I've Been Tagged!

I've been tagged by Laura @ The Purse Blogger!  I've really enjoyed getting to know Laura and following her advertures on her great blog.  Be sure to read this story of how she and her husband met.

I'm supposed to answer Laura's eight questions, then come up with eight of my own questions, and then tag eight bloggers to answer my questions.
Laura's questions for me are:

1. How old were you when you had your first kiss? 14.  I was terrified the whole time.

2. What is your favorite cereal?  Granola.  I also love those Chocolate Cheerios (awesome with strawberries), but I suspect they're not so good for me. . .

3. Are you a patient person?  I try to be, but patience does not come naturally to me.  I have a very short attention span, which makes me pretty impatient.  Sometimes I have to take a deep breath and literally tell myself to be patient.

4. What is one of your pet peeves?  Oh, where to start. . .   I hate when people drop their cigarette butts on the ground.  How is that not considered littering??  It looks so awful.  I hate when people talk on their cell phones while they're driving (we can all see you doing it!).  I hate when people have their iPods and other audio devices turned up so loudly that everyone around them can hear their "music."  I hate when people don't bother to empty their pockets and take off their shoes and belts until it's their turn to go through the metal detector at the airport.  That was four, and I'm just getting warmed up.  I could go on and on . . .

5. Brad Pitt: Love him or hate him?  Totally neutral.  But I'm mystified as to why he incites such strong feelings. 

6. Whose blog would you love to take over for a day?  Great question--there are so many fabulous blogs out there.  I think I'd pick Tatertots & Jello.  Jen highlights other people's projects (and some of her own).  I'm consistently amazed at how creative people are (and how much free time they must have).  Such genius!  I would love to spend a day sorting through the projects people send her.

7. What is your dream car?  Some kind of convertible--maybe a BMW or Lexus?  I would put the top down, put on some great music, and just cruise around town.

8. Do you have a Mac or Windows?  I have a Mac at home and a PC with Windows at work, but I am a Mac girl through and through.

Here are my eight questions:

1.  If you could leave for vacation tomorrow, where would you go?
2.  Do you have pets?
3.  What's one thing you love about your neighborhood?
4.  Where do you think of as "home"?
5.  What's your guilty pleasure?
6.  What did you watch on TV last night?
7.  What do you wish you did better?
8.  Sunrise or sunset?

And now to tag eight bloggers.  I've selected a sample of bloggers whose blogs I just love. I've gotten to know some of these folks pretty well through blogging, some I wish I knew better.  I won't be offended if you don't want to play along.  And if I didn't tag you, I'd still love to see your responses!

1.  Cielo Azul Jewelry
2.  HaupLight
3.  Sunshine and Bubblegum
4.  Suburb Sanity
5.  Mommie Life
6.  Busy Working Mama
7.  A Lil' Of This And A Lil' Of That
8.  Preppy Pink Crocodile


  1. This is so fun! Thanks for doing this. I LOVE your answers, esp. your pet peeve one LOL. I agree with you on them. I'm so glad to get to know you too and thank you for your kind words about me and my blog. I feel the same towards yours girl. xoxo

  2. How fun! I will start working on mine:)

  3. Thank you for thinking of me - I'll try to participate in this but I can't make any promises since I've been on skates here lately trying to catch up with all my work around here. I love your answers and I totally agree with your peeves -talking on cell phones while driving and littering with ciggerette butts, ugh! Just for the record - I'm a big fan of your blog! Smiles.

  4. It's good to get to know you better, I'll have to try those chocolate cheerios. Happy to be placed on the same list of those other great bloggers! I'll work on answering your questions right now :)
