All you ever wanted to know

So, Kerri at Colored With Memories tagged me to do this meme, and although I typically don't like to go on and on about myself....well, I'm going to. :) Feel free to skip right past this, I'm afraid it won't be too exciting.


4 things I was doing 10 years ago:


1. Wow....1998. Let's see, I was living in Dallas, going to Bible school.

2. I was working at a restaurant as a hostess/cocktail waitress in downtown Dallas. I was terrible at both, but was especially inept at the whole cocktail waitressing thing. Let's just say I am still scarred from the time that I dropped a glass of wine, and I watched in slow motion as it reached out its liquid tentacles toward my unsuspecting customer. Fortunately it just missed her, but oh, the horror.

3. I was busy spending more money than I was earning...on school, going out to eat way too much, and making other stupid and reckless purchases of junk that I didn't need. Not to mention Starbucks. I'm embarrassed to admit how much I used to spend at Starbucks monthly.

4. I was also paid by a church in Plano to play the piano for their services every week. It was 45 minutes away, but the money was a huge blessing at that time in my life.


3 things I was doing 5 years ago:


1. We were getting ready to celebrate our first-year anniversary on June 1.

2. I had a job as an office manager for a small office, which in hindsight was a terrible position for me because I hate conflict and I hate dealing with irate people. I would wake up every morning with a sense of dread because it so messed with my peace-loving nature. Fortunately I had a good boss who recognized this and moved me to a new position shortly after. So, no more manager jobs for me.

3. We were planning a vacation to Puerto Vallarta. Oh, the good old days when we actually traveled!


4 things I did yesterday:


1. Dusted.

2. Laundry.

3. Exercised.

4. Read way too many blogs.


4 shows I love to watch:

1. The Office

2. American Idol

3. Anything on Food Network that involves a contest of wedding cake decorating.

4. Seinfeld.


4 things I love to do:


1. Take a nap while it's raining.

2. Go on a date with my hubby. (Rare, but so special when it happens!)

3. Read....love getting lost in a book.

4. Sing silly made-up songs with Savannah. I love it when she picks up on the silliness and sings it right along with me.

So I think I'm supposed to tag some other people, but I'm going to skip that part. Feel free to do this meme if it sounds good to you!

Thanks for playing along!

It was fun getting to know you...

I'm curious to know where you went to Bible school in Dallas.
