I've Been Tagged!

For the first time I have been tagged by Sarena and JennyGirl.

The Rules:
Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 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 your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1. What I was doing 10 years ago:

I was a stay at home Mom of two wonderful children. My oldest just finished her first year of high school. My youngest was 9 years old. 1998 was my first year in the professional quilting business. I had a great first year in business. I was having a blast tearing up the horseback riding trails with one of my closest friends. We packed up our horses and rode a different trail at least once a week that year.

2. What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):

Go to the gym and work out.

Clean the entire house.

Work on my quilted post cards for my swap.

Do some laundry.

Go see a movie with my daughter.

3. Snacks I enjoy:

Hmm, My all time favorite is popcorn! The kind you make on the stove with olive oil and lots of salt! My other fav is cookies. Since February I haven't had much of either!

4. Things I would do if I was a billionaire:

Tithe to my church first! Seed into other Christian ministries around the world. I would love to buy another home in a warm climate. Pay off all of the debts of ours and our families. Of course my husband and myself would retire and spend time traveling the country. We would have to visit every quilt shop and knitting store!
I could go on and on......

5. Places I have lived:

Not very exciting. I have lived in Northern Illinois almost my entire life. When I was 12 we sold our suburban home near Chicago and moved to a dairy farm in Marshfield Wisconsin. We milked 35 cows twice a day everyday for one year. It was very hard work! My parents sold the farm and moved back to Illinois. Farm life was not for them. I loved living and working on our farm. I am not afraid of hard work!

I will tag Threadbender, MountRobson, learningtobethankful, quiltersal, finnishwahine and woolwindings. I hope you want to play along. If anyone else wants to play too please be advised that you have been tagged too! I would love to meet you via our bloggs!

You sound like a very high energy person. I wish I were. Any one of your five things to do today list would probably be it for me for the day! ;-Þ

I agree with Renna. Sounds like you have a busy day planned.

LOVE those pincushions! They are just so bright and beautiful. I have a thing for pincushions, so was drooling over these.

So glad to have met you today!!!!
