The "Then and Now" Meme

I'm bored and I've already cleaned the bathroom, so here I go:

10 years ago I was:
  • Finishing my Junior year of High school
  • Still getting used to living in a new state
  • Looking for a summer job
  • Crushing on ten million guys
  • Finishing unpacking from a short distance move

At my brother B's wedding in August of 2001 with my favorite cousin H
5 years ago I was:
  • Living in an apartment by myself
  • Dating a guy who is still one of my good friends
  • Meeting my friend J from a few posts back
  • Hooked on Myspace
  • Getting my Izzie-roo!

Izzie on St Patricks day when I first got her. She was sooooo tiny!
1 year ago I was:
  • Adjusting to being married
  • Adjusting to living in a new state
  • Working as a caregiver to the elderly
  • Getting ready to go to Oklahoma for the first time and meeting my adorable niece J for the first time.
  • Looking for a house with the Timmy
Timmy with baby J in April/May 2010. He's so good with babies.

Yesterday I
  •  Did laundry
  •  Cleaned the toaster oven
  • Played with Ellie
  • Cooked Dinner
  • Realized how boring I am.

Today, I
  • Patched a little hole in our bathroom wall
  • Cleaned under the bed
  • Cleaned out the fridge of old leftovers
  • Posted this blog
  • Again, realized how boring I am

5 songs I know all the words to
  • "La Vie Boheme" Rent
  • "Elephant Love Medley" Moulin Rouge
  • "O Holy Night"
  • "Gold Digger" Glee version
  • "1, 2, 3, 4" Plain White Ts (We considered this for our first dance, but T thought it'd be too hard to dance to. So, instead, we danced to Apocalyptica's "Nothing Else Matters": metal meets classical... just like the Timmy and myself.)

5 things I'd do with 1 million dollars
  • Bills
  • Charity (such as Life for a Child)
  • See how family/friends could use help
  • Travel
  • Get it in dollar bills and fill a swimming pool with it and swim around in it

5 favorite TV shows:
  • GLEE
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Modern Family
  • 30rock

5 biggest joys
  • My husband
  • My family
  • My dogs
  • My wonderful church family
  • You


  1. Oh, I love this post! So much wonderful info about you. By the way, you are not boring. I aspire to get around to stuff like cleaning the toaster oven, wait we don't have a toaster oven. I wouldn't clean it if we did. I am so boring that I respond to all of my blog friends post, does that get annoying? If you got a million dollars and filled a swimming pool with it, would you let others swim in the pool too? I think it would be funner to fill it with Jello or pudding. I can't believe you know all the words to La Vie Boheme, I know most of it, but some parts go too fast for me.

  2. What can I say? I love musicals!

    And my pool of money? I'd be happy filling it with pudding too, but, with money, you can still use it afterward. The pudding would be done.

    I love it when you reply my posts. It shows that somebody is reading. :)
