HELP! I've been MEME'd!!

I am interrupting this regularly scheduled series to participate in a meme. I am actually honored to have Master Yoda tag me with this meme. If you have not had a chance to check out his blog then do so NOW! It is a daily read of mine.

So without further ado, here are my answers to this meme.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
10 years ago I was:
· 22 years old
· Teaching C&W dance, waltz and jitterbug
· A size 5 (SIGH!)

5 years ago I was:
· 27 years old
· getting my first tatoo
· a size 16 (SIGH!)

1 year ago I was:
· 31 years old.
· dealing with a lot of anger, hurt and bitterness regarding the separation of my marriage
· a size 18/20 (double SIGH!)

Yesterday I was:
· thanking God for my many blessings
· ready for 5:00 to spend the weekend with my daughter and not have to go to work the next day
· working on reconciling my marriage and kissing my husband (so nice!)
· a size 14 (YAY! headed in the right direction!)

5 snacks I enjoy the most:
· French fries (the big steak cut ones!)
· White Cheddar Cheeze-its
· Great Harvest cinnamon chip bread
· Sharp cheese
· frozen grapes (seedless of course)
· Bonus answer: Outback Steakhouse croutons (ain't no better croutons around!)

5 songs I know all the words to:
· Amazing Grace
· It is Well With My Soul
· Bring On the Rain
· Edelweiss
· Brown Eyed Girl
· (A bonus just for Master Yoda, Dolly Parton's #1 fan: I will Always Love You)

5 ideal places for running away to:
· Winter Park, CO for skiing and non-celebrity, non-nuveau-riche, laid back and relaxed atmosphere.
· New Orleans for fun
· Kansas City for visiting - they have some seriously cool stuff to do there
· MN/IA for family and relaxation
· The mountains of Colorado or New Mexico to just get away and enjoy the beauty of God's creation
· Bonus answer: Ireland/Scotland - never been there but have always wanted to!

5 items you will never see me wear:
· Piercings of any kind other than ear
· a tube top
· pants that are too tight like sausage casings. ok, anything that is too tight like a sausage casing.
· makeup like Christina Aguilera (tons o' blue eyeshadow, globbed on mascara and hooker red lipstick)
· horizontal stripes across my hips

5 biggest joys in my life:
· knowing that no matter what I've done in the past, I've been forgiven by God
· my daughter
· my family (inlaws included)
· great music, especially Celtic!!!
· finding time to actually sit and read a book uninterrupted (very, very rare)

3 favorite toys:
· my computer
· my digital camera
· tv and dvd player

Not tagging anyone on this unless requested. :)

Hey, Nic:

My whole family and I will be in Winter Park, CO for our annual family ski trip Feb. 6-10. If you're there then maybe we'll "run into" each other (figuratively) on Cranmer Cut-off. (Since it's one of your favorite spots...)

This is one of my favorite meme's because we get to know so much about the person writing. Great answers!

Great answers here, Nic. You love cheese just like I do.

What was that first tattoo you had? How many do you have?

Nic

Thank you for the information you sent about Karl Rove. I will look into it and write a story.

Thanks again!

Great answers, Nic.

It looks like you have the same problem I do - some of your favorite snacks run counter-productive to your goal of fitting into a smaller size! Why did God create French Fries to taste so good?! Why?!!
