Pea-NUT, Peanut Butter! and syrup!


Peanut Butter!
Isaac's first attempt at his own pbj. Luckily I did the jam. But when he showed me the finished 2-inch thick sandwich, I opened it to see what ELSE he had put in there! Much to my surprise, it was just peanut butter! And I thought Sethy was the peanut butter fan.

And finally...yes, that's syrup. I was wondering what was taking him so long to eat his waffles. This isn't the first time we've had a syrup catastrophe with Seth. At least this time it wasn't on the carpet like a year ago. It was just all over his ENTIRE body! Unfortunately, this go 'round he consumed much more of it. Like almost half a container's worth! It was lite syrup, but still! I almost called poison control! What followed was the biggest sugar low I've ever seen!

Happy Birthday Samantha!

Catching Flies

It's Seth, then Isaac and then Samantha. Watch Sam closely. What is she doing? One of the employees suggested she was trying to catch flies. Any other suggestions?

Does Anyone Know...

...if there is a way to archive within a page element? I want to start archiving my "Jonesims" quotes within the page element itself (or I guess I could archive it in a separate page element if I had to). I think I saw it once on someone's blog, but of course, I can't remember whose.

I've Been Tagged! Who's Next?

What were you doing a decade ago?

I was walking A LOT! And enjoying the colorful blossoms of spring. I was in Korea in a beautiful city in the country named WonJu. I had almost exactly one month left of my mission. At this point I was contemplating my mission and wishing I could somehow have done more. I still have dreams of going back to Korea on another mission.

5 things on my to do list:

1. Get out of bed...eventually.
2. Take a shower.
3. Get dressed? maybe.
4. Feel guilty about not cleaning the house.
5. Take a nap.

5 places I've lived:

1. Orem, UT
2. Burbank, CA
3. Provo, UT (BYU)
4. Korea
5. Long Beach, CA

5 jobs I've had:

1. file clerk
2. extra booking agency (booked extras on movies, commercials, tv) (best job ever!)
3. book labeler at BYU Library (next best job EVER!)
4. staffer for Volt Temp Services
5. Angels Gate Park Coordinator (ran day camps, booked filming and weddings and directed special events)

(No, Melissa, I've never telemarketed)

5 things people don't know about me:

1. I was diagnosed with diabetes after my mission.
2. I'm addicted to thrift store shopping, zit-picking, and avoiding cleanning house like the plague.
3. I'm not a real icecream fan. I can almost always pass on icecream. (Please still be my friend!)
4. I am on drugs and am LOVING it! I'm a huge advocate of anti-anxietydrugs! Just ask!
5. Nothing much left to say....I think I'll go take a nap.

I tag Su, Lisa, Brooklyn Cook, Cari Rath, and Lori Hess!

Hugging Ryan Seacrest and Other Such Nonsense

Melissa, Natalie and I got to go see the dress rehearsal for Americal Idol yesterday. I had told my sister in Poland that morning that we were going but that the judges would not be there, only the contestants and Ryan Seacrest. She said that the only reason to go would be to see him anyway. Well, I don't really have those same sentiments. His mouth is really weird and when he was a dj for star he always sounded a little way too into himself.

But when he came and stood right next to us and was shaking everybody's hands, I had to ask him if I could give him a hug from Poland. He said that there was no way he could make it to Poland right then. I told him it was for my sister who lives there. Charitable or self-serving? So, he gave me a hug and then asked about her, if she was Polish or what she was doing in Poland. I was surprised that he even asked. So, I guess he's not that bad of a person! But after that I couldn't help but wonder what my motive was for that hug? I kept wishing my sister were there to have received it and that it served no real purpose for her! So at that point I could only conclude that it was purely self-serving.

It was really cool to be right up against the stage to see the contestant's faces so closely, and it was fun to watch them perform in person. But the coolest part of the rehearsal, other than the fake Paula and her hilarious comments, was waving to Niel Diamond who was hanging out watching a few feet away from us. We tried to get him up on stage, but he just smiled back and waved.

Here are a few things I observed:

1. Ryan Seacrest has a huge scar under his chin.
2. The studio/stage looks HUGE on tv and is amazingly small and not so impressive in real life.
3. Carly's voice fills up the whole studio and is super powerful.
4. Kristy Lee is even more beautiful in person.
5. Brooke has NO butt.
6. Even though I don't appreciate Jason as a musician, his eyes NEVER stopped sparkling!
7. David Archuleta really is shy and modest. What a cutie!

We had a great time and are hoping we'll get tickets to a live taping soon.
