showing affection and making others feel special!
the Plain White T's and Chicago!
traveling-by plane, roadtrip...whatever!
design, photography, computers, typography and being creative!
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!
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
planning any party!
wandering around Costco and buying things I don't need! : )
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 grad 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!
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!
LOOKING FOR A GUY...
who is addiction free.
with a solid testimony who puts God first.
who can laugh in bed at late night tv with me!
who is ambitious, educated and loves what he does!
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 ENJOYS a balance of work, family, church and play!
who has interests of his own and isn't clingy.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me better! :)
