7 Things Meme

Elaine over at THE MISS ELAINE-OUS LIFE tagged me to write out 7 things about myself. It has been a long time since I blogged last, so this will be a good re-entry.
Here are the rules:

The Rules:
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Here we go:

1. My favorite thing to say to hubby, sister, etc. is "Know anything new?" Translated this means, "Have any juicy information from the outside world?" DH hates it when I ask him this. This all started when I was in high school. My sister and I started asking each other if we "knew anything that our current crushes might have said about us." For instance, she would come home from school and I would say, "I'll tell you something Joe Blow (her current crush) said about you today in Algebra, if you know something that Hunk "My then crush" said about me in band. What we found out years later is that we both made up everything we said just to get information. The whole game was based on lies. The sad thing is I had her convinced this boy liked her enough that she asked him to the Sadie Hawkins dance. He said no, and she never forgave me for the humiliation she endured.
2. I have a very keen sense of smell. It is almost freakish. It is almost a curse rather than a blessing, depending on who I am with. I can tell if dhzz washed my kiddos hair even without putting my nose on their head. Dh sometimes likes to take shortcuts when bathing our children. He doesn't get away with it much.

3. I like to eat things most people don't, like the dark meat on turkey (with skin), dark chocolate, fatty pieces of meat, tomato juice, dark grainy bread. In school I was the only white milk order, while everyone else had chocolate.

4. I just cut off most of my hair. I've had long hair for 3 years, so this was a big deal. Dh actually loves me in shorter hair than long. Here is a picture

5.  I have to have my feet neatly tucked into covers.  Btw, dh loves his feet outside of covers.  Conflict has occasionally occurred.  

6.  I just turned 32.  I feel young and hip until I go to the mall and wonder why teenagers are even allowed out of the house after 5 pm.  There should be a mall JUST for teens.

7.  I am pretty frugal.  I just bought 4 new bath towels from Target, which meant to make room for them, I had to throw 4 of our old towels away.  We have had these towels for 10 years.  I actually was sad to put those towels in the smelly trash.  I tried to think of a good reason to hang onto them, but I didn't need any more cleaning rags.  It is hard for me to spend money on something for myself.  I love the "hunt" of a great deal.

I LOVE your hair, too! The cut and style really suit you. You look so sophisticated.

I'll do the "7 Things Meme" soon. Soon could mean sometime in the next two weeks, so that's what I'll try for! :)
