  3. I LOVE quilting — designing them, handstitching them, the works.

  4. I LOVE music. Performing, practicing, listening to it.

  5. I have the world's most amazing kids. Beautiful, brilliant, incredibly kind, and just enough spunk so you don't wonder if there's something wrong with them.

  6. I grew up in St. George. Hot. Sweaty. Horrible St. George. Some people are great there and love the heat and red dirt. I like going back there to appreciate the beauty of the insane colors, but I'll stick to the seasons of Salt Lake.

  7. I like to ramble. Can you tell?

  8. Wooo Whoooo FPOTD [First Post Of The Day]. Seriously I need to get a life…or those pillow for my wife….Happy Wife…Happy Life…Right?

  9. Hi girls!! I am totally jealous of your talent but thankful you are sharing with us all!! My name is Emilee Trias and I live in Washington, Utah….

  10. Mandy Adams American Fork, UT

  11. I'm married to one of your high school buddies, Eli Adams, and we met briefly at his high school reunion this last summer. I also know Brooke's brother Court!

  12. Just to clarify, me and Brooke met briefly at the high school reunion, not me and Eli. Ha ha. That was a terribly written sentence. How embarrassing for me since I'm a sixth grade teacher! This is my sixth year teaching and I love it!

  13. But also speaking of Eli, we're coming up on our 2nd anniversary on the 28th of December! As a side note, he also likes the things you've done on your site!

  14. I am not a creative person at all, but I love crafty things. I'm pretty good at being a copycat and I'm going to steal… I mean borrow, some of your ideas! I'll make sure I give you ladies the credit. Your talent amazes me!

  15. I love coloring! It's a little odd for a grown woman to love coloring, but I do. I have lots of coloring books and crayons (I don't like markers). I'll pull out a book when I'm feeling stressed and just color. It makes everything better!

  16. Brittany Huntington says:

    These are so cute!! I want to win something!!!

  17. Kimber Gray, Gilbert Arizona–Love the pillows and everything you have done so far. Impressive!!

  33. #5: I once drank root beer out of a cowboy boot from DI just to get tickets to the REO Speedwagon concert. Totally disgusting…totally worth it! (Justi Lundeberg)

  34. #6: I've been to a few great concerts but my favorite, hands down, was Neil Diamond. I'm pretty sure when he sang "Forever In Blue Jeans", he was singing it to me. Also, I have to admit that during "Comin' to America", I shed a few tears. Neil and I are pretty good friends. (Justi Lundeberg)

  35. Kristy DeGraaf, Cedar City UT

  36. I think in music…long story, but I'm always humming little ditty's or making silly songs up to sing to my kids.

  37. I'm due to have baby #3 in two weeks…getting ancy!

  38. I run a daycare out of my home. Everyone thinks I'm crazy and maybe I am, but I love being home with my kiddos and it has been such a learning experience. However it does present a real decorating challenge :)

  39. Besides Cedar City, where I have lived for a total of 7 years or so (but not all in a row), I've never lived in one place more than 3 years.

  40. I want to get a degree in music someday and would also love to learn to take better pictures.
