Tags, facts and the weekend.

I was recently tagged by Mariko over at Gamerwife and Marla at A Weekend Crossing for some fun tags. Thought it would be good to end this week sharing some tid bits. And I'm really glad it's the weekend because it's been a funky week for me -- just feeling a bit nervous and anxious and not really knowing why. Ever get into these moods? {Please tell me this happens to you too}. 

Some facts if you're interested reading! 

01 // I was a rabbit for my first Halloween. It was in the 2nd grade. 

02 // The first anime I ever watched was Ranma 1/2 in high school. I have been hooked ever since. 

03 // I cannot whistle. 

04 // I also can't snap my fingers as well as I would like.

05 // But I can make those annoying popping noises when chewing my gum. It drives Yangkyu crazy. Heck, sometimes it drives me crazy but I can't help making those popping noises. I may be making up for not being able to whistle and snap my fingers. 

06 // I tend to burn things. Lately it's been pots. I just burned another one this morning while trying to steam sweet potatoes. 

07 // I secretly want to live on a farm with a two goats named Gertrude and Hedwig, some cows, horses, chickens and pigs and grow my own produce. I am embarrassed to say this because I know it's not all fun living on a farm and I'm afraid I'll sound clueless. But I do wish sometimes that it could just be me, Yangkyu, Piri and the animals and hopefully we can raise our kids in an environment where they know and appreciate people and animals and the food we grow. 

I'm supposed to tag some folks, but I'll leave it open to anyone who would like to participate! If you do, please let me know so I can hop on over and take a look too. 


What do you have planned for the weekend? We are carving pumpkins and heading over to our local garden center to once again look over their gardening tools and products and probably come home with nothing because we have a hard time deciding what we need vs. what we want. Have a good one!

  1. I can't whistle either, I can make a slight noise, but I am useless. My husband can whistle really well and it's annoying, haha!! I hope you have a relaxing and wonderful weekend doll, enjoy yourself. Love to Piri & you all xx

  3. I think we need a picture of you in your rabbit costume, and Gertrude & Hedwig are the PERFECT names for your future goats :-) Hope you have fun carving pumpkins this weekend!

  4. I sometimes get in those moods where I feel a bit anxious and restless for no obvious/apparent reason too! It's rather annoying to go through, but it's normal :) Hopefully the weekend will make those feelings go away. I am also not a very good whistler or finger snapper.

  10. I can't whistle either! I am double jointed and can wiggle my nose and ears. It's hilarious watching my husband not be able to wiggle either. Have a great weekend! We were invited to a pumpkin carving party.

  12. Haha, this is cute! I'm in love with what you'd name your goats ;) And sorry about your funky week mood, I also had a pretty funky week this week in the mood department. Maybe it just happens. I love what you have planned for your weekend. I carved a pumpkin for the first time last year and it was really fun. Have a great weekend love!

  14. I think it's really nice to want a small farm and to grow the things you eat, I'm definitely leaning that way myself and even if it is a naive peachy thought, I think humans are pretty adaptable and we can make things work :)

    The accompanying photo is delightful. You both exude such a good vibe and so much warmth. xx

  23. I would love to live on a farm too! And I'm pretty pathetic at whistling

  24. Omg I was a rabbit for my first Halloween too! Although I was in preschool haha. My grandma sewed me an amazing onesie costume with a matching hood hat thing and mittens. And that farm dream sounds amazing, I want to just live away from people except those closest to me too...animals make way better company sometimes (most of the times...!).
