All About Me.........

I saw these questions on Facebook the other day and the friend that posted them was asking folks to answer them on their page.  Well, I think they are some pretty interesting questions and decided to use them for a blog post.  As they say,
 "inquiring minds want to know......."

1. What was the last food you ate?
Gourmet cheese toast, that's regular cheese toast with bacon bits sprinkled on top and toasted under the oven broiler.  So, so good!

2. Do you sleep with socks on ?
NO!  Now, on a cold winter's night I've been known to go to bed with socks on but they have to come off before I go to sleep.  They bother me.

3. Worst physical pain you’ve ever felt?
Oh, without a doubt, bladder spasms.  Thankfully it has been a VERY long time since I had these and hopefully I'll never have them again.

4. Favorite place you have been?

Well, I have several favorites but  The Keeter Center in Branson, Missouri rates right up at the top of my favorites list.

We always stay in the Loft Room (pictured above).  They only have 12 rooms so you need to book  them early.  Everything about the Keeter Center is first class and they make you feel like family.

5. How late did you stay up last night ?
I am NOT a night owl for sure.  Last night I think I turned my lamp off at 9:50 and most all nights it is by 10:15.  But, I do start my day by 5:30.  I'm a morning person.

6. If you could move somewhere else, where would it be?
Hummm........if our kids and Grans were "on board" I would probably move back to the state of my birth, Virginia.  It is such a beautiful state but I doubt very seriously I will ever live any further than 25 miles from where I currently live. ~and that's the truth~

7. Who is your favorite sports team?
I am not much into sports but I'll stay true to my state, I'll be cheering for the LSU Tigers and the New Orleans Saints. 

8. When was the last time you cried?
I'm a "crier" from way back.  I think it was 2-3 weeks ago.  Crying is very therapeutic for me and when I cry I always feel better. 

9. Who took your profile pic? 
As I said, these questions were made for Facebook but I use the same picture on my blog that I use on Facebook and my husband took my picture with my phone.

10. Two of your favorite movies?
Pretty Woman and Chariots of Fire

11. What’s your favorite season?

It would be fall with spring running a close second.

12. If you could have any career what would it be?

I have always had a love for nursing and always desired to become one.  But, I never pursued it.  In all my years of care giving I sometimes feel that I have earned the designation.  I'm pretty sure I would have been a good one and perhaps in my "next life" that's what I'll pursue. ~my next life will be walking streets of gold~

13. What was the last book you read?

An awesome book on the power of prayer, Storming the Gates of Heaven.

14. If you could talk to ANYONE right now who would it be?
Oh, it would be my precious Momma.  She died very suddenly 10 1/2 years ago and not a day has gone by since then that I don't think of her.  I think our Moms are the only people that are interested in absolutely ALL aspects of our lives, no matter how mundane. She was my biggest fan and my greatest encourager.

15. Are you a good influence on people? 
I certainly hope so and I certainly strive to be and I do feel like I am.  I love people and I enjoy reaching out to folks to encourage them or minister to them as the need arises.

16. Does pineapple belong on a pizza?
For me, NO!  But, it sure seems that there are plenty of people who feel differently.

17. You have the remote, what show is on?

 To say I love Shark Tank would be an understatement.  I so enjoy watching the participants try to sell their product, service, etc. to the Sharks.  It is so, so interesting! I would venture to say that I have seen EVERY episode more than once.

18. Have you lived in more than one state, if so, which ones?
I have lived in Virginia, Arkansas and Louisiana

19. Last Concert you attended?
We went to the GospelFest in Branson, Missouri this past March.  Guy Penrod did a concert after the GospelFest ended.  He is such a great singer but that night,he did wayyyyy too much  talking and not enough singing.

20. Favorite type of food?

I would have to say Quesadilla and I'm sure that is very weird to a lot of you.  But, I do love them, all kinds of ways, plain, veggie, with meat and always highly seasoned.

So, now you know a little bit more about me and I hope you enjoyed reading my answers as much as I enjoyed answering them.

Have a great new week!!!!

I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Good morning Lea. I enjoy answering the questions that I can answer too. I used to try and do this at times on my blog but haven't. Let's see if I can answer any of these questions this morning.
    1. What was the last food you ate? Strawberry yogurt with nuts and cranberries. And that is about the only way I can eat with nuts and dried fruit!
    2. Do you sleep with socks on ? NO! I am like you, I might put them on to warm up those feet but they come off when I hit the bed. I have a SIL that wears socks to bed and matter of fact, she wears them all fall and winter. NOPE!!!

    3. Worst physical pain you’ve ever felt? Years ago I had a bowel obstruction and had emergency surgery. Thought for sure I was going to meet Jesus. Worst pain I have ever had in my life and I have three kids, several surgeries and live with chronic neck pain.

    4. Favorite place you have been?
    I am going to check that place out you mentioned. Looks so nice. Well, I will say that any of the mountain homes I have stayed in in the Carolina's or Tenn. has been wonderful and of course my happy place...the BEACH! But our recent trip back in February to the Biltmore along with the COVE and Billy Graham library is at the top of my list right now.

    5. How late did you stay up last night ? Oh mercy Lea! I stayed up till 11 because I got interested in a movie but I try to be in bed by 10 or 10:30 the latest. And I did not sleep well at all last night. Mind was racing. I hate that!

    6. If you could move somewhere else, where would it be?
    Hands down St Augustine Florida. Not just because of the beaches but I just love that city. And I would only be about an hour and half away from my kids and grands. But, I have a feeling they might load up and move with me. LOL!

    7. Who is your favorite sports team? Georgia bulldogs for college and any team my grandchildren plays for. LOL!

    8. When was the last time you cried? Oh Lea, I used to never cry much. Now, I would cry over a cartoon! It is crazy! But to be honest, I recently was watching my 14 month old granddaughter sleep and I do not know what came over here but I felt the tears coming....GOOD GRIEF!

    9. Who took your profile pic? Welp! Not sure. Maybe one of my girls.

    10. Two of your favorite movies?
    Steele Magnolia's and The War Room

    11. What’s your favorite season?

    12. If you could have any career what would it? Never really thought about it. When I was a little girl I wanted to be a bus driver. Ha! Then later on I wanted to be a beautician. I have never really been set on pursuing anything I don't guess.

    13. What was the last book you read? Oh that's easy. A series of three books by Terri Blackstock. Love her books.

    14. If you could talk to ANYONE right now who would it be? It would be a toss up between my granny and my motherinlove. One day I am going to talk to both of them.

    15. Are you a good influence on people? I surely hope so and I try to be.

    16. Does pineapple belong on a pizza? Well, I did try it once for something different. BUT...not my fav. Give me back my cheese and meat pizza.

    17. You have the remote, what show is on? Hallmark or Chopped.

    18. Have you lived in more than one state, if so, which ones?
    19. Last Concert you attended?
    I can't even remember it's been so long.

    20. Favorite type of food? I like variety but good old American food suits me. Especially fried chicken, Ha!

    This was fun Lea. So glad I got to join in this morning. Hugs and blessings to you, Cindy

    1. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:

  2. That Loft suite in Branson looks so wonderful. Oh you know how I love VA too!!! And I slept in socks when I was younger, but thanks to Mr. Menopause...I have to sleep in something light weight now. LOL Happy Monday!

  3. This was so fun and the one new thing I learned new about you is your favorite type food. I wouldn't have guessed that for some reason.

  4. This is a fun post!! I did learn more about you. I've never had quesadilla and now think I must try it when we go out for Mexican food next time. Hugs!!

  5. Indeed, I did enjoy learning more about you Lea, I would have had similar answers! You are right about mothers, Fall just happens to be my favorite season with Christmas being my favorite holiday! Thanks for sharing. I do find you to be a great encourager.


  6. Fun post! I did enjoy reading about you. I would love to be able to talk to my Parents. I don't cry, it makes me feel terrible. I love quesadillas too:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  7. Fun post Lea! Except for in the summer I always sleep with socks on! But of course I live in Michigan, so maybe that's the difference. If I don't I wake up cold. I've never seen Shark Tank! My husband always has the remote anyway, haha! I prefer a book or reading blogs. And fall is my favorite season too. Best weather we have all year. And yes, you are an encourager, thank you! xo

  8. Fun post Lea!
    Your Gourmet cheese toast sounds quite interesting,I may have to try that some day.
    Where I live, I certainly do wear socks in bed, but they end up coming off before morning. I have a hard time falling asleep with cold feet, and my feet are usually cold.
    The Keeter Center in Branson is gorgeous, thank you for sharing that with us.
    I could see you as a nurse and I would have to say that you are certainly an encourager.

    For some strange reason your posts are not appearing on my feeder and I can't seem to find a way to follow you should I have been dropped.??

    Bless you~


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
