Middle Name MeMe

My friend, Judy, just tagged me with a fun middle name meme.

Anyway, here are the rules: (If I tag you, you have to post the rules too!)
-You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. (I added the idea that you can come up with more than one word for each letter.)
-If you don't have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
-At the end of your post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to
tag...... Got it? Good!

Well, I'm always bad at things that require me to talk about myself - at least I think I am. But I'll give it a shot.

M - Married - Mom - Modest - I'm Married. Happily. We're approaching our five year anniversary (its in January). I love my husband very much and am blessed and challenged by our relationship in so many ways. I'm Mom to two beautiful boys. Being a mom brings me the most joy and the most frustration. There are some times when I just can't get over how cute my boys are and I just want to cuddle and kiss them all over. And then there are times.... well lets just say I wouldn't mind having a vacation or at least a day off or something once in awhile. I'm not sure if I'm truly Modest or if I just don't have enough confidence in myself. I don't usually give myself enough credit even though I have plenty of people in my life who encourage and build me up.

A - Anal - Artistic - I have been told (I'll admit it a little) that I'm Anal. I don't think I'm officially OCD but there are things that I like to have a certain way. Thats normal, right? I like even numbers, symmetry and having things go according to planned. The Artistic thing is kind of stretching things a little. I'm more crafty than artistic - unless you count my photography.

R - Rosey-cheeked - Real - I've always been fairly easy to get to blush. It used to be worse, every little thing would embarrass me when I was growing up. I do think that I'm Real. That was one of the first things that made my husband and I know that we had something special - we were both comfortable being our real selves with each other from the beginning.

I - Interested - Intelligent - Intellectual - Irresistible - I'm Interested in a numbers of things/hobbies. I like my photography, reading both fiction and marriage/parenting books, card making and scrapbooking, I'm a big tv/movie buff. I remember dumb tv/movie trivia. Anytime we watch a movie and I see an actor/actress that I recognize I proceed to bore my companions with a list of every movie that I can think of that the actor/actress has been in. My husband says that I'm Intelligent, Intellectual and Irresistible but I'm not so sure sometimes - see the Modest section.

E - Emotional - Encourager - I'm terribly Emotional. I cry at sad (or happy) movies. I get very emotionally involved in situations that may or may not actually involve me. I have to work at remaining unbiased when friends ask for advice, etc. I try to be an Encourager to my friends. I may not always succeed, but I do try. I love sending cards to my friends (especially out of town friends that I don't get to see much).

Alright.... thats as good as it gets from me. I don't have alot of blogging friends, so I'll tag Cindy and Kevin and I'll probably send this out on myspace because its fun. Thanks to Judy for tagging me.

Believe it or not, Lawana, I think we're a lot alike. I even cry when I watch Hallmark commercials! Thanks for playing along with me and doing this meme.
Have a great week!

This a good list. I tagged Judy and she tagged you. It's fun, isn't it? Although I think you and Judy (and Rog) would be totally fine without participating in all the silly little blog things I seem to feel the need to be involved in! Your hair looked really pretty at church today---I meant to tell you. Oh, and I know your anniversary is coming up, but remind me again of the year, K? Talk to you soon! Oh, and I'm on a scrapbooking kick. I did 7 pages tonight. I've done about 25 since the last scrap.
