Ok, I was tagged by Kellie at http://acorn-cottage.blogspot.com/ to do a middle name meme!
Here are the rules: You have to post these rules on your blog. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you do not have a middle name, choose one you would like to have. When tagged, write your own blog post containing your middle name facts. At the end, choose one person to tag for each letter of your middle name. Then leave them a comment telling them they have been tagged.
Family- so important to me...I love living close to my parents and siblings. My daughter also lives in the same town as me so she is not too far away! I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my family around. We have needed them and they have needed us more times than I can count.
Love- giving and receiving. I am very lucky to have such a wonderful man as my husband and father to my children. He loves me and he is the love of my life. We met when I was very down on myself after a divorce from an abusive marriage and he has proven to me that real men don't need to hurt the women they love.
Orange Milanos. Need I say more. I have a great recipe that mimicks these cookies and I bake them at Christmas time. I should bake them more, but I like that it keeps them special.
Reality shows..not so much a big fan except Big Brother and RockStar...I don't really care for all the others...maybe Kid Nation this season, tho. I will have to wait and see how the first episode goes.
Evenings- I wish my evenings were more productive and organized. I always feel rushed at the end of the day and I feel that I never get enough accomplished. Sometimes I am so tired I go to bed as soon as the dishes are done from dinner (if I am lucky we used paper plates!).
Nice- I try to be nice all the time, I think that is important...and it goes a long way. If you are walking down the street how hard is it really to acknowledge another person and say "hello"? Or when you are walking in a building and someone holds the door open for you or you hold it for someone else, say "thank-you" or "you're welcome". And even in the drive thru I say "please". It is just the right thing to do and not many people do it anymore. It is my pet peeve...like when you are in the market and the cashier doesn't even acknowledge you in her lane and continues talking about her boyfriend/best friend to the neighboring cashier...really frosts me!
Creative- I try to be. When I see something I like I see if it is something I can make myself or with Dan's help. The sense of pride that comes from making it myself and the fact that it is for the most part better made, is immeasurable. We have some neat shelfs and cabinets and stuff due to things I have seen and then re-created at home, as well as lots of decorative things I have made from a picture I may have seen. With Dan's help I will try to create anything...no matter how hard it may look at first.
Enough- as in enough is enough. Really, that I have enough in my life. I really have a good life, it wasn't always that way, but we have worked hard to get where we are in life and that is that we have enough of all the things we need. That said...I do have a Christmas wish list....
Ok, there you go, kinda lame answers but that is all I can do with a middle name like that...actually, I was named after both of my grandmothers so this name is my mom's mother's name. What's a girl to do?
I am gonna tag:

On another note, I am playing around with black & white photos. I need to have PhotoShop installed on my computer so I can do a lot of neat things to my pictures.
