TAGGED- 5 things

$8 yard sale bookcase with a bad blue paint job. Hopefully 2 cans of chocolate brown spray paint will give it a face lift. We need something to house all our cookbooks!

Ann-Margret tagged me to answer the following questions.... Maybe you'll learn something.

What was I doing ten years ago?

  1. I was getting ready to begin my senior year of high school!
  2. I had just purchased my first vehicle- 1992 Nissan pick up with a wooden tailgate.
  3. Attending my last county fair before I started college. I won grand champion steer and lamb.
  4. I started writing over 150 applications for grants and scholarships.
  5. I was throwing thousands upon thousands of hay bales. I was a good stacker. :)

What are 5 (non-work) things on my to-do list for today?

  1. Order my wedding photos. Hush. So what it was almost 2 years ago?

Tomorrow evening I will be drawing a name for this bag! If you missed the give-a-way, head on over and sign up. There will probably be another give-a-way next week too!


  1. I love reading these memes! I'm planning on baking cookies today as well! What a great find when thrifting....maybe I'll head out to the thrift shop today as well.

  2. Awesome bookcase! Since deciding to decorate LMJM's room in brown and pink, I've found that chocolate brown is one of my favorite colors!!

  3. I see you have taken the spray paint challenge. Well done grasshopper.

  4. Nice to learn more about you. I hope we see the finished bookcase. Love the design of it!


I absolutely delight in the fact that you would take the time to comment and continue a dialog on this blog! If you have an email linked to your comment, I do my best to respond. Thank you so much!
