6 Things About Me

 My two lovely Designer's friends over at DesignTies Kelly and Victoria,
 have tagged me for the 6 things about me!  Please check out their fabulous Blog! They have just been nominated by Patricia Gray Patricia Gray Interior Design as one of her 10 ten picks!  What an honor girls!!!

1. one is the loneliest number,  as a child we moved a lot,  I attended 7 different elementary and middle schools.  The upside is, I was a shy child forced into being out going or going friendless.

2. My favorite candy is the 2 little peanut butter cups in that orange package! 

3. I have 2 younger sisters, and they both have beautiful blue eyes. Yep, mine our brown!  Just like my mothers. All my cousins on both sides of the family are blue eyed too.

4. I've always want to go to Maui, last year we finally made it. I loved it, and guess what I'm a snorkeler!  who knew!  I really didn't want to leave. I told my husband I was going to have a mid life crisis and go back and stay for a year!  Hasn't happened yet!  I can dream, can't I?

5. We have had 5 generations of women in my family TWICE. My great grandmother lived to be 102, I think she was in her 90's when my 1st daughter was born.  And then a second time when my daughter's daughter was born,  and my grandmother was still alive making 5 generations again!

6. I'm addicted to blogging! Yep, and it's  something i usually don't talk about.  Although my sister christa lynn Cow Girls Don't Kry just started her own blog, and guess what she's addicted too!  blogging has open me up to people from all over the world, so the once shy girl now has international friends!  who would have thunk it!

Now for the next half of 6 Things about me, you in turn must nominate 6 others, let them know they have been tagged and then list them on your blog.

I decided to select a few old friends and a few new friends!
I hope you all enjoy learning a little more about me, as I'm looking forward to hear more about you too.

xoxo, Cathleen

Great list, Cathleen :-) And thanks so much for the shout-out!! It's been an exciting day for us at DesignTies!! :-)

I'm the opposite of you -- I'm the only one with blue eyes in my family. When I was a kid, I was sure that meant I was adopted. But my mom told me that if I HAD been adopted, they would have given me back!! She was kidding... I think!! :-)

I think snorkeling would be a super-cool thing to do -- I hope I'll get a chance to try it one day :-)

Thanks again!!

Hi Cathleen! I loved reading about you! Been to Maui and it is truly a beautiful place!!

Thanks for playing along, Cathleen... I really enjoyed reading your 6 things!!

I think I mentioned that my life has been filled with moving from home to home, so I can soooo relate to the need to be outgoing to meet new friends. I can remember my Mom telling me to go and sit in the front yard so that the neighbourhood friends would see me and invite me to play. I still cringe thinking about it!!

And I love peanut butter cups, too! I'm an anti-sugar chickie these days, though... but I found this scrumptious sugar-free version at a local chocolate shop. It was so good! Forget Maui and come visit me here in Vancouver, beautiful British Columbia, and I'll take you to that chocolate shop! :-) I know... not quite the same!

Thanks so much for tagging me but I was tagged before you :) Here's mine

Love your blog! I'm totally addicted to blogging too and one thing I've learned. You can ONLY talk about blogging with other bloggers. My other friends roll their eyes and say things like "I don't know where you girls find the time".

Tanya said...

What a great challenge. I loved reading more about you! How neat that you got the brown eyes. I have blue and always wanted brown!

Maui...I would love to visit someday....

I love blogging and reading others as well. It's a whole new "world" isn't it? So much fun and I get to meet great new people such as yourself! :) Have a great day and thanks for tagging me!

Thanks for the tag! I'll start working on my 6 things!!

Hi Cathleen! Sorry I haven't gotten back to you earlier. I've been on Auto Post - so just now checking in on emails. I am so sorry, but I have not sent out your level hanger yet, but I will do that this week. Things have just been crazy around my house ... I'll let you know as soon as I get it out! :)
