1. Melanie just tempted me tooooo much on her recent comment here about my tattoo. SHE said she's surprised I only have one............well I DON'T just have one!!!!!!! I have TWO!!!! A girl just canNOT keep any secrets from her girlfriends, can she???? LOL So.......you know about my Memory Fairy above my right ankle........I also have a Blue Rose and Butterfly on my upper left chest. That was actually my first one......and a permanent reminder of my and dh's best friend who was killed. His last name was Rose.......hence, a blue rose!! Both of our kiddos loved him dearly and they each have one of his names added legally to their middle names also. I have struggled with this immensely........but it was the day after my and dh's wedding anniversary in June and it makes it a very bittersweet time. I'll try not to disappear then too as I can tend to do. The photos are of my tattoos........what do you think??? And yes, I DID shave my legs for this!!! LOL
Now to some happier facts...........whew!! If you know me I really hate being sad.........so let's pep it up!!!!
2. I cannot handle spicy foods..........at all!!! I used to before my pregnancies, but have never been able to in all the years since!
3. I love watching those Judge shows...........no seriously........I have learned lots of little legal tidbits!!!
4. I'm an all-or-nothing person. I realllllllllllly try to work on this.........but I tend to either do something all the way or just totally neglect it!!!
5. I love to fish!! Okay, I love to hold the pole and read a book and have dh and ds bait the hook and do all the other stuff!! LOL Now.......in my defense.........I USED to do all of it.......and not mind at all......I think I'm getting old.....or spoiled!!! LOL 'Cuz now I just want to be able to say, "I caught a fish!" and be finished!!!
6. I'm deathly afraid of heights!! Yes, I did manage to pass my Colorado State Firefighter exams....including the climbing up the ladder one story and "rescuing" someone..........but barely!!! Going anywhere near that railing/divider thingy at the mall on the second level is just not an option! I used to make the kids walk on the other side of me next to the store openings to be that far away from it!!! Now they love to look over the edge and freak me out!!!
7. I'm kind of a germ-aphobe. Not Howie Mandel or Monk bad..........but I DO always carry Antibacterial wipes with me!!!
Now aren't you all just soooooooooo wide awake and fascinated with me????!!!! ROFL Any new blogging buddies or any who've not been tagged yet..........consider yourself TAGGED!!!!
Okeedokee..........now for one of my newest Rileys!!!!!!! I got 9 of them.........but I just had to start with a summery feeling one!!! So here's Waterski Riley! And it's my very first Tent Topper card!!! I also used my new Tiny Bubbles CB Folder!! And some fun dp that was in the Blog Candy I won from Melanie!! And some funky sheer and blue ribbon!! Of COURSE I had to use a bit of stickles on the waves and do some piercing!!! LOL
