7 x 7

I was recently tagged in one of those 'Seven Things' posts by the lovely lady behind Small Catalogue. What an absolute honour! Make sure to read her seven paragraphs on the colour green and the Muppets!  

I must say that I was chuffed to bits to be asked to share my seven things! And because I like writing lists, I thought I'd give you seven things in seven different categories. 

So here goes:

1. The day I met my husband, Marco.
2. My first view of the Grand Canyon.
3. My holiday fling with a handsome Israeli when I was 20. 
4. Hugging Marco goodbye the night before our wedding day.
5. Having all my friends and family congregate at our house during our wedding week. 
6. Ice skating on our local pond and drinking hot chocolate from a thermos as a kid.
7. Making Christmas cookies with my Mama.

1. I like 3 parts tea with 1 part milk.
2. I only eat my bagels toasted.
3. I eat jam & cheese sandwiches.
4. I like my sandwiches cut on the diagonal.
5. I hate pink yogurts.
6. I hate pink ice creams.
7. Milk chocolate with whole hazelnuts is my one true love.

And now, especially if you're bored after reading through my 'fun facts', go on over and check out those ladies' spaces. They are all very different, interesting reads and well cool!

And to my seven lovely ladies: grab the award if you like, bask in your glory for a bit, and then maybe share seven things about yourself. Don't feel obliged, though. I just wanted you to know that I think you're awesome!
