I read this meme at JMom’s blog and thought I’d play along. I haven't done a meme in awhile and thought this was a little different. You can play too.
What were you doing 10 years ago?I was attending Simpson College (now University--they changed after I graduated. Hmm.) It was my last year before graduation and I was throwing down hints to my boyfriend of three years to hurry up already and propose so that I can start planning (I am a dream planner).
He did propose about 2 months later! And, we married 9 months after that! :-)
That summer I worked as hostess/event planner for all of the programs or events that would take place on the college campus that Summer. I was able to work along side of my future husband, which was a lot of fun. We did a lot of things together and we were always around each other through most of our dating career.

To Do List
I love a to-do list - mainly to try to keep myself organized. I write a lot of list all the time---over and over again. Because I think it is helping me get sorted in my brain and organized. My husband makes fun of me because I am constantly making lists of some kind. Party planning to grocery shopping to things I want to do in a year...etc. Lists I love them!
1) Get some sort of breakfast for the girls (Today ---cereal)
2) swim lessons for the girls followed by swimming out in the big pool with me!
3) Farmer's Market
4) Safeway grocery shopping
5) Create lunch for the girls and I....fish sticks?
7) Email reminders to Ric to call the Bug Spray Guy for some pesky ants
8) Start on clearing off my desk!
9) Book Time Picnic style
10) Make Brownies with the girls
