Tag--I'm It!



I've been tagged by two great ladies in my life--my cousin Becky http://cougarblueforever.blogspot.com/ and my sweet friend Kittie http://kittiekraft.typepad.com/kittiekraft/! I know that the taggin' thing has been around for a while and it's probably "old hat" to many of you, but as I'm new to blogging, being tagged is still a fun, new thing for *me*.

Also, as a tribute to these 2 awesome card-makers, I've posted above a card made by each of them and given to me. I'll let you "guess" which one is Kittie's! I love both of their styles so much!!! Enjoy...

The rules of the game:

Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog, we all want to know them.
Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

7 Random Things about Me:

1. I'm left-handed but can only cut with scissors *right* handed.

2. I took piano for almost 7 years but now I can only pick out the top hand of most songs (only if there's not more than 2 sharps or flats!). I was really good at memorizing how a song sounded and could replicate it, but never really learned to read the notes! Hope my piano teacher never reads this!!

3. I was supposed to be born on Christmas, but was 3 weeks overdue when I finally decided to show up on January 15th. My mom always teases me that I was too busy talking and saying goodbye to all my friends in Heaven! Me? Talk a lot? and Late? Never!*!*!

4. I do a pretty good E.T. voice imitation that my sisters try to get me to do often (but I'm embarrassed to do!)

5. I belong to the LDS (Mormon) Church--something that used to be pretty rare, but is becoming much more common and "in the spotlight" these days. Please feel free to ask any questions you have so I can clear up any misconceptions--there's A LOT out there!

6. 3 of my 4 kids were born on the 23rd of a month--without any planning, scheduling, or intervention on my part!

7. In my "previous life" (B.C.--Before Children!), I graduated cum laude from college and placed nationally at 2 BPOA (Business Professionals of America) Competitions. I tell you this not to boast, but to remind myself that I *did* once have working brain cells!!

Well, that's all about ME for now...I'm tagging:
Lorraine, my awesome SBS Sista! http://taviascharmsfavoritethings.blogspot.com/
Dannie, another super creative SBS Sister. http://danniesdesigns.typepad.com/
My Sister IRL, Monica (and her sweet baby Eliot!) http://eliotandhisparents.blogspot.com/

Me and my oldest are also 23s. It's the coolest every. My DH and 2nd born are both 31s. Our next kid will probably ruin the pattern. I can't believe you were 3 weeks overdue! Your poor mother. I guess it always makes for a great story, even tho it was probably mighty frustrating for her back in the day. Loved learning about you. I'm LDS, too BTW.

Hey Melissa - loved reading your seven random facts - it has been a lot of fun doing this! Both of my kids were born on the 17th one month apart and my husband and I have birthdays one month apart both on the 10th of the month - strange how that is!!
