Tell Me About Yourself Award!



 
I received this award from Grace @ http://growing-old-with-grace.blogspot.com/2011/10/i-received-tell-me-about-yourself-award.html.   Thank you Grace!  It was fun getting to know you a little better.  I apologize for taking so long to post this...  please forgive me.  I am also posting this for Ricki from Art @ Home who also received this award.  I hope you will visit her here: http://ricki-treleaven.blogspot.com/2011/11/my-happy-list-32.html

 
You are suppose to forward this to 15 other bloggers, but all my closest blogging buddies have already been awarded and I know how every one's time is now with the approaching holiday.  So if you feel so inclined to do this, please do so, I would love it if you did.  It is always great getting to know all of you a little better.

 
Seven things about me:  (I'm really pretty boring y'all!).

 
  1. I am a "Merle" girl.  (I have used Merle Norman cosmetics and skin care products since I was approximately 20 years old and now I am a Beauty Consultant at our local Merle Norman Studio here in Bardstown.  I have worked there part-time for the past 5 years.
  2. I drive a big black 4-wheel drive, four door Ford F-150 pick up truck and I love it.  I don't know what I'd do without it. 
  3. I own a Kodiak 4-wheeler ATV and love riding on it and feeling the wind in my hair and on my face!!  I don't go real fast and I stay pretty much on safe ground.
  4. I use to own a cafe' in Bardstown called "The Spicy Lemon Cafe" and was featured in the "Southern Lady" magazine.
  5. I worked in Corporate America for a total of 27 years!  Hence, why I went crazy and opened a cafe'!
  6. I am truly a Southern Girl!  I was born in Knoxville, Tennessee in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains.  I love the mountains and go back as often as possible.  (Plus I love sweet tea or as we call it, "the house wine of the south")!
  7.  I have one sibling, a brother who is 26 months older and everyone has always believed we are twins.  (He made me the tomboy I am today)!

I hope you all will give this a try.  It's actually a little difficult, but fun.  Thanks Grace and Ricki for challenging me.
 
Have a happy week!

  9. Ginger,
    Love Number 3. When we went to Iowa, the kids rode these BIG four-wheeler tractors, and had a blast!! That is something they will always remember. Oh, I can totally see you owning a cafe. I'd be your waitress and we'd talk for hours. hehe

  10. Congrats on your award! I too was a Southern girl for about 9 months. I went to Murray St. University my freshman year. I actually know where Bardstown, KY is!!! I spent a lot of time on the West Kentucky Parkway.

    It's good to be a tomboy. We are more self-sufficient! I have even ran rollers, pounders and a Bobcat. (Hubby has an excavating business. Now, I don't do it on a daily (or even yearly basis LOL.)

    Take care,
    Gale

  11. It was so fun to read all about you. I think it's so interesting that you owned your own business. I would love to do that but the chances are pretty slim. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!
