4 things

Kristin tagged me some time ago and I am finally getting around to answering the questions.

4 things I was doing 10 years ago:
  • Looking for a wedding photographer
  • Looking at wedding magazines
  • Planning to quit my not-so-glamorous software job
  • I'm sorry. I just can't remember back that far.

4 things on my to-do list today:
  • one load of laundry
  • 2 baseball uniforms ready for tomorrow morning
  • arrive at the consignment sale I have been working all week ON TIME
  • shop for 1/2 price items tonight

4 things I love about my husband:
  • That he is so helpful with the kids
  • His laugh - or more that he laughs at stuff a lot even though it isn't funny
  • He always loads the dishwasher (I should have put this one as #1)
  • He loves me a whole lot for no reason. (I had to make sure I added the last one because it is true and I hated to show so obviously that I am definitely an "acts of service" gal.)

4 jobs I have had:
  • Cracker Barrel waitress or as I like to remember it - Hell.
  • Admin to a Financial Planner that was going bankrupt. The madness.
  • Movie theater goddess and ticket taker.
  • Personal Financial Manager to a bunch of rich loonies. Have I mentioned that I quit this job?
4 movies I have watched more than once:
  • Pretty Woman. Pretty Woman. Pretty Woman. Pretty Woman.
  • When Harry Met Sally
  • Pretty in Pink
  • High Fidelity
This is the first 4 that came to mind. Movies I have already seen are my favorite kind. (can I add Urban Cowboy, Coal Miner's Daughter, Rudy, The American President and 16 Candles?)

4 places I have lived:
  • Alabama
  • A college apartment that might be considered a dump now, but was acceptable then.
  • A scary Atlanta apartment with non stop crying babies and shirtless men walking the parking lot with knives strapped to their belts.
  • My house I built with my husband going on 8 1/2 years now (that my 2 boys are tearing down room by room)

4 places I have been:

  • Austria
  • France
  • Alabama
  • Mexico

4 places I want to visit:

Nappa Valley
The Caribbean

4 shows I watch:

  • Lost
  • Friends
  • Big Brother
  • The Office

4 things you may not know about me:

  • I'll just refer back to this old post so you can see my dairy farm picture again. It is lovely.
  • I'm having trouble thinking of something. I already admitted that I collect pretty ribbon and do nothing with it.
  • I eat chocolate every single day. That isn't much of a shocker.
  • I got kicked out of 6 Flags when I was 14 or 15. I was mostly innocent.

4 people I tag:

Mary C & Mara even though they have private blogs

Oh, you make me laugh. I want to hear more about your jobs!

Thanks for picking me...check out the link from 08/25. :)

Angela said...

You are so funny, Lisa.
I am right there with you on The Office and eating chocolate every day. Also 2 of my favorite things.

Seriously- was the Atlanta apartment really that bad?!?! EEK!

Kristin said...

Yay! I'm glad you had a chance to answer it. I thought it would be easy, but then it took me a while to think of some of the answers. Not surprisingly, we not only have similar taste in TV shows but in movies, too. BTW...we haven't talked about the BB finale. What did you think??? (I don't wanna comment in case you haven't had a chance to watch it yet.)

Kristi said...

It was fun to read about you even more! Thanks for sharing! You do have a way of making ME laugh too! :-)

I eat chocolate every day too. It IS a food group, isn't it?? :-)

Amy Jo said...

I can't believe the movies you have seen more than once. Adult flicks? What about "Cars" "Finding Nemo" "Thomas the Tank" and "Potty Power"?? Those would be the first to come to my mind.

Mary C said...

Awesome! Thanks for tagging me!

I am totally an "acts of service" girl, too.

I'll try to do get this up tomorrow!

Kristin said...

So cool! The Google ad on your blog right now is for a photographer in the city where I live. I *wish* I could afford her! She is amazing. that Google ad only for me because I live in this area??? Is Big Brother watching me??? Now I am paranoid...

In all seriousness, I hope everything is okay on your end. I haven't heard from you in a while and that is not like you. Hope all is well! :)

Just Me... said...

I could have written your movie list for you! Every time Keith comes in and finds me watching one of those movies, he just shakes his head and moves on.

Oh, don't you just love mentioning the Six Flags thing? People can't believe it when I tell that story. What rebels we were. LOL!!!
