A Meme

What I was doing 10 years ago:

I was finishing up my junior year of college, living in the yellow Prospect house in Fort Collins, CO with my 5 other roommates, dating Jason. That was such a fun year!!!!

5 snacks I enjoy:

1. Cookies
2. Cheese & Crackers
3. Apples & Peanut Butter
4. Minneolas!
5. Ice Cream

5 Jobs I've had:

Gib's Bagels - A bagel shop in Ft. Collins where I worked for the summer when I stayed at school for a class. It was a boring job, really early hours and not great pay, but I got to bike to work and see some really beautiful sunrises, and take home yummy bagels.

Fraiser Meadows Manor in Boulder, CO - A server in the dining hall at this assisted living facility...I really liked this job...once again, early hours, but I worked with some really fun people and I loved all the old people, especially this one guy who was so nice to me even when I spilled coffee in his lap.

The Teen Parenting Center at my old high school - basically day care, didn't like this job all that much. I worked there for just a couple months after I graduated college and before we got married.

Receptionist at First Presbyterian Church, Boulder - I liked this job. I started a couple days after we got back from our honeymoon, and it was 4 days a week, which was great.

Admin for the Pastoral Care/Counseling ministry at First Pres...I worked with some AWESOME people here and that's what made the job so good.

And of course, now, a mom....which is what I've always wanted to be. :-) My mom said that when I was in Kindergarten I said that when I grew up I either wanted to be a babysitter or a mom. I never enjoyed babysitting all that much, but I sure do love being a mom, although it's harder than anything I've ever done, it's by far the most wonderful and rewarding.

5 Habits:

1. I pick my cuticles really bad, especially when I'm stressed or when it's really dry.
2. Pulling my hair back into a pony tail....I think I'm ready for a hair cut.
3. I almost always have chapstick with me.
4. Play piano on my fingers constantly, or twiddle my feet when I'm sitting in a chair.
5. Thoroughly clean the counters after dinner.

5 places I have lived:

1. Boulder, CO
2. Fort Collins, CO
3. Louisville, CO
4. Longmont, CO
5. Scotts Valley, CA

Hooray for the me-me! I think you are a fantastic mom, but you sure are good at babysitting too :)!

Yum, you are a snacker after my own heart. I love that I was with you 10 years ago. It makes me feel so blessed. Love you!
