Tagged - 6 Random Things About Me.

I have been tagged by Food Allergy Buzz. I've never been tagged. It feels like being part of the in crowd.

First here are the rules:
  • Link to the person who tagged you.

  • Post the rules on your blog.

  • Write 6 random things about yourself.

  • Tag 6 people at the end of your post.

  • Let each person know you tagged them by leaving an entry on their blog.

  • Let your tagger know when your entry is up on your blog.
Now, 6 random things about me:

  • I was considered a geek in middle school and generally shunned in high school. I was just generally not very popular and hence cast myself as the outcast in all social situations.

  • Despite not being the popular type I ran for Miss Wisconsin THREE times as Miss Sparta, Miss Southeastern Wisconsin and Miss Wisconsin Central. Which now seems weird even to me. I won preliminary swimsuit two of the years I competed and placed Top Ten, 1st runner-up and 4th runner-up in that order. The picture is from 1994 with my roommate from that year who's name is Pam and I believe she might have been Miss Waukesha. I'm the one in the purple.

  • I have lived in 6 states. Wisconsin (19 years), Washington (8 years), Arizona (6 years) North Carolina (2 years) Virginia (2 years) and Minnesota (1 year). Adding that up you get my age. (No we are not a military family)

  • I once was an elf at Santa Land at the Bon Marche in Seattle.

  • I love movies about people striving for greatness but being held back by the everyday only to find greatness in their ordinary lives such as "It's A Wonderful Life" or "Mr. Holland's Opus" However, the movie I will watch over and over again is "Overboard" with Goldie Hawn.

  • I don't like fish. Don't make me eat them. But like fishing. We took Max recently. He let all the worms go. That's me fishing a couple weekends ago. David thinks I'm hot when I'm fishing.

Now for the taggees. I am tagging a few other FAMs: Kids Food Allergies Blog (because she's an awesome blogger), This Adobe (because her blog is so elegant), My Kids' allergies (because she was one of the first blogs I started reading), Owen's Food Allergies (because Owen is having a rough month), Fruit of the Womb (3 for me, because she always leaves nice comments on my blog), and Allergy Life in Loudoun (because she's a great voice for food allergies and a real go getter.)

thanks for the tag...I'm out of the country and will get to it next week when I return and am tired of doing laundry...

We're traveling far from home right now....the struggles with food allergies are always soo much ahrder when we're away from home(and not able to pack all the food we need or like to have). Anyway, it reminded me of your comment the other day about being sick of McDonalds:) If my kids would eat lunchmeat we'd try Subway.... but they don't!!!

That beauty queen picture is HOT! :) Thanks PurpleMommy - I think you have a great voice for food allergies. I'm so bored of being so darn serious all the time. I keep thinking "everyday stuff" is better. I have loved reading your stuff from day 1.
