Tagged is a part of blogging...

So, as you know(or maybe you don't??), I am new to blogging.  Still don't get the ins and outs of it and am always excited when I get a new follower.  I'm learning that a big part of the blogging world is getting "tagged" and having giveaways.  I don't think I have enough followers for a giveaway, BUT I did have someone tag me!!  "Deviled Megs" is a follower and knows I'm also new to the blogging world.  The purpose of this is to answer question and then tag others.  So, here it goes...again!

1. What was the last thing you ate: a banana

2. What is one of your best childhood memories?
That's a hard one.  I loved playing with the neighborhood kids.  There was a group of 5 girls that played daily, from the time we woke up, until we went to bed!  We played everything...we made big rocks into doll houses, we filmed fake beauty pageants, made up dances, played house, school, watched a ton of movies, kickball, red light, green light etc.  You name it, we did it.  I loved how much we used our imagination.  We rarely sat inside and watched tv or played video games.  We were out making little worlds out of rocks and sticks.  I wish kids still did all of that and got to be kids.  It's so much different now and we were lucky we lived in a neighborhood with so many kids the same age and where it was so safe!

3. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you were older?
I wanted to be a talk show host.  I was convinced that Kathie Lee Gifford and I would have our own show.  I'm still working on that! :)

4. Do you paint your toenails in the winter?
YES! My toenails are always painted.  They may not look perfect in the winter, but they are painted!

5. Do you watch any reality television?  If so,what show is your favorite?
Yes, I watch a lot of reality tv.  I love the New York, Jersey, and OC Housewives and can't wait for the Beverly Hills HW's!!  I also love Rachel Zoe!  Ah-mah-zing!!

6. What were some of the "trends" when you were a kid?
We made string bracelets and wore them all the time..  That was another thing my neighborhood girls and I always did!  We also had jelly bracelets and swatch watches.  I always wore umbros and two t-shirts with my wilsons or tretorns!  Such a cute stage...

7. What is your favorite time of the year? Why?
I LOVE summer.  I love warm weather and being at the cottage.  I like being outside and in the water.  I also love being tan.  But, there's something so fun about the fall.  I almost feel like fall is the new year (maybe from going to school so many years:)).  There's always excitement in the air and people are making plans.  It was always soccer season when we were younger and I loved cool fall days with a soccer game.  So, I decided to chose two seasons!

8. Do you have any hobbies?
I play tennis and I run.  I love tennis and have played in a league the past few years. I don't love to run...yet.  I'm hoping the day that I fall in love will come...sooner, rather than later.  Next week I'm doing a relay for the Detroit Marathon and my leg is in Canada! I've never been to Canada before. I can't wait! I do love race days!

So, now I have to tag some people to do the same thing:
AEOT-Up North Preppy
JMW- A Place to Dwell
Queen Bee Swain



  1. Friendship bracelets were all the rage when I was younger too. I always wished I had the talent to make the really cool designs in multiple colors. I could never master them...

    When we got home from school my mother would say, "go outside and don't come home until it was dark." Maybe when we have kids we will say the same thing!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog and signing up as a new follower.... I haven't been blogging that long either and I totally get stoked when there is a new follower... so am going to sign up on yours too!
