a tag (#2)

Freshman hallmate and ingenious designer Resa of Resa Design tagged me. Perfect timing, too. I've got nothing to talk about today.


To start, I could tell you how our Star Sleeper, Luke, has decided that he's not so excited about staying put in his bed during naptime. I could talk about how we've decided to lock his door--from the outside--after the first time he decides to get out of bed each time, and how he cries and fusses until finally he darts back into his bed and drifts off to sleep. But that's no fun to talk about and I'm so tired of thinking about it. I'd much rather talk tags today.

The rules are: 1. Link to the tagger and provide the rules on your blog. 2. Share 7 facts about yourself 3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post bey leaving names as well as links to their blogs. 4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

So, here it goes.

Fact #1: When I was in 2nd grade, I found a pair of old, tortoise reading glasses in a drawer at home. I'm sure they were my moms from the early 70's. I decided to stuff them in my backpack and put them on when I got to school. I told all my friends that I needed glasses, and that they were my new pair. I remember my best friend, Tracie asking me, "When are they going to put glass inside them?" They had no glass in them. They were just the frames. It didn't matter to me though. I thought needing glasses was so cool. However, now I have them, and think quite the opposite.

Fact #2: I'm a back sleeper. Yep, from the time I shut my eyes, to the time I wake. And, I love my bed. LOVE it! Mr. Marvelous and I bought a Queen Temperpedic a few months back and it was--by far--the best investment of ours.

Fact #3: I broke my nose the day before my first prom. It was the end of my sophomore year and during our last softball practice of the season, I was playing pop up catch with my coach. (I was catcher, and I LOVED super high pop ups.) Unfortunately, I lost a ball in the sun and it came down and cracked me right in the nose. When I fell backwards, two of my friends came to each side of me to help me up. Blood was flowing out of my nose and both eyes were beginning to puff up and turn a deep shade of purple. All that was running through my head was who I could talk into taking my spot at my first prom that was the next evening.

Fact #4: I'd always wanted to be a Pediatrician. Ever since I knew what the word meant. I wanted to be a Pediatrician, and a mama of 7. It wasn't until the end of my freshmen year in college that I realized how ridiculous that sounded. That's when I changed my major to Elementary Ed and graduated with an Early Childhood minor.

Fact #5: I can't stand a messy house. I find myself irritable and disorientated until it's picked up.

Fact #6: I spend my free time--during naps--crafting. I enjoy making things with fabric, mod podge, felt, spray paint, ribbon, and scrapbooking paper. And I aspire to be just like my friend, Becky, when I grow up. She knows how to do everything.

Fact #7: I wish Mr. Marvelous was a stay-at-home dad...with me. Or! I wish I could work in his office with him as his secretary. All day long. Everyday. I really LOVE HIM! And it drives me crazy.

There. Now you should know me a tad bit better. How many of you already knew these?

So now I'll tag the first 7 people who commented on my last post.

Thanks for the tag. NaBloPoMo is coming up tomorrow. ;) And I'm still slacking on another tag I got. I'll have to get to that for a double feature.

And #5 is me to a T! Loved your 7. Hopefully mine will be slightly interesting.

Fun to read!

#7 was my favorite.

I'm with you on #5 and #7. DH was off for 4 months while we were waiting for the purchase of his business to go through, and I LOVED it. We're always thinking of ways we can lower our bills, pay off things faster and come up with creative ways to earn money so that we can all be home together!

I knew about the craftiness - thanks to the great surprise package I found awaiting me on my porch this Wednesday! Awesome ensemble of stuff :).
I love the new pics on your sidebar, btw.

I too wanted glasses when I was in elem school--I even went far enough to BUY fake pairs of glasses at Claire's...and yes, I too, lied to everyone saying they were real...they were big, square, black, and ugly. Needless to say, I didn't wear them for very long! But I sure thought I was cool!
