Nie Nie: on being Proud

I can sincerely come up with thousands of reasons why I am proud. 
I decided I'd come up with a few vital reasons to share with you,
and not in any particular order either.
I looked up other words that mean "proud",
 and words like arrogant, conceited, puffed-up, pompous, 
self-righteous and big-headed came up. 
I hope I don’t come off that way…but if I do, I still am proud of this list.

*I am proud to say I married the most amazing man on the planet.

*I am proud that he is so handsome.
* I am proud to be an American.

*I am proud that Christian can cut my hair, no charge!
And since I don’t have any money it works out really great, 
because I can find other ways to pay him.
*I am proud that after high school I fell in love and got married
*I am proud that I was born in such a large family and named after my father.
*I am proud that I come from Utah.
I am proud that I am a member of 
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
* I am proud of my rich pioneer heritage.
*I am proud to say that once I was a ski instructor at Sundance Resort in Utah.
*I am proud that I have never had a taste of any alcoholic beverage, 
never puffed tobacco, (or anything of the like), or tried drugs.
*I am proud to say I don’t own a R-rated movie- or watch them, for that matter.

*I am proud that I had three children before turning the ripe old age of 23. 
*I am proud and confident to say that Christian
 adores me for every reason possible.
*I am proud of my choice to put off school to have offspring. ;)
*I am proud that my father is a Representative in the legislature in Utah.
*I am proud that my family thrives on a vegetarian diet.
*I am proud of my colorful walls in my house.
*I am proud that all five of my brothers and one sister went 
on missions for The Church and I currently have one sister serving in England.
*I am proud of my in-laws for having eleven children
 who are all excellent citizens.
*I am proud to say my favorite holiday is Halloween.
*I am proud of the whole wheat pizza I make every Saturday night for my family.

To conclude, I can directly say: I am proud of this list.
