Five things

23 May

My blog friend Carrie tagged me to do this post about 5 things. So here I am!

The Rules:

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.

2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.

3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog.

4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

What were you doing 5 years ago? 

Five years ago, I had just finished my freshman year of college at the University of Minnesota. For the summer of ’03, I lived in a college house with 2 other girls and 2 guys (the guys moved out b4 the next school year and were replaced with girls).

A typical day for me was sleeping in/getting over a hangover, then laying out on the beach at either a lake up 35W North near Mounds View or at Lake Calhoun, trying to exercise outside (I was very out of shape at this point), then working at Herberger’s until closing, then coming home to party it up. The next day I did it all over again.

What are five things to do on your to do list for the day?

1. Survive work. 🙂

2. Enjoy the weather outside by either going on a run or a walk.

3. Spend time with my husband tonight.

4. Get time in the Word over lunch.

5. Cook dinner with what little food we have at our apartment. As my mom says, “It’s Mother Hubbard!”

What are five snacks you enjoy?

Do I have to choose just five?

1. Dried cranberries/raisins/fruit–too bad they’re so sugary!
