I was tagged by the PolishInsomniac for the Versatile Blogger Award. How cool is that?

The Rules: Tell us 7 things about you then tag 12 other blogs for this award.
This is tough, since I am constantly telling you guys things about me, but how about I go with 7 really old things?

1. When I was a kid I begged my parents for a pretty yellow princess dress. According to my mom, she said no and when my dad came home from work, I convinced him to take me to the store to buy me the dress behind my moms back. How I loved that dress. I had to be 5 or 6 if I remember right. The first and only time I remember wearing the dress I was playing tag with my brother and he grabbed the back of the dress and ripped it. :( I no longer have the dress, but I can still picture it perfectly in my mind.

2. My first language was Spanish, (even though now I speak English better than I speak Spanish) and I remember being in school as a kid not knowing any English and having no clue what anyone was saying. But I did get that if we took a nap when we woke up we would have a single gum drop on our mat. Imagine a kid today taking a nap for a single gum drop!

3. At the age of 17 I was present while a good friend gave birth to her daughter. After witnessing childbirth, I swore I would never, ever, ever have any kids. 

4. On my first date with my husband at the mere age of 18, I looked over at him and knew in that instant that I would spend the rest of my life with him.

5. I got pregnant with my first child on my wedding night at the age of 20. So much for never, ever, ever having any kids! After the first one, I wanted at least 3 more. I now have a total of 3, could never convince Juan for the 4th one! Ha!

6. I hate cleaning and driving with a passion. I hate it so much that while most people dream of the house they will one day hopefully own, I dream of hiring a maid and a driver. I even think of how many drivers I will need and what days I would give them off. Oh if only I would win the lottery! Ha!

7. I will most likely never win the lottery. Why? Well because I just don't play the lottery! I guess I won't be getting that maid and driver after all!

  1. Washing dishes is the worst! That is my absolute most hated chore! Can you imagine a whole troop of maids and drivers? First I have to figure out a way to get Oprah's income....Ha!

  2. Juan is better at cleaning that me too. I love and hate that. Although I shouldn't say that. He cleans quicker than me, but I am definitely more thorough than he is! A weekly maid would be an awesome start! We used to have our laundry done back in the day and THAT was awesome. Someone washed and folded all the clothes for us each week, we just had to put it away. I often wonder if a stay at home mom in the neighborhood would want to come do some laundry, dust, vacuum, pick up a few things, clean the bathrooms, wash the bedsheets and change them once a week and what would it cost me. We had old neighbors who had a maid service once a week and they raved about it. One day....
