SEVEN 7 seven

Tag, I'm it. I got tagged for a meme by Carrie. I wasn't sure I would do it, but everyone else is and I have nothing better to blog about. So here goes.

The rules are as follows:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
5. Leave a comment on their blogs so that they know they have been tagged.

My random/weird facts:

1. Matt and I are addicted to Big Brother. We've watched it loyally every summer since Season 2 in 2001. Right now we're happy to have a winter season to watch. Although, I have to say that this season isn't too great for me, but I still watch each and every episode.

2. My sisters and I all used to pile in a twin bed together once in a while and thought it was great fun. Oh, I should mention it was the top bunk. Ha. I usually bailed first (but it was my bed).

3. When I went into the hospital to have Zachariah, a group from a local school came in to present me with 2 new Dr. Seuss books. It was Dr. Seuss's birthday, so they were giving books to all the babies born that day. Zachariah wasn't born until the next day though. I was just there for observation the day before and then was induced the next morning. They still wanted to give him the books. I couldn't refuse. I love children's books.

4. Did I ever tell you that Matt crawled out from behind a rock when he proposed to me. He was taking too long back there (we were hiking and I was waiting to take a photo), and I thought he was going to scare me with a bug. I was surprised though.

5. I know how to play the French horn. (I wish I'd gotten the chance to play it more when I could.)

6. My baby sister just turned 22 this week. I remember the day she was born (or night rather). It was in the middle of an ice storm.

7. As a kid my first job was delivering newspapers. I did it for 7 years! It was a good way to learn about responsibility and money.

Tag, you're it now.

1. Devan at All D's - because, like me, she's bored that no one has been posting new blogs to read.
2. Mommy Brain - because she's been MIA for a while, so I'd like to see a new post from her.
3. Kelsey at Midwest Mom- because she's on bed rest, and maybe this will give her something new to do.
4. Shannon at Cerebral Palsy Baby - because she's been quiet, and I think she does have things to say.
5. Sarah at No Whey, Mama - because she just had a baby a month ago, and I need to hear more about this new little one.
6. Emily at Katydid - because she's one of the cool kids who I'd love to meet IRL some day.
7. And Misty at Rainy Day in May - because she's suffering with allergies and needs a little love.

Of course if you haven't been tagged by anyone else and would like to do this, do it. I can add you to my list if you want. ;)

Randomly.....I played the french horn in junior high. I switched to the oboe in high school, though.

Misty said...

So you knew he was behind the rock... I was thinking, at first, that you were hiking with someone else and then he emerged... ok...

I will do this for tomorrow's blog. I have done it before but really, most of us have more than 7 facts! :)

Thanks for the love...

I'm totally not feeling the Big Brother yet this season. I've always liked it, but I'm not hooked yet. We'll see...

I played French horn for six years.

I can't decide what I think of Big Brother either, but there's nothing else on and I've watched all the other seasons, so I keep on.

So THAT'S the reason I like you so much; I played French Horn throughout junior high and high school. And I love the Dr. Seuss story. What a neat thing to do.

Mommy Brain said...

Thanks for the tag. It was the kick I needed to post again. Maybe I'll actually start averaging more than one per month...
