Getting Tagged

April 23, 2012

I’m it again. My friend Leslie over at Time out for Mom tagged me over the weekend. I’ve been tagged before so I know the ropes.

The rules are,

1. Tell 11 things about yourself

2. Tag 11 other people and ask them 11 questions

3. Let them know you have tagged them.

4. Don’t tag someone who has previously been tagged. (Ok, this one will be a bit hard.)

Here are 11 more things about yours truly.

1. I’m finding my way back to baking.

2. I have enjoyed my baking sessions the past few weekends.

3. I’m super happy that my concoctions have received glowing reviews and approval. It makes it so much more fun.

4. Baking relaxes me.

5. I have created a link-up for my new addiction. Instagram Sundays!!! 

6. I’m thinking about creating a link up for my baking endeavors (monthly?). Would you link up your baked goody recipes?

7. I love watching my kids sleep. They all look so peaceful and adorable when they are off in dreamland.

8. Sometimes, it’s hard for me not to lose my patience with hubby’s 85 year old grandma. I remind myself that it’s not easy getting older and one day that may very well be me.

9. I’m excited for my uncles’ arrival from Germany. My uncle, who’s almost like a big brother to me and my 73 year old great-uncle are coming to visit from Germany. My great-uncle has never been here and has only flown once before a gazillion years ago.

10. I’ve been having issues with sleeping through the night this past week. Ugh, I hate when that happens.

11. I am NOT a morning person. If I could, I probably would still sleep in til 10 AM every morning.

Here are Leslie’s questions:

1.   Oreo cookies:  are you a milk dipper or pull them apart and lick the creme inside? Neither, i don’t really eat Oreo cookies.

2.   beach or pool? Both. I love going to the beach, sitting in the sand or walking. But I prefer to swim in a pool where I can see what’s there.

3.  What’s your freak talent? Tough one. Don’t think I have one. Does that mean I’m not a freak?

4.  What’s in your bag? Let’s see. My wallet, my coin purse, usually my phone, my glass case and glasses, my keys, a cosmetic bag with paper, notebook, pens, crayons, chapstick, tissues, advil, tampons(TMI???), lipgloss and lipstick and my Samsung Galaxy tablet.

5.  You are a closet _______  fan? Real Housewives of …

6.  Who is the celebrity you would most like to meet and why? Sandra Bullock. I’ve always admired her and I’d love to speak to her in German. 

7.  Can you put your mascara on with your mouth closed?  (boys, if you are here…pick a substitute) Good question. No, I don’t think so. It’s always slightly open.

8.  Last thing you bought. Groceries. Nothing exciting here, I’m afraid.

9.  The best part of waking up is _____? Knowing there is a cup of coffee or tea waiting for me.

10.  You have one phone call – who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters!!! 🙂 Hmmm, I’d call the hubby. One phone call would mean I’m in jail, right? So, yes, hubby, so he can come bail me out.

11.  What is your favourite thing about the opposite sex? Stubble. I like a bit of facial hair and a bit of stubble can look very sexy.

My turn to ask 11 questions:

1. What are you doing right now? (Other than doing this post.)

2. What do you or don’t you like about rain?

3. Did you like getting tagged?

4. Did you play tag as a child?

5. Do you (or someone in your family) play an instrument? Which one?

6. Where in the world would you love to travel to?

7. What is your favorite work-out?

8. Does your significant other snore?

9. What is your favorite blogging spot?

10. Tea, with lemon and honey or sugar and cream?

11. Which book are you reading right now?

Ok, my turn to tag some lovely people:

1. Kristen at A Little Something for Me

2. Ali at My Suitcase full of Tricks

3. Nicolette at Working on a Project

4. Liz at A Nut in a Nutshell

5. Elizabeth at My Life such as it Is

7. Stasha at The Good Life

8. Melissa at A wide Line

9. Kate at On the Go Momma

10. Kate at Sluiter Nation

11. Jamie at My Chosen Chaos

Phew. I don’t think, I have tagged any of these lovely ladies before. If I have, my bet. Feel free to play along and continue this came of tag but don’t feel as though you have to. It’s supposed to be a fun little thing.

Have a wonderful day!!!  xo, Susi





I'm it… Tag #3

February 16, 2012

Third time’s the charm is how the saying goes, right? Well then, this should be my best tag, yet. The lovely Leslie from Time out for Mom tagged me in this meme and since I so enjoy her blog and love the questions she came up with I couldn’t say no. You really should go and check out her corner of the blogosphere. She’s awesome!!!

The Rules:

  • You must post these rules.
  • Each person must post 11 things about herself on their blog.
  • Answer the questions the “tagger” listed for you in her post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
  • Choose 11 people to tag and link to them in the post.
  • Let each blogger know that you have tagged them.

If you would like to know 11 “fascinating” things about me click here. The link will take you to one of my earlier tagged posts.

Here are the 11 questions asked by the lovely Leslie:

1.   Right side or left side of the bed? Left side, which is kinda funny because before we moved to this house and got our new bed I used to sleep on the right side.

2.   Is your alarm switched to the radio (and what station), or do you need that Buzz, Buzz, Buzz!? Radio. 97.9 WRMF, our local adult contemporary station. Love the morning show.
3.   Star Trek, or Star Wars?   Include one movie quote. I have to say Star Trek, only because the hubby is a trekkie. “Captain were we to go by the book, hours would seem like days.” (Hubby helped with this one.)
4.  If you could be one fictional character, who would you be, and why? Going with my obsession with all things vampire I would have to say I’d like to be Alice Cullen. She can see the future, is an awesome fighter, and plans a gorgeous wedding. Oh yeah, and she can live forever.
5.  If someone wrote your biography, what would the title be? A biography about me… no way. Would never happen.
Bonus points for including a book cover.   Well, actually no; there’s no points at all.
6.   What’s your superpower? My kids would say I can see through walls and have eyes in the back of my head. How does mommy know what we are up to all the time??? 🙂
7.   Your picture is on the front page of the newspaper!  What’s the headline? Slip and Fall: Mother of 3 breaks legs slipping on Legos
8.   What was your favourite toy as a child?  Show your work. I can’t think of one specific toy that I adored over all others. I used to love building puzzles and paint by numbers. My girls have some of my sister’s and I masterworks hanging in their rooms.
9.   I’m having a potluck dinner party – what do you bring? My chicken salad. See recipe here.
Again, bonus points for sharing the recipe.   you still think there’s a secret point system dontcha?
10.   If you had access to a time machine – where, or rather, When, are you going? I would go back to just before my grandma died unexpectedly and give her one more hug. It still bothers me that I wasn’t able to see her for 5 years before she died. I’m thankful we were able to stay in touch and see each other because of Skype!!!
11.  If a turtle loses its shell:  is it naked, or homeless?  Explain. I would say both. The shell grows with the turtle and since it also uses it to hide inside I guess it would be considered a home. So yes, both.


I’m supposed to tag people now. But since I have already done this twice and really don’t want to make people do anything. I’m asking YOU to tag along and either answer Leslie’s questions or leave a comment. I’m sure I can come up with 11 questions for you. 🙂 Have a fun and tag free day!!!
