Old School

Jennifer from Momma Made it Look Easy told me about a couple bloggers that are bringing back the meme.  Elaine and Heather will throw out monthly questions for you to answer.

1. What were you doing 10 years ago?

March 2003?  I was in the process of eradicating myself from a really bad relationship with a 40 Year Old Greek Virgin.  I was also living on my own for the first time in my life and working for a collection agency. I was looking forward to being single for a while but hopeful that Mr. Right was out there somewhere.

2. What 5 Things are on your To Do List?

Buy my daughter a cake and a birthday present.
Plan an Easter Egg Hunt for all 90 Kindergarteners with my friend Jill.
Go to Dallas for Spring Break.
Plan a Tea Party for my pregnant friend Jennifer.
Buy new jeans.

3. What 5 snacks do you enjoy?

Ice Cream
Raw Macadamia Nuts
Cheese's made from FRUIT

4. Name some things you would do if you were a millionaire.

If I was a millionaire, I would buy a little house that needed some work and I'd take all of the cool ideas I've pinned on Pinterest and turn it into the most amazing house.  And I'd go to Sedona on vacation all by myself. 
5. Name some places you have lived.

I was born in Denver but moved to a little cow town called Greeley when i was 4.  I briefly lived on a 660 acre cattle ranch and I still need to blog about that.   I returned to Denver when I was 30 which was a good thing because my future husband was here.  We lived in UTAH for 4 years.  A hardship tour....and now we're back home in Denver.

6. Name some bad habits you have.

I have a bad habit of not folding or putting away....socks.  They live on my bed.  I have a really bad habit of hiding candy from my family. iKeith thinks I have a bad habit of leaving pans soaking in the sink. 

7. Name some jobs you have had

My very first job was the summer of my 16th year when I painted gas meters for Greeley Gas Co.  Me and two gals who became great friends walked all over Greeley, from house to house...painting the meters.  I was skinny and tan when the summer was over.   On my 18th birthday, I began my auto parts career.  I started as a parts delivery driver and 5 years later I managed the store.  I've also worked as a manager of an auto repair shop and a gas station.  Now, I have the best job in the world....MOM and WIFE.

My friend Mimi tagged me.  How old school is that?  I decided to oblige her but I'm not tagging anyone.  Feel free to take the questions and answer them yourself.  
  1. Display the award logo on your blog. What logo?
  2. Link back to the person(s) who nominated you. Okey Dokey
  3. State 7 things about yourself. 
  4. Nominate 15 bloggers for this award. For Real?
  5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination by linking to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by pingback. 
Here goes: Seven things about me right now:
1. I can not have ice cream in my freezer or I will eat it.  All of it.
2. Mallory's 6th birthday is in 9 days and I didn't plan a party this year.  I'm regretting it.  :(
3.  I bought an exercise ball and my husband stole it from me to sit on at his desk. Now my ball smells like balls
4. I can't stop volunteering for PTA.  I think I might have volunteered to be the president. 
5. I love corndogs
6. I'm watching Days while I type this and I wish my name was Chole Lane.
7. My husband just commented on my blog!!!!!  


  1. My husband never comments on my blog! He's not a cool kid I guess.
    Thanks for doing my taggy thingy!
    90 kids and an egg hunt. I'd die.

  2. what a cool post and 10 yrs ago today i was having a rough time but loving life

  3. My husband very rarely leaves a comment on my blog but he reads and comments to me about it all the time. We really need to find someone to give us a million dollars. I could definitely put it to good use :)

  4. We both put wine as a snack, i love that. Stopping by from OSB.

  5. I think I'd rather tackle the 90 kindergartners than go shopping for jeans!

  6. Laughing over the exercise ball :) At least he comments on your blog, mine may have done so once...maybe

  7. I read easter egg hunt and my mind went to cadbury cream eggs. I want.

  8. I'm so glad you did this, and now I wish I could erase Jen's cadbury cream egg comment from my mind.

  9. I love that you did two memes. I love ice cream too.

  10. Your ball smells like balls... I died laughing.
    My husband would never comment on my blog. He actually calls me to tell me to respond to someone on facebook or email. I have to log into his account comment, but not comment like me, comment like him. I should have known I mean shoot I did his term papers in high school...

  11. In case you are wondering I got an A- on his term paper way back when... AND the next year the teacher told me I should just update the references & materials and submit it as my own. His words were "you might as well get credit for all the work you did in the first place!" Suhhhweeet right!

  12. Ahh I miss the days of tan & skinny, I've been on the hardship tour myself-glad you came out on the other side.


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
