A Simple Request from Jenna

Jenna is one of my sweet laurels and I think she wanted to see just how dedicated I am to my YW. She was helping me out the other night and was telling me she was disappointed that I had not updated my blog in "10 whole days." She wanted me to post stuff about myself so I promised her if she sent me an email of questions I'd answer them and post them on my blog.

KellyAnne said...

Holy COW!!!
This is gonna take me forever to read... thanks for giving me something entertaining to do for a while!
Jenna is awesome. Don't know what we'd do without her in YW. Don't let her move on...! :)

Lemme said... do you get these cool backgrounds? i can only get the template ones!!

Higham Family said...

I LOVE the Twilight book! Katy Chambers just introduced me to it and it feels like "my brand of heroine". I have to wait for a library hold to get the second two-very exciting. Fun to read all the other stuff about you too.

genevieve said...

Wow, you should compile that in to a biography:) I love that quote too. Hopefully one of these days my kids will feel that way instead of all my house cleaning skills I owe to my nagging mother. (Can you tell it's Saturday and we are cleaning the house.)

Auburn & Dave said...

that is absolutely hilarious. what a great calling you have, and what a great job you did magnifying it ;o)! I feel like I know you WAY better now.

Emily said...

I bet it has been years since you have thought about yourself that much or even thought about yourself as a person. Your kids are going to love reading that when they are older. It would be cool to compare that survey to one done in 10 years from now and see the differences.
