About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Random Things about Little Old Me...

My friend Robin tagged me!  I need to write 6 random things about myself and then tag 6 other people to do the same.  I am tagging Jessica, Heather, Beth, Rhonda, Roxanne and Sherry.

1. I read things backwards on billboards, signs, etc.  It's a crazy habit.  I don't do this when I read books- just short phrases, snippets of things.  It's amazing how easily I can do it- without even thinking!
2. I love hosting mystery parties and would love to host them at my own bed and breakfast someday.
3. I loved reading "Choose Your Own Adventure" books when I was young.  Did you ever have those?  I have kept them to this day and now Mandy reads them.  They are the best.
4. I think Dr. Phil is an arrogant jerk.
5. I like watching "America's Next Top Model".  It's a guilty pleasure and makes me happy that I never was a model.  You know I was going to be one at one point, right?  lol!   But seriously, I love seeing how some people photograph so beautifully- even though they are not the most attractive in real life.
6. I can curl my tongue.  It's genetic.  Either you can or your can't.  Can you?:)

I too am very excited/concerned about this upcoming election. Although I may not agree with all that Obama stands for (I think he's a little too cocky) I just wanted to let you know I have the official scoop on that anthem thing,(it isn't what you think) I will send it your way later this weekend. I do really like McCain, I think he loves our country and truly wants what's best for our future. I also think Palin could be great for our country also. Hope I'm not getting too political. I like to know the facts even if it's someone I am not too crazy about. Will email that soon.

I agree with the Dr. Phil thing, but I don't care for Oprah, either. Not since she supported Ellen's coming out. I don't care if she supported her or not, but I recall a girl on her show asking how if Oprah is a Christian how she could agree with that and Oprah was very rude and had the girl crying. I think you could be a model, you are beautiful!! Half those girls are not especially pretty in my opinion.
Anyhow, hope you are having a great weekend!!

I think it's a lot of fun to learn snippets about our blog friends and sometimes how much we all have in common!

Your "Dr. Phil" comment gave me a big chuckle ;)

Have a great weekend!

Robin Beck said...

Okay...What Elise wrote I say too. I agree with her. Though I do pray for Oprah and hopes she sees the light someday.
On the Dr. Phil deal, "HOW's that working for you?" Sorry I had to mock the doctor. (you really made me laugh with your dr phil comment!

I cannot curl my tongue but have tried when I was young till it hurt.
I bought a bunch of those "choose your own adventure" books for my friend Karen's son-He loves them.

Survivor starts next week right? Sooo exciting.

Tristan said...

I feel the same about Dr. Phil..WHY is he still on T.V.!!

cherry said...

Ok we have some things in common. I LOVED choose your own adventure stories...my mom got rid of them all. I have been lucky enough to find a few here and there at garage sales for my son. My fave one ws the haunted house one it had a black cat on the front cover. I also think Dr. Phil is a jerk too. AND I love black/white pictures...have many of my ancestors..I love your pumpkin with buttons toooooooo cute. cherry
