I’ve been tagged!

There’s a game of blog tag being played and I got tagged twice! In the spirit of keeping the game going, I thought I would answer immediately (that way I won’t forget, like I have for a couple of awards, which I promise to do this week!) I have to answer 10 questions and since I got tagged twice (by The Chronicles of Cardigan and The (mis)Adventures of Sage), I will answer the questions twice with the help of Cali.

1. Describe yourself in 7 words:
Cali: playful, sweet, lovable, relaxed, HUNGRY, patient, devoted!
Me: silly, chatty, creative, animal lover, loyal, happy, positive

2. What keeps you up at night?
Cali: Monkey! He kicks me out of my bed all the time!
Me: The to-do list that is constantly running thru my brain! (& sometimes . . Monkey!)

Who Me!? I’m completely innocent…

Who me? I’m completely innocent!

3. Who would you like to be?
Cali: I’m pretty happy being me!
Me: Just little ole me 🙂

4. What are you wearing right now?
Cali: Nothing but a smile!
Me: Jeans and a teal top with a gray sweater (brrr, it’s cold today!)

5. What scares you?
Cali: Thunder, fireworks, and hockey games (well, maybe it’s my dad yelling at the hockey games!)
Me: Spiders, mean people, driving in the snow (there is a threat of snow tonight, I already went out to get my groceries, yes . .I’m that girl!)

6. The best and worst of blogging.
Cali: I’m the center of attention (I like that) but sometimes I get tired of modeling!
Me: All of the great people that I meet virtually- YAY!! All of the spam comments I get- BOO! (thank you Akismet for making it easier to delete them!)

How much longer do I have to stand here!? I’m hungry…

7. The last website I visited.
Cali: I watched a video yesterday: Cat vs. Dog – A trick contest
Me: The Chronicles of Cardigan (those corgi’s always make me smile!!!)

8. What is one thing I would change about myself.
Cali: Nothing!
Me: I wish I had inherited my grandmother’s cooking gene 🙂

9. Slankets yes or no.
Cali: I’m always warm, so no!
Me: I’m a fuzzy blanket girl, but I’m sure if I had a fuzzy Slanket, I’d be happy!

10. Tell us something about the dog(s) that tagged you.
Cali: My moms says that Sage LOVES the mud almost as much as I love puddles and she sleeps on the cat’s scratch post! (I could never get away with that in my house!) She also says that Dewi and Jon Farleigh are super cute corgis that make her laugh every day.

And now, I’m supposed to tag someone else! If you have already been tagged, just link to your questions in the comments! TAG- YOU’RE IT!

Pet Bloggers Gift Exchange, Wag the Dog UK

I call myself a “deadline driven” girl. If I say I’m going to do something – I do it (even if it I get it done just under the wire!)

This time, I really wish I had jumped in and got this done BEFORE we brought home a new little bundle of fur! Just about every single day for the last 3 weeks, I have written the Pet Blogg

 

ers Gift Exchange post as a “to do” on my daily list, but it never seemed to happen. SO, today I am delighted to introduce you to Wag the Dog UK (I don’t know how you could possibly NOT know about this amazing blog, but just in case, I will tell you all about it!)

First of all, there is an adorable Beagle named Maggie. Nothing melts my heart more than a sweet little Beagle face. But Maggie isn’t just any Beagle, she is a world traveling Beagle! This girl has traveled by Train, Plane, Automobile, Boat, Ferry, Bus, Taxi, and Limo on three continents!

Her website: Wag the Dog UK was started in February 2012 to share great stories, tips, and a few recipes with dog lovers like us! I am new to Wag the Dog UK and I am so
