So, apparently when you get "Tagged" it means you answer all of the same questions as the person who tagged you. Since my sister thought it was a good idea to tag me on her blog, I will answer her questions. JUST THIS ONCE. I'm supposed to Tag someone else, but I don't really hang with blogging people, so just enjoy this intrusive look into my head.

5 things I was doing 10 years ago:

  • Living in Jerusalem with my family
  • Sophomore year of college
  • Winter trip to Italy with a group of friends
  • My sister Ruthie got married
  • Who knows what else? That was so long ago!

5 things on my to do list:

  • Renew my Passport
  • Finish decorating the nursery
  • Organize my work inbox (I have 3582 emails - I haven't organized it since leaving on maternity leave 5 months ago)
  • Put up baseboards in the kitchen
  • Mop the Floor

5 snacks I enjoy:

  • Brownies
  • Strawberry-Banana-Pineapple Smoothies
  • Carrie's Concoctions
  • Fondue
  • Sorbet

5 places I've lived:

  • Jersualem (Study abroad)
  • Berlin (Mission)
  • Northern VA (Home for the last 3.5 years)
  • Provo/Orem, UT (Home in my heart)

5 things I would do if I became a Billionaire:

  • Pay off our house
  • Pay off my parent's/siblings/in-laws homes
  • Donate to Charity
  • Andy and I would quit our jobs and write the novels we always talk about writing

5 bad habits:

  • Eating too much sugar
  • Putting off exercising until tomorrow
  • Procrastinating
  • Being negative
  • Road Rage (I learned it from Andy)

5 jobs I've had:

  • Cook/Waitress - Ricardo's Mexican Restaurant
  • Media Lab Expert - BYU McKay Building
  • Deli Isle Stocker - Macey's Sack-N'-Save
  • Certification Database Peon and Manager - Novell, Inc.
  • Admin, PM, Account Manager - SBS

5 things people don't know about me:

  • I ran track in high school and won several meets for the 1600, 400, and 4X400. Running was my thing since the rest of my family was amazing at sports and I was just okay.
  • I wish I had been brave enough to try dancing as a child. I always envy dancers. As an adult I have taken clogging, salsa, belly dancing, and ballroom. I wish I had gotten an earlier start.
  • The best pet I ever had was a huge iguana named Ike. I would let him run around my bedroom, and sometimes the whole house. He would climb the bricks on the fireplace and hang from the top of the wall. When I let him play in the grass, he would sometimes escape through the gaps in the chain link, and I still can't figure out how he fit. He was the best pet ever. Just recently my mom told me that she thought he was skeevy and hated when I let him run around the house because they are such big carriers of salmonilla. I cried for a week when we died.
  • I would give anything to have a small cute face with high cheekbones so that I could have a pixie haircut and dark brown hair.
  • I'm terrified of heights. Even step ladders make me very nervous.
