Playing Tag and an Award

So I was tagged By Lisa at for this blog thingy where you answer 5 questions 5 times. It's pretty cool so here it goes.

Where were you five years ago?

1. I had a nearly one year old son.
2. I was being the mother of four year old and three year old daughters.
3. I was once again trying to lose the baby weight.
4. I was getting immersed in the Harry Potter fandom (HPANA).
5. I was feeling a tad overwhelmed.

Where would you like to be five years from now?

1. Working on a fiction book that is based on reality.
2. Being the best mom I can be
3. Have some sort of job in photography
4. 35 pounds lighter
5. handling teenage girls with finesse

What is on your to do list for today?
1. Get Gabriel caught up in his school work (he's been sick).
2. Keep Noah out of trouble
3. Vacuum the floor and do the dishes (UGH)
4. Help Roxanne and Isabella with their homework
5. Try to start some work with Elijah on reading

What 5 snack do you enjoy?

1. Chips and salsa
2. Diced avocado with lime juice and salt
3. Yogurt with granola
4. Cookies (my downfall)
5. Sliced tomato with salt and pepper

What would you do if you were a billionaire?
1. Set up a trust fund for my kids that they can't touch until they finish school or turn 30
2. I would want to throw my money into a worthy cause of some kind. Maybe I would start some sort of campaign for education in which not everyone was forced to learn the same way.
3. Set something up for all my siblings.
4. Make sure my mother never wants for anything
5. Buy a house and probably a car

Okay so I have to tag 5 people, but most have already been tagged so I'll tag as many as I can.

How about Cruella Collette From The Giraffability of Digressions

UMMM Also Tara Smith From Princess of Procrastination

Also Yvonne from Welcome to my World of Poetry

And I think Stephen From Stephen McCarthy Stuffs

Four is all I've got for now. Sorry :-(


I was given an award by Rayna Iyer over at Coffee Rings Everywhere . It's the "From Me to You" Award. She gave it to me because she likes the photos I post on my blog. She was interpreting it and I think that's what I will do too. I am giving this award to bloggers who have created images with their words and/or their cameras.

Hey, thanks for thinking of me!

You're actually the third person to "Tag" me. And I've decided I will play after I've been tagged for the one hundredth time. Ha!

Yeah, what I'm saying is that I'm that wallflower party-pooper who just stands off to the side and watches everyone else have fun.

But seriously: I do thank you for even thinking of me!

By the way, I love avocado no matter how it's fixed. Literally grew up on that stuffs in L.A. But my favorite? Avocado on buttered toast (preferably white toast) with lots and lots of salt sprinkled over the top. Sounds bad but it's GREAT! That would probably be my dying meal request. Please try it sometime and tell me what you think of it.

Hey Marjorie - love your answers - especially because so many are child-orientated. Just shows where your priorities are, which is great!

Thanks for the tag, but I doubt I'll do it. I don't think there is one person that I know/ or blog follow that HASN'T been tagged already. Still, I might answer the questions one of these days, just skip on the actual tagging part :)

@ Stephen- Fair enough. I figured you wouldn't, but you were one of the only people that I could see that hadn't done it yet. :-P

I can't gaurantee I'll try your avocado toast thing, but it sounds interesting. I might try it....

@ Whisper- It's hard to find someone wha has NOT been tagged.

@ Clarissa- Thanks. :-)

@ Yvonne- You're welcome. :-D I take it you like Spain. I've never been anywhere in Europe besides Germany.

@ Tara- Well, I have so MANY kids see..... But seriously I figured you wouldn't want to do the thing, but I figured it was worth a shot.

@ Lisa- Three of my five kids can eat avocado plain, with a spoon, right out of the rind. I could too for that matter. I heart avocados. Funny thing is I couldn't stand them as a kid.

And five years back is when we met!!!!

Love the people you have passed the award onto. Each of them does weave magic.

Incidentally, that Award was meant to give you a hint that we want more photographs on your blog. Are you reserving those fireworks for July 4th? If not, can you post them PLEASE!
