Tag—I’m It!

I was tagged by my new friend Cheryl of LDS Mom to Many for this 4x4 meme.  I haven’t done one of these in a while, and I always think it’s fun to learn a little bit more about a blogger, so I’m playing along. 


1. Four Places I Go

  • Walmart…way, way too often.
  • The library:  I love books, I love to read, and I love free!
  • Church
  • Thrift stores, not nearly as much as I used to, but I still enjoy it from time to time.


2. Four Of My Favorite Smells

  • Goodies baking:  cookies, cake, apple crisp…yum! 
  • The smell of my grandma’s house.  That house was torn down a decade ago, but occasionally I will come across the scent and it always brings back memories. 
  • Lily of the valley (the real thing, not a lotion or something).  It reminds me of my mom. 
  • Tide Original (powder, not liquid)


3. Four Favorite Shows/Movies

  • When Harry Met Sally
  • Emma (w/ Gwyneth Paltrow, but I don’t think I’ve seen any other version)
  • Designed to Sell (w/ Lisa or Monica) 
  • Antiques Roadshow.  First of all, the items are so interesting.  Second, it’s great when somebody brings in some little tchotchky and finds out it’s worth $100k.  Third, the reactions are often funny; someone will go nuts over their $1000 item, and somebody else will be so blasé about that $100k item.  (This Geico commercial makes me laugh—her reaction is perfect!)



4. Four Recomendations

  • Take a nap once in a while.
  • Always check for random out-of-place hair growth, especially once you hit your late thirties (gross, but true!)
  • Teach your kids to do some age-appropriate chores, which means the older they get, the more they can do.  My ultimate goal is to never have to do the dishes after supper!
  • Occasionally read a book just for the fun of it, not for parenting or self-help advice.


I’m tagging the following four bloggers; I hope they’ll play along!

Julie at Creating This Life

Shannon at The House Creative

Wendy at Ramblings from the Sunshine State

Libby at Life with the Mondellos

I like this kind of Tag! This is the first time I've seen it--but what fun to read a little more about you.

If you and I lived in the same town, I think we'd cross paths! :)

I love that you did this! So much fun to find out more stuff. I practically live at Wal-Mart! I love that commercial too! It's hysterical! Her "reaaaalllly?" cracks me up every single time.

How fun! Thanks for playing!
I love to learn more about people. Helps me to open up. I tend to be a nuts and bolts blogger and there is a lot more to me than that. :o)
The commercial is too cute!

This was great. I too love Emma (Paltrow version, and I've seen them all) and Antique Roadshow!!

too funny about your favorite smells-one of my all time favorite's is my granny's house which never fails to smell like tide and spring (and always something delicious cooking!)
