{Let's Chat}

Girls Talking Clip Art
Web image

How about we have a little chat and get to know one another a little better? It's funny at just how long we can know someone and yet we find ourselves saying, "Oh, I didn't know that about you!". So let's get started shall we?

Finish this sentence:

1: I would not get caught dead without....

My LIPSTICK! I am that gal that loves her lipstick. What can I say? My granny always said even if you don't have any makeup on, paint those lips! LOL! And, I have told my girls that even if they choose to close my coffin they best have my lipstick on! 

2: Apple Pie, Banana pudding, or brownies and ice cream. What's your pleasure?
Brownies and ice cream hands down. 

3: If you could be a guest on any TV show which would it be? 
Chopped, Pioneer Woman, Bobby Flay,  or any cooking show really. (love the cooking shows)

4: What gets on your nerves worse than anything at this time of your life?
Oh lawd...hope I don't offend anyone but my answer would be sitting in a restaurant trying to enjoy a meal with my man and the couple next to us have screaming children that do just that the entire time....scream! I don't mind a cry, a little misbehaving and well, I think you get it. Been there and done that! But SCREAMING the whole time? NOPE, just ain't gonna do it. I will ask to be moved.   

5: What is something that can make the hair on the back of your neck rise and your face turn red? People being rude to old people! People being RUDE period will set me off but especially to old people!

6: If you have a day all to yourself, nothing really on the agenda, what do you like to do?
Watch movies. My man is not one to just sit and watch movies especially if it's chick flicks so if he's not home and I have nothing really to do, I love to pile up with a few movies, popcorn, and diet coke. Oh yeah, and a Reese's peanut butter cup! 

7:  If tonight you knew that you were eating your last supper....What would the meal of your choice be? Fried chicken, mustard greens with a big old fat ham hock in it, mashed potatoes and gravy, biscuits with syrup or honey, and cheesecake.

BONUS Question:
If you were to describe your thoughts on life right now which would it be?
A: Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you will get?
B: Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important. Capture the good times and if things don't work out then take another shot.
C: Like is like a roller coaster. It has it's ups and downs but it's your choice to scream or enjoy the ride?
My answer right now in current life situation would be B.  

I hope that you all have a safe and fun July 4th holiday. We plan to stay home and grill hamburgers and hot dogs. Keeping it simple. 



I will leave you with this today.............

"We celebrate our freedom on the 4th of July, or Independence day, but our real freedom came at the expense of God's own Son. It was a freedom from the bondage of sin because of Jesus, who died for all who would believe in Him, and, truly, we were free at last"....Pastor Jack Wellman

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. Love this!

    I don't leave home without lip gloss but need to get better about color on my lips.
    Brownies and ice cream for me too!
    I would never, ever be on tv. No way!
    I can not stand littering and would love to arrest the people who do it.

    Happy 4th! :)

  2. Love that last quote from the pastor. So very true! yes, I need lipstick to make me look alive. (so, even if I'm dead, put some lipstick on me, please/! Ha) I agree about screaming children. Grocery stores, restaurants, Walmart...parents please take care of your children. I know, I've been there, but thankfully I tried really hard to be considerate of others, and also considerate of my children's needs to not be out when they were tired, sick, hungry,etc. Sometimes you just have to change your plans for the sake of the kids. They are more important than the parents' need to go out to eat, etc. Timing is everything. I love old movies too, esp. if I am home alone...(which rarely happens anymore since we are both retired) I was thrilled last week to actually get my hubby to watch some old movies with me that I recorded on the DVR from TCM. (Cary Grant movies are always great). He enjoyed them too. Have a happy 4th of July. WE are doing hot dogs and hamburgers too.

  3. What a fun little quiz. Count me in for the brownie and ice cream! Your last supper also made my mouth water. Happy 4th of July! My Canada Day long weekend is over and I gotta return to work tomorrow. Sigh.

    1. Happy 4th to you and your family Connie. Enjoy your apple pie.

  11. 1: I would not get caught dead without....Lord forbid I am not held together by safety pins or shaving my chin hairs...LOL! 2: Apple pie in a heartbeat...love a fruit pie over chocolate any day. 3. Downton Abbey as one of the "help". 4: If you are going to offend, I am too...YES...why don't some young people make their little ones mind anymore...in many different scenarios. All I can say is they are just asking for trouble down the road! 5: What is something that can make the hair on the back of your neck rise and your face turn red? Political correctness and people being just plain mean and cruel...to humans AND to animals. 6: Give me my camera and a beautiful day...I would get lost in the country and it would be fine if I never came across another human being. 7: If tonight you knew that you were eating your last supper....My meal of choice would be filled with carbs and would include a supreme pizza, a big fat gooey cinnamon roll and pies of all kinds. Hey, I'm gonna die anyway, right?? BONUS Question: Like both B & C but mostly B since it includes a camera. :)

    Fun post, dear friend! HUGS!

    1. Oh I loved your answers! Girl, I keep one of those little battery operated thingys in my makeup bag and quite often pull it out for the hair on the chin. And the lips, and the sideburns and the face! LOL! Cinnamin roll sounds so good right about now. I am still on the coffee! Happy 4th my friend.

  12. Hi Cindy. I love this kind of post and your answers are great. I always want lipstick on if I leave home. It is a tough choice on the desserts because I have never met a dessert I didn’t like. Screaming child in a restaurant gets me every time. I would never be on TV. Happy 4th, hugs and blessings!

    1. Thanks Pam. And you would be cute as a button on any TV show. Especially one of those shows that you might could show your beautiful tablescapes too. Hugs

  13. Oh, how sweet to get to know you a bit better! And, I love the quote at the end...it made me think of that song, "The Cross Is My Statue of Liberty." Have you heard it? I hope I am getting that title right, but it is so pretty and goes along with that quote. I hope you and your family are blessed with a wonderful holiday together tomorrow, dear friend. Sending love and hugs your way!

  19. Girl.... By the time I got to the end of the questions, I'd forgotten the first one! The old mind ain't what it used to be! I do remember the one about sweets, though. Give me all the ooey gooey brownies and Bear Claw ice cream, please! 😁 Hope you had a great 4th of July celebration! 💜
