I have been TAGGED!! {I'm IT}

So, my dear Leanne "tagged" me while I was DC. What a sweet girl she is;)...Here ya' go...

1. What is your all-time favorite movie (the one that you can watch over and over, when just hearing it in the back ground is enough to imagine exactly what is happening on the screen)? 




I seriously have dozens of favorite movies...I'm a movie kind of gal. But the first one that came to mind is "St. Elmo's Fire". The first time I saw it I was in college at Northwest Missouri State University. They actually showed it on campus in the Horace Mann Auditorium. I was in love with Rob Lowe...hair and all. And I always thought of myself like Jules {Demi Moore's character}. A few years ago I bought the DVD and have since worn it out. I have probably watched it 25 times or more.  A close second is "50 First Dates". It never gets old!!! LoVE it!:)


2. Tell me about one Halloween costume you remember wearing as a child.

 
I was in the first grade and I was a witch. I wore a black cape and  one of those plastic masks from the 70's with an elastic string on the back. Probably the reason I remember it so well is not because of the costume but because it was the  one time my Dad got to take me {he usually worked}

3. Why did you start blogging? 



I LOVE writing. All my life I have kept a journal. Seriously...it is an obsession of mine:) I started out with a website first. Yeah, I don't talk about it much here {still painful, because I loved my site} but I owned an on-line business called "Scrapwords". A few of my readers today are from my site. Love you girls;)  Anyway, I wasn't able to keep it running {finances} and I missed the creative outlet it gave me. So I decided to write a blog. I had 2 before finding my place here at Words of Me Project. This is home:)


4. What makes you happy?  



Sooooo many things!!! My family, going to the movies, a good day at church, my doggie Gizmo, comments on here, knowing I've helped and inspired someone, a good book, creating, reading your blogs, the list goes on and on!!!!


5. If you were able to go back in time, where would you go and why? 



I would go back and spend more time with my Dad and Grandma. I miss them both so much. I would listen to their stories and WRITE THEM DOWN!!!


6. What was the last thing you bought at the grocery store? 



Plums, bananas, milk, orange juice, frozen lean cuisine meals and lettuce.



7. How do you take your coffee? (If you don’t drink coffee … wait, let me get a handle on that … YOU DON’T DRINK COFFEE??? Ok, if you don’t drink coffee, then what is your favorite beverage?)



This is a fun one!! I used to own a coffee shop for 4 years. {yes, I have tried out many business's!!} I LOVED coffee!! Black with real half and half. Soooo yummy!! I don't drink it anymore...I've replaced it with Diet Cokes with Lime from Sonic. It's a daily addiction!!

8. Brag a little . . . tell me about a recent RAK (random act of kindness) that you took part in.


I love surprising people...one of my favorites happened a few months ago. It was a girl from church...she has been ill for quite some time and doesn't get out much. It was her 20th birthday. On a whim I jumped in my truck, rushed over to her house and gave her a big hug and homemade card. She was sooo happy and I felt good knowing I had made her day a bit happier:)




Thanks, Leanne for these very fun questions...it's my turn to "tag" 6 blogs with 8 questions. Here goes....








Here are your questions....

1.  What one book has impacted you the most?

2.  What do you wear most days? I live in comfortable jeans and tees with silly sayings. I would love to hear what you spend your days in!

3.  What is your favorite snack?

4.  You have just won the biggest prize on a game show. What game show is it? Why?

5.  You always look at life with the glass.......? Why?

6.  Favorite movie. You know the one you can watch over and over and never get tired of?

7. What town did you grow up in?

8.  Do you have a pet? If so what and what is their name?

Thanks for playing along, girls!!!
