Megan made me do it :)

My dear old roommate Megan forced me to do this. She said if I did it, she would give me a million of her billion dollars (see below) (just kidding Mego...I think it's kind of fun)

1. What were you doing 10 years ago? Wow, I was in 8th grade...which is creepy because that's who I'm teaching now! So I was probably doing what they are doing now...being incredibly annoying and occasionally hilarious! I was still wearing braces and being awesome in track meets (ya right!)

2. 5 Things on my To-Do List Today...1. Go to Costco and buy food for our big enrichment/ Relief Society birthday bash on Thursday. 2. Fill my roommate Staci's bathroom up with balloons for her birthday. 3. Read a bunch of "Enna Burning"...a Shannon Hale book. I love those books. They're so cute! I only have the book checked out from the library for another 10 days! 4. Talk to Kristy on the phone for 45 minutes (okay, that wasn't exacly on my to-do list, but it happened!) 5. Find me a man! (That's on my list every day...one of these times it will happen) :)

3. What snacks I enjoy...chips and salsa!

4. What would I do if I were to suddenly be a Billionaire? Well of course I would start with roughly $1,000,000 in tithing, then I'd pay off my school loans and buy a car. Then I'd buy my parents a new refrigerator so they wouldn't have to keep it closed with a box of Tide anymore. I'd put some away to buy a house someday with a wrap-around porch and a porch swing. I think I'd give my siblings and my parents a good chunk of it. I would travel the world with my man that I am going to find (see question #2). Included in that are several trips to visit nieces and nephews! I'd buy an annual pass to Disneyland every year. I'd save money for my kids...but not too much! I want them to have to work for their college education...it builds character, and there is nothing wrong with living off rice, eggs, and pancakes for months at a time! I would want to donate money for scholarships for good students who try really hard but can't get perfect grades! There are a lot of other things, but I'd take the leftovers and boost the economy by shopping. :)

5. 3 Bad Habits...1. Procrastination!!! 2. Not putting stuff away as soon as I'm done using it. 3. Falling asleep during movies (I got that from my mom!)

6. 5 Places I've lived...this question always makes me feel lame. 1. Drummond, Montana 2. Provo, Utah. Yep, that's it! I don't have 5! So I can break it down into specific places where I've lived 2a--Liberty Square, 2b--Heritage Halls, 2c--Singletree, 2d--Middle Cambridge, 2e--Summerlyn

7. 5 Jobs I've had...1. Drummond Elementary summer janitor with Tessa (those were the good old days!) 2. Cotton Shop (quilt store) in Drummond 3. Receptionist/ Auditor/ Secretary/ Materials Room/ Administrative Assistant at BYU Comprehensive Clinic (ya, I could pretty much get all 5 of my jobs from that place! I did it all!) 4. Lab Instructor for beginning clothing class at BYU, 5. Teacher at Timberline Middle School

8. 5 Things People Don't Know About Me...I'm kind of an open book. 1. I'm the teacher representative for our school's PTA (yep, my life isn't that exciting) 2. I talk in my sleep. 3. I once had a dream that Joey from NSync kissed me (this was back in high school) 4. I share a birthday with Harry Potter (okay, you probably already knew that), 5. I color code my closet.

This is the part where I'm supposed to tag 5 people to do this. I don't really know how many people check this, so how about if you see this, just do it if you feel prompted to do so :)

I loved to read a little bit deeper into your life, Shannon! I never knew you color coded your closet and I definitely missed out on the kiss from Mr. NSync! You have some explaining to do! Love you, Cherilyn

I'm sick of working so I'm going to take your challenge and pretend that you tagged me :) - it just might take me a few days to complete though! haha!

You are funny Shannon. Let me just say that I had a smile on my face the whole time I read this. I learned something new about you! First of all, we are so the same on a few things. But guess what else? I've always wanted a wrap around porch with a porch swing too! There are a few really cool ones here in Alpine that you need to see. If you ever come and visit me again :) we'll go on a drive!

Even my blog messages are long! :)
