I'll Play Along

Janette from The Johanson Journey has tagged me and I'm a good sport, so I'll play along!
Here are the rules: 

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person(s) who nominated you: Janette from The Johanson Journey

3. Nominate 15 bloggers for this award (like Janette, I'm bending this one and going with 10. I lied, so as not to repeat any of the folks that Janette already tagged, I'm just going with 5.)

4. State 7 things about yourself.

5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination by linking to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by pingback. (again, copying Janette and just linking to those peeps here, hoping that they stop by and see that they've been tagged!)

And now, because I know the suspense is killing you, 7 things about me:

1. I have to make the bed every day, no matter what time. If I get home at 8 at night (the Rev is usually still in bed when I leave for work), I will make the bed, even though I know that I will just be getting back in it in a few hours. I also have to at least straighten the bed in a hotel, even though they have maids...

2. I cannot stand the sound that an emery board makes on fingernails, a file is fine, but an emery board makes me cringe.

3. I do not know how to ride a bike...unless stationary counts...

4. I love lists...to do lists, packing lists, party planning lists...I love to check things off on the list, so much so that if I do something that was not originally on the list, I will write it in, just so that I can have the satisfaction of checking it off. One day, list makers will rule the world, you will see...

5. I will learn to play the piano by the time I turn 40, no excuses. MeeMaw left me her piano and we will be bringing it home this summer, so it will be on like Donkey Kong.

6. I'm still figuring out Instagram and hashtags...follow me (cute little camera icon over there on the right, at the top), so I don't get discouraged before I figure it all out.

7. I am a complete 80's hair bands, 90's boy band junkie, I know them all. I could challenge anybody to a Bon Jovi/Hanson/Boyz II Men/NKOTB/BSB/N'Sync sing off and whip them soundly.

What don't I know about you that you will share?

YAY! Love your answers! I am a bed fixer too, especially at a hotel-- for some reason i want to give the illusion that i didn't actually sleep in it. hah.
Instagram is great-- just take pictures, and the more engaged you are with others will help keep you motivated. I have found new blog friends and instagram friends just by being apart of it-- trust me, its fun!! And-- you can make a picture book out of them! I am still working on figuring that part out.

I would definitely take you on in a sing off! You'd be stiff competition, I'm sure! :o)

You like to make beds? Please come live with me until my house sells. We have to make them every single day just in case someone comes to the house for a showing. I hate it.

I'm crazy about lists and making the bed too.

And I did this one already! HA!

Emmy said...

Did you see Bon Jovi on Idol last night? They have been a band for 30 years now! Crazy and made me feel kind of old.

My husband wishes I cared about making the bed half as much as you do :)

I love making my bed too. Nothing feels better than climbing into a nice bed that has the sheets and blankets even and flat. I also think it just makes my room look so much neater even if it's really a mess.

I love lists! I too add things I've already done to my list so that I can mark them off. Especially if my list is visibly to my husband. Gotta look productive even when I'm not. ;)
