Meet Me on Monday!

Welcome to the 29th 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.  Do you have any New Year's resolutions?
2.  What food item are you craving right now?
3.  When is your birthday?

My Answers!

3.  My Birthday is October 23rd..and next year will be the big S*I*X Oh.. My

I hope I am never too old to party
4. One hour ago we were eating dinner. Earlier, the dear Hubby said her did not want to eat. So, by the time he decided he wanted something, i was out of the mood to cook. Luckily, we had some leftovers in the fridge.

Not my leftovers..I am not that organized.

5. The last meal I cooked was last night, we had baked Talapia and veggies. 

Easy, quick dinner.



  1. Thats a lovely photo at the top of your blog (although I did like the snowpeople). I don't think anyone can be that organised with leftovers can they? (crikey I hope not, that would really put me to shame!)

  2. `Wish I could have been at your house for dinner last night. I love Talapia.
    I would have never guested you were going to be sixty. I would have thought 50. You look wonderful.

  3. I have an addiction to M&M's and I tried giving them up and that never worked. And now I will remember your birthday because it is the day after my wedding anniversary.

  4. I am your newest follower!
    Please follow back, I would greatly appreciate it!

  5. We have the same birthday and the same cravings too! I agree with the other commenter I would never have guessed sixty, you look great!!

  6. I love to cook baked talapia and veggies! Oh, if you keep the candy jar next to the computer...LOL

  8. Too bad about the hotel, but looks and sounds like you all made up for that by having fun anyway. We love ballroom dancing, too. Wish we had a group of friends who can 2-step and do West Coast Swing!

  9. I'm so impressed that you are running a marathon. I can't even run around the couch - and I never could. I have never been very athletic but now I kinda wish I had done a little more. About once a day Jackson get's a burst of energy and wants me to chase him around the house ~ I last about three minutes....

  10. Ohhh...I love M&M's. Yummy :)

    I am quite impressed that you would like to get into a marathon. I'm 28 and can't even run around the block without feeling like I am going to pass out.(Horrible I know!) My resolution is to change that and exercise more regularly though. Good luck and very best wishes. xo Marie

  11. Hi Shawn! I'm glad you enjoyed my Cat Chat interview! Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and comment! :)

  12. I think I will usually opt for a bigger basket!

  13. Baked Talapia and veggies sounds like a good idea. The M`& M`s look good too.

  14. I've never heard of Talapia before but it sure does look nice in the photo!
    Have a great week!

  15. We have been finishing up all of our leftovers, well actually they are leftovers that came from my daughters inlaws house.
    Loved reading your answers. Have a great week.

  16. Mmmmm tilapia!!! And run a marathon?? WOW!

  17. Thanks for stopping by. I am now a follower and looking forward to reading more of your posts.

    Have a great week.

  18. What a following you have now!!! I hope I don't get lost in the shuffle:)LOL
    I can't believe you were going to pick the same background! That is so crazy, I thought that only happened with twins! I guess I'm more like you than I thought :) :) :)
    I'm also an M&M holic! I do however, like the peanut ones more. I absolutly love Tilapia, yummy!!!
    Have a great day

  19. How did you know Tilapia is my favorite type fish? Happy New Year girl!!
