a tag

I was tagged by Lisa and figured, since my house is spotless, my laundry is finished and put away, I jogged 10 easy miles today, and I premade and froze 4 meals for this week, that I'd have a little extra time to spend it on blogging.

Here it goes.

4 Things

4 things that I was doing 10 years ago:
As a just turned sophomore, I was religiously following my Cross Country practice routine for the new college I was about to transfer to. I was saying goodbye to my ORU roommates and hello to my Northwestern College roommates. I was confessing to my boyfriend/now husband that I didn't think he "loved me enough and I think we should break up," for the 43rd time. I was driving around in my grocery-go-getter...the Mercury Lynx.

4 things on my To-Do list for today:
Comfort and love on a best friend from high school and my maid of honor while at her father's funeral. Take a walk through my parents' cow pasture and down to their creek with Julia, Luke and my mom...while the babies napped. Call my husband and tell him that I love him. Comfort and love on a best friend from high school and my maid of honor while at her father's funeral.

4 random things I love about my husband:
He is a go-getter and must get things done instantly.
He is always thinking about ways to make my day.
He's adventurous and talks about all the places he wants to visit with me.
He is a fanatical Fantasy Football pro. Not to mention a sportsaholic.

4 jobs that I have had:
Many jobs within 3 different YMCAs.
First grade teacher in an inner inner city school.
Waitress at a downtown Japanese restaurant. (Ok, fine. It was only for 3 days, and then I quit because I couldn't understand a lick of what anyone was saying.)
Barista at Starbucks.

4 movies I've watched more than once:
The Notebook
The Wedding Planner
Dumb & Dumber

4 places I have lived:
the basement of a sweet old lady's house...I'd clean her house and bake cookies with her for rent. an apartment 4 minutes from campus with 3 fabulous roommates
a new townhouse in suburbia, Midwest...with Mr. Marvelous after we wed
a house on the hill, with trees and these

4 places I have been:

4 places I want to visit:
Bora Bora
Costa Rica

4 TV shows I watch:
Jon and Kate plus 8
The Bachelor(ette)
American Idol..I didn't start until last season
..that's it.

4 things you may not know about me:
I married my husband who is younger than me and who graduated high school with my younger brother.
If nutritionally appropriate, I'd eat Nacho Cheese Doritos every day.
I may appear as the calm and collected type, but it's all an act.
I could sit and listen all day to my grandparents tell stories from their past.

4 people I tag:

I work at the YMCA too! I am a front desk/secretary person and I am also a "maintenence engineer" which basically means I clean toilets as well (janitor) :-p
That is funny, in the last week I have stumbled across 2 people that work at ymca's!

If everything in that preamble were true (which I somehow doubt;), I may have to just remove you from my blog list. I simply can't deal with the feelings of guilt and jealousy you would cause me.

Angela said...

that was so much fun to read, tiffany! I want to go to Cozumel this year... it's pretty nice, huh? OH! And now that I know you watch the Bachelor- you must lament with me this season over all the nonsensical antics... are you in?? Lisa can commiserate with us- she watches, too.

Annika said...

Thanks for the tag :) I will get on that tomorrow!

I had NO idea you went to ORU! I toured that college when I was a senior in high school. Heather Pollard (you might know her?), a wonderful friend from back home, went to ORU and so did her brother, Brett. I love these little "tagging" games!

By the way, back before my Grandma and Grandpa passed away, I, too, could sit for hours on end listening to them talk about their past. I LOVED hearing stories of when they met, their first kiss (my Grandma was NOT expecting it and slapped my Grandpa right across the face), and particularly about their dancing days. Dancing was "the thing" to do back then...

Sometimes I wish I grew up in those days...but then again, I'm not sure I'd enjoy running outside, in the blustery winter nights, to use the outhouse. Yuck.

Thanks for playing! I love these and it's so fun to learn a little more about you. :)

I watched American Idol for the first time last season too--it's kind of addicting, isn't it?

You are too good. 10 miles and frozen food. :)
Love this post. It's fun to get to know you.
