How would people describe your personality? (If they could only use ONE word.) Are they right?

energetic and at the moment NO

What celebrity/celebrities would create a “Star-Struck” feeling if you saw them in real life? Tim McGraw and Brett Favre
Be brave – tell us something very random and weird about yourself. My husband was the football coach, I was the cheerleader….but its lasted 38 years.
Do you have a strong desire to do something you’ve never done? What is it?  Be a Disney Planner or a Buyer for Cracker Barrel

  Movies: Action, Drama

Books: I have never met a book that did not want to come home with me….we are readers….of everything

If you inherited a million dollars, what is the first thing you would do with your money? Give money to families with sickness and make life easier for them….then take the entire family to Disney for at least a month.
THEN take hundreds of little kids that have NEVER been.

If you could live anywhere at all (and take all your loved ones with you), where would you go?I will have to think on this one…I really would just love to travel with them about three weeks out of every month. 

Strange Talent?
I am not very talented.  I can tie hundreds of bows and never look down…

What’s something you consider yourself to be good at?
Sending cards, decorating Christmas trees, planning trips

What is one of your favorite things to catch a whiff of? coffee

When you leave a social gathering, do you wish you had talked more or less
talked less?

If money wasn’t a factor, what stores would you shop in? Probably would not changeTarget, Central Market, Dressin Gaudy (local)
What is your greatest fear? Losing a family member or chronic illness

What is your greatest accomplishment? HANDS DOWN

Raising TWO great kids that are hard workers, great parents and make the world a better place. 

Who is your favorite blogger?

So now you know me….I want to know YOU.

Ahhhhh....I was sitting here with my cup of coffee, enjoying your post and then teared up when I read that you put ME as your favorite blogger. Oh, sweet friend, you touched my heart this morning...big time! Thank you.

Big hugs and much love,

Nezzy said...

I always feel like I get to know someone just a little better after readin' one of these list but I already know what a treasure you are sweetie!

God bless and have a most beautiful day my friend! :o)

Christina said...

I love Cracker Barrel....I want to buy the stuff you buy! : ) hehehehe

Bonnie said...

I too love Christmas music. I think I could listen to it all year long but I don't since my family might get annoyed.

Raising a family is hands down a great accomplishment!

Have a wonderful day!

Patrice said...

I like your choice of favorite blogger. Kat is a lovely person!

I think tying bows while you focus on other things is a wonderful talent.

Linda said...

Hi Teresa...I am so glad that Lynnette is doing this fun blog hop.

First I just wanted to say, I prayed for you and Jack this morning. You guys are on the list. Yup...I am keeping you in my prayers.

You two have a beautiful love story.

You are fun. I know you have had a rough time lately...but I know you are spunky and energetic and fun most of the time. You are a sweet grandma...and I love how involved you are in the kids lives.

I love your talents...you do have many. I love your beautiful trees that you create.

I love your posts...and how they are so real and just come from your heart.

I like Target too and I have been to a place in Branson Mo. called Dressin Guady...is it a chain? It was a fun shop.

I'd like to meet Tim McGraw too...but I love, love his wife Faith Hill too, so I would hope to meet her along with him. And like I said in my post, I like Amy Grant and Vince Gill too and would like to go to one of their concerts...maybe when they do the Christmas one.

Well this is all for now.
Chat with ya later.

Love, Linda

Good to meet you Teresa! Your ease with answering Lynnette's questions made me feel, as if I've known you longer than a mere few seconds. I certainly will be praying for Jack's impending surgery.

Hi Teresa!

I'm dropping by to say Hi!

I would love to go to Disney for a month. How fun!

Kelly @ Sufficient Grace Ministries said...

Loved your list, Teresa! And, the football coach/cheerleader revelation... The lasting 38 years part is what matters isn't it?! =)

Blessings to you...

Love Being A Nonny said...

38 years...good for you! We have 36!

Kat is one of my favorites too. She is the person who really helped me with my blog when I was getting started!

Disney is a love of mine too. Want to take the grands when they get a little older. They are 3, 15 months and three months now.

Have a great weekend!

Jessica said...


Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am looking forward to having a hot cup of coffee and reading more of yours!

God bless you!

I really enjoyed learning more about you. Coffee is something I love to smell and ...drink! You have a generous heart.


Melissa Jagears said...

I'll have to remember to hit you up for some tickets to Disney for my kids when you win that million dollars!

I hope my biggest accomplishment later will be mine as well. Hope these kiddos grow up to be hard workers and great parents.

Thanks for following our blog!
