just 50lbs of books: men tell all

did you catch my guest post at the rachael way yesterday?  it is a good story from my childhood! 
on this here blog today, i am linking up with heavens to betsy!! i love asking my guy questions! 

1 // if you could write a book, what topic would you write about and why? the biodesign process because it would help me learn it even better and i would be able to pass whatever small nuggets of knowledge on which would make me feel good.

2 // what is one thing on your bucket list, or one thing that you'd like to do or accomplish in your lifetime?  i want to go to rome with you.  and greece.  {oh that's so sweet! i can't wait to do that either babe!}

3 // if you could look out your window and only see one view for the rest of your life, what would you want to see? the temple we were married in with your face on it.

4 // imagine you're opening a shop.  what are you selling?  if this were possible i would want to sell cheap medical devices so more people can have more medical procedures without going into major debt.

5 // if you could have 50lbs of anything other than money, what would it be?  books.  fantasy books, textbooks about things i'm interested in, classical literature.  just books i would want to read. 

6 // time to brag on your girl...tell us one thing that makes you proud of your girlfriend/fiance/wife!  i am proud of how she has grown her blog!  it has been an amazing thing to watch from the past year going from 18 followers to how many she has now.  i am also proud of her strength.  well you have had many many hardships this past year and you don't give up! 


and now i want to introduce you to laynah from rose gold and ringlets!! when i first read her blog, i got kind of obesessed with her and started stalking her and emailing her and was like "we must be friends" in not a creepy way AT ALL! i just love her love story, that she got married in the LA LDS temple (so jealous! LA is my favorite city in the world!) and that she lives in california!! i want to be her bestie and when we go visit LA in april, i will definitely force her to meet me because my obsession is just at that point.  she is funny and sweet and sarcastic and all the good stuff.  read her blog now. 

1.Tell us a little bit about what we will find on your blog.  Life? Recipes? Fitness?  I don't take myself or my blog too seriously so I don't really know what category I fall under...lifestyle, I guess? Part of me wishes I could be a fashion blogger but I'm definitely not cool enough for that haha, so I honestly just ramble about whatever comes to mind. I tend to overshare (I've been told that I have NO filter) but honestly I don't mind putting myself out there because I'm a super open person and I think that we could all learn something from others' experiences, so there's nothing to hide.

2. If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
Can I say my future self?? I feel like if my life was a roller coaster, childhood was getting buckled up and ready, and I am at the part right now where we're climbing that first hill..and it feels like I've been climbing this hill for a LONG time!  My husband and I have been "trying" for over a year and I'd ask me how long it took us to have a baby, or if we ended up adopting. I'd ask about the bad habits I shouldn't start, and the good ones that I need to start now.

3. Describe your perfect Saturday: If you look a few posts back in my blog, I created this "Marriage Board" with a chore chart/scripture reading chart/a years worth of Saturday date ideas. There's enough "adventure" ideas for us to have two adventures a month, and I LOVE LOVE crossing things off of that list!. The one I'm most excited for is zip lining in Wrightwood or the lava tube hike.

4. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Or, what is your favorite place you have traveled to?  Africa! Yes, yes, I know, Ebola. But I've been obsessed with Africa for the longest time and I would die for a magical African Safari vacay. 

5. if you could give advice to your younger self, what would it be? Ohhh gosh there are so many things to tell my younger self...first of all, of all the things you screwed up in your life, dont worry - you're not gonna screw up when you choose a husband (that's gotta count for something). I would have a stern talking to with my younger self, because that's what she needed! But then I would soften up a little bit and remind her of the great worth she has that she is completely unaware of. I would also show her a picture of her biological dad, because even though he's out of the picture, it was quite a shock to find out that I have his smile when I was 23 years old.

isn't she fantastic?  i love her!! 


  1. Too cute! Love that he wants to take you to Rome and Greece!

  2. I'm loving all these male bucket lists! I'm curious about what my guy would say, lol! (Definitely nothing travel-related.) What a supportive, smart, caring man you have!

  3. Awww, Taran is so sweet. I hope you two get to go to Greece and Rome very soon!

    And Laynah sounds just delightful!

  4. Aww he sounds like such a sweetheart! And I would also LOVE to go to Rome and Greece one day. I have so many places that I would love to see on my bucket list


Hearing from you makes my day!!
