Who I Am Meme--Tagged by Tiffany!

I was tagged by Tiffany to play a “Who Are You?” Meme.

- The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
- Each player answers the questions about themselves.
- At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people, posts their names, and then leaves a comment on their blogs, letting them know they've been tagged.

What was I doing 10 years ago?
~ Well, I was 12, almost 13.

~ I was in the angst-filled years of just becoming a teenager. This was a very short phase for me, but I was starting to kind of have that "I'm too cool" attitude. Looking back, I HATE that I acted that way...even if it didn't last long!

~ We were living in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, which I consider my home. I was attending Schultz Middle School and performing the role of the "Stepmother" in Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Cinderella." This may seem strange, but that was the best performance experience I've ever had...and I've performed a lot! Mr. Mike Dumey was our director, and he made school bearable for me. I didn't mind going to my other classes because I knew that I'd get to sing in choir at least an hour each day. Even though we were young, we had a very mature performance, and got rave reviews! :)

~ I was in love with Prince William. I LOVE. My #1 goal in life at that point was to get to England. Not just to hunt him down, but to just see this country that I was interested in. Any country that still had castles was the place for me! And, I'm proud to say 10 years later, I've been---twice :)

~I loved, loved, loved my church--Lynwood Baptist (still do!). We had a good number of people in youth group, and we took mission trips, had pizza, learned about the Bible and current issues, and enjoyed sitting together in the service. I just have good memories of that time.

Five Things on my to-do list today.
~ I'm at work, so....make it through the day!
~ Work on my "For Women Only" bible study that we started in Lifegroup---yay!
~ Have lunch with my sweet daddy.
~ Pick up copies of VIP magazine...our wedding is in it!
~ Love on my sweet husband and watch DWTS, Bachelor, and Jon & Kate Plus 8 :)

Five Snacks I enjoy.
~ Goldfish.
~ My ice cream cake that I's so fattening but so delicious.
~ A few pieces of dark chocolate.
~ This counts as a dessert, but my mom's marshmellow crescent rolls!
~ If it's not good for me, I probably enjoy snacking on it.

Five Things I would do if I were a billionaire.
~ Give, give, give to my church!
~ Pay off all debts!
~ Travel- A LOT!
~ Give back to my family....they deserve it so much.
~ Bless those I come across in need, but in secret. (Good one, Tiffany!)

Five bad habits.
~ My blogging/internet addiction.
~ Staying up way too late-I mean REALLY late.
~ Not exercising enough.
~ Over analyzing everything! (Me too, Tiffany!)
~ Holding grudges/associating things, places, and people with bad memories.

Five places I have lived.
~ Texas
~ Florida
~ Oklahoma
~ Missouri
~ Mississippi
(And I'm adding one because it's cool: London, England!)

Five Jobs I've had.
~ The perfume counter at McRae's..only on a few Saturdays.
~ Protea Dekor...a decorating store/interior designer
~ I've painted Scripture on canvases for people's homes and gotten paid for them
~ Nanny
~ Northbay Subdivision---I got paid to supervise the pools...basically, I got paid to lounge around. But it was hot.
~ Annelle Primos Interior Design.

Five people I want to know more about (a nice way of saying TAG):
1) Jenny
2) Andrea
3) Katrice
4) Demetria
5) Olivia

Love It! We really do have alot in common. I'm going to pray about the "holding grudges," b/c I struggled w/ that for so- so many years. I used to carry it around a wear it like an open wound or battle scar,- the betrayal, what I felt was unprovoked viciousness from others. I would cry and ask God why- how could "she/he/they" do this to me. I was extremely sensitive. I can tell you nothing is so freeing as forgiveness. Believe me, I still can't do it alone, but I know I can through the grace of God! Blessings to you!
