I went to read one of my bookmarked blogs "Blessed" written by my new blog friend "Joanne" and imagine my surprise to see that I'd been tagged! So, here are the rules, and what follows are the best random things I can come up with right now.
1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Post the rules on your blog (copy and paste 1-6).
3) Write 6 random things about yourself (see below).
4) Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5) Let each person know they have been tagged and leave
a comment on their blog.
6) Let the tagger know when your
entry is up.
1.) Both my husband and I are fraternal twins. No, our siblings are not married to each other, but we are both the "Baby A's" of the twinset. Everybody always asks if we have twins, supposedly fraternal twins aren't a genetic thing, and when you think through the science, by the time his "genetic code" enters into the equation I've either dropped two eggs or not.... (perhaps that is TMI!) However, there is question as to whether Michele and I are really fraternal (we guess identical), but no guess as to whether Jeff and John are (very different in personality and appearance).
2.) I detail the happenings of every day and can probably show proof of what occured on any given day since high school. Whether I went to Walmart, exercised, or watched a special movie, - you'll find it in countless saved Daytimers....
3.) My husband and I did NOT kiss (each other) before we got married. No, not even a peck. It made for quite the "You may now kiss the bride" celebration (to the tune of "O Happy Day" being played by our friends). If you want to know why or if I think that is such a good idea, feel free to ask me sometime.
4.) I'm rarely ever enamored by expensive shoes, jewelry, or handbags. I have a size 10 to 10 1/2 shoe, so if it looks really cute in a normal size, chances are, it won't look cute on my big-foot. I tend to lose my jewelry, and need too functional of a purse for constant switching around. Oh, and speaking of shoe-sizes, my husband wears the same shoe size as me, so I get to take-over any of his old athletic shoes (Nikes) - as he DOES like shoes.
5.) I gave birth to my daughter in water - in a portable hot tub set up for that purpose in the hospital. I had never planned to do that, but the doctor talked me into it and it was an AMAZING experience (and very fast, literally only about 35 TOTAL minutes of pain). It's probably one of my proudest accomplishments in life.
6.) To the probable disgust of many, November 1st marks the day I can begin to listen to Christmas music and the children to watch (okay, and me too) Christmas movies. I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR, and frequently have nightmares that it is suddenly the night of Christmas Eve and I have done nothing to prepare or celebrate the season.
I think I'm a little late in sending this off to people, so if you've already done this, sorry.
