Once upon a time....

Ten Years Ago
I was 18 and just starting college. It was so exciting and I felt like such an adult. Ha! I worked hard for a 3.8 GPA so I would be able to transfer to any college the next year and therefore follow my year younger boyfriend. Yeah, stupid, I know. It's ok, MSU was great and anyway, That's where I met Jon!

Five Years Ago
I was 23 and living in East Lansing. I had just graduated from college and decided to give myself one more year in East Lansing to find a job there as I loved the town. I enjoy being around academia and it's quite pretty up there. While job hunting, I was a substitute teacher and private English tutor to foreign grad students. Hey Judy,I did a lot of elementary ESL! I had my own little apartment which I miss still. It had a PINK bathroom with a chandelier!

One Year Ago

I was about 30lbs. heavier and looked like a manatee in my maternity swimsuit. I went to water aerobics each day and worried about everything. I wondered what Noah would look like and I was excited about it being fall.

Yesterday

I woke up bright and early, we all did. Thanks Noah. A bit later we ran to the mall so I could check a new store out as I am on a never ending hunt for jeans that fit right. We ran some errands, took care of my parents cats while they were gone and ran by a family friend's home.

5 Things I'd do with 100 million dollars

Buy a house that Jon, Noah and I and many rescued pets could live in forever
Get Noah set for college and beyond
See if Jon would quit his job and we could become writers together
Give to charities and since I might have a nanny, go volunteer at those charities too
Sorry..this is kind of materialistic..buy some clothes and shoes for Jon and Noah and a little for me and I would get my hair professinally dyed and my makeup done and then take a family portrait.
