Meme
How do you pronounce that anyway? Is it like me me - with the long e sound? Or is it something else? Hmm... anyway, here's a meme for ya! Sorry it took me so long to get done Eve :)

INSTRUCTIONS: Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot, like so.
1) Shelli’s Sentiments
2) CuriosityKiller
3) Doggy Mama
4) Eve
5) Melissa
Next select five people to tag: (if you haven’t done it already) I haven't been able to catch up on all of your blogs yet... so, if you've already done this, just leave the link to the meme in the comments so that I can come and visit! But, I'm gonna tag:
I Love Flip Flops
4 B's in a Pod
Inside Justine's Mind
So Grateful to be Mormon
Muskadillo Dreaming

What were you doing 10 years ago?
I had just graduated from Ricks College (it was still Ricks back then...) and I was trying to decide what to do with my life. I had met Hubby and we were dating. I really liked him, but wasn't sure where it all was going. I was torn between more schooling and going on a mission that winter. I decided on the mission, but then things got serious with hubby and we got engaged instead. :)

What were you doing 1 year ago?
One year ago we were in Hermiston, OR. Hubby had just switched jobs. We were sure this new job would be fantastic for us all. Unfortunately, their promise of regular work hours and a 5 day week were broken fairly quickly. He was working 12 hour days (plus an hour commute on each end) 6 days a week. It was a miserable experience for us all.


Five snacks you enjoy:

  • Peanut M&M's
  • Wintergreen Lifesavers
  • Almost any kind of fresh fruit
  • Granola bars
  • Hummus - my new favorite dip!
Five songs that you know all the lyrics:
Hmmm... yikes... um...

  • "Unwritten" by: Natasha Bedingfield
  • "If I Had a Million Dollars" by: BNL
  • "Accidentally in Love" by: Counting Crows
  • "Mr. Mom" by: Lonestar
  • "Who Says You Can't Go Home" by: Bon Jovi and Jennifer Nettles

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:

  • Pay off all debts of myself and my family
  • Buy my dream home
  • See the world - so many things I want to see and do!!
  • Chefs, maids, personal assistants... you name it! :)
  • Donate where ever I thought I could help

Five bad habits:

  • Procrastinate - although, I admit to working better under pressure...
  • Spending too much time on the computer
  • I get out a bottle of water, drink half of it and then forget where I've set it. I do this all the time...
  • Reading - I know that sounds weird, but I get completely absorbed into whatever I'm reading and I tend to let everything around me fall apart... so, it's a good/bad thing
  • Not getting enough sleep - I'm always tired the next day, but that doesn't stop me... sigh... someday I'll learn, right?

Five things you like doing:

  • Listening to music
  • Visiting new places
  • Playing with the kids
  • Going out with hubby
  • Reading... see bad habits above :)

Five things you would never wear again:

  • Leggings
  • Spike heels
  • tapered or peg legged pants
  • My hair in such a fashion that it looks like I could fly... y'all know what I'm talking about
  • Two pairs of socks at the same time... sigh... guilty as charged...

Five favorite toys:

  • My camera
  • The computer - not that it's all that fancy, I just enjoy it :)
  • My new van
  • My debit card
  • GPS

So, there you have it! Oh, and Happy Mothers Day to all you AWESOME moms out there! Hope your day is fabulous!

melissa: funny how i am telling you how to say meme but you were the second person to ever meme/tag me when i first started my blog a smidgen over a month ago.

i am still totally having fun with this blog thing. it is such an awesome advanced journal with bonus features (i.e., bloggy commentators and validators).

chow baby, kathleen :)

ps. i plan to answer your tag/meme, but not today.

wynne said...

erm...(scratching head stupidly)...you "tagged" me. Um, what does that mean? (stares off into space, drooling) Anyone have a spare frontal lobe I could use? what am I supposed to do now?

Melissa said...

Wynne - if you WANT to, you can copy the questions and lists and then put your own answers in there... don't worry about it if you don't want to :) Just a fun way to get to know you

wynne said...

Thanks. You know, I've really been wondering what a "meme" was. Now I can find out firsthand.

(Do I have to tell the truth, though? I mean...do you really want to know me, or are you more interested in what my mind can spit out?)

Jamie J said...

Melissa said...

Wynne - hmmm... I would love to know the real you, like Kathleen said, but I'm kinda torn here. You see, I love reading your blog cause it makes me laugh... so ya know, go ahead and throw some funnies in there too :D

Jamie - there's no such thing as late in the bloggy world :) I'll come read it today!
