TAGGED and Totals

Welcome to the New Bloggy Pack members :) Thank you for the comments on the Bruise...it is healing and I was able to go for a GREAT 5.5 mile run yesterday.

I have been TAGGED by some Bloggy Buddies...I think surveys and Tags are fun... The first tagger our enthusiastic Busy Running Mama. This lady is ran an 8 miler this weekend, her longest run to date!! I love to get comments and emails from Tobi!! There were some rules...but I tossed them out, sorry Tobi!!

Write 7 things people may not know about you.

1. I love to give and receive hugs. If we ever meet be prepared for a BIG BEAR hug.

2. I am AFRAID of BIG Dogs have been since I can remember. Once my Grandma and I were riding bikes in Ocean Shores and a dog that looked like Lassie came charging at her and latched on to her pant leg. SCARY!! Someday Muscle Man wants a BIG Dog so I will have to deal with my fear.

3. I Love to read books to my kids and make funny voices. I made up a little song that I sing before the we read our last book "Last Book of the Night, Last Book of the Night. I don't know if you've heard but it's the Last Book of the Night." Little Stud #1, who turns 4 next month, said "Mommy you always sing that," and rolled his eyes.. Hehehe even my kids know I am a DORK!

4. I am a self-admitted DORK. I go to bed Early. I LOVE shows like Gilmore Girls (cried when it was over), One Tree Hill, Ghost Whisperer, and anything Reality TV. I am a Miley Cyrus fan. I can't dance and have zero rhythm. I love office supplies like clicky pens, post-its and highlighters. I laugh at my own jokes. I wear bright crazy clothes. The list goes on and on...

5. You do not want to be around me if I have not eaten. I can go from nice to CRAZY RAGING TALL MOM in a matter of minutes based on my blood sugar. Think The Hulk minus the green and torn clothes. I keep a granola bar in my purse for just such occasions. Those who know and LOVE me keep me well fed.

6. My nose is ALWAYS itchy. Drives me crazy while running. I am always amazed at the Elite Marathon runners, they never seem to get itches or have to pull up or down their clothing. I am telling you Robot or alien DNA in there somewhere..

7. I graduated from Gonzaga University with a Bachelor's Degree in Speech Communications and Public Relations and a Master's Degree in Organizational Leadership. Someday I hope to be able to really use what I learned in my studies.

Gilmore Girls Rocks! I cried when it was over too! And dorkiness is endearing ... I, too, flaunt my dork status.

Lisa said...

I loved Gilmore Girls too! I'm not necessarily afraid of big dogs, but I don't like them. I never had pets growing up and just don't really know how to react to dogs. I hate the shedding and the slobber. Unfortunately my BF wants a big dog someday.

Unknown said...

Loved learning fun things about you!! Maybe someday if I'm lucky enough to meet you in person I'll get a Tall Mom hug!

"27. something you're not wearing? toga"
OMG! Why not?! ;) That's hilarous. I wasn't expecting that! :)

I love me some Miley, too. It doesn't hurt that I have a little girl to blame it on when i turn it up! :)

Big hugs are the best!

Felice Devine said...

Yay! fun post.

I love to read to my son and use funny voices, too. So fun!

Unknown said...

I love these posts, it's neat to get to learn more about people. I say just take the plunge and get yourself a big ole dog, they're great!:) I have 2 labs and a boxer, and I really would like a Great Dane or a Newfoundland...now those are big dogs!
