I was tagged by one of my great friends Amanda who was tagged by her Mom.

Here's how the game works: answer the following 5 questions and then keep the game going by tagging 2 more people. Here goes...

1. What were you doing 10 years ago?

I was about a year into my first job at Southwest Airlines. I worked in the Marketing department and was learning so much about life in the "real world". I had a great boss and felt very fortunate for getting hired at this awesome company. I was also living in Dallas in The Village. Which was a huge apartment community where many young, working folks lived. I only had about a 30 minute commute to work. I was also dating the love of my life, Jim. He was still working and living in Denton at the time so we made the most of our weekends. We would also soon become engaged, planning the beginning of our lives together.

2. What are 5 things on your to-do list?

*Get our outfits coordinated for our upcoming family pictures.
*Get the boys clothes organized. Good-bye summer clothes, hello fall/winter clothes! I have to say this is one of my least favorite things to keep up with. I feel like every time I turn around, it's time to reorganize clothes, pack up Jacob's to save for Luke...pack up Luke's to give away or donate...pack up the "keepsake" outfits that I just can't part with. Never an easy task for me.
*Download music to the Ipod feature of my phone. Any good ideas for good music to exercise to??
*Print off recent pictures on Snapfish and put the last order I received in photo album.
*Pack up Halloween decorations and put out Thanksgiving/Fall things.

3. What are snacks you enjoy?

*Chocolate chip cookies, first and foremost!
*Ice cream- preferably light ice cream...not picky on the flavor as long as it includes some type of chocolate.

4. What are the places you have lived?

*Born in Tyler, TX
*Longview, TX
*Denton, TX
*Dallas, TX
*Lewisville, TX

5. What are 5 things you would do if you became a billionaire?

I would first thank my lucky stars because I don't see this in our cards! We would travel, travel, travel! I LOVE taking vacations and always have! Every time we go somewhere we always say how fun it would be to have a house there. I could see us buying houses all over so we could make the most of our travels! I don't think we would ever be at home! I would also donate LOTS of money to the Catholic Church, some for Autism research and some for Breast Cancer research. Those are the first 3 that come to mind but I'm sure there would be lots of other organizations that would join this list.

OK, well my game of tag is up! Kyla and Hedy, it's your turn.


  1. Katherine, those were so fun to read! I feel your pain about the clothes organization; I'm going through that myself. And you are so good with your household decor; I'll be lucky if I get any Christmas decorations out at all!

  2. I'm with you on the clothes changes, too. Not only the packing them away, but trying to stay one step ahead to make sure they have clothes that fit! And whenever I do go buy more, sometimes they're too small; sometimes they're too big. I'm a terrible judge of what will fit.

    Hey, when you buy all of your vacation homes, can I come visit you?

  3. Clothes organization? What's that? LOL! I need someone to do that for ME, thank goodness I don't have two more who need me to do that, too. =) I didn't know you were born in Tyler! Fun things to learn!

  4. Oh I'm right there with you on the buying vacation homes everywhere - how awesome would that be?! :)

  5. Chocolate chip cookies and vacation homes sound great!
