My Turn

1. If I had time, I'd spend 2 hours at the gym every day.

2. If you want to put me on edge, gulp whatever your drinking when your around me.

3. I've never read a Harry Potter book.

4. If you asked me when I was 8 years old what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have told you an Olympic diver (I used to take diving lessons).

5. If you asked me when I was in middle school what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have told you a jockey (I used to take horseback riding lessons.)

6. If you asked me when I was in high shcool what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have told you the CEO of Coca-Cola.

7. I now work in marketing of a company that does research in the healthcare IT industry.

8. I'm still trying to figure out what the healthcare IT industry is.

9. Both Brant and I keep spare sporks in our car glove boxes. Yes. Sporks. It seems that whenever we go through the drive through at Taco Bell (about once a week) 70% of the time they forget to put a spork in with my Pintos & Cheese and about 69% of the time we forget to check for a spork before we drive away. So we've both learned to keep sporks on hand at all times.

10. I wish people didn't use the phrase "I don't care." Even for small things. I think that really what they mean is "I don't want to bother myself with making that decision so I'm putting it back on you".Please, for Pete's sake- just make the decision.

11. I'm not a big fan of the word "tagged" - it's not like we're at recess. If you'll notice, I titled this post "My Turn".

12.. After my freshman year of college, I interned at Walt Disney World as a "Merchandise Hostess" (translation - cashier) and my roomate was Mickey Mouse at the Animal Kingdom.

13. The trend that summer in Orlando was Skydiving. Its quite exhilirating to be the last to jump from a plane and see all your friends take the plunge before you. I'd do it again- but only if someone else paid for it (its pretty pricey).

14. I served a mission in the Utah Provo; St. George Temple Visitor Center; German speaking mission.

15. No. I did not speak a lot of German. When Germans came through, they generally spoke better English than I could German.

16. I got my first job when I was 15 at a place called Stevi B's Pizza. Except there was so much dating and drama between all the high schoolers that worked there that we referred to it as Stevi B's 90210.

17. My favorite color is clear.

18. I'm a savvy shopper and have a coupon box with 160 different sections of coupons to prove it. However, don't get being a savvy shopper confused with being cheap. I can just get more for my buck.

19. In college and throughout my mission, I had 39 roomates. And I can remember all of their names and where they are from (and if they were easy to live with...)

20. I love the Miss America program (not to be confused with the Miss USA program). When I was in college at BYU-Idaho, I won the title of Miss Ada County (that means Boise) and went on to compete in the Miss Idaho pageant. I'm not even from Idaho, but free scholarship money is never a bad thing (by the way, if you don't love the Miss America program, then it means you don't understand it. Come talk to me and I'll tell you all about how the program promotes service and a means of scholarships and how it prepares you for real life jobs from having to stand in front of a panel of 5 judges who fire off questions about politics and religion and you have to maintain your composure.

21. When I was in college, at any given point I'd be working an average of 2.5 jobs.

22. The summer before my mission, I interned with a company in San Antonio called Del Sol. No, not as in the car or the restaurant, but as in this.

I don't 'tag' anyone. But if you want to take a turn, go for it.

I can't believe you interned at Del Sol. I was obsessed with their nail polish that changes colors, and I probably have 17 different colors in my bathroom. Okay, maybe not 17, more like 8.
