I was tagged today by Julia B. at Marmalade Kiss AND by Sue at My Home WellingtonTown a while back so I guess before I leave for vacay, I'll leave you with random reading material...

1. What was I doing ten years ago?
Let's was 1998. I was 23 & living in Scottsdale, Arizona with my parents. (Long story, don't ask.) I had met Mr. WhiMSy love (who wasn't "Mr. WhiMSy love" yet) 2 months prior, so we were hanging out every single day (until we married 10 months later). It was a super fun time in my life--hanging with my favorite guy in the whole world, chillin' by the pool, enjoying relaxing days, tan & fit, living a really sweet life.

2. 5 things on my to do list for today...
2-Finish laundry!
3-Clean the house!
4-See my baby twin nieces in the hospital!
5-Make some skullie & cupcake tees for my niece & nephew that we'll see in Arizona.

3. Snacks I enjoy...
Ice cream, watermelon, italian sodas, lime & chile flavored almonds...just to name a few.

4. Things I would do if I was a billionaire...
I think I would do the usual things most people would do: Pay off all my family's bills/debts, buy new homes & cars for my fam, pay off all my debts, etc, donate to a charity, travel, save lots...& then I'd start my own brick & mortar WhiMSy love store, open a little deli (something Mr. WhiMSy love has always wanted to do), roller skate every day, start a sticker collection, & hire a maid, chef & personal trainer!

5. Places I've lived...
Anacortes & Richland WASHINGTON, St. Petersburg FLORIDA, Luling LOUISIANA, Fayetteville NORTH CAROLINA, Virgina Beach VIRGINIA, Scottsdale & Phoenix ARIZONA, Quebec CANADA.

6. Six jobs I've had...
1-A bagger at a grocery store (my first real job)
2-Then, I advanced to CHECKER!
3-Oh gosh, I worked at McDonald's AND Burger King.
4-Guest clerk at a hotel
5-I managed a little pottery painting studio--SUPER fun!
6-My last job was as a floral designer & then I became a full-time mommy.

7. Seven Random Facts About Me...
1-I have always thought it would be fun to be on a game-show. (My faves were 'Price is Right' or 'Wheel of Fortune'. But now I'm thinking 'Deal or No Deal'.)

2-My hubby & I are on the cover of a book. (No, not a Harlequin Romance...)

3-Have you ever been to a P.F. Chang's restaurant? Well, my cousin & I once tried to climb one of the horse statues that sit outside the restaurant late one night. We needed a ladder- they're too tall.

4-I love watermelon flavored candies & orange, purple, yellow & green jellybeans, Reese's Pieces & peanut butter cups.

5-One of my favorite songs of all time is by George Michael--One More Try. Mmm...I love it!

6-A dream of mine is to someday go to The World's Longest Yard Sale. It spans over 4 states, beginning in Kentucky & ending in Alabama, & includes 450 miles of scenic backroads FILLED with an on-going yard sale heaven!

7-"The Gremlins" movie messed me up as a kid. I have never been so scared in the dark as that time in my life.

Ta-ta my little WhiMSy love-ers! I'll miss you tons but see you soon!
