All you NEVER wanted to know.

Six Things You NEVER Wanted to Know About Me. (I was tagged by Hope4Grace)
1. I wore boots most of my high school years. Jeans and boots. I don't know why. They were really comfortable. See the picture below...I was 17, and I'm wearing my boots.




2. I started a club when I was in fourth grade. We were the B.B.A.D.'s, which stood for Boy Busters Against Drugs. It was made up of four or five girls. We even had meetings...about what, I don't remember, and I don't think we accomplished anything. We didn't bust any boys or get anyone off drugs. I didn't even know anyone who did drugs at that point but it was just a popular thing to do at the time since McGruff visited my school. I was such a dork.


3. I used to be scared of elevators. The only exception to this was glass elevators. Those I could handle. Weird, huh?


4. I have a favorite photo of my boys that I made in to a charm on my keychain. I took this picture when Donny was 5 years old and Remy was around six months old. Remy was pretty bald for a long time. Donny has a light saber faced painted on his cheek from a party. I just love this picture.




5. Starting around two years old, I had an imaginary friend named Morgurt. Eventually Morgurt was joined by Sandy, a second imaginary friend. I was very imaginative...and I lived in the country without many playmates.


However, when Donny was little, he came up with some imaginary friends also...Robot and Urse Guy. They were naughty and told him he could do things that I told him he could NOT. Funny how that happens, huh?! Payback, I guess, for all I did to my mom.

6. I rode horses as a child...at camp and at home on our ranch. I also rode my bike all over our ranch. And, I pretended my bike WAS a horse. Always. I loved doing that.



Okay, I'm not tagging anyone specifically, but if you want to grab this and do it, feel free!

This was so fun to read. I used to wear boots in HS too. But they were the ankle ones. Yikes.

Angela said...

I think every adolescent girl HAS to start a club at some point! Yours was just so noble! :)

Jennifer said...

I like the jeans and boots look... I think it looks pretty darn cool... I would wear that look now. :) I wouldn't wear what I wore at that age now... although I can't totally remember what it was I was wearing... make any sense?? probably not... okay moving right along...

I love the BBAD group. too cute. I guess it was good that you were really inspired and impressed about say NO to drugs! :) Never a bad thing.

I love LOVE love the picture of Donny & Remy... very cute!! Can you believe they have gone from that picture to how big they are today... in like a flash?? at least for me my kids are growing over night and went from newborns to 3 & 5 yr olds in a blink. (even though they aren't quite 5 & 3 yet)

When I was little I used to ride my bike quite a bit, but not as much as my son does now... he is pretty much on his bike all day long... amazing.

This was a cool meme. :) thanks for sharing.

You could pick up the jeans and boots habit again and start a trend!

Krystyn said...

Fun stuff! Getting to know you!

Jen said...

Your boys are just to cute. I see why you made the key chain.

Angie's Spot said...

Love the pic of the boys! And I pretended my bike was a horse too! Of course, I could only ride horses once a year for a week in the summer at camp.

Ab said...

I'm so envious that you actually HAVE a Whole Foods near you! I just have to steal and adapt recipes from their website!

Thanks for stopping by! I also went through a MAJOR jeans and boots phase...and I didn't even grow up on a ranch...

#5 could also be considered bipolar disorder. It just depends on what your immaginary friends told you. (I'm playin' of course)

Jules said...

Awww...... your little guys are so cute. Love the light saber!

Mom2FiveBratz said...

Ive always wore ropers, but have since turned to combat boots, because they are more comfortable.

Kat said...

Didn't you do a post of all the things you are scared of? I don't recall elevators being on that list. Escalators are much more frightening.

You can add boots to my list of things I've never worn...

That's a cute pic for a keychain.

Insane Mama said...

I'm digging your imaginary friend's name. Morgurt, I had one named swinkknots or something, maybe they were plural.

Mama Dawg said...

I like that picture, too! So cute and so....boy!

Valarie said...

Aww look at Remy and his little bald head! The smile on Donny's face could melt a million hearts. They are so cute :)

Shannon said...

That is a cute pic of your boys! My oldest girl was bald for the longest time, too!

Z's Mom said...

I love your list....you have me laughing so hard....at work...in front of everyone!

I love the club you had....HILARIOUS! My friends and I started one too....but for the life of me I can't remember the name....it probably had the word "bitch" in it....or should have anyway....

Your boys are ADORABLE!!!

├╝berburber said...

even as a young, boot-and-jeans-wearing, club-for-a-cause-forming future blogger, you were tangling those texas words!!!

Munchkins and Music said...

I have some boots too. I LOVE them!

Cristin said...

I've never put cowboy boots on my feet EVER... they're not real big in New England... will you still be my friend??

And I LOVE bald babies!! Mine were hairy... those little bald heads are so soft... I love to pet and snuzzle them....

Cristin said...

Hey I just noticed I'm a top commenter!!

Cristin said...

I gotta make sure my name stays up there....

Tranny Head said...

Ok, that cracks me up about McGruff. He never came to my school - I guess I'm the loser.

*hangs head in shame*

Debbie said...

Morgurt...Bahahahahahahahahha...love it!

Karen said...

I love the picture of your boys! They look so angelic!!!

Hope4Grace said...

We're soulmates, as I too had an imaginary friend.....Charlotta.... she was always in sooooo much trouble!

Thanks for being such a sport!
