We interrupt your regularly scheduled reading...

...for some random information. I was tagged by the lovely Lylah to post 7 things about myself, some random, some weird (are the weird things not random?). Since I haven't been around here long, nearly everything about me fits into "random" or "weird," so I thought it would be a good way to get a little better acquainted.

  1. I was born in Michigan and lived there until I was 8.
  2. Since we left Michigan, I've lived in every state on the west coast (unless you count Alaska or Hawaii as "West Coast." In that case, this fact would be invalid).
  3. Growing up, I was the shy, smart one and my sister was the cute, funny one. I think she grew up to be smarter than me, but at least I'm not so shy any more.
  4. DH and I were married 1 month shy of the date we met 5 years previous. (Yes we dated that whole time. Well, except for the two days we were broken up before he proposed. And yes, we both agree now that 5 years is too long to date unless you meet when you're a teenager.)
  5. We waited 8 1/2 years to start a family (until DS was finished with seminary). We have two boys, Bug and Boo, ages 5 and 2 1/2.
  6. I'm a SAHM/WAHM (my work is intermittent), but prior to this my resume included: telemarketer (selling photography sessions for a Little League fundraiser), housewares and office products retail sales, summer camp worker, TV news production, Kirby (vacuum) sales, software QA supervisor, card catalog filer (when there was still such a thing as a card catalog), Fraud and Security supervisor, corporate recruiter and HR Director.
  7. My new favorite place to blog is Panera. They've only been around here for about a month. I love to come for an iced tea (and maybe a cookie...or if I'm hungry a Strawberry Poppyseed Salad) and hang out here making the most of the free WiFi.

So, I'll post the rest of the rules for the tagging:

  1. Link to your tagger and post 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.

I don't want to tag anyone who doesn't want to be tagged (or who may have already been tagged but I missed it), so I'm going to alter the rules just a little. If you'd like to participate and share some random info on your blog, leave me a comment saying to check out your 7 random facts and then link back here on your blog. I'll add a link to yours to this post.

I love Panera, but didn't even know they had wireless! Thanks for the tip. Sounds like a good way to get some writing done!

Have a great day!

I just stopped by Panera today! I tried the four cheese souffle. Too yummy.
My DH and I got married after knowing each other 14 months and people have said that it was not long enough. Now that we have been married 11 years, I don't think it is an issue.
