My First Tag!

I've received my first official tag by Mojito Maven over at one of my FAVE new blogs - Make Mine A Mojito. Thanks, girl!

Here are 7 superbly random and/or weird facts about yours truly...

1. I have 4 names- 2 first, a middle, and a last. However, my parents have called me by my middle name since the day I was born. One of the main questions I was asked after getting engaged was “So what the heck is your name going to be now???” Mr. Wonderful laughs about the fact that I could technically be stuck with 5 initials after marriage. Talk about a crazy monogram... (Mr. Wonderful actually has 4 names as well– 1 first, 2 middle, and 1 last- and we plan on giving our theoretical future children 4 names.)

2. I was born with short Achilles tendons. It was a problem when I was young as I couldn't run very fast (read: I was the slowest kid in the ENTIRE school...*sob*), but as an adult it has a welcome effect- I’m naturally built to wear 4” heels without any kind of discomfort. This is especially welcome as I’m 5’3” on a good day.

(hello, lover...)

3. I was a biology whiz in middle and high school, and actually cloned sheep DNA with my bio teacher as a “fun” after school activity. (Nerd alert.)

4. When I was a very small child, many friends and family used to give me green olives for Christmas. Not Barbies, not My Little Pony… Olives. And I LO-V-E-D it. I would toddle around the house all day eating green olives hand over chubby little fist until each jar was gone, and would subsequently drink the brine. You can understand my pure shock and amazement to be introduced to the glorious world of Dirty Martinis. “Wait, you mean it’s booze… AND green olives…!? You have GOT to be kidding me.”

5. My absolute favorite animal is a ferret. At one point in my life I actually owned 5 of them. At once.

6. (Totally with Mojito Maven on this one)- I absolutely cannot work out in shorts. Or even wear shorts in general, for that matter. I fully refuse to wear shorts in public, except for the 1 pair of khaki shorts I own (and they are for the golf course only). If/when we ever move back to golf country, I fully plan on a “Lilly P. skirts and capris only” policy.

7. I grew up hating the taste of drinking water. I know, I know, people say water doesn’t have a “taste”, but it seriously does. I used to hate it SO vehemently that I’d come from a run and drink milk to quench my thirst. I would go WEEKS without having a glass of actual plain water to drink. I’m just now getting over the taste issue, since I know it’s SO important for you to drink it (and helps the skin get into wedding shape!)

I'm going to tag 7 other new blog friends I've made in the past week:

Just found your blog!

I was an anti-water taste person as well, but now I easily drink over a gallon a day...

which is funny, because everyone else says Atlanta water is awful...and I like it.

Muffy said...

OOH! What an exciting tag! I'll have to think about this. Hmmm. You know what is odd? I refuse to go out in shorts too!!!! Cropped pants a' plenty but NO SHORTS! No thanks!


Wearing Mascara said...

Thank you for my tag!!!! I am super excited about this :-)

Miss Anne said...

Love your fun facts!

Just found your blog through the fabulous housewife!

Your olives explanation cracked me up!

:) Have a great day!

*(i'm adding you to my following list)*

Thanks for the tag!! I am going to post my facts tonight. When I was in 5th grade I begged and begged for a ferret, but I never got one, sad!

Legallyblondemel said...

Aw, thanks for the tag! I've got to put my thinking cap on for my fun facts, but I promise to post on it soon!

PS - I'm with you on the good olives, of course; they really can make or break a martini, don't you think?

Belle said...

That's so funny that you would be such a olive lover where I would just about die before eating one. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I'll be back to visit you again soon.

Sarah said...

Hi! Just came across your blog and I can't wait to read more and hear about your wedding plans! I have to say I'm a dirty martini girl too! Have a great day! :)

Elizabeth said...

I just stumbled across your blog and I am so glad! My hubby & friends constantly make fun of me / get on me for not drinking water. I just don't like it - I drink anything diet (diet - pepsi, coke, mtn. dew, dr. pepper, etc.). I recently saw my first ferret this year - a co-worker/friend of mine has one named Zima and it is presh! I had fun playing with the little fella.

Saw you on the tagged post for Make Mine a Mojito and thought I would say hello since I stopped by! I am also a fellow water-hater! ;-)
