2 truths and a lie

Sarah tagged me to do a factoid post, but I decided to switch i up a little.

The rules...
1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 2 true facts about yourself and 1 lie.
3. Tag 4 people at the end of your post by including links to their blogs.
4. Have people guess which one out of the three is false.

#1 I met Micheal Jackson when I was 7
#2 By age 18, I've gone sky diving twice
#3 I won an African-American pageant when I was 11

ha- this is so fun- I wanna do another one!

#1 I was a childhood model in Tokyo
#2 While in Australia, I was serenaded by an Aborigine on a didgeridoo
#3 I got to hike up to the top of a volcano and see hot molten lava in Guatemala

let's see if you can catch the lies!

What to do tonight?

So we have our new couches. We got them at a great price and they are really comfortable. A few weeks ago we were sitting there and were wondering what should we do tonight. Well as you can see in this picture Treson was scheming.

Little did we know but he had something in mind for us. Yea he looks so innocent but really he is quite devious. I think he gets it from his mother. ;) So I left the room and came back to find him like this.

Apparently like you will see in this next photo he had an accomplice to help him do his dirty work. Oh how she mocks me with her "cool composure."

Needless to say they did a great job of it.

When Treson saw me coming he tried to run away.

He even left behind his accomplice. Well it didn't take long for her to follow his example and skidattle.

Well I had to go in after them and they surprised me by taking a picture. Its ok I am not with out my own means of defense.

Well after I caught up with them we all got together and had ice cream well except Treson. Hes grounded ;) j/k

Hope you enjoyed our story.

1. Where did you meet your husband?
we officially met in the lounge of my apartment complex after a college Sadie Hawkins dance when he came up to me and asked "don't I know you?" I didn't recognize him, so we checked if we had any mutual friends- no luck. That following week we spotted each other in our microbiology class thus discovering the connection. weeks went by and AJ would progressively inch his way closer to my seat ( sneaky huh?) We eventually became study buddies.

from "being official" to our wedding day we were just one week shy of a year

on occasion, he'll come home with a present- lots of chocolates( a full freezer bag full!!!!), cute little notes, or cookies. He'll set up a song on the computer and dance with me in the office. And he plans fun cute dates (wink and a nudge to AJ- it's your turn for date night this week)

on our real first date (that makes it sound like I'm easy, but it's quite the opposite)- we had huge tin-foil dinner date around a campfire and played sardines.

we love to take walks and play sports outside, watch movies, camp out in our livingroom, and see and do new things.

SS: Hollywood Morals

ha- is there such a thing?

On "The Today Show," Hoda and Cathy-Lee were interviewing Kirt Cameron about his movie "Fire Proof," when they came upon the topic about a particular kissing scene.

Following this discussion, I was so intrigued by his personal integrity that I did some research of my own. This led to some surprising feedback by critics and the general public regarding his small moral stand behind the scenes of this movie. They claimed that he couldn't act because he wouldn't kiss another woman other than his actual wife. How desensitized can they get- they've failed to recognize his valor in all of this.

Most actors today have little, if any, standards. Sure their character maybe their polar opposite, but that doesn't change the fact that they, themselves, are physically carrying out grotesque scenes. I'm not saying that kissing your character's spouse is "R" rated, but a lot out there is. They could argue that those productions have an artistic message, but how can they when most this sludge is just shallow entertainment?
