showing affection, being romantic and making others feel special!
being outdoors with my kids...jumping with them on the tramp at night, bringing books and blankets out to the tramp with flashlights for some night reading...telling "ghost" stories which are pretty cheesy since my girls want princesses in them and want a happy ending!
traveling-by plane, roadtrip...whatever!
working in my yard...I love digging in the dirt and making my yard beautiful. Since my divorce I have learned to use an edger, weed eater, change a spark plug in the lawn mower and change a lawn mower blade! Learning some pretty cool things...though I'd love for a guy to do them! :p
design, photography, computers, typography and being creative!
planning my kid's bd parties and letting them chose everything they want to make it the perfect day! Planning any party!
decorating and making my home a place where people love to come...esp. my kid's friends and my family!
research and reading and furthering my education! I'm researching options for law school when my kids are in school full time! When my kids get into school I want to provide well for them! If I'm still doing the whole single mom thing, I want to do it awesomely! :)
tennis, I think I'm pretty good for a lefty. Soccer. Indoor, outdoor...whatever!
hiking Silver Lake, heading up to Bear Lake, trail running Provo Canyon, Bonneville Shoreline trail and being in the mountains! Driving the Alpine Loop and stopping at all the trails to explore a little!
being #3 out of 4 in an awesome, loving family!
looking at real estate...going through model homes and drawing out floor plans and design ideas!
a random trip to Pismo/Cali or to Vegas!
a nice hotel room (Marriott!) after a long, hot day hiking or biking or whatever outdoors!
being a stay at home mom to my 3 young kids!
calculators! Math is not my strength!
a perfect night out socializing with friends, eating yummy food or dessert, ending up at someone's house to play games and calling it a night in time for some down time with the hubs...that sounds pretty awesome to me!
living in places like California, Washington DC, Costa Rica, Honduras, Texas and even, yes, Utah! I love Utah!
graphic design and illustration. I worked hard an extra year (5 yrs total) to get the "Fine Arts" part of my degree. I taught design on the college level till my 2nd child was born and I enjoy teaching computers and design to older students.
my religion. I love being LDS. I love having standards!
a man who is addiction free and has self control and ROCKS at self discipline!
that I've gone through so much these past 10 years and have learned how to be compassionate and sensitive to others. I would have never understood divorce like I do, until it unfortunately happened. My parents and my family all have been married for what seems like forever. Divorce isn't common in my family...so this is a huge paradigm shift for us all!
LOOKING FOR A GUY...
with a solid testimony who puts God first.
who can be my best friend!
who can laugh in bed at late night tv with me!
who loves to be spontaneous, play hard and work hard!
who is ambitious and educated!
a family guy who likes kids, just a little! :p
a guy with fairly normal relatives! :p
who likes to speak his mind and have opinions!
who likes date night...rarely had that in my previous marriage...would love to have time set aside for just us frequently!
who ENJOYS a balance of work, family, church and play!
who is funny and happy!
who is professional and serious about his career...and loves what he does!
who has interests of his own and isn't clingy.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me better! :)
