I hated playing tag when I was younger and I am not so sure it is any better now! :)

Alright I have posted my Kit for the May Design Challenge at Hummies, (see below) so onto more pressing matters! :) OK, so I guess I have been tagged by my friend Dani and that means I have to blog about 7 random things about me! Here goes:

1. I had straight hair until after my son was born and now it is curly. I have no idea how or why this has happened but it did...the mysteries of science never cease to amaze me.

2. My husband is 14 years older than me. We met when I student taught at the school where he taught. Our first date was to see Treasures of The Czars. We had taken a group of students to see it, but did not get a chance to see much ourselves. The group of kids I had were thugs and required constant supervision and Hilda C. did not feel so good after a 1hour bus ride so DH followed her around with a basin in case she decided to hurl. I asked him if he wanted to come back and see the exhibit without 100 6th graders and he agreed! Thanks Hilda, we'll never forget you!

3. My father died in a car accident when I was twelve. He was a geologist. So, in college, when I needed one more science course to get a science teaching endorsement I decided to take Geology 101. I thought it would be a neat way to learn about what made my father tick since I did not have the chance to do so firsthand. At the conclusion of the course I had come to a very deep realization about my father. He had to have been one of the most bored humans on the planet!! I was extremely hard pressed to find anything interesting about rocks! Sorry Dad if you are reading this from Heaven.

4. Like Julie, I have hazel eyes. Unlike her, I love mine.

5. I never leave the house without mascara on. NEVER! I am way too vain to not at least put in that little effort on my appearance.

6. I have secret desires to be a really great cook, right now the only thing food related that I am great at is ordering off of a menu!

7. I am a complete control freak and need to have my fingers in all of the things going on around me. I would be happiest if someone put me in charge of the world and I got to make ALL of the decisions!

Since I am a blog newbie and all of the people I know that have blogs have already been tagged, I will refrain from passing this on directly. However, if you have read all of this and are still lucid and not comatose and you yourself have yet to be tagged, consider yourself invited to join the game. It is actually much more fun than I would have thought.

LOL. So I guess I just need more mascara for my hazel eyes, eh?

Anyways, David Cook has hazel eyes, so it can't all be bad.

Hummie said...

Now how did Julie know about Cookie's eyes?

That has to be hard every father's day...I know I lost mine two years ago and it's hard. We want to know them better...even my Grandparents.

and I was going to type something else but golly gee willikers...I've been interrupted 5 times and I'm tired of trying to comment!

Hummie said... that I read your post again for the 10th time so I could comment....I remember I was going to say something about make-up....I never where ANY ever! We are different there.

Hummie said... new post? Thanks for your encouraging words always.

Julie (It is.) said...

I know EVERYTHING about David Cook. After all, he's going to marry my daughter, LOL!

So. Chris. About this blogging thing...

Loved reading about you being tagged and your first date with dh! TY for the kind comments on Brandi's LO at Hummie's too! I love the quote you have about we need more smart people and less youth with the fountain! BTW, being tagged is hard to come up with 7 facts and I did it twice!
