describe the most vivid dream you can remember:
i used to have this one all the time as a kid, like, ALL the time. and to this day, i remember it better than any dream. k, so there were are (my fam) sitting in our house when suddenly there are earthquakes and fires and volcanoes and screaming outside. so we all stand up to run and a t-rex tips our roof off. mom and dad ran out to the garage and told us kids to run to gramma (oaks) house. so we start running through the streets hiding from dinosaurs and avoiding hot lava. we never made it, i always woke up before then. so.. we probably got eaten. or fell in a volcano, who knows.
more exciting business, bryan's little brother carson (or as i call him, crunch) was just called to serve the Lord in Jackson, Mississippi on september 11!!
(old pic... but it's a good one)

wanna hear something crazy? so when i was interviewing to be a nanny, i posted on facebook that i was having an interview and a girl from my ward at utah state commented on my status saying this:
little did i know, it was the very family i was interviewing with. and also the family i am working for now. i didn't find this out until later but it's like, even if i hadn't interviewed with this family through the agency, it was still a possibility for me to have crossed their path.
