I was tagged by several people on this one!

Just so all of you know I have been sicker than a dog for about 2 weeks!! It started with a bladder infection (I know you all wanted to know that), then the flu/bronchitis, I can't wait to feel better. I have literally only been out of my bed to go to the bathreoom and eat for the last 3 days. My wonderful hubby has been taking care of the boys. I finally feel good enough to update my blog. I have been tagged a few times so you are all about to find out more about me than you really care to know.

1. List the link to your tagger and also post these following rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog - some random, some weird, etc.
3. Tag 7 people at the the end of your blog also leaving the links to their blogs
4. Let them know they are "TAGGED" by leaving a comment on their blog.

THE FACTS...strange or not ~

1. When I was younger I used to hate it when girls would pretend to be my friends just to get close to my brothers!!! I am the youngest of five kids and I have 3 older brothers. I remember when I was in 2nd grade I had a sleep over for my birthday and half way through the night almost all my friends were in my brothers room hanging out with them and flirting disgustingly!! I went upstairs to cry and found 3 of my best friends talking about how lame it was that all the other girls were flirting with my brothers. Those 3 girls are still great friends of mine to this day! Thank goodness for good friends!

2. When I was in the 6th grade I loved New Kids On The Block! I went to a concert with my mom, my Aunt and a bunch of my cousins. I was so in love with Joey! Sorry Katie...I have to tell the story! One night my cousin Katie spent the night and as we were going to sleep I told her that it looked like my poster of Joey was looking at me. She said she thought he was looking at her. So we started fighting about who he was looking at and who he liked more until finally Katie went home. Whenever we bring this up to each other we laugh so hard we cry!!!

3. I used to want to have 12 kids, until I had 1. Now I think we'll have 4 or 5.

4. Mike and I were engaged 3 weeks after our first kiss. What can I say....when you got it, you got it!

5. I can burp longer and louder than anyone you have ever met! No Lie! You can ask my family, cousins, or my husband...even my kids will tell you! They love it when mommy burps so loud and blames it on them. I got it from my dad, we have horrible stomaches and we blow up like balloons and then belch like a bunch of Irish drunks!!!!

6. I thought I was going to be totally cool in High School because everyone knew my brothers. Then the summer before my freshman year happened!!! I went to my friends house to get my hair cut and her mom gave me a total butch hair cut and a month later my parents decided to get me braces!!! I was soooo ugly!! If that wasn't bad enough 6 months into my freshman year my parents decided to move me away from all of my friends (and my brothers hot friends) to Utah where I knew nobody. For about 2 months Chad and I ate lunch together like total dorks. I met some great friends out there but had a serious "loser" curse! It's probably a good thing I moved away because if Mike had met me in High School he probably would have never married me. Needless to say I was NOT cool in High School!

7. I was on the Country Dance Team at UVSC. Wasn't cool in college either!

Get out and vote!!

Today is the big day, "Super Tuesday" and I have already been out to vote. I want to encourage everyone who reads this blog to get out and vote today. I have been following this election very closely and am a strong supporter of Mitt Romney. No, I am not voting for him just because he is Mormon, I am voting for him because he is against abortion, he doesn't believe in amnesty for illegal immigrants, he believes in cutting taxes and spending in Washington, he knows the economy better than any other candidate and has a record of making changes. The list goes on and on and I will admit that knowing he has high morals, strong values and faith in God makes his decision a no-brainer for me.
I was watching Fox News and they said that Orange County voters are crucial for Mitt Romney. So those of you who live in the OC get out and vote (unless your voting for McCain-then you can just stay home =) ha ha. For those of you who think Mitt doesn't have a chance you should know he is polling very well. If Mike Huckabee was out of the race we wouldn't be so desperate, but Mitt is still winning in the California polls by 9% and is doing very well in most other states. Here is a video clip explaining why he would be the best choice for Californians.
*make sure you pause my music so you can hear him speaking*
