My blogo-friend Bob tagged me in a meme a while ago. The first part is to list five facts about myself.
1. I have been blogging for about ten years.
2. Mamie Eisenhower once held me in her arms (at least that's what I was told). Really! I was three years old and was at a Christmas party at the White House with a friend of the family who worked there.
3. I have competed in, and coached eight different sports. Soccer, football, cross country, basketball, volleyball, baseball, golf, and track.
4. I have learned to enjoy gardening and am constantly looking for creative ways to redo the outdoor space at our house.
5. I am a beach bum at heart, but I also enjoy being in the mountains. Different things at each place speak to me in different ways.
The second part of the meme is to tag other bloggers. Since I don't know how many bloggers actually read my blog, if you have a blog and are reading this, consider yourself tagged. Let me know in the comments so I can check your five facts out.
