The adorable Kendra from a Superhero, Princess & Monkey tagged me for a meme. The tag is to post six uninteresting things about myself and in turn tag six others to do the same.

I'd imagine you're all quite eager to read more uninteresting stuff about me, so here goes.......

1.) Growing up I was very into softball. I was a pitcher and selected to play on several All-Star teams. And we were very good actually. During my career playing, I won several state championships and even made it to the World Series one year.

2.) I am ALWAYS late. No matter what. I hate this about myself (as does my husband).

3.) I puffy heart my neighborhood. There are tons of kids Madison's age. I've made some awesome friends. Joe is always hanging with the other Dads. We've taken a couple of adults only trips with our neighbors. This summer we're heading to Hilton Head with two other families from our neighborhood. We've outgrown our house, but love the neighborhood so much I can't bear to move. I am trying to talk Joe into building a house across the street from where we live now, but so far he thinks that idea is "ridiculous."

4.) I wear heels EVERYWHERE. Even at home around the house. I'm very self conscious about my height and can't stand to be without the extra lift I get from heels.

5.) When I was 31, I was baptized as an act of obedience and a symbol of commitment to the Lord. Growing up, my family did not attend church or pray together. I always believed in God. But, I did not have a personal relationship with Him. About six years ago, a friend invited me to a bible study. In preparation for this study, I began reading the bible for the first time. Immediately I felt a sense of peace and my life has not been the same since.

6.) I have a very annoying habit, in my head. If I hear a word, I try to figure out what other words I can spell from that word. For example, from the word "Bread" you can also spell: bar, bad, bed, red, bear, ear, are, dare, bra, read, beard. You get the idea. And did you notice that I didn't mention any two letter words? Oh, no sir re. That would not be challenging enough for my little head game!

Here's who I am Tagging:

Carey @ A Woman's Prerogative
Mandy at The Gratton Grapevine
Krissy the Firecracker Mom

If you want to play:

  • Link back to the person who tagged you.

  • Post these rules on your blog.

  • List 6 uninteresting things about yourself.

  • Tag 6 random people at the end of your entry (or like me, only three).

I wish I could wear heels everywhere, but all the heels I own from my former life are 4+ inches and I think I would break both of my ankles. I don't know how I used to wear those things.

Kristen said...

I was baptised last year at 32! I love it, I wasn't the only one baptised as an adult.

Oh yeah, and I was a pitcher in high school too!

Thanks for sharing your 6 things, I actually found them totally interesting!!

If I could wear heels all the time, I would. Too many years in running shoes, me thinks!

I'm late so often--I think I try to jam too much in at the last minute.

#6--that'll keep your mind fresh!!!

Jen, I am brain dead when it comes to this computer, but I will try to do this--your soooo cute!

krissy said...

I just tagged you for a meme too. I'll play along in tomorrows post. I just thought it was funny.

Check it out at my blog....it is a different one then what you just did.....

amanda said...

ok total opposite here - i am bare feet as often as possible since i am on the other end of the height charts.

and #6 cracks me up!!

now i am doing it in my head :)

Lisa said...

I'm tiny so I wear heels more than usual too :)
Would you believe I sometimes do wacky stuff with words too?! I put the letters of the word in alphabetical order so BREAD is A B D E R. I do this a lot in a long yoga pose to keep my focus :0
Very cool about the softball!

We are THAT Family said...

Those were great! I NEVER wear heels! That's awesome about your neighborhood-jealous.

And so cool about getting baptized as an adult!

Kendra said...

I too am always late! I swear I will be late for my own funeral someday.

That is amazing about your baptism. So good to hear.

#6 amazes me!

Ahhh heels - they certainly do wonders for the more vertically challenged of us (I'm five foot). Now that I'm eight months pregnant, heels aren't really an option. Actually, now the challenge is just trying to find something to fit my puffy feet into.

Your neighbourhood sounds awesome. What a difference it makes to live in a place where your children can play with their neighbours and it's even better when all the adults socialise together as well.

Warmest wishes

Hey Jennifer,
I just did this meme on my carepage. I need to try and get my new blog page to look cool like yours. We have all been sick here so I have not done much online. Hope all is well with you and the family.
Miss ya!!

I am amazed at anyone who could wear heels! Oh, and I love your #6!
