Blog Game

I am feeling sooo much better this morning!

2012January 017

I am pretty excited about getting a workout in, eating some good food and a new Blogger find (hopefully it hasn’t been this way for months and I am just now noticing!)!

Since I started my blog the one thing I was never happy with was my inability to respond directly to comments.  Which has resulted in me just not commenting at all most of the time.

I was always jealous of people who added that feature and even tried to add it a couple of times to my own blog with no success.

I was elated this morning when I read a comment and noticed two little words right below the comment….”reply” and “delete”…GASP! 

What’s this?

Could it be?


You better believe, if you leave a comment from now on, you are going to get a response!

So, in said comment, that I joyfully responded to, I got tagged in a little blog game!   This couldn’t have come at a better time because, besides how many times I blew my nose yesterday, I don’t have much to talk about this morning!

Carli Alice, over at Grandma’s Guide to Life, tagged me, so here I go:

The rules:

  1. You must post the rules.
  2. Post 12 fun facts about yourself in the blog post.
  3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create 12 new questions for the people you tagged.
  4. Tag 12 people and link them on your post.
  5. Let them know you've tagged them.

12 Fun Facts About Myself:

  1. I ate toast with peanut butter, honey and bananas for the first time in my life this month.
  2. I love my animals (duh), but not necessarily your animals (I don’t want to pet sit), but I want YOU to love MY animals.
  3. I haven’t woken up to an alarm since last March.  It feels good.
  4. I don’t know how I drank coffee before we owned a Keurig.
  5. I am addicted to Facebook, Blogs and Pinterest.  I check them obsessively.
  6. I need to carry a lint roller in my purse.
  7. I need to take a shower. (This comment will embarrass Justin.)  Anytime I mention to someone that I haven’t showered or I need to shower, Justin later says….don’t tell people that…no one wants to hear that you haven’t taken a shower….it’s embarrassing.
  8. I don’t wear a bra more than I wear a bra (this will also embarrass Justin). Sometimes when we are leaving the house, I’ll say, Can you tell I’m not wearing a bra?  He’ll say, No, but you really should wear a bra when we leave the house.  This cracks me up!
  9. I need to not where my nightgown, with fleece pants under it, all day, again, like I have all week.
  10. I have never had a dog that sheds and it over takes me on some days.  Hair is EVERYWHERE!
  11. I am trying to decide between an iPhone or a Droid Razr. (Opinions welcome!)
  12. The worst part about having a dog that sheds is seeing someone walk out of my house with their backside covered in dog hair!

Carli Alice’s Questions:

Disclaimer: My answers aren’t that great and I blame that on my lingering head cold.

1. What would you dare to do if you knew you could not fail?  Compete in back to back competitions, become a fitness model, play the lottery, have kids.

2. Is money really the answer? Absolutely not.

3. What was your first care?  I’m thinking this should say “scare”, maybe.  I can’t think of anything right now.

4. Who is your favorite cartoon character? Don’t have one.

5. If your life was a book, what would it be called?  Sorry, can’t think of a good name right now (see above disclaimer)

6. What is the most times you have watched a movie?  Oh, I have no idea how many times I have watched Grease, but I’m sure it’s in the thousands!

7. What was your childhood nickname? Stace or Staush

8. What is the one thing you can not live without?  I am pretty confident I could live without any thing I currently own, but I prefer to not leave the house without my cellphone.

9. Would you rather be thin or rich? Neither, I want to be healthy and am happy having enough to live comfortably.  I think people that try to be thin or rich will never be satisfied.

10. How many songs have you heard with your name in it? One? I think?  The Ting Tings song, ‘What’s My Name’ (not even sure that is the name of the song and I’m too lazy to Google it right now)

11. What was your most memorable childhood birthday gift? Oh, I have received so many great gifts in my life….I wish I didn’t have a head cold and I could remember one!

12. What excites you about 2012?  Not being sick after this cold is over!


Sorry, this is getting out so late, I started working on this post at 5:30am!

Oh my goodness, I just realized, I am supposed to tag 12 other people and come up with 12 new questions!

I don’t have time to do that right now, so I guess this post is to be continued…………………………...


  1. How about the song "Stacy's Mom!" haha

    1. Oh yeah! I swear, my enthusiasm for this little blog game starting wearing out pretty quick. I didn't think it through before I started it this morning!

  2. bahaha this was a fun read with my afternoon tea : )

    I can guarantee there is not a single song out there with my name in it though ;P

    1. You are probably right about that, Nini! You have such a beautiful name!

  3. I hope you feel better! Silly/funny answers! Also, just had to comment to see the "reply" button you talked about--so exciting!

    1. Isn't is so exciting that we can finally "reply" to each other's comments!

  4. Oh crap! I tagged you in my post today without realizing you had already "played"! :)


    1. Oh no, Tenecia! I haven't finished the first one yet, don't tag me!!! LOL!
