Tag- You're it...

So I've been tagged twice now, so I need to get caught up.
I was just tagged for a "Friday Fill In" from Jess. Here's my answers in bold:

1. Some relationships are meant to teach you something about yourself.

2. Jon Schmidt with Peter Breinholt is the last concert I saw; it was outside at Tuacahn (Jeff and I were engaged), and really fun.

3. Spring should be blossoming at a faster rate!

4. Oh no! I forgot to change the clothes to the dryer- thanks for the reminder. :)

5. I've recently started to get baby hungry... :)

6. Jeff's laugh, Dallin's dance moves, and Gilmore Girls never fails to make me smile.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to going to a high school dance again- Jr. Prom! Jeff and I are chaperone's and they asked us to dress up too, tomorrow my plans include winning the grand prize at Ladies night at Deseret Book!, and Sunday, I want to have a really yummy dinner that I don't have to make!

So- Now I tag Lacey, Brielle, Teresa and Nicole.
The other tag was by Jeff's Cousin, Charlotte, and it's a very... unique kind of tag- haha. Here's what you do:

1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages)
2. Turn to page 123
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog
5. Tag 5 people

So- The closest book to me at the moment was "The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands", by Dr. Laura Schlessinger. Haha... I've never actually read the entire book in order, but I've read a lot of excerpts one at a time. It's actually pretty good... Anyway. The 5th sentence was:
"Is it that men don't need romancing?"
Haha- I'll give you a little background from the previous paragraph:
"... That a wife cleans the house or drives the kids all over town or argues a big court case is all wonderful, but it's not giving of herself to her husband. While fulfilling the obligations and responsibilities of taking care of the house and family is an essential part of giving in a marriage, other folks could be hired to do it. The real essence of giving is more intimate, sensitive and vulnerable, and up close and personal... Romancing a spouse is supposed to be a two-way street, but I'm wracking my brain trying to think of one movie, book, play, or conversation on the radio, when I've heard a man describe his wife as romantic. I can't think of one time. Is it that men don't need romancing? No, don't believe that. Is it that men define romancing differently? Probably... when men think of being romantic, they think of what women like: sweet words, flowers, perfume, dinners out, and gifts. When men think of women being romantic toward them, they think less of what she can go out and buy or specifically do; and think more of how she presents herself to him as a woman and how she reinforces his ego by treating him as desirable and competent. It's how she makes him feel like a real man and her hero."

:) Anyway- Dr. Laura is an interesting lady- I've never really listened to her show, but my grandma got me the book, and it turned out better than I thought. I tag: Jess Feth, Jessica, Steve, April, and Laura... Just because I wonder what kind of books they have lying around.
