This is for Missy....

Jobs I’ve had:
1. Hot Dog on a Stick- Highschool (I don't want to hear it- I swear it was cool then.)
2. Receptionist at Gastric Bypass Surgery Clinic- Highschool
3. Water Park in Chula Vista- for about a day
4. Law Firm Receptionist- summer between semesters
5. Waldenbooks-BYU
6. Good Earth -in Provo- BYU
7. Club Tan- (yup) -BYU
8. World Gym in Spanish Fork-BYU ( I guess I switched jobs about as often as apartments- not sure what that says about me??)
9. 24 Hour Fitness in SD- Between semesters
10. Marketing Executive (Time Share hawk) for Marriot Vacation Club- post college/marriage- out here in the desert.

Places for a Weekend Getaway:
1. San Diego
2. Idyllwild (we talk about going some weekend, never have.)
3. Anywhere that could take us out of the heat

Movies I Can Watch Over and Over:
1. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
2. Devil Wears Prada (I feel like I'm copying you Missy, but honestly, these are the only two movies I've ever ASKED for- I'm not usually a movie repeater)
3. Little Mermaid- well it's not really up to me, when a little girl says "memae memae memae memae" enough times, you just start it again.

Guilty Pleasures:
1. 9:30 icecream (even if dessert was a part of the night at some other point) icecream with milk (thank you Sarah) and cereal (has to be corn based: flakes or chex are best) , and sometimes banana- is still a must.
2. Sleeping in as long as I can stretch it- (sometimes Sophia talks in her crib for like an hour... no I don't let her cry so I can sleep in, just talk)
3. Buying whatever I want at Trader Joes (especially those sparkling grapefruit drinks in individual glass bottles)

Places I’ve lived:
1. Sacramento, CA
2. Corpus Christi, TX
3. San Diego
4. Laie, HI
5. Provo, UT
6. Lihue, HI (on Kauai if 2 months counts for living)
7. Palm Desert, CA
8. Indio, CA

What I First Thought When I Saw Ross:
1. Really cute boy- must sit at his table (in library) looking incredibly cool and nonchalant
2. Second thing I thought as he walked away from table: oh crap- he's short. (He's 6'3", I think it was his pant/shoe ratio, or a too-big backpack, or possible tapering, but we still argue about it.)

Places I’ve Been on Vacation:
1. Big Bear- it was our snow vacation growing up
2. Utah- if that counts- lounging at Ross' folks' is TOTALLY vacation
3. Pismo Beach- ate my first Coldstone icecream cone there as a kid
4. San Francisco- I'm with you Missy, one of the greatest cities (though I haven't seen the East coast yet) also where Ross proposed so I'm a little biased.
5. Hawaii- Big Island and Maui in High School as a babysitter for 2 little girls, Kauai while at BYU-H and as a nanny later, Oahu finally with my sweet husband last year.
6. Cabo, Mexico- on our honeymoon. :)
7. Europe- Paris, drove through Switzerland, Florence, Venice, and Rome. Wow.
8. Lots of San Diego
9. Some AZ
10. A little Vegas
11. Florida- Well you know all too much about that one.

Favorite Foods
1. icecream (surprise, that's what-- the third mention of it so far?)
2. fresh mex
3. good seafood
4. chocolate: brownies, cake, icecream, or straight (the pound plus bar from Trader Joes is the best milk chocolate for everyone dipping strawberries or making candy of any sort.)

If I’m In a Jam With Ross, Tactics I Use To Get Out of the Doghouse
- I could actually really use some help with this one- I seem to have a problem with pride- With any "attempts", I usually end up extending my stay in the doghouse.

Websites I Visit Daily
1. blogs
2. potterybarn kids/land of nod/babystyle/mini boden etc... (since there is another one coming soon and Sophia needs a big girl room.)
3. email

First Kiss Locations
1. W/ Ross? on the porch- at the La Jolla condo

Places I’d Rather Be:
With Ross, Sophia and a great job, and a great house?
1. San Diego
2. Bay Area
3. Hawaii
4. Pretty much anywhere near the coast with warmish days, cool nights, and sporadic clouds.

loved your tagging imformation. i actually could watch littlel mermaid over and over again and i don't even have a baby.

Kym said...

such fun info on you. thanks for sharing. i keep finding out we like more & more of the same things...we should be friends! :)

Rebecca said...

You and me are the same on movies. Why weren't we better friends in college? I feel like we could have passed many hours eating ice cream and watching the predecessors of Devil Wears Prada and How to Lose a Guy (you know, Notting Hill and You've Got Mail...)

Also, sparkling grapefruit juice? Do you get the GUS (Grown-Up-Soda) brand? I love them. Love them. For valentine's day, Levi put one of those in the fridge. Love.

Levi the romantic..

Lil I loved the details. It reminded me of how happy I was to live with you - heaven. It's been hard not to have an ice cream (w milk) buddy... and though I'm a little surprised that everyone's into Devil Wears Prada, I guess the clothes are enough to bring anyone back. Rebecca, that's what Lillie and I were doing - you totally should have come!

I don't know if I knew about your Texas stint... (tattoo at an amusement park: American by birth, Texan by the grace of God), and was thrilled to relive the hot-dog-on-a-stick info. (she is a total babe in that striped ensamble people). Let's get you tagged more often...

Yes, yes, yes. I loved this. I love finding out new things about my favorite people. Hot Dog On A Stick? I can just picture you with the hat making the lemonade (they have the best lemonade!). We need to get together and have a girls night watching Devil Wears Prada. It's on my top list as well.

Sarah got me on the milk with ice cream diet too. Heaven.

Lizzie said...

Oh brother Lillie. You're like the 10th person that's tagged me in the last 2 days. However, at least your version has topics...it will be easier to do. Have fun in La Costa!!!
