OK, so I got this almost a week a go, but this week has been really busy.  So finally getting to it...yeah it's Friday!  I was tagged by my beautiful cousin Rachael.

Allrighty: 6 random things about me.

1.  I find myself easily distracted.  I love scrapbooking, sewing, ballroom dancing, yoga and playing the piano, but hardly ever get time to do them because I'm always focused on the messy house, escaping my to do list by checking my email or whatever.  When I was working for the state I'd get bored with my job quickly and have to move on to something else once I got "competent enough".  

2.  I love being home with my kids.  I like doing the daycare, but I don't feel as good at it as I thought I would.  There's still so many ways I want to improve, but I love being able to hug and cuddle my kids whenever I want to.

3.  I LOVE chocolate, peanut butter and potatoes.  Not together of course...but if you put a bag of peanut butter M & Ms in front of me, or french fries I will eat them, not until I'm full, but until I'm literally sick.  I have a hard time "just saying no".

4.  I am a people pleaser and I am very wordy.  I didn't make the connection between the two until this summer when my sister in law did this personality thing at our family reunion.  I tend to give long explanations for my decisions or opinions so as to "cover all the bases" I think.  I don't want to offend anyone, or have them think I'm not open minded or whatever.  I'm pretty concerned about what people think about me.

5.  Although lately I feel like I beat myself up alot, I'm pretty happy with who I am mostly.  I love the fact that I'm book smart, can write well and can sight read almost anything on the piano.  I love that I try to be open minded.  I love my kids and my husband and I love my extended family.  I feel really lucky and blessed by my Heavenly Father.

6.  I am a rule follower.  Like this tag for instance.  It said to tag 6 people, so I did.  I spend way too much energy sometimes on this and then end up at the end just doing whatever.  Like my classes this summer.  Man the first assignments I did were perfect, but when it got to the end of the semester and I had half the tests and 3 huge assignments to complete all the rules went out the window.  Perfectionism is another word for it.  I really need to start FLYing again...that's right up my ally.

So I'm going to tag: Lara, Kristy, Rachael, Nonie, Kyle and Jenny.

Here are the rules:

1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write 6 random things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let the person know you tagged them on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when you've posted.
