I was tagged!

I got tagged a while ago and have been procrastinating due to the simple fact that I couldn't conjure up 7 creative answers! I mean, I am funny...don't get me wrong....but my funniness may be limited to a handful of one liners. Well, I made an attempt....here it goes.

7 Random Facts

1. I was a vegetarian for 2 years and drove my family crazy because of it!

2. I was consistently the winner of the school spelling bee until 6th grade when I didn't even qualify because I missed "angel" by spelling it "angle".

3. In the 7th grade, my best friend (and I) stole a puppy from a lady's house and told my mom she gifted it to me for my bday, I took it home and convinced my parents to let me keep her. She was a collie, I named her Moose.

4. When I first met Clint I hated him, I hated him for a really long time (in teenage time) until he inevitably became my best friend.

5. I learned from Amy to pour a packet of uncooked, flavored oatmeal over my cold cereal!...I love it!!

6. I have specifically asked my husband to not surprise me with flowers. I think that they are a waste of money and that money would be better spent on a gift that isn't going to end up in the trash can within a week.

7. I had a blond moment at work last week when I asked my boss who is Jewish if he had put up his Christmas lights yet.

And now the game continues.

Candi, Jacque, Tawnya, Ana...you're it!!

Officially on the bandwagon...

Yup, I went and saw Twilight and read the book this weekend, (in that order). I hadn't jumped on the bandwagon simply because I didn't see myself getting wrapped up in a vampire romance novel, but after watching the movie I was itching for more.

Friday night we had a girls night so Jacque, Tawnya, and I headed out to dinner and a movie. Well Twanya had read the book and after the movie she assured me that the book was even better so I couldn't resist and on Saturday morning I ran over to Walmart and picked it up. I finished it last night and I love it! Yup! I am officially all wrapped up in this vampire romance novel!

Well I am going to move on to the rest of the books and I'll have to admit, I am really looking forward to the next movie.
