a TAG response for julie

this post is open for everyone to read but is particularlly for our friend julie (who currently lives in Oregon) who recently sent me a blog tag. normally, i would honestly just ignore something like this, but i didn't want to be the one of the three people that she tagged that didn't do it and julie is a faithful reader of our blog (sometimes i feel like the only reader! thanks julie for the feedback) so i wanted to return the favor to her.

basically a tag is where the tagger answers specific questions and then tags other bloggers to do the same. here is my attempt at julie's questions:

3 joys:
  • unexpected leg hugs from wilhelm clarke
  • family dinners with my parents, brother's family and my boys
  • a walk outside any fall day that it is comfortable to wear a sweatshirt and jeans
3 fears:
  • someone kidnapping my child
  • my husband or child dying prematurely
  • close spaces

3 goals:
  • find a place to "settle" for longer than one or two years
  • start my own biz in the next year or so, or go to baking school
  • raise a wonderfully, well-rounded child while still managing to be a supportive, fun-loving wife
3 obsessions (i think i have lots of these):
  • cleaning my house and making sure everything is in its place (slightly OCD)
  • decorating/project magazines and websites
  • baking the perfect treat (and trust me it has to be perfect or i develop a complex)
3 random surprises:
  • i've never dyed my hair
  • my dad and i have an ebay biz for antique and vintage goods (we are called repeated history, unfortunately i haven't listed anything all summer because of family drama, but plan on starting back up in the next week or so)
  • i was engaged for longer than i dated my husband
so there you have it. a few questions answered about me. i'm never really good at these because i always over analyze and try to get something exactly right that really has no right or wrong. anyway, i tried to complete this fast and without thinking too much.

YAY! I'm glad you didn't ignore your tag ;) You are welcome for the feedback- I crave comments and try to leave them fairly often. However, I know that someday my life will be a bit busier and I won't be as good about it :)
