Two-fer Tuesday Tags

I'm baaaaaaack!!  It's been a busy couple of days.  I haven't posted anything since Thursday!  *gasp*  Life has a funny way of getting in the way sometimes.  The hubs and the besties and I escaped for the weekend and of course I didn't have internet down there (more on the trip later).  Well, we did, but I wasn't interested.  And then I was too tired to do anything when I got home on Sunday.  Monday night was spent doing my nails (they went nekkid the entire day - *double gasp*).  So, today, since it's Tuesday, you get two posts from me!!  Lucky you!

I've added a couple new bloggers to my reading list recently and two of them tagged me for an award/question session.  I love to find new bloggy buddies.  But I hate it, too.  I have I don't know how many blogs on my list and I can't NOT read them.  Each one of the blogs I follow because I love them.  And, 9 times out of 10, I comment.  What fun is posting if you don't get any feedback, right?  So now that they don't think I forgot about them, here are the blogs that were sweet enough to include me in their awards/question sessions.

The wonderful Emily from Wife, Check.  Mom, Check. Now What? tagged me for The Lovely Blogger Award.  I "met" Emily through a collection swap in September (was it September?) - she sent me an AWESOME box of red, white & blue goodies.  And now that I think of it, I never made that post, either.  Wow.  I'm really suckin in the posting department lately.  I love Emily's blog - she shares her experiences of raising her adorable daughter and she tells it like it is!  Thank you, my dear Emily, for thinking of me for this Lovely Blogger Award. :)
The award says to thank your tagger and then tag 10 bloggers.  I'm going to break the rules a little and tag only 3 because I have to tag some more here in a second.

Go check out these lovely girls and see what I like about them!  Oh, and if you decide to hang out a while, be sure to tell them I sent you.

And now for part 2!

The lovely La Tache from Smiling Is Good For Your Teeth tagged me for a question and answer session!  Ms La Tache is getting married in 7 months - she takes you along with her on her journey to become a wife of a Marine.  If the pictures are any indication, this is going to be one awesome wedding!  And she's always so positive!  Maybe, if I keep following her blog, some of her positive energy will rub off on me.  A girl can dream, can't she?  LOL  On to the questions!

1. What are you going to dress up as for Halloween?  I don't usually dress up for Halloween and this year probably won't be any different.  I wear Halloween scrub tops to work...that counts, doesn't it?

2. Do you keep your birthday and holiday cards?  Sometimes, but not always.  If they're those cool photo cards, yes.  I really need to start stashing them so I can make collages or projects with the boys.

3. Where is your favorite city?  I'd have to say that would be Santa Cruz, CA.  My family has a house on the yacht harbor (that's being remodeled by the family).  I remember quite a bit of time spent up there as a kid.  Since I moved to New Mexico, I think I've only been there once and that makes me a sad mouse.  But...we're going there for vacation next Summer!  I. can't. wait!

4. What material item do you want, but don't want to buy for yourself?  This is probably going to sound weird, but a nail polish.  Nfu Oh #61, to be exact.  (It's awesome - Google it!)  It's a little more expensive that my average bottle of polish and that's not counting shipping.  Maybe Santa will put it in my stocking this year for Christmas.

5. Coffee or Tea?  Coffee!  The hubs gave me a coffee grinder for Christmas and we've used it pretty  much every day since then.  There's nothing better than a fresh, hot cup of coffee first thing in the morning!  And just a side note: Why does everything taste better if somebody else makes it for you?
6. What is your most embarrassing moment? (or "laugh-at-yourself" moment, if you don't get embarrassed) OMG I have too many to list!  Let me think of something...I might have to continue this in another post because I can't, for the life of me, come up with anything right now.

7. What mode of transportation do you use to get to work?  My trusty 2007 Ford Fusion.  If I didn't live 20+ miles from work, I'd probably take the bus, but I'd have to leave the house even earlier than I do already (if I'm the early person at work, I have to leave the house by 6:45 to get the boys dropped off at Grandma's and to the office before it opens at 8)!

8. If you could be ANY animal, which would you be, and why? One of my lazy arse cats.  I swear, they don't move a muscle the entire time we're gone during the day.  The get up first thing in the morning when we do, and then they're nestled in for a long Winter's night by the time we leave for work.  They really have a hard life. *rolls eyes*

9. Why did you start blogging? Because my bestie made me do it.  LOL  Really.  She has her wonderful, beautiful blog Makeup Zombie and as I watched her put her stuff together, it made me want to do my own.  It started out as a way to share my boys with my out of state family and friends, but it expanded to include pretties and yummies.  Manicures, polish addiction, recipes, family.  It has it all! 

10. What has made you smile...TODAY? My kids, of course.  Nate, my 4-year-old, asked me this morning if I had good dreams in my head last night.  How can you keep from smiling with a cute question like that?  And Mason, my 1-year-old, points and babbles on and on about whatever like he's telling me all about whatever it is he's pointing out.  He's going to be talking before I know it!

Now it's my turn to ask the questions!
1.  Where did you grow up and where do you live now?
2.  How did you meet your significant other?
3.  If money wasn't an issue, what would you do (would you work, volunteer, etc)?
4.  What was your first concert?
5.  If you were granted a "last meal", what would it entail? 
6.  What is your biggest fear, and why?
7.  What's your favorite movie, and why?
8.  What was the best thing you ever got for Christmas?
9.  What's the meaning behind the name of your blog?
10. If you had the opportunity to know your future (with certainty), would you learn all you could or just learn as you go (and why)?

I want to know more!  I want to know about YOU!

Like the others, go check out these awesome blogs!  I love every single one of these for completely different reasons.  In my opinion, these are some of the best out there.  Please tell them I sent you. :)

I'm off for now.  I'll be posting about our adults-only weekend later on this evening while the hubs is whiling away the hours at Planet Ego.  See you soon!
