Thursday 13 Things that if you knew me, You'd know this About Me!
  1. I love the Ocean. My favorite part is through walking through the surf, holding hands with the one I love while watching the Sunset.
  2. I love to cook, simple, but nutrious food, that the family can get together at the table and relax and talk about their day. Now this doesn't happen every day at our house, but I love when it does.
  3. I love my family, my husband and my kids to pieces.
  4. I love pretty flowers. Thanks to Green Thumb Sunday, there is hope for my brown thumb yet!
  5. I prefer cats to dogs. I like dogs too, it's just that Cats purr and can fit in my lap better, when I pet them.
  6. I love to travel. Somebody says, "Road Trip!" I'm all packed and Out the Door before you can say, "Let's Go!"
  7. Both my husband and son are Type 1 Diabetics. I'm very proud of my husband for stepping up and being a fine example of how you take care of yourself for our son. I just pray for a cure everyday. It just kills me to see them go through what they go through on a daily basis. Sure they try to maintain a normal sense of blood sugars, but it's gotten easier with technology. Seriously though it scares me half the time taking care of my son because he is so young, and he can't tell me all the time how he's feeling, if he's low, or if he's high.
  8. I'm closest to my Grandmother.
  9. My father passed away almost 10yrs ago at 52, and it was real hard for me, because he was the second closest person to me. He taught me to listen to people, and you really don't know a person, until you walk a mile in their BOOTS!
  10. I've wanted to open my own restaurant. I like to eat. I love the idea of entertaining, so I'd invite everyone I'd know, just to come in for a good meal and a good time.
  11. I love to do things with the kids, like finger paint, going to the library and feed the ducks,just listening to them. This is a good one. After watching CARS, my son asked me if we could go on Route 66! So I thought we'd cruise that one day!
  12. I'm really starting to like taking pictures. PIC OF THE DAY!
  13. What is one thing if we knew you, what would we know??

Caylynn said...

Great list! It's nice to get to know you better. I can understand how it must be difficult to take care of your son since he can't always tell you exactly how he's feeling.

For #13, people who know me know I love cats and horses.

Happy TT. :)

Chickadee said...

I also LOVE the ocean. It's a shame I don't live any where near the ocean! LOL.

I'm sorry to hear that your dad died at a young age. My sister was killed by a drunk driver when she was 19. It's been 11 years now and I still miss her.

Thanks for stopping by my 13.

Christine said...

The ocean is the best place to be. If you knew me you'd know that I'm a geek at heart. I love gadgets and gizmos, and could play video games all day long.

Thanks for stopping by my site!

tiggerprr said...

You know I live right by the ocean, but I've only actually gone there once since we've arrived here. I think it was the mass people here for touristy season, but, now that it's over, I think I'll go down there when it's nice next.

If you knew me, you'd know that I'm a great friend. ;)

You sound a lot like me. I love the ocean too and love spending time doing things with the kids. Unfortunately they are growing up way too fast!

One thing you would know about me if you knew me is that I'm a very loyal friend.

Ocean said...

I had a feeling you really like to cook. That is a great idea to open your own restaraunt! I love that feeling too when everyone is sitting at the table and talking. Very nice! :)

I love the ocean too.. I just don't live anywhere near one.

Great TT! Its nice to get to know people.
You can enter all the birth stories you have! I love them all! One lady entered 4 of hers! I have 7, but only a couple are really funny. Some are horrifying, and some are miraculous, I guess, but I love birth stories!
