Ack! I'm it!

Tracey has tagged me for a meme. It's the old name 5 things about yourelf gizmo and here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself with pictures.
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.
Have fun!
So, here are 5 things you really don't want or need to know about me.

1. (No, I am not in this picture, but it is about me...) I get made-from-scratch-with-real-lemon-zest, lemon meringue pie for my birthday, EVERY year, because I am a SPOILED, only child. There is no better cook than my mother, who has been gone for 7 weeks to FLORIDA, and she makes me two pies.

2. My husband is the absolute coolest guy, ever. He has never yelled at me, never told me to shut-up and never said my ideas are/were ridiculous, ludicrous or impossible. He's made me into a remodeling monster: "What do you mean you won't rip out the dining room ceiling to move that ductwork so I can have a bigger opening to the kitchen?!?" (This is an actual quote from me regarding our current project.)

3. I have wanted a Pembroke Welsh Corgi since I first met them when I went to work on the "A" hunter circuit. And, since I am a spoiled only child, married to an indulgent gentleman, I got them. We are on our 4th and 5th corgis and will probably always have them. This particular specimen is the best dog I have EVER owned, in my life, without a doubt. He was the leftover of a litter and Handyman didn't want to leave one puppy (we were buying the other one), so we cut a deal on the pair--best decision ever.

4. I love to bowl with my dad, at the bowling alley or on the Wii. He's a great teacher and a good sportsman--very fun to play with. We don't bowl very often so we talk football instead. (You can see where I get my hair...)

5. Red is my favorite color. It used to be green and before that yellow, but now, in my middle age, it's red. I want to be noticed--I have strong opinions and I'm glad to share them--red seems to scream "It's all about me" and since I am a SPOILED only child, I'm drawn to it.

And just in case you think one of those factoids is weak, here's an extra one for good measure...

6. I could really use a professional hair dresser who specializes in middle-aged, long hair required, no money--need highlights symptoms...

I'll tag BFF Debbie , EEEEMommy, Melissa , and #1 . BTW, that whole dining room ceiling thing is still not settled...just ask me.

Great tag! I especially enjoy the pictures! I'm horrible at tags, but I'll try to get to this sometime. :)

Great info! Thanks for playing
;0) Oh, and I LOVE bowling too! In real life or on the Wii! Football rocks also. We have a lot in common!

I always thought MY hubby was the best, but maybe your's ranks up there too! I also love Corgis. We have 2 German Shepherd/Corgi mixes and they are a hoot! Especially the one with some chow mixed in... talk about attitude! She has the body of a German, the legs of a Corgi, the markings of a Corgi, and a purple Chow tongue. The other has Corgi ears and more the brown Corgi coloring, but her body and face is like a petite German shepherd (only 37 lbs.). My next dog will be a full blown Pembrook like yours. They are just too too too cute!
