Random Memories

What I was doing 10 yrs. ago: I was 16, just finished with my Sophomore year of high school, which was my first year on the volleyball team. I think I was probably working at Western Watts with Natalie and playing all sorts of pranks on our supervisors and stealing candy from the closet downstairs!

5 yrs. ago: I was 21, and very busy secretly planning going on a mission. I was living in a BYU ward and just working with my bishop there to get everything all taken care of. I think it was in June actually that I got my mission call, which is when my parents found out I was going on a mission. It was awesome!! Sometimes my mom would just burst into tears randomly because she was so worried about me living in the Philippines (and for good reason). I don't know how I survived it. But I sure miss it now.

1 yr ago: I was celebrating my 1-year anniversary with Brandon at the Little America in Salt Lake. Other than that, I was still in the same job and so was Bran. I think the only thing that was different was that we were living in Jason and Shannon's basement.

Yesterday: I worked all day and then hung out at home and pretended to help Brandon put up a little brick retaining wall in our front yard. Then I was totally bugged at some people who came and tried to sell us a $2000 Kirby vacuum. After that we went to keep Tara company for a little while before we all went to bed.

Today: I am excited it's Friday! I'll probably end up leaving work early and tonight we get to babysit Haley! We're taking her swimming tomorrow and we're so excited about it.

5 favorite snax: Airheads, starburst, skittles, jelly bellies, and I actually do like real fruit too. :)

5 favorite books: I don't read much these days but I did like the Twilight series. When I was little it was Nancy Drew and the Boxcar Children.

5 places I would love to run away to: The beach, the Philippines, Australia, Hawaii, any nice resort with a pool.

5 bad habits: Forgetting EVERYTHING I need to do, eating too many treats, being lazy with flossing, going to bed without washing my face, worrying too much.

5 things I would never wear: (you can hold me to this if I ever break down) Pointy shoes, skinny jeans, massive jewelry, high heels, long shirts with spandex underneath.

5 pet peeves: People who are late, people who don't do what they say they'll do, I really can't think of any more than those two.

5 things I like to do: Hang out with Brandon, sleep, go swimming, go on trips, have BBQs in the canyon.

5 favorite TV shows: The Office is about the only one I really care about.

I'm totally with you on the things you will never catch me wearing. Only a very select few can get away with it and so many try. Love the Twilight series. I'm in the middle of her new one "Host", pretty good but not as good and Twilight. Love the office. I remember sophomore volleyball, good times. I still think it's amazing that you pulled off surprising your family about your mission. Have fun baby sitting tonight, we really need to get together.

So I totally thought I hated pointed shoes, however I find myself searching for a good pair of them now. And Grant actually wants me to get some. The round ones just aren't doing it with the pants I wear to work right now. So...

Hey- I am so glad to hear that you guys put in that little retaining wall you were telling me about! I want to see it soon - I feel like I haven't talked to you guys for a while. Fun post Steph!
