I've been Tagged!
Sara of Stinky Pete fame and new to the blogging world has tagged me to share 7 random facts about myself! The rules are as follows:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs. here goes!

1. I am going to fulfill a lifelong dream next week by travelling to India for a wedding! I have always been fascinated by India, it's culture, food, literature and more. A friend of ours called last Christmas to let us know his marriage had been successfully arranged and we would be invited to the wedding! Pack the bags...we're going!

2. I love purple! not red, rosey purple but deep rich indigo violet in crayola speak

3. hubby and I lived in Poland when we were first married and as a result we now speak "Polinglish" when we don't want the kids to know what we are talking about!

4. for some unknown reason I randomly spell words to myself - if I hear a word I might just start spelling it to myself over and over...weird huh?

5. I played trumpet for 4 years as a kid - even though I coveted the great grandfather had played in Sousa's band during WWI and I felt family obligation to continue the tradition

6. I love asian food especially Vietnamese

7. I went to 5 different elementary schools, 2 schools from 7-12th grades and 2 different colleges!

I am going to tag....

Joni, Judy (maybe it will get her blogging again) Mary, Erin, Sarah, Anj,

My sister just emailed me this little story and I wanted to share with all of you...

There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
Well,' she said, 'I think I'll braid my hair today?' So she did and she had a wonderful day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. 'H-M-M,' she said, 'I think I'll part my hair down the middle today?' So she did and she had a grand day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. 'Well,' she said, 'today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail.' So she did and she had a fun, fun day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head. 'YEA!' she exclaimed, 'I don't have to fix my hair today!'
Attitude is everything.

Be kinder than necessary,
for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
Live simply, Love generously,Care deeply,Speak kindly.......
Leave the rest to God
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...

It's about learning to dance in the rain
