Seven Things Meme

I've been tagged for a meme by Dani over at InsaKnity!

The rules...
1) Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4) Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

7 Things about Me
1.) I still get carded to buy lottery tickets.

2.) I can handle rats, mice, lizards, frogs, spiders, just about any type of bug - but roaches send me screaming.

3.) I LOVE going to Disney World and am really looking forward to our trip next weekend.

4.) I collect carousel horses.

5.) I love to read, but am very picky about who I will read - Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Christopher Pike are my 3 favorite authors.

6.) I am NOT looking forward to working this weekend.

7.) I have a really bad habit of finding a new hobby, getting totally sucked into it and forgetting everything else, including past hobbies. It's almost like I cannot concentrate on more than one hobby at a time.

I don't know a lot of bloggers, so I'm just going to leave this open and anyone who wants to blog is hereby tagged.

Going Green

With the ever-raising prices of groceries lately, and just our desire to grow our own veggies, the girls and I planted some seeds and are starting a vegetable garden. Since it's still somewhat cold outside (although not too cold, we do live in FL after all), we have them in small pots in the house for now. Once it's warmer, we'll plant them outside in the space Craig is preparing to be our garden.

Here's some pictures of the girls planting the seeds:
One week later:

Two weeks after planting: They're growing like, dare I say it, weeds!

There I go, slacking in the posting department

But to make up for it, I'm sharing a video of my littlest's newest feat. :)

Fancy editing, complete with typos, by the hubby. lol

ALSO - GreenStyleMom is hosting another giveaway. This time for a mom & kid set of earth-friendly water bottles from SIGG to celebrate SIGG's 100th anniversary. There's also a link in her post to enter for a chance to win a trip to Hawaii to see Jack Johnson. (But, you can't enter because we don't want the competition!)
