So here is the tag meme from the sweet Sarah @ The Mama Pirate. She tagged me a couple of days after Hilary and since the rules were a bit different I decided to do both of them separately.
Here are the rules:
1. You must post the rules
2. Post 12 fun facts about yourself in the blog post
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create 12 new questions for the people you tagged.
4. Tag 12 people & link them on your post. (or as many as you like)
5. Let them know you’ve tagged them.
Here are 12 (fun) facts about myself:
- I was born in East-Germany.
- I speak fluent German. (Duh!)
- I learned Russian before I learned English.
- I know how to crochet, albeit badly. But the kids all have cute scarves and the girls’ barbies have some cute outfits.
- I have never driven a car in Germany and never will.
- Before I met the hubby I wouldn’t eat sushi. Now I could have it every night.
- I’m pretty clumsy. I seem to have a thing for breaking glasses.
- I hate to iron, especially hubby’s dress shirts. That’s why they go to the dry-cleaners now.
- According to my son, I’m a slave driver when it comes to studying and doing homework!!! 🙂
- I just recently ate raw clams for the first time. Delicious.
- I am starting to get super excited for the new Breaking Dawn DVD to come out. Twilight marathon, anyone?
- I’m scared to check out Pinterest for fear of adding another “addiction” to my social media arsenal!!!
