Not unlike Jessica, I too enjoy taking a little time to just sit back and talk about myself. Since I've been tagged I'll get right to it...

10 Years Ago...
I had a flat cute stretch mark-free tummy, I was living in Provo, going to UVSC, taking the year off from dating and spending time doing things just for me, like reading-A LOT!!! I was also enjoying Einstein's bagels. There isn't a decent bagel shop in town and I do so like a toasted chocolate chip bagel with a shmear.

5 Things on my to do list today:
go visiting teaching-done
clean the kitchen-mostly done
pay bills-done
go to Costco-
make dinner-Costco pizza perhaps?

Snacks I enjoy:
chocolate chip cookies, wheat thins, Dr. Pepper, Skor bars, Peppermint Patties, blended mochas, brownies, salt and vinegar chips

Things I'd do if I were a Billionaire:
-I'd have all the scrapbooking supplies a girl could want
-I'd add on a bonus room above the garage, extend Brett's workshop and buy him every tool he might need, and possibly a motorcycle to work on
I'd also add on an additional storage room and buy enough food storage to never have to grocery shop again
-I'd get a hot tub
-Oh, and I'd buy myself some new boobs and botox-so vain but hey, I'm a billionaire!

3 of my bad habits:
-I'm terribly messy, not filthy nasty messy, but I don't mind leaving toys and clothes lying around and I don't care if people see me in my pajamas-we all wear them!
-I speak my mind more than I should
-I'm lazy

Jobs I've had:
call center-telemarketing and market research, phone book editing, janitor-got fired, support for people with disabilities, retail, fast food, newspaper girl, lab assistant, and currently a mother-hope I don't get fired!

Things people don't know about me:
-I'm afraid of sharks
-I can't stop eating See's candy-if I get a pound it's usually gone in two days-with or without help!
-I love Christmas music, usually at times of the year other than Christmas-July through October-and I especially love listening to it while cleaning the house.
-I need to be needed.
-I hate public speaking
-I can't swim without plugging my nose

Who I'm tagging:
Kim, Ariann, Tracy, Melissa, and you!

Wendy, I didn't know about the swimming. I remember those nose plugs though when we were kids!! I bet I have a picture somewhere, or my mom.

how funny that I didn't know about the noseplugging thing. I thought that I was the only one that had to swim one handed when I forgot to bring the nose clips! And diving? FORGET ABOUT IT!

Do you remember that 10 years ago we were roommates? Oy...I'm getting old. And I cannot imagine you being afraid of public speaking!

Rupper Family said...

Oh Jess, you're right! I was thinking a year ahead of myself on the timeline. I'm getting so old I forget!
The good ol' Glenwood days...remember the funerals we had for the guppies? And remember how much Josie hated me? And then there was the mysterious flood, our wall of food boxes, and Eric and Rachel glued to the couch...we had good times eh?

Thanks for the dedication of pictures to me, Wendy. :) I shall continue to look for updates regularly as I live vicariously watching your adorable kids grow up.
