8 things I want to do before I die:

1. Soften my heart and love EVERYONE
2. Make sure everyone close to me knows how much I love them.
3. Share the gosple with everyone I can.
4. Get collegen in my lips - just enough to make them like A. Jole
5. Read the scriptures and know all the things my Heavenly Father wants me to know.
6. Go to 3rd world country and serve the people.
7. Start traditions for the Bill Guttery Family that will go on forever
8. Make sure Bill doesnt die before me.

8 things I say often:

2. Lets say prayers
3. Time to do jobs.
4. It is what it is.

6. I hate this question
7. I know I should read more
8. Maybe next year.

What I could listen to over and over:

1. Tessa singing: Walkin on Sunshine, Gold Digger, any song she hears the girls sing. Anything my girls sing: Kayla - When I fall in love, Danica - You say it best, Breea - National Anthem, McKenna - Beat it (Micheal Jackson style) & Shayna - Scripture Power!
2. The voices in my head saying "have some fun, the cleaning will always be there"
3. Most anything Micheal Buble
4. Bill, when he tells about past experiences

7. The waitress say " Your filet will be out momentarily"
8. Bill saying "We gotta a free (anything)"
8 things that attract me to my best friends

1. They tolerate me
2. Fun and Funny
3. Been through alot and have alot to teach me
4. laugh at dumb stuff
5. like to play games and pranks
6. listen to my dumb ramblings
7. see the good in me
8. good at knowing when I need them

8 things I've learned this past year:

1. Time is one thing you will always need more of.
2. You dont have to fill your life to have a full life.
3. Its fun having a son (in-law)
4. Weddings are more fun than stressful
5. A ward split is hard, but a GOOD thing
6. Theres always time to do a little more
7. Extra weight is more stubborn now that Im older
8. Even if you know your daughter is where she should be, with who she should be with, you feel the void in your home.

8 people that I think should do the Crazy 8's: I think anyone who has 15 minutes should do this, it makes you think and hopefully my kids will know me better after reading this.

Sweet post following the Car Crap one! Ha ha. We're flying into AZ Friday! Woohoo!

Kristal said...

I love you! You're one of the best sisters ever! Oh, except you failed to mention your passionate about your sisters! But I could listen to Tess sing walking on sunshine over and over...wait, we do! And your reading list is sadly longer than mine. Let's make that a goal. Let's start a hatch family readin club where we have to read one book every 2 months. Alright, I like this one, I'm gunna do it for the children.

Kristal said...

Oh and traditions...I KNOW!!!! I want to do the same thing. We've already started. German pancakes every Sunday (oughtta help this weight problem right?) But Holly was telling me about her family traditions, and I couldn't think of any that our family has. Well, until this year and the killer non talent show for thanksgivin!

Vonda said...

Heres some Hatch traditions: German Pancakes at most holidays with buttermilk syrup of course. Making Tamales at Christmas, Cousin Gift exchange, Christmas talent shows, Paul Hatch reunion including testimony meeting and service projects (started last year), trips to the candy store with Grandpa, Christmas Caroling to all the Aunts, 4th of July at the Tenneys, Cards til 1:00 Am. I call these traditions, but your living it everyday right now. I would like more though and if we want to switch the talent show to Thanksgiving, Im all over that! One less thing to worry about at Christmas. Im gonna blog about the Bill Guttery traditions too.

Vonda said...

One book a month and Im in!

Crystal said...

Vonda, you should come to book club. We meet every 2nd Tuesday

Vonda said...

Every Tuesday? That sound like ALOT of reading, or do you get together to eat cookies? Cuz I can do that.

Jamie Young said...

Okay, I love that among all the spiritual and uplifting things that you want to do before you die, you stuck in lip collagen!

jana said...

k- almost got weepy Vonda, I love your lips, and I have to ditto the lip collagen, because I know you are so serious. But I like your lips. With collagen you can't smile so good, and your smile is great!
