Tags Come at Just the Right Time

My new goal (since conference) has been to blog only when my kids are in bed.  That is probably why I haven't updated as much because I usually don't find the time anymore.  My kids are loving it but my blog has suffered (hey, at least I have my priorities straight...kind of)
But really, our lives haven't been too cool especially with this awful, yucky, poopy, crappy, stupid, dragged out COLD WEATHER!!!
My sister-in-law Erica posted a tag that I liked so I thought I'd play along.

20 years ago - 1988

  • I was 10 years old and in the 4th grade.  
  • I got my first bra and was mortified to wear it.
  • I had my first "real" boyfriend.

10 years ago - 1998

  • I graduated from Dixie College.
  • I got my braces off:)
  • I was living with the love of my Grandpa Ralph.
  • I too had my wisdom teeth removed
  • I was anticipating moving to Provo to attend the BYU!!

5 Years Ago - 2003

  • My little Janey Bug was born.
  • We served in the bishopric of a BYU singles ward.
  • I happily quit my job as a teller at Zion's Bank
  • We traveled to Pittsburgh to visit my sister.
  • We bought our first car together, a VW Jetta. (and got in 2 accidents by the first 2 months we had it)
  • Brett was fired from Kinkos in my 8th month of pregnancy. (it later was a blessing in disguise)

1 Year Ago - 2007

  • We moved into our first house.
  • I was 6 months pregnant with little Aly.
  • Brett and I visited Washington DC.

6 Months Ago - Fall 2007

  • Jane started preschool:)
  • Aly entered the 3 month fun stage of smiling and giggling.
  • I began walking/running and losing weight which has been so exciting.

So Far This Year - 2008

  • Brett turned 30!!
  • We have seen a tremendous increase in Tobe's vocabulary.
  • I have realized 3 children IS hard.
  • I am training for a 10k and actually enjoy running.

What is next for this year?

  • We are going to Brazil in October
  • Tobe will start his first year of preschool.
  • We are planning our first trip to DisneyLand and Jane cannot wait.
  • It will be the first FULL year that I haven't been pregnant since I started having's MY year!!

Anyone can join in with this fun tag.  It gave me something to blog about and it made me realize that 20 years ago was hard to remember.  I'm getting old!!

you feel old??? I'm older than you, girlfriend! So how does the tag thing work? I've seen a few on other blogs...I'm still learning about this stuff.

P.S. 10 years ago - we were in New York and I think it was in April, wasn't it? Crazy how time flies! I would LOVE to do another NY trip with you. I want to see Wicked soooooooo bad!

I was just getting ready to send you an email to ask what is up. I feel like it's been ages since I have heard from you- or atlest since you have posted anything. I'm so happy to hear that conference is helping you make life changes. Pres. Hinckley would be proud of a mother like you!! I always remember him saying at the end of conference that we should leave changed and wanting to be better.

About your post, wasn't that a fun tag? I am pretty young, but it really makes me think how much has happened in my life and in the last 20 years. Thanks for playing along!

I think it is great that you are only blogging at night. I know that in a few months, I too will be slowing down. It is good to have our priorities straight.

How fun to be planning a trip to Brazil!

Shauna said...

Fun post! It is fun to think back and remember good times. Brazil, wow.

20 years ago, you told Kami that your dad was going to Seattle and Kami asked, "Who's Attle?"
You were one cute little 10 year old!
