My first award! ***Updated

I have been tagged with my first blog award by the lovely Tiff. Thanks lady!


So, here are the rules:

1. Link to the person or persons who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

1) My uncle Deral was an offensive lineman for the Green Bay Packers and is in the Packer Hall of Fame.

2) I was born, grew up, and currently reside in WI. But, if given the choice, I would move to Northern California in a second. My parents lived there for a year when I was 18 and I loved it there.

3) I have two middle names. One is a traditional middle name and the other is my mom's maiden name. My grandpa had three girls and my mom wanted to carry their last name on. I also gave P my mom's maiden name as part of her middle name.

4) I am a third generation Daughters of the American Revolution thanks to my many-greats grandpa Rufus Barney.

5) When I was in high school I was sure I would be a pediatric oncologist. While I am 95% happy with my decision to pursue something that is more 9-5, occasionally I regret not going to med school and get the crazy notion that I should go back. Then I remember I will be 40 before I would finish my residency and decide I am thinking crazy thoughts and open a bottle of wine.

6) I hate giving the kids baths. It is messy and it is uncomfortable leaning over the tub and they let the water get way too cold before they let me take them out. So, I make them take showers even though they hate them just to save myself the headache.

7) and, an extra one just for fun. I HATE Raoul's beard thingy. It is kind of a half beard? I don't like it. He knows it. It hurts to kiss him and, um, do other things. I have begged him to shave it but he won't. I really hate that thing.

Now, I get to tag six more....hmm, who shall receive the honor????

Meredith
Mel
Kevin
One Small Wish
Aunt Becky
Jill

Excellent....

**Update: Raoul just got a bit snarky with me about his "beard thingy" I don't think he appreciated that very much. So I will clarify. He has a goatee without a mustache. I only remember that I hate it when he hasn't trimmed it in a while and he kisses me and it rubs on my chin. And that happened last night when I typed up this post. Okay, I think that is it. I still don't like it but only when it gets a bit too long.

When I was in high school, I just wanted to be laid. Talk about high expectations.

Thanks for the shout/tag!
