I've been tagged by Lee at Lee is a precious dear I met at She Speaks. I feel like I've known her forever. We share a love for prayer and I think her boys are the cutest things! Thanks for the tag :)

So the rules are:

1) Link to the person who tagged you (

2) Post the rules on your blog (copy and paste 1-6)

3) Write 6 random things about yourself (see below)

4) Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them

5) Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.

6) Let the tagger know when your entry is up

So on with the random things about Mari:

1. I won a poetry contest in the 5th grade. That was my first foray into "public writing". I wish I had kept going with my writing. But God had other plans and now my writing rests in His hands.

2. I've never seen Risky Business or Ferris Bueller's Day off. My husband says that officially makes me weird. I think I'm weird whether I've seen those movies or not but hey, let him have his fun :)

3. I got engaged to my husband after dating just 6 months. We got married a year later. 15 years later, we're still going strong. Who says you need a long courtship :)

4. I suck my tongue. And I have apparently passed that along to my younger beauty. It drives me crazy when she does it. Then of course my husband takes a little too much pleasure in saying "Well it makes me crazy when you do it, so don;t bug her about it." Oh one day he's going to pay for that phrase. And I mean that in the most Christian of ways

5. I'm addicted to MouseHunter on Facebook. I hope this infatuation passes soon but knowing my Type A personality, I won't give up until I reach the highest level.

6. If Blair Underwood were in front of my house and my husband was calling me....too bad hubby. Have you seen Blair? I mean really - OH MY! I need a fan. It's suddenly very very hot in here. Mercy!

Oh okay now that I've wiped the drool from my mouth... Here are the six bloggy friends I've tagged:

You are funny!:)

I love the sucking your tongue one.
My husband's brother used to get so aggravated at him, because he would "suck his teeth" after eating.:)
I still tease him about it, and he will say, "I'm not sucking, I'm blowing.":)

And you can totally live without seeing those two movies, but Ferris Beuller will bring you much laughter. It is very funny!:)

And I totally understand your Blair Underwood situation.
If Mark Wahlberg is on television, I'm like, "Shannon who?";)
(Of course, I'm kidding. Sort of.)
So if he were ever to be at my front door (could you pray about that please?), I don't know what I would do.:)

Great post!
It was fun getting to know you.:)

God Bless,

Ok girls...if we are going to be honest weakness would be Matthew McConahay..I love his eyes and voice. I teased my husband this weekend (after buying "We Are Marshall" CD) that he is the second sexiest man alive (my husband being the first of course). Truly, I would pick my man over him any time, he is so so good to me!!

Thanks for the tag...I may have to do this later in the week but I will try. I am not very good at these things.

You are a blessing Mari!!

6 random things:

1) I love the 60-80's country music, but rarely listen any more.

2) By His Wounds, is one of my current favorite songs!

3) I am a nut for romance, and I still enjoy Pretty Woman. Thankfully I was able to record iton The Family Channel not long ago, so it's all cleaned up!

4) I am delighted with a cucumber sandwich.

5) I tend to pick at my toe nails like others pick at their finger nails. ewww!!!!!!!!! ;0)

6) I crave green beans right out of the can, and sauerkraut right out of the can. Gives my Man the creeps!!!!

Mari, thank you so much, and I love ya too!
