I'm It!

My friend Amy tagged me, and I will answer all the questions, but I'm not going to tag anyone cause I think all my blogger friends have already been tagged.

Here’s how it works: 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 tag others and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

Here we go....

1. I got married when I was 18. Yup 18, almost 19 but none the less, 18. I scared my mom to death, but now have been married for almost 24 years.

2. I love chocolate, candy, sweets and food in general. Love to bake and make goodies for my friends and family. Its my love language. I should've been italian, I would have been a great italian momma saying "Eata eata!!"

3. I hate spiders. I usually scream when I see them, and make my hubby kill them for me. Princesses should never touch spiders. This is why I often wears gloves when I garden so my fingers won't come across one! If I have to kill one, then I will have to use a shoe and beat it to a pulverine so that I KNOW that its dead. It usually is a very dramatic event, with lots of sound effects and the like.

4. I have a fettish for cups. I prefer pretty colored goblets actually. I have a number of them. Rarely do we have a meal in our home without using one of the cool goblets that I may have purchased. I love having a cold glass of water in a really nice cup. Its my princess mentality coming out I guess

5. I'm a bargain hunter, sometimes to the extreme. I have had a poverty mentality in the past that God is getting rid of, and I am choosing to allow Him to remove it. But................. I still love garage sales and a good deal. My grandpa Purves would be proud, he was the garage sale junkie of the family to an extreme.

6. I have 2 middle names. Cheryl Anne Aleitha. Aleitha is after my late Grandma Redner who I never met. Apparently she was an amazing woman. Must have been to have 11 children!!
Anne is just because my parents liked it. When I was a kid I didn't like my name all that much because it was so different. Now I love it!!

7. I've loved music since being a young child. Apparently my kindergarten teacher pulled my mom aside and told her that she had to enroll me in music and singing lessons cause I had music in me. Thanks mom and dad! Too bad I didn't take piano lessons more seriously. I also used to play the clarinet. Ugh! I am grateful for parents who encouraged music in me, and still encourage me. I love to sing, my family endures me singing all the time. I always hum when I'm by myself shopping or working. I love singing silly songs............. especially to Lindsay. She loves every song!

8. I know, I only needed to give 7 details. But this one, well, I would like to get a jewel in my crown for Lord!!!!!! I have changed diapers for 20 years. That's right, 20 years. I am happy to say that the test is over for the most part, and I am truly and eternally grateful that I don't have to do it every day anymore, and that I don't have to change stinky diaper pails anymore after 20 years. woo hoo!!

Cheryl - I saw a cd today that made me think of you. It was Moon River. That's the song wasn't it? I remember a time that you went on a shopping trip with us to Kingston, we were sitting in the back of the car and you were singing that song. I always think of you and that drive home when I hear that song.

Chery, I met you and Syd when you were dating. You stayed at my parents, with a group that came to go skiing. I remember thinking that I'd never seen so many TALL people in one room!
