Mamarazzi Tagged Me!

But first....you may now "oohhh and ahhhh" over my very first ever Award!!! I got it for participating in her Favorite Things Swap. Not sure if my blog is filled with "bloggy goodness" or not but dang it, I love my award!!!

...and yeah, she tagged me too....must have been a bribe(???) LOL!
1. My favorite movie is Gone With The Wind. I'm crazy about Scarlett O'Hara!! When we finally went on our honeymoon this past June, we stayed in "Scarlett's Retreat" (http://www.ballastone.com/savannah-bed-and-breakfast-9.html )
2. I get really bad headaches. I mean REALLY BAD!! The only thing that works is 3 extra strength excedrin, 1 sudafed, 1 motrin and one square of 70% cocoa dark chocolate. No prescription ever works!
3. Let me have a hot, hot bubble bath and a cold, cold glass of wine and I'll forgive you just about anything!
4. I cannot go to bed at night if the kitchen is dirty. I just can't. Waking up to a dirty kitchen would give me fits.
5. I like to get up before anyone else so I can wake up slowly and quietly. I don't like anyone before my morning coffee or tea....anyone!!
6. I love expensive perfumes. I must have expensive taste because they're the only ones that smell good to me, lol! I use it everyday too.
7. I babytalk to my kitty. She "gets" me when no one else does. She also "talks" back to me - it's a Siamese thing. Or maybe just our thing. But I love her!
Now I'm supposed to tag others but everyone should know by now that I don't have the know how to do that without totally screwing it up. I am working on a list of stuff I'm clueless about and need help with. I think I will post that tomorrow. In the meantime, go ahead and list your 7 tidbits here. And I will KNOW you have been here, reading this. So fair is fair, you read - you post!!! Don't make me hunt you down, k?

oh i love that i was able to bestow your first bloggy award upon you!

and congrats on doing the tag soooo fast!! i tend to take forever getting those done, so i am impressed!

i also cannot go to bed if the kitchen is a mess. actually i typically have to clean as i go when cooking dinner then do dishes before moving on to anything else. so all that is left before bed is unloading the dishwasher and wiping down the counters one more time and replacing the dishtowel with a fresh one for a new day! a clean kitchen makes me VERY happy!!

Lynnette said...

4. I'm a peacemaker...which can wear me out sometimes.

First of all, THANK YOU for not having word verification and 30 other hoops to jump through for me to comment. I appreciate it.

Like Lynette, I am territorial too! Even with my hubby! So sad! Too bad!

Kristina P. said...

I haven't seen Gone with the Wind in forever! Congrats on your award!

And thank you to your dear husband for all of his sacrifices.

P.S. Do you know how to hyperlink so you don't have to insert the link? It's so much easier!

Congrats on your Award, and I see that you won the "pay it forward" prize - Woo Hoo for you!! I enjoy your blog, and it is loaded with bloggy goodness! Seven random things:
1. I too like to be alone with my coffee (at least one cup). I don't like "visiting" during that first cup.
2. I can't have the digital thermostat or the volume on the TV, on an "odd" number. It HAS to be an even number.
3. I always sneeze three times...ALWAYS!
4. I also can't leave a dirty kitchen throughout the night. When I make coffee, I want a clean sink!
5. I always say that I don't have a favorite color, but truth is, it is pink, I just don't admit it!
6. I keep my favorite pictures in the world in my recipe box.
7. I don't like flat cheese.

I just did one of these last week, so you will have to search my blog for it! :)

Congrats on the award! It was well deserved, I am sure.

I, too, cannot stand a dirty kitchen before bed. Nothing puts me in a worse mood than walking into that mess the next morning.

Kat said...

My cat gets me and talks to me as well. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

babyrocasmama said...

Seven random things about me? Well...

1) I will only eat corn on the cob. I will NOT eat creamed corn or canned corn. On the cob only!!

2) DO NOT wake me up before I am ready...ever! You WILL NOT LIKE ME when I am GRUMPY (Hub's nickname for me) & I will not like you, either!

3) My favorite movie is "The Princess Bride". My husband & I lit our unity candle to the theme song at our wedding.

4)I LOVE grits! I will eat them with butter & scoop them up with thick cut bacon.

5)The drinking glasses, cans, etc. in my cabinets must be put in by size,largest in back, all lined up & labels showing forward. It BUGS me if they are not that way & it is harder to find stuff that way , anyway. Also if the glasses aren't put away right & I need a large glass, I always break one trying to get to what I need.

6) The smell of coffee & the sight of bright colors will trigger an excruciating headache.

7) If you are not a guest of mine, don't park in front of my house. It BUUUUGGGGSSSS the crap out of me! I feel like my space/territory is being invaded.

There you go...now you know I'm nuckinfuts, thanks!! LOL

TMI said...

I checked out Scarlett O'Hara's place - too cool! I love GWTW too - Hello, my name is Tara!!! Love all the other random facts too. I should pass on your 'prescription' for bad headaches to a few people in my life. Hey, if it works for you....

Fifi Flowers said...

Waiting on a piece of glass and then I will ship your painting and notecards! YEA!
