10 years ago: I had fallen off a gymnastic bar at elementary school (dang richland elementary) and destroyed my arm. 3 breaks (1 was compound, aka.. "popped out of my flesh"), and my elbow was dislocated. I didn't attend almost 3 months of school. And, because of this incident I have been able to pay for college, a wedding and a sweeesweeet truck. What's next? :)

5 years ago: I was a 15 year old sophmore, I had finished my first friendship-boyfriend type relationship, and moved onto the big leagues.. Dated Joshua Martin Bramwell (big 17 year old) for a year after that. I enjoyed my teen years.

5 months ago: I was 1 month married. It was going fabulously.. and we celebrated by purchasing a member of our family. ..Birdie, Bird Turd, Turdling, Turd Ferguson. We love her, but I think maybe a $700 trip would have been just as good.

5 things on my to do list today:
1. Go to the bank
2. Pay our last utilities from not-so-"pleasant springs"
3. Visit sister who is fresh with fillings (the first in her life)
4. Possibly spend time with the in-laws
5. Watch the boob-tube

5 Snacks I enjoy:
1. Hostess doughnuts

5 things I would do if I were suddenly a billionaire:
1. Buy a house close to the beach, and close to ash & jermo :)
2. Buy a vacation house somewhere in Europe
3. Get a sweet car or three for my husband & I
4. Create many sweet orphanages all over
5. Stop working & have the babies

5 of my bad habits:
1. Being lazy
2. Watching too much tv
3. Not cooking dinners for my lovely husband
4. I chew & make gross noises, and I strongly dislike when others do the same. Rude of me.
5. Eating out too much

5 places I have lived:
1. Mira Mesa, CA
2. Escondido, CA
3. Provo, UT
4. Pleasant Grove, UT
5. and currently/temporarily Alpine, UT

2. Dry Cleaning Station, took dirty laundry from people, and gave them back clean clothes.
3. Jamba Juice, maker of divine smoothies & beverages
4. June Angel Day Spa & DeLeon Day Spa, giver of fabulous massages
5. Wifey

5 things people don't know about me:
1. I clogged for five years (where Ash & I met Chrissy!)
2. I'm a hip-hop & polynesian dancer (not currently practicing)
3. I eat like a crazy 6 year old, & married an alkalarian. (see "young father" for details)
4. I was a varsity cheerleader in high school and did pop warner cheer for years prior.
5. I'm scared of the dark.

Favorite...Favorite post, I mean. I laughed out loud because I could hear you saying these things. I like what you'd do if you were a billionaire.. Have the babies. :) Turns out you can do that being poor too..Just ask us!

Hi Arica, I'm so glad I found you and Ashley on here! Looks like you are loving married life...I'm so happy for you! So we have something in common, I too am totally addicted to the Stephanie Meyers Twilight books!!! I just finished the second one today and have the third one ready to start tomorrow! They are so good!

Janell is trying to start me on that set of books that you are obsessed with. I'm just worried that I will neglect my children if I become too into a book. Glad you found my blog.
