Now for the 7 Things about Us:

Since there are two people behind this blog, we thought we would do the first one together, and then we will each do three.

1)      Together we make up a crazy, funny, mother – daughter team, (Gabriella and Veronica) ready to take on the world.   Although Veronica is the mom, half the time she is more like the teenager.  We takes turns and switch roles sometimes.

Ok here are Gabriella’s three:

2)      When I was 14 I had my tonsils removed.  They said there was only a one percent chance that something could go wrong.  Apparently I was that one percent.  Two surgeries, a lot of popsicles, and a near death experience later, I’m fine.   I can still sing with the radio at the top of my lungs.

3)      I am 50% Italian.  My father and his family were born in Italy. Ciao!

4)      I love The Wizard of Oz (come on, who doesn’t?) and I even played the Scarecrow in a play once.

Now for Veronica’s three:

5)      I have two little permanent holes on my forehead that have been there for years.  We had bought some pastries to eat later in the day, but I wanted to sneak a bite.  I had the fork in my hand and was about to take a tiny little bite when someone walked into the kitchen.  I jumped, flung the fork up in the air and it landed in my forehead.

6)      I have been told I am nosey.  I guess I can’t disagree.  I like to know everything that is going on.

7)      If you see pics of me in rainbow eye shadow and leg warmers, it isn’t an 80’s costume.  I was actually there, in all my 80’s teenage glory.

If you have already been nominated for this or are not interested, please do not feel any pressure whatsoever to participate in this award.  Just think of it as us saying that we appreciate you and enjoy your blog!
