Crowning Moments! Blogger Tag!

Jen, over at A Book, A Girl, A Journey, tagged me in a little get-to-know-you game.  So for my Crowning Moments! post, you get to read my answers to a few questions and then find out who I tagged, definitely their "crowning moment"! ☺
1. Do you think you're hot?
Definitely when the temperature outside is above ninety degrees,
 but until then, I am usually on the cold side.. 

2. Upload a picture of the wallpaper you're using at the moment:

Is this a big surprise to

3. When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
As opposed to chicken bone?  Well, I made up a recipe last week
 that I named Malibu Chicken casserole.  It was so yummy!  If
 you want  the recipe, just ask!

4. The songs you listened to recently:
I was just trying to shut it out so that I could concentrate on this
 post!  It is Alvin and the Chipmunks singing "Christmas Don't Be Late."

5. What where you thinking as you were doing this?
I was thinking, "Who says Christmas songs can't play in mid-June? 
 I'm glad the Christmas tree isn't still up!"

6. Do you have nicknames? What are they?
My name is Melanie.  Some people call me "Mel" but mostly I am
 called, "Mom," "Momma," "Hon," and "Babe."

Tag 4 blogger friends:
1. Geoff at
2. Justin at Animals Rock
3. Marlee at Budgeting During College
4. Colleen at A Day in the Life of a Five Foot Mama

Who's listed as #1?
Geoff, a great photographer and friend from way-back-when, 
dedicated to his family, and my special feature blogger this week. 
 He's got an awesome contest going on at his photo blog that I'm 
hoping I win and also has a separate blog that tells all about his 
wonderful family.

How did you get to know #3?
I found her awesome blog and was impressed with her wit and 
humor.  She also gives out some great tips to save money.  She's
 my kinda gal, a real country-girl at heart.  And, she's planning the
 adventure of a lifetime resulting in me living vicariously through her.

How about #4?
This was one of the first blogs I started to follow.  Her commitment
 to raising her family matches mine and I love her excitement when her 
darling little boy reaches all of his milestones.  She is very practically 
minded and looks awesome when she's pregnant!

Leave a Lovey-dovey message for #2.
Justin, you rock!  I love you so much and am so proud of the 
awesome job you do on your blog.  Thanks for being so enthusiastic
 about it and sharing your vast knowledge about animals with us all.
