Wee Bit of Me Wednesday!

You know I love this little feature...........
because who doesn't love to talk about themselves????

Pop on over to Leigh Ashley's and join in!

{one} what is your dream job?
If I could wake up one day and magically have all the training and experience necessary,
I would be A CORONER!
Wouldn't that be cool?
{two} how many best friends do you have?
How many?
If you are my friend, you are my best friend!

My bestest best friend is Brian.
We were 17 in this picture!

{three} what’s the longest road trip you’ve ever taken?

When I was a teenager, we used to drive from Colorado to Newport Beach every summer with some family friends.  What made it LONG was that the parents drove in front of us in the air conditioned car, while the kids rode in the UNAIRCONDITIONED wood panelled station wagon.  Ahhh......memories of the windows down and the hot air of the Nevada desert hitting us.  What fun!

Brian and I also made that same drive one New Year's Eve when I was 6 1/2 months pregnant with Trammell.  We stopped in every town from St. George to 90 minutes from home and there was NO room in the inn.  There were no rooms ANYWHERE.  We drove the whole way.  THAT was long!
{four} if you had to do one single thing every day for the next year, what would it be?
Eat, Read, Pray.
{five} what’s one story your family always tells about you?
Hmmm.......I don't know.  I think they tell it when I'm not around! ;)
But I bet it has something to do with me being bossy!
I'm not nearly as fun to talk about as my brothers.  I didn't do ANYTHING wrong when I was growing up.
{six} how did your parents pick your name?

There's not a huge story behind it.  I think they got the idea from Gina Lollobrigida.    

 We could be TWINS!

{seven} what’s the one thing that scares you more than anything?

I don't know.  I'm not really afraid of much.  I do worry though.  I could list 80 things I worry about...on occasion...not obsessively.  One of the most frequent worries might be - that my kids are making good decisions and that they are happy.  Don't read that that I am worried about there good decisions and  that they are happy.  Read that that I want them to make good decisions and be happy.
{eight} are you a good cook?
Yes, except when I hurry through something and then things are undercooked or overcooked.  I should be more patient.
{nine} where do you see yourself in 20 years?
Going on missions with Brian and hanging out with my boys, their beautiful wives and my darling grandchildren!!!!
{ten} what’s your best childhood memory?
Playing with my brothers.  My brothers are the BEST brothers in the whole world!

And, now, that made me cry!!!!

It's time to get going on packing a brithday package to send to Garrett in Romania, helping Parker get all of HIS pioneer trek stuff together, working on pioneer trek stuff, buying some paper and bottled water for Brian's office and finishing up some ironing!  Yippee!

Longest trip? MA to FL in the back of my dad's truck with make shift seats and seatbelts. Mom used to put Keebler cookies on the dash, wait til the heater melted the chocolate chips, and then hand them back through the little window. :)

We made the trip four times.

I actually had no name for four days. They refused to let me leave the hospital until I had one. My Mother wanted Meghan. My dad won. :)
