Yes, I’m a day late, but I still wanted to play. The ideas behind the “Tuesday Toot” is to brag about an accomplishement of you or your kids. I had a good one to share, so there’s another reason I couldn’t pass it up this week!

My brag - I got my taxes done on Sunday! Hurray! I’ve been putting this off for well, more than a month. Since I don’t have to wait for W-2s, I can pretty much do my taxes on the first of January. My lazy rear sat on them though, because the thought of having to do them just was not appealing.

However, over the weekend I finally cleaned off my desk so I could find all those receipts that pile up over the year. Yes I’m admitting my desk only really gets cleaned off once a year to find information taxes. BUT, I’m happy to say that horrible task is done, and so are my taxes! Again I have to say, HURRAY!

What’s your brag for the day? Please feel free to share here in the comments, or post yours on your own blog!

I’ve been tagged by my friend Lauren, directly after I tagged her a few days ago! The post is “7 Things You May Not Know About Me”, so here we go….

1. I’m a single mom
Yup, it’s the truth!  We get along fine though, just me and the kids. I’ve been divorced for several years (which is a GOOD thing if you knew my ex!)

2. I like odd colored fingernail polish
I own quite a few bottles of fingernail polish, but not a one is pink or red. I only wear blue, black, purple, green, or any other funky color I come across. Sometimes I even put on combinations of different colors. It’s my way of being unique!

3. Give me silver, not gold
Continuing with the weirdness of my fingers, I also prefer silver rings over gold. The only time I’ve ever worn a gold ring was when I was married. I’ve since ditched the diamond and gone back to my good old sterling silver rings. ;)

4. I don’t like doctors
So maybe you DID know this about me, I don’t know. I don’t trust doctors, specialists, or anyone that comes out of medical school. We are somewhat of a “natural” family, and treat most ailments (what little we have) with natural home remedies.

5. I sell candles
Again, something you may have known. The “secret” is that I don’t make them. My mother does. She is my partner with Prairie Soy Candles. Trust me, you wouldn’t want them being made in my house around the kids. Who knows what would happen to them if they were being made here!

6. I have a Pontiac obsession
I’ve been driving for more than 10 years now. In those 10 years, I’ve owned a total of 3 cars (the last I bought a few months ago). All three have been the same model of Pontiacs…..kinda. The first was a Sunbird, and the last two Sunfire (the replacement Sunbird). I usually drive them until they die, but they sure are good to me!

7. I’m only in my 20s.
When I started working online several years ago, I was only 19. Everyone guessed me much older, and I think they still do! Ironically enough, they guess me much younger in real life. ;)

Now who to tag?  How about…..


Have fun ladies!

PLEASE just follow the rules! ;)

Just copy paste THIS and everything below up until my Five links:

I’ve been tagged! Lara thought it would be cool to have a meme where we post links. We can post up to five. Then we tell five more people to share their links. If we all share who tagged us, our links are sure to be seen! :)

They can be business links, favorite sites, affiliate links, whatever you want…

There are Five Rules:

1. MUST be clean. No R rated sites.
2. Only FIVE links.
3. MUST tell 5 people.
4. A link back to the person who tagged you ;)
5. Lara’s Place is the meme originator. ;) (an active link is appreciated)

My Links:

1. Prairie Soy Candles - It’s that time of year! Candles make great additions to family gatherings (especially the Christmas scents!), and also great gifts.

2. Mommy’s Helper Community - I have to give a shout out to Anita. This is one of my favorite communities for work at home moms.

3. Organize.com - I’m completely in love with this site. My wish list is about a mile long. If anyone needs organization, it’s me.

4. Eve’s Best - Not only does this site offer some fantastic products, but there is LOTS of information here as well. I’ve know Evie for awhile - she has done her research well!
