Tag, I'm it!

Ok, so Julee tagged me, so now I have to reveal 7 things about myself. This should be fun...

1. I have terrible food allergies, and the worst is to eggs. NO baked goods for me! :POUT:

2. I have a secret desire to be on American Idol. Now, I am not the best singer, nor am I a great performer, but I love to be on stage. I wanted to be a Broadway star growing up. I was a vocal music major in college tho!

3. I am a hair stylist by trade. You'd never know it by looking at me b/c I'm a working mom and since I don't work in the industry any more, I don't have time or resources to keep up with all the trends. But I still love it all the same.

4. My husband and I have been best friends since we were 12. We met in 8th grade when our choir director thought we should sing a duet at the talent show. So we sang "The Rose" by Bette Midler. I wore the most fabulous dress...it was Teal with gold buttons down the middle, and the skirt had 2 ruffles...a la Kelli Kapowski on Saved by the Bell. LOL

5. I am a birth mom, and proud of it! 8 years ago this July I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Julianna Joy. Her parents were there, and her mom was in the delivery room with me. We have an open adoption so she knows who I am and we get to see her and stuff. I have a real passion because of this for young mothers who have such difficult options but I wish I could educate more people about adoption. It's such a wonderful gift for everyone involved!

6. I am very very short. Last time I measured, I was 4' 11" and 3/4. I usually round up to 5'... but let me tell ya...it is sooo hard to find clothes! ACK!

7. Josh does most of the cooking at our house. I just can't get the hang of it! If it were up to me, it would be Stouffer's Lasagna, frozen pizza, and Mac & Cheese!

Ok, so now I have to tag 7 more people to do this...let's see if I know 7 people who blog?

Kendra, Kristin, Cindy, Dina, and that's really it I think! Tag, girls!

Allergic to eggs - tragic. I'm such a pastry nut. I'm deathly allergic to seafood. I ended up in the emergency room the first time I tried Calamari...and I didn't even swallow any of it! So neat that you were able to have an open adoption! Loved reading all your fun facts. I'm not much of a cook either, but I do make a mean Campbell's soup! LOL

Shannon just checked out your blog. I love all you share on SCS, and was so excited to visit your blog. Was blown away by you having the courage to say you are a birth mom. You Rock. I am too, I have a B daughter who is 30. We have been in reunion for 7 years and had our first face to face this year. Talk about a WOW!!! I am so happy about the changes in adoption over the years. And I am so thrilled there are women out there like you that can speak it, work with it, and help to make the changes that are needed with the whole issue. Thanks again for all you do.
