I got tagged!

I got tagged from Island Life on December 14th and am just getting to it now. (Better late than never right?)

Here are the rules:

The Rules:
Each player of this game starts with the “6 weird things about you”. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says “you are tagged” in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

1. I hate vegetables; however, my favorite soup is split pea with ham. Yeah, I know, I'm strange.
2. I am deathly afraid of bees. I stepped on one when I was younger and it stung me and since then I run from them.
3. I changed my major three times and transferred schools three times before finding my "fit". Because of this, it took me 5 years to finish my undergraduate degree.
4. I don't like my food all mixed together like in casseroles. I have never made one and probably never will.
5. I don't know how to swim. I took swim lessons when I was younger but never really learned. I can do a mean doggy paddle though!
6. And finally I only started to wear make-up recently. I was one of those girls who didn't see the point and hated to take the time to put it on. Now I enjoy doing it for special occasions and to work for meetings. It's a big change for me!

Now, if you are reading this, consider yourself tagged. Let me know if you participate as I would love to see your answers!

Happy New Year.....

Happy Holidays

I know it's been quite a while since I have posted. Time has flown by but it's also been a stressful time. The holidays were hard for me and I do have to say it wasn't one of my favorite Christmas'. But I survived and made it through. I have a lot of stuff to put away. I spent a lot of time with my family and friends. That was definitely nice! Here are Peanut and Carmel after Christmas. Carmel got a new toy and LOVED it. We got Peanut a new toy and less than 24 hours, Carmel had one end chewed apart. She defintely makes me laugh.

How were your holidays? Any plans for New Year's Eve?

Thank you

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has left such kind messages and have been willing to lend an ear to me. I appreciate the concern and genuine kindness that people have shared with me.

Here is a picture to share with you all:

This is one of my favorite little cousins who can always put a smile on my face. This was taken a while ago but you can still understand the cuteness!

We interrupt this blog....

....for some news.

Due to some personal stuff that is going on, I will be taking a break from blogging. I know that at some point, I will find writing my feelings out as therapeautic but at this point, I just need some time away. I will continue to visit all my favorite bloggers and please continue to check back to see if I've checked in.

Thank you everyone! Hopefully I will not be gone long....

Welcome, Snow! ***UPDATED***

Well, I got up this morning to go to internship and guess what? We had gotten 7.5 inches of snow since 3am--woah!!! It was snowing side ways and the news kept saying "DON'T GO OUT SIDE IF YOU DON'T HAVE TO"

So...I didn't. I climbed back into bed and slept until 9:15am. That was nice. So it is still snowing and I can't wait to see how much more we get (yes, that is sarcasm you may have noted). So today I am cleaning, wrapping presents and more cleaning. This place gets so out of shape when fiance and I are always working or gone. It's hard to keep it clean when I'm so tired by the time I get home and just want to go to bed. Anyway, I'll try to take a picture later and post it to show just how much snow we've gotten.

Have a super Friday--oh and we are going to a PACKER game this weekend so I'll post pictures from that too after the weekend is over.

What are your plans?

We now have 12.5 inches of snow as of noon!!!!
