So, I guess that's what I get after being on hiatus for so long... Three tags to answer to! Sorry this is going to be so long...

The rules of the game are posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post the player then tags 5 other people and posts their names.

1.What was I doing 10 years ago?
I had just turned 12! Man those days were awkward... I was in 6th grade at the brand new 6th grade center in St. George, and I tried to be a tomboy. I loved everything to do with sports, and I thought that flirting with a guy meant beating him at any game or activity. I had a crush on Brad Jurca- (haha!), and for the first time in quite a few years, was in a different class than Mallory an Lacey. I would have a pizza bagel every day (anybody remember eating those?) and play that dodge ball game with the cones at lunch... haha. I also started listening to the WallFlowers because the "cool" girls were listening to them. And I ended up really liking them. I was entering into Young Womens and felt really weird in there. I was always really intimidated by the older girls at that age, but ended up really loving Young Womens!. (P.S. During this same time, Jeff had just left on his mission and was in the MTC! haha)

I think we were both kind of shocked at the situation, but he ended up taking me and we had a great time! Went to the corn maze, were tied together at dinner, and danced all night. It was great. So technically... neither of us asked first. Thanks Tristan... :)

During Spring Break, we decided to meet some friends at one of their family cabins up on Cedar Mountain. So- We had this rule that we didn't kiss in the car, and as we were driving to the cabin, we all of a sudden turned the corner and saw this amazing sunset. "Ok- I can't take this any more!", he said, and stopped the car. I thought he just wanted to kiss me or something so when he came around the car a suddenly dropped on one knee, I was shocked!

Thanks for being a good sport Jenna! All your answers were so fun to read, and I love all the pictures. How funny that Jeff was leaving on his mission when you were 12! My parents are 7 years apart too, and they have always said they wouldn't have it any other way!
