***TAG TWO FROM TERINA***
Rule #1: Remove the blog site at the top of the list below, move all the blog site names up one, and add yourself to the bottom.


What were you doing ten years ago?
I was 20, dating a boy 13 years older than me, working at Galaxy Diner, fighting with my roommates Melanie and Meri, trying not to flunk outta BYU, getting a second tattoo, getting over Mark, hanging with Cindy and her green Mazda, thinking I knew SO MUCH about the world. Wow.... all part of the journey to who I am now. I wouldn't trade it.

What were you doing one year ago?

I was relaxing after our trip to Europe, working feverishly on lovely scrapbook pages, on a creative high, trying to get pregnant, loving naps and the non-responsibility of summer.

Five snacks you enjoy

1. Peanut M&Ms 2. Red grapes with regular pringles 3. Double-stuf Oreos 4. Apples with cheese 5. Popcicles

Five songs you know all the lyrics to:

1. Make a Man Outta You--Disney's Mulan
2.
I Still Believe-- Miss Saigon
3.
Bohemian Rhapsody-- Queen 4. Come What May- Moulin Rouge 5. Complicated- Avril Lavigne

Things you would do if you were a millionaire:

1. Buy a cabin in Bear Lake or in Provo Canyon or in the Tetons. 2. Pay off student loans. 3. Buy my parents a dream home in Nauvoo. 4. Pay off siblings' student loans. 5. Save the rest for traveling.

Five bad habits

1. not enough exercise 2. wasting time on the internet 3. procrastinating 4. eating too much sugar 5. not completing projects

Five things you like to do

1. take photographs 2. sing in good choirs/groups 3. go to markets/festivals/fairs 4. make art 5. take naps

Five favorite toys

1. my Canon 20D 2. My iPod 3. our computer 4. my cell phone 5. puzzles

Where will you be in ten years?

In a farmhouse on at least 10 acres of beautiful green farmland in Missouri... lovingly refurbishing our home a bit at a time, between 3-5 kids, all perfectly mischievious and brilliant, spending time on our porch with our friends and family, having time to really enjoy each other because we don't watch too much t.v., play too many video games, or waste too much time on the computer... I'll be 40, contemplating writing a book or going back to recertify as an art teacher... Joe will be 38, happily finished with all his advanced schooling and working in the job of his dreams. We'll have the bunkhouse finished in the barn, so y'all are invited to come spend a week with us, wading in our creek, fishing in our pond, or just sitting on the porch with us, enjoying the fireflies as the summer nights draw to a close.

Ahhhh......
