Honest Scrap Tag

I have been tagged with the Honest Scrap from MarjAnn. Rules are: post 10 honest things about yourself. 2. Pass along to 7 bloggers... 3. Have fun. Well I don't think I even have 7 bloggers to pass this on to, so if you are reading this, consider yourself tagged.

1.Honestly, my husband is my best friend. I'm so grateful to have such a wonderful husband who takes amazing care of his family. He is the hardest working person ever and fulfills all of his roles so well. He is a great example to me. Thanks hun, I love you.

2. Honestly, I love my children with all my heart. They are wonderful children and they teach me so much. How perfect Heavenly Father's plan is to include being a mother and wife and raising children. What else could you love so completely and strive so hard to be better for? I love to hear the funny things they say and watch the funny things they do. And to hear randomly from your 3 year-old, "Mom, you're great" just fills me with joy!

3.Honestly, I love to exercise. Sounds crazy, but I really do love to exercise. It helps me be better in every aspect in my life. I even love to involve my kids. It's pretty funny to have Madelyn doing aerobics with me or catch Drew pretending to be a ballerina!!

4.Honestly, I do not like to spend money on myself. If I have to buy Jed, or the kids clothes...fine. But to buy them for myself? Much harder. Some of my shirts are starting to look like limp lettuce, so I decided I wanted cash for Christmas to buy some new clothes. I still haven't spent it! I keep thinking I should buy something else with it. Confession: I actually do like to buy exercisy things though.

5.Honestly, I could eat a whole tub of ice fact I have. Not recently, but I probably still could! That's probably why you all are thinking...."Jeannette likes to exercise?!" Yes, then I botch it all up when I succumb to the whisperings from the freezer!

6.Honestly, Kung Fu Panda is probably one of my favorite shows. I am a kid at heart.

7.Honestly, I enjoy learning how to be more domestic. I love learning about food storage, how to cook new foods, learning you can make your own laundry detergent..that intrigues me. I want to learn how.

8.Honestly, the food I am craving most lately is Bajio or Cafe Rio. To me they are the same. I just got the recipe for their meat and special ranch. I can't wait to make it!! By the way, I'm not expecting.

9.Honestly, I love to read. I haven't found much time as of late to do it, but I love it. Mostly I read self-help books because if you know me, I need a lot of help!!

10.Honestly, the gospel is the most important thing of all. I'm so grateful for the Plan of Salvation. Life is so unpredictable. I love the prophets counsel to live for today. You never know what tomorrow will bring. I'm so grateful for the joy that the gospel brings--no matter what hardships you suffer the gospel still brings joy. It truly is the Good News!!


  1. I had fun doing the honest scrap thing because it gave me time to think about my life. HOpe you enjoyed it too! Have you been to Hanna's blog?

  2. Yay! Thanks for posting a comment on my blog so I could find you! That was fun to read. #3 and #5 is totally me also. I work out like crazy every day, but when I'm not working out I'm pigging out! I can't wait to see pictures of your haircut!

  3. I was so excited to see the post on my blog! I have been thinking about you lately. I was wondering how I could get a hold of you. Anyway, I will definately be checking your blog often!!!!
