Jules at Chic and Pink tagged me. Yay and thanks Jules, January is boring.

Here are the rules:

1. Answer 5 questions with 5 answers

2. Tag 5 other bloggers

Question #1 – What were you doing 10 years ago? I have day planner pages with everything I've done documented and I have tons of photos from 2000. Unfortunately, everything is buried in the townhouse garage so this answer is from memory. I considered fighting the junk and climbing on the Jeep Wrangler parked in the 1-car garage to access the boxes of photo albums and my day planner pages but it could get ugly.

1. On the infamous night of Y2K, I had dinner at the Kemah boardwalk with friends. Remember how the media said something bad was going to happen at the stroke of midnight and nothing happened? I was a little disappointed; at least the lights could've flickered to amuse us. Luckily I wasn’t one of the people who stockpiled canned goods and peanut butter. :) Since everyone was worried about staying out late, after dinner we went back to a girl’s apartment for movies and cocktails. That night I slept in tent, in her apartment on the living room floor. Oh my gosh… I so glad it’s 10 years later, I can't imagine doing that now.




2. I think that was the year I went on a cruise with my BFF Tiffany. I have so many photos from our trip in the garage. I wish I could post one.

3. I was offered a job as a sales rep with my company. I had a bad feeling about the position and I declined it. Four years later that position was completely eliminated.

4. My company initiated a huge project in 2000; I traveled every week. I kept a swimsuit in my suitcase and always rented a SUV with tinted windows. After work I changed into my swimsuit in the back of the SUV and hit the beach or the pool. I would NEVER do that today; I care too much about my skin. Also, I remember taking a nap in the back of an SUV rental in an Olive Garden parking lot in Florida. Classy, huh?

5. My favorite restaurant was Star Pizza in Houston. I really love pizza. I’ve had pizza in many cities, even Rome, Italy and Star is always a favorite.




Question #2 – What are 5 things on your To-Do list today

1. Work

2. Run a couple errands

3. Go to the gym, which is difficult. I'd rather play with razor blades in the middle of the interstate at rush hour.

4. Dinner

5. Watch the "most dramatic and scandalous episode ever" of The Bachelor.



Question #3 – What 5 snacks do you enjoy?

1. Hummus with pita bread and veggies

2. Diet Coke

3. Chips and Dip

4. Sugary Candy- jelly beans, gummi peach rings, etc...

5. Snow Cones





Question #4 – Where are 5 places that you have lived?

1. Houston, TX

2. Conroe, TX

3. Abilene, TX

4. San Antonio, TX

5. A multitude of hotel rooms across the U.S.




Question #5 – What are 5 things you would do if you were a billionaire? I’m really boring. I wouldn’t even quit my job.

1. Donate to church and charities

2. Save and invest

3. Sponsor tons of kids in China & sponsor volunteer trips to China orphanages for people interested

4. Hire a full time personal trainer. As you can see with my answer in question #2, I need help with motivation. My sis and I worked out with a trainer 2 weeks ago. Yikes, it was hard but awesome!

5. Re-decorate my house over and over and over

Heather said...

What fun! I am watching The Bachelor too. I also like sugary candy (skittles, sour jelly bellies, and sour patch kids are my favorites). Oh, and chips and dip, especially good salsa. Hard to beat queso too. Okay, now I am hungry! Have a good Monday.

Taylor @ Jimmy Choos and a Baby Too said...

You are SO funny!!! First of all, I loved your response to working out in the gym - I would say "I'd rather shove a fork in my eye"!

& I LOVE sugary candy too (so funny because it really mixes well with the not working out!) I love gummy bears and lifesavers and jelly beans! YUM!

Lauren Kelly said...

Loved this!!! Thanks for the tag :)

Jill said...

Fun, fun, fun! Thanks for tagging me. I can't wait to do this tonight!

Jules said...

I wanted to dig out some old photos for this tag too, but was being lazy. The boardwalk that you went to for NYE looks like blast. I remember waiting for something crazy to happen too. It was all very anticlimactic. I love the story about you traveling around in the SUV with your swimsuit. I’m a pizza lover too and that restaurant looks great!

I love what you wrote about going to the gym and The Bachelor should be interesting tonight. I always like to see what new drama they’re going to create each season on the show. I’m a sucker and I know it!

We would be such good snacking buddies, since we love the same things. I forgot about my love for Snow Cones…mmmm.

Great answers about what you would do if you were a billionaire.

Hi sweet Jill~

I'm FINALLY starting to check on people and read about their Christmas and New Year's. Oh my goodness...I started with yours and really am not sure how to top it. First, you are so beautiful! I hope that isn't weird to say but I just see the joy and your zest for life and it makes me smile.

I hope we can get together soon.

Love~
Lisa
