Tag - You're It!!

My blogging buddy Justine recently tagged me in a fun game of "Tag - You're It!!" This is kind of a long post, so take a minute to pour a cup of coffee or a glass of sweet tea, grab a comfy seat, and learn some new things about me! First things first, though...

Here Are The Rules:
1. Post these rules  2. You must post 11 random things about yourself 3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post  4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer (this might be hard)  5. Go to their blog and tell them that you've tagged them.

So, here goes...11 random things about me:

1.) I dream of someday living in the country again...wide open spaces, quiet sunrises and sunsets, starry night skies, watching fireflies blink in a pasture at night, sipping sweet tea while sitting on a porch swing with my sweetie, listening to frogs croaking on a nearby pond...there's NOTHING like the country life!

2.) I love being at home, and I am never bored there! I always have at least one project that I am working on to occupy my time.

3.) My parents recently gave me a piano, and I am looking forward to beginning piano lessons in the near future! (Thanks, Mom and Dad!!)

4.) I am not gifted at all when it comes to programming electronics, such as DVD players, VCRs, etc. Actually, I am really lousy at it!!

5.) I used to be an avid cross-stitcher, and even won the blue ribbon several years ago at the county fair on one of my projects!

6.) I LOVE to organize things - really!! - it makes me happy to see things all neat and tidy in bins, baskets and cubbies; labeled and in alphabetical order! Ahhh - such simple joy - ha! ha!

7.) I am only 5'2" tall...but I have always wished that I could be 5'7" tall! I'd looooove to have long legs! (Note: my hubby is 6'4" and my son is 6'3" - so I look like such a shortie standing next to them unless I wear heels!)

8.) I have a goal to lose 10 lbs. by my birthday in May...which means losing 1 lb. a week for 10 weeks.

9.) I would like to learn to speak Italian, and then travel to Italy someday.

10.) I enjoy reading/studying WWII history. (Yes, I learned to embrace my "inner nerdom" a long, long time ago - LOL!)

11.) If my son ever has a daughter, I would like for him to name her Molly - that way I would have my very own "Unsinkable Molly Brown" - hee! hee! (Justin is NOT keen on this idea at all, so my chances of having my very own "Unsinkable Molly Brown" are slim to none - RATS!)

Here are the 11 questions that Justine asked me, along with my answers:

If you could be anyone for a day who would you be? Hmmm...that's a tough one...maybe Princess Kate?
If you could visit anywhere in the world where would you go? England
What was your most memorable birthday? My 40th! My co-workers gave me a surprise party at work, then my sweetie organized a fun dinner with a few friends and was such a fun day!
Do you have any siblings? Yes, one sister - Sarah - who is 3 years younger than me.
What household job is your least favorite? Washing dishes
Chocolate or Vanilla? Definitely CHOCOLATE!!
Give one word that you would use to describe yourself? Supercalafragalisticexpialidocious!
What's your favorite movie of all time? Ferris Bueller's Day Off..."Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." - Quote from Ferris Bueller
Iphone or Blackberry? Iphone
Did you do anything special for Valentine's day? Enjoyed a nice, quiet evening at home with my sweet hubby.
When did you start your blog? February 2010

Here are the people that I am tagging to play along:


And, here are my questions for you...

1.) What is your favorite kind of music?
2.) Are you a dog person or cat person?
3.) City mouse or country mouse at heart?
4.) What is your favorite children's book?
5.) Morning person or night owl?
6.) What is your favorite season?
7.) If you could change professions now, what would you like to do?
8.) What Girl Scout cookie do you love the most?
9.) What is something new that you would like to learn to do?
10.) Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert?
11.) If you could travel back in time, what era/century/decade would you want to visit?

I look forward to seeing your answers and getting to know you better!

Have a WONDERFUL day!



  1. Loved learning more about you Becky! What a fun post. It may take me some time to create my response--but I'll be working on it!
    LOVE your cross-stitch piece!

  2. Wow thanks for playing Becky, I learned so much about you! I'm glad I asked about siblings because ironically I have only one sibling too, a sister named Sarah and she is 2 years younger than me! I am definitely a home body and country girl at heart too! Thanks again for playing, it's a fun way to learn some random tidbits about blogging friends :D

  3. Lovely to learn more about you! We have several things in common too....I bet we would have a hoot together if we ever met! :)


Thanks so much for leaving a comment; I truly value your thoughts, ideas and opinions! Have a blessed day! Becky B.
