I got TAGGED!!!

Hey this is so cool!!

I got tagged by Candy, so here goes:

List 7 random things that people may not know about you. The rules are to link the person who sent this to you and leave a comment on their blog so their readers can visit yours. Post the rules on your blog. Share 7 facts about yourself. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, linking their blog. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1.) I moved around a lot as a kid. We moved from Georgia when I was two to Memphis, TN. When I was four we moved to Wylie, TX. When I was six we moved to good ol' Haughton, LA. We've been here for almost 19 years, now it's my "hometown!"

2.) I have always, ALWAYS loved a man in uniform. I am so lucky I got to marry one!!

3.) I am a fleur-de-lis fanatic. I love them!! They are all over my house. I guess you could say they are my whole "motif." They have a good meaning, too. A brief synopsis, it means purity, came from France, translates to 'flower of the lily,' was on tons of royal crests and coats of arms, and finally, the three petals represent faith, wisdom, and chivalry. (My three fave things!!)

4.) Harking back to number two, I have always wanted to be a military wife. I loved the "romance" of sending your man off to be brave (can we say Pearl Harbor?). Little did I know that it is the wife who has to be brave in most cases!! However, even though I have been in the coveted 'clan' for only a short while, thus far, I love it!!

5.) I love action movies. I like romantic comedies, but my absolute, give me the choice, are gun-slingin', car chasin', blow 'em up, shootin' movies. I love the suspense of 'are they gonna make it?!' Romance is all fine and dandy, but I usually end up crying with the characters, and I don't like that (think, The Notebook!!).

6.) I HATE to garden or do any form of yard work. I read Jen's post about buying shrubs and it made me shudder! UGH!! I think that comes from my mom making me get out in the yard in 100+ degree weather with 100% humidity at noon in Louisiana to do yard work, so that one day I'll "know how." As I write this my shrubs need to be pruned, but they can keep on needing it cause I ain't doin' it!!

7.) I love to sew. I like to create things with fabric and a machine (no hand stitching for me!!) that no one else has. Right now I'm making a massive diaper/duffel bag for a friend that a Lab could fit in!!

I think everyone has already been tagged, so you're off the hook!! Plus, I can't figure out how to do links!

Like your facts! I hate the whole shrubs thing too. I say let's just concrete the whole front yard and be done with it :).
