Who knew those quizzes that you get tagged for (or borrow from others) actually had a name? Yep...'meme' . So in honor of that, here goes...

What were you doing 10 years ago? I'd just gotten back from my college choir trip to Kenya & Tanzania. I am in denial that it's been 10 years...what an amazing trip.

What were you doing 1 year ago? Being pregnant...and loving it!

Five snacks you enjoy? Well, they're not snacks I'll be able to enjoy so much any more, now that I'm doing the FAB study, but I really like popcorn, swedish fish, m&m's, cheddar munchies (doritos, cheetos, sun chips and pretzels), and dulce de leche Hagen Daaz

Five songs you know all the lyrics to? Only five? Too hard to pick...I'll have to have an addendum on a later post.

Five things you'd do if you were a millionaire? Meet with a financial planner and set aside enough to earn some good interest somewhere, pay off my parents' debt, pay off my own debt, travel, donate

Five bad habits: Procrastinating, not keeping in touch with friends as much as I should, letting the laundry pile up, picking my cuticles, grinding my teeth when I'm upset

Five things you like doing: Hanging out with my family, scrapbooking, other crafty stuff, playing with my camera, watching movies

Five things you would never wear again: pinned and/or rolled pants, zubaz, hypercolor shirts, jumpers, tap shoes

Five favorite toys: Cabbage Patch Kids, Sit & Spin, Speak & Spell, Transformers, my scooter

I love to read other people's blogs. I don't know why, but I find it so interesting to get a glimpse into other people's lives. One that I found recently that is completely addictive and extremely hilarious is Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. I especially love some of the audio clips...I've laughed out loud.

What blogs do you go to on a regular basis? What keeps you going back?

This is my one little word for 2008. Something for me to remember, to hang on to, to proclaim throughout the year. So many ways for me to apply this to many aspects of my life...

seek: Christ. balance. creativity. opportunities. quality. health. motivation.

Things I'm going to work towards this year:

  • Carving out more time for daily study in the Word
  • Creating one scrapbook page per week (on average; 52 for the year)
  • A photo challenge - taking a self portrait every day for the whole year...nervous about this one!
  • Consistent workouts each week
  • Thinking more consciously about how to spend our family time together
  • Somehow staying motivated to make all of this work...guess that's why I said I'm going to work towards it.

Happy 2008 everyone...
