But I'll Do Anything To Get Out Of It!

7 things about me...

I was tagged for a 7 fact Meme by Busy Mamas.

Here are the rules:
  • List the rules on your blog.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.
  • Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
Here are my 7 facts:

1. I am really struggling right now with what I want to be "when I grow up" after my daughters are both in school full time. I still have a couple of years left -- but I'm someone who always likes to have a plan.

2. After being a stay-at-home mom for a couple of years, I became starved for adult interaction and I joined an on-line mom's group for my area. Now I am one of the organizers for the group and a few of the members are some of my greatest friends.

3. I absolutely adore chocolate -- in any form.

4. I have a strong dislike of bananas. I don't like to eat them, smell them or touch them. Because I know how good they are for you -- I thought that once I had children, I would have to hire a "Banana Nanny" to feed them to my kids for me. Instead, I just suck it up...the things you do for your children!

5. My guilty pleasure is Lifetime Network movies and Reality TV. Shhhhhhh

6. Any chance I get, I love to read chic lit novels. My favorite authors are Jane Green, Marian Keyes, Jennifer Weiner and I'm about to try out Jen Lancaster.

7. I turn 35 in September (feels like a big one to me). When I think about things, I am happy in all facets of my life except my weight -- so to attempt "total happiness" -- I've joined Weight Watchers and walk every morning to try to get those extra pounds off that are holding me down.

I am tagging: The Simple Wife, Karis Ramblings, The Dalai Mama, Tales from Oakbriar Farm, MaNIC MoMMy, Miss Elain-eous Life and Writing the Waves of Motherhood.

Thank you for tagging me! I love when people think of me to tag me, but I usually flounder and never get them done, and then it makes me look like a beeyotch, right? But I am going to try my hardest to do this one, although I think if I just put on my blog: "What She Said" I will be pretty close because I HATE bananas and love Jen Weiner and am on WW too! (I am 39 though, so you are NOWHERE near the big one!)

I eventually joined a mom's group too. Being at home can be so isolating. Glad you found it to be helpful and are now organizing it. It's so important to have things like that to do and focus on.

Have Fun!

Gotta love those online mom groups..they are a great way to meet new people! That's too funny about the bananas too - my kids pretty much live off of 'em.

Thanks for the tag! I finally got it done...took me long enough, huh? :)
