10 Things You Now Know About Me ...

Inspired by Karin's post, Ten Things I've Done That You Probably Haven't, I did some thinking and here are the results!

1. While on a TWO day trip to Paris I overslept and missed the Louvre.

2. On our first date, my husband and I hiked in the Redwood trees and picked up trash.

3. My first car was a tan colored Plymouth Champ, and I drove it over rocks and anywhere I could. It was amazing.

4. When in Ireland I hung upside down and kissed the Blarney Stone.

5. I had an underwater birth for my fourth baby.

6. I was proposed to on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean near Half Moon Bay on a clear and gorgeous January day.

7. I went through the Hampton Court Maze in England, successfully!

8. I climbed to the top of a crumbling 1200's Anglo-Norman castle wall that is across from the ruins of Clonmacnois monastic community. (Castle up close.)

9. I was locked in a pitch black prison cell on Alcatraz Island.

10. I stood exactly at Longitude Zero, otherwise known as the Prime Meridian where the world's time starts.

And there you have it!

Kate, I'd so love to go to Ireland! Was it wonderful?

Yes, Kim, it was! There was only one part of it I did not like and that was Dublin. It was dirty and the parks were not clean. I was pretty surprised and hope they've changed things since 1990! Everything else was genuinely magical for me and I will always treasure it.

Great list. I never got to be locked in a black cell when I toured Alcatraz!!!

Do I know how to show a girl a good time or what? To this day I still don't know what prompted the whole trash thing. Didn't we also play a game with finding mushrooms? Truth be told, we probably should've washed our hands earlier in the "date".

The 'shrooms' later prompted me to propose to you on the edge of a cliff!

Coincidence? I think not :)
