I've been tagged. Val from Purple Valley tagged me and meme's are let the fun begin.

Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

1.) Chris and I are 6 years apart in age, just as my grandpa and grandma. We also were married on Memorial Day weekend (on Sunday), just as my grandpa and grandma (but not on Sunday). And this year, the second of the 9 grandkids to get married will also be getting married on Memorial Day weekend. Family traditions...although not on purpose.

2.) Both of our children were conceived in rentals. Libby was conceived at the nasty Warsaw apartment and this one was obvioulsy conceived in this rental house here in Dubuque.

3.) When I was little and my teeth were just growing, for the first time, I tripped and fell into the bath tub and shoved the front two back up in my gums. When they grew again, I tripped and fell into the coffee table and shoved them back up in my gums again. Then in the fourth grade I had a gym accident which just broke them completely. Now, my two front teeth are fake.

4.) I went to the same church (Hillcrest Baptist) for the first 18 years of my life before changing churches. That's a long story I won't get into though. Since then I have attended 6 different churches.

5.) In high school I told my sister that my car radio was broken and would take the chip out that controlled the radio when she was in there so she couldn't listen to it. Let's just say I was the "goody two shoes" and thought I could control her...not so!

6.) Libby was due March 13 and was born on March 27 to become an Easter baby. This baby is due December 12 and if it is as late as Libby (one day shy) it will be a Christmas baby.

7.) I was a goalie on our girl's soccer team for two years in high school. I quit my junior year because I was afraid this freshman was going to take over my posistion. Who knows if she would have or not...I shouldn't have quit out of fear though.

I am tagging:
Alexis from Ramblings from Life
Wendy from An Iowa Mom
Angie from Keeping of Time
Brandie from Skipping Along
Deanna from The Greene Family Album
Erin at Christian, Camden & Carter's Mommy
Traci at Elmo Loves

Have fun!

Very fun.... check out my blog! :)

it's me, Val said...

Hey Liza! Very fun :) Your meme was great!! My sil had her baby Dec 23. Some people think having a baby so close to Christmas isn't too fun, but I think it would be awesome. Thanks for doing the meme!

You bet! It was fun! I figure that as long as I still make a big deal out of the birthday it will be fine. I think we will celebrate Christmas at lunch and the birthday at dinner...or vice versa.
