I've been tagged...

Ashley over at HelpMeetInTraining has tagged me.

Here are my instructions:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 (ok, I am only doing 6 and out of those I don't want you to feel pressured or annoyed, ok?!) people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Kristen facts:

1. I attended 7 different colleges before finally getting my degree. I was a junior at the college that I thought I would graduate from when I met and married my wonderful husband. When he asked, my Dad said, "Yes, as long as you promise she will finish her degree." I did, but I have a feeling my father didn't think I would because that promise took MANY years to fulfill as we traveled around the country. I did it Dad!

2. Peter was in the Navy when we married. We moved 11 times in the 12 years that he was active duty. Some of those moves were within the same city. I have many different size curtains.

3. Some thought we were crazy when we moved 6 houses down the street from my parents upon Peter's entrance into civilian life. We didn't think we were as we have a great relationship with them! I feel so sad for people who don't have good relationships with their parents and in-laws...

4. In the winter I love my crockpot.

5. I take mommy minutes. They are not what you think! I hide in the pantry and eat chocolate chips right out of the bag. I don't know how many, 20, 40 maybe, and then I am reset and ready to take on the rest of my day. Shhh, don't tell.

6. My favorite color growing up was purple and people still think it is, so they buy me purple stuff!

7. When I don't have the kids with me at the grocery store I buy myself something at the impulse aisle--something chocolate and really yummy--and then I leave the wrapper tucked into the steering wheel so that Peter will have a good laugh. He always does! Shhh, don't tell the kids!

I too found your site through 50 Toes and invite you to check us out @ MHSRotties. We are a homeschooling family on our way to filling our quiver with adopted children. I look forward to reading more about you. BTW: I love your mommy minutes and think that should become a great addition to my schedule!
