Monday Hop

I am linking up with java @ Never growing old, i am adding her instructions:

Meet Me on Monday!!
Welcome to the 28th edition of 

"Meet Me On Monday!"
Blogging  is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read  and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is  this person!?"  I know them...but yet I don't know them!  I want  to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great  way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday I will post five get to know you  questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we  can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

"Its a great way to to meet new friends and for others to get to know me Monday at a time!!!" quoted by the Chacogirl!! I will make this SIMPLE and FUN!!!

I  will add a linky so we can follow who participates and get to know them  better!!  Be sure to link the POST and not just your whole blog!


1.  What are your New Year's Eve plans?
2.  How tall are you?
3.  What is your favorite pudding flavor?
4.  What room of the house do you blog the most in?
5.  What is your best physical feature?
My Answers:

1.  We will be joining friends for a night of dancing at the Ramada Hotel in Denver. The night will include meeting for a light dinner then the dancing starts at eight in two ballrooms.  Denver hosts an annual fireworks display at nine, and midnight, which can be seen from the hotel.  The hotel will provide a buffet dinner at ten, followed by champagne toasts at midnight and more dancing. New Years morning there will be a complimentary, full service, breakfast then we will head home for a nap!
Dancing Party
2.  I thought I was 5'3 until I participated in a health fair at work and I measured in at 5'2. Soon, I will be the shortest one in the family!
My oldest daughter
My three younger daughters and my daughter-in-law ( the tallest one)
The grand kiddo's..they will soon be taller than me!

3. I like chocolate pudding the best but it has to have a dollop of whipped cream!

4.  I blog in the office. When we bought our new computer I decided on a desk top (to save $$) and added an iPad to use when Hubby hogs uses the computer.
I would love my office to look like this!
5. This is a hard question..especially the older I get. Many people compliment me on my eyes, others my smile or thick hair.  Because my roots are gray ( get my hair colored tomorrow), today I will say my eyes, which are blue with long lashes!
I have been toying with the idea of letting my hair go gray since meeting a beautiful woman with short, silver colored hair. My Grandmother's hair was silver and was wondering if mine would be too!


  1. Thank you for dropping by Shawn! I think it is okay to be the shortest in the family. Short really totally equals cute. :) Chocolate pudding is definitely best with some yummy whipped cream. That is definitely my way to go though I am still the biggest fan of rice and tapioca. I have a girlfriend who has jet black hair with gray streaks, and if I could look like that, I would be all for letting gray roll in. :) Sadly I don't have jet black hair so they gray I get is just annoying little silvery pains in the tushy. Your New Year's plans sound lovely. Have a blast!

  2. Shawn, I would love my workspace to look like that photo too. It looks so clean & organised!
    Sounds like you will have a great time on New Years!
    Enjoy the rest of your week!

  3. I love your new look blog! Yay! And thanks for sharing these aspects of yourself! I love how your eldest daughter towers over you!! Your family are just lovely!

    Enjoy our new year's celebrations!! Take care

  4. I love your picture at the top! Lovely!

    Your New Years sounds fun. Have a great time!

  5. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Shawn! Love your answers. Two of my three daughters are taller than me--my oldest daughter was the shortest of us all. Have fun dancing the night away. The only dancing I'll be doing will be in my dreams!

  6. Hi, Shawn! I hope your Christmas was marvelous.

    I am only 40+ and getting some gray hair right now. I like the silvery color that ladies have. But my hair is dark, so it will be salt-and-pepper before it goes gray.

    Your daughter is very tall!! I have two tall kids, too.

    Have a happy New Year!

  7. I thought I had commented already...geez, it's the mind that's the first to go I guess!

    I always enjoy your pictures! Your family looks so happy!

    My BFF is 5'2" but that might be with heels. LOL

  8. I was just going to comment on your beautiful office until the disclaimer...You have a lovely family...I think silver hair is beautiful but mine would be silver or white front and top then black in I'll stick with my high and low lights for now..

  9. That is a great header picture of you two! I know you will enjoy your happy dance on New Year's Eve!!!

  10. Ahhh yes...chocolate pudding with a dollop of cool whip. YUM!!

    Enjoy your party and Happy New Year!

  11. Thank you so much for the kind comments on my blog.

    I am your newest follower.

  12. I hope you have a wonderful time on New Year's Eve! Sounds like a blast!

  13. Your New Year's plans sound awesome. I know I am the shortest in the family. I love when women let their hair go gray, I think it's very attractive. I don't have much grey so I can't do it! Have a great week and a Happy New Year!

  14. Shawn, I so enjoyed reading your post answers! I was always the tallest girl in my 5'7" it was not fun...until someone mentioned that models are always tall! That gave me hope as a teenager! LOL

  15. Sounds like you are going to have so much fun for New Years. I can't remember the last time I went dancing (probably prom lol).
