Crazy Eights

I got blog tagged by Clare to do "Crazy Eights", so here it is!

8 things I’m passionate about:
1. My sweet hubby
2. Emery
3. Food
4. History
5. Working Out!
6. Being productive with my time (which often means I over-committ, but I'd rather over-committ than under-committ or I'll go crazy!)
7. Having lots of kids
8. Goals, living the Gospel, getting good grades (when I was a student) - or anything else that requires drive, self-control or determination. Let's just say I'm kind of a nut case.

8 things I want to do before I die:
1. Go on missions with Aaron
2. Have lots more babies
3. Be a grandma and spoil my grandbabies like my mom and mom-in-law do
4. Stand next to Shaq (in person - a life-sized cut out won't cut it)
5. Go on month-long climbing adventure with Aaron (or maybe multiple week-long ones)
6. Write a book (I have a few in mind, but I'll start with one!)
7. Occupy a space that has more than 1 bedroom
8. Get education beyond my BA

8 things I say often:
1. I love you
2. Emery - or any form of her name
3. Little farty pants (imagine it in an accusatory tone)
4. What do you want for dinner? (my constant battle with creative cooking)
5. I'll show you...
6. When are you coming home? (I have a very busy husband... who unfortunately I love to have around even when he's so busy!)
7. Oops!
8. I'm hungry

8 books I’ve recently read:
1. All of the Harry Potter's
2. Twilight
3. The Secret Life of Bees
4. A Mormon in the White House?: 10 Things Every American Should Know About Mitt Romney
5. Heathy Sleep Habits, Happy Baby
6. Book of Mormon
7. What to Expect When You're Expecting
8. Lots and lots of pregnancy books/magazines/info

8 songs I could listen to over and over:
1. any of the dozens of songs Aaron makes up on a daily basis
2. Amy Grant - Breath of Heaven
3. this one song on the Mae CD
4. MoTab - My Shepherd Will Supply My Need
5. Bob Marley - Could You Be Loved
6. Moulin Rouge Soundtrack - Come What May
7. Colby Callait - Bubbly
8. Little Big Town - Bring It On Home

8 things I’ve learned this past year:
1. The Lord's timing is always better than my timing
2. No matter how busy life is, every year gets busier
3. Being pregnant is fun!
4. Life would be impossibly unaffordable if it weren't for tithing and fast offerings
5. When in doubt, have faith
6. Labor, delivery and motherhood are some of the coolest things a woman can ever experience
7. I would be lost without a "To-Do List"... occupationally, personally, in EVERYTHING!
8. Getting 3 hours of sleep at a time eventually catches up with you
