Once Upon A Time....

Ten years ago I was: 14. My goodness, that is insane. I was about 1/2 done with my first year of High school! That means, I was in Latin club, drama club, Model UN, and S.A.V.E./S.A.D.D. clubs. I was happy with my friends, my life... everything.

Five years ago I was: 19! I had just gotten baptized a year ago. I graduated and moved to an apartment in Apex. I was totally stupid and I enjoyed every second of it. I probably made some pretty sill decisions... but, don't we all.

One year ago: I was avoiding Dan and trying to get someone elses attention. I blew Dan off when he invited me to Carowinds... a month later, I finally said yes. Interesting -- only a little of a year has past since he wouldn't leave me alone.

My to-do list: Make plans for Charlotte, I like to plan ahead. Wash the laundry, take a test for my online class, by season passes to Carowinds (I mean, why not -- we'll live only 30 mins away) and figure out what was for dinner.

Bad habits: Me? Bad Habits? Okay, seriously, I stay up late -- and get up early... only getting about 5 or 6 hours of sleep a night. I am horrible to argue with because I am always right, I frequently make to many plans which causes Dan and I to be completely rushed on the weekends. There are more - -but, that's enough.

I enjoy: long walks in 67-73 degree weather, slushies/icees, pasta, pizza, waking up in the morning and not rushing out of bed, staying home and watching movies with Dan, my kitten (who is getting so big), little kids and spending time with my family (that includes Dan's family as well).

If I suddenly got a billion dollars I would:... pay for our school, buy a house, 2 cars, pay of my parents bills, build an orphanage, start a family..... save money for my children... you know, the important things. :)

Places I've lived: Weirton, WV., Holly Springs, NC, Fuquay Varina, NC, Apex, N.C., Cary, N.C., North Raleigh, NC., and Raleigh, N.C.

Things you might not know about me: I hate being along -- even at night when Dan is working -- I dislike it. I get startled very easy. I am scared to death that Dan and I wont be able to have kids and if we do they will be kids with special needs. I want to get my PhD one day. I want to open an orphanage. I want to travel to Poland. I want to serve a mission. I want people to experience joy -- because only then will good things happen.
