Tagged Again

I've been tagged by Jill - so here are 7 things you might not know about me.

1. When I grow up I want to be a professor.

2. I am named after my grandma on my mom's side. I never met her, but have heard lots of stories about her.

3. I want to have lots of kids. Give birth to some, and adopt some.

4. In high school I really loved to sculpt. My senior year I sculpted a life-sized, ceramic, nude female for a state competition. My parents have been nice enough to keep the sculpture at their house all these years.

5. I hate to talk on the phone. I've never been good at small chat. I usually only use the phone when I have to.

6. When I was born, I was brought home in a Christmas stocking (I think it was on Christmas Eve, I forget for sure).

7. I LOVE RICE!!! According to me, no meal is quite complete without it. I like any kind of rice - white, brown, wild, long grain, short grain, medium grain, doesn't matter; and I like it cooked any way possible - plain, rice pudding, pilaf, rice milk, etc. Lately my preferred type of rice is short grain brown rice.

I'm tagging Christine, Lisa, Debbie, and Becky

When Paul was born on Dec 23, the nurses brought him to me for the first time in a Christmas stocking. The memory is vivid. It was the best Christmas present I got that year!

I can totally relate to the phone comment! I love to e-mail and blog, but I avoid the phone like the plague. Josh gets frustrated with me sometimes, but it's just the way I am! I'm glad to find a kindred spirit that can relate! :o) You are the only one I know besides myself that is that way!

So funny. I've been working my tag from a few weeks ago and I have on there too, "I hate the phone". Haha. I'm a rice fan too. So is Makayla. It's just SO yummy!

I love reading these kinds of posts! It's a great way to learn more about friends. We had rice last night and I thought of you. :) Oh, and thanks for the cookies. They were delicious!

I love the new family picture! So super cute.

I loved your list! You are SO interesting. What will you teach, professor?
I know that ALL of your children will be so happy to have you as their mom.
I think of you too, when I eat rice.
That statue must be a real conversation starter in your parents' home. =)
