Answers. Also... A birthdAy!

Jenny Matlock

I was tAgged by Emmy to Answer eight questions!  So here are my Answers.  

1) If you could pick one place to live, where would it be?
Hawaii or some other tropical type of place.
2)Are you a dog or cat person? Why?
I prefer cats simply because they are lower maintenance.  I am lazy.  Like a cat.
3) Close your eyes and reach into your purse; what is the first thing you grabbed?
A little black pouch for my phone is not in it.  It's in the depths of my purse.
4) What was your favorite childhood toy?
I played with Barbies a lot, but my go to was my tape recorder.
5) The seasons are about to change; which is your favorite?
I love LOVE Fall.  Bestest weather.
6) What side of the bed do you sleep on? And do you like cuddling when you sleep or do you have to have your own space?
On the left and I totally want my space.
7) What is your favorite candy?
Homemade butterfingers and peanut butter cups.
8) If I gave you $100 right now, what would you do with it?
Why?  Are you offering?  :)

Also today is a very special day.  13 years ago at precisely 5:43PM something happened that would change my whole perspective on everything I ever did or said and on anything I would ever say or do.  She cried for four months.  I hardly slept.  She had the biggest brightest eyes you ever saw.
At a very early age she was very Articulate!  She and I talk all the time.  About anything.  Everything.  I hope it can always be like that.  She is 13 today.  I don't know what I did.  I think I blinked.  I am trying to keep my eyes open longer now.  Because if I blink again she will be grown.  Don't be in too big of a hurry, sweetie.  You can grow, just take your time.  Love you!  Happy Birthday!

Now I must tag some friends to Answer my questions...first the questions....

Your daughter is adorable, and it sounds like she's great company, too.

Happy Birthday to your sweet daughter. 13 is a big one - Teenager in the house! Woot!

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

Good to get to know you!! The older I get the more I think I want a bucket list!

Pondside said...

Interesting to learn a little bit about you.
I know what you mean about blinking and missing something - my baby is 23 and I don't know where the years went. Thank heavens I was present in mind and spirit because I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to know that my attention had been elsewhere.

Holly said...

Happy Birthday to your baby! Those are some amazing eyes...what a gorgeous young lady. I hope to have that kind of relationship with my kids. You are a wonderful mommy!

Amy said...

A little late, but Happy birthday! And what a beauty your daughter is. Just keep your eyes open, hu? :)

Jenny said...

Oh Lourie.

She is lovely. Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter. What a darling baby she was, too.

It's hard keeping your eyes from blinking, isn't it? Maybe that's what happened to my kids!

Thanks for this sweet, sweet stop for Alphabe-Thursday.

You are always lovely to visit.

And your answers made me laugh.
