Tagged again-

Thank you VANESSA!

The Rules: Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
Share 5 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog, OR
Share the 5 top places on your “want to see or want to see again” list, OR
Share 5 things you never pictured being in your future when you were 25 years old.

Tag a minimum of 5, maximum of 10 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. The tagees have a choice of which they want to do.

I've shared random facts about myself before, but I like the "5 things you never pictured being in your future when you were 25" idea - and since that was only 7 years ago, I can mostly remember.....:-)

1. I never EVER dreamed of living in Oklahoma. It's still a little weird when I say it out loud. "Ok-la-hom-a." See what I mean? Even now I think I should have a pilgrim dress on when I say it.

2. I never thought I would raise my hands in worship. (Don't tell my grandparents.) :-)

3. I never thought I would have gone away on a weekend trip with girlfriends -and genuinely had the time of my life. I grew up generally enjoying friendships with guys more, just because they were less complicated. But I've got some friendships formed with ladies I adore -and who love God deeply, and I'm loving that change.

4. I never thought my kids and husband would bring me THIS much joy. I mean, you always hope, but then one day you look around at reality and realize just how good you have it, and know you were too stupid to have arranged it yourself, so you just thank God for His blessing - and try to honor them as such.

5. I never thought I'd write a blog. In fact, if you had suggested the possibility, the name alone would have made me think it was immature or goofy. :-)

I tag Lindsay, Wendy!!, Terry, Jill, and Cindy!

Which Wendy?

How could my BFF ask such a question? Do I know any others? Am I encouraging any others to start a blog? If you must -post your list here, but maybe you'll be inspired?

Heather! Loved your fun facts...#2 made me laugh, and then seriously relate! Thanks for the incite into who you are!

The random/weird part shouldn't be too hard. Here goes...
1. I have a chronice ironing problem: pillow cases, t-shirts, socks, etc. I'm working through it.
2. I did not win the city-wide spelling bee in the 6th grade, but I still think my spelling was correct: S-U-P-R-I-S-E. You don't say SUR-prise, right?
3. I was a cheerleader and even tried out and made it in college. And don't worry - I know how weird that one is.
4. Until very recently I would count the beats of pretty much every song I heard. Freak.
5. If I go a year w/o a car accident or ticket, it's been a slow year.
Yeahhh! I did it! I blogged something! Look at me! I'm blogging! Suprise!!!

Your facts crack me up. I only wish we could spend some more time around each other observing such weirdness firsthand. (And so I could give you MY socks.)
I love you!
