Tag, I'm "IT"

Sista Smiff tagged me to complete this meme. I'm not sure how or why she picked me, but I'm willing to take the opportunity to have somebody provide a blog topic to me...

Rules of the game: Quickly write 8 random facts/habits about myself. Then, tag eight more people to play.
  1. Sista Smiff was talking about her acrylic nails and that she had to get rid of them for nursing school. I also have acrylic nails and have consistently had them for about six or seven years. I started getting them while I was waiting tables; my nail polish would chip and my brittle nails would break and peel. The acrylics are way more durable. However, I always have them very short and people often ask me if they are my real nails or not. I'm not a fan of having daggers off the ends of my fingers. My favorite nail color: OPI's "I'm Not Really a Waitress."
  2. I looooove Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Mmmmm.... Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.
  3. However, I'm trying to lose a few pounds right now and I can't even remember when the last time I indulged in some Mac & Cheese. As a matter of fact, right now I have an unopened box of Samoa Girl Scout Cookies in the pantry. They've been there for months; normally those won't last longer than 24 hours around me. Dumb diet.
  4. I always said that I wasn't really interested in getting married and/or having kids. But, then I met Dave... I am amazed at how simply finding the right person can completely change your mind about such a big decision. I think we would be great parents together...
  5. My mom is in the process of selling the house where I grew up. The whole thing is very strange to me. We built and moved into the house when I was five years old. Where will my mom live? How will we have family barbeques in a backyard that isn't the one where my sister and I played hide and seek? My little brother was born when we lived in that house... I'll be honest: I am not a fan of her selling that house. But, life must go on, I guess.
  6. I like to take naps. As a matter of fact, I'm feeling a bit sleepy right now. I plan on taking a nap at least five of seven days a week throughout this summer. *YAWN*
  7. I am addicted to my Webkinz pet, Daisy.
  8. In exactly two weeks, I will be on the beach in Mexico, cocktail in hand, feet in the sand. Life is beautiful.

I'm not going to tag anyone, but if you need a blog topic, feel free to take this one. I always enjoy learning random things about my blogging friends!

I've never had acrylic nails and probably won't ever get them. But if I do, I'll keep mine short, too.

I had acrylics once...tore one off & it took my nail with it. Never again.

The 'waitress' polish seems to be a fave of many.

What do people who ARE really a waitress wear? "I'm really a waitress"? Or, "I'm not really a car salesman"?

PS - I'd be honored to have a baby with you. As long as we can name him Dave Junior. Or Bob.

Thing about getting the nails off is my fingers are SO SORE. The fingertips haven't touched anything and it's almost like learning to play the guitar...they have to toughen up. I'm letting the real ones grow. Or heck, I may get them thangs put back on if I can't stand it bad enough.

My mother sold our family home in 1993. I'm surprised it doesn't tear me up to think about it, but, it doesn't. I'll drive past it once every couple years.

A good boy name....Reggie. Nobody names their boys Reggie. Or Aloyisus.

Thanks for playing! I picked you cause I knew you'd have interesting tidbits about yourself! I love reading you and Dave. And by the way, next time you two mozy into Nashville, you best be calling me!

You and Dave both answered my I am embarrassed to ask question...being a fairly new blogger and all. I had acrylics while I was a nurse...not good. I have been on a diet for 50 years...I finally HAD to cut out the fat and cholesterol or, well, die. I have lost 31 pounds but haven't had anything good to eat since last September.
