Yippeee... I got tagged

D-Blogged has been kind enough to tag me for a meme - woopie! Seriously, just the other day I was thinking how cool it would be for some random blogger friend to tag me, and there you go... prayer answered. YES!

So I guess the rules are I have to name 7 random things about myself, that most people don't know. Which, now that I think about it, is going to be kinda hard, because I am sort of an open book. I think most people know pretty much everything about me???

Then I have to tag 7 more bloggers and leave a comment to let 'em know.

First and foremost - 7 random things:

1. I studied French and Italian opera for 9 years of my life. that is how I learned to sing.

2. I learned to count in French before English and I only studied French in school, even though I am, OBVIOUSLY, Italian

3. I speak no Italian. I only know the cusswords they use in NY.

4. I was born in VA, not NY. Right outside of Washington DC actually, but I graduated highschool in CO.

5. I was a gymnast for most of my life.

6. I am only 5" tall. Nothing more, nothing less.


7. I have wanted to move to Italy since I was 5yrs old. I almost bought a run down olive oil mill in Tuscany (before we bought this house) but somehow it didn't work *one tear*



That was probably pretty boring to read, but hey, that is me. Boring and as Elysa would say, bizarre ;)



OK... onto 7 people I want to tag...

1. Elysa at genpink - she was my first blogging friend and the one that got me addicted. I owe it all to you E!!

2. At Home in Rome - one my serious fav's. I am so jealous of her Roman lifestyle

3. Sassy at eye heart internet - freaking hysterical!

4. Nanette at Say it, Don't Spray it

5. Tina Vaziri at the Adventures of Tina and Mr Bee. Hysterical and amazing illustrations, plus she is a fellow Texan ;-)

6. Sognatrice at Bleeding Espresso - nothing but Italian love!

7. CDP at tortious - truly touching!

I'm off to tag my picks. Enjoy the reads. they are great!

Opera singing? That's amazing. I'm impressed with your facts, haha. :)

I love these types, it's so fun to learn little things like that about each other. I was in gymnastics for about eight years, I miss it.

Thanks for tagging me! <3

How sweet are you?? Thank you so much, I'm really touched to know that you enjoy my blog so much.

I think you are pretty super too, Miss Drea! So . . . multilingual, opera singing gymnast? A woman of MANY talents. That's awesome.

Thanks for the reassurance about the stretch mark scars. Although, not all women even get the stretch marks. Maybe you'll be one of the lucky ones!!

I'll do my tag over the weekend. Have to think of a few interesting things about myself . . .

my brain is too tired to think of 7 things right now but I will do this later. I like your "nothing more nothing less" that's funny
