Happy 4th of July... and 7 things....

Happy 4th of July!  I celebrated by hanging out at home with Brian, making my first ever batch of jam (strawberry - yum!) and we're probably going to go by the neighbors house in a little while to say hi.  Hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend!

So last week, Heather tagged me on her blog. Heather and I have been friends for years thanks to our scrappin' addictions -- both digi and paper.  We're part of a small crowd Heather and I... most people seem to do one or another! Go check out her blog if you get a chance - I enjoy reading about her adventures in raising her kids and seeing her beautiful work. :)

“This award is to recognize good design, writing, photos, etc.; to network amongst other bloggers; inspire content ideas, etc.

Conditions of the award stipulate that I need to share seven things about myself and then pass on this award to other wonderful bloggers.”

So here are my seven things:

1.  I'm a Pieces who hates water.  Odd right?  I don't like being in water, near water or really even drinking water.  I drink water because I have to.  And I'm a terrible swimmer.  That said, I do love taking showers and I usually take two a day.  One before leaving to go to work, one before bed.

2.  If I won the lottery, I'd pay off the mortgage, finish our house and travel the world.  Not necessarily in that order.

3. I'm a homebody.  Nothing better than no plans and a weekend at home!  But that rarely happens.  Usually there is something planned.  Even if we are at home!

4. I want to move back to the Sacramento area, but I wish we could pick up our entire house and move it with us.  And our neighbors.  And our jobs.  Not possible. sigh.

5.  I have a major sweet tooth and I struggle some days to control it!  In my life, I best had it under control in college.... go figure.  When your eating habits are supposed to be at their worst.

6.  I've done most crafts you can think of.  Only a few remain that I have not.... candle making and soap making are actually the only ones that come to mind.

7. As much as I love to travel, I still have not travelled internationally.  I don't even have my passport!  Brian and I need to rectify this situation soon I think! :)

Those are my 7 things!   Now I’m tagging:

1. Anna
2. Megan
3. Nancy (I think this means you're double tagged now!)
4. Kiersten
5. Julie ;)
6. Nati
And really, anyone who is reading this.... please consider yourself tagged!  I'd love to read a few random things about everyone!


  1. Awwwwwwwwwwwww thanks for the award dearest!!! I have never seen this one before...and I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee your list... I would do the same thing if I won the lottery! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. I'm a total homebody too, but every now and then I get cabin fever and HAVE to get out. I laughed at your Pisces who hates water comment. I didn't think that was possible!

  3. Thanks for including me! Mostly I want to duplicate your list and simply repost it. I'm a huge home body . . . if I won the lottery I would start with buying a house and then traveling. The only real difference is that I have a passport (in college, Justin & I went to Switzerland where he presented his Master's thesis at a conference . . . but that sums up my world travels).

    But later on, after the littles go to bed I'll work on compiling my own list.

  4. Every time I learn something new about you, I'm surprised at how much we have in common! I can relate to almost everything on the list.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving me some love! I truly appreciate it and will return the love whenever I can! Due to spam, all comments are moderated, so it will show up as soon as I have a chance to see it! :)
