TAG TUESDAY ~ Middle Name Meme, Bag Tag, Things I've Come to Realize Tag

Tag (Catch-up) Tuesday!
AKA: "Tag OD!"
I am using today to catch up on a couple of the other tags I neglected to do. I have been feeling bad I didn't get to them, but NOT ANY MORE! Here ya go...

Jody "Dawn" tagged me with this one.
1) You must post the rules on your post before you answer the questions.
2) You need to list one fact about yourself using each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name use your maiden name instead.
3) When you are finished with your answers, you tag one person for each letter of your name.

M Mom & Mother. I love being a mother more than anything else in this world. It is one of the most noble and greatest callings we women are lucky enough to have. It is not easy, by no means, but it is the most rewarding of all jobs or careers out there.
A Active & Alive. I love to be involved and active in many things. I love being alive and living my life here in America where we have so much to be grateful for. I am so Appreciative of the Abundance of blessings I have.
E Eager & Excited to Educate myself (this one is hard!) I like Exercise only as I am Exiting the gym. I am Enthusiastic about Eating chocolate. I am Extra Experienced in Exhaustion. I am Early to Escape Evil! Okay, at least I tried!

I tag the following: Mel, Holly, Raigon, & Jen

Jen tagged me on this a few weeks ago and I never got around to doing this one either, but since my purse really needed a good cleaning out, here it is.

Here are the rules:
1. No cleaning out your purse prior to inventory and picture taking.
2. Lay everything out and take a picture.
3. Take a picture of your cute purse!
4. Post and tag 5 others!
Contents of my current purse:
*Wallet ~ I know some of you actually empty this for this tag as well. Not me! It is way too full of money! I wouldn't have enough room for the photo! Ha ha! Maybe we need a separate wallet tag. But it is full of lots of other stuff...coupons, gift certificates, receipts, credit cards, photos, lots of change, & a few greenbacks.
*Wet wipes ~ you can NEVER have enough of these!
*Kleenex ~ ditto
*3 different kinds of lotion - yes I live in the desert
*Notebook ~ full of all those things I don't want to forget
*Post it Notes ~ you never know when you are going to need to leave a note on someone's car
*2 pens ~ Wow! I didn't think I even had one in there. I know I can never find one when I need it!
*1 lipstick
*1 lime flavored lip gloss
*Mirror ~ needed for the lipstick and gloss of course
*Mini hair spray
*3 mini perfume bottles
*Hollister cologne sample card ~ got this for Sky but forgot to give it to him
*Mini dental floss ~ this comes in handy for oh so many things when you are a mother of boys!
*2 toothpicks ~ in case I can't find the floss
*2 stray receipts ~ these should be in my wallet
*1 scrapbook board card for Valentine's day I made ~ oops, it got left in here
*1 lone stray button ~ yeah, yeah, I know it belongs on some button less article of clothing I forgot about (and I just put it back in my purse!)
*Pedometer ~ I know, not sure why it's in my purse either!
*4 gum packets ~ my fav Orbit Sweet Mint, Extra Winterfresh, Quench Gum for running & some other free sample
*Valentine candy ♥hearts♥
*4 mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cups ~ my addiction I can't live without! ♥
*3/4 of the way eaten bag of Boston Baked Beans
*Other misc treats ~ mini Kit Kat, Sours, mints, & 2 chocolate lips....mmuwah! I always need a chocolate stash in case I see Jaida or Logan! (it's true, honest!)
*Hidden pocket inside purse ~ "unmentionables"

Here's my very cute (current) purse...if I do say so myself. It is made from authentic purple alligator skin. Yes, didn't you know there are really purple alligators? I think they live somewhere real foreign, like in a place none of us would have ever heard of. They are fast becoming extinct. I think I may have the only purse left on the planet made from one.

I tag: Jacquie, Breanne, Jody, Chelsea, and Yvonne!

I've been tagged by Chelsea!

Thanks for the "tag", I'll get right on it! About the "family" sign on my blog. I'm ashamed to admit it but I helped myself to it from another blog and put it in my paint program and added our names and did a few things to make it more personal. Is that bad? You have the cutest blog ever with so many fun things! I love checking it every day!
