I have been Tagged

My friend Amy tagged me, and I really do not usually do these types of things. I get emails all the time with the lists of questions, and you are supposed to answer the questions about yourself and then send it to 10 people and then THEY have to do it. Usually, towards the end of the list, there is a question that says, "Who is least likely to answer these questions?" and honestly, I am usually on that list. I really enjoy reading other people's lists, because there are always little surprises and you find out new things about people that you care about. But I just never took the time to do one myself.

However, this was fun, and you actually can learn something about yourself by doing it. So thanks Amy!

FUN! You did it! I know, I know... I never do the email ones either. Way to play though.

DId you guys just watch the movie Once? We just heard about it and saw it the other night and also LOVE it and the soundtrack! Did you see Glen was one of my faves too? We have so much in common...want to be BF?

Love you Courts!

This was fun to read. I might just have to try it myself...I liked your ski lift one. So true. So true.

Love you!

Hey Courtney! After I shrieked the kids started crying. Then I felt bad. I was just so shocked. So after I calmed them down, I took pictures. I realized it would make a great story and the hair will grow back.

I think we've decided on the layers but I might actually take her somewhere to get it cut. I don't want to make it look worse! It's more intimidating than cutting boy's hair!

Loved all your answers. The "Caleb get down" answer was great! I remembered your blog on all the places he's climbed on. Oh, the adventures...

Glad Steve has a blog. We'll have to check it out. Take care!

Hey babe, that was really fun to read. I just don't know if I can do it though! SPH
