I've been tagged!

So, Julie, the sweet dear, tagged me. What this means is that I'm supposed to write 7 interesting/weird facts about myself. While I would love to be able to add all the fancy smancy things that she and others do to their blogs, I've not figured out how to do all of that yet...I can figure out how to get my groceries for free, but not how to fancy blog. Go figure.

So, here goes:

1. I like to work out. I love the sense of accomplishment I get from a good burn and while I don't always see the results I want (have to figure out how to curb the eating part) I don't give up....and I like that about myself.

2. I was eating in the cafe at Fred Meyers when I was about 10 years old (my mother got my friend and I soft drinks, but we brought our own PB&J), when an armed robber entered the store and started shooting! A man ran past us with several bullet wounds and eventually died. The suspect was apprehended and I believe is still in jail to this day. We were obviously spared.

3. (already I'm realizing I'm not very interesting or weird for that matter) I am great at getting insurance companies to over-turn denials.

4. I really enjoy playing drums on Rock Band PS3.

5. I promised my sister that I would wait until I graduated high school before I got married. At the time I thought it a ridculous request since I didn't plan on marriage until after I went to college and became an orthodontist. When I became engaged at 16 I realized it was going to be harder than I thought. Fortunately, Jon and I worked together and we were married in the Portland Temple 1 month after graduation. I kept my promise.

6. My two favorite Prophets have been Ezra Taft Benson and Gordon B. Hinkley.

7. I used to be able to, but now cannot for obvious reasons, put both of my feet behind my head and then walk around on my bum. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone over 18, it's just not right.

So there you have it. Now I tag, Vickie, Teri, Tonya, Jenny Allen, Danica, Heather, and Tami.

Someday I'll figure out how to work this so it's easier for all of you. :)

Darn! I might have paid money to see you do that last one.

Interesting little facts. Thanks for going along with it.

Hey, I saved $100+ on my groceries this past week. Yeehaw! Would still love to sit down with you for more mentoring. Got time for me?

You're amazing! So glad to be getting to know you! Glad you survived the Fred Meyer incident.

Oh, by the way, I'd be happy to sit down and help you with some of the cutsie stuff if you're interested.

I use to be able to also walk around with one leg behind my head.

So let me know when are coming to the Keizer area, or maybe we could come visit you guys sometime so you can tell me about the grocery thing.

I can also help with blog stuff.

I LOVED getting to know you through this fun post and I am so excited to be tagged to do it next! Woah! about the whole Fred Meyer incident. That is freaky. I'm glad you're still here. I can't quite imagine the running around your bum or whatever that one was. You might have to demonstrate:0) I'll be posting my tag soon.
