I enjoy participating in Half-Past Kissin' Time's Friday Fragments Brain Dump, so I'm dumping the answers to these questions as my contribution this week!
1. Name one thing you would like to learn to do and why.
I have two cans of Anne Sloan chalk paint, wax, and a brush in the garage calling my name. Anne's paints are all over the DIY blogs that I read and I have been wanting to give them a try for a while now. When we were in Florida, I bought some but haven't had the chance to use them yet. I am hoping today is the day! I will definitely post pics and my opinion of this product.
2. What is your favorite movie?
I love to go to the movies especially matinees or late, late showings. Those times make it seem really special to me. However, I seldom watch a movie more than once and very rarely purchase one. I want to give a mention of Mirror, Mirror, Julia Roberts new movie which comes out next weekend. My bff's son is the stunt man for Arme Hammer in this film! We are so proud of Kyle, and I can't wait to see it. My friend and her husband were on set for a week and I heard all about it, so I am EXCITED for all of them! 3. If you could have dinner with anyone who would it be?
I feel guilty for not saying Jesus, or Abraham Lincoln, or my grandmothers, but today, I am going to say Barbara Bush. I have always thought she seemed so warm and fuzzy and definitely has an interesting story to tell. She is also old enough that she might be willing to let her guard down and be really honest, sharing some of the nitty gritty of being involved in politics.
4. What have you learned about yourself since you began blogging?
I have learned that I can too quickly become obsessed with numbers! My old nemesis "comparison" has reared its ugly head during this new little venture, but I need to learn to control it and just be "ME", so I am sticking it out. Does anyone else out there struggle with this?
5. Why do you blog?
I started blogging because I have been a fan of many blogs for many years, and I thought it would be fun. It has been. I wanted a chance to learn new things and not lose what technological skills I possessed when I quit teaching everyday. I have definitely learned! I also wanted a chance to make some new friends across the world. I have already met several other bloggers and can't wait to meet more. So....blogging works for me!
