We've been tagged!


My dear mother over at Where The Kudzu Grows has tagged Flibby and I to participate in a very fun looking meme!

Okay, I'll go first!

~I've flown all the way across the country to visit all the best theme parks in California. The highlight of the trip was riding a 255 ft. tall roller coaster.

~I can do a Cockney accent, and am quite often known to talk that way for an entire day :)

~I ate raw oysters for my 13th birthday.

~Flibby and I have met, talked to, and had our picture made with Charmian Carr. If you don't know who that is, she played Liesl in The Sound of Music!

~I am a complete perfectionist and I always pay very close attention to detail.

~When I was about 5 years old I was deathly afraid of 'The Tin Man' from 'The Wizard of Oz'.

~Before I started piano lessons, I took voice lessons for 2 years and I sang at many recitals. I also sang 'The Lords Prayer' at a wedding when I was 10.

Okay Flibby, it's your turn!


Here are a few little known facts about me:

~When I was 11 years old I traveled with my Nana all the way to Greece! We visited the site of the first Olympic games, saw all the major cities, and cruised to all the islands. It was the trip of a lifetime and I stopped to pet every stray cat.

~I've ridden the "Tower of Terror" at DisneyWorld 13 times in one day.

~I remember the first time I ever cleaned up anything by myself, the first time I lost a tooth and the first time I ate an ice cream cone without getting it all over my face. My earliest memory was from age 2.

~I've stood on the stage at "The Grand Ole Opry" and met a few of "The Radio City Rockettes"

~Poppy and I have met Susan Egan, one of my favorite Broadway stars who originated the role of "Belle" in "Beauty and the Beast" on Broadway and voiced a few characters in Disney movies.

~When I was little, I thought my dad was the coolest guy EVER. I still think so.

~Between the ages of 10 and 15, I was incredibly shy. I wouldn't even talk to a cashier to pay for something or answer the phone. My mom would find stuff for me to do that forced me to talk to strangers until was cured of my shyness.

Now, we tag:
My cousin Dory over at Seedlings to Sunflowers
Smokestack at Progress of Pilgrims
Southern Belle at Wisdoms Way of Learning

Oooo, your musical experiences are making me green with envy. I'm a big Broadway musical fan too, and my absolute favorite is The Sound of Music.Where did you meet Charmian Carr?

Back in 2003 when Charmian Carr was touring with a Sound of Music sing-along show, she was doing an interview on our local news and we went to the station with my dad (he works there) and got to meet her! It was so much fun! We went to the sing-along show the next evening. :)

Thanks for your comment Elisabeth!
