It's my first offical tag evah! What a surprise, Gwen! Okay here are the instructions and here's what I gotta do:

I was tagged by Gwen. This is her blog ~ We met Gwen, Jenny and Mia on our pick-up trip and LOVE their little girl, Mia. We're hoping to all reunite at the Grand Tikal again one day soon!

The rules are to link the person who sent this and leave a comment on their blog so their readers can visit yours~Post the rules on your blog~Share 7 strange/weird facts about yourself~Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and link their blog~Let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So, here are 7 wierd/strange facts about myself.

1) I'm a tit for tat girl. I keep a mental score of everything. It's my biggest ball and chain that I would love to change about myself.

2) I was a run away bride at age 26. Well, not really. I called my wedding off about a month before it was to take place.

3) I work Part-time at my church, a far cry away from corpoarte America where I worked for 10 plus years.

4) I was going to be a teacher, but I got kicked out of the program my Junior year of college. They just didn't think I was the teacher type. ;-(

5) I was a Hairband Heavy Metal chick: Def Leopard, Areosmith, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Van Halen...saw them all wearing my own big hair and wearing spandex!

6) I can't stand people making me wait. My red-head temper flares in seconds! I'm not talking about people running late. It's more of, um, well, I'll just make it easy on myself and use my husband as an example! He'll ask me to hand him something or toss something downstairs. So within seconds, I'll grab it and come to the balcony to throw it to him. But he's not there. Gary? Gary? "Yeah, Just a sec hon, I'm re-wiring the surround system, I'll be right there." ??? So I was doing something, he needed something, I stopped what I was doing to assist him, now he's still doing something and I'm just standing there waiting on him. ;-)

7) I don't know how I got here, but I'm about one step away from orthepedic shoes! I love shoes, I collect shoes. Well, at least I used to. But for the last two years, I have gone from 50 various styles of heels to one pair of brown wedges in the summer and one pair of black wedges. In the winter, I have one pair of black shoes, comfy, no heels. And one pair of black shoes. Occassionally, the tennis shoe will make an appearance. I know that comfy pretty shoes are out there, I just can't bring myself to spend more than $25 on a pair of shoes. So, under $25 usually equates to really uncomfortable shoes. sigh

Okay, so that's me! Here are my 7 tags:

Those were some pretty good facts, very insightful! I also love your boys outfits. I have one son home from Guatemala, our tastes must be the same. I see a lot of the same clothes!
