A little late!

My blogging has been really lame lately. I know this. I have been a bit of a boring {read lazy} person as of late. Anyway, Allison tagged me, so here goes.

10 years ago...
I was in High School thinking I was "all that" with a busy schedule of school, boys, sports, boys, shopping, boys, church and boys. Am I ever glad that era is over!

  1. Fill and package some SayItOnTheWall orders
  2. Pick up my messy house

  4. Check my blood glucose
  5. Finish the dishes
5 Snacks I enjoy
  1. Diet Dr. Pepper from the fountain at Giant (where I get it is VERY important!)
  2. Chile/lime pistachios
  3. watermelon
  4. 7 layer bean dip
  5. chips and Mariela's salsa
What would I do if I were suddenly made a billionaire

Pay tithing, pay off the mortgage on our house, pay off Brad's student loans, take a wonderful vacation, pay for kids college, donate to JDRF, invest and I am sure some other things, but I cannot even fathom what that much money can do so I am pretty lame at pretending I know what I would do with it.

  1. Algodones, NM
  2. Rexburg, ID
  3. Wuhan, China
  4. Provo, Ut
  5. Rio Rancho, NM

  3. Assistant to the Admin Assistant at SAIC
  4. Courtyard by Marriott front desk clerk
  5. Behavioral Health Specialist at UVRMC In-patient Psych Unit
5 Things you don't know about me
  1. Brad and I are counting down the days until we turn 30 so we can finally start the process of adopting the baby girl we know will be waiting in China
  2. I have always been/will always be a mommy AND daddy's girl
  3. I am partially deaf in my left ear
  4. I want to be a Behavioral Profiler when I grow up

The Greatest Invention

The other night my entire family almost died. Brad and I both woke up at 5 AM and I went into the hallway and immediately smelled gas. I went into the kitchen and saw that our gas stove had been left on ignite all night. Reese likes to turn the knobs and apparently I didn't notice. The gas had been going since 8 PM--we are so lucky nothing happened.

Anyway, that day I did some searching online and found these baby proof covers for our knobs. Hopefully little smarty pants doesn't figure them out too quickly.
