MeMe Monday

Amber tagged me and I am tagging Jennie and Laura.

1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Post the rules.
3) Share six non-important things / habits / quirks about yourself.
4) Tag at least three people.
5) Be sure the people you tagged KNOW you tagged them by commenting what you did.

Here are my six things:

1. I don't like my food to touch. I am very funny about this, because this rules out things like smoothies. I do have an exemption clause to this rule. I will drink a smoothie if the fruits are similar, like orange/pineapple. They are both citrus fruits and similar in color so they can mix!

2. I am neurotic about matching clothes, they have to feel like they go together. I have carried this trait on to my poor children. I am unable to be one of those mother's who is so secure in herself that her children can just throw on whatever tshirt and jeans. I have to coordinate outfits, down to the socks and shoes. I have recently started letting Charlie pick out his own socks, they never match the outfit....I'm taking babysteps....

3. I love grilled cheese sandwiches. Here's the quirky part.... I like to mix ketchup and mayo and dip my grilled cheese in it.

4. I am obsessed with the show Jon and Kate Plus 8. I don't wish sextuplets on myself or anything, but I love watching how she runs her home. I am totally inspired by them!

5. My guilty pleasures are McDonald's french fries and anything that involves peanut butter and chocolate.

6. I was born on New Year's Day and my siblings are 13 and 15 years older than me....can we say "oops!"

Hee, I can say Ooops with you - my siblings are 15, 13, & 11 years older than me ;) My mother has always very graciously declined to use the word "mistake" and gone with "surprise" instead lol. Did you always get the "do you guys have the same father?" thing too?

sarah bean-

Totally! I always disclosed that we "even have the same parents". My parents alway went with "surprise" or "blessing", but my brother and sister were always quick to remind me I was an Oops!

You're too funny! If it makes you feel any better, I too am OBSESSED with Jon & Kate Plus 8. I DO NOT want sextuplets but I enjoy watching Kate & how she handles herself and her family!

Does daniel hate when you watch that show?? Matt despises it. He can't understand why I want to watch a whole bunch of loud little kids once ours are quiet and asleep! But I am totally fascinated!

OMG...Adrian doesn't like J&K+8 either? What's the guy's problem? I also have the food not touching thing, but the grilled cheese with ketchup and mayo...nope, in fact...ew! But you enjoy!
