I've been TAGGED

A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning. B. Each player answers the questions about themselves. C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

10 years ago: I was in High School, spent most of my time swimming and working as a lifegurad/swim instructor.

5 things on my to do list today: 1. Clean my house for our SuperBowl Party 2. take a nap 3. Make a few phone calls 4. Take & Pick up Grady from Preschool. 5. Get the mail

Snacks I enjoy: Lets see...chips, chocolate, ice cream, cheese & crackers, salsa & chips, to name a few.

What I would do if I were suddenly a billionaire: First I would invest most of it so that way we could live off the interest. But then I would buy some nice property in Carlsbad and build our dream house along with a house for my parents to live in right next door. And I am sure I would buy a few things, maybe a new car, clothes, shoes, stuff for the kids.

3 of my bad habits: Eating too many sweets, talking on the phone too much & shopping too much.

5 places I have lived: Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona

5 jobs I have had: Swim Instructor, Lifeguard, AR Mananger, Service Dept. Head Cashier & Receptionist

5 things people don't know about me: 1. I'm 1/4 Swedish, Mormor (grandma) was raised there 2. I swim competetivly 3. I love photography 4. I want to go back to school when my kids are older to be a RN in Labor & Delivery 5. And the big shocker... Mike and I are in the process of adopting a week old baby girl. Her name is Kennedy Cathrine-Marie, she was born Jan. 24th weighing 5 lbs 5 oz and 17 inches long. She came home with us on Sat. the 27th. So life is busy with 3 kids under the age of 3.

Growing Fast!

Here are a few pictures of Abigail. She is getting so big, I can't believe she will be 3 months old next weekend. Wow where does the time go. She is smiling, laughing, little raspberries and babbling. I know I am bias but I think she is so cute!!! She is a good baby for the most part. And a little mommy brag...she's been sleeps through the night since 5 weeks old!! Now if I could just get Grady to sleep past 5:00 am.


Here are a few pictures from our trip to Oregon. Sorry for the mass posting!!

Christmas great. We had our big dinner on Christmas Eve, and Jenica & Justin came over. We opened our Christmas PJ's and then Jenica & Justin opened their presents cause they weren't spending Christmas day with us. So here are a few pictures. Grady opening his present from Jenica & Justin

Gingerbread House!

Ok so I am really late on posting Christmas stuff but my mom only has dial up (which is far to slow for me to deal with). And we just got back on the 13th. So I have been busy unpacking and organizing. So I am trying to catch up. Grady & I made his first Gingerbread house. He was more interested in eating the candy then putting it on the house. But we (more like I) finished it.
