I just want to apologize to Brooke for not responding to her tag earlier. I really do read her blog but my internet has been down and I moved and I was sick. So, here goes....

I'm supposed to list 7 quirks/other things and then tag 7 people.
1. I can almost never correctly estimate the amount of time it takes me to get ready. It's something that drives Nate crazy but I have been doing so much better than I used to!
2. Things always have to be even for me. If I have a handful of M&M's, I cannot stand it if there are an odd amount of color's (ie. 2 blue, 2 green, 1 yellow!). It drives me nuts!
3. This may be TMI but I have a shower routine. Everything goes in order... rinse, shampoo, rinse shampoo out, condition, body wash, rinse body, then rinse conditioner out of hair. If I accidentally go out of order then I will more than likely start all over again.
4. I have a really bad habit of joining Nate when he's singing. This wouldn't be a problem if I didn't start at a different key (because he is singing too low or the octave higher is too high) or I'll start at a different part of the song than he is singing... sort of like a row row row your boat round thing. I never realized I did that until he called me out on it! He's so good for putting up with me.
5. I find delight in small, very simple things. For example, if you buy the bag of generic honey combs then you will more than likely find several individual honey combs that look like a Jack O' Lantern.
6. I am a sucker for rock/punk/hard music. Every time I hear AFI, I just smile. Several people who have known me for a long time know this but for those who haven't known me from California wouldn't really know this since I have branched out in my music taste a little and don't usually wear my converse shoes anymore (which I still have and refuse to throw away). Now I just wear my rainbow sandals until my poor feet can't take it anymore when the snow comes.
7. I would consider myself to be pretty independent. I have a hard time with Nate opening my doors. Not that I don't like it, it's just I'm not used to such chivalry! He always likes to open my car doors and the doors at church and the places we go out to and when we first started dating I would always forget to let him open my door. Now, I remember 98% of the time, but the other 2% of the time I forget. Anyway, my husband is a gem and the only time I ever need to worry about my door is getting out of the car (I think it's bratty when girls wait for their dates to open their doors... no offense to anyone who does that :)

Okay... now for my tags. 1) Mikey 2) Jen Chapman (that's right... two posts for you guys!) 3) Jenny Clark 4) Kathleen Dunn 5) Tiffany Cox 6) Tasha Brown 7) Crystal Holdsworth

I liked your post. I still need to sit down and do mine. I have to figure out what to say...or at least narrow them down. :) By the way, I was looking through your blogging friends...are we not good enough to be friends? j/k I hope you had a great time camping.

Thanks for doing it! No need to apololigize though.
