About Me

Bountiful, Utah
We are the Ta'atiti family. I started this blog back in 2008. I kinda forgot about it for a long time and just recently decided to pick it up again. My main motivations behind this blog is to document my weight loss journey through the Take Shape For Life program as well as document significant events for my kids - Sina and Miracle. Hopefully they will find value in these posts and maybe even learn from some of my life lessons.

7 things people may not know about me.....

So this sounded kind of fun to do...thanks for the tag Cine! It gives me an excuse to get on here and post a blog anyway.....

1) One thing people may not know about me is that I was born in Germany and lived there until I was 10 years old with the exception of 3 years between ages 2 and 5 when I lived in Ft. Lewis, Washington. I went to Wetzel Elementary and every year we would attend a live theater play so I got to watch Puss n' Boots and James and the Giant Peach. So because of that I love live theater shows!(watching it, not me acting)

2) I have a birth mark almost the size of a dime on my right hip (is that giving away too much?)

3) Most people don't know that I'm an 8th Chinese. My maternal great grandfather was from Hong Kong - his name was Ah Mu. He lived in Pesega, Samoa for a long time and though he wasn't always a member of the LDS church, he loved and supported the church and it's leaders for many years.

4) I skipped kindgergarten when I was 5 and went straight to 1st grade because my mom didn't want me to be behind in school. My late September birthday put me a year behind everyone else, but with the skip I was right on track. (okay, so that was kinda lame but i'm running out of interesting things)

5) My middle name is Camilla after Camilla Kimball who was Prophet Spencer W. Kimball's wife. My mom joined the LDS church in the 70's and loved Pres. Kimball.

6) Unlike Francine, I have a huge sweet tooth, which is NOT a good thing considering diabetes runs in my family.

7) Finally, one thing most people probably don't know about me is that I'm ambidextrous (spelling?) only in that I use my left to write, eat, play pool, and brush my teeth, but pretty much everything else, from shooting a basketball to swinging a baseball bat I do with my right hand. Go figure.

So that's all folks. Good thing too cause' I was running out of things to write. I tag....well, i don't have anyone to tag, but as soon as I can I'll tag someone!!
