I've been tagged by Leah and Melanie. Leah tagged me a few weeks ago and I am finally getting around to it. Once you have been tagged you have to write a blog with 10 weird random things, facts, or habits about yourself. Here we go:

1. I am a total sucker when it comes to infomercials. I will buy, or want to buy, anything I see that seems remotely fascinating. I mean, who doesn't need something that will peel potatoes and give you a six pack at the same time, right?

2. I LOVE to vacuum. I am addicted to it. Maybe because it is an "easy" job, or maybe because they kids like it too. When I was pregnant with Kirye I would vacuum at least twice a day!!

3. My kids laugh at me and my husband calls me crazy, but I love to dance. I've never had professional lessons, but I have a feeling some ABC big wigs might be giving me a call soon!

4. I love girly things like smelly lotions and makeup and high heels. I went to Seattle a few weeks ago (BY MYSELF...Scott stayed home with the kids for 2 days) and my mother-in-law and I had a hay day at these amazing outlet store in Tulalip. They had The Cosmetic Company Store where they sell tons of awesome makeup and beauty products for 1/2 the price it is normally. I bought the Mac makeup that I love! I also saw Bobby Brown lipstick there and was thinking of you Swishy! Oh man, I could have bought so much stuff there!

5. My first job was a paper girl. I started when I was 10 years old and finished after I graduated from high school. It was a great way to have a little extra cash, but you NEVER had a day off. I even had to work on Christmas morning. The other sucky thing was I had to wake up around 5am every morning! Are you freakin' kidding me? I could never do that now! Oh, and it was in Montana where some winter mornings are -40 with wind chill.

6. I have naturally curly hair, but I straighten it most days...mostly because it is easier to straighten than it is to do curly. It started getting curly when I when I was 14. Before that it was straight with a little wave. Now after I've had the kids it doesn't seem to be as curly.

7. I love grocery shopping. When I don't have the kids with me I spend so much time wandering around, checking out everything, and reading every label. I love it! My most recent kick has been to see how many things have high fructose corn syrup in them. Lately I have had to buy a lot of organic things because of all the foods...things you would never think of, that have hfcs in them!

8. Even though I love eat right and be healthy, I am also addicted to sugar. Ha ha. Does that make sense? I buy candy almost every time I go to the grocery store, even though I only eat added sugar (like candy or cookies) one day a week. I don't know what it is, but I have to have some sweets in the house. It's like I have this fear of a disaster happening where we can't get to the store and I don't have any candy in the house. Sunday is my day to eat sugar. Let me tell ya, some weeks are so hard, but when Sunday rolls around I feel such a sense of accomplishment.

9. My husband and I met in a psych ward. He was in room 120 and I was in 121. Just kidding. We both worked there and had a lot of free time to get to know each other since we would do grave yard shifts together. It was so fun. We have been married 6 years on the 15th of this month!

10.I love reality tv. Right now my favorites are The Biggest Loser, Big Brother and Project Runway. I also love Lost, Ugly Betty and Grey's Anatomy. I can't wait until we get some new episodes back on! Thank goodness for my dvr! I don't think I could live without that thing!

Wow! Writing ten random facts was a lot harder than I thought. I'm sure I will think of other more interesting things about me after I post this...especially since I am just so fascinating. Don't be surprised if you see me on Barbara Walter's most fascinating people one day!
