Linky Meme

Ripple Progress 1/22/08
(photo doesn't have anything to do with this post other than Cheri asked how my ripple blanket was progressing....)

Ok, I've been tagged by Julo. I don't mind answering meme's (I think I secretly enjoy them), but I don't really like tagging people, so I don't really like meme's as a whole. But I love reading other people's meme's. I just don't like tagging people to do them. Is that strange? Anyway, this is one of the more interesting meme's that I've been tagged with. Here are the rules:

Go back through your archives and post the links to your five favorite blog posts that you’ve written. But there is a catch:

Link 1 must be about family.
Link 2 must be about friends.
Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are… what you’re all about.
Link 4 must be about something you love.
Link 5 can be about anything you choose.

Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least TWO of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better.

Since my blog is relatively new (almost a year old), we may have to stretch a little to fulfill all the requirements... Ok, here we go!

Link 1 - This post from Mother's Day. We have a very strong female gene in our family... Out of the 8 cousins on my mother's side, there are 7 girls and just one boy...

Link 2 - Haha, I forgot about this post. This is from when I went down to San Diego with a few of my college friends. Oh the picture that Justin photoshopped is fantastic. Interestingly enough, this post includes answers to another meme....

Link 3 - This one is hard for me. I feel like I'm kind of all over the map. What defines me? I'm cheating on this one and using this post. This one just happens to include another meme (I guess I really do like them! Who knew?), and photos of quilts I liked from the quilt show. I think the quilts show a bit of what interests me and what grabs my attention. And looking back at that post, I still like them so don't worry, the interests are current! :)

Link 4 - Something I love? Just one? I LOVE to travel. I love going out and trying new foods, seeing new sights (and sites) and just absorbing the feel of the place. I love all the cultures that different areas of the world have to offer, and I love seeing how my priorities I have from growing up as an American are different from people in other countries. I had one big trip this year, chronicled in this post.

Link 5 - Corgis! I have corgis on my brain! Honestly I have had them on my brain for a while, but I haven't shared that information with all of my bloggy friends until recently. Last year when I was taking a photo a day, there is a shot where I went to a corgi specialty back in May. I think it was couple months before then was when I had decided that I wanted a corgi and that I needed to do more research. It's been a long time coming, but with Lucy coming home with us soon, it will all be worth it. Hurray! Here is the post about Lucy.

Ok, and now my least favorite part. Who to tag? Ok, I tag Melody, Kristine, Amy, June and Suzanne.

Well, this is quite a challenging meme but fun. I like your list of things from your blog, having to make such choices really makes you think.

I feel exactly the same way about tagging. Thank you for tagging me and I shall endeavor to overcome my fear of tagging and respond to your meme appropriately. It will take some thought but fortunately I've not been a blogger too long so my blog post choices are limited.

Oh Lynn! That blanket is gorgeous. I wish I could stand to crochet more than a few rows.

Amy said...

Hee hee, you can tag me...this will be my first meme!

rdrop said...

Even though it had nothing to do with the meme, I'm so glad that you posted a photo of the blanket - it's aweseome!
And while I've resisted replying to tags on memes myself, I do love reading other people's. This was a fun one!

Love the ripple! I like reading people's memes, but I get lazy about doing them.
