More than you wanted to know:

I got "tagged" by Rebecca! Normally I'm not great at answering these things but, in order not to be shunned by the blogging community, here goes....
Four jobs I have had in my life:
- Recruiting & admissions for Eureka College
- Serving at Killer Shrimp in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter --my FAVORITE!
- Working with intensive support kids in a middle school
- Assisting the Associate Pastor at our church

Four movies I could watch over and over: I have no clue. I asked Scott if he knew what movies I should list, and he said "Battlestar Galactica." Whatever!

Four places I have lived: Illinois, Arkansas, California, New Mexico

Four shows that I watch: The computer takes up all my TV time

Four places I have been:
- in the tidy front room of a little home in Fengyuan meeting my baby boy
- on the big rocks of Coronado Island beach trying to figure out what I was going to do with my life
- at the front of the tiny Horizon Park Chapel sanctuary giving my life to Christ
- on a sunny beach in Kona, Hawaii marrying the love of my life
Four people who email me regularly: Rebecca, my husband, West Elm, my grandma
Four of my favorite foods:
- Raw cookie dough

Four places I would rather be right now:
- Visiting my mom
- On a warm, sunny beach
- Hangin' out in San Diego (Fashion Valley, Balboa Park, Point Loma tidepools)
- In my husband's arms

Four folks I think will respond: ? Battlestar Galactica!
Four things I'm looking forward to in the next 12 months:
- Seeing God's plans for my life and my family
- Watching Matthew grow
- Celebrating my 5th wedding anniversary
- Watching my mom become a cancer "SURVIVOR!"

Four goals for the New Year:
- Become better at talking (& listening!) to God all day long rather than just right before bed!
- Learn to make a grocery list and then remember to take it with me to the store
- Stop being so self-absorbed
- Be faithful to keep up my prayer blog for America

Four gifts I got for Christmas: a new baby, a new house, a handmade card from my husband, and a Savior

Four places I want to visit:
- someplace very dark and very clear at night so I can see millions of stars in the sky
- an orphanage
- the home of a friend of mine from Mexico...with whom I've lost touch
- the beach (of course) to watch Matthew have fun in the sand!

Four things you did not know about me:
- I once cut my lip while shaving my armpits.
- I have a MA in Education with a concentration in teaching English as a second language, and I have never used it professionally...although I am still paying on the student loan!
- I don't like when people/things are lonely...I even put my silverware into the dishwasher in pairs.
- When I was young I had a crush on Rick Springfield and would daydream about going to a fancy restaurant with him.

Four things I wish I could be better at:
- Praying
- Time management
- Filing paperwork/receipts/etc. rather than throwing it in drawers
- Cooking

Four things I can make without a recipe:
- Grilled cheese sandwich
- Cap'n Crunch Cereal
- Papa Murphy's Take Home Pizza
- Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls

Four musicians that I really like:
- Nick Crespo (our church's worship leader)

I am tagging Reed's daddy, Cormac's mama, Andy's mama, and Helena's mama.

Those of us who know you personally can really appreciate some of your answers. :) HA! And yes, that was my outside laugh!!!

Okay, Tish.. you are cracking me up!! How in the world can one cut their lip while shaving their pits? The visual is hilarious!!
And putting your silverware in the dishwasher in pairs? So sweet :) Now I'm not feeling so weird about just *liking* things in two's...
And I think I prefer your list of things to LIKE to eat a bit more than the things you can COOK. If I ever find myself in your neck of the woods, we'll go out to eat together, 'kay? :)
