wow this has been a fast week....
I do feel like I've accomplished a little though...
 
 
the State Fair of Texas opened today....
I definitely want to go this year...
makes a great photo op....
 
 I have an opportunity to go to the Dallas Arboretum this weekend.
I am so looking forward to it....
my camera is too...
 
I made a garland for Hotrods room yesterday...
I can't share it because it has his name on it...
the letters cost me $1.50...
I have enough left to make several more...
I had everything else I needed already...
I used a black shoe string as the base...
I used old sheet music for the background cut into squares...
DIL has requested one for her bedroom too....
Thank you Nancy at A Rural Journal for the fun idea...
I'm feeling really crafty right now...
so here goes....
1.  I was born and raised in the same town I live in...I lived in another town for 6 months when hubby and I first got married...but moved right back...so I guess that qualifies me as a hometown girl
 
2.  I don't like the F word...I don't use it...it drives me crazy when I hear people use it so casually like they are saying please or thank you...
 
3.  I love popcorn....I could eat it every night for dinner...I microwave my own in a brown bag..something found on the net...
no oils...sometimes I will put a little shredded cheese on it...
 a good Klassen pickle makes it even better
 
4.  I love music...all kinds of music...classic country...
60's...70's...rock...disco...big band...swing...latino..
 

5.  I love to go barefooted....I love shoes...all kinds of shoes...
sandals...boots....nothing with too high a heel...
but when I'm home...I love to go barefootin'...
even in the winter time...my daughter is the same way...
she loves shoes...she likes the high heels...of course
her feet are accustomed to them...she got her pointe shoes when she was nine years old...she wears flip flops in the winter...
my Mom is a shoe lover...but at home... she is barefootin' too...
guess it's a family tradition...
 
Well now you know a little bit more about me...

Hi Deb nice to meet I'm visiting from 5 Fact Friday. I like to go barefoot too but it's getting a bit cold now so woolly socks it is. I'm with you on the F word it seems to be used so much more these days.... Like you I only live 20 miles from where I was brought up I've been away but like a homing bird I came back..
Have a great weekend and thanks so much for visiting my blog today

i think it is funny - nancy confessed to her potty mouth; you said you hate the f word. :)

I share some of your facts! I've never been able to wear slippers so I'm always barefoot too.
Also a music lover -- have you ever played SongPop over on Facebook? It's really fun. Visiting from 5FF of course!

Sandra said...

me to on the barefootin and here in florida that is not a problem. how do you keep the brown back closed for popcorn? i love popcorn and eat it for a meal quite often, i used to take microwave popcorn to work for lunch, we had a microwave and i kept a box of single servings in my drawer.

It's so hard for me to imagine living in the same place - and I guess I'm a little jealous of that... I've moved around a lot, but that's been fun in some ways, too.

Love your Welcome Yall! Born in the south, raised by southern parents, that made me feel right at home! (stopped by from 5 facts Friday)

Patrice said...

I could spend my life barefoot, too!

Michelle said...

I need to try the brown bag popcorn thing. My daughter loves the stuff, but I have read that the microwave variety isn't so good for you.

Nancy Claeys said...

If we ever met face to face, Deb, I'd mind my manners. Lol.

How neat you made the garlands! I'm glad your family liked them. Have a super weekend dear. :)

Linda Hoye said...

I'm a barefoot gal too!

Judy said...

Know what you mean about barefoot- I have finally had to put my sandals away for the winter (pout) and switch to sneakers. But my toes were turning blue by the time we got home from our walks...

I am barefoot most of the time. I have not tried my own popcorn in the microwave and yours sounds yummy with the cheese on it. Yes the F word is used way to often when it shouldn't be but I have to be honest and say I have used it when I am really really mad. The Arboretum and State Fair sound like fun. Enjoy!
