Six Facts (you get to decide if they are interesting or not)

Okay, so Jen tagged me and I think it's way too much fun! I guess that means you get to know some facts about me. I am not that interesting, but I will try to get the good stuff!

Here are the rules:

A: Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.

B: At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog for these rules.

Easy, huh?

1-I love burned popcorn. Not charcoal burnt, but nice and semi black. So much more Flavor! I also love burned carrots, burned potatoes, burned meat. LOVE IT!

2-I LOVE TO READ. It really doesn't matter what subject matter or how long they are. I just adore reading. Adam knows that if I get a new book, I am pretty much useless until it is done. Good thing is, I am a quick reader, so it only takes an evening or so for me to finish.

3-I have a deep and horrifying fear of the dark and of clowns. I am 25 years old and I am still afraid of the dark. Clowns are just wrong and evil. Sorry for any of you who have aunts and uncles in the circus, but they are just wrong!

4-Like you, Jen, I am super emotional. I think it might be a Walker thing. My dad is the emotional one of the family. But I am super emotional. I can cry at the drop of a hat. Sometimes I am super strong and nothing can phase me, but the next second I will get a popcorn kernal in my teeth and end up sobbing. I have no idea what makes me that way, but there you have it.

5-I think 15 steps ahead. It makes it so that I carry things in my purse just in case. Such as, I have a couple of diapers and wipes in my purse. I don't have any kids. Really, I carry them just in case I am out with my nephew and my sister-in-law has run out or perhaps I am using the ladies room and a frantic mom has run out. I carry a stapler, a thing of tape, a scarf (and I live in Florida!), pretty much anything you might ever need. I am not able to be excited about something until it is actually happening because I sit and think about all of the things that might happen to prevent it happening. Weird, but I am very organized. So that's good!

6-I HATE being the center of attention. I love theater and acting and whatnot, but I hate being the center of attention. Birthdays are horrible, when you are sitting in front of everyone and they are watching you and waiting for you to open gifts. Or when people hear you are an actor and they say, "Oh, sing something for us!" I hate that! It is sooooo awkward. I don't know if I will ever feel comfortable with stuff like that. I get better at hiding my discomfort, but I am never comfortable with it.

Okay, there you have it! Here are my six:

Amy Shreeve
Kristi and Andrew Hill
Heather Daveline
Tynan and Josh
Rachel and Mike
Timmy Hall

If you have already done it, you don't have to do it again, but you guys are it!

Our Florida Life!

Oh give me a home, where the lizards do roam, where the rain and humidity flow! Where seldom is heard a 4 syllable word and the sun gives you blisters all day! Home, home in Florida! Where Charlie and Bailey all play! Where seldom is heard a 4 syllable word and the sun gives you blisters all day!

Life in Florida is as fun as ever. Adam and I are loving life. Adam is actually.......deep breaths............liking his show. For those of you who don't know, "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" is probably last on Adam's list of shows he wants to do in the near future. I think it falls right after tap dancing with Satan in "La Cage" for eternity. However, it's a lot better than he anticipated and he is having fun being the "dancer" of the group. Thank you MDT!

I am doing really well also. I have been having so much fun with Daria. She is such a sweet little girl and I am having so much fun homemaking. Although, I am going a bit stir crazy. I NEED MY SHOW TO START!!!!!!! "Music Man" starts in November, so I am just sitting tight till then.

Oh, I just got a new family picture of the Walker's. We took this in August when all 17 of us were in Utah to celebrate my parents 30 Wedding Anniversary. Wow, my sisters are GORGEOUS!!! We had sooo much fun together.

We miss our family and friends, but we'll see ya'll soon.

A baby boy for Allison and Steve!

Allison had her baby! Hooray for her! and Steve! I am so happy for them. This is my very best friend for college. She is stunning and I am so happy for both of them!!! I am sure that they are going to be great parents. I just wish I could be there to hold the little guy. Congrats to the Books Family!!!! Tyler is so handsome, what a doll!

A day at the Pumpkin Patch!

As I have mentioned before, I watch an adorable little girl named Daria during the week. She is just so sweet. I get to pretend to be a mommy and we go places and play all day long. Well, Heather (my sister-in-law who lives next door) and I decided to dress up Daria and Andrew (my nephew, Heather's son) and take them to the local pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins. It was sooo much fun.

Here is Daria, Charlie, and Andrew sitting patiently while we went crazy with the cameras

Here is one of us heading to the Patch

And this is one of Andrew and Daria as Pilgrams!

Okay, so how sweet are those little guys? I am going to be INSANE when it's my own kids. We had sooo much fun.

Our Blog

Hello Friends!

We decided to start a blog because we have moved around so much, it's hard to keep in touch with everyone. We are having a wonderful time here in Florida. Adam is in "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". He is playing Simeon and having such a blast! It feels so great to be making a living doing what you love. We are also both working from home doing data entry and customer service for Adam's company he worked for in New York. It is really nice to be able to earn money while having the freedom to do what you really want to do. I am watching a young girl in our ward during the day. My show doesn't start till the middle of November, so I am playing the waiting game.

We are loving all the time we have with family down here. It is so nice to be close to them. We do miss all of our friends in New York and REALLY miss our branch family. We are excited to learn what we need to down here so that we can get back to NY soon.

No Baby news, so don't ask. All I know is that pretty much everyone I know is pregnant or just had a baby and I am missing all of it! I wish I wasn't.

We will definately keep you updated!

Andrea and Adam
