I got Tagged.. Twice!

10 Years ago
I was just finishing up the last semester of my eighth grade. Something you probably didn't know was I was actually expelled from school this semester so I was kind of home-schooling.. myself. I also hung out with my 5 year old brother a lot. But I would say that what I was really up to was a lot of CHANGE. I was finally learning from my mistakes, changing friends and really growing up and gaining a real testimony for the first time.

5 Things on my to do list
Transform our messy office into a beautiful baby room
Get my visiting teaching done
Finally mend all of John's ripped jeans
Organize my pictures for scrap booking
Read the Old Testament

5 Snacks I love
bell peppers with cream cheese
granola bars

5 Places I've lived
Cedar City, Utah
Ogden, Utah
Kingman, Arizona
Flagstaff, Arizona
Albuquerque, New Mexico

What would I do if I suddenly became a Billionaire
Travel.. and take my family (the Shupes) with me. I would also get John a plane and a sailboat, be a stay at home mom, open a hot-sprins spa/bed and breakfast (like 10 Thousand Waves in Sante Fe), and build multiple summer homes (close to family, in Vallecito Colorado, Hawaii, Hava Supai, Cinque Terra Italy... and other beautiful summer places)

5 Jobs I've had
Office assistant for a Podiatrist (foot doctor)
Financial Aid Assistant at NAU
Computer Lab Aide at NAU
Dairy Queen (for one day! I hated it!)
Dental Hygienist

7 Things you probably don't know...random/weird facts about me :
(this one covers both people that tagged me) :)

1. I am notorious for doing way too many things at once. I'll have a few hours and start seven projects, getting nothing really accomplished and sometimes making an even bigger mess!

2. I love to buy books. I have shelves full! I love to buy them but don't have or really make the time to read all of the books I have! And it takes me so long to get though a book because I am seriously reading like 8 books right now..I'll just read them a little here and there. I keep saying that someday I'll read them all!

3. I am actually kind of nervous about being a mom. I have always imagined it and known I have wanted to be a mother.. but of course never pictured how I would be.. who would be my husband.. what would I be like.. and now that I am here I feel like I don't know what the heck I am doing and I'll be this awkward person who is supposed to nurture and raise a child when I cannot even take care of myself!

4. This is similar to the book thing.. but I love buying scrap booking supplies even though I haven't actually completed a scrapbook page in probably more than two years.. I will get better about that though! I have committed myself to scrap booking for my daughter so she (and I) will have her life documented.

5. I become so much more dramatic and whiny (woe is me exaggerations) around John. We actually both do it to each other.. pouty lips and all.. and at our institute class we just learned that this is a form of abuse through manipulating your couple to give you sympathy.. haha. we'll keep doing it I'm sure!

6. I LOVE Spring and Summer... I seriously get soo excited this time of year when it starts to warm up and start planning summer hiking and camping and road trips. It's like I become alive again. I would never work a day at all in the summer if I didn't have to. I would have picnics and take naps in the sun everyday instead.

7. I have always wanted to be a runner. A really good, fit, avid runner. I really wanted to do cross country in high school, but was afraid to push myself that hard. I've wanted to run marathons but have never pushed myself to do the training.. but I have ran enough to know the runners "high" and still want to be runner. But why don't I do it? Why don't I push through the hard miles and finally loose my extra weight and become this awesome, addicted runner? I guess I am lazy.. and would rather take naps in the sun.

Now I tag: Bob, Rachel Jensen, Niki, Becky and Kami

I think we are long lost sisters when it comes to #4 and #7...it's like you took the words right out of my mouth. Also, when did you live in Ogden? Nate goes to Weber and we used to live in Washington Terrace, so you'll have to tell me all about your Ogden Days.

Hey Angela, You are soooo pregnant! I love it. I can't believe you are going to be having a baby soon. You look great. I hope I look as beautiful as you when I'm there. Love you lots and miss you. :)
