Ariane tagged me with this survey, so here it is:
10 years ago: I was a freshman at Las Vegas High School. I had bleached yellow hair (gross) and was pretty much a big nerd (not much has changed). My Best Friends were Kelsea Warburton, Elise Austin, Stacey Lewis, and Theresa. This is the year that Jared and I really became good friends; we would sit in the band hallway and eat lunch together most days. I had a crush on a guy who I thought was great but he ended up being kinda a jerk.

Snacks I enjoy:
ice cream, cheesecake, pretty much anything involving chocolate, and fruit.

5 things on my to-do-list today:
1. Clean and Vacuum the living room
2. Help Landon clean up his room
3. Spend time with the kids
4. Go to Target if Jared gets home from school at a decent time.

Things I would do if I were suddenly made a billionaire:
1. Buy a bigger car for the family, fitting 3 car seats into a 5 passenger vehicle is a bit tight.
2. Buy a nice House and furnish it
3. Pay off our student loans
4. Go on a shopping spree
5. Travel to different places and visit family more often.
6. Put most of it into savings.

3 of my bad habits:
1. I am a procrastinator.
2. I am a worrier. I don't feel right unless I am worried about something and a lot of times the things that I worry about are not even important or realistic.
3. I bit/rip my nails off when they get too long.

5 places I have lived:
1. Ontario, CA
2. Las Vegas, NV
3. Provo, UT
4. Reno, NV
5. Elkhart, IN

5 Jobs I have had:
1. Wells Fargo Bank Teller
2. Language Testing Center test administer/ proctor
3. I worked in Quality Towing’s lien department, I also worked the car auctions as a cashier/ Notary Public. I made good money at the auctions.
4. Bridesmaid attendant at David's Bridal. (That lasted all of 2 weeks )
5. Cashier for UNR's Sport's Ticket Sales.

Things people don't know about me:
1. I love to shop alone. I don't like Jared shopping with me and if I am buying stuff like clothes for myself I'd rather shop alone then with other people. I really like going shopping with other people if they are buying stuff for themselves but if I am shopping for me I like to be alone.
2. I'd rather read children's lit and Young Adult Lit then adult Lit. Usually I find the topics more interesting and the books are usually cleaner.
3. While I often miss living close to family, I have really enjoyed living in different parts of the country. I like experiencing new places, making new friends, and learning that all I really need is my husband and children with me to be happy and to feel like I'm at home.
4. I'm not very interesting. There are not a whole lot of things about me that everyone else doesn't already know:).

Now I tag: Theresa, Shayla, Summer, and Kristen

Your list was so fun! You have lived in a good variety of places!

I totally agree with you about just needing your husband and your kids to feel at home! However, I will feel much better when we are all living in Smithville (heehee)!

Kerstin I'm so glad you found me! I saw your name on a blog last night and I was going to try and find you again today. Your kiddo's are so cute! Send me and e-mail or something! I'm going to add you to my blog if thats ok. I'm so excited to hear from you. Travis,my brother is in Indy. He was in Elkhart for a long time. He is in Frankfort now. Anywho, shoot me an e-mail,

Wow, you shop alone?! I am so proud of you. I have to shop with one other person. More than that is too many, but I don't like going alone. I rarely buy anything (and really, what fun is shopping unless you spend money!). I need someone there to tell me it's fantastic and I must have it immediately.

I love that you did this list, I mean I feel that I know a lot about you, but there is always room to learn more!! Also, I am commenting on your old post, but I love the bunk beds, Ari, Ash, and I had a three bed bunker, I loved it !!

hehe ... i love shopping alone as well. if i go with other people i NEVER buy anything for me. (unless its my best friend, we work well shopping together, always have) but i CANNOT go shopping with robby unless we are only trying to find him stuff. i'd muh rather leave aidan with rob and spend some time with myself! i totally get that!

Theresa said...

I like shopping with KT. I guess I can't decide what I like on my own. I'm too self concious or however you spell that. However,...I don't like shopping with anyone else for me. only KT. maybe kk. So if I can't have my KT,.. I like to shop by myself for me.

so about this tag thing,... why do we have to do it?

Theresa said...

the only other person I like to shop with for me is Dan,.. but I know it's painful for him so I usually forgo.
