Happy Friday

A big thank you to Jessica at Lavender and Lilies for The Stylish Blogger Award.


Now I have to tell you seven things about myself...are you tired of hearing about me? Hang in there, this won't take long..

1. I spent my junior year of college in England. (Have I told you that before? I can't remember and I think it makes me sound more interesting than I am)

2. I love boiled peanuts (classy, I know).

3. I used to get homesick as a kid. Truthfully, I still do. On my last trip to Atlanta I tried to convince my husband to come get me. He wouldn't.

4. I don't like crowds.

5. I don't like fancy restaurants.

6. And I especially don't like poetry. (So if you want to torture me, take me to a fancy, crowded restaurant and read me a poem. Hell in a nutshell.)

7. But I do like to take naps. Sure it's hard to sleep with a 3 year old poking you in the eye every five minutes, but I do what I can.


Enough about me. What about you? Any plans for the weekend? If you're not busy Friday night stop by The Eclectic. As part of Fourth Friday, Randy will be serving wine and cheese from 6-9.

  2. Glad you finally wrote 7 things about yourself! The England thing sounds vaguely familiar, and yes, it does make you more interesting. And, I couldn't agree more about poetry. Not my scene. Glad you shared!

    Wish I could come to the wine & cheese party and peruse your goodies!

  3. Great list Sissy. Sadly I still get homesick too and I could eat Boiled Peanuts all day. They are salty goodness and paired with an ice cold Coke there is nothing better. I am thinking I might have that for breakfast now. One of the joys of living in the South, there is a boiled peanut stand at our grocery store, gotta love it!

  11. Lord I feel the same way about #6. Add loud to that and I am probably going to be rude to someone.

  12. Went to the Flea with Kathy today, ask her about that super duper mirror she saw and the french desk and chair and convince her she must buy it Now!

    And boiled peanuts are the sh*t, didn't even know there was such a thing till I moved to Nashville.

  17. Great list on this post, Sissy.
    So fits you--fun and prissy.

    You like grody boiled peanuts,
    I like rhymed lines with beatniks.

    But we both like a pretty well-designed chair
    So despite the differences, well we'll fare.

    (I'm a blogger, not a poet...)

    Ha! :)

  20. LOL! I'm pretty sure we're the same person (minus England...sadly). I am new to your blog and I love it! It's great to read about someone that has similar tastes and loves in life. Thank you.
