I’ve Been Tagged!

Four random things I like about my husband:
1. He laughs at me and makes me laugh.
2. He gets Mikey out of the tub, lotioned up, into pjs, reads scriptures, and puts Mikey to bed every night!
3. He is pretty passionate about food storage right now so we both enjoy grocery shopping =o)
4. He has such a strong testimony, vast knowledge of everything related to the gospel, and genuine love for others that I really learn things from him.  I learn church trivia type stuff, but more importantly I learn from his example and wise words about not being so critical of others, how I can best help others, and he teaches me a lesson or two quite often using his good ole’ parables =o)

Four jobs I’ve had:
1. Courtesy Clerk at Smith’s (loved my farmer’s tan from pushing carts in the Vegas heat!)
