  • I've Been Tagged!

    Jerrica over at Something to Talk About has decided that I am IT, entering me into a blogging chain letter type event that involves me sharing 7 things about myself that you don’t know. And if I don’t forward this message on to 10 people I’ll miss out on something lucky. Okay, that last part I made up. Considering I hardly share anything personal about myself, these 7 things should be a piece of cake.

    1. I once had five live scorpions on top of my head. The things a girl will do to get free stuff.

    2. Growing up, I had two dogs – Max One and Max Two. It was easier to remember their names that way.

    3. In my very first snow storm, I hit a patch of black ice and slid into a car in front of me. (No worries, no damage or injuries occurred – but I did boycott driving in snow for a few months.)

    4. I learned how to code in 4 different languages – I remember none of them.

    5. I can not stand the taste of raw tomatoes. Blech, blech blech!

    6. I used to be able to run a 5 minute mile. Used to being the operative words.

    7. I can say the alphabet backwards fairly easily…with my eyes closed!

    Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed 7 fun little tidbits about me!

    Now, here’s my list of 7 people that I’m tagging. I apologize in advance if you’ve already been tagged!

    Annie, aka Mamadweeb – She’s helped to keep live giveaways fun & interesting (like with her goat story!)

    Angela from The Suburban Jungle – One of my blogging inspirations. Check out her latest series about the new cat they’re expecting!

    Alyssa the KingdomFirstMom – An amazing #savvyblogging resource

    …OK, why do all these bloggers start with the letter “A”?

    Jabbering Jessie – I love the honesty of her more personal posts.

    Jessica from The B Keeps Us Honest – She does great weekly profiles of fellow bloggers.

    It appears I only know bloggers with “A” and “J” names!

    Rita of One 2 Try – Some how she always has the best giveaway items!

    I was going to tag Blueviolet from A Nut in a Nutshell, but she was just tagged. So my final person is…

    Jennifer at J. Leigh Designz – She has a colorful blog AND is a Farmville neighbor!

    Yesterday, a belated Christmas present to myself arrived in the mail – a Bose Sounddeck II! I LOVE that I can plug in my iPod Touch into it and blast my music throughout the house while I’m cleaning. But what makes this stereo more than just any other stereo is that I MADE $4.49 by… Continue reading →
    Even in the middle of winter, sometimes I crave a smoothie. There’s something about the blend of fruits mixed with ice cream or milk that just really hits the spot when you feel like you need a hint of sweetness without too much sugar. There’s a smoothie shop on my way in to work, but… Continue reading →
