Seven Things

Currently going around the educational blog circles is a meme called "Seven Things". I was tagged by Ann Oro. I'm going to share seven things I wouldn't normally blog about.

1. I have been married to my husband for over three years. We "reconnected" on Jdate. He was roommates with a guy whose family is really good friends with my family. In fact, he had been to my house 2 times prior to us "reconnecting". My husband, Dan likes to say I stalked him, but I didn't!

2. For our wedding we made our own chuppah. Well, actually we didn't make our own. We sent squares to our wedding party and to close family and friends. A neighbor who quilts, quilted our chuppah for us. It was very meaningful to be married under something that our friends and family were part of.

3. I pay the bills for our household.

I have a beagle/basset mix that we adopted from a shelter. She has separation anxiety and is on doggy Prozac.

5. I love to cross stitch. I taught myself how to cross stitch when I was a senior in college. I was student teaching and not taking that many classes. I was bored. When my 4 year old niece was born I made her a crib quilt.

6. Over a year ago I broke my leg and had a rod put in it. I then got viral meningitis; most likely from a mosquito bite. (Although, now looking back I had many symptoms of West Nile Virus so it is possible I was misdiagnosed.)

7. My husband has never been to Disney World. I would like to take him to Disney sometime soon. Many people told me you should go to Disney before you have kids for a different experience.

Now I have to tag 7 people. I am not really good with the tagging part. I am going to tag 7 people who I would like to find more about.
7 People I am tagging:
Carol Broos
Judi Epcke
Ann Truger
Charlene Chausis
Lucy Gray
Vinnie Vrotny
Scott Meech

It's fun to read these posts. Those are two beautiful items: the chuppah and the crib quilt. I haven't done anything as large; although I did make a quilt (once) for my mom.

Disney is fun before you have children. I'd definitely recommend it.

Thanks for playing along!

Thanks so much for tagging me, I loved your post, I learned "seven" things I didn't know about you.

Your chuppah is absolutely gorgeous. What a wonderful gift and heirloom for you. Yes, being a former Disney Castmember I agree you should take a trip without kids to play at adult speed first, because you will slow way down with little ones. Thanks for sharing.

Very cool idea! Much better than the 25 things currently circulating around Facebook. Especially since our cognitive abilities only allot Seven Plus or Minus Two for processing and memory (Miller, 1956).

Anywho, definitely go to Disney before the kids come along. There is so much to do for adults! My wife and I honeymooned there and now we can't wait to take the kids!
