Tag, I'm It!

Thanks to my sweet friend Brandy, I have been tagged. Which means I will answer some questions about myself and hopefully you will enjoy getting to know me a little better! Then, I tag 5 people to do the same!
Here goes......

What was I doing 10 years ago......
I was at Troy State enjoying college life...a little (ok, A LOT) too much. At that point, I still didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. All I knew was that I loved college (when I didn't have class ;D), and I was developing friendships with some of the most wonderful girls in the world. I was an Alpha Gam and was so proud to be a part of such a great sorority.
I learned a lot during college. I did things that helped me grow, and I did a lot of things I wish I hadn't. All in all, it was a huge learning and growth experience for me. I learned a lot that I hope will help me to raise my boys with purpose so that they won't make the same mistakes I made. :)

5 Things on my to-do list today......
I'm going to change this to TOMORROW since it's so late.
1.Continue to work on getting my house in order. I feel like the harder I work, the worse it gets!
2.Order Asher's birthday cake. Nothing like waiting 'til the last minute. His birthday is Saturday!
3.Get all my laundry put away.
4.Get the office cleaned. Fun, huh?
5.Drink my hot water with lemon. Cleansing the liver never tasted so good!

5 Snacks I enjoy......
1.Blue Bell ice cream....YUMMY!!!
2.Cheese Dip
4.Strawberry/Lime slush from Sonic

5 Things I would do if I were a billionaire.....
1.Give money to the greatest church in the world...Church of the Highlands. I know it would be put to good use.
2.Give to every ministry that I've ever wanted to give to.
3.Pay off all our debt, including our home.
4.Pay off the homes of both mine and Channing's parents and buy our kids' first homes (can all this count as 1 thing?).
5.INVEST!!! I would want to leave money for the generations to come.

5 Bad habits.......
1.Procrastination! (Brandy, I'm with you here)
2.Not returning calls. I am HORRIBLE at this. If I haven't returned your call...please forgive me!!! I am trying to get better.
3.Not putting things away when I'm done using them. (It just creates mess for me later).
4.Eating candy (I will conquer this!!! "From Belly Fat to Belly Flat" is going to help me!).
5.Saying, "You're driving me bananas!" to my boys (I HAVE GOT TO stop saying that!).

5 Places I've lived......
1.Ozark, AL
2.Troy, AL
3.Marietta, GA
4.Birmingham, AL (actually a suburb of B'ham)
5.That's pretty much it. Channing and I spend a good bit of time at Lake Martin in Alexander City. Does that count?

5 Jobs I've had......
1.I worked at a concession stand in HS. I worked during the baseball games and ate LOTS of candy!
2.In college, I worked for and helped coordinate schedules for intramural sports. It was lots of fun and kept me busy. I miss that job sometimes.
3.I taught kindergarten in Troy for a teacher who was on maternity leave. I LOVED it!!! I love the little bitties! I would love to teach again if I could teach the little bitties.
4.Substitute teacher (I was groped by a third grader...I'm not kidding).
5.Third Grade teacher (lots of work, but I miss my kiddos. I hate we live so far away. I would love to have them come back to my class to visit me. :( )
I'll add my next two jobs too:
6. Office manager in Channing's chiropractic office. It's been keeping me busy on and off for 4 1/2 years.
7. MOMMY. By far the greatest job EVER! It has its challenges, but the rewards far exceed any challenge I may face. Through being a mommy, God has shown me how much He must love me. And I know He must love me even more than I love my boys. It's a hard concept to grasp.

TAG!Now YOU are it......

So fun! It is great to find out new info on friends! I will get to work on mine within the next few days!


Brandy said...

Interesting! Maybe we will see each other sometime when in Ozark! Robby is leaving soon to go overseas for 2 years-it would be nice if we could all get together one weekend before he leaves!
I am going to have to check out Church of the Highlands sometime-there is one here in Auburn.

I had no idea he was going overseas for 2 years! Where have I been?! I would love to see him (and everyone else) before he goes. How sad! When does he leave???
As for Church of the Highlands, you SHOULD check it out. I'm sure you'll love it just as much as the rest of us do!!!
I've wanted to visit the Auburn campus but haven't been able to make it there yet. I have some friends who helped with the launch of that campus.
Check it out...I think you'll be glad you did! Oh, and if you do check it out, let me know what you think. :):)

LeAnne said...

This is so cute! And oh didn't we all do things at college that we now wish we hadn't. I am working on not telling my little ones that they are making me NUTS! Two days ago I was doing Kylee Anne's hair and she said "Mommy, you are making me NUTS!" OOPS!!

Hillary Dunham said...

Dang it. I was reading through all that thinking, "maybe she won't ask me to do this"....
Alright. I'm up there on procrastination, but I'll get it done for ya'!

Brandy said...

Robby is leaving around June or July.I am going to try to call Mandy this weekend and see if she has a good weekend that we could all plan to get together! I will let you know the details as I get them.I think we may try Church of the Highlands on Sunday-I will let you know how it goes. We currently attend First Baptist Opelika, but we are not members.

Donna said...

Oh no- I just saw this tonight- my name is up there! I will try to get to this soon- it's neat to see different stuff about people- like how could someone tiny like you like candy?
