Random Meme
Oh Yeah!! I am one of the nearly 1000 women all over bloggityville who want a chance at this fine-lookin' vacuum. So, if you want to add your name to the ever-increasingly large group of hopefuls, rush right on over to 5 Minutes for Moms. They are hosting this extremely cool contest, and you could try to win, too, (even tho' I know I am going to win). Go right on over there . . . then come right back over here and read my little Meme about little, ole me.


1. What time did you get up this morning? 6:45 am or so. That's when my alarm was set.

Mexican all the way. Give me a bowl of chips, a gallon of salsa, and something yummy stuffed with cheese and chicken -- I may not come up for air for at least an hour.

8. What foods do you dislike? Tuna, watermelon, and beef liver -- well, liver of all sorts really -- organ meat=ick.

16. Where would you want to retire?
Retire, who's going to retire? I plan to follow this motto:

"Life is not a journey to the grave with
the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside,
totally worn out & proclaiming
“Wow, What a Ride!” Author unknown

17. Favorite time of day? Right before sunset. God paints the sky so brilliantly then.

23. Pedicure or manicure?
Manicure is easier for me to sit for, but I liked how my toes look after a pedicure.

38. What are you listening to right now? my daughters, cooking up a "storm" in the kitchen.

39. What is your favorite color? any shade of pink but mauve.

not sure, I did it in several installments.

Both. It's really a tie between chai and French vanilla coffee. Also a big, big fan of Kona. I am thrilled I found some at T.J. Maxx of all places.

45. Do you tan easily or burn easily?
Burn, baby, burn. Pink is my favorite color, but I've spent many summers red.

I do, about every 8-10 weeks or so, depending on the budget.

47. What was the first car you ever purchased without the help of your parents?
A 1989 Ford Tempo named Taylor. Does the term "lemon" mean anything to you?

48. What is your most dreaded household chore?
Cleaning bathrooms. Folding laundry.

That's so funny -- my SIL just pointed out to me this weekend that she loves the same motto you love in point number 16. She showed me a plaque with it in a cataloge!

"tea". That was very clever. :v)

You and I are actually quite a bit alike! Except I can't believe someone out there does not like watermelon.

Hello, Peach Marie....(LOL)

I'm with you, Girl. Blue sapphires. Beautiful and they go so well with jeans. And I don't think I need to tell you how I feel about the beach. I swear, I'm ready to talk to Rob about the logistics of just hauling in 50,000 tons of sand and a lot of water because the beach is such a pipe dream for me, out here in the desert. But my heart is at the beach. Sigh.....

I totally stopped doing the credit card thing years ago. Scary. Debit card works for me because if I don't have the money for it, I probably shouldn't be buying it.

Real Simple is my second Bible. It really is. It's just a great magazine for anyone who's trying to run a house without losing her mind or her retirement fund. My all.time.favorite magazine.

I loved your response to this meme. A lot. :-)

You are going to be soooo disappointed when I win that Dyson.

That commenter above with the catchy name of 'Ask'? Uh huh. That's me. Chilihead.
