Seven Random Things

I've been tagged! Chel asked me to list 7 random things about me... this is going to be simple and like it says; totally random.

1. I love the smell of freshly cut grass. This love evolves from a childhood where our family owned and operated a sod farm. Between my siblings and I, we were responsible for watering and mowing over 40 acres of grass. Oh, and don't tell anyone but I frequently mow the lawn in my flipflops.

2. I can't stand filing my nails. The nail file is like fingernails on a chalkboard. It's just clippers for me so don't look close:) Oh, the other problem with my hands is that I rarely use gloves while gardening.

3. Okay, now that everybody is grossing out because you are thinking I have green toes all the time and dirty fingernails I will try to smooth things over by saying that I have to have my showers in the morning and I can't leave the house without makeup. Showering at night is fine as long as I shower again in the morning.

4. I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters. I love them all and strive to be cool like them each and every day. Oh, and my six SIL's are a gift from God!

5. I've never felt cheated for having all boys!

6. I'm so excited for the next Harry Potter book/movie! It's been a real long time since I've read anything other than church books but am looking forward to spending some time with a book.
7. I went through a phase in Jr. High where I quacked like Donald Duck for 3 years.

Well, that was pretty random, wasn't it? If you want to participate consider yourself tagged!


  1. I mowed in flip flops all the time too!! And it took forever to get the green off my toes.
    At least you use nail clippers- I bite my nails.
    Boys rock! I used to say I wanted 4 boys in a row and then 1 girl for them to dote on.
    I'm not quite sure what to say about the Donald Duck thing... At least you didn't talk like Pee Wee Herman??
    I emailed you. :)

  2. I like Tori bite my nails, which is totally gross, I've wondered if I had worms.
    We have a friend who sang "I'm a child of God" in Donald Duck for E. Maybe I can hook you two up and you can do a duet. :)
    I too think my SIL are gifts from God too.

  3. Is there any other shoes to mow in?


    I blogged about my horrible IEP, and I am sorry I haven't gotten back to your phone call!

    Hope you are well-!

  4. A sod farm? Wow. That's different. I love having all boys, too!

  5. Quacked like Donald Duck? :) That is so funny.
    You're boys are so cute and each such a gift from God.
    I'm totally with you on #3...
