Busy Weekend and Tagged

Update: 9:20am---Aaaahhh! I just realized I was supposed to post a wikipedia blogfest piece today. I'm going to work on it right now!

This weekend is going to by B U S Y! Tomorrow morning is graduation for all my seminary seniors. It's going to be sad to lose some of them...

Later in the afternoon we are taking family pictures. I'm excited to see how they turn out, but I'm worried too. I didn't lose the weight I wanted too (in fact I gained 5lbs stressing about it), and it is HOT here in the South. We really want outdoor pictures though. Our photographer is a good family friend and she's amazing! We will get several family shots, groupings, and individual shots.


Sunday is church, which is about four hours of busy for me, and the Super Duper One Time Only Girl's Camp meeting. There's only one just so we can give it a really long name. I'll meet with my kitchen staff for the first time and go over my plans for the week's menu. I'm also coordinating the refreshments for the 50-60 people that will be there.

I'm slightly terrified about the whole thing.

Monday is going to be a great day. Next week is my week over at Unicorn Bell. I plan on talking about how to give and receive critiques. On Tuesday I'm going to ask for 350 word story snippets to critique. This can be any spot in your WIP that you know something isn't working and you want advice on. If you have something like this, please come by next week and see how to submit it for review.
 And now for the tagged portion of this post. I love reading the posts where other people get tagged. Can't say I'm good about responding when I get tagged, but I've been hit a couple of times with this one, so here goes.

Tagged by:
Trisha at Word + Stuff
Michael from SLC Kismet
And I think one more, but I forgot to bookmark it. Sorry!

Anyway, here are the questions:

Do you think you're hot?
No, but I sure wish I was! I'm just not disciplined enough to lay off the chocolate and hit the gym instead.

Upload a picture or wallpaper that you're using at the moment.
Correction--hubby did not take this one.
But he did take this one.

When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
Yesterday for lunch. A good friend taught me how to make empanadas and we used chicken. They were so yummy!

The song(s) you listened to recently.
Um, because I wanted to or because that's what the radio stations are playing over and over and over?
I'm addicted to Evil Angel by Breaking Benjamin
Tomorrow by Chris Young
Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri (I listened to the whole CD yesterday and highly recommend it.)
Also check out The Lonely by Christiana Perri

What were you thinking as you were doing this?
OMGosh, how am I going to pick 8 people to tag? I hate having to single people out. What if they've already been tagged? What if they just hate this kind of thing?

Do you have nicknames? What are they?
Does Mom count? Sometimes it's the best nickname and sometimes it makes you want to scream. When I was a teenager someone called me Spot. She did it to embarrass me in front of my hubby. (He wasn't my hubby yet! We married young, but not that young.)

A lot of times people confuse my name and call me other things. That list includes: Christy, Cherry, Chastity, and the lady with the stripper's name.

I will answer to Christy, but none of the others, so don't even think about it.

Tag 8 blogger friends...
In all my thinking I decided not to. :) If you WANT to be tagged, consider yourself IT!

  2. I couldn't pick eight blogger friends either! Hope it's cool outside for your photos tomorrow.

  3. Yeah I found 8 people to tag. And mom doesn't count as a nickname. However, I absolutely love Breaking Benjamin. We are musical soulmates in that aspect. In the least, I'd never fight for control of the radio.

  4. Rogue and Alex, I could have found 8 blogger friends, but I just hate the whole tagging thing. That sounds ungrateful I know (sorry Michael!). It just smacks of the chain letter thing. I DO enjoy reading everyone's answers, but inevitably the same people are picked over and over and someone is left out.

    By not picking, I'm giving anyone who WANTS to do it consider themselves tagged. :)

    Michael, I'm thinking I should add Dear Agony to the Sendek Saga soundtrack. I love when I find acoustic versions because Ben Burnley can SING. Yeah, I love the hard edge to their songs, but really appreciate that they can actually sing when they go acoustic. Some bands are not so lucky.
