Random Facts Meme

I was tagged twice this last week for memes. Aw, thanks ladies for including me in the fun! This one is shorter and is just 6 random things about me, so I will do this one first.

Thanks to Susan at the lil' mommy that could for thinking of me! I met her on Mom Bloggers Club and have enjoyed her blog so much lately!


So, this meme is easy - Tell 6 random facts about yourself and then tag 6 others to do the same.

Here goes...

1. I get obsessed with activities and then get bored with them. Like an exercise class or scrapbooking. I am hoping this doesn't happen with Blogging!




2. I stay up way too late. It is really starting to catch up with me, though. It takes me about 4 cups of coffee to get going in the morning now and that is not good for me! I want to get to bed earlier. I plan for it and then I end up staying up late anyway. I have always been a night owl.



3. I sold real estate in Dallas, Texas for 6 years. It was a fun job, but a tremendous amount of work. And driving! Oh my, did I drive. People could not believe that I was only in my mid-twenties and selling real estate. One time a couple asked for someone older because they thought I wouldn't know what I was talking about. But I did. I worked hard and asked for a lot of advice from experienced agents.



4. I really love to garden. I am learning every year what works and what doesn't. It is a great stress reliever and I feel a real sense of accomplishment from it when I see what I have planted grow into something beautiful.



5. I won my husband over with this Shakespeare quote, "Nothing is good nor bad, thinking makes it so." He thought I was really smart. He was hooked before he found out any different.



6. I loved having my babies sleep with me and I really enjoyed breastfeeding them. I actually kind of mourned when I had to move them into their own beds and weaned them. If you would have asked me 20 years ago if I would have co-slept and breastfed, I would have laughed. I climb into their beds a lot at night after they are asleep, just to snuggle them for awhile.



Okay, that is six random facts you never wanted to know about me and now my my six tags:

Just Another Day in Paradise

Musings of a Mom of 4

For Such a Thyme


And you! Play along and let me know if you do, so I can learn more about you!
