Okay, so I was tagged a while ago and started this a while ago and just finished it (5.22.08) Sorry. Sue me.

20 years ago: 20 Years ago I was quickly approaching my 1st birthday. My mom never let me cry, because every time I cried it ended in barf. Every single time. What can I say. I'm very close to my emotions. And breakfast.

10 years ago: 10 years ago I was basically a 5th grader trapped in a 15 year old's body. I had a green and blue blotchy patterned retainer, which Dave the janitor at Glenmoor had to fish out of the lunch room garbage cans from time to time. Someone needs to find that man and give him a medal.

5 years ago: 5 years ago I was about to turn 16, which is an age loaded with exciting new liberties. I was about to get my license, and the ever looming dating age hung right before me. Little did I know my 16th year of life would bring with it the worst blind date ever, an embarrassing collision with the neighbor's PARKED car, my first real job, and developing some of the very best friendships I've ever had. I was a little bit emotionally unstable, but at least there was no barf finale whenever I cried.

The Blind Date to End All Blind Dates

3 years ago: I had just been accepted to BYU and planned on going there in the fall. I never ever wanted to go to BYU, but I just felt like it was right and its been one of the best decisions I've ever made. (And no, I am NOT earning my MRS. Degree... College is awesome and I've learned so much!) I graduated Davis High with Honors, and began working in an office for Abercrombie & Fitch doing inbound customer service calls. Picture the snobbiest customers in the world, and then multiply that by a THOUSAND. And thats what I dealt with every day. But it taught me so much patience I can't say I regret it.

Oh Senior Year. Such a joy.

1 year ago: I had just successfully completed my 3rd semester at BYU, and had been through a year of CRAZY-A roommates that would make any sane college student lose their mind.

These are not them:
Oh, and Cassie had the most beautiful baby boy George last year too.
Yesterday: I rode various UTA vehicles to salt lake for mother's day so that my mom wouldn't have to drive all the way down to provo to pick me up. It took a whopping 2 and a half HOURS just to get from Provo to Temple Square via bus and trax. I really don't want to talk about it.

Today: Today is Mother's day. We made dinner for mom.. and gave her some sweet presents and basically just celebrated how awesome a mother she is.

Tomorrow: I will go back to Provo, to crazy independent study office life, and count down to my 21st Birthday!! And I will get to drive the Saturn back and keep it for a few days, a token for my travel troubles.
This year: Is going to be excellent. I have a great apartment, a pretty sweet new ward, and high hopes. I'm going to get healthy and I'm gonna "get whut I wan" - Kelly. You know.

This one:


  1. Kristin! How I love thee! I have a funny I guess my little sister hangs out with Sean Bryan (Bryant? I never know) little brother, so I told her and her friends the pina colada story, oh it was a good time. I also told them the "holla holla holla holla holla holla holla holla holla" stories, and am proud to say it will be passed on.

  2. yessssss. That makes me so happy. This tag was a fun one. It brought back some great memories. I hope you don't mind that there is a picture of George on my blog. But it really was the highlight of my year last year!
