Thanks so much Paulahttp://tatteredgold.blogspot.com/ for thinking of me for this award. I feel very honored! Those of us that were on Paula's list, we are suppose to share 8 things about ourself that our friends don't know about us. Then pass the award to 8 other Stylish Bloggers!
Well here goes!!!
#1 I'm very shy until I get to know you, then I will talk your head off! When I started kindergarden they literally had to pull me off of my mom, she was going to take me back home with her, but the teacher told her she would be making a big mistake, so I had to stay! Well I had the teacher in tears, I didn't talk to her or anyone the entire year, until after Christmas, and I told my teacher what I got for Christmas and was so proud of myself that I actually talked to her! I forgot to add that I followed my teacher everywhere she went, even when she went to the restroom I would go with her and stand outside the door waiting for her, I know pretty pitiful.
#2 Took piano lessons as a child and didn't want to practice so my Mom made me quit.... but I so wish I would have stuck with it, I would love to know how to play the piano, and still think I might take lessons again one day... It's never to late to learn!
#3 I'm afraid to fly, but was corned by my husband and some of our friends the other night when we all went out to eat... they want me to go on a trip that requires that we fly, and I finally gave in to all their pitiful looks and agreed to fly ( WHAT WAS I THINKING)
#4 I love to watch old shows, such as I Love Lucy, Andy Griffith, Leave it to Beaver, Bewitched, and just all of the funny sitcoms that were showing during that time period, you know the ones! My all time favorite is I LOVE LUCY! I watch it almost every night when I go to bed... usually fall asleep to it. I have them all recorded! "My poor husband, he refuses to watch it anymore"... I watch them over and over and still laugh like it was the first time I ever seen the show! I love these older shows because their clean and wholesome, and just so funny to watch!
#5 I love the water, swimming and boating, but haven't done either in several years!
#6 One of my favorite things to do is to go on home tours... I just love looking at beautifully decorated homes. I often thought that I would love to be a decorator, but I love what I'm doing now too, and ya just can't do it all.
#7 This one is a little embarrassing.... I'm in my 40's and afraid to stay home at night by myself. My husband doesn't hardly ever have to travel due to business, but when he has had to, I get my Mom to come and babysit, I mean spend the night with me! From the first time my Mom told me as a little girl not to talk to strangers, and not to ever go off with strangers, I stuck to her like glue I wouldn't let her out of my site, I guess in my mind I had no ideal that their was actually some bad people in this world.... which horrified me! I guess it has stuck with me even to this day, since she still has to stay with me if I'm by myself at night!
#8 Last thing this is kinda embarrassing too I have OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder! I spend an extra 15 min. leaving the house when I'm going somewhere due to having to go back and check everything to make sure it's all turned off... and lots of the time when I get to the end of my driveway I have to go back and make sure that the Garage door shut, when I know that it did, I just have to recheck it! I pretty much obsessive with a lot of the things I do, weather it be shopping, making purses, or whatever, I would rather say that I'm very passionate about what I do, it sounds better than OCD, but I do go overboard with things, but it's something that I'm working on and trying to do better!
This was the really hard part, to only be able to pass this award on to only 8 friends, because I think that you are all so wonderful, I want to give it to all of you! Be sure to go over and visit with each of them, I know you wont be disappointed! I will have to go to town to our business and link them up, I still can't do it from my computer at home, but hope to have it linked shortly!
