Kayleen Tagged Me!!!

THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the 6 weird things about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things a s well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says you are tagged in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

6 Weird things about me:

1. I love anything that is free! I don't care what it is, if it is free I will take it! Free books, magazines, catalogues, calendars, clothes, dishes, free samples at the grocery store, toothbrush and toothpaste at the dentist office, recipes ripped out from magazines in waiting rooms, knitting and crocheting patterns on the internet, my blog....I could go on forever!!

2. I'm a bag~freak! I love bags! I love paper bags, plastic bags, fabric bags. Bags can be very useful! I always seem to pick up extra grocery bags when we are at the SuperStore because they always come in handy. I really love zip~loc bags...the little snack bags, the sandwich bags and the freezer bags. If we go somewhere special, I always try to get a bag from there as a little souvenir.

3. I love RubberMaid! I love all RubberMaid products! I love thier sandwich keepers, snack keepers, baking bins, cereal dispensers, drying racks, closet organizers, laundry baskets. I love all their tote boxes because they come in all sizes....great for storage! When we move from one house to another, we don't use cardboard boxes, we use RubberMaid Tote Boxes...they are wonderful because they are stackable and you can label them and best of all, they all match! My husband has even called me his "RubberMaiden"!

4. Must eat my sandwiches a certain way! Mayo smothered on both pieces of bread, mustard and bologna on the bottom and then cheese on the top. When I eat it, it must be bologna side down, otherwise it tastes totally different...I hate eating it with the cheese side down!

5. Public washrooms! I hate having to use them, but when you got to pee, you got to go! For some reason though, I always seem to find the one washroom that is the most disgusting! Do people not have any class anymore? Or is it that people don't know how to clean a washroom anymore? I can't stand it! I feel like bringing my own toilet seat! I can't stand the sight of someone else's hair and "fluids" on the toilet seat or anywhere near the's so gross! I never touch the "flusher" with my hands, it's always my foot! What's wrong with people these days? YUK!

6. I believe I am becoming "Hermit~ized"! Slowly, but surely I am becoming a hermit! I hate to go anywhere. I love my house in the country! I hate having to go to town for groceries and whatever else. I don't mind hubby treating me to lunch....that's always nice, but all the driving around and walking around the stores, that's not for me! I love being at home with my husband and kids. I would much rather entertain friends and family here at home than go out anywhere to do our socializing. There have actually been times where I haven't gone to town for 2 whole months! I just like to be home!

Okay, now it's my turn to tag! I am choosing to tag:
Mary Anne form Miss Woolly Knits!
KnottyKitty from Knottykittyknits!
Tina from tmarieknits!

I am so happy that all the holiday hub bub is done! It was definitely a crazy stressful one this year! I always have good intentions of getting everything done on time for Christmas, but somehow, every year I always find myself running out of time. How does that happen? I'd like to say that I will start my Christmas knitting now for next year but to tell you the truth, I can't look at another dishcloth. I am so ready for something new! I have recently inherited a bin of baby wool, and it has totally inspired me to do up some baby outfits! I'm so excited for the change. So while I was hunting for the perfect little baby outfit to start, I had a difficult time deciding which one to do. I came up with a lot of patterns, and thought I would share them with everyone on my blog. No sense in finding all these wonderful patterns and not sharing them with others to enjoy! So here is the list of baby outfits that I came up with, I hope you enjoy! Happy knitting and crocheting to all!
