I was tagged...

I was tagged by Gillian. Since I've never been tagged before, this is kind of exciting!

Here are the instructions:
1. Answer the following questions.
2. Tag 5 people by leaving a comment on their blog letting them know they have been tagged, and to view your blog for the instructions.

10 years ago:
I was going to beauty school in Provo, Utah. I had a missionary, but only for fun...I wasn't serious about him! :D

5 things on my to-do list today:
--Clean kitchen
--LAUNDRY (Yuck!)
--Exercise (I'm getting my elliptical today! Yay!)
--Clean bathrooms (Yuck also, but not as much as laundry)
--Read to Nathan (my favorite part of the day)

Things I would do if I was suddenly a billionaire:
Pay off my mortgage, cars, and student loans, etc. Do the same for my parents (including in-laws), brothers & sisters (including in-laws). Make a huge donation toward finding a cure for Autism, visit...oh, so many places, like England, Scotland, Ireland, Egypt, S. Korea, Brazil, Alaska...where would it end? I would have to agree with Gillian; I'd buy a really nice digital camera (Olympus, of course...) and travel so I could take tons of pictures! Then, I'd come home and DIGISCRAP!!!

3 of my bad habits:
--Washing the laundry, and then not folding it, leaving it in a heap or in the dryer!
--Getting way too focused on something that I'm working on that I become unaware that people are trying to talk to me (this happens at work sometimes, and probably all-too-often with Derik...sorry babe!)
--Leaving cupboard doors open behind myself: Derik says he can tell where I've been, just by walking through the kitchen! (I've gotten MUCH better since we've had Nathan though)

Places I've Lived:
-Burley, Idaho
-Provo, Utah
-Pocatello, Idaho
-Rexburg, Idaho
-Mesa, Arizona
-Phoenix, Arizona (they are definately two different places!)

Jobs I've had:
-Secretary for attorney's office (okay, my dad ;D)
-Cashier, etc. at Ace Hardware
-Front Desk person at Best Western
-Hair Stylist in Provo
-Insurance processor at Farm Bureau
-Dental assistant/front desk at Orthodontist's office
-Optometric Technician for Dr. Archibald/Thueson
-Stay-at-home-mom (and loving it!)

Things most people don't know about me:
-I LOVE water (not to drink, but to play in!)I think I was a fish in another life!
-I've always wanted to be the singing voice for an animated film.
-I love sushi.
-I have self-diagnosed O.C.D.
-I have a "bubble". This means that I don't like up-close contact with people that I'm not 10,000% comfortable with. You can stand NEXT to me, but don't stand immediately in front of or behind freaks me out, and I might just shove you out of my way.

I tag...Jenny, Gina, Stephanie, Aunt LeAnn, & Britni!

Loved reading about you! So fun. And you have a cute new banner every time I visit! I only wish I could be so creative! :)

Bean said...

Yay! I am so excited that you did it! You crack me up with the whole OCD thing. I love it!

Jennifer said...

I found your blogspot through Holly's. I just wanted to comment about how cute your banner and paper is. I also read that you are into digital scrapbooking. I am trying to decide if it is for me. Can you tell me where you get your stuff (for example the cute stuff on this blog), are you buying any of it or do you just find the freebie stuff.

P.S. Are you teaching any adoption classes?
