life is good....

I received a tag from 2 beautiful ladies Kristen and Marian! If you don’t already follow them you should! I love these sweet gals!

What were you doing 10 years ago?
Well, I was 16 and in my sophomore year of high school. I was so pumped to get my drivers license. My parents, for some odd reason, gave me their newer Tahoe as my first car. I drove it like a bad outta hell cuz I was cool like that…..Until I got pulled over and was given a ticket for reckless driving. My Mom took me to court and I cried and the judge dropped the ticket under the condition that I attend driving class…..awesome. Also when I was 16 I was working at a daycare in an infant room. My dream at the time. I love babies, can’t wait to have one of my own. If I could get paid what I make now to work there I still would. I loved that job. I was hanging out with all my besties back then too. We had a tight group of about 8 girls. We did practically everything together. I am only close to two of these girls these days. All of us are in touch with at least 2-3 girls from the group so I still get to hear about everyone.


What are 5 things on your to-do list today?
1. Pretend to work
2. Blog
3. Chow down on my yummy lunch, leftovers from last night. Chicken, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole, yum-o!
4. Leave work early to go home and take a nap
(i stayed up way too late last night)
5. Watch GLEE and eat a meatloaf dinner (Billy is a master chef these days), cuddle with gus and B (just found out GLEE isn't on tonight....night kinda ruined now....stoooopid world series!)

my life revolves around food and sleep & my handsome fiancé and our baby G.

5 Snacks you enjoy?
1. BBQ chips
2. Sour cream and onion chips
3. Cheese
4. Chicken in a Biskit crackers
5. Gummy Bears

I shouldn’t be allowed to have snacks. Thankfully I don’t eat them often. I need to just stop buying chips at the store. I used to eat healthy and lately I’ve been very careless. I need to snap out of this and get back to my old ways.

5 places you have lived?
1. Sioux Falls, South Dakota
2. Sioux City, Iowa
3. Moved back to Sioux Falls, South Dakota (different house)
4. Hartford, South Dakota – my brother, sister and I had to live with my Grandparents for a while. It was fun but so hard to be away from our parents and adjust to a totally different style of living.
5. Apple Valley, Minnesota – I lived with my parents until I was 18 and then I bought a townhouse a couple miles away, still living there today. Love my home and I love being so close to my parents.

5 things you would do if you were a billionaire?
1. Pay off all my debt and my loved ones debt.
2. Buy a couple humungo homes and of course get my family members/friends all their own homes.
3. Go on lavish vacations all over the world with my fiancé.
4. Save and invest.
5. Donate.
6. Shop to my hearts content :) (I know that was 6 but I had to add it)

I tag anyone who wants to play along!

i am getting close to my 100th post.
i am thinking a giveaway is in order but i have NO IDEA what to giveaway.

Doll, I hate to break it to you, but Glee isn't on again until November :( I never thought I'd say this, but STUPID WORLD SERIES!

Ashley said...

So cute! It's nice to learn more about you. Have a great day "pretending" to work. :)

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

Your hair is gorgeous both ways! But I'm with you, I miss my long hair so much, I don't know what I was thinking.

I'm a big snacker, too. You sound like you have a salty tooth rather than a sweet tooth...much like me!

Kentucky Blonde said...

I eat wayyy too many chips too! Or peanut butter crackers. I just love them! :)

Lauren said...

So sad there isn't a new Glee tonight!

Loved reading this, love!

Marian said...

Lovely lady...I love youuuu moreee;) (yeah, i'm starting THAT game)

Ummm...grean bean casserole....JUST MY FAVORITE THING EVER!!

And I hate to be the barer (I don't think i spelled that right) of bad news, but I don't think Glee is on tonight. TEAR!! because of the World Series...sigh. But hey, better knowing now then getting pumped and finding out at the last moment, right:)

Kelly said...

Omigosh, I got pulled too over when I was 15-- without my DL and with two friends in the car, going 10mph over the speed limit :-S I was fined $150 and had my DL taken away until I was 16. My parents took me to court and the judge knew my parents and asked if they wanted me to go first to get it out of the way, but they said NO and made me stay to see ALL of the scary people who make mistakes! I cried the whole time! Haha :-) Hope you're having a great (dreary) Minnesotan day!

Blicious said...

yay-100!!! cant wait for a giveaway! ;)

Jax said...

Ooh fun! I might do this later! :) And I actually dated a guy in Sioux Falls for a little bit! I traveled up there once! So funny! We went to some bar that had dancing AND an arcade. I kinda thought it was awesome. :) And it I was a billionare, I too would pay off allll my debt number one. Your story about driving when you were 16 was adorable.. I used to drive like a crazy person too...til I got in a wreck...with a curb. Sheesh. Have a great day!!! XOXO!

Ela said...
