Let's play tag…

February 2, 2012

I was tagged, not once but twice. The first time by my lovely friend Hilary over at Feeling Beachie and then again a few days later by the sweet Sarah at The Mama Pirate. I decided to give them both their due and write up two posts, since the rules are a little different for each tag meme. Sarah’s will be up in a few days.

Hilary wrote hers from both her and her handsome cat Alex’s perspective. I don’t want to offend any of my critters by choosing one over the others so mine will be solely from my perspective.

1. Describe yourself in 7 words:

helpful, kind, Twilight obsessed, clumsy, lovely (according to the hubby), talkative

2. What keeps you up at night?

Worrying about the kids. And the cat playing at one in the morning!!!! 🙂

3. Who would I like to be?

That’s a tough one. I’m pretty happy with who and what I am. I’ve been incredibly lucky in my life.

4. What am I wearing now?

Cargo pants, white shirt and the ever-present flip-flops.

5. What scares me?

Something happening to my kids or hubby.

6. The best and worst of blogging:

The best: Setting up the blog, learning new things (html and css) and the blogging community. Such great peeps.

The worst: Losing a whole post after working on it for an hour (Yes, I am talking about this one.) The time it involves and not being able to comment and read blogs I am interested in.

7. The last website I visited: so I can finish this post. So sorry it took so long.

8. What is the one thing I would change about myself

I wish I was less of a neat freak and would worry less about what other think.

9. Slankets yes or no?

Snuggies!!!!!! 🙂

10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you:

Hilary is a real life friend of mine who I have known some time. She played a huge part in getting this blog of the ground and her help was invaluable. She’s always bubbly and smiley and a good listener, at least when I’m around and talk her ear off! 🙂

Now it’s my turn to tag some people. It doesn’t specify how many so I’ll stick to 5 since I still have another post to do.

Nicole @ By Word of Mouth Musings

Nicolette @ Working on a Project

Carley @ Tried, Tested and True Mommy

Karen @ Life with Karen

Melissa @ A Wide Line

Come play along… Why should I have all the fun and do all the work!!!! 🙂
