In The Beginning

I will say right out loud-never in all of my life have I wanted to do a blog. In my opinion who really wants to hear my opinion! However, I need to speak truth and say I have a few pleasures that are all mine. First, I love books-love to read them, buy them and just look at them. Second, I love ice cream, this will be clear and obvious to you by the size of my gut, but there it is. Third, I LOVE to read my friend Shannon's blog. This is something I have come to look forward to and feel inspired by. It occurred to me as I was reading it today that even if no one in the whole world ever reads it it is a fun way for me to get some of the memories that I shouldn't be forgetting anyway written down. So if you do check in, thanks. For those of you who love my kids, I am sure that's every last one of you, there will be pictures as well! So this is me. Heather Lynn Poulson Friant mother of five sons, wife to one amazing husband and reluctant owner of a dog named Snoop and a fish named Ella (both girls though, so I really should appreciate the added femaleness...)

You read my blog? I didn't even know that, you silly! Thanks for saying you like it. I have avoided the blog for years. But now that I have one I really like doing it.'s the good news...I found a site where you can have them bound (once you have enough content) so that you can save them as an actual book. I was always feeling guilty about not doing enough journaling and especially recording cute things about the kids. I also felt guilty for spending time on the computer that should be spent doing something important. Talk about killing two birds with one stone! I can't wait to see pics of the kids and hear about everything. I know some people that read a billion blogs and I don't have time to read people's that I don't even know, but it is really such a treat for me to have a small break and check in on my sisters or, now you! Hurray! Its funny because I get sad when I come to my sisters jibs (thats what I've decided to call them cause I don't like the word blog so much) and I get there and there's no new post. Thats not fun at all. is your first comment and hopefully I will never write such a long one again!

What an inspiration you are to me! I am so glad you decided to do this. It is addicting and I am excited to read what you have to say. Thanks for doing this Heather. I don't think you understand how much I look up to you and appreciate all your thoughts and opinions. I love you. Jodi
