Brand of clothing
Prada. Just kidding. I just said that because this is such a funny question for normal people. Who really looks at brands that much?

Where would you retire to?
Somewhere with a big yard for gardening and a craft room...I want to have room to do the things I will hopefully have the time for then!

What is your most recent memorable birthday?
two years ago when my husband arranged a little surprise gathering for me with some close friends. I've never had a birthday surprise party before!

Favorite sport to watch

When is your birthday?
April 4

Are you a morning person or a night person?
I'm an eight in the morning, eight at night type of person. Earlier than that or later than eight is not optimal.

What is your shoe size?
5 and a half

No, because let's face it - cleaning up after living things is gross. I already have three kids three and under. Why oh why would I want a pet as well?

Any new and exciting news you'd like to share?
Tyler is probably going to India in May for a couple of weeks to train the people who are taking over his job. He is excited about the prospect of going there. I would take the kids and spend the two weeks at my parents if he goes, and that would be fun .

What did you want to be when you were little?

How are you today?
I started out really groggily, but I've perked up now...just in time for bed.

What is your favorite candy?
Red Vines, Cinnamon Bears, peanut M&Ms, Kit Kat bars...I could go on.

What is a day on the calendar you are looking forward to?
April 3rd - Tyler is taking me on a little weekend getaway that weekend for my birthday.

What are you listening to right now?
Tyler watching the nightly news.

What is the last thing you ate?
A Brownie

Do you wish on stars?

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
I'd like to be yellow. But I'd probably really be gray-blue or something.

How is the weather right now?
A little chilly.

Last person you spoke to on the phone.
A woman in ward saying her family couldn't come to our ward sponsored mini-dinner group tonight.

Sprite from a fountain with that small ice - like Sonic ice.

Summer or winter
Winter. I can't stand to be hot.

When was the last time you cried?
Today. I went to the temple after all. I saw couples waiting to be sealed...that always gets me.

What is under your bed?
Some picture frames and stray toys that have rolled under there.

What did you do last night?
I folded laundry and watched 20/20 about ethical dilemmas. I get sucked into those shows.

The list is too long to go into...I am an expert at imagining the worst case scenario for any given situation involving my loved ones.

Friday because I still have hopes that the weekend will be a nice change of pace...

For some reason the thought just pooped into my head the other day of what my personal boggart would be (and if you don't know what I'm talking about, read Harry Potter would ya' already?) A vivid picture came into my head of a killer whale (because of my marine life phobia) standing upright holding out a can of refrigerator biscuits (because of my opening the can by pressing a spoon on the seam phobia), followed by an infinite number of other killer whales holding cans of biscuits just like him (because of my fear of any living thing in large numbers. The word swarm used to describe a number of animals sends a chill up my spine). So, what would your boggart be?
