Can You Come Out And Play?

Alyson over at sent me this challenge and I thought it looked like fun, so I’m playing along.  I hope you will, too.  😉

  • You must post these rules.
  • Each person must post 11 things about him/herself on their blog.
  • Answer the questions the “tagger” listed for you in their post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
  • Choose 11 people to tag and link to them in the post.
  • Let each blogger know that you have tagged them.

So here goes:

11 things about myself:

1.  I have moved about twenty-two times, lived in about thirteen different cities, and lived in five different states, visited one other country, and only lived in the USA.
2.  One breed of dog I’ve always wanted in my family is a border collie, but haven’t had one, yet, although I’ve befriended a couple.
3.  I may be a southern girl, but I hope to one day live further north, closer to the mountains again and with snow in the winters.  LOVE rocks and mountains and snow!
4.  One of my favorite flowers is gladiolus.
5.  To hear crickets chirping at night is music to my ears.
6.  I so enjoy waking to the sound of the rooster crowing across the road or birds singing out my window, and not my alarm clock!
7.  I love waking to my baby kissing me, although I’m usually the first one up.
8.  My favourite color is green.
9.  I am my own worst enemy.  See self sabotage.
10. One of my favorite things is taking pictures.
11. Writing is one of my favorite things when I’m not busy sabotaging my efforts.

Here are the questions I was asked: (with my answers)

1. What do you enjoy about blogging?  Many things.  I feel I can be myself, just silly ole me, express myself, and share my soul (a little or a lot, depending on my mood), perhaps because I love writing, typing, photography, and making new friends with like-minded people who share some of my same interests.  It’s just nice to find folks who have things in common with you, share some of your same feelings, and are so supportive and caring.  It makes the world seem a little smaller.  And it’s nice to know you’re never alone.  There are many interesting people out there and I’ve met a few in the blogging community, who now I’m blessed to call friends.
2. What is the last website you bookmarked?  Seriously?  Okay, you asked. = Mudroom Locker Systems (got to have options)
3. What is your favorite flavor of ice-cream?  Chocolate!!! 
4. What is the ringer sound on your mobile phone?  Firefly by Owl City
5. Who is the celebrity you would most like to meet and why?  Ian Somerhalder.  Just to look into those beautiful blues and smooch those delicious lips of his.  Oh my!  Excuse me while I wipe off the drool.  😉  He makes me swoon!  Hey, a girl can dream, right?
6. If you could have lived during another time in history, what time would that have been and why?  The days that Jesus walked the Earth.  To have met Him, to have touched Him, to have known Him on a more personal level – how awesome would that have been?!  Although, I’m happy to live in this time in history, too.  I actually wouldn’t change a thing.
7. What would be your favorite gift to receive?  Well, I received my favorite gift yesterday = A job!  So, now, it would be a Canon EOS 5D Mark II – awesomist camera in the whole stinkin’ world!  
8. How many hours per day do you spend on the computer?  Wow, tough one.  An hour to blog, an hour to check on my friends’ blogs, an hour or two to write?  So maybe anywhere from two to four hours?  Unless it’s been an extremely eventful day, in which case, I’d have to say ten to fifteen minutes, like last night.
9. What would be your favorite meal in a restaurant?  Easy one.  Chicken Picatta.  Love it!  Oh, unless it’s Saltgrass Steakhouse, which then, of course, would be their fine filet with either garlic butter or blue cheese butter, house salad with their homemade blue cheese dressing and homemade croutons, and their awesome cheesecake!!  Again, excuse me as I wipe the drool from my chin.  ;)’  Saltgrass is the best restaurant EVER!
10. If you had to describe your blog in six words – what would they be?  Finding beauty, self-expression, making friends.
11. What book have you read recently that you would recommend to others?  Have read a few, but the best, by far, that still resonates within my soul, is The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren.  (It sort of makes the Bible more user-friendly.)

And here are the blogs I am tagging – Some of these bloggers, I’ve come to know and am blessed to call friends.  Some of you are new to me and I’d like to get to know you better. 

1.  in tuit

2.  Colline’s Blog

3.  Gerry’s Space

4.  Sonel’s Corner  (yes, I know you tagged me with another one)  😉  Please don’t shoot me…with that rubber band!?  (I’ll let you get by with just answering the questions, k?  And telling us 11 random things about yourself?)

6.  Makes me Wander

7.  Stopping the Wind

8.  Project 365 Challenge

9.  Hearing His Voice

10.  Wise Counsel

11.   Writing From The Edge

And here are their questions:

1.  What is one of your favorite memories as a child (from infancy to about age twelve, or as early as you can remember)?
2.  What gives you peace, rest and calmness?
3.  If you could change anything about your past, would you, what would it be, and why would you change it?
4.  What three things give you the most happiness in your life today (can be anything, actions, people, etc. – can be more than three)?
5.  If you could go anywhere in the world to visit or vacation, where would that be?
6.  If you could have any gift, what would it be?
7.  What is your favorite type of movie (comedy, romance, action, drama, family, horror, tear-jerker, etc.)?
8.  If you had a free day to do anything you wanted within that 24 hours, what would you do?
9.  What’s your favorite?  Sweet or salty?
10.  If you could describe yourself or your blog with 11 words, what would they be (separate words, a sentence, phrases, poem, etc.)?
11.  If you could give a message that would reach every person around the globe, what message would that be (this can be as short or long as you wish)?

Have fun!

And have an awesomely beautiful day, y’all!  *hug*

    LOL! Here we go again! hehehe. I’ve created a monster! Help! 😛
    So, you just want me to answer questions … well, just because it’s you, I will play along and make you happy. Thanks for the tag once again sweetie. Yeah, I also think it will be best not to tag anyone else otherwise I will be walking around with my head under my arm like the headless horseman..hehe. If you don’t mind, I will just answer your questions as I don’t think everyone out there is so interested in me that they would want to know 11 random things about myself and come to think of it, I can’t think of 2 random things about myself at this stage and now you want 11! LOL! Fat chance..hee hee

    Thanks for letting us know a little more about you again. You are such a sweet and loving person. Who wouldn’t want to know you?


    • Haha! *squeal* I thought I felt a rubber band pop off my arm. That was you, huh?

      Oh, I bet there’s tons of interesting things about yourself you could come up with. You are a most interesting person, and I think everyone would be pleased to know you better. 😉 You are a very special person.

      *big squishy hug*

      Ya made my eyes tear up with your sweet words. :,)


      • Sonel says:

        hee hee, yeah that was me and it was only a soft pop..hehehehe

        Nah, I am the most boring person you have ever seen. I am a real house-hen, don’t like going out except for the daily walks and then I don’t even want to see people or talk to them. I just want to be alone with Simba and nature and then I would come back home, clean and de-clutter and then I’ll park myself in front of my pc and do my thing..hehehe..and that’s it. See? LOL! But thanks sweetie, you make me feel special because you are so special and I thank you for that.

        *big squishy hug* back

        Now don’t you make us both teary. LOL! 😛


      • U so funny! 😉 Oh, I don’t think you’re boring at all. I actually like to be at home more than any other place, as well. I love to get out and see nature, play with the furry babies, and get that fresh air and a little sun on my cheeks (if there is any out there to be had). I like mostly being with Hallie and Mama and either at home, or on a roadtrip. We love to see the country, the mountains, the beauty of it all.

        Hey, if you love decluttering, you are welcome to come over and work on my house anytime. Yeah, we could use a bit of decluttering, although it’s not too bad. Oh, how I do miss having the free time in front of the pc (but I’m sure not complaining about having a job, because I’m so happy to have landed this one). Now, with work, and selling girl scout cookies, etc., it’s taking most of my free time that I had before, but I’m trying to squeeze in time to post, and now to try to catch up a little with my peeps, like you.

        *squish* 😉


  2. […] over at tagged me in this challenge and because I like doing fun things, I accepted.   Thankfully she agreed to only let me answer […]

    Absolutely wonderful Blog!!!


  4. ferragudofan says:

    thank you for joining in – now that I feel that I know a little more about you and your blog!
    congrats on the new job too!
    and I love your quote that your blogging makes the world feel a little smaller – that’s lovely!
    happy blogging


    • My pleasure, Alyson. Just took me a little while. 😉 Oh, and thanks on the congrats. Been a long time comin’ – been lookin’ for a job better than a year! Girl, if I ain’t got patience, I don’t know what I do have. (I am actually educated, so please excuse my bad grammar. I just type like I talk, is all.) Gaining this big phat job feels like I lost 100 pounds! I don’t need to lose that much, but it is nice to “feel” lighter. 😉 I’ve met so many interesting, loving, sweet, funny, intelligent people just from blogging, and it really does shrink the world a bit. I know some of these people are on the other side of the world, but it just feels like they are down the road, ya know? It’s pretty cool. When ya get to know people, they start feelin’ like family. 😉

  6. Thank you! Getting my list ready!
