Tagged Truth Tuesday

Rosalind Adam tagged me with seven questions, and since it was Truth Tuesday, I figured it could be a Tagged Truth Tuesday. Time constraints demand economy, right? Thank you, Rosalind, for the tag!

Are you hot?
Yes, definitely hot. I'm one hot momma.(Kidding, kidding.)

Upload a picture or wall paper you are using at the moment. 

This is the dashingly handsome sidekick's fault. I don't know why he chose this as our wallpaper, but it's a nerdy picture of our family from Easter. Whenever I look at it, I laugh, which is probably the reason he chose it. We had a hard time corralling the children to all look at the camera at the same time. I guess they are all *looking* in this one. Sort of.

When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
Two nights ago. I made fettuccine alfredo. There was chicken in the sauce.

Songs you listened to recently?
We listened to music in the van coming back from Boise. The last CD was a Beach Boy's Collection (my nine-year-old's request - she is a Beach Boy's fanatic). Before that we listened to Great Big Sea which is a Newfoundland folk group. The DHS and I picked that one.

What were you thinking as you were doing this?
What was I thinking as I was listening to the music? Well, I was mostly wishing my daughters would stop fighting in the back seat. It was a long drive.

Do you have nicknames?
Not really. I had some in high school, like Amer and A-moo (the latter because I had an affinity for cows -- don't ask me why). Now people call me Amy or, more commonly, Amy Lynn (because my sister-in-law's name is also Amy Sonnichsen, so we have to find a way to differentiate between the two of us).

Tag eight blogger friends.
Oh, it's hard to choose just eight! I love you all so much.

2) Krista V. over at Mother. Write. (Repeat.)
3) Faith Elizabeth Hough
4) Myrna Foster, a.k.a. Night Writer

And last, but not least...
8) Kim at Asiaramblin

You're it, ladies! Have fun playing!


  1. adorable picture! and - that question "when is the last time you ate chicken meat" cracks me up. What other part of the chicken would you eat? silly question ;)

  2. What a darling family! I don't see nerdy at all.

  3. You are hot!

    Great Big Sea? That's awesome! Yay Atlantic Canada! (How did you ever come across them?)


  4. What a cute family picture! I loved it. I personally have decided that our family pictures will only convey personality during this season of our life, so I've stopped worrying about the results of family photo sessions.

    (Okay, I haven't really accepted it, but this is what I tell myself)

  6. Thumbs up on the fettuccine alfredo! Yum. And you have a very nice family.

  7. I think it's a lovely picture!
    Oh how I remember the "fighting in the back of the car" days.
    BTW, despite the forecast, we got about 4 hrs sunshine today, so my washing is dry! yay!

  8. You surprised me. ;o)

    I love that picture of your family. You guys look happy.

  9. Lovely photo ... and Hot Mama is right :)

    Thanks for the tag ... will play soon (before Tue).

  10. You're very welcome to the tag. It really is the hardest thing to choose just 8 people isn't it. I lurve that photo. Your family are wonderful bit I can't help wondering where you get the time to write!

  11. I love the family photo from Easter! It's definitely wallpaper-worthy. :)

  12. I love your family photo! So cute! I have two teenagers, and I can barely get both of them to smile at the camera at the same time....

  13. Wow, Amy! Your family is adorable. Five little kids-- must be a handful!

  14. Dropping something in the mail for you today...!

  15. Just wanted to pop in and say I totally saw this, even though I haven't responded to the tag yet! (I read this post just before leaving for the beach with the fam.) Loved reading yours--and agree that the family pic isn't nerdy at all!
