I’ve Been Tagged…

April 23, 2008

By the ever fabulous Elisabeth Naughton.  I can’t wait to see her cover!  Hurry up copyright issue thingies!  LOL

Okay, six random things about me…

  1. I love music, lots of it, all styles… but I’m an extreme fan of Daughtry.  Yes, I’m a Daughtry fangirl and I’m proud of it!  LOL
  2. I love fruit.  I eat it every day, lots of it!  I honestly don’t think there is a fruit out there that I don’t like… well, of the ones I’ve tried.  Give me fruit and give me happiness!  LOL
  3. I met my DH in the US Navy.  Yes, I was a Navy girl for a full 18 months.  When I first met him, I couldn’t stand him.  He grated on my nerves, a lot.  I thought he had the ego of an elephant.  Just goes to show first impressions aren’t always correct.
  4. I despise summer.  Not the flowers or the fun people have but the sweltering heat.  I hate it.  I hate to sweat while I’m not even exerting myself.  Blech.  Gross.  Disgusting.
  5. I get annoyed when people who say they aren’t going to change once they get their big break and then all of a sudden they don’t have the time to talk to you anymore.  It’s really lovely, that.   Pfft.
  6. I love Silhouette (Harlequin) Sheik books… especially those from Susan Mallery and Kristi Gold.  Sheiks, baby!

So there you have it.  Six things about me.

Elisabeth- I think since you tagged me, that I should get an ARC of your book.   Don’t you all agree?  Hee!

For All of You Married Ladies Out There…

May 24, 2007

Doing a nice survey for Holly… Two posts in one day! Crazy!

How did he propose? Or did he at all?
Hubby proposed to me my junior year in college, on choir tour on Spring break. We were singing at my high school (I went to boarding school) that night, and he took me around town while the others were eating dinner. He tried taking me to the church I attended while at school, but it was locked. He tried walking to the gazebo in the center of town, but it was closed due to the town election (it was a Tuesday night). So, frustrated beyond belief, he took me back to the school chapel where our concert was going to be held, got down on one knee, and proposed. That night both my parents, my sister, his parents and grandparents attended the concert, so we announced it afterward (though my sister had already noticed the ring).

How long were you together before he did?
2 years

When did you get married (Time of year, date, time of day, etc)?
September 4th, 10am. It was early, because I wanted the sunlight to look a specific way. It meant getting up at 4am for hair. Yeah.

Was it big or small? Did you regret doing it one way or the other (i.e. if it was small and intimate, do you regret not having a larger celebration?)?
Ours was probably considered mid-size, about 100 people. I was content with the size. It had a good mix of our family and friends.

Where did you register? What’s the best gift you received?
We registered at JC Penney, Sears, and Kitchens Etc. (now doesn’t exist). Best gift was a basket of country items including a beautiful antique-looking bowl, place settings, etc. And my mother and sisters’ shower gift – a laundry basket of cleaning supplies.

Who was your Maid of Honor? Do you still have contact with her?
I had two maids of honor, and they were my sisters. Still have plenty of contact with them.

What were your colors?
Blue and yellow – country.

Any tips for cutting corners you can offer?
Well, we didn’t get a videographer,  which I actually regret. We had free beer and wine for the cocktail hour at the reception, then had open bar for soda and juice, but paid drinks for the rest of the time.

Any advice for the bride-to-be?
Go with the flow. On the actual day, just go with whatever happens and let everyone else worry about it. Oh, and in planning, remember – it’s YOUR wedding. It is not your mother’s, however she wants to live through you. It’s not your soon-to-be mother-in-law, who is insistent in choosing what she’s paying for (luckily I didn’t have that problem, but I definitely know someone who did). It’s your day – get what YOU want. Do as little or as much as you want, and ENJOY it.

8 Things About Me

May 13, 2007

Here are the rules…

The Rules:
1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Here are my answers ~
Side note: This will be hard, since I already did thirteen things last week about me, but here goes…

  1. I’m a middle child.
  2. I’m growing my hair out to give to a group like Locks of Love.
  3. I love fruits and vegetables.
  4. My ultimate goal is to be able to stay home to write and edit for my living. Sigh. A good dream… 😛
  5. My husband really is my best friend.
  6. The rooster scenes in The Family Guy drive me crazy.
  7. I’m loving having blogs. Yet I can’t believe that anyone would want to hear anything I have to say, lol.
  8. My “new at two” for a new Verizon phone just came up, and I want to hold out until they make a purple flip phone.

I’m not going to tag anyone since everyone I know has already done this, lol.
