Harvest Party Link Up With Lynnette

This date slipped up on me and I just realized I am a little late... I love Lynnett's blog. When I read about her Harvest Party, I knew that I wanted to be a part. I love reading about other bloggers and knowing more about their lives. I just looked at the MckLinky and see so many new blogs. I plan to visit each one of you soon. ON TO the QUESTIONS!

1. What is your favorite thing to snack on while you're blogging? cheese and crackers
2. What is one thing you wouldn't want to live without? my laptop
3. Beach, Mountains or Farm? THE CITY!
4. What's your least favorite chore/household duty? Unloading the dishwasher.

5. Who do people say you remind them of? The Energizer bunny.....if they only knew how tired I am!
6. Prefer parties and socializing or staying at home with the family? a little of both but really love family time the VERY best !
7. What's your all time favorite movie? We see almost every movie ...we go to the movies often, but I love anything by Tyler Perry. I especially loved "The Diary of a Mad Black Woman"!
8. Do you sleep in your make up or remove it like a good girl every night? REMOVE it EVERY NIGHT!
9. Do you have a hidden talent or a deep desire to learn something that you've never had a chance to learn? What is it? I wish I could dance after watching DWTS
10. What's one strange thing you're really good at? I can tie any kind of bow without ever looking at the ribbon...I can carry on a conversation and tie bows at the same time, never even looking down.
11. What first attracted you to your spouse? The fact that he was a football coach. I had always wanted to marry a coach. At the time, I had no idea I was getting the BEST HUSBAND on the planet! (That's not just my opinion, but all my friends too!)

12. What is something you love to smell? candles
13. Tell something about you that you know irritates people. I ask too many questions! Ask my kids?
14. When you have extra money (HA!) what's the first thing you think to do with it? Take the kids and their families on vacation!
15. Are you a silent laugher or a loud laugher? more a silent, but strange things are funny to me. What makes you laugh the hardest? People watching!
16. Where is your favorite place to shop? For so many years, my friends called me a professional shopper...These days I don't really love shopping...For just a general place, probably Target.
17. What's one thing you'd do more often if you had more time? READ
18. Are you a big spender or frugal? I don't think anyone ever CALLED me FRUGAL.
19. Would you want to be famous? now that you know a little more about me....none of which seems very interesting to me...I look forward to reading more about you...You would learn a lot more about me, just reading my previous post! I have a VERY normal family.
If you are new to my blog, please hop over to my Holiday Blog....Then you will know much more about me...Most bloggers have never heard of anyone that has a Christmas Tree and Holiday Home Decorating business..that has been my business for the past 17 years and this is my year to PAY IT FORWARD. I am excited about sharing tips, tricks and ideas with you. Hopefully it will make your holiday decorating easier and more I love to give things away. So stop by and leave a comment...I will be giving away a FUN HOLIDAY TREAT later this week and every comment from this entire week will go in the can comment as many times as you want to. I am working on a tree post on the tree I did yesterday (yes tree season has already started) and I have some pictures to share. I wish I were much better at explaining techniques in words. That is my biggest challenge on the Christmas blog.

It has been so much fun getting to know so many new friends and read your stories. Universally, we all share the same hopes, dreams, fears, and failures. What fun to share this journey called life with YOU!

I had Bunco at my house last night and I am the only blogger of the bunch. Most of them have never even read a blog. They are all wondering what in the world this BLOG STUFF is all about. I am so glad I joined this special community. Many of you, I feel like I could pick you out in a crowd, without you ever saying a word. I am hoping to meet some of you face to face in the future...You are now a part of my family.



Teresa, I love reading more about you. Hope you are feeling great. Is everyone well there? Blessings, Audrey

The Harvest party has been fun!! I'd love to be able to learn how to dance like they do on DWTS. That would be so neat!

Love Being a Nonny said...

I cannot believe how many things we have in common. Let me just tell you the # of the answers that we have that are EXACTLY alike!!!!!! Here goes: #s 1-8, and 12-19. Seriously, there are only three that are different (9-12)!!!!!!!! We would be BFF's in real life! (Except you go to bed late and sleep late. And I go to bed early and get up early.) Oh well, guess we better keep it a blogging friendship!! :)

Denise said...

This was fun.

A Hint of Home said...

I loved reading your answers and went back to your previous post and cracked up. What a night at outback. Been there done that. Kids and grandkids bring a lot of dimension to the night, don't they. lol
Saw you other blog. Thanks for sharing the tips. Do you make those tassels. I see them on blogs but not sure how they are making them.
Enjoy today!

Becca said...

yummy cheese and crackers! :-) and I love Tyler Perry movies too -- I adore Madea Goes to Jail . . . so funny!

Heart2Heart said...

What a fun way to learn more about you. It's funny about the thing to snack on while blogging. Mine is usually my coffee. It can be dangerous all that mindless munching. Gum chewing keeps that under control.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I love comments, too! I also love staying up too late and looking at new blogs. I don't love trying to wake up in the morning, though. Anyway, thanks for visiting my blog and I really liked your get-to-know-me post! It was a great introduction.

Terra H. said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I loved reading about you and your family. It shows that you love your family greatly. That is awesome; I regard my family to be wonderful and it's great to see someone else who enjoys theirs so immensely as well.

ButterYum said...

Wow... you're a pretty interesting Grammy, aren't you! :)

I laughed out loud when I read your answer to question 3, and I soooo understand what you mean when you answered question 4!!! Why is that? Do we dislike the bending? I don't know, but I'm happy to have the kids do it whenever possible!

PS - I'm heading over to your Christmas Blog... I put up a tree and that's about it. I need some decorating inspiration!

Anita said...

Thanks for your visit and your sweet words on my Halloween Witches table. I have read a few of your posts and I chuckle as I see parallels in your family and mine. Come back and visit me soon.

Live.Love.Eat said...

You know, I don't mind loading the dishwasher but I don't enjoy unloading AT ALL. Maybe because I always seem to have more dishes waiting for me. It's like a waiting list, but for dishes.

Thanks for the blogby!!!!!!

Rebecca said...

It was great to get to know you better!

I totally agree about this blogging community - it is amazing, and people that aren't part of it just don't get it, do they?

Grandma Cyndi said...

How do you find time to read everyone eles's blogs? I follow my daughters, yours, MckMama" and some of my daughter's friends and that takes more time than I should devote to the process. With your crazy business you must run on 3 hours of sleep. Thanks for all your efforts.

2 little Boys said...

Thank your for visiting my blog over at 2 little Boys. Thank you also for appreciating my new look by the Design Girl, its totally me. I enjoyed getting to know you some by reading your post from today and looking through your Christmas blog too. I look forward to coming back for future visits.

Jane In The Jungle said...

Awww....and it's been great getting to know you!

Jackie said...

Hey Teresa!
You and I have so much in common! Oh, and I love "Diary of Mad Black Woman" too! Last Christmas my kids gave me all of his stage plays and movies.......and Madea - Lord have mercy - if you can't laugh with Madea then somethings wrong, honey!
Thanks for taking the time to stop my new blog Fresh Oil Today! Your encouraging comments meant so much!
Sweet Blessings!

Mimmy said...

Teresa - I thoroughly enjoy learning more about you although I already feel that I know you and I have a great deal in common. We both love God, family, Christmas, and having fun. Hopefully we will have a very long time to get to know each other even better.

God Bless,
