Did ya ever want to know?

My dear sister in Christ, Hope, at Heart and Home tagged me for another meme. This time it's just 7 random things about me, and you know, these days, 7 different things about me can be kinda hard to come up with. What about "If my kids don't take long naps today, I think I'm going to loose my mind!" Will that work? Oh, you're right..that's really more about the kids, and not so much about me. But then again, isn't it always??? And it does reveal something about me, doesn't it? :)

Let's try this again, shall we? Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

  • I like to sew. I even own my own machine. My mom taught me how to sew when I was pretty young, 8 or so, and I made my own Barbie clothes.
  • My ideal vacation would be going to a tropical beach with my husband and dozing under an umbrella all, listening to the sound of the waves crash around me. Kinda like our Mexico trip a couple years ago. That was so incredible...
  • I love to garden and work out in the yard. Yesterday Ethan and I planted petunias in our pots by the front door.
  • I love anything that screams of organization. It's a compulsion, really. My hall closet shelves are labeled "light bulbs," "cleaning supplies," "medicine," etc...and I smile just looking at it. :)
  • Dave and I will have been married 5 years this July! And we are going to plan a trip away together. I'm so excited!
  • I love to swing at the park. Yes, still. :) When I was a kid, I would imagine that I was soaring up to meet the Lord in the air. When you look up at the clouds as you swing, it is an incredible feeling. I like to picture the Lord Jesus, standing in the clouds, calling me home. And I have to admit, this is something I still do. And I highly recommend it!
  • And last, but not least, I am not a germ-o-phobe. Even though I am a nurse. It's terrible, I know, but my kids sometimes share toothbrushes and sippy cups with each other. And I don't even bat an eye.
I'm tagging:
The next step, if you are not interested in playing I will remove your blog info from my list! If you stop in for a visit and want to play - leave a comment and I will be glad to check your blog as well!

To my Meme victims, you now must make your list of 7 and then tag 7 other unsuspecting bloggers!

thanks! that was fun.

shawna said...

am I missing something? I think you only listed 6 things about yourself. :)

dave & rachel said...

oops. :) I went back and edited it. Thanks. Which worked out perfectly anyway, since today when I was at the park, I came up with the swinging one, and I thought, I bet no one but my sister knows THAT about me. :)

shawna said...

:) I was just confused, because both you and Eryn did it. So I was trying to figure out why, I thought my pregnant brain couldn't wrap my mind around how it was suppose to work!

Eryn said...

Boy, do I enjoy your writing. I identified so much with your post last week about your little boy in the restaurant. I cringed for you, but identified So much! We have been there, still are there at times. God builds such humility and then strength in us through these horrible experiences. Anyway, wanted to let you know I enjoy your postings, and think that you sound like a phenomenal mother. And wife. Wish we lived closer to you all!

THanks for sharing, Rachel! That was fun!! It took me a while to come up with 7 things!! My more pressing problem was coming up with 7 friends to share with! I failed on that!! ha ha!!
