Meme Monday #5

Aisha over at Leaf Float Down River has given to me this wonderful Blogging with a purpose award. I'm going to pass this award onto

The Edwards

Stray Thoughts

Taking The Challenge

To Know Him

I would like to thank Aisha for thinking of me when she passed along this award..

Courtney over at Life with two beautiful Girls!has tagged me for a food meme.


1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.

2. Share 5 facts about yourself.

3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them)

4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

Hummmm a food meme.. what 5 facts can I say about food????? Wonder if I say I like it will that count as one? ;)

1) Last Monday night I cooked a turkey and we had a Thanksgiving dinner of sorts.. and ate turkey pretty much the rest of the week.

2) My DH is a picky eater so we find a handful of things that he will eat and we tend to do them over and over.. If I find a new recipe that I think he will like I show it to him, He is normally willing to try a new one(if everything in it is stuff he likes) But if he doesn't like it I don't make it a 2nd time.

3) I don't like too many veggies.. and Never raw.. well celery I will eat if I can dip it into blue cheese dressing or ranch.. but raw carrots and such no thank you.. well for that matter I don't like carrots at all be it cooked or raw.

4) I love fruit so I don't feel too bad about not liking veggies :)

5) Desserts, OH YEAH.. all sorts of them as you can tell from my lack of will power to start losing weight

Now I will tag

I was also tagged by Aisha for two memes. The 7 weird thing about me meme. and the message in a bottle Meme.

The 7 weird thing meme. I did this one before but I'm sure I can come up with 7 more weird things about me.. Seeing as how my children think I'm weird. LOL.

1) 99% of the time if I'm at home my hair is up in a pony tail. Even if I had done my hair that day to look nice.. There is just some weird habit I have that when I sit down at the computer, or I'm working around the house or playing with the kids I like my hair pulled back.. BUT the second I sit down to watch tv or whatever I always pull the pony tail holder out of my hair.. along these sames line if you see me with my hair down 9 times out of 10 there will be a hair band on my wrist.

2) it drives me crazy when my DH channel surfs, you know turns on the tv and flips though the channels only leaving it on one show for two minutes or less then on to the next channel and he can do that for hours. BUT I find myself doing the same thing while driving down the road with the radio.. If there isn't a song I want to sing to while driving down the road I'm on to the next station until I find a song I like

3) I had a veil that I planned to wear when I got married and about 15 minutes before the wedding, I changed my mind.. I didn't really want to wear a long veil after all.. drove my mother and both of my grandmothers crazy that I was flatly refusing to wear it. Thankfully.. I had planned a removable veil with my head piece. See the plan was to wear the long veil for the wedding and remove it for the reception. But there was just something about covering the cut out heart on the back of my dress that I just didn't like so figured it was my day I can do what I want.

4) in my book toilet paper should go over the roll if it is going under it is on wrong.

5) I can have two days worth of dishes sitting in my kitchen sink and it doesn't bug me at all(except for the fact that I'm going to have to wash those dishes then that bugs me. LOL) BUT if someone leaves the kitchen cabinet door open it drives m crazy .

6) when I was a kid and teenager(well up until I got married really) I would sleep on top of my bedspread with just a tiny blanket pulled up over me.. So I wouldn't have to make my bed in the morning just fold the blanket and sit it at the end of my bed..

7) for #7 I guess it is weird that I have done this twice and didn't have to come up with any double answers. :P

I too wear my hair up in a pony tail when I am at home and I am 56. My son just laughs at me. I enjoyed reading your MM.
