I have been tagged by my friend, Faith, to answer a few random things about myself:

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?

Oh, crap-- this question just reminded me that it has been 10 years since I graduated from high school!! The problem is that I was the class president and planning a reunion was my responsibility!!! Yikes!! "OK-- Don't panic, Holly, you can do this."

To all my dear fellow high school friends that read this: please forward this to anyone in our class that you keep in touch with:

Dear BBCS Class of 1998 Graduates (all 26 of you!!!):

Please join us for a night of Glamour and Elegance
as we celebrate our 10 Year Class Reunion
Saturday, August thirtieth two thousand eight
Five o'clock in the evening
Chik-Fil-A Restaurant
Matthews, North Carolina
Attire: Red Carpet Chic (Culottes OK)
Hosted by: SOM Class of 1998
*P.S. If you consider the black iron gate that encloses the outdoor play yard as appropriate childcare, then childcare is provided.

Wow-- I feel much better already. I just needed a minute to think.

2. My Favorite Snacks

Organic baby carrots and celery with a dash of pure rock salt and a glass green tea

3. Five things on my to-do list today

  • Iron Chris' boxers
  • Finish baking my famous made from scratch pound cake for my small group
  • Finish knitting Baby Annie's hospital blanket
  • Attend weekly homeowner's association meeting
  • Take Max and Jack to the Miami Symphony Orchestra concert

4.Things I would do if I were a billionaire

Equip everyone I know to live a more "GREEN" lifestyle.

5. Five jobs that I've had

  1. Hair Colorist
  2. Golf Caddy
  3. Maid
  4. Cook
  5. Algebra Tutor

Oh wait, do you think that question meant previous jobs? I was just thinking about what I do NOW. I'll tell you what-- Chris can be a handful.

6. Five places (OR rooms) in which I've lived

  • In a room with my sister, Kristi, that was decked out with the Charlotte hornets posters
  • In a room with my sister, Kristi, that was pink with ballet slippers all over it (neither one of us ever danced!!)
  • In a room with my sister, Kristi, that was decorated with the cartoon duck tales (sad to say, we were in high school at the time!)
  • In a room with Chris that is decorated with Star Trek paraphernalia

***I have lived with some people who are in serious identity crisis'

7.Five random things people wouldn't know about me:

  1. I am always serious
  2. I just eat and eat and eat and can't gain a pound to save my life
  3. I was always a huge BLOSSOM fan (remember that show?). I loved her so much, I even got a nose job to resemble hers.
  4. I have a really hard time opening up to people
  5. I stress about what to write on this blog
8. Five Cd's that I'd have to take on a desert island

A desert island? It wouldn't matter what Cd's I brought, because I would just use them to reflect the sun so someone would rescue me and take me to the nearest hotel where I could shower and relax.

9. People I tag are....

Everyone I know has already been tagged!!

Hope you laugh reading this as much as I did writing it. By the way, if you believe any of this, you are as gullible as my friend, Faith :) !!!

Holly said...

Faith and Kristin-- I had a feeling I would get the 2 of you :)!! Awe, some things never change :). I love you guys.

Gloria-- You Should start a blog!! You make me laugh everytime I am with you no matter what we are discussing. The world needs a little of you humor and a lot of your passion for our Lord.

Carissa-- I need help!! Seriously, did you really plan a reunion from another state? I could use some advice!!!

Well, class of 98!! I geuss i will be the bad guy once again.First of all i would love to say i hope you all are well and doing very well.i see alot of you have spouses and kiddos and i'm happy to see that, but i must speak for a few out there that don't quite understand this whole reunion at chic-fila!!
First of all, 13 of us have a bond that can't even begin to be put into words.Whether or not we got along 13 of us saw each other 6 days a week, from 5 years old til graduation, that in itself is undescribable, i geuss me and others are just confussed!!Let me take you back for a sec!!I remember Holly busting her teethe on her trampoline at her b-day party, i remember kristin and jonathan finally hooking up(per say) on the hill at a soccer game at cramerton. I remember the first day faith came to our school and sliding her notes cuz my dad knew her mom,I remember beating grace christian 83-0 in b-ball,i remember beating Gospel light in soccer(first time they had been beat in 4 years)our senior year, i remember our girls winning state!!i remember beating the number one team in b-ball(vandalia) on senior night,i remember countless rejections to banquets by alot of ya(can't blame ya), iremember so much and just worry that alot you have forgot what we have. Do me a favor!!excluding sibblings name five people that the history that we have and by we i mean class of 98? can't we have a once in a life time bond i have just scratched the surface, all i'm saying is this we deserve more than chic-fila on a sat. afternoon, we will be lucky if five people can sit together, i understand that you all have your own lives and things to do but our class isn't ordinary we are a once in a lifetime class and deserve to have the chance to at least talk..if i don't see you guys there i wish nothing but the best for you all, obviously you all hold a special place in my heart i just wish that me(and others) did as well!!kindergarden to 12th grade, that really is unbelievable

Ronnie (and the other gullible people who have read this post:),
I am sorry to have upset you-- this entire post was a joke--including the Chik-Fil-A reunion invite.Nothing about me in this post is true-- just for fun:)I have to admit,though, I have gotten quite a few laughs at how many people thought I was being serious:) I would love you to plan a kick butt reunion. Go for it!
