What were you doing 10 years ago?

Marrying the man who would become the Father to my three daughters. (I can’t say it was a waste of time because I wouldn’t trade them for anything!). Working for a Title Insurance Company, honing my typing skills to over 100 WPM (It wasn’t exciting). Buying my FIRST BRAND NEW CAR… now that was exciting.

What I was doing 5 years ago:

On-going remodel of our house, managing our rental, getting good at being a SAHM… planning my children’s educational future, holding my breath as my 1 year old attempted the monkey bars over and over and over again. Going to Nursing school.

One year ago:

Getting Married for the second time… this time to the RIGHT man. 🙂 Becoming a family of 7!!!! Taking care of my mother who was diagnosed with ALS. Working on my Real Estate License.


Helped Hubby pack for his trip to China. Planning, shopping and cleaning for K3’s Party this weekend. Carrying a cage with 5 mice to school so the kiddos could share them during show and tell… I was mobbed in the hall and wasn’t sure I’d make it out alive.


Took Hubby to the airport… received a bragging email about how he was sitting in the first seat in FIRST CLASS… sipping some cocktails while I juggled getting the crew to school. Bought 3 boxes of Enjoy Life Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies for K3 to share with her class tomorrow (They won’t let me bring home-made treats!).

Five Snacks You Enjoy

Cold, Green Grapes… the big, fat, juicy ones
Swiss cheese and crusty bread (mmmm… with wine.)
Strawberries with chocolate or whip cream
Sliced bananas with Peanut Butter
Hot Cocoa and Buttery Toast

5 things I would do if I had $100 Million:

Finally locate the correct materials for that nifty product we are trying to figure out

Invest for the future of my Children and Grandchildren

Five Bad Habits

Procrastinating (YES!!!! I am so bad about it!)
Coffee… I just can’t give it up.
Being INDECISIVE… I went to school to teach… then to be a nurse… then I was a photographer… then I work as an admin… then I went to school for Real Estate… Really I just want to be a Mom and Wife.
Being Short Fused… sometimes I let the little things pile up and then I have a short fuse for things I should just ignore… working on it!
Talking too much/too loud. Nuff said.

Five Things You Like To Do

Read! … once again I am keeping Jenefur’s answer here.
Scrapbooking, sewing, crafting (working on some fabulous new aprons now!)
Good Friends

Five Things You Would Never Wear Again:

A bikini… as much as hubby thinks I will… I can assure you I won’t.
That hideous Bridesmaid dress from my sister’s wedding… instead of five months pregnant it made me look like a plum.
Patterned Capris… seriously I had a couple pair with little flowers and gingham checks… I think they probably were meant for ladies MUCH older than I.
Stirrup Pants.
Any undies that aren’t thongs… I have learned that underwear lines are death!

Five Favorite Toys
My Little Pony
Light Brite
Moon Sand
Easy Bake Oven

I don’t like to tag… ya’ll never do it anyway. Lol.

  1. 1. Nothing like big, cold grapes!
    2. Coffee really isn’t a bad habit…smoking would be a bad habit!
    3. Moon sand is really cool!

  2. Agreed… Smoking would be a VERY bad habit. Ick.

    Moon Sand rocks… and I don’t even mind the mess… it’s so easy to vacuum up after since it isn’t wet!

    Mmmmm. I could use some grapes now. Why oh why do they have to be $3 a pound!!!!!
