I got tagged!!!

I got tagged! Can you believe it? I don't know why I am so excited about this, maybe its because I don't get out much. Here goes---

What I was doing 10 years ago:

I only had one kid, we lived in Hooper, Utah in an old house we rented from the Stake. Weird, huh? We still slept in a full size bed and we had no dishwasher. I spent my days as a substitute teacher at Sandridge Jr. High in Roy, Utah, and spent my spare time making a lovely puff quilt for my bed.

5 things on my to do list today:

1. Take a shower and wash the sour milk smell off of me.
2. Write thank you notes.
3. Go to the store for diapers and milk.
4. Take a nap.
5. Bring in the trash cans.

Very exciting, I know.

Snacks I enjoy:

I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but I do really enjoy Grasshopper cookies and Stephen's Belgian Dark hot chocolate, but my FAVORITE snack is Cheese. I love artisan cheeses, so I am especially glad that my husband is in the dairy business. Some of my favorites include:
Dubliner Cheddar- it is so good and the salt crystals just add an extra something special. I also have a recipe for Dubliner Spread That they sell at Yokes in the good ol' Tri-Cities--So Yummy!
Fiscalini Bandage Wrapped Cheddar-literally one of the best in the world. Oprah is a big fan of it also. You know when you eat it that it is only made from the best milk from the healthiest cows milked in the cleanest parlors as they use DeLaval products:):) (That's my husband's company.)
Fresh Mozzarella cheese-I love it! It tastes a little bland at first, but then you figure out how to use it with fresh basil and tomatoes on crusty bread and in homemade lasagna and you think that you might die and go to heaven.
Rouge River Bleu-I never thought I would like Bleu cheese, but this one is fantastic! It is so creamy and delicious! There was an article about it in the Oct 2007 Country Living Magazine.
Seriously, go to a good cheese shop and sample everything. I am sure you won't be disappointed. Beechers has a cheeseshop at Pikes Place Market around the corner from the Inn at the Market. They also have a marvelous Flagship Cheddar Cheese.

What I would do if I became a millionaire:

I don't really know, besides pay off cars and houses etc. I would probably go on vacation, but I think that I would probably save/invest the rest. Isn't that boring? When I was younger I thought a million dollars was so much money, but now that I am older and live in California, I realize how fast it could go. Although I certainly wouldn't turn it down, it just doesn't excite me like I would think it would. How is that for Cynicism?!!

Three Bad Habits:

1. I stay up way too late.
2. I say a few bad words and play dumb when my kids say them:):).
3. I am a procrastinator.

5 places I have lived:

Only 5????? Most recently--

1. Turlock, CA
2. Kennewick, WA
3. Payson, UT
4. Nampa, ID
5. Crescent Valley, NV aka He_ _.

5 jobs I've had:

1. Odd jobs at Realife Photography
2. Phone girl at Pizza Hut
3. Media Lab at Ricks College
4. Day Care worker
5. I sold Salt City Candles

5 things people don't know about me:

1. I've never had a cavity.
2. Sliver removal is a passion of mine.
3. I can unwrap a starburst inside my mouth.
4. I won second place and $15 in a handwriting contest in High School. That darned Pheng Siharath won first place.
5. My feet don't get sweaty so sometimes I wear the same socks two days in a row. Don't tell.

OK. Now I tag Sara, Josie, Tsveti and Kari. Josie, now you will have to update your blog!

your 5 things people don't know about me...hilarious! You do have fantastic penmanship. Thanks for commenting on my tag as well. Oh the car rides from Rexburg to Kennewick together. Remember when we drove in your hey..(was it even yours?) blue Nissan box and your wedding dress took up the entire car. To top it all off...I got my very first ticket driving into Rexburg at like 2:00 a.m. cause you were too tired to drive..yea, that was sweet, infact I could see the exit from where the nice officer pulled me over. To this day I can't hear the song "Smooth operator" by Sade which was serenading my stop, and not think of that early morning wake up call courtesy of the Rexburg Police. -Good times! xo- Kari
