Eight Things

Theflyingmum tagged me for the 8 Things Meme forever ago. I lifted the rules from her, and she got them from Beck. And so it goes.

A. Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.

B. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.

C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
  1. I am left handed.
  2. I have been asked to be a product reviewer for Go Dairy Free by the wonderful Alisa. Unfortunately, no one in my family cares for the first product I am reviewing. I promised myself that I would not put up a new post until I finished the review and published it. Ahem.
  3. I am very, very good at rationalizing and procrastinating.
  4. The air conditioner in our new-to-us minivan quit halfway across Ohio on our trip to Kentucky. We drove for four hours in 90-plus-degree weather with no A/C and the windows rolled down. Scott and I were miserable, but the kids thought it was fun. They rode along with their arms up over their heads like they were on a roller coaster. They are a happy people.
  5. Our souvenir from Kentucky is a new $800 compressor for our van's A/C.
  6. Yesterday, my OB told me I should be finished with morning sickness by now. I am not.
  7. Scott and I always have an easy time selecting girl names and a difficult time with boy names. Why is that?
  8. This is what I look like, about seven weeks pregnant, throwing my sister a bridal shower with my friends and neighbors Heather and Renee. Heather is in the blue shirt, and Renee is taking the photo.

I will tag Alisa, for when she starts a personal blog, and whoever else might be reading this who hasn't already done this meme. Although I am probably the end of the chain.


  1. Oh dear, I fear that I too must now post a picture of myself!
    Thanks for doing this, it sounds like your calendar is really full - please don't ever feel obligated, I can take it if you choose to pass!

  2. YAY! Welcome back! I am making your peanut butter 4-ingredient cookies for a bake off here at work on Thursday. (I won last year with peanut butter rice krispy balls dipped in chocolate)

    I love the picture--for some reason I pictured you a brunette. Wonder why?

  3. It's because boy names are REALLY DIFFICULT! Either they're too common or they're too out-there. After our first boy, Paul and I were TOTALLY OUT of boy names. Girl names, though, we both like a TON of them, and we agree on a ton of them.

  4. Swistle just did a post asking which is harder to pick, boys' names or girls' names. The comments are hilarious (57 and counting last I checked).


  5. Oops, obviously you know about her post already! (Remind me to read the previous comments!)

  6. Oh my! I better get on that blog. I picked up a wordpress blog, but haven't actually put a post up yet...more soon... What was that product anyway? I don't remember. Honesty is best!

  7. TFM - Ooh, a picture! And I love being tagged; memes are fun.

    Good luck, Sara!

    Alisa, I can't wait till you have your own blog. Whispered: *Purefit nutrition bars*

  8. I did move the Milk-Free blog back to here - http://www.godairyfree.org/Alisa-s-Blog/Alisa-s-Milk-Free-Blog/ and I update it regularly. It was too hard to keep the dairy-free stuff in two separate places. However, I have a foodie blog that I want to start, if I can ever get my first post up! I'll let you know...
