I was tagged

by my friend Leigh Ann. This one was fun!

What was I doing 10 years ago:
I was starting Columbia Bible College after taking a year off and transferring from Anderson College. I also was working for TCBY (one of my favorite jobs to this day) and had just started seeing CJ. One of my very best brother-friends used to joke that I wasn't spoken for, I was "mumbled" for because CJ and I didn't date traditionally. We didn't believe in spending all of our time with just each other and only spent time alone with each other when we knew we were going to marry.

What was I doing 5 years ago:
CJ and I had just moved to Birmingham, AL to start Bumper Man. We only knew 2 people there and we lived in a really nice apartment complex with a pool and a gym. We were really blessed to be able to take over someone's lease so we got a really good deal on it. Otherwise, we would not have been able to afford it. That was the same time CJ asked me to come home and be a stay-at-home wife. I was really bad at it at first and went to back work part-time in January. We fully intended to make Birmingham our home for the long haul until we got pregnant the next year.

What was I doing 1 year ago:
Last year was a tumultuous year for our family. We had our share of life and death. We had just bought our Owner Builder Network franchise and had our 3rd baby by c-section. My grandfather died on my birthday and my grandmother 6 months later (both of my mom's parents). My younger cousin died in January.

What I did yesterday:
I took the boys to the pumpkin patch with the help of my Me-Ma and then to Burger King. After nap time, we went to Wal-Mart for some diapers and to look at paint colors.

5 snacks that I love:
Nutella on graham crackers; Nilla wafers with p-nut butter; Frappaccinos; Lay's Salt and Vinegar potato chips; tortilla chips with shredded cheese melted on top

If I won 100 million what are 5 things I'd do:
Tithe; pay off ALL of our debt (mine and my parent's); invest; Have a standing once-a-month day at the day spa for head to toe treatment; pay for all of my girlfriends yearly girls' trips

5 locations I'd love to visit:
Greece; The Grand Canyon; Maine in the fall; a remote tropical island; Summerville

5 tv shows I like to watch: (only 5!?)
Heroes; Bionic Woman; Life; Cosby Show; Dirty Sexy Money (although I think I may get bored with this one)

5 things I hate to do:
Dust; wash dishes; run; clean up vomit (it makes me literally gag); change bed sheets

5 biggest joys at the moment:
Quiet nights; working out; Decluttering/ simplifying our lives; Date night with CJ; Being with the girls

Great list! I agree with the Nutella! I love a peanut butter and nutella sandwich - also nutella on ANYTHING is wonderful (maybe not steak and chicken).
