If I could go back in time and witness one event, it would be when Jesus visited the Nephites, after he had been resurrected. I get goosebumps just thinking about it! Love ya! Sara

It was tough to choose which question I wanted to answer! If I had the chance to repeat one year of my life, it would be junior year of high school. If I knew then what I knew now, I could of saved myself from unnecessary anguish and enjoy myself in high school rather than dread it. However, if the mistakes I made then made me who I am and where I am today, then I wouldn't change a thing. ;) Thanks for making me ponder today, Jen.

If I could wake up with a new interest or trait it would be to paint. I remember when I was in 5th grade, my teacher was an artist. He pulled myself and another student named Kevin aside and started teaching us how to draw and paint. I loved doing it and had a picture hung on the wall. I would never claim to be a natural, but there is something extremely theraputic about studying and bringing colors out. I have heard of a painter that teaches a 3 day class that will make you into an artist you could never imagine. But I cannot find his classes and my time I can be away is so little. So I tuck into my "somedays" dream when I take an art class, really learn how to play the guitar and lean to speak Spanish! -Suzanne

If I could repeat a year over in my life I would do it in a heartbeat! I would absolutely love to relive in my first year in Provo. There wasn't a better time in life and I wish everyone could experience that freaking fun I had. I am not sure anything can compare.

Your blog is so full of variety - - it's one of my very favorites. :)

OK, I would love to wait up with artistic abilities! I love the fine arts with a passion and consider myself to have a good eye (I even got my minor in art history). However...I cannot draw anything more advanced than a stick figure and I'm the center of many Pictionary sketch jokes. There ya go. :) How about you?

If i woke up with a new skill i would have to go with the power of retaining knowledge. To able to read a book and remember most everything i read. Of course, It's not possible to retain everything but i would like to retain as much as humanly possible. That'd be pretty sweet. It'd make college a lot easier and fun. And i would live fifth grade over again. Those were my glory days.

I think the best invention in the last century is the epidural.

These questions are so thought-provoking! I had to think about them all, and which to choose?
They all really could have each been there own post!

I chose the question about death. I know I am not the norm, but I really would want to know the date and time I would die. For 1, I don't feel like I live my life as fully as I should, and maybe if I knew the time was short, I would.I know, I know... whay not start now anyways??
Also, the fact that I am such a hypochondriac.(sp)? If I knew when my time to go was, then maybe I would spend most of my time being a little more daring ( like your husband in the pictures above! ) I'm such a worrier!

Nice group of questions!

One invention I love is electricity! Being able to see when it's pitch dark outside, drying my thick hair quick with a hair dryer, use a food processor to quicken the knife chopping process to name a few reasons why. So much more you can do because of electricity.

Sometimes with all of the thunderstorms that happen here in MD the power flickers and sometimes goes out, and that brings me back to reality about how dependent I am on it! I am very grateful for it!

My motto is (at least this was my "mission statement" in interior design school) restore things that are beautiful and build things that are worth restoring.

And I really really wish I had a dishwasher.

Although all the questions made me really think-I have to choose the one about a funny or memorable date story.

I was working with Suzanne's mom and her daughter had married someone while her boyfriend was on a mission. She kept wanting to set me up with him when he got home. Well, he came home and to make along story short decided to go out with me after a couple of months. The problem with the timing is that I had found out the day before that I was pregnant from my ex boyfriend (another long story). To make matters worse, I was 26 weeks along. So I told her mom that I wasn't interested in meeting anyone new (my life was over at this point). Anyways, he said he didn't care and still wanted to meet me so I agreed, but with hesitation. I thought 'What kind of guy would want to take out a girl, on a blind date, that was 7 months pregnant?' He must have been wacko, right? Well, I ended up going out with him. We went to see Big Daddy, picked up Brian and Suzanne (who were at his ex-girlfriends house, talk about awkward) and ate at Appleby's. What is so memorable (or funny) is that I married him a year later and here it is 8 years later and we are still together!

What do you think is the greatest invention to come along in your lifetime? Why is it important to you?

The Internet. Without it, I wouldn't have a job and We couldn't waste our time reading blogs and sending e-mails!
