Ticks, Quirks and Threes about Mari




We had a fun weekend with a girl scout campfire gathering Friday night, a hike in the cooling last days of summer at Ringwood State Park, Saturday and a Rock the Beach party for adults at our lake on Saturday night. Thus the reason for the above song! It was among the songs played this weekend and it fit what we were doin after our hike. I love it and Brads Voice!! Oh the scenarios it puts into my mind…

Lol Now for the Meme's...I might prove very boring after this. Awhile ago I was tagged by Mechele Armstrong with a Quirks Meme and Melany Logen with a Three’s about me. I put them aside because of Winning Bess Promotions. So today I am putting them up together. And on My Maureen blog, I posted a Husband Meme that Amy Ruttan did on Six Degrees Of Sexy last week.

I’m not tagging anyone because I am a slightly insecure person and it will be reinforced if they don’t do it *g* But feel free to do it and pass it on! Let me know if you do, so I can read it.
Celebrate the quirks and everyday things in your life they add up to a very exciting you!

QUIRKS
1) I collect quotes that resonate with me, be it from a famous person, a t-shirt or bumper sticker.
2) I have hundreds of projects started… knitting, photo albums, needlepoint, crossword puzzles… someday I might get around to finishing some.
3) I hate to throw things away… like the clutter fairy says whatever you throw out today you will need tomorrow.
4) Like quotes I like to collect useless bits of information… why I love the real facts found inside lids on Snapple bottles…todays…Storm clouds hold about 6 trillion raindrops…many of which will be falling on us over the next 4 days. There be a Nor’easter coming in.
5) My favorite drink (besides beer) is Dr Pepper and Captain Morgan… who said I wasn’t into threesomes *g*
6) I make mosaics out of M&M;s and Skittles before I eat them. it really really adds up the procrastination minutes!

Great meme, and I read Mo's Hubby Meme on her blog. I couldn't post because I am not a member of 360.

Very cute.

And I'm taking the relax advice. LOL!

Thanks Amy, yeah someday I will have to make the leap to blogger for my personal blog, too. Glad you enjoyed the Memes.

glad to hear you are relaxing! We all sounded like a bunch of nagging mother hens, but it was from the heart!
