Well, as lame as it sounds it is true, this is my very first tag. So here I go!

6 Things Tag
1. Post the rules on your blog.
2. List 6 random things about yourself.
3. Tag 6 people at the end of your post.
4. Let each person know the have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. I am quite a clean freak, I think I get that from my Dad! Clutter bugs the crap out of me. I am totally OK with throwing thing out, or sending things to D.I. if I know I will never use it again. Of course, my husband is the total opposite. He still has T-shirts from high school, and little nick-knacks here and there that he just can't seem to part with. And claims that he might one day need it, yeah right! So, sometime when I happen to be cleaning things out and I find something of his that I think needs to go... I retire it for him!!!

2. I got my first cavity when I was 22 years old. Of course, I wish I could say I've never had a cavity, but I think it's pretty unique to go 22 years without a single cavity.

3. According to my family, I am a BIG stresser! Which I am... I can stress over the smallest things, and I know for sure I get that from my Dad too! My Mom tells me all the time. One day, I'll be able to prefect the art of optimism, and live a stress free life... one day.

4. I am a very big family person. I have to most fun when I'm just hanging out with my family or my family-in-laws. We have the best families ever! And I enjoy all the fun time we spend together. My family, and Kyle's family are literally our best friends. I have to say that I am very blessed!

5. A funny story, when I was in High School I played basketball for our school team. And in an attempted to save the ball from going out of bounds, I ran straight into the wall totally missing the padding. I blacked out, but I was fine, I just walk away with a nearly broken wrist.

6. One day if not in this life, for sure in the life to come when we are perfected, I am going to be a professional photographer, a baker/chef, a knitter, a quilter, a creative scrapbooker, a
hairdresser, a make-up artist, and a guitarist. My list can go on, but this is just a few things I want to be when I grow up!

I Tag Sherrelle, Heather, Laura, Erin, Krista and Vania... Get on it girls!!!!

This past Saturday we went up to Hiko, Nevada. If you don't know where Hiko is, it is just outside of Alamo, Nevada, and if you don't know where Alamo is... get a map! I had no clue until the first time we went. Anyways, we went to visit with our family and eat some delicious dutch oven chicken and potatoes. Kyle's parents are building a house up there and spend every weekend working on their beautiful home, and land. Kyle's oldest brother Mathias and his family, Christy, Hunter, and Haylee came down from Pioche, and it was so good so see and visit with them as we don't get to see them very often. Also the newlyweds, Chelsee and Billy made it up as well. Unfortunately, not all the family was able to be there, we definitely missed Sherrelle, RJ, and Colton, as well as Nathaniel and the boys, Noah and Weston. But we still managed and had fun. We rode around on Mathias' 4-wheeler, ate some good grub, visited and talked story, and finished with the kids having a bath in Grandma, and Grandpa's jet tub. It was so nice to get away from the city for a few hours, and enjoys some fresh air. Thanks Mom and Dad for a delicious dinner and a good time. We really enjoyed ourselves! Here are some pictures of our little trip...

Símone's first ride on a 4-wheeler. She had so much fun, and loved it!

Pretty picture of the sunset, with Billy and Hunter.
