I've been hit, I've been hit.....I mean TAGGED!!!

So I woke up this morning and made my usual hour long commute to work. It's going to be a really busy next two days for me as It's month-end and there is a board meeting on Tuesday, so I may not have time to visit all my usual blogs and show love to new blogs I've found. So I apologize!

Anyway, when I got to work this morning, I logged onto my blog to check out all the new comments I received overnight and I was shocked to find out I had been tagged by


Sorry, I'm still new to the blog world and don't know how to just put her name so that when you click on it, it links directly to her site. Feel free to comment and let me know how. =)

Anyway you have to check her out. She is hilarious and I love reading about her craft ideas, recipes (OMG you have to read her post on APPLE PIE) and random posts about everyday life.

Thank you so much for tagging me, I feel so honored!!

So here's the deal.

1) Link to the person or persons who tagged you. - YUP DID THIS CHECK!

2. Post the rules on your blog. - UM ISN'T THIS WHAT I'M DOING NOW?

3. Write six random and/or revealing things about yourself. -

4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them. - OKAY THIS SHOULD BE EASY.

5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog. - DO I HAVE TO! BUT MOM!!

6. Let the tagger know when your post entry is up on your site. - YOU GOT IT!!

Six Random things about me:

1) I am a shop-o-holic. I cannot help it! I just love buying random crap I don't need. It's so bad that if I can't find anything I like or need, I'll just buy random crap for other people. So when I invite you to go shopping with me, you'll wanna come because who knows what you'll get to go home with. I seriously need SAA and a 12 step program to help my addiction. Like my profile says, I have champagne taste on a beer budget. It's no wonder I'm always broke. I'm a sucker for kids selling magazines and cookie dough. I'm the first person you should call up if your kid needs to sell crap for his or her school. Yup I'm the one spending $100 on wrapping paper and stationary I'll probably never use, but hey it's for the kids, right?

2) My favorite bands are 311 and Disturbed. You wouldn't even have guessed that because if you rode in the car with me. I'd most likely be blasting country music. I went on a road trip once from SF to LA with my friend just to be in a music video for Disturbed. I was in their fan club and it was my job to call the radio stations several times a day to request that their songs get played. One day I received an email from the head of the fan asking me if I wanted to be in their new video. Everything you could imagine bad, happened on that road trip. That's a whole blog post in itself. Here's a snippet: I may not have gotten arrested, even though I should have. Who knew driving 105 mph on HWY 5 was against the law and that you have to be insured. Not me? Apparently if you drive over 100 mpg you get thrown in jail and your car inpounded on the spot. It's called recklass driving. Who would have thunk it? Look it was 4am in the morning and I was going on my 2nd day with no sleep. Woe is me right? I did truly have a very good reasons for why I was driving that fast, beside the lack of sleep and wanting to just get home, we were being followed by some crazy driver. He would pull up behind me and put his high beams on, I'd move to the next lane let him pass and he would just move in front of me and slam on his brakes. I had to speed just to get away from him. And the no insurance thing, I just got my car and It's not my fault the paperwork wasn't processed in time. My Dad's favorite line, "How was I supposed to know. Anyway, I'm rambling again, sorry about that. In the end, I was upset to find out that the video had been pulled. Since it was right after 911, MTV refused to play the video because it had falling buildings in it and it reminded them of 911. They found it to be inappropriate. There went my shot at fame and fortune down the drain.

3) When I was little my parents forgot about me at church. Yup can you believe that? What parent does that, I guess ones with 4 crazy children. We were there to pick my brother up from catechism and I was playing on the bike racks. When I went back over to where they were waiting they were gone. I looked up and saw my Mom's friends van driving off with everyone in it. Seriously who forgets their child? Eventually they realized I was missing and my Dad came to pick me up. Do you know how damaging this is to a persons complex? We laugh about it now, but dang that's traumatizing. Still to this day I get angry when I think about that. Oh therapy, can you please fill the void?..........

4) I have this major problem with shoes, I hate wearing them! I am always in Flip Flops. Rain or Shine I have my Flip Flops on I don't care. I also have to wear jeans that cover almost my entire Flip Flop. If my pants do cover my shoe I get all insecure and uncomfortable, which makes me cranky and you don't want to see me cranky. So because of this,people always make comments to me about not having feet. HA HA HA, OKAY people it's getting old, I know my pants are big, it's called Bell Bottoms, the 70's are the new black. Didn't you know?

5) I played on a traveling soccer team for most of my youth. We traveled all over California and I have 2 fake gold medals to prove it. My team was really good and we were State Champions 2 years in a row. This was probably the greatest gift my parents could have ever given to me. I learned a lot about life on the road. I saw my first joint in the parking lot of a hotel in Fresno. I learned about my first Gang in Fresno also, did you know you shouldn't high beam someone driving with their lights off, it's their ploy to attack you. Or something like that. I also experience my first adult movie in Lodi. The girls and I would run from room to room watching the pay per view channel. Back then you could preview movies before being charged for them. A little light would blink on the cable box for about 2 minutes and once it went solid you were billed for the movie. We thought we were slick, we'd run from room to room watching until just before the light turned solid. I guess we weren't so clever, because the next morning when our parents went to check out, some of the rooms had adult movie charges on the bill. Oops. Thank God our parents had a sense of humor and laughed it off. Hey we were only 13 at the time.

6) Last but certainly not least, I can't be away from home for too long or I get panic attacks. This never use to be a problem until the past several years. I don't know what's wrong with me, old age maybe? I don't think it's as simple as just missing my own pillow and bed. It's not that I don't enjoy going on vacations, I just tend to get a little home sick. I could be with everyone in my family and all my friends and I'd say by the 3rd or 4th day I'm in tears over nothing and will just want to go home. So if you want to go on a trip me with, please be patient and have the tissues ready.

So those are 6 random facts about me. I know what you are thinking, I should probably see a therapist. I know this, but shouldn't we all?

So enough about me. It's time for me to TAG 6 of my blogging buddies. Is it you, or you or you?

Lets find out, and the winners are..................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Oh remember I don't know how to do that whole thing where you can just type their name and you click on the name to go to their site. So until I learn how to do that, (hey I'm not always the brightest crayon in the box) you'll just have to deal with me entering their whole blog address.


http://pocketfulofbliss.blogspot.com/ - I love her blog and the pictures she posts of her son are always so cute. I realize she just won an award today and that I'm tagging her, but when you have a great blog like she does, it's inevitable, there's going to have to be autographs to sign.

http://prettygreengirl.com/- I love her blog. She has inspired me to go GREEN. Like I always say, I'm far from perfect and have a long way to go, but she just keeps me motivated. We should do a little something everyday to become more Green.

http://indiechickdesigns.blogspot.com/ and http://toddlerawesome.blogspot.com/- I have to give props where it is due. She did a wonderful job at adding a 3rd column to my blog and a contact me button. It may sound like something small and simple to some of you, but this was a big deal for me. She was very fast and professional and in today's day and age it's really hard to find someone like her. Besides helping out us technically challenged bloggers who are so not computer savvy, she is busy writing her own blog about her life. Oh did I mention her son is so cute! Check out her blogs.

http://3baybchicks.blogspot.com/ - I have to show my love for my local blogger friends. 3 bay chicks are from my hood and it's so refreshing to find blogs that are written near where you live. But it's not just their local status that drives me to their blog on daily basis. They are so funny and when I need a pick me up, I just turn to them. You have to check out their site, but before you do buy some depends and some tissues as they may make you laugh until you pee and or cry. I've got to get me that bright yellow "I hate everyone" sweatshirt. That's so me!

http://decortoadore.blogspot.com/ - I love this blog. I could only pray I to be as creative as she is. I really love the basket she made for her sons room. How cute is that!! I can barely match my clothes in the morning so this is my go to blog when I need great creative ideas. Not to mention she's very Green, you go Girl re-use and re-purpose. My new motto.

http://mamaswithdrama.blogspot.com/ - I LOVE THIS BLOG. It's about exactly what the blog is titled. All the mama drama one could imagine. She's super funny and I look forward to reading her posts every morning. I can't wait to read tomorrows Friday Five, if you haven't read it, be sure to check it out.

Okay, so that's it.

I'd like to thank all the little people who made this blog possible. And to my fans, without you I'd be nothing.
