Rockin' Girl Blogger!

Many, MANY thanks to Vicki Garrett (aka summerthyme on SCS) for tagging me with the Rockin' Girl Blogger award! (Hence, the "thank you card" pictured here, which I did as part of a VSN challenge on SCS yesterday . . . actually inked up real leaves to press the images onto the card!) Okay, well, she DID do this forever ago, I just haven't gotten around to doing anything about it! I have actually been "tagged" multiple times and am embarrassed to admit that I never did anything about it! So here is my attempt at responding to the tag (just gotta figure out who I am gonna tag now!). I guess the rules to being tagged include telling seven things about yourself, so here goes:

1. I am a pirate. Well, okay, I WAS a pirate! Honest-to-goodness! I was the mascot for my high school when I was a senior and we were the Cyprus Pirates, so that is what I was! Arrrggghhh!

2. My favorite book of all time is "To Kill a Mockingbird." Honestly, I think it should be required reading at least ONCE a year! Too bad Harper Lee never wrote anything else! (The movie was actually awesome, too!)

3. I have been teaching fitness classes for (GASP!) about 15 years! I started teaching step aerobics and have done everything from weight training to water aerobics to Spinning (which I currently do and LOVE!).

4. One of my other crafy passions is making jewelry. I have been doing it for years and occasionally teach classes at a local jewelry store.

5. I have to admit to a guilty pleasure . . . just LOVE watching American Idol (though my family and I agree that some of those AWFUL people who do totally embarrassing auditions are paid by their friends to go on there and act like idiots!).

6. I have been PTA president four times! People just know I am a sucker and cannot say NO! Actually, I have a friend who has offered to take me to a tattoo parlor every year on my birthday and have the word "NO!" tattooed on my forehead (all I would hafta do is lift up my bangs!).

7. I am a sucker for a movie that makes me cry (which, admittedly, is not hard to do!). Even "The Wizard of Oz" and "Babe" get me going! Don't even TALK about "Old Yeller"!!
