8 Random Facts Meme

Ok, this time around I have been tagged by Janice to do the 8 Random Facts Meme.

Here are the rules:- I have to post these rules before I give you the facts (check)

- Each participant posts eight random facts about themselves.
- Tagees should write a blogpost of eight random facts about themselves.
- At the end of the post, eight more bloggers are tagged (named and shamed).
- Go to their blog, leave a comment telling them they're tagged (cut and run).

So, here's my attempt. Although, I'm not sure I know 8 bloggers to tag. I'll have to look.

1. I have lived in more houses than I can count. If I go back 15 years (the amount of time I've been married) I've lived in 15 houses. I couldn't even count my entire life, because as a child, we moved every couple of years also.

2. I went to France during the summer after my junior year and wandered around Paris by myself taking pictures, reading, eating croissants, writing and watching people. I went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, and it was a windy day, and it was swaying back and forth at the top!

3. My first job was at the Peanut Shack in Plano, Texas. My pay was $3.35 an hour. I baked cookies and popped popcorn. I was told I could take home all the extra popcorn at the end of my shift, so sometimes I would pop some at 8:30, and take the extra in a huge bag to my boyfriends house.

4. I believe that taking a nap on Sunday afternoon after church is not only nice, it's my God given right as a hard working mother of three.

5. I have watched the series Alias all the way through, consecutively at least 6 times. I lost count. I think it's about 6 times. I secretly believe in another life, I could have been as bad a** as Sydney Bristow.

6. I still rock out to Def Leppard and Night Ranger.

7. I have a tattoo around my right ankle that I got when I was 30 I think. It's little swirlies, and flowers. I got it with my best friend in the world, Samantha. We've been friends since 6th grade. She got the same one, only different color flowers. We're tattoo sistas! Most people get a good laugh when they find out I have tattoo, because they envision me as being uptight and conservative. Muhahahaha! I have many layers!

8. I met D at a party my roommates threw in college on January 20, 1990, and I have loved him every day since. (The reason I met him goes back to a mouse...but that's a long story)

Here's my tags...

1. Wendy
2. Stacy
3. Susie
4. Debs (friend of Susie's/new blogger)
5. Shana (because Janice said you're safe...but no one is ever safe!)
6. Megan (because even when you go private, you can get still get tagged!)
7. Lori (because I haven't heard from you in a while)
8. D (because I'm all out of people, but he won't be able to tag anybody, because he doesn't know any bloggers)

OH, and I don't usually do two posts in a day, but because I was tagged, I did. Don't forget to scroll down and see my handsome boy playing the guitar!
