I was tagged by EllaJac from Aspiring to Simplicity, one of my new favorite blogs. I love these things and was secretly hoping to be tagged... haha! How sad ;) Anyway, here it is:

The rules:

1. Post the rules on your blog
2. Write 6 random things about yourself
3. Tag 6 people at the end of your post
4. If you're tagged, DO IT and pass on the tag

Six random things...

1. I have a strange and long standing desire to raise chickens. I remember asking my parents if I could have chickens in high school, and they said "no" with the excuse that I was going to leave for college in a couple years and didn't want to get stuck taking care of poultry. I guess that was probably a good decision on their part ;) Reading Aspiring to Simplicity has rekindled that desire once again, so I have chickens on the brain.

2. I have an obsessive personality. OK, I think that's a bit strong, but I have the tendency to get super excited about something for a while and think about it constantly. I don't think it's a very good trait.

3. I love to experiment with cooking. I rarely use a recipe for anything and enjoy "playing with my food." Sometimes I totally fail and make bad (or more often boring) food, but that's all part of the game... and I'm a really good loser so that's ok! ;) I have not, however, experimented with baking. I hear it's a lot more picky and I think if I tried to change something I'd screw it up. The most I've done is add peanut butter or chocolate chips to a recipe.

4. I cannot seem to get myself to read my Bible daily... I don't know what it's going to take to get me to do it!! I have had some really awesome experiences in the Word lately- feeling like it was really speaking to me- but still this does not get me to read every day. It's pathetic. I know I can do so much better.

5. I'm really cheap. I love to go shopping, especially for clothes, but have extremely low limits on the money I will spend on each item. Thank goodness for thrift stores, consignment shops, and clearance racks!!

6. I loooove antique kitchen stuff. It's pretty AND functional! When the insides of your kitchen cupboards are pretty, you've got to smile.

Um, looks like I have to tag six people... if any of you don't want to play you don't have to!
