I have been tagged!!!

Yep - I have been tagged again - I can't reveal all my secrets...you might think I'm weird - LOL!!!
Krystie Lee - http://www.cupcakemartini.com/ gave me the honor....pls go and visit her - she really cracks me up...plus she makes the most beautiful cards too!!!

Here we go...I have to come up with 7 random/weird fact!!!

1. Some of you probably don't know that...-I was born and raised in Germany!!!
I lived in Nuremberg for a long time and then met my hubby and we lived in Heidelberg for
3 1/2 yrs before we moved to the States 10 yrs ago.

2. I used to be a Flight Attendant for the German Airline Lufthansa and traveled all over the
world...my favorite place was South Africa!!!

3. I had all three of my girls naturally no drugs nothing and my hubby still owes

4. I'll be 40 years young this year!!!

5. I speak better English than I can write...hate the grammar!!! So if I write funny - which I
probably already have - forgive me!!!

6. My dad is partly Italian and I have the "Mediterranean" influence...dark hair, dark eyes...etc
and I always get a kick out of people thinking I'm Mexican or from some where else !!!

7. I know one last one...I never wanted to have children - how did I end up with three???
Don't get me wrong - I love my girls, but my mom was a single mother and struggled....
and I just thought it's not for me...until I found my wonderful hubby!!!

I'm suppose to list 7 different people.....consider yourself tagged when you read this!!! Let me know if you played...love to read your weird stuff too!!

Fun facts, Silke! I turn 40 this year, too (yikes!). When is your birthday?

Laura said...

Too fun Silke! Such a great way to learn a bit more about you! Thanks for sharing...I would have guessed English wasn't your first language...but I mean that as a compliment. I can almost hear the way you speak through your writing and I love it! It sounds sweet and wonderful, even when you have it grammatically correct, I hear it!

Ok I noticed that you asked people to put their 7 facts but no one has yet so I will be the first.

1. My mother is from Quebec City and my father is from Barbados
2. I used to work in a factory as a line worker and slipped on mayonaise and twisted my knee.
3. In the factory I worked at; in the summer I would clean out the pickle tanks. One word...NASTY
4.When my son plays baseball I wear a large hat that is made of the character "Mike Swarwosky" the eyeball from Monster INC. cartoon and when my son does not hit the ball due to it being a poor pitch, I scream out "GOOD EYE".
5. I am in my mid 30s and still have to get a driver's liscence
6. I only started scrapbooking/card making in the winter of 2006.
7. I love to eat cottage cheese and applesauce mixed together.

Well I hope this helps you to get more to add.

Wow, how cool is that! I've been following your blog for some time and now that I read you're from Germany as well, I wanted to know where from precisely, so I searched on your blog and found this! That's so cool, I live in Heidelberg, too!! Aww, what a shame you're not here anymore. Liebe Grüße aus Heidelberg - Nina
