Well, we are back from a mini-vacation. We went visiting my folks. We also went to the Toledo Zoo (it is fabulous) and to Shipshewanna on a small shopping trip. You will all be disappointed when I share that I only bought 1 books at the quilt shops there (thanks to Nicole for her recent review of said book). Can you believe that? I know, I was dissappointed myself. Anyway, back to my blogging business. . .

I mentioned that I was tagged recently by Dawn and by Karen. So, here goes. . .

5 Things Meme~~~~

The Rules:Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1. What I was doing 10 years ago:

I was in college on summer break. I stayed on campus that particular summer to work as an orientation mentor for new freshmen. I also had my first real crush/boyfriend that summer. It was a fun summer full of college drama.

2. What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):

`1. Make breakfast

`2. Do laundry

`3. Finish quilt

`4. Supervise buddy outside

`5. Go to open sew for a lesson on stippling

3. Snacks I enjoy:

  • Starbucks Mocha Fraps and Chai Fraps

  • ice cream

  • Reese's cups

  • the list could go on and on

4. Things I would do if I was a billionaire:

  • set aside money for Brady to go to college

  • get a larger house

  • move my folks closer

  • buy my husband a boat

  • give some scholarships to kids I teach

5. Places I have lived:

  • Midwest

6. Jobs I have had:

  • shoe girl for Ralph Lauren Polo store

  • GNC sales girl

  • CMU orientation mentor

  • teacher

I openly tag anyone willing to reply. I know, I am a skunk. :) But, I just tagged people and my audience is limited. I don't want to burn anyone from coming back! Just so you know, I like being tag away, ya'll.
