Little Secrets

Tag, I'm It!! 5 Secrets About Me!

I was tagged by Lara & this is my first time being tagged ever! I don't know how I feel about it, so I guess I'll just start typing & see what comes up!

Here's the rules:
  • Get tagged
  • List five things that have not been revealed on your blog
  • Tag five other people
1.) I've been married 3 times. The first one really doesn't count since our marriage was annulled after 10 horrible months. The second marriage lasted 8 years. He was a wonderful girlfriend. I've now married for the last time 3 years ago. How do I know this is the last time? This marriage is sooo different from the other two. And .. I think you just know.

2.) I used to be Mormon. I was raised Mormon (strict) but decided as an adult that it wasn't for me. I could elaborate on this further, but I'll spare you my religious beliefs.

3.) I used to be a highly successful sales manager making 6 figures a year. For the last 2 years I've been President, CFO & Manager of my home instead. I pay myself in cuddles from the dogs, enough yarn to always be able to knit something, & being loved by the most amazing husband in the world!

4.) I'm a perfectionist. I'm in constant battle with myself over it. I have the opinion that if I can't do it perfect, then I won't do it at all. It's the one thing I hate about myself, but I'm working on changing that one day & one step at a time. Blogging helps me get over my perfectionist self by admitting my faults ... cheap therapy indeed.

5.) My life goal at 14 years young was to study piano at Julliard & perform at Carnegie Hall. I did end up studying piano performance in college on a full ride scholarship, but quickly realized that it was probably not the right choice. I don't play the piano much anymore since as a child I used to practice the piano up to 4 hours a day ... can you say "burnt out"?

I'm tagging Laura, Heather, Carole, Karen, and Nicole. Of course there are many more of you that I'd like to tag, and you escaped this time, but you may not be so lucky in the future!

*Just a sneak peek photo of a FO I'll be posting about in the next day or two.

How interesting. I've also been married three times, a year the first time, then 7 years and now it's going on ten. Third time's the charm I say!

Wow, I identify with several things you mentioned. I've only been married once, but my first boyfriend should have been, well, my girlfriend. :-) And while I've never been Mormon, I am from Utah, so I'm very familiar with Mormon culture.

I like your secrets! I guess I can relate to the Mormon one. Nothing against them....It just wasn't for me. As for the marriage thing, I think it is great that you finally found a man with whom you will stay with forever. Life is way too short to limit your options when it comes to love and happiness.
