Tagged....

Ok, so apparently I have been "tagged" by my friend Melanie. I have been blogging for roughly 9 months now and as I have perused other blog sites during this period I have noticed this "tagging" thing but have no clue how it works. I want to be a good sport and use good blogging etiquette so I guess I will humor everyone with some really boring stuff about me. Honestly I dont know if I can come up with 7 things but I will give it my best shot. Regarding the "rules" of tagging 7 random people at the end.....well, considering I dont actually have 7 people that I can tag, I dont think I will be following this one very well. So, here it goes:

7 Random Facts about Me.....

1) I spent 6 years in the Air Force as a Korean Linguist but of that 6 years, only 3 weeks were actually spent in Korea doing the job I was trained for.

2) I have to have a drink of pop first thing in the morning because the fizz feels good on my throat.

3) I have more quirks and pet peeves than I like to admit but one of the biggest pet peeves is that I cant stand poor grammar/english (by people who know better). My quirk list is far too long to even start but my Mother in-law can fill you in sometime.

4) I was a Ballroom Dance Major at BYU....you can see how far that got me.

5) The smell of fresh bread makes me weak in the knees.

6) I once hitchhiked with my roommates at midnight in the middle of southern Utah because my car broke down on the way home from Lake Powell. 3 girls no older than 22 and we caught a ride with a trucker who took us 70 miles to the next town.....not too smart and we are lucky to be alive.

7) I have dreams of writing a book someday

Ok....there it is and that was a very difficult task. My life is not random. That can be good or bad. I think my husband would be a better candidate for providing weird or random facts about me since he thinks I am from another planet sometimes. As far as tagging goes. I tag Alisha and Kellie....here are the "rules"

• Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog, as we all want to know them.
• Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. (or however many you feel like you can tag.) Good Luck.

We all know that your life really hasn't been that boring....you actually are a very interesting person to know (in a good way). So now that you have tagged me, I had better start making up 7 great facts about ME!
