10. Bribes
11. An awesome new closet courtesy of my aforementioned handy husband
12. Order

Closet Before (The Chief's shelf and all his clothes came crashing down in the middle of the night a few weeks ago - scared us to death!)


Closet After (The Chief created this heavenly order today. I love him!)

You forgot something that is very important. I will add it here as number 13. Funny that you left off at 12 since I would have numbered this one 13 even if you had only done 10. "Why" you ask? Because that is the number of BYU's consecutive wins after we crushed UCLA 59-0. So here it is:

13. Singing the Cougar fight song eight times with Soren and Dan (Anders was napping most of the game).

Go Cougars!

Wow. I just might show this entry to my Jas to see if he gets inspired to tinker with our mess of a closet.

I love "Lisa" time too...ALL moms need it I think.
handy husbands: What would we do without them? When I lived alone I would call the home teachers to screw in a light bulb that was too high for me to get to. lol.
Creativity...I agree.
Little arms squeezing me tight in a bear hug...SERIOUSLY, this is a good one. Hugs in my family are a big hit.
Nighttime...when the kids go to sleep I get to play a little. Hooray for nightime!
Mint chocolate chip...I prefer oatmeal chocolate chip, but hooray for chocolate.
Bribes...don't always work on my daughter...Dangit!
An awesome new closet courtesy of my aforementioned handy husband....That's so funny, Scott fixed our closet door that fell down recently. Must be a closet fairy out there lol.
Order....me too. Too bad my living room is out of it right now lol.
