Your are very interesting and I love your glasses! Sounds like you have had a very nice life, and I too miss my mom.

TDT said...

Don't forget that you like to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving with your daughters at 4 AM woohoo

marshas said...

And some people just call you "Nita Lynn" - Great Post - Everyone needs to know about you!!!! I even learned a couple of things and yes TD I know she loves that early shopping, but what amazes me is how long ya'll last!

Loren said...

Oh Shug! I LOVE learning more about you!! We are soooo alike :) Now, I see why you like my book blog :) I mean, I knew you like to read but seeing it this way I "get it" LOL

You do so much for others and no doubt the Lord gives you the JOY that spills over onto us as we read your story :) You inspire and encourage no matter what you share! I love that about you!!!

Have a blessed week and I am still inviting you over to my family blog if you ever want to come....

Mom on the go said...

I've got another one about you... you have a t-shirt to go with which ever grandkids team is playing for any particular day. Super supportive Shug!

Ginny said...

Oh, shug, I am so glad you did this. Especially since I am a rather new follower and don't know that much about you!! What shocked me is that we are so much alike in so many ways!!!! and I love the picture of your smiling face, I want to have coffee with you and chat. Phil and I have been married 41 years, but there is nine years difference between us, too!! I have not worked since I got married, I have been a stay at home mom and wife, and love it. and I lost my moim just a few years ago and still miss her very much. I am a shopaholic, and I love even the smell of bookstores, at one time I must have has a thousand!! And I love reading book reviews, too. Ever since I was a kid, I read the Washington Post Book Review section!! It was a sad day for me when they stopped publishing it a year or so ago. I have always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon, and have been to two of the festivals and posted them. I would go in a minute, but I am handicapped and would need a balloon that you don't have to srep way up over the basket. But I did but my son and DIL a ride and have the pics of it. I used to be so shy, I actually hid from people, I had Social Anxiety Disorder. I'm the totla opposite now. Once I got to be old, I didn't care anymore and I realized the world was not all about ME! Hey, I will have to do one of these on my blog!!

Well,it was nice getting to know you better.My husband and I would have been married 39 years on June 9,close to your date.Thanks for sharing this info.

Debbie said...

Hoping my second attempt is the charm. I have so many computer problems when I try to post.

I really enjoyed your list and could have written quite a few of them myself. I really agree about suspense movies!! The only thing worse than a regular suspense flick would be one staring Jim Carey and Angelina Jolie, my two most annoying actors. That would be the pits.

Farmchick said...

Such a great list and can I just say that "Shug" is like the best name evah!!!! Looks like we have many things on your list in common, but I especially love the quiet in a house by myself...rarely happens though!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Love reading all of these, Shug.. It does help me to know you better... I seldom see Assembly of God Churches---but in the town where I grew up in Virginia, there was a fairly large Assembly of God Church...

Didn't know your name was Anita... That is neat!!!! I have a good childhood friend named Nita... AND---she owns a florist shop....

How did your nose get broken ---TWICE???? Yipes!!!

Thanks for doing this... I LOVED it.
