5 Things

Jenifer has tagged me for the 5 things meme. Thanks Jenifer, I've enjoyed getting to know you over the last few weeks. :) I love new siesta's.....

What I was doing 10 years ago: (1998)
1. I was working for EMJ Corporation in Chattanooga
2. On the weekend I was playing piano at a couple of different churches..
3. I was loving being an Aunt to Baily and Shelby
4. Chad and I were settling into a new home because...

5 things on my to-do list today: (This is what I did today, since I waited until Tuesday evening to post this.)
1. School with the girls.
2. Clean out master-closet. Swap out winter/summer clothes.
3. Put listening CD in mail for the band and praise team I'll work with in May
4. Remind Chad to pick up his pants...(Apparently when you lose 25 pounds, things have to be tailored. I wouldn't know anything about loosing 25 pounds...)
5. Find 20 minutes to be alone at piano to work on lyrics for the melody I have running in my head.

5 snacks I enjoy:
1. POPCORN - it's a staple in this house.
2. Apple and peanut butter
3. Chips and Salsa
4. ?????? I'm not a big snacker! I can't think of anything else!!!

5 things I would do if I were a billionaire:
1. Give above the tithe
2. Pay off our house and car. Then invest the rest of the money to make it work for us so we can do mission trips whenever we want to.
3. Send my parents around the world and buy them the cottage they've been looking at
4. Pay off all our siblings debt and set up college funds for our nieces and nephews.
5. Take ALL of our siblings and their spouse, nieces and nephews to Disney World.

5 bad habits:
1. Ummmmm, have I told you about my silverware drawer???
2. I pop my fingers.
3. I skip breakfast.
4. I bite my lip.
5. Do bad habits and OCD go hand in hand? If so, I have more than 5.

5 places I've lived:
1. Chattanooga, TN
2. Raleigh, NC
3. Dacula, GA
4 & 5 are wide open....that means, it's up to God. :)

5 jobs I've had
1. Candy Striper or "junior volunteer" for the American Red Cross IT WAS THE HARDEST WORK EVER.
2. Desk Clerk for Courtyard By Marriott.
3. Various things at EMJ.
4. Church Pianist/Children's Choir Coordinator/women's ministry co-director
5. Stay at home Mommy!!! My Favorite by far. :)

Okay, so I'm tagging: YOU!!! If you haven't done this yet, then consider yourself tagged!

We live just outside of Raleigh. How cool! I took piano lessons for 4 years and only made it to book 2. My parents thought every well-respected preacher's daughter should know how to play- oh well! I tried, just wasn't coordinated enough; instead I took up voice. Hey, maybe we could go on the road. You play, I'll sing!! :)

Sister, I'm right there with you on the OCD thing!

Thanks for joining in. It's been so fun getting to know you more.

Hey, about the whole siesta thing- what going on in San Anton?

Oh I just posted something...which by the way I need your input! :)
i'll do this later ok??? I love these and haven't done a meme in awhile!

Can I come hear you play piano??
Thats just soothing to my soul. I played for awhile and then it got hard and I quit. Isn't that they way life goes sometimes?

Blessings friend. I hope y'all are having a good day!! And, I'm a little OCD too....maybe a lot OCD and my husband is too so thats real scary!

Just coming by here from Jenifer's meme tag! Nice to meet you!
We have some common snacks! Okay, mine also involved a lot of chocolate, BUT others are the same. :) I truly did almost put apples with peanut butter, but dark chocolate won out!
