I've been tagged...again!

Rules of this game.Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names and then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and that they should read your blog. Got it?

10 years ago...
I was in pre-nursing courses at BYU Provo & engaged to BJ. They were hard classes! Try Patho physiology & Microbiology while being engaged! We were married in April, the day after my last final. Oh yeah, my last final was at done at something like 7pm the night before my wedding!

5 things on my "to do"list today
Well, first of the all the day is over but what I had was...
1) Get through the piles on my dresser to finally dust under it (did it)
2) Get my bathroom & the kids bathroom cleaned (did it)
3) Do Jake's preschool book with him (his reading book--he's getting good!--we did it)
4) Finish my "homework"--I read a book on Asthma to get my CE (continuing education) credits done to renew my nursing license. Finally finished this & mailed it in! It's only taken me a year I think. I read half of it this last week!
5) Help the girls with piano...make practicing happen for two days in a row! (Yes!)

We are busy...had more than 5 things on the "to do" list!

Snacks I enjoy
I love chocolate chip granola bars (why do I buy these!). I love graham crackers, open faced toasted PPJ's, apples, slices of chedar cheese, bagels with cream cheese...I could go on :)

What I would do if I were suddenly a millionaire
Pay off our house, invest a bunch of it, put a bunch of it into savings...go to Europe with BJ or maybe Tahiti :)

3 bad habits
1)When we make chocolate chip cookies I can't just eat one or two...
2) Piles...too many piles
3) Stay up too late & pay for it in the morning (When do kids decide to sleep in past 6am?)

5 places I've lived
1) Alpine & Provo, UT
2)Santa Clarita, CA
3)Chiba, Japan (only for 6 weeks as an exchange student summer before my Junior yr of highschool).
4) Oahu, HI (went to BYU Hawaii my freshman yr of college and met BJ there)
5) Draper, UT

5 jobs I've had
1)Drive-through at McDonalds (my 1st job...wow)
2)Secretary for a Family Practice office (when I was in pre-nursing at BYU)
3) Pineapple Delights girl at the Night Show at the PCC (Polynesian Cultural Center) in Hawaii
4) Telemarketer (Pathetic high school job...that payed better than McDonalds--I was one of those voices pleading to give a survey!
5) Mother-Baby nurse & Piano teacher

5 things people don't know about me
1) I have very bad toe nails....VERY bad & I can push my lips under (and they'll stay). BJ HATES when I do this! (Picture Jim Carrey, anyone remember that movie?) Yes, teeth. Frightning!
2) I went sky-diving in Hawaii. Loved it! Never will do it again but loved it.
3) Ran track, cross-country & played on the high school basketball team. My relay team won 1st at State one year...I ran the 200 meters in that relay team. Good times.
4) I've river rafted down the Grand Canyon with my Dad & brothers & a bunch of other guys when I was in highschool. The only girl in the group. Can you tell I like thrills?
5) I once took a dare to eat pasta for an hour by my cousin (Erika & Heidi, you know who dared me to do this!) The dare was for $100...and he never paid up! I think I was dating BJ at the time. He found out early on he was with a girl that could eat. Boy was I sick! I still love pasta if you can believe it!
Friends I have tagged: Whit, Sunnee, Melissa, Angel & Jen.


Valentines Tag

I've been Valentines tagged! Here it goes...

1. How long have you been together? We celebrate our 10th Anniversary April 23rd! We're going on a cruise to the Mexican Riviera to celebrate. Ahhhhhh.
2. How old is he? 32 (33 in April)
3. How old are you? 29 (30 in March) I know, BIG ONE!
4. Who eats more? Hmmm. Anyone who knows me knows that I can eat. I think we tie. But, if we're eating chocolate chip cookies, I win.
5. Who said "I love you" first? BJ. Don't we all wait for the guy to say it first? I was ready to say it back pretty quick!
6. Who is taller? BJ.
7. Who sings better? Tie again. We don't have trained voices but we can stay on tune! Not many people know about BJ's GREAT singing voice. He can always pick out the harmony...where I love to sing the melody. OK...BJ just came in & denies the tie. He say's I'm better. Hm. :)
8. Who is smarter? Are we talking computer stuff or medical? Obviously I'm the medical but BJ is better at Perquackey. Any of you played that game?
9. Who does the laundry? Megan. BJ has tried very sweetly to do it before, but after some articles of clothing shrunk he has been forbidden. He does ALL his own ironing though. I HATE ironing!
10. Who does the dishes? Mostly Megan.
11. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? It changes. Every pregnancy I end up on the left but then when it's all over I'm back on the right.
12. Who pays the bills? Megan. Love the Bill Pay.
13. Who mows the lawn? Of course it's BJ. I don't think I've EVER mowed the lawn.
14. Who cooks dinner? Mostly Megan...but BJ makes GREAT gourmet breakfasts & Mexican. I CRAVE his salsa! He also likes to experiment. Most of the time it's REALL good...except when he put vanilla in the scrambled eggs back when I was pregnant with Loren & ohhhh was it bad! Now his experiments always surprise me with how fresh & creative they are. I really love when he cooks! I love to cook too. It's hard to find the time to really cook every day these days!
15. Who is more stubborn? On a scale of 1-10 - We're both not super stubborn people. Although BJ really was a stubborn kid I guess (according to Grandma).
16. Who kissed whom first? BJ kissed me first. VERY early on in our courtship :) I was realed right in! :)
17. Who asked whom out? BJ asked me out first. He worked in the testing center at BYU Hawaii & asked me out right before I was going to take a math test! Hard to concentrate on that one... I could see him through the window the whole time!
18. Who proposed? BJ. I knew it was coming. It was perfect. A view, down on one knee in the snow...a wonderful night.

19. Who is more sensitive? Definitely Megan. Megan can be WAY too sensitive. BJ is a good listener.
20. Who has more friends? I'd say we're the same. I chat, e-mail, blog with them more often though. We both love making new friends & staying in touch with old friends.
21. Who has more siblings? BJ. He's the 5th of 7. I'm the 1st of 5.
22. Who wears the pants in the relationship? I'm happy to say that we are truly equal partners.

I love BJ so much. He is my perfect fit, my best friend and the hottest guy around! We have the same goals, the same dreams. We love being parents & he is a GREAT Dad. I feel so blessed to have him in my life.

10 years has gone by so fast!

OKAY...now you all are tagged! What are all your answers. Happy Valentines Day!!
