I'm IT-I've been tagged!!

I was just tagged by Heather Ridge. So here we go!

10 years ago - I went to Bryant Intermediate School, spent 5 months in Brasil with my Vovô & Tia Marçia, My parents got divorced, I got my hair high lighted for the first time (only 3 times since)
5 things I would do if I was a billionaire - Pay off our house & buy one in a better neighborhood that had a library room & craft room, feel really good about the tithing & fast offering checks we would be cutting, Pay for Brian's school in cash, pay for everything in cash for that matter, set aside money for kids school and mission and not tell them so they still learn how to work, set aside money for us to go on a mission or two or three, live in such a way that no one would guess we were billionaires, invest, invest, invest & donate, donate, donate.
3 bad habits - staying up WAY too late, eavesdropping - I have really good hearing and sometimes I listen in on conversations, eating way too much sugar and not exercising enough to compensate (unless you consider lifting Cameron around all day enough)
5 places I've lived - Brasil, New York, Utah, Idaho, Illinois, Texas, Massachusetts (I know that was 7)
5 jobs I've had - Babysitter, Fabric store, I worked at a deli, Customer Service, Receptionist
Some things you may or may not know about me.- I am half Brasilian by blood (my Mom is from Salvador, Bahia) but have citizenship in Brasil & the US of course. I am 5th of 6 & the only girl. I lived in 30 houses/apartments by the time I was 16, had been to too many elementary schools to count, 1 intermediate school & 3 high schools. I have lived in 10 houses/apartments since then. I love to dance. I love reading. I collect children's books (I spent over $500 dollars on them the semester I had Children's Lit-book orders were my down fall). I am good at crafts but don't like starting projects because I am a perfectionist & I know it will take me forever. My first kiss was when I was 14- I don't know if it was Dec 31 '99 or Jan 1 '00 we were outside walking in very cold Illinois winter weather and not paying attention to the time & yes I know that I wasn't 16 yet. I have only kissed 4 guys, unless you include cheek kisses, if so there are way to many to count. I have been in a choir of some variety for as long as I can remember. I was writing a missionary when Brian & I started dating. My favorite colors are the colors of the Brasilian flag - blue, green & yellow. I love hiking & camping. I have broken 7 bones, one being the strongest bone in your body. I was hit by a car when I was 5. Brian & I were only married 2 months when we found out I was pregnant with Cameron.

I think that is a good list I am going to bed now.

Tag: Amanda, Heather A, Tiffany & anyone else that is at a loss of what to post in your blog today

Wow, that's all very interesting! Book orders are my downfall too - I think I have over 2000 children's books.

2000! Wow I am so jealous. Some people think I have an over zealous love for books, but I say there is no such thing.
