I Love Me A Good Personality Test!

I know it has been forever since I have posted anything, we have had a lot of big things going on, and I have been crazy busy. I will be posting about all of that sometime soon, but for now I am de-stressing by reading other people's blogs... I was stalking this blog the other day, and she listed a link to a personality test. I have always loved taking those kinds of tests, and I always find it fascinating to see how accurate they are. This test was no exception. The link is below for all of you that want to take it:

Here is my results, I was a little weirded out by how accurate I felt like it was! Now I can't wait until later so that I can make Brian take it!! (I am curious to see what other people think, let me know how accurate you think it is by leaving me a comment.)

 Extraverted Sensing Feeling Judging  (ESFJ for short)

Guardians of birthdays, holidays and celebrations, ESFJs are generous entertainers. They enjoy and joyfully observe traditions and are liberal in giving, especially where custom prescribes.

 All else being equal, ESFJs enjoy being in charge. They see problems clearly and delegate easily, work hard and play with zest. ESFJs, as do most SJs, bear strong allegiance to rights of seniority. They willingly provide service (which embodies life's meaning) and expect the same from others.

ESFJs are easily wounded. And when wounded, their emotions will not be contained. They by nature "wear their hearts on their sleeves," often exuding warmth and bonhomie, but not infrequently boiling over with the vexation of their souls. Some ESFJs channel these vibrant emotions into moving dramatic performances on stage and screen.

Strong, contradictory forces consume the ESFJ. Their sense of right and wrong wrestles with an overwhelming rescuing, 'mothering' drive. This sometimes results in swift, immediate action taken upon a transgressor, followed by stern reprimand; ultimately, however, the prodigal is wrested from the gallows of their folly, just as the noose tightens and all hope is lost, by the very executioner!

An ESFJ at odds with self is a remarkable sight. When a decision must be made, especially one involving the risk of conflict (abhorrent to ESFJs), there ensues an in-house wrestling match between the aforementioned black-and-white Values and the Nemesis of Discord. The contender pits self against self, once firmly deciding with the Right, then switching to Prudence to forestall hostilities, countered by unswerving Values, an exhausting, winner take all.

As caretakers, ESFJs sense danger all around--germs within, the elements without, unscrupulous malefactors, insidious character flaws. The world is a dangerous place, not to be trusted. Not that the ESFJ is paranoid; 'hyper-vigilant' would be more precise. And thus they serve excellently as protectors, outstanding in fields such as medical care and elementary education.


Now for a Random Picture of Andrew...

You're So Vain....I Bet You Think This Post Is About You

Well, its not about you, its actually a bunch of pictures of Brian and I. We went to Florida of a vacation and at our resort there was a photographer so we did a little photo shoot.
**Warning** If you can't handle seeing a lot of pictures of Beautiful people, then stop reading now.






























Orlando, Florida February 11th-18th. We left Andrew home with Grandma Bryant, and just enjoyed being "just us" for a little bit. (And I even resisted calling to check on my boy every hour on the hour! I only called once or twice a day.) Oh and I only cried every time I saw a baby, or watched the Shamu and baby Shamu show at Sea World, but that's another story for a later day. We got to stay at this BEAUTIFUL Resort that I won at a work party from Dr.Wise (THANKS!!) I will blog and post pictures later of what we did all week. :)

Mommy WOW I'm a BIG Boy Now!!

Andrew has been so Independent lately.He loves to figure out how things work, and he copies EVERYTHING! It is so much fun, he is learning so much everyday! This week he has started randomly refusing to eat when I feed him, and he also will not feed himself from his tray. He wants me to put the food on the Fork then put the fork in his hand, so he can feed himself. Silly Boy.

He got this super cute airplane for his Birthday (because ever since he was a tiny baby, every time he hears an airplane over head he looks up and follows it across the sky) Turns out it is actually a remote control toy (we just never put batteries in it) It has a forward and backward arrow, and HE LOVES IT! He is so smart, he watch Brian play with it then took it from him, sat down, and started playing with it all by himself! (sorry the video is sideways, I couldn't figure out how to fix it)

Barber Shop







I am unusual, I unlike most moms, have no attachment to Andrew's hair. He had 3 hair cuts before he was a year old. I hate shaggy hair, and I think when it gets long he looks like a little rag-a-muffin. My mom usually cuts Andrew's hair, but she is not willing to cut it as short as I want it. (she loves his hair, and it makes her sad to cut it) So I took matters into my own hands, not literally, I DO NOT Cut Hair! There is a reason people go to school to learn how. Ask Brian, he MADE me cut his ONCE, notice it was only ONE time. And for good reason, it looked TERRIBLE...Anyway, I took Andrew down to the Barber Shop (not the salon, that's where girls go) he sat in the chair like a big boy, and the lady that cut his hair said he was the best baby that she had ever seen. (I was so proud, this momma was glowing!) He was so good, never cried, and even sat kinda still (which if you know Andrew, that is a BIG DEAL).



Grandpa, if you are reading this, Andrew wants to go to the Barber Shop with you the next time we come to see you in Montana. It will be a fun Grandpa and Me Barber Shop Day!

Living a More Productive Life

Whenever I make Goals for the New year I like to have a theme to go with it. This year I have Chosen Living a More Productive Life.
The talk "Reflections on a Consecrated Life" by D. Todd Christofferson Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in the October 2010 General Conference. Found Here: http://lds.org/general-conference/2010/10/reflections-on-a-consecrated-life?lang=eng
Has been coming to my mind for a while now, and I feel like I need to change the way I am spending my time. This quote really slapped me in the face, and I feel like I need to make a change.

“Every day, every hour, every minute of your span of mortal years must sometime be accounted for. And it is in this life that you walk by faith and prove yourself able to choose good over evil, right over wrong, enduring happiness over mere amusement. And your eternal reward will be according to your choosing."

So with that in mind here are my goals for 2012:




  • Go to Bed at 10pm


  • Wake up with Brian and Read Scriptures as a Couple


  • Exercise 3 Times per Week


  • Have an Attitude of Gratitude, continued from last years Goals, (by Keeping Thank You Cards and Stamps in my Purse so I make sure I don't forget to Show my Gratitude to People)


  • Be more "Jen Like" (Jen is a girl I work with and is seriously the nicest person I know, like she never says a bad word about anyone, and she isn't a sassy pants, and she never suffers from word-vomit, you know when you say stuff before you can put it through your filter.)


  • Run a 5K (No Walking)


  • Have a More Consistent Schedule for Andrew


So those are my goals, I feel like I can achieve them, but at the same time it will force me to learn and grow as a person.Wish Me Luck!



What are your Goals for 2012?
