So McMommy tagged me for a Meme

Here is the 5 Things Meme

First, the rules (and oddly, only two of them...why not five?):
1. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
2. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment letting them know they've been tagged and to ask them to play along and to read your blog.

what i was doing ten years ago...
1 Getting my driver's license
2 Only being allowed to drive to piano lessons
3 Hanging out with my brothers and my bestest, Crouton
4 She and I went to see Ever After 4 times in the theater
5 We were not what you would call "cool"

five things on my to-do list today...
1 Send a TON of emails for work
2 Fold the Mount Everest of Laundry
3 Play with the Penny, she has been home alone today
4 Clean my bathrooms
5 Pay bills, esp. rent (due today!)

five snacks i enjoy...
1 French Fries of all shapes and sizes (McDs being the best)
2 Miller Lite/white wine
3 Diet Coke
4 Reduced Fat Wheat Thins and Pepper Jack Cheese/or the fancy version: chips and queso
5 Rice Krispie Treats (homemade still warm!)

five things i would do if i was a billionaire...

1 Travel to everywhere...first on the list: Napa (culinary institute of america and vineyards, what more can a girl ask for?!?)
2 Buy a house...a cottage on a lake
3 New clothes, new coats, new shoes
4 Help my husband start all of his wonderful ideas
5 Have kids and lots of 'em

five of my bad habits....
1 I let clean laundry sit in the basket WAY too long before folding it. Then, of course, it’s all wrinkly. And I’m not an iron-er.---I am the same as McMommy...it is my worst and laziest vice.
2 I drink diet coke and I should stop
3 I check email/blogs way too often
4 I am lazy and hormonal and that's no good
5 I don't work out enough (see lazy in #4)

five places i have lived....
1 Atlanta, Ga (born)
2 Lilburn, GA ('burb of the ATL where I was raised)
3 Greenville, SC (working on the Undergrad at ole FU)
4 Washington, DC (Grad school and newlywedom)
5 Ann Arbor, MI (current residence and hub's law school)

five jobs i've had....
1 T-shirt folder at T-shirt's plus (the wonderful establishment where you could have a kitten or unicorn heat pressed onto a pink sweatshirt)
2 Research assistant for policy lawyer (read a lot of stuff my high school mind couldn't grasp)
3 Event coordinator and researcher for a public policy firm in Greenville while in college
4 Waitress while in college at Longhorn's steak-Rack 'em
5 Event coordinator and development hack at an Internship nonprofit in DC
(6-event coordinator and development hack at the awful branch of Alzheimer's Assoc Great Lakes chapter and 7-admissions and external affairs at Ave Maria School of Law)

Whew! That was fun!
Here are some new people to do a meme (if my usual peeps (Pea, Kels, Erin) want to tap in, I'd love to hear from you!)

April at To Live is To Love
My friend from Ave, K-Re
The Ben Show because she keeps up with me.
Pug Lover 'cause puppy lovin' is a good thing
Trying her Best cause she is tough and funny

You have no idea how much it comforts me to know that someone else out there in the world has several Mount Everest laundry piles--both clean and dirty--in their home.

And warm Rice Krispie treats?? I would DIE for some right now!!

Erin said...

What a fun meme! I, too, and a HORRIBLE laundry keeper! I do the the laundry and it sits. Then, I fold the laundry and it sits until the weekend when I MAKE MYSELF do it!

Pepper Jack cheese and rosemary and olive oil triscuits are my favorite! I have to heat them up in the microwave! YUMMO!

I am rethinking the kid thing as my niece is upstairs throwing a FIT about going to bed.

Sheila said...

I found your blog through April's ....

I am a horrible laundress too! Although my clothes never make it to the laundry basket. I just keep them in the dryer and then keep on turning on the dryer to get the wrinkles out.

No wonder everything has shrunk!

P.S. I enjoy reading your blog so I finally decided to leave a comment!

mmmm rice krispie treats... and longhorn. We dont have any of those up here (longhorn not rice krispie treats) and I miss them terribly.

I too have piles of laundry, shocking right?! I think its a sign of a fulfilled woman to have piles of laundry around. obviously we have too many other things to do!

thanks for tagging me, and thinking I'm tough. : ) I'll hop on it tonight!

Lena said...

WAIT WAIT WAIT! You lived in Lilburn????? That's where my husband grew up! How crazy is that? I wonder if y'all knew each other...

Lena said...

Okay, Brad went to Arcado Elementary and Parkview High School - he graduated high school in 2002, and his brother, Chad Warnock, graduated in 1998. How crazy is this????

The Ben Show said...

Awesome blossom! I had some of the same responses as you!

Leigh said...

GREAT answers. I just love those meme question thingys. I love to find out about people. Inquiring minds.....

BTW- hate to fold too. I just move the pile from place to place.

Ashley said...

We should definitely be "real-life" friends...I love a lgass of white wine on a stressful day ( and I also check my blogs and emails WAY too often!)

Stephenie said...

Fundraising AND waitressing???
You and I have too much in common.... including the laundry issues.

Thanks for stopping by Hotwheel Hacienda! I look forward to popping on on you more often!
