Link Love

I've been tagged for the very first time (to the best of my knowledge). And it comes from Kailani at An Island Life.

INSTRUCTIONS: Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot, like so.

Mom of 2 and Wife of 1
Holly’s Corner
An Island Life
Whee! All The Way Home

Next select five people to tag. I've never done this before, so of course I have a fear that whoever I tag will say, "Damn that woman! Can't I just ban her from my blog forever?" That said, I'm going to do it anyway, tagging Melanie in Orygun, The Middling Monettes, Sarah and the Goon Squad, This Eclectic Life, and A Day in the Life. Might as well tick off some funny people, right?

What were you doing 10 years ago?

Of course I wouldn't ban you from my blog. I love this sort of thing. It may take me a little while (or not), but I'm flattered that you chose me to tag. I'll get on it soon!

The Owners said...

OMG!!! Your five bad habits are mine too. Seriously, I'm bad.

We sold our camper last summer and I miss it terribly. When the kids are older, we are definitely getting another one.

And you're not boring, just a little obsessed with Bruce, that's all :)(hee hee)

I completed the meme and I still have time to watch a 10:00 o'clock show, not too shabby.

Thanks for playing along! You're answers were great!

What are 'Dots'? Are those the button candy that's stuck on paper?

Using TV as a babysitter? ROFL! You're definitely an honest person! I'm not sure I would be brave enough to admit that! LOL!

And I didn't even know people still used tape recorders!

BTW, I'm not sure if you can get Hurricane Popcorn in the mainland but if you email me your mailing address, I'll send you some. Don't worry, I'm not a stalker. ;-)
