Tagged again

TAG--YOU'RE IT!! I've been tagged by my friend Breanne, and I dont normally take the time to do this, but I'm sick in bed and Zaylie is sleeping so inbetween googling the upcoming election and checking blogs I decided to do it.

Two names you go by:
1. Shan

2. Shantay

Two things you are wearing right now:
1. pajama pants

2. pink t-shirt

Two of your favorite things to do:
1. play games or hang out with friends/family

2. go out to eat

Two things you want very badly at the moment:
1. go to IHOP

2. go on a freakin vacation which we will never do because Arch never wants to take the initiative plan anything or to "waste" the money on five days of frivilous spending...we never got to even go on a blasted honeymoon unless you call driving and hotel hopping across the unted states from idaho to D.C. a honeymoon--I mean isn't this life about experiences, how in the flame (i got that from Averi and LOVE it) are we supposed to experience what this world has to offer if we never leave the magnificent (sense the sarcasm there)state of idaho. Please excuse my rantings, as you can see this is a sensitive subject.

Favorite Pets:
1. none

2. none- they require work, which is pretty much like having another kid, and really who wants that. Just kidding, I love Zaylie and would welcome any other children we have some day but for serious, I would never EVER want a pet, plus they stink and shed and you have no idea what they are thinking so they could just attack whenever they wanted and you'd have no idea it was coming.

Two people who will fill this out
1. Cassie will in about two months only because she'll feel bad that no one I tagged will do it

2. Averi, I'm sure she hates these things as much as the next person but she's always there to come through for me.

Two things you did last night:
1. Went to mutual

2. Went to the cocoa bean with Cassie and Keri to get a cupcake...delicious.

Two things you ate today
1. vanilla wafers

2. It's 11:22 and I just went downstairs to try to find something else and there was nothing besides tortillas and rotted strawberries, so I'm back up in my bed starving.

Two people you last talked to:
1. Archie

2. Keri

Two things you're doing tomorrow:
1. Showing Bobbi how to make a brag book.

2. getting bids from contractors for our house

Two longest car rides:
1. Idaho Falls to Washington D.C

2. Colorado to either Florida or New York/Canada border its a pretty close tie

Two favorite holidays:
1. Christmas time (the whole month of december I love)

2. Fourth of July

Two favorite vacations:
1. Well I haven't really been on one and probably will never go on one, but if I had to choose I would say...San Fransisco when Cassie and Brennen got married

2. Destin Florida but mind you I was 14, so its long overdue

Two favorite drinks:
1. Koolaid

2. Mountain Dew

I tag, Cassie, Averi Kylie Bobbi and Amanda

Everyday I get people asking me how old I am which usually follows with, oh my I could have sworn you were 16 years old. I substitute teach at the middle schools and highschools and every time with out fail I get mistaken for a student...I'm being told to go to class, or a teacher will come in my classroom and ask where the teacher is, or the students will ask me out etc. A couple of weeks ago an APX Alarm salesman came to my door and asked me if my mom was home... I said no, but my husand is. Anyway needless to say, because I am constantly being told how young I look, I have always felt super young. Remember back when we were all kids and you'd say some new slang word like, oh lets say, "the bomb" or "for shizzle" and your parents would be like what the heck does that mean? I remember thinking I am never going to be like that, I'm going to be the coolest mom and will always listen to the hip music, and watch MTV, and dress cool, and know all the slang terms even when I'm 45. Well I'm only 23 years old and I've already let myself down.

Arch and I watched Juno last night, and anyone who knows me would know that I have "phrases" if you will like hold the phone, shut the front door, good freak, that flips my switch, I hear ya squawkin big chicken, I'm pickin up what your puttin down and they just go on and on(which really I owe most of my phrases to Averi, Zoolander and Nacho Libre) but this movie put me to shame. Half way through the movie I started thinking, good crap I don't understand half the stuff this girl is saying, I am TOTALLY moving towards the "what the heck does that mean" kind of mom. I think one of my favorites she said was "up the spout" meaning pregnant oh and "honest to blog" meaning are you serious? Anyway, this may be about the most random post I've ever posted, but its just been on my mind and I didn't have any pictures to update ya'll on so this is what you get.

Zaylie update

I've been getting hounded about not posting pictures of Zaylie by everyone I run into, so I decided to go overboard with the pictures so ya'll will leave me alone. I put them all in a slide show because there were just to many to put all on a the blog so i'm sorry you have to wait through the whole thing just to see the pictures...annoying I know but there was just no other way. Enjoy.
