Back In Time...

Our Mommy got tagged twice last week, by Lynn from Lynn's Musing and Mumblings and by Katie from Mishkat. Both say she is to give 7 facts about herself but Katie's adds that she is to include a photo of when she was younger.
*Hey Isabella, did they have cameras way back then?*

Anyway, we'll let Mommy take over and post her picture and facts!

1. Although Katie was brave enough to post current pictures, I'm not that brave so we'll stick to old photos like this one! It's of me and our dog Sally. I'm not even sure how old I am in this picture but I'd guess 3? Pretty cute outfit huh?
2. I've posted this photo before but it's been awhile so I'll post it again. It's of me and my first cat Sugar. You can read more about me finding him by clicking here.
3. Okay, here's a fact. There is a way, somewhere on this blog, to see a more current picture of me. That's all I'm saying!

4. I grew up in Kansas but after seeing a family friend's house leveled by a tornado and then having a tornado take the roof off a building near where I was working during college, I knew I needed to live in a tornado free zone! We moved to Loveland, CO right as soon as I graduated.

5. I never mailed a package on my own until after I got married. My dad was a Postmaster so I sent all my mail and packages to work with him. And now that I have to stand in the lines I realize what a perk that was!

6. I'm not on Facebook and it seems like I'm the only one who's not!

7. I'm shy - really! This could be the reason for #6!

I also want to thank Eileen from Dorset Hill Beads for giving me the Lovely Blog Award!
If you like "mysteries" and can figure out things from clues, you should check out her Theme for Thursday posts! I'm not good at figuring things out but I enjoy reading them and then seeing how far off I was! Thanks again for the award Eileen!

We hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Thanks for doing this - I love those photos! You look so cute in that cowgirl dress.

I am terrified of tornadoes too - and I didn't even grow up in the Midwest (possibly the Wizard of Oz effect?) When I lived in Missouri, a lot of the people who were actually from there thought they were no big deal - I absolutely couldn't understand this and went into the basement every time the sirens went off.

And I'm not on Facebook either - I can barely keep up with Blogger :). I'm also not the kind of person who would ever want to go to my high school reunion, and sometimes Facebook is like that. (My sister likes it for just that reason!)

I love the cowgirl outfit, too!

And here we thought we were the only ones not on Facebook!

What a cute little cowgirl (and doggie)!

I love the second picture too but the 'here' link didn't work for me.

Great post and very interesting facts! Thanks for letting your Mom blog, girls.

P.S. It was not a bikini, it was a bra LOL. I didn't post the next picture where Samson wrapped himself up in it and fell fast asleep!
