Tagged ... a while ago...

1- what I was doing 10 years ago :

Ten years ago, I was 13 years old. I had just started going to Encore Academy, which was a great experience for me. Before that, I was quiet and shy, and not at all outgoing. It gave me a huge boost in my self confidence. Some of my all-time best friends are those I met during the several years I spent in Encore.

2- Five years ago :

I had just graduated from high school. My senior year was a blast -- I watched most of my friends stress about A.P. tests and concurrent enrollment and honors classes. Meanwhile, I coasted through Choir, Seminary, Foods, Teacher Aid, Student Government, and my one "real" class -- Humanities. Sure, I regret not working harder in high school. But on the other hand, I can honestly say that I really had a good time.

Also, I was working at Video II with Guy Watts. And I had also just started dating Kellie Tye.

3- One year ago :

I was anxiously ripping link after link off the countdown chain that hung in my bedroom keeping track of the days until my wedding. I pretty much let her make all the decisions, as I only had an opinion on a couple of things. Those were exciting times. I'm sure glad I found Mary!

4- Yesterday :

Yesterday was Mary's birthday so we took the day off. We woke up around 8:00, and Mary opened her presents. Then we went out to eat at IHOP. One of her presents from me was Season 3 of "The Office" on DVD (which BTW is just about the funniest show ever!), so after breakfast, we came home and watched a few (I think 7...) episodes. Then we got ready for the day and went Mini-Golfing at Boondocks, at Mary's request. We finished off the day with dinner at Restaurante Morelia (some of the best Mexican food out there.)

5- Five Snacks I Enjoy :
  • 7-Layer Dip

  • Pringles (loaded baked potato...mmm....)

6- Five things I would do if I suddenly had $100,000,000 :

7- Five Locations I Would Like To Run Away To :

  • The Caribbean

8- Five Bad Habits I Have :

  • Bothering my wife to try and get a rise out of her, and then feeling bad when she finally gets mad... (although this one is pretty funny... :D)

  • Forgetting important things

12- Five Biggest Joys of the Moment :

great minds think alike! BIG fan of the jumbo popcorn chicken...and I resent the USU comment, no matter how true it was ! I am a true blooded aggie from Utah..and I love the spot where the sagebrush grows! (But i was happy the U won too..man i'm a very confused individual)
