Tagged... TWICE?

Thanks a lot Jennif and D. It's not fair to tag team (especially when the person you tag has NO TIME!). So, here's our participatory response (the crowd cheers!).

The Tag:

1-The player lists 6 facts about themselves.
2-At the end of the post, the player tags 6 people and posts their names. The player then goes to their blog and leaves a comment letting them know they have been tagged and asks them to read the rules.

Our exception to rule 2: we don't know 6 other bloggers who have not been tagged, so the buck stops here!

K's List of 6

  1. I love Mexican food! My veins run red with salsa!

  2. Two words... BOOK FREAK!

  3. I speak 1st and think later (I'm trying to reverse this problem!)

  4. I stay up way too late - EVERY night!

  5. My back is always itchy.

December... already?

How can it already be December? Where did time go? How come this happens every year?

However it arrived, December is here! There are so many great and fun things that happen during this time of year that it is easy to lose sight of the meaning of the season: the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Although I love all that is related to this season: the lights, the carols, the festivities... I hope to stay focused this month on the things that matter most, which is the topic for my Top 10 list for this month.

K's Top 10 List of What Matters Most
  1. Spending time with Brian

  2. Staying in touch with family

  3. Increasing my own spirituality

  4. Growing closer to my Savior

  5. Making time for myself

  6. Being with friends

  7. Serving others

  8. Recognizing my blessings

  9. Simplifying

  10. Enjoying life

So, what matters most to you? Post your response or a link to your response in the comments.

heRe we R!

So you could say I caved to the silent pressure of my competitive side by creating this blog. I have a blog, a professional blog, a blog that focuses on children's books (it's a kingdom, really, and you should check it out at the link in the Blog Roll!).

But after seeing great blog spots created by my familia to keep us informed about their days, I caved. So... heRe we R... B & K... online bloggers! Well, K is today, we'll have to see about B!

Since it is the time of year that we all think about what we're grateful for in our lives, I choose to share my Top 10 list of things I appreciate today. Hum, this could be a meme (but I have no idea how to get it started... a little research may be in order!).

I did my research on a meme and found the definition and explanation at, where else... WIKIPEDIA! Here's what I learned:

A blogger invites other bloggers to list their 'top five songs of all time'. Those bloggers publish their list, incude the memetag that links back to the original invite, then invites more bloggers and asks them to include a link to the original post.The next bloggers list their top five songs of all time, each linking back to the original post using the memetag. Each of them invites more friends. And so on.
