Playing along...

My sister was tagged twice this week... I am going to play along. I don't know enough bloggers to play by the rules, so this is just for fun.

Six word Memoir-

I'm blessed beyond measure, times two.

Now for 7 interesting facts:
1. I have been to Hawaii, but never to the beaches. I was able to go visit a good friend that lived there when I was in the 5th grade. I guess that the beach was old news to her, so she didn't want to go. Bummer!
2. I was born with an extra bone in both of my pinkies. This is a registered "birth defect" and was discovered when I had to have both hands x-rayed after a very tragic twirly bar accident.
3. My first car was a 1978 red Honda Civic. My grandpa and I (more he than we) installed a sunroof... and amazingly it never leaked.
4. This one is almost unbelievable, but it is true. My sister-in-law and I ran a half marathon a number of years ago. We came in last, as we got lost along the way. We were so far behind the pack that the race organizers started to take down the cones and directions ahead of us. So really we ran a half marathon plus one mile. :) I would love to be able to do this again someday... I can dream, right?
5. I was awarded the Senior Excellence Award for Home Economics my senior year in high school... this one is almost as unbelievable as number 4.
6. I wanted to name my first dog "Tanya"... I am so glad that my Mom insisted on Muffin.
7. I had to go through speech therapy as a little girl. I had a lisp... in fact one of my mom says that one our neighbors thought my name was Bess rather than Beth for the longest time.
So there you have it... more than you probably ever wanted to know about me.

Thanks for playing along. Those are some great facts, Bess! And I'm glad you didn't name your dog Tonya! Maybe you could post a picture of your pinky fingers...they always make me smile, especially when I watch you type.

Jill said...

I will check out your fingers next time I see you. That's something to look forward too ;o)

Maybe you and Jamie should switch and write 7 facts about eachother. Now that would be fun to read!
