7 Random Things Meme

I was tagged by Regina to do this 7 Random or Weird Things Meme.

I did this meme a while ago here and here, but I decided to play along again.

Here are the rules:
A). Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog
B). Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself
C). Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs
D). Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here's my 7 random things:
1. When I was a child I thought it was a neat little trick that I could put my entire fist into my mouth.
2. I had braces for 3 years. During that time I decided that I would surely be an orthodontist when I grew up.
3. I went bungee jumping when I was a teenager.
4. I loved high school.
5. Before I got pregnant with Hailey I wore a size 2 or a 4. My "fat" jeans? They were a size 6.
6. I love to eat brown sugar. Usually I add lots of it to my oatmeal (the oatmeal that comes with brown sugar already in it). But I've also been known to eat just plain brown sugar. Yes- all by itself. (Hmmmm, I wonder if I'll ever be able to get into my old "fat" jeans??)
7. When I was pregnant I had terrible morning all day sickness. At that time I was using Cotton Blossom body wash from Bath & Body Works. I can no longer use that soap because to this very day it makes me gag.

I have decided that I will not be tagging anyone for this meme. I think pretty much everyone has done it at one time or another anyways. But, if you haven't and you want to play along- please do so and then let me know you did so I can check it out.

Brown sugar? I've never heard of anyone that eats brown sugar. I like raw potatoes. Fun answers! See ya. said...

Hey that was fun!! Or your answers made it fun!! Size 6 fat jeans! I haven't been able to wear that size since I was 6!!! Love and Hug, Grams

Wow! I have a ton of comments for this!
1. WOuld love to see that- pictures??
2. I didn't have braces, but my parents still tell my brothers (who had braces) that their mouth is worth lots of money....maybe I should have been an orthodontist.
3. bungee jumping?? AHHHH! I am screaming in terror just thinking of it!
4.I did not love high school. Some of it was good and some of it was down right bad.
5. A size 2 or 4? Really....I don't think I can wear those in my dreams!
6. brown I know what to send you for Christmas!
7. Morning sickness stinks! I had it terrible with BOTH pregnancies - they put me on meds for it the second time. I have thrown out many recipes that I will never eat again. And, don't get me started on bacon...oh I can feel the gagging coming now!

I'm glad you did this meme, because I of course missed it the first thousand times you did it!! Oh, Man!! I remeber those terrible sick days! I felt so bad for you (and stuck up for you!) but also really disliked you at the same time (You know why!! ah the good old days!). But the outcome (Hailey) is awesome!!

Isn't it funny how we associate smells with good or bad things?

I had braces too.

You wore a size 2 or a 4 and your "fat" jeans were a size 6??

Umm yea, those don't qualify as FAT JEANS even! :)

I'm with you on #5, #6 and #7
I was in a 2 and 4 and some 6's before getting PG. I found myself needing 6's after I got married, guess i was eating better or something.. but 6 months after getting Married I got PG with Princess. It took me 5 years to get back into the size 6.. but in that time I also had another baby Mr Man.. It took me 18 months after having him to get back down to my normal Pre baby weight, we are talking PRE Princess weight and I could wear a size 6 again. ONLY 2 weeks later I found out I was PG with Sweet Pea and I haven't seen anything smaller then a size 10 sinces :( but I also had sweet pea was PG with Alyssa for 3 months and then got PG with Little Man and gained more weight with him then I did with any of them. I need to lose 25 pounds to be back to the weight I was went I wore the size 6.
I love love love brown surger on my oatmeal.
and with each and every one of my PG i had all day morning sickness that lasted 9 months To this day I can not use the shampoo I used when PG with Princess(she will be 12 in January) or it makes me gag.

Whoa! You remind me..I used to like digging on brown sugar and looking for the mounds that got stuck due to moisture..I'd munch on that. I loved it.

Nice to know more about you. :D
