8 Things meme

Chrissy tagged me for this meme. Here are the rules:

Each player lists eight facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags eight people and posts their names, then goes over to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they have been tagged and asking them to go read your blog.

1. I have naturally blonde hair and green(ish) eyes. My hair used to be such a wonderful light blonde color that people thought that I dyed it. It has, of course, lost it's brilliance with age and pregnancy. But it sure was fun while it lasted. :-)

2. I found out that I had skin cancer (melanoma) right before my 30th birthday. Always wear sunscreen and cover up in the sun, ESPECIALLY if you are a natural blonde with light eyes and freckles. (That's it for the public service announcements, I promise!)

3. I also found out that I have Hashimoto's disease a few months before my 30th birthday. If this is what 30 means, I can't wait to see what 40 has in store for me! LOL!!

4. I am recovering from a nasty Pepsi addiction. I gave it up for Lent this year, and it has been a struggle to stay away. But let's hear it for my new addiction: iced tea with no sugar.

5. I am a secret "metal head". (Just in case I lost anyone, I love music that falls into the category of rock, metal, etc. None of the nordic death metal or anything like that. Just the fun rocking stuff.) Shocked?? Me too. I figured that I would grow out of it, but my musical taste has stayed pretty much the same ever since I was able to pick my own music.

6. I met my husband when I was 14 years old. We dated for a bit after I turned 15 and then broke up. For eight years. It's a long story, maybe I'll tell it later.

7. I always thought that I was a city girl, but the older that I get the more that I understand the country life. I want land so that I can grow more veggies.

8. I've never had a professional manicure, but that's going to change soon.

Well, there you go. Hope you all still like me! I know that most people have already done this, so I tag whoever would like to do this and hasn't done it yet.

Have a great weekend and a Happy Father's Day!

Thanks for playing! I recently gave up a nasty Coke addiction and boy has it been hard! I know I shouldn't drink so much Coke, so now I just don't buy it...

Congratulations on kicking the Pepsi. I still have hope for me with the coca-cola. I too drink a lot of iced and hot tea and am trying to get more water into my daily routing. I'm sorry about the medical problems you've had since hitting 30. I worry about the skin cancer because I too have really like skin, blonde hair (that when I was young, people used to bet on weather I dyed it or not) and when I was younger I wasn't as careful in the sun as I should have been.
Have fun with the manicure. I've had a few, but my big thing that I love is pedicures. In fact, my husband said the other day that it looked like it was time for me to get another one, lol
I hear you on the music. I love all the 80's hair bands, and my kids look at me like I'm lost cause when they hear some of it.

Have a great Fathers day too!

I hope you have a Wonderful Father's Day too with your dh and kids. I don't mind a bit you adding my blog to your sidebar. I hope you don't mind that I added yours ;-)

I am a closet metal fan too! Scorpions were my favourite. Thank you for sharing your secret - I've always been a little embarrassed by mine *sheepish grin*!

kitkat said...

Oh I LOVE the Scorps!! Savage Amusement is my favorite disc (but I owned the cassette first), but I love them all! Hair Bands rule! Metal Heads, unite! :-)

And yes, I do embarass myself. Do I dare say what concert DH and I are going to later this summer?? Nah, I'll save it for later.

kitkat said...

Hi Moonstar!! :-) I am so happy to "see" you.

MoonStar said...

OH MY!!! I saw the scorps in 88 @ Monsters of Rock with my bf. LOL! Too cool. I love them! :) Oh, & btw, I had big Bon Jovi hair. LOL!!
