1. What were you doing 10 years ago?
Holy cow 10 years ago I was 17 and to be honest that was the hardest part of my life, but also sent me on a journey of getting closer to our Heavenly Father. I was bouncing around different foster homes because my father had died suddenly from a massive heart attack and my mother disowned me. I had applied to BYU with high hopes of getting in and I did! I was Vice President at my High School and I was on the basketball Team.

2. Five things on your to do list today:
- Eat food :)
-Go for a walk with the family
-Check all my buddies blogs
-Write in my journal
-Wash the dishes after dinner

3. Snacks I enjoy:
-String cheese
-Apples
-Whole wheat crackers
-Peanut butter toast

4. What would I do if suddenly I were a billionaire?
-Set up some high yield return accounts for retirement and my kids mission/college
-Buy a home in a safe neighborhood in Los Angeles
-Do some "Big Gives" for local shelters, at risk schools and pet shelters
-Donate to Humanitarian Aid
-Help my friends and family

5. 3 bad habits:
-Not hanging up my jacket, I often put it on a chair.
-I pull the covers off of Josh almost every night because I twist and turn way too much.

-I listen to Christmas music all year round (drives Josh crazy)

Tricia said...

Great post, Jen. I didn't know so much about you--but I can add that you make a mean banana bread. :)

How are things going for you and Josh in CA?

Becca said...

That is so cool about the Muslim club, but sucks about the anti-Mormon club.

Are you still a web developer at home? Thanks for tagging. I was tagged a month ago, but maybe I'll encourage Ivan to post his tag... (actually that is a good idea) hopefully it will happen this week.

Megan said...

Gay!

Leith said...

I didn't know that you were VP at Granada. Well, I talked to Perla last week and she told me that you had moved to Cali. Maybe we will see you this summer.
