Tag...I'm it!

If you take a peek over to the left and scroll down a bit, you will see a little list known as my 'Daily Reads'. When I stop by these blogs, I really feel like I am being handed a gift. It's a gift of escape, and it's never disappointing. =)

One of my favorite reads is Tink's My Mobile Adventures. It doesn't matter whether she's mobile blogging from Disney World, shelling in Sanibel, or just staying close to home and sharing her innermost (hysterical!) thoughts. She always makes me laugh and smile, and I truly appreciate that!

Last week on her Blogless Thursday, she gave me (and the cat sleeping on my desk) the gift of shock when I clicked on a sound link on her page. Today, she surprised me again, but at least there wasn't any cat hair flying through the air.

I know you are sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to hear about the surprise, aren't you? Since you are sitting ever so patiently, I won't make you wait any longer. ;)

So...what did she do? She tagged me-twice! First time ever! I feel sort of silly being excited about that, but I'm not ashamed to admit it. Honestly, it's pretty cool!

The first meme was a Google game. Tink mentioned that it was optional, but I'm all about immersing myself in the moment. It's simple...just Google your first name with the word 'needs' after it, and then post the first ten results. If you like, grab the idea and tag away!

Here we go!

Mare needs....

1. Your help-Hmmmm. I usually like to take care of things on my own, but thank you anyway.

2. A name-If I didn't have one, silly, I wouldn't have been able to participate in this game!

3. A loving home-Mark sometimes calls me Suzy Homemaker; I'd like to think that I've got that covered.

4. To go now-Where? To WDW? Sure! Are you filling up the tank, too?

5. Man candy-Ummmm...Can't...stop...laughing!

6. A new rider-Oh, you must mean a new rider on my insurance policy. ;)

7. Good family-Yup, right here with me in my loving home. =)

8. A lift-Is this a premonition of vehicular difficulties?

9. Name-See #2 above.

10. A name-Aren't you paying attention? Even though you added an 'a' to it, we covered that twice already!

I regards to this search, did you know that a female horse is called a mare? I did, because in my past life, I was very 'horsie'. I got a huge kick out of the fact that each and every result had to do with horses. Even the 'Man Candy' one-LOL! It was either a sign, or just coincidence. ;)

Now that I am through sharing the first tag with you, would you like to see the second and even greater tag?


That, my friends, would be the BLOGGING FRIENDS FOREVER GOLD CARD, or just BFF Gold Card for short. Pretty impressive, huh? ;)

With this award comes some rules and regulations. Since I am a Mom and have to make a good impression, I will follow the rules. They are as follows...

1. You have to tag 5 people.
2. 4 have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

Okay, this is a little hard for me because I am pretty new at blogging. Although I am sure that folks are visiting our blog, most are either very shy or just not into the whole commenting thing. Then I have a few dedicated readers who love to read and comment, but they don't have their own blogs. What to do? Rules are bendable, right?

Since I can't re-gift to Tink, here are my five. At this point, I don't know of any readers who live in another part of the world. How about if I start with the nearest reader and end at the furthest? Fair enough?

Talk about close, Christa actually lives in the same town that I do! She's married with a daughter heading into her senior year of high school, and Teetering on the Edge of the Empty Nest pretty much describes her life right now. If there is something going on in our town, I will usually find a photo of it on her blog. She always has the scoop-LOL!

Next up is Debbie. Like Tink, she doesn't have to shovel snow anymore. No matter what the weather, it always feels like summer when I visit her blog, Debbie in Paradise. I love her travel photos...from Jamaica to Walt Disney World, there's something for everyone. She also owns Tropical Travel and Adventures, and is always ready to answer questions and help me with any travel plans. How helpful is that?

Jody has been a little busy with her family this summer, but I really enjoy her posts on Time to Simplify-Jody's Journey. I love reading about her family; her love for them shines through! Oh, and her hints on organization are just awesome.

Glo has lots of travel plans this summer, and at Our Little Corner, they are all being documented for posterity. I love popping in to see where she is taking us next...what fun!

Last, but not least, is Mari. From flowers to fowl, there's lots of gorgeous eye candy at MariBy on the Learning Curve. Her enthusiasm and desire to improve her photography skills have really inspired me to pick up my camera more often!

So there you go!'re it! Enjoy your Gold Card, my friends, and have fun spreading the joy with others. Just make sure to follow the rules, okay? ;)

Hey Mare, greetings from another of Tink's tagees. And poor Mariby. You and I both tagged her. I guess that makes her a double tagee, huh. Congrats. And I have bookmarked you blog so will be checking back often.

Tink *~*~* said...

uh, oh - Mariby is gonna flip out! :D Well, getting tagged twice is just a testament to the quality of her blogging.

Also, I can't stop giggling over "man candy" LMAO!

OMG I had to write words today - my forte is pics, not words!

Could I have some cheese for my whine? ;) lol :D
