I loves me some tags

I've been tagged by Tra-Diddy (what...that's a perfectly good nickname...) so here we go:

What were you doing 10 years ago? - I was 18, living with my Dad, celebrating my one-year anniversary with my boyfriend at the time. I think that's one of the semesters that I was taking Jazz dance at Fullerton JC. It wasn't a very memorable January I guess. LOL!

What were you doing 1 year ago? Floating on cloud 9 because we'd just found out we were pregnant again!

Five snacks you enjoy: Popcorn, Wasabi Funyuns, chocolate chip cookies, raw zucchini slices, a glass of merlot (I know that's not a real snack but sometimes that's the perfect evening treat).

Five songs to which you know all the lyrics: "Mr. Wendel" by Arrested Development; "You Were Meant For Me" by Jewel, "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid, "Answer" by Sarah McLachlan, "My Humps" by Black Eyed Peas

Five bad habits: Over-analyzing what others think, over-criticizing what others do, wasting time on the internet by "just checking" this or that one more time, not answering emails (Robin M., yours is the VERY next email I'm gonna reply to! I swear!), downloading my scrapping products and not sorting them instantly.

Five things you like doing: Scrapping in bed; tickling Kyla until I get a big belly laugh from her; listening at the door to McKenna "read" one of the books she's memorized; having lengthy, intelligent conversations with my husband (that's the only Erick-involved activity I'm willing to share *wink*); going shopping and then to see a chick-flick with my Mom and sister.

Five things you would never wear, buy or get again: Jeans that are made to look dirty (why do I want to look like I don't wash my pants?); Target's tealights (those things don't last at all!); a book by Steve Martin; frozen fish; and I'll steal Traci's answer and say granny p.a.n.t.i.e.s.

Five favorite toys: My laptop, my ipod, my Rebel, my books, and my paypal card when there's money on it!

Five people I want tagged:
Julie, Miranda, Jennifer, Laura

And finally, to update you on the new tarts....

Herbs & Blooms was just ok. It smelled good but I got sick of it after awhile. It was funny though because it's supposed to smell like a real garden. And I had all my windows open and I thought "It smells like real topsoil!!" which would not really be desirable in a tart. But then I realized my next door neighbor actually WAS working in her garden and I was getting a whiff of that.

Country Linen I LOVED. I'll definitely buy that one again. A light, clean scent.


Jennifer said...

Yay! A tag. :)

Funyuns? Really? Am I totally missing out?

I love those layouts. I had already seen the first one but I'm so glad I caught the second. I'm going to need to use that quote too one of these days!

Victoria Lewis said...

Those layouts are so beautiful! You're so clever, I can't imagine creating something like that!

I am so curious about the tarts - only boring old vanilla scents in my house in New Zealand!

Elaine said...

You knock those LO's out of the park EVERYTIME! I'm not even going to start scrapping, I'll just pay you to do them for me! How's that sound? LOL!

Okay you keep mentioning wasabi funyuns and I'm just going to have to go get some!

OH and I KNOW you tagged me for the foursome tag, I even answered all the questions.. have I posted it yet?? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I want to save it for my uninspired days. - Okay, really, I just forgot...:D

GretGrrl said...

Those eyes! What a great layout. And I just love the swing picture - neat photo technique.

Julie Jewels said...

Oh no! I've never been tagged before! The pressure! AAAHH! LOL

LOVE your pages!

Too funny about the tart smelling like topsoil!!

Britt(any) said...

Okay, I'm officially letting you know that I am no longer a lurker. I've lurked and lurked, and now I'm bookmarking you! You're too funny! Love the LOs, and I'm jealous of the blog's just one of those titles that makes me wish I had a creative brain...or that I had thought of it first. (Well, Cinderella is also my favorite fairy tale/Disney movie.)


Alyson said...

OMG, That layout with Kenna and the swing. WOW. Honestly, can I borrow your creativity for JUST a second? Thanks. Beautiful!

And tarts. I'm DESPERATELY trying to tell Mike how I need a tart warmer and need to begin my obsession with tarts. He's not buying it. Can you think of a great "starter" tart to hook him with?

terrarist said...

Not to be too overanalytical - but you only tagged four people and it says five - who is the fifth mystery taggee????

LOVE those layouts - loved your tag answers - love getting a glimpse into that weirdly amazing great talented sweet brain of yours!That was horrible grammar - I apologize! So jealous you all can just hop in the car and zip on up to the Land of Disney. But what great family memories you will have someday to look back on!
have a rockin day! T
