Heather is third lady on left right next to me.
This week's guest host is Heather from Adventures of my Life.  I actually met Heather last year at a blogging dinner at Marie Callender's.  She was so sweet and brought each of us a little goodie bag even!

I asked Heather 5 questions

1. How long have you been blogging?  I have been blogging since 2010. So about 4 years.

2. What is your blog about, what do you like about blogging?  My blog is about my life and what matters most to me. I like blogging because I have the ability to connect with people all over the world.

3. Describe yourself in 10 words or less. I am a Christian, Wife, Mother, and  Educator.

4. What is your dream vacation.  My dream vacation is a trip to a tropical location.

5.  What is a favorite movie you have seen recently?  My favorite movie that I have seen recently is Frozen. It is such a cute movie.

5 Things

1. A couple nights ago, Ryder was just done.  He lay on the floor crying, saying he was too tired to help clean (though a minute before he had been running around).  I suggested he just go to bed, but this set him off more as after we cleaned we were going to have Family Home Evening and he did not want to miss that.

So he said he would try, he then stood up and immediately "collapsed" saying he couldn't move as his 'leg was broken'.

I sighed and asked him "Did you learn this from your sister?"
To which he replied while still "crying": "YES!"

2.  Ryder was helping me carry in groceries, our car was parked in the shade (we have too much stuff in our garage to park in it), and he kept carrying the groceries away from the house into the sunlight, then would turn around and bring them inside.    When I asked why he was doing this, he very seriously said "I am making the groceries lighter by taking them into the light."

3. I have been a slacker about working out lately, but two nights ago when I realized I now weigh more than I ever have (other than being pregnant) I knew it was time to get back to it. I decided to do Jillian Michael's 6 week to 6 pack workout, as all of my extra weight is in my midsection.  I was dripping sweat by the time I was done and felt sick, I ended up laying down on the floor and ended up falling asleep.  Day two is today, wish me luck.

4. This weekend was a spiritual high weekend with so many amazing talks at LDS General Conference.  I will be sharing some of my thoughts and favorite quotes next week-- or just go read my twitter feed from the weekend and as I tweeted a lot.

5. I finished The Way of Kings!  So I should be around more... oh wait, I started the second book. Darn books that suck me in, I love and hate them.  Don't worry, I actually have a few posts already written for next week, so I will be around.

5 Pictures

They opened a new location close to me- and yes this might just be a new habit!
So this is Eric's picture that I stole- all of us watching conference on Sunday
Who eats an ice-cream sandwich like that?

What is your Friday 5?


  1. Your kids do some funny stuff! :)

  2. that is so precious--esp the groceries one. i giggled!

  3. So funny about the groceries! I love that picture. Those nights when they're jus done always drive me crazy because there's no way to fix it! Good luck with the Jillian Michaels workouts. I have a love/hate relationship with her 30 day shred.

    1. Yes, there really is very little you can do when they are done other than try and get them to bed in one piece.

  4. Replies
    1. It was, thankfully life has been pretty calm for the moment.

  5. Remember you can modify. My PT tells me not to hurt myself. (This is for my shoulder.) But I think this applies to all things physical. When we go from couch to crunch...well...I haven't started the shred yet. Not quite there. hahaha. Get some epsom salt and soak in it.

    1. Yep, I definitely have been modifying-- too much lately and probably not pushing myself as much as I should and did at first

  6. Ha! I've done that before! Fall on the floor after a workout and wake up with carpet designs all over my arms and legs! :) I desperately need to lose some weight, too. I have been layering on the pounds all winter. It's time to whip this body back into shape!

    1. Yes- I have been so bad about just snacking all day lately- it has got to stop. Glad I am not the only one who has crashed like that :)

  7. Sounds like after you did your workout you should done what Ryder did when it came to cleaning the house :) Hmmm... wonder what he'd have thought if he saw you do that... lol :)

    1. Lol I should have, that would have been funny. Though I totally have copied my kids at times to show them how ridiculous they are being, so maybe he wouldn’t have thought anything of it ;)

  8. Too funny about the groceries! Thanks for hosting!

  9. Fun with the kids is always a +! That burger looks DELISH!

    1. It was so good! We ended up going again this last weekend.
