Meme (I've been tagged!)

I've been tagged by Jennisa to complete this Meme (I need some clarification on what a meme is and what the title means if anyone can help.)

Here goes...

  • Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules.
  • You need to choose 7 people to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!
1. I love to decorate my house, my latest style is antiques! My mother-in-law got me hooked. I like old farm house/ beach house type peices, like old white washed windows and beadboard, that kind of stuff. (wish I had more time and money for it.)
2. My husband and I are junior high sweethearts, I spotted him in the seventh grade hall at the beginning of my eighth grade year. I couldn't get over his gorgeous eyes! The rest is history. I love him more and more every day.
3. I love to write, it is my soul's voice, and I believe the Lord speaks through my writing to others at times and always speaks to me through my own writing, which never ceases to amaze me. To God be the Glory! I also enjoy reading, although with little ones, I rarely find the time.
4. I'm a typical firstborn, straight A's (okay, maybe a B here and there), and a perfectionist at times, although I'm getting more relaxed with age. Children help with that too. I have a bachelor's degree in Human Development and Family Studies, which I only "used" for a year before starting my career as a fulltime homemaker.
5. I was the supporting lead in my high school musical as a senior. We did, "How to Succeed in Buisness without really trying." I played "Smitty", a behive wearing secretary. My solo of fame was "Coffee Break". I love to sing. I'm on worship team at church.
6. I birthed my first daughter with no drugs. I thought I was going to die, literally! I was no hero, I went straight for the epidural with my second daughter, one of the best decisions I've ever made. Pain that puts you at death's door is HIGHLY overrated!
7. I LOVE the outdoors! Backpacking in secluded places, climbing high moutains, washing my hair in ice cold rivers, eating by firelight, sleeping in a down sleeping bag in a two man tent, the sound of the wind through the evergreens, the brilliance of the stars with no city lights to hide them, ahhh... Okay, now I'm really needing my mountains!

Hi Sarah,

Fun getting to know you more! I can't believe you met your hubby in 7th grade. Please don't tell my daughter that, okay? She already thinks she's ready for love, anyway! And BTW, refresh my memory again how you know Jenn?

I have to admit, I don't know what a meme is either! I am AMAZED that you had a natural child birth! What a woman you are! Didn't know you could sing! See...isn't it fun to find out more about our bloggie friends?

Sarah, I found this on Wikipedia (the online encylopedia).

The term "meme" coined/popularized in 1976 by the biologist Richard Dawkins, refers to a "unit of cultural information"...

I hope that helps. =) As I read over your list, and even though I already knew these things about you, I wondered how you and I have gotten to be such good friends. =) We seem to have some opposites happening... But I love that first and foremost, we're sisters in Christ, we both put our families first, and we get to hold each other accountable. I love you!
