Tagged re: Quirks

My sister tagged me on her blog...and if you know Care I better do it or else!

1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Post these rules.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them

Yikes this is harder than I thought.
I am not sure how to link people either.

1. I have a texture problem with food I don't like to mix them or better yet I don't like chunks...for example I don't like chunky peanut butter...I am never really sure if it is a peanut chunk or a bug. I can find and spit out even the tinniest chunk of anything.
2. I love peanut M&M's but I only like the shell and I throw away the peanut inside...it drives Cory and Amy O. crazy but alas it is the way I eat them!
3. I hate driving...I find it difficult to focus on driving and do anything else like talking, breathing or listening to the radio...if I have a friend with me I always make them drive...even if it is my car!
4. I always look at other people's shoes...and make assumptions about them...I know that it is wrong but no matter how hard I try I still have a trouble with people wearing white shoes after Labor Day!
5. I don't like to be talked to in the morning...if you ask me a simple question like what time is it I get horribly frustrated and have difficulty processing the question and the answer...so just leave me alone for a while!
6. I am superstitious when it comes to games/cards...like... I have to be red, I don't touch my cards until the dealer is finished and never I get cocky...or my luck will change and I will lose!

I will tag Amy O'Neil, Nancy M (I know you don't have a blog so just do it in my comment section), Melanie P., Radene, Emily L., and last but not least Elise.

Well I did it... all 6! So tonight I will think of better ones and I will want to edit this post.
That is all for tonight.
Love you all

Fun Birthday!

OK Friday was my birthday and lets just say I am 39 and holding! I woke up late and remember Cory kissing me goodbye when it was still darker outside and whispering Happy Birthday in my ear. I was surprised by breakfast in bed by my two lovely daughters followed up with two hand made cards by the same sweet girls. I then found propped up on my computer screen a birthday card from Cory that made me cry.After Cory came home early he took me all the way to Butler to a huge scrapbook store that actually had stuff from this year! He even said I could go hog wild and get whatever I wanted...a dangerous thing to say to me! I was restrained only by my thoughts of going to AZ at Christmas time and wanted to spend my money at my favorite store...Devine memories of course! It was good to be around all that new stuff and pretty new papers...it's an addiction.
After the scrapbook store we headed to Texas Roadhouse for dinner and I had the T-bone and all I can say is yum! We tried to save room for dessert but we were all stuffed with food left on our plates...maybe we should have had only one basket of yummy rolls!
We left TRH and ran to the airport to get Cory's brother Scott...he is coming to do the concrete driveway that I have been dreaming about for the last 2 years. It is so great having talented family that takes time from their own family to come and help out a poor relation that has a sad and broken driveway.
After we got Scott we headed home and ended the day with a trip to Bruster's...and ice cream place that is extraordinary. I had 2 scoops! It was the perfect ending to a wonderful day.
That is all for now I will post pictures of the new and simply gorgeous driveway later,
