1. Aruba and I'm ready to go back!

Jason said...

I'll play along, even though you know most of these answers already.

1. San Deigo; Los Angeles; with a side trip to Vegas.

2. You mean currently? If so, that'd be David Cook. All-time is probably Daughtry.

3. I minister in an associate way.

4. Pinto beans & cornbread. Stickies for dessert.

5. 12 packs of Coke, 4/$10.

6. To learn Spanish.

7. I hate chewing gum.

8. Mt. Dew

9. Weeded the flower beds and mowed the yard!


Here goes...
1. Hawaii...it was BEAUTIFUL, but we needed more than a week to see and do everything!
2. Haven't watched this season, so I don't really know.
3. Stay at home mom now, but taught before...5th grade for one year and Kindergarten for 2.
4. Poppyseed Chicken.
5. Shirts for the girls 2 for $12 and shorts 2 for $15 at Children's Place.
6. Short term goal - To make it to August when my kids start preschool and I'll have a little mommy time. :)
Long term - To get my Masters in Elementary Education (online) before I go back to teaching...or atleast be nearing the end of it.
7. I dated a foreign exchange student from Iceland in high school. I'd like to forget this one. :)
8. Neither...if I have to pick a coke product it would be Sprite.
9. For something REALLY recent, I'd say I vacuumed and swept and mopped. I'm ashamed to say that that doesn't happen a whole lot these days.
For something not so recent I'd say carrying three babies in my belly at one time and spending 7 weeks in the bed on LOTS of medicine and surviving is something I'm proud of.
