Seven facts about me

My friend Melissa at Frugal Creativity is one of the sweetest women I know so when she tagged me with the 7 Facts Award I was excited to do it. Why? ‘Cause it could only mean two things: 1) She wants to know more about me. 2) She likes me. LOL

Thanks Melissa!

image Here are the rules:

1- Copy the Award Picture and add it to your blog
2- Thank and Link back to the person who awarded it to you
3- Share 7 Facts about yourself
4- Give 15 other bloggers this award

Seven facts about myself? Hmmm… Let me see if I can think of some things I haven’t already told you or something you may have forgotten:

  1. I have a personal rule that I do not date men named Mark. Seems silly, right? Well, my first love’s name is Mark. My oldest daughter’s father’s name is Mark. I recall there being another Mark reason, but for the life of me I can’t remember what it is. Subconscious amnesia?
  2. I’ve given birth to two preemies and two full-term babies. Two 4 pounds and something and two 6 pounds and something.
  3. All of my best friends have been men. I had a couple (yup, probably only two) of close girlfriends in high school and the two closest female friends I have now I’ve only known for less than a year and six years. My best friends (x 3 guys) I’ve known for more than 20 years and we talk/communicate on a regular basis.
  4. I don’t normally know the names of people who live right next door to me.
  5. When I was in elementary school I was a bully. Sorry if that offends or bothers some; I know that’s a serious topic nowadays.
  6. I am tired of reading non-fiction books. I have loved to read since I was old enough to sound out a word. It’s time to get back to enjoying some good novels just for the fun of it.
  7. In a way, I’ve always been a little insecure—or is that self depreciating? Only my closest friends (and my oldest daughter) know how critical I am of myself and the reactions of others toward me. That includes when no one leaves comments on my posts. {Embarrassed guffaw-snort-giggle.}

Now this is the part of these little thingies that are hard for me. Who to pass it on to? I always normally never rarely tag as many people as it says to, but I’ll do my best:

  1. I have to tag Lin of Duck and Wheel with String because she really loves to do these. {Evil giggle.}
  2. Valerie at Frugal Family Fun Blog because she is just a doggone fun and interesting person.
  3. The Minus the Bars star Don who writes the most compelling posts.
  4. One fabulous writer Diane Estrella who’s funny, knowledgeable and extra caring.
  5. TwillyPop because I just have to know more about her ‘cause she creates such beauty.
  6. My daughter Amber who is the newbie – and currently inactive – blogger of SunniSweets. Maybe this’ll draw her out!
  7. One of my first blogging friend, Tammy, at Mom Knows Everything. I’ll always love her!
  8. The most gorgeous bloggers I know: Tina at Mummy Diaries.

Well, that’s all I can come up with right now… My eyes are swinty and burning from going to bed late each night so I’m gonna turn in. Before you go, I’d love to see your 7 things – comment below or post on your blog.



  1. Oh my goodness, I've been tagged!! Thanks, Petula!! It was so nice to learn a bit more about you too. :-) It's hard to picture you as a bully!!!!

  2. Thanks for playing along! I enjoyed reading your 7 facts!

    I can understand about #1 and relate to #3. I've had more male friends than female friends, at least until a few years ago.

    And I can definitely relate to #7! I'm with you on that.


What's up men & women of my world! I am all a-giggle that you decided to comment. You're what make this world go 'round... ya know? This "world." I love you! Smooches. :-)
