I've been tagged!

Ok..... so my friend Rachel tagged me. I am supposed to share 7 weird/ random things about myself and then tag a fellow blogger to do the same. So here it goes...

1.) I love Country music and I am a big fan of Dolly Parton.... ya, I know who would have thought. But, I am! I am determined to somehow make a family trip that at least stops at Dollywood.

2.) My favorite TV show of all time is the "Andy Griffith Show". I have the first 5 season's on DVD and they are often on like background music in my house. I'm tellin ya anytime you feel stressed or like the world is just a little too chaotic, take a little trip back to Mayberry and it will make everything seem a little better. :)

3.) One of my favorite things to do is to Scrap Book. I don't get to do it as often as I would like, but it is something I love getting lost in. It isn't always easy to get all my "stuff" out and scrap with the kids around and on me a lot of the time but when I get a set time to do it I find it extremely therapeutic.

4.) This is the "weird" one on the list: I am very picky about milk. I don't generally drink a lot of milk but when I do... I have certain standards. I think I had a few bad experiences with milk as a kid. I can't drink milk from just anywhere. I must know where it came from and anything but non-fat screams "gag" to me. I like ice in my milk and my milk must be extremely COLD!!!!!!! I can't stand colored cereals that make the milk any other color than white and drinking milk out of the bowl is a severe NO-NO for me. I guess you could call me a "milk snob".

5.) I love old movies. We don't have cable right now but when we did I think the #1 channel we watched (ok... I watched) was TCM (Turner Classic Movies). If you asked me my favorite movies I don't think one of them would have been made in the last 40 years. I love stars like John Wayne, Bette Davis, Jimmy Stewart, Judy Garland, Gary Cooper, June Allyson...... I love the "Golden Years" of Hollywood. I know I got this love from my mom. I love chilly days at home, something simmering in the crock pot, maybe a couple loads of laundry or a craft project to work on and a great old movie to sit down in front of . Ahhhhh...... good times ;)

6.) Ok so there is one more weird one..... I have a "thing" with crooked pictures or anything hanging on the wall and isn't straight.Anytime I am at a doctor's office or even sometimes at other people's houses and I see a picture that isn't hanging straight, it takes all I have within me not to level it out. I know it is crazy! But it is true. I am a big advocate for sticky putty on the back corners of frames. So for future notice, if one day I am at your house and you see me slightly straighten a picture frame, PLEASE do not take it personally...... I can't help myself! :)

7.) And for the last one.... this one you may already know... I LOVE MY FAMILY!!!!! I have been extremely blessed to have two beautiful girls that are my heart's delight and to have an amazing husband who astounds me daily by his strength of character and compassionate heart. I could not have asked for a better partner in life and father for my kids. He is my answer to prayer and my right arm. I stand in awe of these three amazing people that I get to share my life with. WOW!!!!!

Ok so now I get to tag someone else....... I am tagging Riva and Mary Dapelo! You're It!!!! :)
