Trivial Post Tuesday

Just trying to catch up on a few random posts today!

Melanie tagged me (quite awhile back!) for a flashback meme. Think back on the last 15 years of your life. What would you tell someone that you hadn’t seen or talked to for 15 years? How would you sum up your life? You get 10 bullet points. A list of 10 things to summarize about you.

15 years ago was 1993 and I was 20 years old...so in 15 years...
- In 1996 I got married and moved to Colorado from Maryland
- I realized it was a mistake and we divorced
- While living in CO I had the opportunity to be an escort for Tommy Lasorda
- I attended two "all-years" high school reunions (for Zweibrucken High School) in Orlando (1998) and Las Vegas (2000)
- In 2000 I took a chance on love again and married a guy I knew from high school
- With this marriage I relocated to NM
- We took a cruise for our one year anniversary (first cruise for both of us and we want to go again!)
- In 2003 I had our first child, a girl, I always wanted a girl!
- In 2007 we went through our first deployment experience
- In 2008 our second child, a boy, was born

If you do this one let me know so I can read about the last 15 years of your life summed up in 10 bullet points!

I was also tagged, 3x, for 6 things about me, but now I don't remember by whom...sorry!
1. I sometimes talk out loud to myself- even out in public. If I'm by myself in a store looking for something I'll mumble to myself.
2. I prefer the quiteness of staying home and reading a good book then being out and about.
3. My taste buds have changed. I never used to put pepper on anything I ate, but now I sprinkle it on a lot of things.
4. I don't eat peppers though.
5. I like chocolate, but I don't prefer chocolate ice cream or cake.
6. I have a bowl of cereal just about every morning, except on Sundays when Joe makes breakfast.

Alisha gave me this award
Killlashandra gave me the "thrifty blog award" because of my Friday Freebie posts.
Cuddle Cottage gave me this award:

Thank you ladies for thinking of me! And if Lucas would give me more than 5 minutes I might have time to sit here and link to other bloggers and pass these on! But he won't - we're going through some separation anxiety already! Geesh! If he spies me in a room, even if he's been perfectly content playing, he'll crawl right over to me and demand to be picked up.

And how can I resist this cute face? Snotty nose and all!

I can't leave him alone for a second, he's pulling up on things now, but doesn't have the balance/coordination to get down yet...little stinker!

chelle said...

CrackerJacks said...

You're welcome for the award. You totally deserve it!

I enjoyed reading about the last 15 years of your life too. Thanks for sharing.

LauraJ said...

this was great but... I thought Lucas was born in 2008!! Is he a year already? *wink*

PEA said...

Loved reading about your last 15 years...amazing how much can happen in just those few years!! Congratulations also on your most deserving awards:-) I can't believe Lucas is 6 months old already and crawling around! He's such a little darling, and as you say, who can resist that face!!! xoxo

Heidi said...

He is growing up so quick, it's neat to see the pics of him growing. You evidentally have had a lot of change in the past 15 years yourself. Sounds like you are right where you should be. Congrats on your awards, you deserve them!

Laura said...

Lucas looks so much like Kayla. They are both precious. I love to see where people came from...boy how we grow and change even as adults, always so much to learn.

Dori (Aviva's mommy) said...

LUCAS....is just adorable...and getting so big!

much more than a mom said...

Great bullets - that would be hard to do.

Man is that little guy ever a cutie!

Lucas is just so cute! I miss mine being that little!! He looks so much like you!! He looks like he is having so much fun getting into things!
love ya,

Bonita said...

Michelle, I read the story of your first marriage and all I can say is that I would never ever have imagined you'd been through all of that, which is a testimony to your strength of character.

I'm emailing you.

Mom24 said...

In those pictures, Lucas looks just like your hubby! It was great to learn more about you.

I'm so sorry about your first marriage. What a horrible story. I live in fear that one of my girls would end up in an abusive situation and not feel like they had choices. I'm glad you were able to leave that behind.

Theresa said...

He is so cute, just so cute.

Love Theresa

Karen said...

#1&2 are me exactly!

Lucas is growing up so much - and he looks very much like the masculine version of Kayla. :)

Amy said...

Lucas is so darn cute!! And I know all about separation anxiety - Boy 2 has been going through it EVERY day when I drop him off at daycare.

Shannon @ Gabi's World said...

He is so totally adorable! Love his smile! We have the snotty noses at our house, too!

Jill said...

Wow - fun meme! Great awards! Super sweet photos. :)

It was great learning more about you and, also, you really got me thinking. Check out my post when you get a chance.

Tammy said...

Loved learning even more about you, Michelle!
And love the photos!
Congrats on the awards, too!
Miss seeing your friendly comments lately, but I know how busy life gets- especially with little ones!
Mine are older but lately I'm still having trouble keeping up in blogland!

Tara said...

I DEFINITELY could not resist that face!

my--four--sons said...

What a cutie! I recieved the book today. Thanks again. I have read the first chapter already and can't wait to read it all.

ALF said...

I also find myself mumbling to myself when I'm out in public. I'm sure people think I'm nuts.

I did one of those 15 years posts awhile back. It's somewhere on my blog.

Michelle said...

Your little guy is growing so fast! Both of your kids are so adorable!!!

Renee said...

Wonderful post! Lucas is adorable, as is Kayla too. I can't believe he's 6 months already.

Oh michelle, Lucas is such a cutie, I love that smile. I just got the chance to catch up on your blog. And wow, Kayla must have been so excited to start kindergarden. She is just beautiful.
