An Alphabet Tag

Tracy from the Vintage Sister Studio tagged me and this is sort of a fun one I haven't done before so I gave it a try!
A -Attached or single: Attached
B- Best Friend: Probably my sister and hubby for different reasons, I've had them the longest but I would have to add my Utah girls that I have grown up with as a collective group too.
C- Cautious or Crazy: mostly cautious unless it is craft related, then I am willing to try most anything.
D-Day: It would be a three way tie between nap time on Mondays when a I can work on projects, Saturdays when we tend to do fun stuff as a family and a day out with hubby
E- Essential Item: The last year especially it would have to be my computer. I will shrivel up and die if it ever bites the big one.
F- Favorite Color: Pink! Pink! Pink! Love to wear it, paint it, craft it, but it shows up virtually nowhere in my house
G-Gummi Bears or Worms: Probably bears, feels like I get to have more
H-Home town: I still consider the little town I grew up in in Utah my hometown. I don't know how long I will have to live somewhere else for it to be considered my hometown.
I- Indulgences: Definitely chocolate. Preferably good stuff like Dove but I will eat any chocolate item if the craving is bad enough
J- January or July:July, I love the fourth and all the fun summer activities with my kids.
K-Kids:3-Brittany will be 9 in three weeks, Matthew 5 and Joshua who will be two in 2 1/2 weeks(can't believe that!)
L-Life is incomplete without: my little family, I sometimes can't remember what I was like without them!
M- Marriage Date: April 28, 1993
N- Number of Siblings: 1 sister
O- Oranges or Apples: Apples especially if I have some of that yummy caramel dip, um I think I need to go get some of that stuff!
.P- Phobias or Fears: Public speaking! I would rather shave my head than speak in public.
Q- Quote: changes all the time. Today it is: That it will never come again is what makes life sweet. Emily Dickinson
R- Reason To Smile: Of course my family, but little pretty things all around. My funny little projects, something a pretty color, a new flower and blogging!
S- Season: Definitely Spring which is good, it lasts a long time here and I love that. With the exception of one weird week we have had spring since about March and today it still feels like we are still having it. I do expect it to change soon though.
T- Tag Three:Only if they want to do it, I would pick on my childhood friends:1. The Motherboard 2. Circe and 3. Tiff
U- Unknown fact about me: I once saw Princess Diana going in to see a play in London when I was visiting there with my family when I was 14. I remember thinking she was so lovely and thinner than I thought she would be.
V- Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals: I don' t actually enjoy meat all that much. I do eat it and if someone besides me prepared chances are I am going to enjoy it. Lots of veggies coming soon though, I love them from the garden.
W- Worst Habit:Procrastinating. Applies to housework or any other task I don't enjoy.
Y-Your favorite food: Things that are bad for me generally. Pizza, Chinese food, chocolate and loads of bread
Z: Zodiac Sign: Scorpio
Well that was sort of fun for me, hopefully not too boring for you guys!

You saw Princess Diana! and you never told me that!!!! Hello!?!?! :)

The Motherboard said...

Hey! That was fun! I was imagining you with a shaved head, and laughed right out loud!! Too fun! I will most definitely play.

sws said...

You probably noticed that Di was anorexic before the rest of the world knew. I agree with Tiff, this is something we should have known! What was she wearing??!!

michelle said...

See, this is my one claim to fame!The Diana sighting! We were waiting in line to go in and see the mousetrap and suddenly a swarm of police came in with barricades. Then a limo and then there was Di. She was wearing a turquoise dress and had a small purse. She waved for a minute and then was gone. I took a picture but I had one of those terribel long camreas 112 film I think? si it didn't turn out well. That is my whole story!

One of my worst habits is procrastinating which means I'll probably never get around to making this list for myself but I enjoyed reading yours!! I see everyone here is commenting on Di. When I was ten I remember staying up for the royal wedding and from then until I was 14 I collected everything on her. I wanted to be like her but looking back seems like she had a rather troubled life. And it's too bad she got to thin as I think she was prettiest/healthiest around the time she got married. ! I had always wished I could've seen her and Jackie Kennedy in person . That is so cool you got to see her!

What a lovely way to get to know someone better. Very envious that you saw Princess Di, I loved her to bits.

Tammy said...

Fun! I feel like I know you a little better. Have a lovely day!

Circe said...

Oh, Michelle, my attention span is nowhere long enough to answer all those questions. Will you still share your potato chips with me if I don't play?! When you saw Princess Di, it must have been right around the same time you saw me in that china shop. Which was more thrilling? :)

vivian said...

I'm glad you gad fun with this tag...I know some are a real chore but I had fun doing it too. Love all of the info, especially the public speaking. Someone asked my 8year old if he wanted to say something at his grandpa's funeral and his face was priceless. I leaned over and told him that I would rather jump in the hole in the ground with garndpa then talk in front of a bunch of people! Maybe that should have been my phobia/fear too.
Thanks for sharing!
