E is for Et Cetera

E is for Et Cetera - a few random facts about me, thanks to a tag from Missy.

What was I doing ten years ago?

It was the summer before my last year of college. I was working 50+ hours a week in a biology lab and 10+ hours a week cleaning houses, trying to save money to go to Argentina (even though I didn't know at the time that was where I was going.)

What was I doing one year ago?

We were living in California, Ryan was finishing up his dissertation, Baby N was really a baby - 3 months old, and we were preparing to move, but we didn't have anywhere to go - kind of stressful.

5 snacks I enjoy...

1. half a peanut butter sandwich on bran bread
2. anything chocolate
3. a tall glass of cold Crystal Light Fruit Punch
4. watermelon
5. toast

5 songs I know all the words to...

I'm skipping this one - I can't think of any that I know off the top of my head except for children's songs. My memory is so terrible - especially when it comes to non-essentials.

5 things I would do if I had a million dollars

1. Buy an old house and remodel it.
2. Fulfill all of my fabric dreams!
3. Fund several small loan projects.
4. Join a gym (I really need to do this and I use the cost as an excuse/reason not to.)
5. Share the the joy with my family - gifts for everyone!

5 of my bad habits...

1. Not cleaning up after myself - this has been my plague since childhood - ask my mom!
2. Saying Ummm...
3. Not flossing - though after my four recent cavities, I am making great improvements in this area.
4. Chocolate
5. Not doing things for myself that I should - like exercise, take time for myself, etc.
Most of my bad habits are not having good habits, does that make them better?

5 things I like doing...

1. thrift shopping
2. Crafting/sewing
3. trying new recipes.
4. Vacuuming - really I find this so satisfying since I have kids who drop stuff all over the place. It's so nice to go from dirty to clean in just a few minutes.
5. Talking to Ryan - I love to hash things out with him. I know sometimes he wonders if I will ever leave him be, but secretly he loves it!

5 things I will never wear again...

1. neon
2. denim jumpers
3. pegged jeans
4. leg warmers - I know they're coming back, but I just can't do it!
5. feathered bangs

5 of my favorite toys...

1. my sewing machine
2. my ipod
3. my laptop
4. my remote unlocking car doors (love these with the kids!)
5. any sort of bath additive - bubbles, salts, soaks - I love a good bath!

Nice facts! Ugh, leg warmers! I didn't even like them the first time around! My mom used to make me where them to the bus stop in high school so I'd be warm. They were fuzzy and purple - awful! Can't say I'm a big fan of leggings, either and those seem to be making a comeback as well.

Jessi, these ABC's are such a clever idea! And I'm with you on only knowing children's songs!
