Not dealing well with the time change. Barely got Bria off to school on time this morning (mostly because she was impossible to get out of bed), it's 9:30 and Sophie has been awake for about 20 minutes but Chloe is still sleeping (big surprise there). I feel like I just want to go to back to bed for a really long time. I suppose I actually could, since it's Monday and I have absolutely no commitments today except grocery shopping. But, I am going to do this kind of fun meme instead....
My roommates and I once....thought it would be a great idea to dress up as barcodes for the ward Halloween party at the bowling alley. The apartments with the most creative theme costumes would win prizes. Needless to say, nobody thought it was as great an idea as we did, and we didn't win anything, but it was a lot of fun. We all wore black and white and painted our faces white with black stripes and random numbers. Totally crazy.
Never in my life have I....been on a cruise. This is something I think I would really like to do, but Joel thinks it sounds stupid. I would love to do a European cruise, then I think Joel would like it too.
High School was...a learning experience. Depending on what you ask about it was good, bad and ugly all rolled into one. Definitely a major part of who I am today, but not something I ever want to have to repeat.
When I'm nervous...I start talking 300 miles a minute. I used to get all shaky, but that rarely happens anymore. I'm not sure if it's because I have overcome a lot of my fears or if I just outgrew that particular reaction.
My hair is...very dark brown. Some people even describe it as black, but it's really not even close to black. I have some red highlights (natural...I don't ever color it) in there too.
When I was 5...I went to kindergarten in the afternoon and my Montessori preschool in the morning.
When I turn to my left...I can see my kitchen, which is quite clean right now, by the way.
I should be...getting my coupons all in order for the grocery shopping trip today. I'll get to it soon. After all, Chloe is still asleep.
By this time next year...I really hope that we will be living somewhere completely different and that Joel will have a University job. We're still working on that, though.
My favorite Aunt is...Aunt Teri.
I have a hard time understanding...math.
You know I like you if...I'm nice to you? Except I try to be nice to everyone, but really there's not many people I don't like. I guess if I don't seem to be avoiding you, I like you!
My ideal breakfast is...a Yoplait yogurt and a couple eggs.
If you visit my home town...you won't believe how much it's grown since I graduated from high school. Sometimes it still takes me by surprise when I am visiting. But, I visit often enough that I'm pretty used to it.
If you spend the night at my house...we'll probably stay up pretty late chatting.
My favorite blonde is...My mom.
My favorite brunette is...Bonnie.
I shouldn't have been...reading last night until after midnight. But, in my defense, I wasn't tired yet. (insert another daylight savings rant.)
Last night I...went to a Young Women Stake Leadership Training meeting.
A better name for me would be...I don't know that there is one. Sometimes I've had people tell me they think I look more like a Kim than a Lara, which is odd, since Kimberlee is actually my middle name, and these people usually don't know that. But I think Lara suits me well.
I've been told I look like...Alyssa Milano when Who's the Boss was popular. Terri Hatcher when she was in Lois and Clark. We had the exact same hair cut and I was stopped in the streets/store whatever quite often for people to tell me I looked just like her. Since Desperate Housewives came on, I've had one or two people mention it, but since I've gained a lot of weight and she's tiny as ever, I think the resemblance is pretty much over.
If I could have any car it would be...well, I rather like my Honda Odyssey. I think it's perfect for me. But maybe someday I can drive a Solara. And I will have vanity plates that say Sojoel.
