Tag.. I'm it!

So yesterday was a big day of firsts for me.  The biggest most important one was that my daughter had her first day of 3rd grade and my middle guy had his first day of kindergarten!

The next first was that I actually won a giveaway!  Yes.. my first in all of my 31 years!  Soo exciting.

I won 100 digital postcards from inktree press at This crazy life  I am hoping that these come in handy for my upcoming craft shows!
The last first is that I got tagged in a post by Kati at the Multipurpose life!
  So now I have to answer 8 questions!  Here goes:

1. What is one thing you just can not stand?
I cannot STAND when I lose things.. however, it seems to happen more and more often!

2. If you could go back to your childhood, what cartoon or t.v. show would you pick to be your all-time favorite?
I hate to admit it .. but one of my all time favorite shows was Beverly Hills 90210.  I remember that since I grew up in an age before TIVO I would walk to my friend Korin's house and watch the new episodes with big bowls of popcorn! 

3. What's something you do or have done that would surprise a lot of people?
I am pretty predictable.. so there is not much that I have done or do that is surprising.  If I had to chose something though, I would say that it would surprise people that I ran a half marathon in under 2 hours after only ever having run in 5K's.

4. do you believe in ghosts?
I DO believe in ghosts.. but don't tell my kids ok?  They don't know and I don't want to freak them out!

5. when you go into a store whats your weakness, something you just can't help yourself from buying more of?
If I am in a department store, I just cannot resist a new pair of shoes!  If I am in the craft store.. it is hard to control myself at all.. but I love to buy wood products that can be painted and decoupaged!

6. what is the funniest story you have on your significant other?
When my husband and I went on our honeymoon my parents got us a rental car to drive.  After we picked it up and drove it for about an hour we decided that it was NOT a safe car to drive.  We checked with the dealer and were told that we could bring it back and exchange it for another vehicle, however, we had to be there in 1/2 hour as they were closing.  We drove around for about 25 minutes looking for the place and finally my husband decided to stop at a convenience store for directions.  While he was in the store a car that was similar in color and make to the car we were driving parked next to us.  I watched as my husband walked out of the store, opened the other car door, sat down in the driver seat, turned on the ignition and looked into the passenger seat only to meet .... a complete stranger!  I was in the car next to him crying because I was laughing so hard.  My poor husband looked mortified and the two women who were in the car with him were laughing soo hard they couldn't speak!  It was priceless!

7. what is your proudest moment of being a parent? {animals do count ;)}
I have lots of proud mommy moments.. it is sooo hard to chose just one.  I think my proudest moments for my daughter is her thoughtful moments when she makes a card, or present for someone who needs a little cheering up.  My proudest moment of my middle guy is when he tells people that he cannot eat something because his mommy says that he shouldn't.  My proudest mommy moment of my littlest guy was when he was in the hospital after his dog bite and never cried or complained about anything.  Truly amazing!

8. if you could go back and relive one day of your life, which day would you choose?
I would relive all of my deliveries.. I would love to have that moment in time to cherish forever.. as it went by sooo fast!

  2. Hi AmieAnn,
    That was so funny about your husband, I'll bet you still laugh to this day when you remember the story.

    I've never been tagged before so this is pretty cool. Since I can't post until Sunday (maybe), I'll add your button to my sidebar.

    Hope you have a wonderful day!
