Cecilia has tagged me!

What I was doing ten years ago:

I had just turned fourteen and after being abruptly pulled back from the dating scene by my father - what, you mean Dad's don't like when you have a boyfriend behind their back? - a baby-sitting oppurtunity presented itself that turned into more of a part of the family type job and the way I earned my first car, a Toyota MR2, sooo cute and I LOVEd it! I pretty much nannied the whole time I was fourteen and by the following year I WAS the nanny, as well as tutor, housekeeper, and cook. Those kids became like my own and I still see them. I just went to the oldests graduation in May.

5 years ago:
I had just turned 19 and my hubby had just proposed to me. I had a one year old and the situation was not very good. Family pressures were too much and to top it off his parents were getting in on it with not being too happy about us deciding to get married so soon. I had already decided that I was going to move to Texas sometime, I was only waiting around to give the guy I was dating a chance, which he took : ) . But even after I said yes I couldn't stand the environment I was in and had to go. My little guy and I packed up a few suitcases and got on a plane to Austin, Texas. Hubby followed me out a few months later and found a job, we were married a month later. We got our first apartment that we moved two days after our wedding and started the home buying process shortly thereafter. In April we closed on our new house and moved in, rather my Hubby and sister moved us in as I was two months pregnant, super tired and no help. We settled into our new home and enjoyed every bit of it. Wow a lot happened in the year I was nineteen, I had no idea until I just put it into words.

1 year ago:

I was living in Texas in my beautiful home, had just discovered blogging, perfectly happy and content. Yikes! I just realized my blogiversary went by with nary a word from me. Oh well, happy blogiversary me : ) ! Any ways a year ago today apparently I was painting and distressing my table. *sigh* Poor lonely table in storage.


I took my six year old to his Kinder Club group for kindergarten readiness, went to coffee with two of the moms, then dropped off my two year old with my MIL and went back to Big Guy's group for a parent teacher meeting, then went to the park with one of the Mom's and her two boys and my oldest for play and a picnic. Afterwards I picked up my Little Guy at the MIL's and took both of my boys downtown to paint at Petroglyph. We came home and I ate the Boneless Buffalo Wings from Chili's I had in the fridge from the night before and the boys had PBJ, Hubby came home and had Little Caesar's pizza that my Mom brought back for her and my nephew. Talk about routine. HA.

5 Snacks I enjoy:
Ice Cream
....oh, REAL snacks?!
oh okay - crackers
veggies and dip

5 bad habits I have (with help from Cecilia's list):
Amen to procrastinating!
Not being blunt enough!! Seriously can that be a bad habit? I won't say something I know I should and then I'll kick myself later for not saying it
Irritating my skin
Letting myself mire in a bad mood
And I'll go with eating too much sweets too (really is ice cream and a reese's in one day bad *smiles sweetly*)

5 things I like doing:
Picnicking with a beach towel on the grass on a sunny day
Reading a book, preferably in the same place
Going to the beach
Spending time with my family
Spending time wtih just the girls

5 things I would never wear:
Cowl neck, I just don't think I could pull it off
Cuffs on the bottom of my pants, even capri's, it makes short look shorter
A sequined dress or shirt, no, just no
Super high heels, my legs won't take it
Super short skirt, maybe on a date with my hubby but otherwise yeah, that's just what I want, everybody looking up my ass (eeeewww!)

5 TV Shows I like:
Extreme Home Makeover
Friends, I know it's not on the air anymore but still!

5 biggest joys of the moment:
My kids and their new discoveries and sweet things to say
Sunshine after a rain
Fresh blooming flowers
A good book
A deep dark tan

5 favorite toys:

Hi there! Thanks for commenting on my blog; I am going to put your blog as a link on my page. What part of California are you living now?

Cecilia said...

Sweetness! You are awesome. Thanks for playing along. Now I know more about you. :) I can't believe that it's already been a year since you've started out here --- happy bloggiversary! I loved your adventures especially when you packed and took off with your Little Guy at the age of 19!!! Brave soul. Can't help but sigh at the realization of how things DO work out for us. It's a comforting thought.

Chocolates and Belgium, as I see, are on the list! I still hope to be able to go out there to visit but you are all most certainly welcome over here when you get round to going! Maybe I'll have a bigger space by then (fat chance!) but I most certainly will be your true blue tour guide. :)

Oh...we both started going on dates at the same age! lol

ice cream and reese's on the same day are perfectly acceptable. it can make a bad day better, or it can be to celebrate an already great day!! :)

Allison said...

Wow, you DID have a busy 19th year! I was tagged on this one too. It is in my July archives.
