ME Revealed...

So, in honor of my first Blogoversary, I opened myself up for questions from you all. I didn't get nearly the participation I thought I would, but that's okay. I will answer the questions that were posed by you all. So, without further ado...here is ME REVEALED!

Laura over @ The Horton Family asked:
How did you and your husband meet? Well, let me see...long or short version??? Okay, I'll give you the semi-condensed version. Brian was in NC, and I was in GA. We were both sitting in our respective homes watching some news show (think Dateline, 20/20, etc), and they were featuring online dating sites. We both visited said site and created a profile for kicks and giggles. Honestly...I thought nothing of it. Well, somehow he found my profile and contacted me (at least I think he made the first move). We began talking on the phone, and then we agreed to meet in person. So, he drove down to GA, and we met in person at a local Kroger (in the ice cream aisle). LOL! And -- the rest is history.

Where did you go to school? I went to college at Georgia Southwestern College in Americus, GA. It's the same college attended by Jimmy Carter. :)

Favorite place to vacay? As a family, we've vacationed in Orlando, Myrtle Beach, and the North Georgia Mountains. Of all of those, Myrtle Beach was my favorite. We liked it so much that we're going back again this summer. Who knows...we might just make it an annual vacay spot. We'll see! :) Thanks Laura for asking me those questions.

JD over @ Tumbleweed Trails asked:
When you've reached beyond the years of "Boogers and Screams" what would you like your blog header to read? This is a tough question to answer. I even consulted with Brian about it because he's the one that came up with Boogers, Screams, Headaches, and Dreams. Off the top of his head he said "Bruises and Cuts, Loose Teeth, and Small Buts". I, however, do not like it at all. LOL! Honestly, it will depend on what our two boys are "into" at that point in time. I have a feeling it may have something to do with all things outdoors (sports, hunting, fishing, etc). So, stay tuned...and I'm open to suggestions. LOL! Thanks JD for taking the time to ask a thought-provoking question.

Semi-Slacker Mom @ Confessions of a Semi-Slacker Mom asked:
Since I know you pretty well, what was your favorite thing when you did Pampered Chef? Well duh...the discount. LOL! No, I really enjoyed the whole "party" aspect, and it made me develop a love for cooking. All the freebies were nice, too. Thanks Semi-Slacker Mom (yes, I know your name...still not sure if you want it out loud for the world to see...lol) for asking me a question even though we know each other IRL. :)

devri @ The Naulu Tribe asked:
What do you want to be when you grow up, ya know, when the kids move out! Hmmm...well, right now, I don't want to think about my boys moving out. That makes me a bit sad (okay, maybe a bit happy at times). :) Honestly, I think I'd love to just be able to travel with Brian. We try to do as much as we can now, but when the boys are older and out of the house, well, it would be easier to just pack up and go somewhere. So, I think I'll choose to be a wanderer. :) Thanks Devri for asking a really good question...made me think a bit. :)

So, there you have it...ME REVEALED! I hope you all gained a little bit more insight on who I am and what I'm about. :) And -- if not, well, ask me something else. Heck...I'll tell ya anything if you'll listen. :)

OMGosh! That is too funny how you met your man! I had NO idea THAT was coming.....interesting!

Mighty M said...

I like those questions (and answers). I love the way you met your hubby. It's so strange how life works. If one of you hadn't watched that show, or hadn't done the online profile you might never have met! Congrats again on your blogging anniversary!

Michelle said...

Thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself. It's always fun learning about our fellow bloggers. I love the story how you and your husband met. Very cool! Thanks for stopping by.

More and more people are meeting that way! (including my daughter and her guy) :)

Tumbleweed Trails said...

Yay to Myrtle Beach! That is one of my all time fav. places along with Tybee Island (not sure if spelled correctly) and Savannah GA. I was stationed in Augusta GA and fell in love with all things East of there in the late 80's early 90/s. yup, I've aged since then. lol

Bruises and Cuts, Loose Teeth and small Butts sounds good to me. Ah, yes sports themed would be grand especailly baseball. I like sports and butts....oops sorry did I say that? Okay, I'll rephrase that. I like Uniforms. Hope this is moderated.
