Since today is my birthday I thought I would share one of these fun meme things. I got this one from my friend Kellie at La Vida Dulce. Enjoy and consider yourself tagged!

In your entire life, have you ever...gone on a blind date? Yes, that’s how Steve and I met, Thanks Shelly!
skipped school? Yes
watched someone die? No
been to Canada? Not yet
been to Mexico? Yes, I grew up in El Paso so going to Juarez was just a quick trip
been to Florida? Yes
been on a plane? Yes
been lost? Yes, but I think I have a pretty good sense of direction.
been on the opposite side of the country? When you live in the middle which direction is opposite? Yes, I have been both east and west.
gone to Washington, DC? Yes, but when I was very young. I can’t wait to go back but am waiting to take Emily with us!

swam in the ocean? Yes (although salt water is not my favorite).
had your booze taken away by the cops? No
lettered in a high school sport? Not so much… I was a band (color guard) geek, thank you very much - for which I did get a letter.
cried yourself to sleep? Yes

played cops and robbers? No, more like played school
played dolls? Yes!
recently colored with crayons? Yes, it is a GREAT stress reliever (try it).
sang Karaoke? Yes, I Got You Babe with Steve on our honeymoon in Jamaica. Maybe again on the cruise this summer :)

paid for a meal with coins only? Don’t think so
done something you told yourself you wouldn't? Yes, let’s just leave it at that.
cheated on an exam? No

made prank phone calls? Remember those slumber parties we used to have, yes
laughed until some kind of beverage came out of your nose? Gross! No

caught a snowflake on your tongue? No
danced in the rain? Yes
written a letter to Santa Claus? Of course!

been kissed under the mistletoe? Yes
watched the sunrise with someone you care about? I usually watch it as I drive to work in the mornings
been arrested? No

blown bubbles? Yes! You would never think a tough 5th grader would like blowing bubbles but I use it a lot in my job at school.
gone ice-skating? Yes, I was HORRIBLE! It wasn’t very much fun for me.
been skinny dipping outdoors? No
had a nickname? Cindy is my nickname I guess since Cynthia is my given name. I also use Cin as well.
been to Africa? No
eaten cookies for dinner? I don’t think so
been on TV? Yes, well at least my arm has. Last year HEB (the local grocery store) filmed a commercial at my school. In the final product all you see of me is my arm in the background. stolen any traffic signs? No, I have never really understood why you would
been in a car accident? Yes but nothing major just me hitting someone else’s bumper, oops!

What is your...mother's name? Lynn (that will be Emily’s middle name)
favorite drink? Cherry limeade
birthplace? Grafenwohr, Germany - my dad was in the army.
favorite vacation spot? Too many to choose! I am anxious for the cruise this summer though.
favorite salad dressing? Ranch, I am a true Texan!

favorite number? 7

favorite movie? A VERY hard choice, today it would be Pride and Prejudice but ask me again later and I will probably have a new one
favorite holiday? Easter
favorite food? Mexican
favorite day of the week? Saturday
favorite brand of body wash? I use soap, guess I haven’t caught up with the times yet.

favorite smell? Macintosh Apples

Do you have any...tattoos? No
body piercings? Ear lobes only

Do you drive a 2-door or 4-door vehicle? 4 door
What do you do to relax? Read, sing, color, sleep
How do you see yourself in 10 years? Let’s see I will be 42… I have a feeling I will be a counselor at an elementary school somewhere (hopefully still in Waco). Funny how I used to long to get out of Waco and now I am very, very happy here! Emily will probably be in school as well, too fun!
Tag! Your it!
