cool bits

Ronda tagged me!! She also made the stella banner that everyone is giving compliments on. Thanks girl, wish I had those photoshop skills!! OKAY, on with the tag- Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to blog about their seven things and post the rules as well . At the end of your blog, you need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!OK, here goes...

1. I was born premature. Only weighed 2lbs 10oz at birth. I have pretty bad eyes do to the amount oxygen that was given to me the first months of life. Not complaining because I am so glad I made it thru, when so many premies don't. Won't dare say how much I weigh, lol.

2. OKAY, don't laugh but I applied to George Mason University based on their marketing materials that highlighted the Patriot Center events whiched showcased Prince. LMBO!! I want to go there so badly in hopes that he would come back to VA again. I was accepted and he hever came back to the area while was at Mason. :( That was a major draw for me, Purple Rain Purple my mom's brothers and sisters live here so I could see them when I couldn't make it home (which is four hours away).

3. I have great grandparents and aunts that lived to be in their 100's on my father side. My grandmother will be 90 next month. Hope some of the juice was passed on to me. :)

4. I fractured my arm in the 4th grade while riding my next door neighbor's bike. The bike didn't have any brakes (I didn't know it) and I ran into the house across the street. Ouch!!

5. I love silver and white gold jewelry. In the 80's I only wore gold and you know the big earrings and a ring on every finger. I know tragic...havent wore gold in 10 years!! LOL Now I don't wear it at all and have all this other jewelry collecting dust.

6. I am really easy going and laid back. Some say too nice, but people seem calm around me and tend to tell me (and my sister) things that we would never say to strangers. We have gotten into conversations with people that we don't even now and they tell us their life story. I think it may be our accents and voices. don't know but it cool. We both have small voices. I still get carded for wine when I go to the store because they think I am younger, I am like dude I am 30 (with a smile).

7. I have several nicknames, Vee (started in college), Ronnie, Ronnie cakes. LOL...forgot who have me the last one.

OK...I tag Mara-May* , Amber, Nat, Amy, Robyn, Breanne, and Michelle

haven't posted my play lo's in a while. Love paper source to def. Had fun cutting up their latest magazine. :) I need to get back to this album, haven't done anything creative in it for a minute. that's it, have a great day chickas!!
