Liebster Award

I have officially been tagged for the first time in my blogging career! I've always been so jealous when I've seen other people get tagged, and now I'm one of those lucky fellers! The Liebster Award is a recognition that is passed on from one small blogger to another as a way of supporting each other. Leibster means "dearest" in German. Here goes... 

{Nominate 3 of your favorite blogs}

(1) Heather: My mommy. She's very, very, very sick right now. So I don't expect her to follow through for at least a few days. 

(2) Becky: My mother-in-law. I've been told that we're basically the same person (a very nice compliment for me). She also hasn't done a blog post in 6 months, but I KNOW she reads this blog and will see this. Have fun (finally) doing a blog post Becky :)

(3) Tarin: My sister-in-law. She's recently made her blog public again! Hooray!

*Narrowing this down to 3 blogs was hard. I have so many blogs that I love to follow!

{Tell 5 of your likes and 5 of your dislikes}

{Likes}

(1) Richie and everything about him
(2) Watching Claire learn new things every day. And listening to her giggle. It's the sweetest sound ever.
(3) Arrested Development
(4) World Class Chocolate malts from Baskin Robbins
(5) Running

{Dislikes}

(1) Incompetent drivers
(2) Tomatoes, mushrooms, asparagus and olives
(3) Would it be weird to put running on my "likes" and my "dislikes"?? Because it's true. It all depends on how in-shape I am.
(4) Ummmm......
(5) Trying to come up with things that I dislike

{If you were a color, what would you be and why?}

I would be blue. It's my favorite color! Plus, it's the color of my alma mater, Utah State.

{What's your dream vacation?}

There are SO many places that I'd love to go. Richie has always wanted to go to England, so I think it'd be fun to travel there together. I would go pretty much anywhere in Europe.

{What do you do to relax?}

We'll normally watch TV once Claire goes to sleep. We'll also blog, check facebook, or play Canasta.

{Do you have a coping mechanism for stress? What is it?}

I take really hot showers when I'm stressed out. The first few weeks after Claire was born, I could listen to her cry for hours as long as I had had a hot shower that day.  

{If you had a free day to yourself, what would you do?}

I would first sleep in (duh!). I'd probably go for a run with Richie and Claire and then get ready for the day. After that? Who knows. I like how my days are right now. I'd probably finish one of my sewing projects or the ottoman that I'm currently making. I'd definitely go on a picnic for lunch and have a Baskin Robbins shake for dinner.

Heather, Becky and Tarin: Answer all the same questions and then tag 3 of your favorite blogs! Ready...set...GO!

Easter

Easter was so fun this year! We celebrated with my family on Saturday and did an Easter egg hunt and a dinner at Ty and Amy's house. It was so fun to watch the little girls play at the park. On Sunday we went to church and then Tarin and Danny had us over for dinner with all of Richie's siblings. Richie's parents were out of town, so we partied it up without them. :)

I (of course) can't do a blog post without posting a few pictures of Claire. 

Please note the arm rolls.

I seriously need to sign her up for modeling somewhere. She's so adorable. 

Playing at the park!
Happy Easter everyone!
