Hey Y’ALL!! Welcome to another week of “Doing YOU WELL Wednesday”! Hope you all are doing fabulous! I’m doing something a little new here on my blog today! This came at a great time though, as I wasn’t able to unveil my new blog design yesterday…insert sad face and booos here--->(technical difficulties…ahem, right Mr. Producer, lol). Well, yesterday, June 18th, yours truly…“Prowess and Pearls”, celebrated it’s ONE YEAR BLOGAVERSARY!!!
No big fanfare! I guess I’m treating it like I treat my birthdays…the older I get, the less hoopla(with the exception of my 50th, which will be rolling around in five years)! For that one, there will definitely be a BIG SHINDIG!! LOL! Anyway, as I mentioned, I had to postpone my new blog look for a week! Anyway, come back next week to see my new blog design and a little something for all my lovely blogging friends!
Back to my something new! Well, HOPE over at "Defining Hope" tagged me in the "Old School Blogging- Alphabet Soup", hosted by Elaine and Jennifer (I’m sure you all have heard of it. It's where you go through the alphabets and list facts about yourself). I’m not a big fan of these(I LOVE reading them, however, I'm not a big fan of participating in them), BUT I thought this one would be fun. So Hope, you can credit yourself with getting Lola(that would be me), to let her hair down and have some fun...tehehehe. If you don’t know that much about me, read on to find out more! I promise, you’ll absolutely LOVE me when you’re finished reading, lol!
Don’t forget to link up your post(any that you’d like)! Visit some other blogs in the link up, give some encouragement and love and make some new friends!! Oh, and don’t forget to come back Friday for “Michell’s Weekly Pearl”. I do appreciate each and every one of you! LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!
A. Attached or Single? Attached to the BEST teammate EVER!
B. Best Friend? Umm…my teammate of course! Oh, I have to include my college roomie..."MHFPDYKM", whose birthday happens to be today.
C. Cake or pie? Both, cake(lemon pound cake) and pie(key lime)
D. Day of choice? Sundays of course…WORSHIP with my family and church family and family time afterwards
E. Essential Item? Trident gum and my iPhone. Can’t believe there was a time when cell phones didn’t exist and I actually lived to tell about it! Talk about “roughing it”!
F. Favorite color? Black…I know, I know. That’s a hard question though, because I like different colors for different things, i.e.( yellows, seafoam green, red, orange, browns, soft blues, tans, creams and taupe for decorating and wall colors and white, pinks, aqua, soft greens/yellows and black for clothes). Oh and black for shoes. I guess it’s safe to say I like all colors, eh?
G. Gummy bears or worms? Neither! Did you know they were made from bones??!! So stop eating them NOW! Ewwwww!!
H. Hometown? Eastover, SC
I. Favorite Indulgence? That’s a hard one! I like so many things! But nothing beats a trip to Cupcakes in the Vista(downtown Columbia) for one of their key lime, lemon or red velvet cupcakes! Oh my, oh my!!
J. January or July? I like both, but one is too hot and the other is too cold…I guess I’ll go with July…why? Because it’s summer of course!
K. Kids? Three(Keri, Joel and Blake) and a son-in-law(Allyn), so I guess you can say four. :-) I absolutely love them to pieces!! I’m patiently awaiting grandkids though…I’m so over kids, lol! Just kidding kids…just kidding! Wow, people can’t take a joke these days, geez!
L. Life isn't complete without? JESUS the Christ!! Enough said!
M. Marriage date? January 7th, 1989
N. Number of brothers/sisters? 2 sisters and I’m smack in the middle
O. Oranges or Apples? Neither, but I LOVE strawberries, peaches and blueberries
P. Phobias? It’s a crazy one! But, I don’t have to worry about it anymore, now that I’ve been natural for five years. I had this crazy phobia of just when it was time for my hairdresser to rinse my relaxer out…the water would shut off! Crazy isn’t it, but can you imagine it? My head’s on fire and my hair falling out! Makes me shiver every time I think of it! Aaarrrggghhh!!! Also, I’ve worn corrective lenses since I was five(forty years now). Every time I psyche myself to get Lasik surgery, I get this image of the doctor sneezing just when he puts the laser in my eye! Can you say black holes on my face with smoke coming out of them!! Yikes!! Scary, huh?!! Hahaha. So, I guess it’s safe to say I have a phobia of fire. Let’s just say I’m making sure my relationship with Jesus is SOLID, so I won’t see hell…cause’ me and heat…WE DON’T MIX! :-D
Q. Quotes? Ummm…”Do YOU WELL” of course! :-)
R. Reasons to smile? Sooo many things! Jesus and the Kingdom, my family, beautiful scenery, nature, reminiscing, daydreaming, good music…the list goes on and on...
S. Season of choice? Fall…can you say COLLEGE FOOTBALL(whoopwhoop)! Michigan Wolverines and South Carolina Gamecocks! Also, the smell of cinnamon and apples, picking apples/pumpkins, crunchy leaves, the fresh fall air and the beautiful fall colors. But most importantly, snakes start going underground!! There is a practical reason for my choice too, you know!
T. Tag 5 People. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern I sure hope they can do it, but I might have caught them at a bad time.
U. Unknown fact about me? When I was younger I had a mad crush on Bruce Lee and was devastated when he died…tears. Oh, also when I was younger, I wanted to be a race car driver and mafia princess when I grew up and I had an alter ego whose name was Dana Polinksi (I actually wrote “this book belongs to Dana Polinksi” in all my books)…IKR, too funny right! I had a VERY vivid imagination as a kid(actually, I still do)! I should’ve gone into show biz!
V. Vegetable? Kale and spinach
W. Worst habit? Staying up too late! I’m trying to get in bed by 11:30, but it’s soooo hard!
X. Xray or Ultrasound? Ummm…NEITHER, unless I absolutely have to! I mean really, who likes radiation and who likes cold slimy gel? Personally, I think the question should have been Xylophone or Ukulele? Don’t cha think?
Y. Your favorite food? What? Really? With all kinds of food out here, how can one possibly have a FAVORITE? Oh well, I guess it will have to be a GOOD cheeseburger…doesn’t matter where it’s from, as long as it’s GOOD! Along with a side order of shoestring fries drenched in ketchup. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! You know the kind that makes you take your shoes off and twinkle your toes with delight! Come on, don’t you all act as if you DON’T know what I’m talking about!!
Z. Zodiac sign? I don’t do zodiac signs, but my birthday is May 28th, so it would be Gemini
Alright, now that that's over with and I've shared waaay too much about myself...let's get to linking up ladies and gents!
