Tag - I'm "It"

Yeah, Baby, I am IT!

Not really. I've just been "tagged"...by two Jens actually...this Jen and this Jen. So weird!

I am now supposed to list 10 things about myself, and then tag someone else. As if you haven't had enough of interesting Daiquiri facts from my 100 things list!

OK, here goes.

1. I am positively nuts about my husband. I still look at him and can hardly believe that I'm married to him and have 4 beautiful children with him. He makes me laugh like no one else can. He spoils me. He shelters me. He comforts me. He is my best friend. OK...I'm going to start crying!

2. I have a cold today, and am also seriously sleep deprived. I am very close to tears over almost anything...including my kids bickering, the delicious taste of chocolate, a dumb song on the radio...and talking about my wonderful hubby. I'm so thankful today for left-overs in the fridge, soft tissues, and my comfy pants!

3. I have ugly toes. My own Mom tells me I have ugly toes (it's OK though Mom, I know you love me anyway). I have my Dad's toes. I used to dislike them for how ugly they are, but now I love them for the blessing they are...they work...they don't look that bad with some polish on them...and they remind me a little of my Dad.

4. My brothers and sisters-in-law are so amazing! They are all kind, intelligent, wonderful people. One of them can repeatedly bowl a perfect game. Another is working on the Mars Rover program with NASA. Another is a ridiculously talented carpenter. Another can actually direct plays. Another is hysterically funny and would do anything for his family. Another is wicked smart. They are all wonderful parents (those who have kids).

5. When my hubby is on a business trip, the kids and I almost always eat off paper plates...that is, if we're not eating at McD's.

6. It drives me bonkers when someone sticks their entire hand in the Kleenex box to get a tissue out. It stretches out the plastic around the opening, which makes it so that they won't pop up one at a time. Bonkers, I tell ya. Bonkers!

7. I love taking pictures. My camera just calls to me on a daily basis. I love taking nature pictures and baby/child pictures the most because I feel like I can really see God in those pictures. When I get a really good one, I always feel like it's a precious gift...a gift of God revealing Himself to me.

8. I have dimples. When I smile. I'm afraid I have them when I sit down too...but we won't go there today.

9. I throw up on carnival rides. The "Octopus" is the ride that did me in for the first time...at the North Dakota state fair. That's right...giant red fair hot dog all over the place. My sister was sure glad that I was sitting on the outside! The people below...not so lucky.

10. That reminds me...I have the best sisters on the planet too. They're both beautiful. They're both incredibly intelligent (more so than their big sister, I'm afraid). They're both registered nurses, who I would be thrilled to have take care of me if I ever ended up in the hospital. They're good wives, good daughters, good friends...just all around...a blessing to spend time with each of them!


Now I'm supposed to tag someone else. I tag Becky @ Everyday Becky, Monica @ The Homespun Heart, Angie @ The Abshire's Wild and Crazy Journey Called Life, and Theresa @ The Journey Begins Here

hey, I throw up on carnival rides too (no kidding, the first time was when I rode the octopus, too!) WEIRD!

Daiquiri  – (3/19/2008 04:23:00 PM)  

That IS weird! There must be some special made-to-make-you-puke factor engineered into that ride!


The Journey Begins Here  – (3/19/2008 07:35:00 PM)  

LOVE #8. Thanks for the tag. Stop by tomorrow for my 'interesting' facts. Theresa

# 6 , I totally agree!! I can't stand it when the tissues don't pop up. What kid of Camera do you have. I have ben researching the Nikon D80. ANy thoughts? Thanks : )

Hilty Sprouts!  – (3/19/2008 08:46:00 PM)  

Yay! You did it! I spoke too soon on Becky's blog!

I totally agree with the kleenex thing.

Hey Crystal - cut and paste this address to get to my post about how I decided on my camera.

I think the Nikon is great - almost bought it in fact. I chose the Pentax for a few reasons...but mostly because I could use the 28-300 lens I already had.

BTW - I was going to respond at your blog, but I can't get to your blog from your profile. You might have set it up like that on purpose for privacy. But if you didn't and you'd like people to be able to get to your blog easily, you might think about changing that :)


Angie  – (3/19/2008 11:35:00 PM)  

I'm right there with you on the whole paper plate buisness. It's so much better and kids don't care at all.

So, I fulfilled my tagging. Come on over and check it out when you get a chance!

Hi! Thanks so much for the tag - I'm sorry though, I just can't keep up with everything right now! With the Spring Clean Challenge and Bloom Swap - I've got tons of e-mail to respond to. Since I did this tag recently, I'm going to have to pass - thank you again for thinking of me!
