Tag- I'm it.

I was tagged by my lovely friend Stephanie over at Blawndes Blawg.
 Her questions for me:
  1. What is your favorite thing about blogging? Hmmmm there are so many things.  I can't pick just one, so I'll say the support, advice and friendships.
  2. What is one thing that makes you unique? No idea, I'm probably not that unique.
  3. Have you lost someone close to you? Yes, I lost my mom a few years ago and my grandmother last year.
  4. Were you named after anyone? Not that I know of.
  5. Tell us about an embarrassing moment. Who doesn't have an embarrassing moment about their period, right?  Well, I was new to the menstruation game and I spent my summers in a corn field detassling.  There weren't any toilets waiting at the end of the rows for us and by lunch time (when we got to use porta potties) I had bled all over my shorts and I am pretty positive everyone on the detassling crew had noticed.  I sat in the porta potty and cried and wondered what the hell I was going to do for the rest of the day.  Thankfully, I had a flannel shirt with me and wore it buttoned up and tied around my waist like a skirt for the rest of the day.  So embarrassing.
  6. What did you want to be when you grew up, and did you accomplish it? I always wanted to be a librarian, not accomplished but I still think that would be the best job ever.
  7. Why did you start your blog? To keep my family and friends updated on our IVF and to vent. I had no idea there was a whole community out here and I am so glad I found you guys!
  8. What chore do you absolutely hate doing? Cleaning the shower.
  9. What celebrity do you think you look like? I don't think I look like anyone but I've heard many things over the years.  Jenna Elfman, Princess Diana, and Faith Hill.
  10. What songs are included on the soundtrack of your life? This is a hard one! I'm not sure exactly the best way to answer this. Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Pink Floyd- Wish You Were Here, make me think of my mom.  Honorary Title- Far More, Norah Jones- Come Away With Me or any Jack Johnson song remind me of Steve.  Adele- Make You Feel My Love is my song for Emily and any Beatles, Rolling Stones, or classic rock remind me of my dad.  Music is a big part of my life so I have so many songs that have strong connections for me.
  11. What story does your family always tell about you? My mom and dad always talk/ed about what a bad baby I was, crying all the time.  They don't have many pictures of me as a baby that aren't red faced with tears.

I think most of you have already been tagged -but if not, consider yourself tagged by me and play along!

  3. Great answers, thanks for playing along! Somewhere Over the Rainbow totally reminds me of my mom too, we played it at her funeral. I can't help but tear up every time I hear it.

  5. Wow that is embarrassing! Esp when you are young!

    I also hate cleaning the shower. Reading that gave me a knee jerk "but IDK wanna!" reaction!

  6. Confession: I clean the shower naked right before I take a shower. I literally get in there as if I was taking a shower and start scrubbing the hell out of it. The Hubbs mentioned it once to me and I thought that was a great idea. Then I just take a shower and get all clean myself. Maybe this was too much information, I guess my filter is off.
