7 Things Odd and Interesting About Me

I usually skip out on the "Tag! You're It..." posts. My main reason is that I want to stick to my topic. This time around, I'm going to tackle the tag. It's Saturday, right! However, I am only going to list out things that pertain to health. Thanks for the tag, Bethany!
  1. I used to eat ice cream with my dad every night at 8:00. I mean every night. Talk about a hard habit to break! I guess it's been hard for him too. We both still have raging sweet tooths (or would that be sweet teeth?).
  2. I buy a lot of my food in bulk, which saves money in the long run. These large purchases at irregular times wreak havoc on a budget though. To solve this, we have a reduced grocery budget and a bulk food budget.
  3. I love avocados. I can remember my mom fixing avocado sandwiches on brown bread for me as a girl. She always peppered them, which is how I love them now.
  4. I am very bad at remembering to drink water. I think I'm missing the thirst mechanism.
  5. I can't stand the smell of raw eggs. Most people can't even think of how raw eggs smell. Even though I don't like the smell, I still make eggs for my kids and husband... and omelets for guests!
  6. We spent a few years as vegans. After noticing some health issues arise, we started to add in some high-quality meats. We still don't eat meat every day. And when we do, it is a grass-fed, organic variety.
  7. I simply can not follow a recipe. No matter how hard I try, I just can't do what the writing says. There's always something I tweak. That's why every recipe posted on this blog is my own variation... and I can't even follow my own recipes! Cooking is always an adventure in our house.

I am supposed to tag three more people. I am compelled to tag bloggers I know personally. So, Tonya, Noel and Jonesey... I can't wait to hear your seven things!

I'm horrible about drinking water too!! Sometimes I'll get on a kick and FORCE myself to drink 6 cups a day and on those weeks I lose crazy amounts of weight. I know it's good for me, I just always forget!

1. I don't fall asleep easy these days because my husband has lost so much weight on our diet that he doesn't snore at night anymore. I need him to start snoring again so I can get to sleep!

2. I love old movies and (clean) funny movies.

3. I have a handful of recipes that I cook well, the rest of the time we make do with what I try to cook. I'm not a great cook.

4. Chewing gum helps me play the piano.

5. I have to have a cup of coffee every morning and after supper.

6. I don't remember to drink my water for the day until after supper - therefore when I do get to sleep, I have to wake up and take a trip :)

7. I like to eat out every now and then just so I don't have to do dishes.

8. I never do dishes until lunch

9. I've heard too many blonde jokes

10. I seldom read a book that is not historical nonfiction.

Thanks for tagging me - it made me think :) and obviously I can't count because I just wrote 10

Yum, ice cream!! :D

Avocado is so delish!! I used to have avocado sandwiches, too. I haven't had one in ages though.

I didn't know raw eggs had a smell either. LOL!
