Tag-You Are It!

Blogland is an adventure, isn’t it. I am "meeting" kindred spirits I probably would never have known any other way. It’s remarkable. I have to pinch myself sometimes when I think that people all over the world have heard about my little shop, Vie Chaotique. Stranger still is that some of you find what I have to say interesting enough to visit again and again. I hope you know how much this means to me, and how your support keeps me motivated to make my boutique a success.

One of my kindred spirits is Bebe. She’s a little sneak that one, and writes for the charming blog Peaches and Dreams. I say she’s a sneak because she tagged me! I think all this tagging is juvenile (wink) however I can’t pass up the chance to talk about myself. It’s too tempting.) So fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. Warning: The following subject matter is for mature audiences only. (Gotcha didn’t I – you don’t think I am going to write the really juicy stuff here. do you?)

Right before I turned 40, my big girl job sent me on a teambuilding adventure in Costa Rica. I was the only woman with 15 guys in the rainforest for a week. It was one of the best and worst experiences of my life. I am a city girl and had never used outdoor plumbing or slept under the stars. I am proud that I did it and hope to never have to do anything like that again.

I had two brushes with one of my heroes. In London Debbie Harry and I were at Harrod’s, and both reached for the same sweater. (I have excellent taste). Another time we were standing in line together at Cosco.

I am very decisive however I don’t have a favorite color is. It changes. Most of the time it’s red.

This Is Glamourous, don’t be angry I borrowed this picture from the LA Times from you. And by the way this is the complete opposite of my rainforest experience,

So there you have it…I think I have listed seven, probably more. (I don’t like following rules so I am not going to stress if there’s seven or not.)

So now it is my turn to pass this along to 7 would be friends. Enjoy! We all look forward to learning more about you!

Your rainforest experiment sounded interesting, as did your two brushes with Debbie Harry! Thanks for your comment on my site, and while I very much appreciate the tag, would you mind terribly if I bowed out? I was tagged recently, and am not certain I can come up with another 7 facts . . . Thanks for thinking of me :)
