Tagged! & Weird or Random Facts

I (we) was tagged by Karen at Our Journey to Kaelie, Kim at Ruby is Coming and technically OziMom tagged DH, Ford.... We shall see if he tells us his seven weird or random facts about himself...... I will leave that to you to make him feel obligated....

Here's the requested seven weird or random thoughts about me!
1. Since Susan mentioned pillows, I will let you know that I sleep with my baby pillow. Yep, my Mom tried throwing it away but I kept it to this very day! I even have it on our travels right now - just seems more like home when the pillow is with me!

2. Every morning when I am getting ready for work, I feed Salty Dog his treat of baby carrots and I eat a few myself.

3. I am very awkward around people, unlike my very friendly and outgoing hubby!

4. I have difficulty throwing away magazines as I keep thinking I need to read it or there is something worth saving... so they pile up around the house.

5. I can't carry a tune or sing on key at all. I would be very embarrassed if anyone overheard me singing and humming lullabies to AA. DH is tasked with teaching her to sing on key along with her sister, Leaa, who is a pro!.

6. I hate shoes. I get blisters all the time. I rather go barefoot or wear open toed sandals. My second toe (next to my big toe) is longer than all my other toes.

7. I don't care for curry, olives or anchovies, or peanuts in Chinese food.
That's all I can admit to right now!!

The bloggers I am tagging, if they haven't already done this are the following:
1. Journey to Our Little One - Baseballs and Ballerinas
2. Dita at Dita's Darlings
3. JBOO and daughter Maddy - Check out her progress at Boo Adventures
4. Kate with daughter Lia at Livin' La Vida Lia
5. Melissa at The Maine Event on Little Sebago Lake (also known as Auntie M; check out her pics of AA!)
6. Tonya and William at Our Journey to Sophia
7. Lisa, half of the "Half Gaelic, Half Garlic" over at The Long Road to China with Sarah and Nicolas

Didn't we do this a couple of years ago? Daniella did it back in January 2008 and Kristy at Franceskas Journey has her list. It seems to be going around including dozens of blogs I have just visited... Vivian at Life with Kerri, Kris at Tell Her This did her list a few weeks ago (check out her FABulous news) and Colleen at The Crazy Eight (check out her favorites list too) have completed their lists.

If you haven't done this list, please post and leave us a comment here and we will visit!!

Nice to know I am not the only quirky one!

OH MY #6 said...

Love, getting to know you better Ally! Good thing you live in the south with this shoe thing!

Good Answers! Happy Halloween, I hope you all have a wonderful time tonight :)

Dita said...

Loved your list, Aly. The baby pillow thing is so funny. That Ford, he is one special guy sharing you with your pillow!!! I am chuckling again just thinking of this (did it go with you on your honeymoon??) The true test of love is when AA wants to drag it around the house with her and you let her!
So, you tagged me...well, I'm freaked out because I don't know if I am tech savvy enough to figure out how to put the hyperlinks to the sites and the little taggy list thingy on my blog but come hell or high water, I'm gonna try!
Yep, I've got quite a few quirky things about me!
Happy Halloween!!!!

Numbers 3 and 5 apply around here as well... I tend to be awkward when live and in person, plus I can't carry a tune to save my life.

Qiuqiu's parents said...

Oh, my, I also can't carry a tune to save my life...I mean, it's worse than that. It hurts my own ears to hear myself! I'm horriffic. When I need to sing to QQ to calm her down, it's appalling. I'm amazed that sometimes it actually works...she doesn't seem to notice the caterwalling!

Kristy said...

I am the same way with magazines, it drives me crazy!!!

Daniella said...

love your list! Your missing out on anchovies. Happy Halloween.

Nina said...

I'm sure that your lullabies are the most beautiful music in the world to AA's ears!

And trust me, I can totally relate to that one :)

Greetings from China! In answer to your question, I think only one other family out of the eight in our group has a blog. I'll get the link and post it.

OziMum said...

My second toe is bigger too!!! I think it's a sign of genius?!!! And like you I prefer bare foot (at home)! Although I love shoes... can you see my dilemma?!!
