Tag, I'm it

Yay, I was tagged in the Seven Things post that is going around. Thanks Shannon, I feel honored!

It's like getting one of those chain e-mails where you have to answer random questions about yourself and then forward to all your friends...and then no one ever responds. Except this time, it's more public and you are pretty much obligated to do it. So, warning for those whom I will tag, I am going to (nicely) harass you (every day) until you post...

Ok, so here are 7 things you may or may not know about me.

1. I'm a newlywed. The only way you might have missed this is if today is your first time reading the blog...because, seriously...I'm obsessed with my husband.
But how could I not be? This guy is HOT.

2. I'm the oldest of 3 siblings. Does that make me independently-minded? Sometimes. Most of the time it just means that I had to put up with annoying younger brothers...but they grew up to be pretty cool. This one is the funny one.
I'm also 5'9" but still the shortest in the family.

3. I used to weigh 70 more pounds than I do today. Ok, maybe it's closer to 65 lately, but that's still a lot. I grew up overweight and finally got rid of it as adult. I'm proud of that. But I also know that I love food and I will always struggle with this problem...and knowing is half the battle, right?

I'm second from the left in this pic.

4. I make stuff. I wasn't crafty until last year. I don't know what happened. Ok, yes I do. I wanted to make myself a bag. And then some girls at work wanted a bag. And then I made some baby stuff for my friend's baby shower a month later and it just took off from there. Check out my Etsy site...please note that I am not the best at taking pictures of my stuff! My current project is a Rollie Pollie chair for my nephew...and some other Christmas surprises that I will share later.

5. I've "met" a celebrity...with the same name as me. That's right, people, I met Lindsay Lohan. And by "meet" I mean I was in a crowd of people surrounding her outside of David Letterman's studio. Yes, awkwardly enough, I did yell out, "We have the same name!!!", even though she was literally 15 inches away from me. Also, she's short. Also, we only have the same first name.

6. I (used to) speak French. I needed to study abroad for 10 weeks to complete my diploma requirements for my major, so of course I chose to live in Paris one summer. I had a blast and met several friends, some of whom I still keep in touch with 7 years later. I'm hoping that my hubby and I can afford a trip to Europe next fall and see Paris again while we're there.

7. I'm a (not so) secret dork. I was a band nerd in high school, I love Harry Potter, LOTR, and Star Wars. And between my engineer husband and I, I am definitely the dorkier of the two of us. But at least he likes some sci-fi stuff with me.

And I now tag the following people to participate:
(if you've already done it, don't feel obligated to do it again, k?)

Lisa from Archives

Sands from Sealverland

Linda from The Auspicious Life

I have about a week's worth of outfits to blog about, so y'all go on and write up cool stuff about yourselves while I work on those posts.

For the rest of you, if I didn't tag you, just tag yourself! Or leave a comment with an interesting factoid about yourself. Ready, go!!


  1. Oh yay! I love your 7 secrets! Especially the fact that you met LiLo. :) And what a tall (& lovely) family you have!

    Thanks for tagging me...here is my list: http://andhudsonmakesthree.blogspot.com/2010/11/seventeen-seven-secrets.html

  2. how funny that you are a Lindsay Lohan! Must get you strange looks :)

  3. Oh, thanks for the tag! :) I will be posting about it this weekend! :)

    Haha, I can't believe you're 5'9 and smallest of the family... I'm 5'3 and NOT the smallest of the family! Ha! :P


  4. Clarification: I am not also a Lindsay Lohan...but I'm also a Lindsay, spelled the same way. So...yeah...maybe I should edit my post...?

  5. lol, I was amazed that there was another LiLo - I am sorta relieved for you that you don't share her EXACT name!

  6. How fun to learn more about you!

    I was tagged a few months ago and most of the stuff is still true...well, except for number 8, because I finally finished the darn thing. ;)
