More about ME!!

What were you doing 10 years ago? I was meeting my bestest friend, Mindi, during our 4th year Girl's Camp. Getting ready to start Junior year. And basically mooning over my high school love ALL. THE. TIME.

5 years ago? Finding out I was preggo with Natalie. Stressing over what to do with my major seeing as how I would be GIVING BIRTH during my final semester of college (4 years down the drain...I kid, I kid). Loving being at BYU-Idaho and having tons of girl friends in my Elementary Education classes.

5 months ago? President Hinckley died. A case of the blogging blahs. Cowboy's messed it all up AGAIN (and broke Keith's heart). Getting my new (dusty) elliptical.

5 things on my to do list...
1) Catch up on the fricken Quilt along.
2) Clean the bathroom (bleh).
3) Learn how to use my Photoshop Elements 6 (darn you 6!).
4) Get a haircut.
5) Put the kids clean clothes away.

5 Snacks... (guilty or not??)
1) Pretzels and a cheese stick-not
2) Ruffles and french onion dip-guilty
3) MUG root beer (SOOOO good in the summer time!)-guilty
4) flaky pastry!!!!-Um...not?? just kidding! GUILTY AS CHARGED!
5) Toast-undecided

5 millionaire things...
1) Buy me a van and Keith a whatever the heck he wants (he is so fickle I never know what the car of the moment is!).
2) Pay off student loans.
...and that would take all of it! just kidding! LOL, IF we had any left over...
3) Take my Mom to Europe.
4) Spa WEEK with my girlfriends!
5) Buy a modest house, and SAVE the last $200.

3 bad habits...
1) Thumping my head (don't ask).
2) Picking my lips.
3) Stress eating.

5 places I have lived...
1) Grant Pass, Oregon
2) Salem, Oregon
3) Portland, Oregon
4) Cheney, Washington
5) Rexburg, Idaho

5 jobs I have had...
1) Deli girl at the IGA in Cheney
2) Computer lab assistant at BYU-I
3) Assistant Manager at an apartment complex
4) PartyLite Candle Consultant
5) Nighthawk Radiology

5 things people don't know about me...
1) I was in drama when I was younger. I actually had a teeny tiny part in a local college production of The Worst Christmas Pageant Ever AND I have it on tape! I also did a few plays at this local theater in town, and it was SO MUCH FUN. I also tried out for Rescue 911, but I laughed during my audition because I was SO nervous, needless to say I didn't get the part!
2) I used to lift weights, a LOT, during high school, because they offered a class during the hour before school started, and I liked to go to the early, early seminary because that was the ones all my friends went too, and they were all in zero hour classes. So rather than sit around school for an hour, I took weight training.
3) From preschool to 12th grade I went to 11 different schools. We are NOT a military family. 4 schools in 2nd grade alone. I like to blame this on any random pieces of information I may not know. "Presidents? Don't know them, must have missed them in the second grade curriculum..."
4) I like milk, a lot.
5) I really, really wanted to be an Astronaut, but then I heard that you had to have perfect vision, so I settled on being an architect (I LOOOOVE houses), but then I stunk at drafting, so then I settled for an elementary school teacher, but then I got pregnant so I settled for a Bachelors in "University Studies"! Hey, at least I have a Bachelors!

Like this list? Steal it! I did!

so did you end up studying elementary ed at all? And what's all this about thumping your head (sorry, I asked!!!:)

Shannon said...

I did Jenny, I got about 2 semesters from finishing, I needed student teaching and "methods" which is a step before student teaching, kind of like it but still going to class at the college too. And when i can't sleep i lie on my belly and "thump" my head on my pillow, sounds strange but it is something i have done since a tiny tot, it is kind of like when you kick your leg against the bed at night...werid i know!

I can't believe it's been 10 years, that seems crazy. You are the most wonderful best friend ever. I love being able to talk to you about everything. Now, if only we lived closer together...
