I love blog hops!

I will be linking up with Dollycas's Thoughts for her fun meme:

Each Thursday I will post 3 questions for you to answer 
that you can copy and post on your blog with your answers. 
You don’t have to be a blogger to participate either. I will be using a Linky List for the blogs to use to participate and follow each other around to get to know each other, but if you are not a blogger just answer the questions in the comment section following the post on your favorite blog. Please feel free to click on the links and visit other blogs too.  

This way we not only get to know other bloggers, 
we get to know our followers too.
I am really excited about this meme 
and hope many more people will join the fun!!!!!

Are you interested?


1. When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?

The only thing I ever wanted to be was a MOMMY!  I can honestly say,  I did not have any grand aspirations for a career. My Grannie wanted me to be a nurse because she had been a midwife on the reservation. Unfortunately, I was a candy striper, during high school, and the hospital smells turned me off on nursing!
I was content being a MOMMY!

My brood, minus the beauty in the blue dress. The bride is my sweet DIL!
This picture was taken one year before my Birth daughter found me!

2. Did you go to college?
Yes, I went to College when most of my kiddo's were in high school. Boy was that a challenge!  My middle two graduated from high school the year I graduated from college. My Grannie did not live to see me graduate but I know she was looking down from above!
Yep, I am a nurse!

3. Do you attend your high school or college reunions?

The first reunion I attended was in 2009, my 40th High School Reunion!
I was not in the in-crowd during high school but I had a large group of friends. Unfortunately, many of those friends did not attend the reunion.

They had all been before and swore they would never go back. I, on the other hand,  wanted to experience a high school reunion. When I heard about the 40th, I signed up and added Hubby to the list.  

Actually, we had a pretty good time. The Friday night cocktail mixer was so much fun and I reconnected with many people from my grade school. 
If we go again, I think we would skip the dinner dance. Way too expensive for what was served. I would rather go out for a nice dinner as some of my classmates did. 

I believe the next reunion will be in 2014. Will I go, that remains to be seen. I will use any excuse to go back to Phoenix!

Two of my buddies from grade school!
Hard to believe it had been so long since I had seen these friends!

Hope you have a great Weekend!


  1. Being a MOMMY is the best job ever but it is really neat that you did become a nurse. What a beautiful family.

  2. Hi!
    Looks like you made a good mommy. Being a nurse is awesome. Two of my sisters are nursed. Have a great day!

  3. My mom went back to college and finished while we were in high school. When she got her Master's degree, I was in undergraduate school at the same college!

  4. My 35th is coming up in July. It'll be the first I've attended. It seems everyone is more interested in actually seeing each other this time--as opposed to worrying about the size of my house, make of car, etc. At least I hope that's the case. I'll let you know!

  5. I hope you get this, but I haven't had internet for over 2 weeks!!! Just got it back today:) I'm so excited to see you and meet Bill next week!!!The kids were so awesome to give you this gift for Mothers day!! I love and miss you. See you next Friday.
