*I think I've already done this "tag" a few months ago, but here goes nothin'! :)
My sweet blogger friend, Kelli tagged me...

4 Things that I was doing 10 years ago:
1. Senior in High School
2. Dating Rob (little did I know he'd be my awesome, God-send of a husband)
3. Applying for 6 different colleges and got the most scholarship money from Greenville College in Illinois (which is where Rob was attending at the time).

4 things on my To-Do list for today:
1. Get Avonlea's pictures taken (3-year pics)
2. make a cheesecake for dinner guests tomorrow night
3. marinate BBQ chicken for dinner guests tomorrow night
4. Start making Grandparent's Day cards

random things I love about my husband:
1. No matter how grumpy I may be, he always finds a way to make me feel better and laugh and doesn't hold my grumpiness towards me.
2. He locks up our house at night, sets the alarm and turns out all the lights (It's weird, but I like it when he does this.)
3. He never hesitates to help out with family duties, house projects or simple tasks around the house (giving the kids a bath, cleaning up after we eat dinner, etc.). It's like he reads my mind that something needs to be done and he just does it.
4. Just being in his arms makes me feel so safe and loved!

1. student recruiter for Greenville College
2. MOM!
3. Taught preschool while going to college
4. Taught Middle School English

2. I keep a journal to each of my children. They will get it when they turn 18.
3. I can't stand idiotic drivers. The kind that don't go the speed limit or fail to turn on their blinker when turning. That kind!

I can't remember if I commented already or not.
Thanks for participating. I LOVE Friends. If I had the money I'd have the entire series on DVD! Cool about your MIL.
