5 Things Meme

It's been a while since I've done a meme. Thanks to BlackeyedSue for tagging me!

5 things I was doing 10 years ago


1. Guapo and I had just celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary.

2. Guapo and I had just announced that I was expecting our first baby!

3. I was starting my 2nd year of my master's program at BYU.

4. I had to tell my professor I was pregnant and therefore didn't want to go to Bolivia with him to do field research (using the pregnancy as an excuse-really I was afraid to go to South America-little did I know what my life held in store for me!!!)

5. We were living in the basement of a house owned by Guapo's family-with 6 single guy renters above us. A little icky.

5 Things on My To Do List Today



1. All things domestic-the maid doesn't come on Wednesdays

2. Go to Margarita's 4th grade open house

3. Master Portuguese

4. Pick up kids

5. Blog!

5 Snacks I Enjoy



1. Chip Cookies, especially ones that my friend Suzzy makes

2. brownies

3. Jicama with Chile and Lime

4. Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey Ice Cream

5. Peanut butter cookies with a kiss on top (again, preferably made by Suzzy)

5 Songs I Know the Lyrics to



1. Sadly, most sappy love songs from the 70's and 80's as when I was in high school I listened to a cheesy station called "Kosi 101". (Guapo LOVES to tease me about this)

2. "Come, Come, Ye Saints"-just memorized this one

3. "It's the End of the World As We Know It"-high school graduation song

4. La Cucaracha

5. Most songs from "Grease"

5 Things I would do if I were a millionaire



1. Invest in real estate

2. Set aside enough money for college for our kids

3. Take a trip to Asia

4. And Italy

5. And buy some shoes, of course

5 Bad Habits



1. Leave cabinet doors open after use

2. I buy fun stuff for my kids to do and then hoard them for a "rainy day"

3. Can't just eat one cookie-must have a lot!

4. Stay up too late needing "me" time only to hate myself in the morning

5. Smoking (just seeing if you are still reading this)

5 Things I'd never wear again

1. My label maker

It must be my lucky day.
That picture of the cookies is mouth watering.
So, how's the Portuguese coming along? Does the maid also take the weekend off or just Wednesday?
I did read "smoking". So there.

Yay, I'm number 2! :o)

I think I'm going to have to go make some chocolate chip cookies.

I also love my Kitchen Aid. How did my life function without it?

I did this meme awhile ago, it was a fun one! I tend to stay up late too for me time..."me time hours" go much quicker than "keep 5 kids happy" hours!
Good luck learning Portuguese.

NCS: she's off every Wednesday-she stays over Friday and leaves Saturday around 12. I need a day with no one in the house-it's my favorite day of the week!

Portuguese (or as my kids call it "Pork-a-cheese" sucks. Thanks for asking though.

Nikko: I know!! I found that picture and it seriously made my mouth water!

Maine mom: thanks! I need it!

Janice said...

That was our graduation song as well! They used the same one two years in a row?! LAME!

I am also glad that I will never wear maternity clothes again!

Craving chocolate chip cookies now...

utmommy said...

I can never eat just one cookie either. I need to have at least six or so!!

Joyismygoal said...

love all those snacks!

Blackeyedsue said...

Okay, the irony of you not wanting to live in South America has me rolling!!!

And now I have La Cucaracha running through my head!

Thanks for playing Gabs!
