I've been tagged for a new Meme by Susie. One that is right up my alley as I have written a few of the emails Canape says inspired her to start this Meme.

Here's the deal. Think back on the last 15 years of your life. What would you tell someone that you hadn't seen or talked to for 15 years? How would you sum up your life?

You get 10 bullet points. A list of 10 things to summarize you. At the end of your list, tag 5 more people and send on the love.

So 15 years ago was 1993, and I was "barely 17 and we were barely dressed," oh wait, that was Meatloaf. I was 23 in 1993 and a brand new college graduate and madly in love. (look how sneaky I am getting 3 things in before my 10 points)

* Moved to my parents home in Texas, saved a piddly amount of money and moved back to Florida to be with Brian all within the first 2 months of 1993.
*Got married to Brian in 1994. We will be celebrating 14 years in July.
*Served my time in Retail Management.
*Bought and sold our first house, all 1,000 sq. ft. of it.
*Bought and sold an awesome boat. Swore one day we will buy another one.
*Had 2 babies. The girls, Breanna and Brooke Marie, are now 9 and 5.
*Quit the paid work force 9 years ago, and never looked back.
*Built our current house, in a nice family neighborhood, with a fun community pool and good schools (through high school) within walking distance.
*Bought a mini-van & sold the mini-van! It never felt like my car, just not a good fit. Now we are an all KIA family. I drive a Rondo and Brian has a Spectra.
*Brian tried but he could not fight the animal lover in me. Somewhere along the way he allowed us to adopt many little critters into our family. Currently we have a 14 year old black lab, 4 little degus (gerbil like animals) and a fluffy little girl chinchilla.

Wow, 10 points already. Okay, I guess that about covers it then. Now I'm supposed to tag 5 people.
So of course I'm hitting up Drama who's been slacking lately.
And Star, because I don't want her to feel left out! She can thank me later.
I'm adding Kira Joy, because I want to find out how she ended up in that fun family of hers and her posts make me laugh.
And two more fellow Floridians I'd like to know more about Domestic Spaz
and Suz.

On a related note, we have a friend who is going to be on The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. He is an old friend, as in, "Hey I need some photos from way back, before digital. Do you have any?" Do I have old pictures?! Man knew who to ask that's for sure. So while I was digging through the basket I hit the mother load. Oh, you all are in for some fun. I know ya'll can hardly wait. So, here's a taste of upcoming posts I am planning: The Big Squall: The Day We Almost Died, Pregnancy: Old School Style, and of course on June 26th will be The Wedding Party: Big Hair Included.


yeah, I guess you have a lot of critters!

Damn! I am going to miss the Wedding Party one until I get home. We are coming to FL sans laptop.

Speaking of, we need to figure out what day might be good for crazy internet dinner :)

Man...I am thinking of my points right now. How do I update someone I knew when I was 9? Do I add the major landmarks (I graduated) or the more personal (well, my body started going through changes)? I'll try to balance the two.

Oh look, I'm leaving a comment on the right blog and everything! Thanks for doing this - We have the 14 years of marriage in common, as well as the the year we became parents.

Are you saying that you know Canape as well? Small, small world.

And here is the answer to your question:
My sons are named after Rory's boyfriends - but only in the blogoshpere. The funny thing is, their personalities do match their make-believe namesakes. Dean is sweet and brooding, Jess is philosophical and somewhat rebellious, and Logan is devilish.

Thanks for reading!

Oh thanks for tagging me. I am feeling the LOVE. I hope I do you proud. Loved reading yours...sounds like you have been a busy bee too.

June 16, 2008 at 9:46 AM  

And it's up.
