Tag Chaser

Not literally but I got my first tag in the blogosphere! Whoo hoo. Not that this is some kind of popularity contest... I'm not that shallow, (no one ever thinks they are right?) but I was tagged twice for the same survey, once by Jrzywife and once by Corn! Thanks ladies :) I appreciate the love.

Each player answers the questions about themselves. 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.

So here we go... about me MeMe

5 things I was doing ten years ago:
1. Going to school sporting a rather fabulous Lisa Frank binder
2. developing crushes on the neighbor boys
3. being painfully abusive to my younger brother, who is now one of my best friends. Maybe he blocked it all out...
4. Kicking butt as the statistically best goalie in the hockey league I played in (the only sport I was EVER good at)
5. Working on my back handspring and stunting abilities for Genesis' cheer team.

5 things on my to-do list today
1. Enroll a couple of campers who's applications I received today
2. Take lots of pictures of the weekends events!
3. Lifeguard for the canoe and kayak class at 1:30
4. Destroy some parents in a rousing game of kickball at 4:00
5. make smores with kids at campfire later tonight.
(it's family weekend at the camp I work at. So much fun :) did I mention I love my job?)

5 snacks I enjoy
1. Craisins... those things are fabulous!!
2. Deer jerky, there is a place down the road that makes some amazing jerky!
3. mixed nuts... I actually usually have a little can on my desk with like peanuts, cashews, almonds, Brazil nuts, pistachios... nuts :)
4. Coffee or Red Bull... yes, I completely consider these to be a snack.
5. String cheese. I buy large quantities of string cheese.... not embarrassing at all.

5 things I would do if I were a billionaire
1. pay off all my debt!! (yay for no more student loans!)
2. Set aside money to pay for all my siblings to go to college so THEY don't have student loans either!
3. Buy my parents a home of their choice
4. Set up a nice trust fund for future children
5. Play, buy a new car, and travel travel travel.

5 bad habits
1. Biting my finger nails... I'm getting better though!
2. chewing on straws after I'm done with my drink... so bad for your teeth I hear
3. Overloading my invisible life "plate"
4. Myspace like it's a crack addiction and I'm going to rehab tomorrow.
5. washing dishes before I put them in the dishwasher... I don't consider this a "bad" habit but it annoys people when they're trying to help me do the dishes.

5 places I've lived
1. Elk City, Oklahoma.... please, for your sake, leave it off your list of 1,000 places to see before you die. It's ok. You're not missing ANYTHING
2. Austin, Texas - now that you have a slot there since you crossed off Elk City, ADD Austin!
3. New Braunfels, Texas - home of Gruene hall, America's number 1 water park, and miles of river with which to toob down in the summer! Can't beat it.
4. San Antonio, Texas - Riverwalk anyone?
5. Kerrville, Texas - God created the Texas hill country so he could vacation there. It's absolutely beautiful.

5 jobs I've had
1. Design assistant at a flower shop
2. Lifeguard at America's number 1 water park! Schlitterbahn.
3. Children's Research center at the University of Texas - can we do some experiments on your babies brain please? (c'mon folks that was a joke!)
4. "Hi welcome to CiCi's!" - that was me... I'm a whiz with pizza flavors.
5. Registrar at the most amazing summer camp ever :)

All right now I have to tag five people and see if they will be so kind as to fill this out with their info and post it on their blog! I choose...

Lt. Nixon at Lt. Nixon Rants - the man is my source of daily good, bad, and ugly in Sgt's world. He's funny too!
(Army)Wife at More than an (Army)Wife - She's already such an interesting gal! I love reading about the adventures of her and Stonewall
Stephanie over at She who waits - She's about ready to be MIA with her hubby coming home so soon! She started blogging when she was just a girlfriend as well so I was so glad to see her story evolve!
Katie at Future Mrs. Waage - today she is officially no longer the future Mrs. but the actual Mrs.!! congrats on the big day Katie!
and last but not least D.A.R. at The Student and the Soldier - I think Jrzywife may have already tagged you... hmm... well she's a fabulous blogger and I have a feeling she's attending law school at my alma mater, but that's just a guess. :)

Have a great day everyone!



So glad to see that I'm not the only one who was a little excited when I got tagged! man and you got tagged twice. : )

smores and dodgeball... your day rocked! glad to see dodgeball can still be played somewhere in the world.
