Random 8

Thanks to Amy over at Moms3Psalms! I think this is the first meme I've actually done. Let's see if I can do find 8 whole facts to tell.

First, the rules are to post 8 facts about yourself, then tag 8 people when you're done.

So.....(cue drum roll)
1. I sometimes imagine I can sing like Celine Dion. Usually in the car when I'm by myself. I love, love, love singing really loud but I'll only do it when I'm by myself, or with Gracie - looks like she inherited this from me! :)

2. I am officially at the same weight I was when I got married, exactly eight years ago today! This is also the lowest I've been since I got pregnant the first time.

3. I'm very, very introverted but have learned to enjoy being in social situations thanks to God's grace and some pushing from my hubby.

4. One of the reasons I hate being in social situations is because I end up really, really, really regretting something I said - either it was inadvertently rude, or just plain embarrassing.

5. I am often inadvertently rude. If I've done this to you, chances are, that I realized it later and then have deeply regretted it but was too embarrassed to apologize to you. So, for the record, I'm sorry!!

6. My pet peeve is people who are fake. I would rather deal with rude than insincere any day.

7. I admire, in probably an unhealthy way, the Duggar family.

8. I'm secretly very, very sad that I don't know anyone else IRL that isn't quiverfull minded. If I meet someone with several kids, I'll try to find out where they stand on the issue. I think people might take this like I'm passing judgments, when in reality I just want someone I can relate to and talk with on this subject.

Okay, so enough about me. Anyone else wanna play? Tag! You're it!

CONGRATS on your anniversary!

Okay, how did you get back to your wedding day weight? I've not gotten to that point in over eight years.

Oh, that's easy! Start out too heavy to begin with ;) I still have a few to go to get to my ideal.

Hi Emily,
I'm not in the habit of checking blogs regularly anymore, but I thought I'd stop by yours tonight. Happy anniversary! (And you looked just fine on your wedding day! I would have thought it impossible to get back to that after five children, anyway, whatever you started out at.)

Thank you again for your hospitality while I was in Waco. I really enjoyed the couple of times we got to chat. Wait a few years, and though I likely won't be near you "IRL," Lord willing you'll have at least one non-internet friend of the quiverfull variety. :) I'm betting you've found quite a few Mormons among the ones you've met and asked about?

Duchess of Fife said...

Thanks,Laura! How did we not discuss that quiverfull thing?! That makes me feel much less alone in it all :)

I'm so glad to hear from you. I've been wondering how you're doing. We think of you often and pray you are well!

Many blessings,
