33 Unsolicited Facts about ELC

If God allowed us to pick an age to go back to for a day or week or month—or maybe even forever—I’d pick 33. It was all good. I weighed 133 (the lowest I had been in years and a number I highly doubt I’ll ever see again)—TLC was 3 and finally sleeping all night—everything was copasetic. Well, except for that frizzy, permed hair. YIKES. So, in honor of the number 33, here goes:

  1. My favorite color is blue: powder, Wedgwood, navy, sapphire, . The beauty of a blue sky can literally bring tears to my eyes.
  2. I could eat cake (white with buttercream icing) and pizza (burger and green olives) every day of the week.
  3. I positively adore getting an unexpected message on our home answering machine from one of our grandkids! A text is fabulous, too! Precious Darlings.
  4. I was afraid of the dark until I was 30. Now I am fearless. Well, almost. (See #s 5, 9, 24, and 28.)
  5. I’ve never been on a cruise and have no plans to go. The Titanic. Nuff said.
  6. I’ll take the mountains over the beach almost every time—but I adore Maui (I was not there for TLC and Hubby’s honeymoon).
  7. I LOVE milk!!! (I drink it when I’ve reached my Diet Dew limit for the day.)
  8. I heart my Dorsey Gang (Terry and Hawkeye—but I miss Rebecca) mornings on 96.3 (country)—KSCS—Dallas/Fort Worth.
  9. Sharks scare the you-know-what out of me.
  10. I like “folded” chips—potato, Tostito; the “ends/heels” of breads—especially home-baked (not that I’m that baker); the corners of brownies and lasagna.
  11. I’ll have been married to the love of my life for 33 years in September.
  12. I covet sapphires, diamonds and pearls—in that order. (Truly, I don’t require expensive trinkets. I’m pretty simple. But my Nana did call me “Miss Got Rocks” by the time I was 7.)
  13. I’ve never baked a turkey. And I don’t care. (Thank goodness Hubby will do it. He’s my awesome “I-Took-Him-Home Chef!”)
  14. I’d say “I’m The Yellow Rose of Texas when I was four years old and someone asked me, “What’s your name?”
  15. I wanted to be a real-life Nancy Drew from age 10 until—well, actually, now. Reckon it’s too late?
  16. As of this moment, my favorite numbers are 3, 6, 7, and 8. But always 3 and always, always, always 8.
  17. I apparently can no longer do crossword puzzles—even simple ones—and that worries me.
  18. I have no idea how to do Sudoku. What is it?
  19. I love going to horse races and am determined to attend (for the first time) The Kentucky Derby. Soon. Bucket List.
  20. I cry every single Biggest Loser show. Not just a few tears. A river. You know how your throat muscles start hurting when you try not to sob? That kind of crying.
  21. I believe in Angels. Astrology (I’m an Aries) and Numerology (I’m a 6) intrigue me.
  22. I can be very unorganized. I don’t like that.
  23. I wear tennis shoes (not cute—quite “boatish”) six out of 7 days of the week—Fat Baby Ariat (their real name—didn’t make it up) boots on the 7th day.
  24. I’m not adventurous at all. Wouldn’t sky dive if you made me. I would, however, consider zip-lining.
  25. Pansies (blues are the best!), daisies and yellow roses are my most favorite flowers.
  26. I never learned how to sew—I took Geology in high school to get out of Home Economics.
  27. I’m not crafty, either. I have virtually no “artistic” abilities. I do like to color—in coloring books. Yep. I’ll admit it!
  28. I hate snakes, scorpions and armadillos. Okay, dislike immensely.
  29. I don’t mind doing laundry—but I dislike immensely putting it up.
  30. I’d like to learn how to play golf.
  31. I’d like to learn how to square dance. Yep—square dance.
  32. I’ve seen John Wayne, Kevin Costner, and Matthew McConaughey up very close and personal—got their authographs (well, my Little Bubba got Mr. Wayne’s, but I was right there)—and only one of them was nice. You’ll have to guess which one.
  33. I’m going to drive TLC to Austin to pick up her loot when she wins the Texas Lottery! She will need to buy a ticket first—I’m pretty sure that’s how that works.
Gotta scoot—have a grocery list to make—for Hubby. J/ K. No, I’m not. LOL.

How come your list looks so much more nice and neat and organized than mine?

Smooch.

TLC

P.S. Let's give credit where credit is due -- who invented the delicious hamburger and green olive pizza? She must be some-kind-of brilliant to come up with an amazing combination like that. Wowza.

TLC (again)

Well, what can I say? Age and experience have to count for something, right?

And, okay, you did suggest I try my now favorite kind of pizza. Invented? Hardly, Brilliant TLC. You do have AWESOME ideas. Must be all those Food Network shows you watch.

Muah!
