Tagged/Honest Scrap

My dear friend tagged me in the blogosphere, now goes my truthtelling and tagging others...

So, what does this award mean? It means – “leftovers, fragments, discarded material, and many times truth and honesty is discarded material, considered fragments and left over.” We tell it like it is and let the scraps fall where they may.

The rules of this lovely award/game of tag is as follows…
A) You must write 10 honest things about yourself that are interesting (of course, right?)
B) Pass the award along to 7 other bloggers that you feel embodies the spirit of Honest Scrap.

1. I'm have a terrible memory--if I have to remember it, I have to write it down. I haven't always been like this--but it is bad. I forget passwords, phone numbers, birthdays, etc.

2. I watch TV shows made for teenagers. It's a guilty pleasure I guess, but I love shows like "Parental Control" on MTV or "The Girls Next Door" on E!. I think this happened working on a college campus and trying to stay up with what students were talking about and pop culture, but what's my excuse now?

3. I'm a fair-weather fan. I never really got into sports, but I like going to live sporting events and I'll throw a great party if a team I'm affiliated with goes on to a big game. With that said, Go Ball State in the GMAC Bowl tonight!

4. I'm a sucker for a new baby. I love the way they smell, their tiny hands and feet. The way they curve against your body like you are the most secure person in their universe. Don't get me wrong, I'm not having any more, but seriously sometimes I just have a need to find one to cuddle!

5. I consider myself a strong democrat and can hold my own when justifying my stance to those who have opposing views. I love these conversations--I think we should have more of them in this country. I want my girls to grow up with their own beliefs and I'll embrace them even if they are different than mine, I look forward to our dinner conversations during the teen years :-) (atleast during the times they are speaking to me)

6. I grew up a daddy's girl and now my mom is one of my best friends. Funny how that works, eh?

7. Somedays I'd rather live anywhere than Indiana, but somehow I planted my feet here and most days that's alright.

8. If I could get on a game show, I think I'd pick "Wheel of Fortune"...and I think I'd win.

9. I love to travel and want to instill that in my girls, but the thought of traveling with them makes my skin crawl. I know I'll have to get over this phobia at some point and I'm sure if given the opportunity an exotic locale would win over my fear.

10. I didn't date much in college...my hubby and I met on a blind date within a year of graduation, we dated 1 year, engaged a year and now married almost 4 with the most beautiful girls in the world for daughters. No turning back now :-)

Now my tags: Jessica, Brooke, Katie, Kristina, Ashley, Jennifer, Lauren *I tagged a few of these as their blogs are due for a little update :-)

Aimee, the girls are growing up so fast! They are precious! I was tagged by M-Louise too, so check mine out when you get the chance. Happy New Year to all of your family!

I love that video! Addy moves so fast but she is a klutz! It does crack me up that they are both so into open-mouth kissing..... A- what's this I am reading about you being ok if Addy & Lilly want to be republicans? Um, that's not ok with me! I cannot believe with all that democratic stock those little angels would be anything other than die-hard dems! I will of course have no problem with them being libertarians but not republicans - that would break my heart. And really, they are already so smart...one could say they have a more complete worldview than a former vice presidential candidate. The rest of the blog was pretty cute! I am still a little appalled about your taste in tv though. No one's perfect;)

I just had to leave a comment for two reasons...

1. I have a Lily and Addie two and a blogspot about them. We spell it a little different, but found you searching for mine "Lily and Addie make four".

2. I was trying to find one of these tag posts because I received one a million years ago and have been thinking I wanted to post one since I've been trying to think of fun and interesting/weird things about me, and I've gotten to about 5 (that I can remember...I too have a terrible memory.

Great names, great blog! :)

PS is that their full names?
Mine are Adeline and Lillian, Addie and Lily.
