Anyone Up For a Good Game of Tag and Tell?

I’ve been tagged by Erica of Meadow Street ! Be sure and check out her blog and wonderful website. Here is a pic of some of her fabulous handmade roses! YUM!
I have two weddings this week, so I'm trying to multi task here a bit and will use today's Show and Tell to...tell a little about me! Here are my 7 random things about me.

1- I love milk on ice cream. I know that's totally weird, but it makes little ice crystals...yum!

2-I have a rooster fetish...OK, had a rooster fetish! I have about 20 roosters in my kitchen/dining room. But I think I'm ready to move on....I haven't bought one in a long time!

3- I had never been to a beach or Disneyland until I got married. No wonder I'm still a kid at heart!

4-My favorite breakfast is peanut butter on bananas, unless it's Saturday and then it's a breakfast burrito from McDonald's. We had this little ritual every Saturday morning of taking our dog to McDonald's for a sausage patty. She will never let us forget that it's Saturday!
5-My daughters talked me into reading the Twilight series ( love,vampires and werewolves)...which I usually hate, and I am totally hooked and can't wait till August 2nd for the last one to hit the stands! One more week to go!

6- I drive a Kiwi green Honda Element! It's so fun!

7- I'm so boring I had to think about what to put for my last one overnight...Something I'm proud of is the work I've done in our church with the youth. For the past 20 years I have taught and counseled hundreds of youth ages 12 -18...what an incredible honor and blessing! But now my assignment has switched and I am teaching the 5 year olds....they keep me hoppin, but I love them too!

If you were tagged and want to play:
1. Link your tagger and list 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. Have fun!

Hi Eileen

Good idea to tell us about you. Like you I went to Disneyland after we were married I think you get just as much enjoyment older than when you are younger. memories to always treasure

Hi there Eileen (I'm guessing those 7 things are your's Eileen!) You are a busy bee this week with those weddings! I have never tried milk on ice cream, I pour diet coke on mine because I love how that makes crunchy crystals too and it tastes great! I also like a little bit of amaretto on ice cream, yum! Have a great week!

I collect roosters figurines as well...but more so because of feng shui purposes. I am born in the year of the dragon and they say that roosters are my best friends and could help me...LoL :)

Hi Eileen,
You are definitely not boring....I just love hearing about all of our friends at MMP. But, the best part is your ability to teach kids, especially in Church.....that takes special talent and special caring...and it surely says a lot about you!!! Thanks for letting us take a little peek!!

Hi Eileen,
Erica's roses are so pretty, and would look gorgeous pinned to one of your straw totes for a summer evening stroll on the boardwalk.
Hope Karen is improving and returning to the "pink" of health quickly,
