Tagged Again....

I was tagged by a good friend and now I guess it is my turn to tell 6 facts about myself. I will try to make this as interesting as possible. Sorry it took me so long Ronni, I just couldn't think of 6 interesting facts about myself. So here it goes:

1. Someday when I grow up I think it would be fun to be a real estate agent. Ever since I bought my first home I have had a passion at looking at homes. I told Eric I think that it is something I would love doing once my kids get older. I would love to specialize in finding first time home buyers a decent home at an a price that they could afford. I love the hunt of finding houses. Even if it is not for me.

2. Eric and I have a stash of halloween candy under our bed. It is so fun to lay in bed, watch TV and have chocolate. It makes us feel like little kids. Like we are being sneaky or something.

3. I have developed a new found love for running. Which is weird because as a kid I dreaded when we had to run the mile.

4. I love finding things on sale. I have a unique way of making a dollar stretch . My nick name in Highschool was Tight -wad, and Eric calls me his (CFN) Chief financial Nazzi. I think that even if I was rich I would still be cheap. I just really enjoy it. Sometimes I worry about being rich and life not being as fun. I know I am not normal.

5. I love to go places with my family. As a kid I would have picked a vacation to Ashton, ID over DisneyLand anyday because of all the fun and memories I had. I hope to have similar family memories with my children as they grow up.

6. I hate suprises. Poor Eric, he always tries to suprise me but it usually never works. I usually know what I am getting for Christmas before Christmas morning. I always have to find out if my baby is going to be a boy/girl, ect. Suprises give me anxiety.

You are so weird. How can you hate surprises?!? I LOVE them. (Well, unless it's finding a surprise mess that my kids left or something like that, but you know what I mean). But I will still always find out what gender my kids will be.

1. I want to be a real estate agent, too. I don't even care if I sell any houses...I just want to be able to poke through people's houses. but if you open a real estate office and you promise not to kick me off your team for lack of sales, I'd love to be a part of your non-sales-team! ;)

great tag. I love the halloween candy idea, I think I'll have to steal that for our house when Truman gets old enough to trick or treat.

p.s. you have my name spelled wrong on your link list. :)

I can vouch for #4. You definitely can make a dollar stretch. I think Mark wishes I were more like you. I should take some lessons from you, in fact. Unfortunately for Mark, I'm more "the generous to a fault" kind of person with his money.
