Beautiful Blogger?

Well, I don't know how "Beautiful" my blog is.  At least to others.  It is to me, because it is filled with what is most important to me in my life!  My family.  So, speaking of family, my daughter Gennifer has presented me with a Beautiful Blogger award, and I am to list 7 random things about myself, and then pass the award to 7 others.  Thank you Gennifer!  However, since my daughter and I share many of the same blogging friends, and she has already tagged 7 of them, I hope she will understand that I have decided to not tag 7 more.  So just my 7 random thoughts.
  1.  I have ZERO, ZILCH, NADA, NO sense of direction!!  I always try to park in the same area at every store I frequent.  
  2. I don't sleep well.  I toss and turn all night, and am always eager to wake up and go have my coffee.
  3. I am a creature of habit.  I don't like to change my schedule or routines. 
  4. I almost never go to Target without buying a Market Pantry brand bag of Peach Rings!!!  
  5. I love Nordstrom if I have to buy something special to wear, but I do not love to shop for clothes.  In fact, some of my favorite stores to shop at are Home Depot and Target. I would much rather shop for things for the house at places like, Tai Pan, Kirkland for Home, Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Pier 1,etc.  I love "stuff" stores.  Clothes are nice, but I am not a clothes horse. And yet, I seem to have a lot.
  6. I love most any and all household chores, EXCEPT unloading the dishwasher.  Weird, I know.
  7. My husband almost never calls me by my given name.

Ahhh, I love the last one, well I hope they are nice names that he's calling you anyway!
So where did Genn get the clothing gene from? :)

Genn said...

So the chain ends here.

That's ok. Thanks for playing along.

Cute post. I liked your random 7. Didn't know that about the peach rings at Target. I'm gonna have to get me some of those.

Home Depot? Really? That's in your top two? I know you like it, I just am suprised that it's in your top two.

Can't wait to hear about the cruise.

Katie said...

Home Depot is one of my favorite too!

I'm dying to see pictures of the Cruise!!!

I got those plates at Macy's for $4 Bucks, yeap $4 dollars total!!!

I'm happy Sean is here too, although he is happy as well, his job is not very desirable these next 8 months ;( I will keep you posted on updates.
Missed ya, glad your back ;)

Katie said...

mmm! Peach Rings. One of my favorites. Second to Sweedish Fish.

Genny, I modified my answer regarding shopping. I don't necessarily place Home Depot or Target in the top two, but it is places LIKE that where I love to shop for house and yard. The shopping gene skipped me and went straight to you. You and Grandma are the shoppers. I HATE to spend a day in the mall! Ick!

deb said...

it never ceases to amaze me how alike we are....lololol......

Debbie said...

Well Kris I knew we had a lot in common, but this confirms it more lol. I have NO sense of direction. Not quite sure where I am most of the time. Drives my family wild. I totally love Nordstroms when I REALLY NEED something to wear, but I don't like to shop for clothes, unless they are for Mel. I LOVE shopping for house gear and love all the same places you do AND unloading that dishwasher is my most hated chore to do. I avoid the dishes sometimes based on the fact it needs to be unloaded, haha However, WHAT is a peach ring??

Maryrose said...

Hi Bunny,
Your back and I am happy to say I knew those things about you except the peach rings of course. What are those...sound good though.
Hope your trip was great and I look forward to some pictures...I'm sure you had a field day with your camera.
I would also like to say I think your blog "is beautiful". If it weren't for you and Genn, then Kristi and I wouldn't even know what a blog was. I enjoy reading and posting on these things so much, so thanks for that.
I shall be checking back for pictures of the cruise. Until then TTFN

so that's where genny gets her sense of directions!!!

i also love nordstrom, and target, and home depot!!

and jason nevers calls me by my name either!

and peach rings, never tried them. maybe i should, but i don't like peach. so maybe i shouldn't.

loved reading these facts!

Kristi said...

I'm laughing about how my Mom called you Bunny. I was trying to remember what it was that Greg calls you all the time. I knew it was a cute little animal of some sort. I'm giggling, that's so cute!

I'm a home decor shopper myself. LOVE all of those stores you mentioned as you already know. If I was a skinny lady I'd like shopping for clothes more, but I never know what to buy for myself. My fashion sense is blah.

Cute post, I love all of these random things about everyone!

Can't wait to see pictures of the cruise!!!

I don't have a good sense of direction either. Jeff could tell you about the time he and I went to Disneyland when he was 8 or 9 and we walked around the parking lot for 2 hours at 10:oo at night looking for my car. I too have to park in the same place at stores I frequent or I'd never find my car.

And what is it about unloading the dishwasher? That was something I ALWAYS made my kids do when they lived at home. Now I'm the only one so that is why I often go days without unloading it.

Fun to learn more about you!
