So check it out and give it a try yourself.
Attached or Single: Attached
Best Friend: Would definitely be Alex. Girlfriends: There are so many of you I won't make a
list, but I would hope you know who you are.
Cake or Pie: Pie! Cream pies are the best, but I'll take a fruit pie warm with ice cream!
Day of Choice: Friday, because that is usually when we get out with Alex and stay up later. I also have to add Monday because I also enjoy my own time to be lazy while Alex is working.
Essential Item: Hooded Sweat Shirts! Dr. Pepper! Chocolate!
Favorite Color: I know its not much of a color, but I love white!
Gummy Bears or Worms: sour worms, and thanks to my mother-in-law I need to include cinnamon bears.
Hometown: Eagle, Idaho
Favorite Flower: Star Gazer Lilies
Indulgences: Eating Out, Arctic Circle Milk-shakes, Girls night out (a rare occasion)
January or July: Definitely July!
Kids: 2 Girls...Dejah and Mycah
Life is Incomplete Without: Family
Number of Siblings: 2 Brothers, 2 Sisters, 7 Brother-in-Laws, 6 Sister-in-Laws
Oranges or Apples: Oranges if they are cold and juicy
Phobias: Bees! This one time I went on a rafting trip and wanted to be tan. So before the trip I got a nice bronzy spray tan. It pretty much makes you smell like Maple Syrup. Lets just say the bees along the river loved my yummy smelling tan and swarmed me during half the trip. After a couple bee stings I tucked my head into my life jacket and closed my eyes and plugged my ears so that I wouldn't see them. I can't stand those critters!
Quote: "No one on their death bed ever wished they put more time in at the office!"
Reasons to Smile: Springtime, Fun times with family and friends, my children having a good time, watching Alex wake board.
If I had all the money in the world, what would I do with it: First off, Alex and I desperately need make-overs. Our clothing is out of date and in a desperate need of replacement! Second, I would get a bigger home. Not a mansion, just practical enough for a larger family. Third, Food Storage. We have none, and may use part of that "stimulus check" to stock up. Fourth, get Alex a boat. Last but not least, share-share-share!
Season: I'm sorry but I can't pick just one. Spring! I love the weather, the walks and the beautiful flowers. Summer! I love going to the lake on a hot summer day, camping out, and BBQ's! Fall. I love to slip into my sweats and sit and watch football with my husband.
Unknown Fact About Me: I still sleep with my baby blanky. I know its sad, but I just can't part with it.
Vegetarian or Meat Eater: I love some yummy meat, but I have discovered vegetables in my "older" years and love them when prepared just right.
Worst Habit: Cracking my little knuckles right before bed. Alex hates it!
Your Favorite Food: It depends on my mood. My top picks would be PaPa Johns Pizza, Chinese, BBQ Ribs, Fettuchini Alfredo, and ICE CREAM.
Zodiac: Leo (that's right...I'm a lioness so don't mess with me...Alex)

On the flip side of things. I weighed the least I've ever weighed after my first Baby Dejah. I was sick in bed for three weeks and couldn't eat. Not to mention the "nursing" factor that sucks all the nutrients from your body to produce breast milk. Lets just say I haven't weighed that since I was in Middle School. I have currently platoed at a comfortable mark and really want to get in shape and get healthy.
Now for Alex. It seems to me that when those Beal boys leave home they go crazy on eating bad foods because their Mom is such a health nut. Alex tells me he was always hungry and to get goodies they had to go to their Grandma's house. I can't get Alex to eat vegetables very often. Well here is a picture of Alex just ten years ago.
