Tiggity tagged...***EDITED***




Alright, alright already....
I was tagged by 5 people, so I think that means I should do it...a sign from the Lord.
I have a done a few of these tagging things before, so if you are new to the group- go head on over here and here and read some of my oldies. Oldies, but goodies.

7 interesting things about myself....I make no promises as to how interesting this will be....

1. Sometimes I feel like God made dirt and dirt don't hurt. Does it really hurt anyone if my child crawls on the floor at Starbucks? Is he really going to contract a disease from it? Is it really that bad if he eats a piece of rice cake that fell on the floor for more than 5 second rule?? God made dirt and dirt don't hurt. I am suddenly realzing that this may sounds like I am a dirty, neglegtful mama, but I just try not to sweat the small stuff.



2. I am lactose intolerant. No milk, cheese, yogurt, butter or ice cream for this girl. I am also alergic to wheat. No bread, cake, pastries, crackers or bagels for this girl. (coincidentaly, Malak is alergic to milk, soy and apples...it's in his blood to be alergic to everything like his mama) :)



3.I HATE hair that is not connected to the body. Uuuugh.



4. My current favorite restaurants are: Spicy Pickle and I order the Double Dilly-Yo with a Greek salad and the Garden State sandwhich, I also love Pei Wei and I order this and this.

5. I am a lover of tatoo sleeves and mohawks. Will you judge me if I think he is super hot??
6. I had this blog before I started our adoption blog. (warning: it is full of random boring stuff and possibly uncensored...I don't rememeber)

7. I was 12 when I had my first kiss. I was in South Lake Tahoe and it was a boy named Billy. We were out walking around outside and he asked if he could hold my hand and I of course, said yes. Then he asked if he could kiss me and I of course, said yes and he did. Then a frog hopped right onto my shoe so we chased it around for a long time until we caught it and played with it. I know, you guys are jealous that your first kiss wasn't as romantic as mine. :)
8. (yeah, just one more) I am embarassed to admit that I am reading the vampire books. I have been feeling the peer pressure and have been making fun of friends for reading them...and now I LOVE THEM! I am only on the second one, but I am dying to get the third. Oh Edward, why am I so in love with you??
10. Ok, I thought of one more that is pretty important. :) I love the show The Hills. Those people intrigue me! I have noticed on my google analytics that I have a lot of readers in the LA/Hollywood area and I secretly hope that Lauren is reading my blog....Lauren, if you're out there, just say it! We can be friends!

I always wonder after I do these tag things, if people will like me more or like me less after they know these wierd things about me. Hmmmm. Perhaps I don't want to know. :)

And I shall tag some of my non-adoption friends as well as some adopt-ers...Jess, Julia, Jen, Sarah, Gina, Jesi, and Shadley.

Haha, I am reading the Twilight books! Aren't they addictive? I am almost halfway through the third one. My hubby teases me, but I am obsessed! :) I even blogged about them. You will have to look. ;)
So who did you tag? Are you supposed to put their names and a link to their blogs at the bottom of your post? That was neat...I want to see what the people you tagged said too. (If you are having a hard time deciding, I dont mind if you tag me!)
PS-How "coincidental" that you and Malak both have those allergies! :)

Christie said...

HA! I knew you'd read Twilight. They're such crap, but you just can't get enough. Enjoy, mi amiga. And I couldn't walk either day this week anyway, so next week it is!

TNHaus5 said...

Tara, I love the Twilight series, I am so excited for the movie coming out next month!!! I read all the books and it only took me a day to finish each one, I could not put them down!!! And your right dirt does not hurt, I think it is better to have a more laid back momma than a paranoid one!!
I really enjoy reading your blogg, I'm not a big commenter (usually)

The Albertsons said...

I would vote for you for president! Kids playing in the dirt. It's a right people. We need more mamas who aren't so worried! hooray!

SEG said...

thanks for the tag lady!!! i think your first kiss story is super cute. though my daughters better be older than 12 or i might lock them up :)

and to answer your question...i like you more!

Gina said...

Ummm, why did I not know about the Spicy Pickle??? I'm pretty sure I'm going there to eat soon...like tomorrow if not sooner. It sounds delish, and it must be good because I'm pretty sure you have good taste. I'm glad you decided to like me MORE after reading my 7 random things (yeah, thanks for tagging me even though I just came up with 9 things about myself...hopefully I'll come up with something good this time). I like you more, not less, especially since you provided me with another eating adventure to try out...

Erica said...

I love you more because you love Pei Wei and we order the same things. Sometimes I get adventurous and order the Korean. I don't read vampire books though. ;)

Blog Shmog said...

I think I like you more. :)

Trendy Mindy said...

I am obsessed with Travis Barker - so sad they took that show off!! Glad he is ok after the plane crash.

I have been following you guys for awhile - we are adopting from ET too!! Mindy

Ted and Lori said...

The angriest I have been as a parent came a few months ago in Central Oregon when an evil smoking woman chided me for letting Abe crawl around outside on the brick courtyard of the restaurant where we were eating. I am unashamed (okay, maybe a little ashamed) that I let the f-word fly as I was recounting the story to Ted's brother. I was that mad. Yes, God made dirt, and dirt don't hurt.

Sarah and Tim said...

Um, of course we love you more after reading these things. Haha... seriously, I LOVE tatt sleeves too and think T Barker is a hottie as well.

Jen said...

Awesome. I 'm going to assume it's not me.:)

Erin and Keith Sager said...

Great Tag! I admit as well I am a huge Hills fan, what a lfe they lead......... thanks for sharing, to bad you don't live in Portland any more or we could watch it together.....

Julia said...

I did mine! :) I don't think they are as interesting as yours, but oh well!
hey, I saw you said something about your "google analytics"...is that something you subscribe to, or where do you find that? I have always wondered if there was a way to tell who was reading my blog!
Oh, and you are not wierd about the tattoo thing! I think Pharrell Williams (from N-E-R-D) is superhot, and he has tons-o-tats! :)

The Quinn Girls said...

I just went to check out your old blog and there were pics of my girls and you trying to help us raise $$$ to bring K home. I had no idea and I'm sure there are many others out there who spread the word without me having a clue. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This whole process has been so overwhelming for me. It's almost a year later and I'm still trying to process all that has happened to us over the past year +. We have been blessed. Thanks again. You rock!

LC said...

LC + Tara = friends-4-eva!

jen said...

I love Pei Wei and I'm sorry to hear about the lactose intolerance because Haagen Daz chocolate peanut butter ice cream is something very special.

Stacie said...

Oh Edward is so dazzling isn't he? :) I'm such a dork I'm now reading a partial draft of midnight sun online - it's Twilight told from Edward's point of view and it only makes you love him more.
And, I'm with you on #1! Why sweat the small stuff - they're going to eat dirt no matter what.

cathy said...

Stumbled across your blog because of adoption. I have to say you seem honest and way cooler than me--especially regarding the tattoos.

Jennifer said...

i completely agree with you on dirt and the tats! i don't care for travis barker, but i have a crush on tommy lee. i heart men with tatto sleeves and rings in their lips. fo' sho!
