Middle Name Game

So I have been tagged by my fellow blogger Rebekah of Sunnybrook Farm Designs to play the middle name game. Here is what I have been instructed to do:

Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

This is going to be a hard one for me, since I have a fairly long middle name, plus the fact that I am not very creative. So here goes:

C ~ Children ~ I have 2 children, Sydney, age 4, and Trevor, age 20 months, and then I have one on the way. That is the first word I think of when I see the letter C.

H ~ Honest ~ I feel like I am completely honest with everyone that I meet. I have been known on occasion to be "brutally honest".

R ~ Rowdy ~ Not actually rowdy as in I like to go out and get in bar fights and cause a big commotion, just rowdy meaning in my youth I would like to get with my girlfriends and go out on the town and have lots of fun. I guess a better word would be Wild or Carefree.

I ~ Inspired ~ I am always inspired by so many different things in my life, but when I first stumbled upon custom boutique clothing, I was so inspired by all these wonderful designers and their gorgeous creations. I wanted so badly to be a part of the boutique community in some other way then being a buyer. When I found out about blogging from a designer that I have been inspired by probably since the very beginning of my buying, about 4 years ago, I naturally wanted to start this blog to let all the designers know how inspiring they are to buyers and other designers alike. That first designer that inspired me is Amelia from Sweet_Feet_Boutique, and she still inspires me today. She is not only a person to look up to, she is also a friend.

~ Silly ~ This goes without saying. I love to be silly with my kids, and my husband, and my friends, and just about anybody. I am very lighthearted and I joke around alot.

T ~ Travel ~ I absolutely love to travel, and would go just about anywhere. Well, maybe not anywhere, but mostly anywhere. Outside the U.S., I have only been to Canada and Mexico, but I have dreams to go to Europe and so many other places eventually when the kids are old enough.

I ~ Independent ~ When I was growing up, my mom always taught me to be independent, and not rely on other people to take care of me. That kind of stuck with me, and now I don't rely on people to do things for me or help me out when I am stuck. The only people I truly rely on is my family. Also, I am independent in the sense that I don't let motherhood define who I am. It is the biggest, most important thing in my life, but I would like to think of myself as someone other then Sydney and Trevor's mom.

N ~ Nose Ring ~ Okay, this isn't something that describes me, just a small fact, I had a tiny nose ring until Steve and I got engaged. It was the smallest silver ball, barely viseable to the naked eye. Got rid of it because I didn't want it to show in the wedding pictures. I will have to see if I can dig up a picture and scan it on here.

E ~ Enormous ~ Maybe I'm not enormous, but I am 5 months pregnant, and I feel enormous right now! I have only gained about 12 pounds, but it feels like 40!

Whew, that was difficult! Now I have to tag NINE PEOPLE! Let's see, I will tag Becky, Eva, Patrice, Patty, Michelle, Emily, Amelia, Angie, and Chelsea. Hope you girls don't mind!!!

YIKES!!!! Another tag! Where do I find the time!?? ;) LOL! I loved reading yours... we have so much in common. I especially liked what you said about "Independent" because I am always saying that about myself and hoping that motherhood never "defines" me but just "adds" to my personality! :)
I also LOVE LOVE LOVE to "travel" and often feel "inspired" by those around me. Well, I could just steal your entire posting... *sigh* if only my middle name was Christine! ;) LOL!
