National Body Challenge & a meme — January 16, 2009

National Body Challenge & a meme

Question of the day:  is anyone doing the National Body Challenge?  I was asked by the NBC folks if I would feature it on my blog here and I am more than happy to do so (free of charge – cuz that’s how I roll, and plus they didn’t offer).  I can not make myself get excited about the Biggest Loser, but I really like the NBC. The National Body Challenge is, by their own definition, not a way to lose weight, but a way to live a healthier lifestyle.  I can totally get on board with that.  It’s an 8 week program by the Discovery channel and I think it is a really good way to improve your eating and exercise routine.  When you register it asks you all kinds of questions and maps out a plan for you.  I have registered but I haven’t really taken the time to explore everything the site has to offer.  Oh and did I mention it’s free?  Let me know if you have had any experience with this and I’ll let you know how my experience goes, mkay?


Spring tagged me for a meme the other day and I’m just now getting around to it, so here goes:

7 Things About Me

1) I was born with brown eyes, but they are almost completely green now. Weird, huh?
2) My husband thinks it’s weird that I can move my big toe independently of my other toes. I can pick things up and even pinch him with my toes when the need arises. What’s weirder is that I’m sort of proud of this.
3) The new love of my life is my subscription to XM satellite radio.
4) This meme is making me think I am weirder than previously thought.
5) I am the Yahtzee Queen. Last week I rolled TWO yahtzees in one game. Yes, I am THAT good.
6) My favorite food in the whole world is my mom’s Chicken and Dumplings. Little pillows of heaven floating around in a heavenly broth.
7) I can sing like Patsy Cline. Okay that’s totally a lie…but wouldn’t it be cool if it were true?! I sing more like this.

Okay so there it is. Now you know exactly how odd I really am…or maybe you already knew and were just too polite to say it out loud. Anyway, that’s a tiny bit of me to carry you through the weekend.  I”m not going to tag anyone for this because I think I have already tagged you all once before, but if you want to play along feel free – just let me know if you do so I can see just how weird you all are!  😉

Okay well that’s about all for today kids. I hope you all have a wonderfully active weekend full of good healthy food and fun!  I hope I do too.

My Very First Ever Meme!! — June 11, 2008

My Very First Ever Meme!!

LauraN tagged me for a meme -my first ever!!  I feel like one of the cool kids now!   I’m supposed to tell you 5 things that you may not know about me.  (Ooooooo, can you feel the crackle of excitement in the air?!) I’m so excited!

Here be da Rules:

(1) Link your tagger(s) and post these rules
(2) Share 5 unknown Facts about yourself
(3) Pay it forward! Link 5 more bloggers and include their names in your post
(4) Leave them a comment on their blog and let them know that they’ve been tagged

Here we go!

1)   I have a degree in French.  Yep, that’s right, the Okie can parler some Francais!   After college I found that there were not very many employment opportunities for French-speaking co-eds.  I was going to become a high school teacher, but after a semester of student teaching, I realized that I don’t really like kids.  I love MY kids, but other people’s kids? Not so much.

2)  My biggest regret?  NOT taking Spanish in high school and college.   (See #1)

3)  I am actually quite shy (I know, hard to believe).   However, once I get to know someone, no matter how hard I try to restrain it, my goofy side inevitably comes out and I become the life of the party.  It just takes me a while to warm up.

4)  I am neither a city girl nor a country girl.  I am stuck somewhere in between.  I have a love beautiful high heels, but I also love fishing from a bass boat.   I read classics like Rebecca, but I can also tell you the names of all the rock stars in the BASS fishing world (thanks to the hubs and his addiction to BassMasters every Saturday morning). 

5)  I have two sisters who are 9 and 10 years older than me.  I sort of grew up as an only child, but with 2 extra moms.  My sisters and I think we are the funniest people on the face of the planet – when we get together we actively try to make each other laugh. It’s a riot!  I wouldn’t trade my sisters for anything! =)


Now that you know a little about me,  I am tagging the following fabulous ladeez for this same meme:

Have fun girlies!!!
