Getting good at the tagging game..

Here comes another tag compliments of Shelley....
What was I doing 10 years ago?
My freshman year at BYU with Mindy as my roommate, living in Heritage Halls, and enjoying college life!
What are 5 things on my to-do list today?
1. Go for a walk (wards off depression)
2. Take Jacy for her nine-month checkup (a month or so late)
3. Work
4. Take Daxton for a bike ride
5. Figure out what to have for dinner.......sigh
Five snacks that I enjoy?
1. Roasted red pepper and tomato soup (organic) with pretzel sourdough nibblers in it.
2. Low-carb sandwich wraps.
3. Lifesavers wintergreen mints and sugar-free jolly ranchers.
4. Sour patch kids and sweedish fish
5. Chocolaty-chip teddy grahams
Places I've lived
Utah (Sandy and Logan), Nebraska, Florida, London
5 things I would do if I were a billionaire
1. Pay off debts
2. Buy a house
3. Buy Ben a plane
4. Further my education
5. Try to live my life like I WASN'T a billionaire
(oh yeah, and give to charity and all that good stuff...)
Now I'm going to vary from the tag format and create one of my own:
5 of my Quirks/pet peeves
1. Milk carton expiration dates. I love to buy milk cartons with meaningful expiration dates on them, i.e., my birthday, anyone in my family's birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, etc.
2. Dirty microwaves. Gross. Admitedly, my microwave is currently not up to par, but seriously, how gross is it to open one up and see gunk all over from past microexplosions?
3. Syrup-smelling children. It completely grosses me out when little kids eat syrup for breakfast and then smell like maple for the rest of the day. Granted, eggo waffles are a favorite of my kids, and Jacy is the queen of getting syrup all over her hands and then rubbing it into her hair. I do my best to wipe her down and get it all off, but the end result is usually that she smells like maple, and it grosses me out.
4. Children with dirty fingernails. Gross. Having a calling in the nursery, I see a lot of these. I know it's not easy to get your kids to sit still enough to clip their fingernails, and I know there comes a point where something like this gets put low on the priority list, but I guess, for me currently, that's just one of those battles that I choose to fight. Well, in all honesty, it's a designated responsibility of Ben's currently, so I guess I should say it's a battle that I choose to have him fight. Regardless, I just want to vomit when I look at a kids' fingers and see a thick layer of dirt in each nailbed. Yikes!
5. Smelling gasoline. I really like the smell of gas. I like filling up the car and standing outside at the pump breathing in the air full of gasoline fumes. Weird? Yeah, I guess so.
