Tag … You’re It!

Hola peeps!  So, yesterday I was tagged twice to reveal seven random facts about me.  I was tagged by the lovely Allison, at Green Dog Wine and also the fantabulous Caitlin, over at See Bride Run.

Here are the rules:

  • Link to the person who tagged you
  • Post the rules on your blog
  • Write 7 random things about yourself
  • Tag 7 people at the end of your post and link to them
  • Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog
  • Let the tagger know when your entry is up

Ok, folks, are you ready for my BIG reveal?!

  1. I have a super nose!  I smell everything … and I mean EVERYTHING!  You ate garlic two nights ago – I can smell it.  Had onions on your salad at lunch – I know that too.  Enjoyed a little drinky drink – know it!
  2. I shave my legs every single day without fail.  Religiously.  If I am late, oh well … I will still shave and just be late.
  3. I can sing along with quite a few Eminem songs.  I’m the REAL Slim Shady.
  4. I have two left feet.  I am the clumsiest person you will ever meet.  I run into everything and have banged my head more times that I can even count.
  5. I was walking by the time I was 10 months old.  Too bad that didn’t help me with the clumsiness!
  6. When I first met Devin I told him I was 21 so I could go out with him and his friends.  (I was actually still 19!!  Bad girl!)
  7. I’m a mutt – mostly made up of Norwegian, German and Swedish.

Bonus facts (since I was tagged twice):

  1. I am double-jointed in my fingers – I can bend each finger at the top knuckle.  It’s actually kinda gross!
  2. I was named after a cheerleader that my mom knew in high school.  They weren’t great friends, but she thought she was always so bubbly and outgoing.
  3. I was never a cheerleader … sorry mom!

I would like to tag the following peeps –

All the other blogs I fancy have already been hit up, so I just choose these three fabulous ladies … if I missed you and you wish to share some fun facts, consider yourself TAGGED! 😀


Ok, straight on to my eats for the day …

I was at my in-law’s for lunch today and my dad-in-law whipped out the leftovers from Sunday’s party … a.k.a. more ham!!!  I’m good with the ham for a while.  We still have some left from what we brought home and I’m transferring it to the freezer tomorrow.

My lunch plate –

Ham on Pumpernickel, Apple-Cranberry Crunch, Baby Pickles and WW Crackers

I left their house around 3:00 and ran some errands.  I ate this guy while I was buzzing around –

Mmm ... Peanut Butter

I did a quick workout this afternoon, consisting of 20 minutes on the treadmill and 25 minutes with weights. 

My legs felt pretty tired tonight, so I don’t know if they would have been able to do much more than that anyways.  I’m glad I did it though … I was trying to talk myself out of it!! 😳

African Chicken and Vegetable Soup



  • 2 boneless chicken breasts, pre-cooked and shredded
  • 4 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 medium sweet potato, diced
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 sliced carrot
  • 1 celery stalk, sliced
  • 1 tsp. minced jalapeno
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 cup medium salsa
  • ~3/4 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • ~1/4 cup PEANUT BUTTER


In large soup pot, combine broth, sweet potatoes, onion, carrot, celery, jalapeno, cumin and salsa.  Simmer until vegetables are tender.  Add  shredded chicken, black beans and peanut butter; stir well and simmer for a few additional minutes, until thoroughly heated.

I had seen several soup recipes in the past that included the addition of PB, but I just wasn’t sure how it would fly.  It works!  It was really good … gave it more of a Thai taste in my opinion (and Devin’s too!) 

I actually hid the addition of the secret ingredient from him until he convinced me that he really liked it … I was afraid that if I told him ahead of time that it had PB in it, he would make assumptions beforehand.

I am really sleepy tonight and think I will curl up in bed.  I really wanted to catch up on some blog reading, but I’m afraid it will have to wait until the AM.  I’m just zonked.

Nighty night 🙂
