7 Things....

The always fabulous Brandi of Not Your Average Ordinary tagged me with an award the other day. Check out her fabulous blog {if you haven't already} and send some love to my fellow San Diegan.

The rules of the tag are: Share 7 things about myself, post a song and some things that make me smile, then tag 7 bloggers to do the same...let's get to know each other a little we go.

7 things about me:

1. I'm really nerdy and totally goofy but my husband {unfortunately for him} is really the only person that gets to see that side of me.

2. I'm left handed. Lots of people know this about me but what they may not know is that it makes me totally backwards. I get my left and right mixed up all the time, I do everything backwards which really throws Rich off - if he thinks I'm going to go one way I always go the other way. Cutting the cake at our wedding was very entertaining ;)

3. I talk to my Mom on the phone everyday {sometimes twice a day}

4. I think I need my wisdom teeth removed.

5. My second toe is longer than all the rest of my toes.

6. I named the 4 palm trees in our back yard: Pamela, Paco and Mary Kate & Ashley.

7. We are completely obsessed with our dog. I know everyone says this about their dog but our world revolves around her. When we're not with her we're probably talking about her.

Song that makes me smile: Blessed by Brett Dennen. You can't be in a bad mood when you listen to that song. It often makes me cry {happy tears}

Things that make me smile:

-My new house! We're enjoying every second of it from being able to fit both cars in the garage to recycling everything, spending time in the backyard and fires in the fireplace.

-This season of American Idol. I was losing interest but I'm LOVING all the singer/songwriters of this season!

-Zulu of course. She makes me laugh every single day.

-Rich of course. I love him more every single day.

-When people leave nice comments on my blog ;)

I don't want to put pressure on anyone so I won't call out 7 people {even though it is really quick and pretty fun} but I will encourage anyone who reads this to do the same on their blogs. It's nice to take a step back every now and again to remember the things/people that really make you happy.

Thanks for listening! Cheers!

I love this, I may have to start tagging people (wait, is that allowed?)
P.s when your second tow is longer than the rest it means your smart!!! Definitely a good thing.

Ohh, I think I need my wisdom teeth removed, too ;)

And I wish #7 was me and my boyfriend! Sadly, no dog yet, but I am hurting for the moment. And once we do, I'm sure it will be just like you - because not even having a dog, we talk about them all the time!

It's lovely reading about your 7 things. You actually sound a lot like my partner stu, he's nerdy and goofy but mostly only in my presence. Like you he's also left handed and his 2 toe is the longest of all his toes!

Brandi said...

I'm a #1 too. When I'm with my boyfriend, I'm a complete goof. Thank goodness he hasn't recorded any videos of my ridiculous dancing. And YAAAAYYY for the new house!

Shelby said...

Ooh Melina if you find out first let me go. I'm dreading going to the dentist! And fingers crossed for a dog in your near future.

Trishie that's too funny! I wonder if weirdness, left handedness and long 2nd toes go together often?
Stu sounds like a great guy! ;)

Jen said...

This is cute, Shelby! I was surprised that I knew two of your seven things already!

taryn said...

i love that you named the palm trees in your backyard! haha
and my 2nd toe is longer than the rest too! all the women in my family are that way...

Stacie said...

Very sweet, can I please teleport myself to your new house? ugh, 3K miles away is SO far :(

Shelby said...

Yes Stace! Please do! I miss youuuuuu
