Can you tell I am catching up from a busy week!?

I was tagged a few days ago!

I have to:
1. Link to the person that tagged you and leave a comment on their blog, so that their readers can visit. Sweet RaeAnne tagged me--she is adorable. She is only 16 years old!! Check out her blog and say hello!
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share 7 Random facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 random people at the bottom of your post, linking to their blog. Let each person know by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are my seven random things about me:
1. I am one of eight children.
2. I love Dt. A & W rootbeer (and Dt. Dr. Pepper, etc.), so much that I would NOT be surprised if dt soda runs through my veins.
3. I used to be addicted to Coke (bawaaa....not the drug...Coke the soda.) I seriously drank about 6 a day in college and would get bad headaches (Caffeine withdrawal) if I tried cutting back. I had to wean myself from that and it was not pretty. (My poor roommates!)
4. I can eat an entire box of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies in one sitting (and have!)
5. I have a black dot in my left eye (not the pupil, is another dot -- not quite as big!)
6. I am starting to get grey hairs. (It is NO wonder with my kids (heehee!) The funny thing is that they are not grey--they are WHITE. I have pulled more than I can count so I fear it might be time to start dying it...yipes!)
7. My biggest fear is life is dying before my children will have permanent memories of me.

I am tagging anyone who reads this because I don't want to forget to include anyone who would like to be tagged!

Thanks RaeAnne!

Well.. Diet coke runs through my veins :}
I agree with dying before my kids have permanent memories of me.. so we have to stay alive till the youngest is at least 8.. I don't know a soul who can truly recall anything before age 5 or 6.. Why is that? Does you husband know??
I don't mean family stories or recalls from stories and pictures!
My youngest daughter justturned 5 adnmy oldest is 17.... I have white hairs as well.I thought it was cuz I am blonde!! They are thicker and take up more space.. lol they also kinda curl how bizarre is that!
Don't pull them just color them:{ never grow old gracefully~kimmiek

I KNOW I have Diet Cherry Coke running through my veins, I am scared to count how many I drink in a day. I do force myself to drink water too, but probably not as much as I should. I agree with the first commenter, don't pull them out, just dye them!!

Those are some very interesting facts. I'm with you except mine is caffeine-free diet Pepsi. I've been a Pepsi fan as far back as I can remember.

My first white hair appeard at age 21! I did color it for quite a while but it would grow out sooooo
fast and it was expensive. I had the courage to let it grow out, I looked like a racoon for a while and that was TOUGH, lol! I'm so happy with it now because I feel like I'm not trying to hide anything. It does make me look older, but I don't care.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Let's not even talk about Thin Mints. I'm the cookie chair in our troop, so sitting in front of me is about 700 boxes of girl scout cookies. Oh the temptations.....

Nice to get to know you a little better!

Rose Ann said...

It's good to know you better! It seems we have quite a bit in common too (only I've been dying my hair for a while now *wink*).
