Tag, I'm it!!!

Traci, my friend from high school tagged me, so here it goes. I found this one to be pretty interesting...Thanks for sharing. I know most of you won't do these, but I had time at 5am this morning.

6 Random facts:
1. Link this post to the person who tagged you
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. List 6 random things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up

So here it goes:

1: Even if someone has disappointed me in the past, I always expect the best from everyone. This is a constant topic of conversation around our house, because Kyle says I should learn that no one is perfect and that once they have lost trust it should take a long time to earn it back. I guess I like to give everyone the benefit of the doubt and then see how it goes, but this often ends in hurt and seeing that people can't change as easily as I think that they can.

2: I love the channel TLC. I could watch Jon and Kate plus 8 all day long. Yes, Kate seriously annoys me, but if I had 8 children running around my house all day long I would probably be a bit on edge too. I also enjoy watching Little People, Big World. Once again, Kyle does not like either of these shows and prefers to be out in the garage if I am watching them. I tivo them and watch them when he is at work.

3: My dream job would be to be a part-time, event/wedding planner. Yes, it is very stressful. I currently plan weddings on occasion and it stresses me out, but I love it. I wish that there was enough business around here for me to keep busy and not have to do anything else. I have looked lots of places to find this type of employment, but I can't seem to find it.

4: I do NOT like animals. I am allergic to cats and I could totally do without dogs. I am still nice to animals, but I would prefer that they leave me alone. Yes, I do think that kittens and puppies are cute, but I don't want to touch them. Touching animals seriously makes me think of washing my hands 50 million times that day. I do make allowances for certain animals, but I still fill the need to wash my hands like crazy. I am very annoyed when people compare having animals to the likeness of having a child. I have heard several people say that their dog shares as much responsibility as having a child. I would like for them to come and tell me that after they give birth and raise their child.

5: I love food. If I gave into temptation, I would weigh well over 200 pounds. Lucky for me I crave healthy foods, such as fruits and veggies. I love to try different types of foods, the weirder the better. I would pretty much try anything; leave out weird meats. My favorite thing to do is to go to Big River in Corvallis and order the craziest thing on the menu. My only problem is that then I love it and they never offer it again.

6: I love blogging, but more importantly I love to read other people's blogs. I feel connected to people that I have never even met in person because of experiences that we have shared. I also find lots of healing being able to share my experiences with others and give them words of encouragement as they go through lifes little moments. I am thankful for the chance to get in touch with those that I lost contact with after high school. I also find it encouraging to know that I am not the only one that has weird thoughts as a first time mother. I recently read a high school friend's blog and her list of what she didn't know before motherhood was so perfect.

I tag...Kandis, Sheryl, Snow, Kelleigh (she probably won't have time), and Amber Grover.
