Tagged - A Little About Me

JenMarie702 tagged me. My first tag (that I know of). Here goes. I am tagging the following - hoping they have not already been tagged!
1. Kimba at All Things Kimba
2. Corrie at Musings of a Not So Desperate Housewife
3. Elizabeth at Suburban Cupcake
4. Mrs. P at Preppy Chic
5. SavvyCity Farmer
6. Home Daisy at Cottage Bethy
7. Sarah at the Seven Spot
8. Lisagh at Grosgrain Garage

The rules:

One: Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
Two: You need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names/pseudonyms/blogs.
  1. I must clear my throat more than I realize because my daughter tells me she can find me in a store by just listening for me.
  2. I have auburn hair and didn't like having it as a child because it was something that I was teased about (Red is Dead, etc.). Now that it is popular, and I'm old enough to appreciate it, the color is fading. Argggh
  3. I'm going to be a grandma for the first time. My daughter is expecting in January. We're very excited.
  4. I am the youngest of three and the only girl. I always wonder what it would be like to have a sister. My brothers seem to think I was spoiled growing up. Maybe compared to them but definitely not compared to my friends.
  5. I'm fairly scared of heights. Don't like to get to the edge and look over. Grand Canyon just doesn't look the same from the parking lot! LOL
  6. I volunteer at a local hospital in the OB Unit. I answer their phones, let people in to visit patients and other random things. I enjoy helping out the nurses who work so hard and being in the health community.
  7. I have read 4 books from the list of "1001 books to read before you die" this year. I guess I need to read about 25 books per year if I live until 86. Maybe I'll read 50 books when I'm 75 and older!
  8. I've been in every state but two (Alaska and Delaware). My family camped for three weeks in the summer as I was growing up and we did a lot of traveling. I did a lot of camping with my children too so they have been to quite a few states as well. Don't know how we missed Delaware!
This was fun! Your turn ladies!

I must say that if you ever get the chance to go see Alaska it is so beautiful. I went on a cruise with my father almost 3 yrs ago and the scenery and everything was breath-taking.

You seem pretty normal

Wow! Only TWO states you haven't seen? That's great. I love to travel, so hopefully I can follow in your footsteps!

#1 reminds me of my mother... she loves Marshalls and TJ Maxx more than I do and so when I am at the store I know if she happens to be there too by her cough. We have run into each other several times at one or the other!
