I've been tagged

This blogging thing is pretty interesting. Most of my blog readers are not bloggers themselves just friends and family trying to keep up with our adventures. But once you enter the blogosphere, new and interesting habits form between yourself and fellow bloggers. You begin to follow other peoples blogs and get to know them and follow what they are doing.

I have been "tagged" by one of my fellow bloggers and new friend Uma. I'm supposed to tell 6 interesting facts about myself. I will tag a few people as well so that I can learn a little bit more about some of my favorite bloggers that I keep up with. So I will tag Liz, Christina, and Janet. I won't be mad if you don't do it, but come on--- it will be fun!

Fun Facts!
1. I love musicals. I know, I'm a dork. Growing up, I preformed in tons of community theater plays. I loved it! I used to dream of being on Broadway and starring in a cheesy musical. My favorite is Legally Blonde. I know the entire show from start to finish. I will preform the entire thing for anyone who would like to see it.

2. Even though I am a serious girly girl, I like to camp, hike, and mountain bike. Reamer introduced me to these fun hobbies and many people were suprised to find out that I actually enjoy them. (one of them being me!)

3. One time, I beat up my sister! If any of you know my sister, you wouldn't believe me. I have always been the girly girl of the family, and she has been the sports girl. She even played rugby! She has always been a lot tougher than me. But this one time she made me really mad, so I just beat her up. My family called me Mohammed Ali for a few months after that. Luckily, she forgave me. I think that she was in such shock, that she froze and didn't know what to do. It actually made us grow closer together and after that we became best friends.

4. Math is really hard for me. I know this sounds weird, especially because I have had a career in finance since college, but it is true. For some strange reason, I wanted to prove to myself that I could do something that I thought was really hard for me and so, I decided to make it a career. I don't understand why I do things like that?

5. In college, I had the best car ever! It was a 97 Toyota Paseo. Most people would have hated it, but I loved it. I was a convertible and I have so many awesome memories in that car. It was sort of a piece of crap (duct tape holding up the back window, fishing line was used to sew the top on, scratches and dents were all over it, it smelled like mildew because rain would pour in the windows through the duct tape), but I still loved it. It was so tiny that it could barely fit anything in it. Reamer and I would load that thing down traveling from college back and forth to Newnan and you couldn't even see out of the windows. We went on so many road trips in that car. If you sat in the back seat, your head was higher than the front windsheild. It looked hilarious. But my friends and I loved riding around T-town with the top down and music blaring! So many fun memories! (I didn't change the oil in it, and the engine blew up. After 7 years of driving it, I think it was time for it to go anyway.)

6. I absolutely love TaeBo! I know that it is really nerdy, but Billy Blanks really inspires me. You can't get a better workout than with the Advanced Ripped TaeBo video ! I have around 25 TaeBo tapes but I have one that is my favorite. I might even be able to do it without the video. It is sort of embarassing, and I know that it isn't as popular as it once was, but it is still AWESOME to me! Just remember, "you gotta give something to get something...." That is what Billy always tells me!

Ok, time for my tagged bloggers to give me some fun facts! Happy Blogging!
