Five Things MeMe!

I was tagged by Danielle for my first ever meme.

Five things I was doing 10 years ago:

1. I had a 4year old, a 2 1/2 year old, and a 2 month old.
I knew I had just given birth to my last child.

2. My husband and I were house hunting for our first home.

3. I had not discovered the flat iron, so I kept my hair very short.

4. We had just celebrated our 4th Wedding Anniversary.

5. I was preparing myself to send my first baby off to pre-school
(now I'm preparing to send him to high school!)

Five of my favorite snack foods:

1. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

2. Chocolate

3. French bread w/ olive oil and balsamic vinegar to dip it in.

4. Chocolate :)

5. Chips and guacamole (homemade)

Five Songs I know all the lyrics to:

1. Blessed by Elton John (it has kind of become my adoption song)

2. I am totally pathetic, but I know alot of songs but not all the
lyrics to any of them.

3. The National Anthem (I am so desperate I copied Danielle :)

4. Do nursery rhymes count?

Five things I would do with a million dollars:

1. Set up a scholarship in my brother's memory.

2. Buy a vacation home.

3. Travel with my family to Australia, Greece and Africa
(my boys would love a safari adventure.)

4. Donate

5. Open up my own little boutique.

Five bad habits:

1. My boys would say recently it is blogging.

2. No self-control when it comes to Chocolate.

3. Not drinking enough water (Lori I had to copy this one from you,
my husband is on me all the time to drink more water!)

4. I always leave the car on empty so my husband will have to put
gas in, I hate pumping gas!

5. Collecting shoes:) I personally don't think it's a bad habit,
but my family thinks I go a little overboard :)

Five things I like to do:

1. Craft - I used to be a big scrapbooker, but now those are all
way behind. Lately, I enjoy making cards, paper cones,
decorations for holidays.

2. Read - Right now I love reading anything related to China culture and history.

3. Shop

4. Get a pedicure

5. Shop

Five things I will never wear again:

1. Feathered hair

2. Plastic shoes (remember Jellies?)

3. Headbands (Olivia Newton-John "Physical")

4. Anything rainbow

5. Hair scrunchies

I tag Jennifer, Joanne, and Marina.


  1. Thanks for all the good wishes! I will try to get my list together - but my head is in the clouds :)

  2. Hey we have the same favorite foods! Especially the chocolete!! Thanks for the tag, I'll get working on it!

  3. You were BUSY.

    I think it's great that you collect shoes. It shows you have an interest and can commit to something (or at least that's what you can tell people).

    I'll bet you know all the lyrics to lots of Christmas songs. Those count you know.

    I'd love to own a little boutique, or ideally I'd open up my own company.

    Hope you enjoyed doing this meme.


  4. Too funny, I remember when rainbow was very cool and I had at least 10 pairs of jellies!

  5. Can someone tell me how to refer to someone in my post, and have it be able to link you to their blog. I have seen everyone else do it, but I cannot figure it out!


  6. Great list Dawn, I enjoyed learning more about you! I was laughing about the "anything rainbow"...couldn't agree with you more!

  7. Dawn, you cut/paste your link from the other site and then go back to your post and hightlight the word you want "linked" and then click on the "green ball and chain link" that's up above (in the post box) between the text color choices and the alighn left. A little box will come up and you just "paste" or right click into that. Does that make sense? Let me know if not, I'll be glad to help. I just learned recently too, had to ask Miss Danielle!
