Memory Swap


Here's a really fun tag that I saw on both Suzie and Natalie's blogs today:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn’t matter if you knew me a little or a lot, if we’ve actually met in person or not, anything you remember about me!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. If you don’t want to play on your blog, or if you don’t have a blog, I’ll leave my memory of you in my comments.

So...dig through your past and think about you and me, me and you. Oh, and unlike Natalie, I do embarass easily, so don't write anything too humiliating:) Pretty please! Lets think of nice warm fuzzy memories, shall we?... Ok,ok, ok I won't be such a wimp. Just do it. If you've got something on me, just say it. Just remember I'll be telling a memory about you too. . .:) Oh, and everyone reading this tag is tagged-you know you wanna do it! I think this is one of the funnest tags I've come across yet!

I have been blogging all day and was about to quit when I read this post. How could I not respond to my Holly Blog Buddy award winner??

So I went back all the way back to March 8th I think and read all your comments on all of my blogs since we found each other. You are so sweet. How can I pick a favorite memory when you've left such nice comments on every post of mine? I guess if I have to pick I will say that I love the way you uplifted me when I was so down about the way some of my students treated me....or the tender way you responded to my stories about Lyle.

You have touched my heart and I love you.

Oh, I just read Joey's comment. He is as sweet as you are.

I remember when you went to the airport with me to pick up my sister. The pictures from that evening still make me laugh. I love that we can be silly together. :)

Jori said...

Awww Joey is sweet. Ummm my favorites are your late night trips to Walmart and the McDonalds Sundae incident. You are always hilarious Holly! So glad we "met":)

Jan said...

I can't say that I have a specific one -- I just remember being so glad you were in nursery with my little Maya because I knew she was loved and cared for in a really special way. You are so tender with the little ones. But I loved it most when they moved you into Primary 'cause then I got to see you every Sunday -- and you always smiled at me, even when I was doing something really dorky as the chorister. Love you, Holly!

Along the same lines of what Joey has remembered. I remember the night he got confirmation that you were the "one". He came into our bedroom plopped (sp)himself onto our bed and said "she's the one mom" and I was are you sure? and he said "yup, she's the one". Sooo let's just say and now you know the rest of the story......

I remember that CRAZY party we had a few weeks back with all the chocolate. Remember Holly? I could barely zip my pants the next day.

Mindi said...

what i remember about you is that you were one of my first "texas people" to leave a comment and i was PSYCHED that someone from the lone star state actually cared !!!!
then once i started stalking you, i realized that we had to be. especially after the photo of the doll head (or was it foot) in the parking lot of 6 flags and your one man assault on mcdonalds!!
love ya holly!!

Amber said...

I haven't known you very long--but we already share memories--my fav. is the cocunut bikinni dancers--didn't you say you had one of those!! :) (good laughs) Can't wait to get to know you better and make more memories.

hoLLy said...

yes, i have a coconut bikini! thanks to my cousins that gave it to me for my bridal/bachelorette party:) they had me wear it(over my shirt of course) during the whole party. they loved embarassing me that night:)

so, yep i have a coconut bikini as a keepsake from that lovely evening. i like to wear it while i clean the house and the kids are sleeping(TOTALLY kidding!)

Tara D said...

There are just so many to choose from. I can't decide which one I should comment on, but I guess I have to. So here goes, I remember when we were little and decided to go skinny-dipping in our pool one day. What rebels we were! You said you had to go inside to "use the restroom", but instead stole my swimsuit and ran inside with it. Niiiice

Patty said...

Of course being your mother and all, I have sooo.... many memories but since I have to choose,I have fond memories of us playing board games late at night and laughing histerically. You really know how to make me laugh. Good Times!!

hoLLy said...

tara-lol. i was such an awesome sister:) mom-i love to make you laugh as much as you love to laugh. sorry i make you laugh a little too hard sometimes. . .he he.

Suzie said...

My first memory I have of you is that you had some awesomely mad comment skillz.
I noticed on other's blogs how clever, kind & witty you were and had to check out your blog.

I then left a comment on yours and you immediately returned the favor.

I have thoroughly loved your daily posts for a few reasons.
1. you clearly love your hubby, children and your life
2. you are positive & inspiring
3. see #1.

Holly Holly Holly how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
1. I love that I'm your #1 Lover (not in a gay way).
2. Our "talks". Never knew how much fun it was to talk about everyone's bedroom secrets.
3. Celebrating a birthday at Schlotsky's Deli.
4.Visiting in "budaful" Buda, Texas.
5. Trying to go see Erica in the hospital after she had Ryder.
6. The cute clothes from Old Navy that you got for my kids.
And finally, my most favorite Holly memory is:
7. When you came and saw me at Drs. Regional Hosptial when I had Avery!

I love what a great mother you are to your girls and I'll never forget the letter you wrote to McDonalds because you didn't get enough chocolate.
