I've Been Tagged!



I have been tagged by my friend Sarah at http://www.strandfam.blogspot.com/ (sorry I can't seem to figure out how to get a link with just a name, some of you more savy bloggers can share the how to's) and this is the first time that I have been tagged and I hope that I do this correctly so here goes:

7 Random and/or weird facts about me:

1. I trained competetively in figure skating for about 8 years and once competed against Nancy Kerrigan.

2. I was captain of my highschool cheerleading squad my junior and senior year.

3. My first car was a little red mustang affectionately known as "Oreo" because a one of my best highschool girlfriends covered my car in oreo cookies one cold night while I was cheering at a basketball game.

4. I am a Food Network junkie with Paula Dean being my favorite celebrity chef. I would absolutely love to be in the audience of her live cooking show.

5. I had no idea where I was going for my honeymoon and would have arrived at our destination of Lake Tahoe completely suprised had my husband not slipped with the location the night before we left. (I gave him clothes for both climates and he had the reponsibility of packing for the appropriate weather, thank goodness he didn't keep the secret and I was able to pack for myself because I was certain that I was going to end up in Hawaii so it sure was nice to be able to add some additional items to the cold weather packing.)

6. I love to clean. Deep cleaning my house is theraputic for me.

7. I also love to run and would love to one day run a marathon.

Figure skating? Wow!! What fun facts ;=) I tell people I trained for the Olympics (ok, not really - but if they guess that I never correct them!) LOL!

Is deep cleaning others' houses therapeutic for you as well? If so...........

Hi Nicole,
I liked reading your random facts about you!! I wanted to help with the linking. When you are posting highlight the words you want to be linked and then in the task bar in the posting box there is a button that looks like the earth with a chain link on it. Click that and a box opens for you to type the web address in. Then you click okay and your word is linked to the site. I loved your post about connor too, I can tell he was a very special boy. I still check in on you guys from time to time and I am glad to see you doing so well.

In Him,
Carla L.
