the 7 meme

i don’t know what “meme” means, but here’s the game anyhow:

i was tagged by kristen.

Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

1. i used to have my belly button pierced. it was a wedding gift to sean. it came out when i was prego with grace.

2. when i make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, i have to do pb first, and always on the right piece of bread, jelly on the left. weird, i know.

3. although pregnancy is not my cup of tea, i’d love to give birth a million times. each time (so far) i’ve almost immediately said, “i want to do that again!”. it freaks sean out a bit.

4. i grew up in a very small town. i was the only girl in kindergarten, and one of 2 in 8th grade.

5. my eyes have changed color in the last couple of years. they used to be mostly blue, but looked green when i wore green. now they’re more green than blue. is this from having kids?

6. i can eat whatever i want and not gain weight (sorry, i know its annoying), except when i’m pregnant, when i’ve gained ~65 lbs with gracie and ~45 lbs with lily. i’m on track to being a big girl again!

7. i have at least 3 birthmarks. one on my shin, one behind an ear, one on the side of my rib cage. i say “at least” because my freckles have decided to join forces in some spots and create what looks like another birth mark.

now i have to tag 7 of you, but my blogging contacts are limited, so here’s four:
1. denise
2. courtney
3. heather
4. shannon
(btw – these are all sisters-in-law)

so tag, you’re it!

    ok, 1. I do despise you about the “I can eat anything I want” thing! I eat 100 caliores too much and I gain 10 pounds!! eeek! 2. That is how I make my PB &J’s also – it just works better! 3. It’s funny but I could watch you give birth a million times also! And you do make pretty cute babies! I did my 7 meme (whatever that means) for you :} love ya

    I just checked my blog and saw that I was tagged, so yes, I’ll pay it forward. And, BTW, I make my PB sandwiches the same way, only I take it one step further by setting the bread open face next to the slice it was next to in the bag-I line them up in a straight line and will only match them up with their “bag partner”. Am I OCD? You decide.
