I may or may not have "borrowed" this idea from IchnoArt one of my SISTStas today.  She calls it a front porch party.  Even though I do not have a front porch, I do loves me a good partay!  Here are some interesting (?) tidbits about me. (sorry Facebook friends, I also used some of these in a note that I was tagged in earlier this year):

1. I love the song "Sexy Back" by Justin Timberlake
2. I never EVER drink from a water fountain, with the exception of at church because I've seen them clean it with my very own eyes.  My sister drinks from them all the time.  I'm pretty sure she will end up with Hep C and I will laugh, point, and say I told you so
3. I like to write with my purple pen at work. It makes the day feel a bit cheerier
4. I have been in love 3 times in my life; twice as a teenager and once as an adult. I am not sure I'll ever be completely over the last one.
5. I tried to talk my sister out of buying a house with a big yard and now I am Queen of the Yard Work. I LOVE GARDENING!!! But I pay the neighbor kid to mow the lawn.  Yes, I’m THAT that is boy's work.
6. I love watching Mimi the satanic Chihuahua stretch across the carpet and rub her belly.  I also love to watch her prance.
7. I am addicted to little ice. I go to the gas station every day to get some. I found it at the grocery store last Christmas and served it at a party and everyone was jealous of me.
8. I have a handful of friends that I cannot imagine life without.
9. I cherish my relationship with my sister more than I ever could have imagined.
10. I have been hurt more times in my relationships with girls/women than with boys/men. I am learning again as an adult that women can be catty and even cruel. It does not hurt any less at 36 than it did at 16.
11. I own a power drill...and am not afraid to use it. I am learning to be Ms. Fix-it, and resident bug killer. Though I am scared senseless of mice.
12. I can cook and love to bake but if left to my own devices I would survive on cereal and Oreos
13. I am addicted to buying shoes that don't fit. I have a closet full of shoes that I cannot wear.
14. I strongly believe that Thanksgiving should have it's own season and that Christmas decorations should stop trying to steal it's thunder.
15.  I lay in bed thinking of things to blog about. I love to hear that my blog makes people laugh.


  1. (1) Me too.
    (7) What is little ice?
    (10) I've been through some painful friend breakups in the past too. They definitely make you appreciate your close friends.
    (15) It totally does. I'm so glad I stopped by from SITS.

    P.S. Love the Thanksgiving theme and funky music!

  2. Amen to #11. I am a single woman. I can totally handle a drill and usually kill any insect that my cats don't kill. But I am currently in a battle to the death with a few mice that have gotten into my house. EWWWW!

    I have lived in my house for 8 years and this is the first time I've had this problem. So far, I'm more of the resupply officer in my war against the mouse. My boyfriend sets the traps and collects the dead mice. So far three in 3 days. EW!!! Let's hope that's the end of them.

    Stopping by from SITS!

  3. I love this! What a fun idea :) What size are your shoes...maybe you should let people come "shop" in your closet, ha ha!

  4. Hi Stace! I miss your face. That rhymes, and I didn't even do it on purpose. I also love oreos. Hate doing yardwork. Terrified of bugs. Love my sisters.

    When are we going to hang out? I'm sad I haven't seen you in so long.

  5. Hey there! Thanks for visiting my blog today! Okay...
    1. LOVE Sexyback almost as much as I love JT. If you don't have his Sexyback DVD, you should go right out and get it. It's AWESOME and addictive.
    6. I love everything about my chi's - and love that you have one too!
    8. Ditto. Gotta have those peeps or what's it all about?
    14. I'm TOTALLY WITH YOU on that. Wassup with that, christmas??
    15. Your blog makes me laugh too... so thanks for that! :)

    Also - I love that your friend up there (in the comment before me) said "i miss your face" - that made me smile.

    ANOTHER also - you love SYTYCD too? We're gonna be fast bloggy friends. Travis Wall's piece made me cry last night... best of the season so far!!

    Cheers girl!

  6. What is little ice? I've never heard of it. Writing with different colored pens is the best. It makes tedious work, so much better.
    Happy SITS day!!

  7. Loved this! Happy Sits day. Women are mean! It is sad really,

  8. I always liked cutting the grass. I love the smell of freshly cut grass too. I also like to give people something to laugh at on my blog.

    Congrats on your SITS day.

  9. I love little ice too!! When I was in the hospital delivering my kids, it was one of the only things that the hospital cafe sent me that I would actually eat. :) How could people not know about little ice??? Unthinkable!

  10. The shoe thing cracks me up. I hate shoes. I have like two pair, and a pair of flip flops.

    Happy SITS DAY!!

  11. I totally agree about Thanksgiving and little ice.

  12. I've been in love with JT since well, like 9th grade. I'm 27, does that ever become insane? Happy SITS day!

  13. What a fantastic list - I may have to steal this idea from you! :) Happy SITS day! I loved the one about women - so true!

  14. Great post! Here from SITS- congrats! Little ice... awesome.

  15. Fun list!! What is Little Ice?

  16. ok, so what is little ice?

    I (ssshhh...) like Sexy Back too!

    Stopping by for your SITs day! Enjoy! This post is a wonderful idea for your day.

  17. Happy SITS Day! This post made me laugh because I am a teacher and ALWAYS use a purple pen to do anything with. One of my former students (that is now 21, I taught her in 5th grade, do the math) told me that is one thing she always remembered about me.

    Oh and I lovvvvve Thanksgiving, no gifts, obnoxious decorations, just visiting with family and eating.

    Have a super day!


  18. I admit I love Sexy Back too. It is very catchy LOL. I know women can be so hurtful at times. I am not sure why. I don't want to be the woman that hurts another. I enjoyed learning more about you. Thank you.

  19. Happy SITS day!
    A purple pen would make things cheerier wouldn't it? I'm going to try that.
    I'm also very aware of how hurtful women/girls can be. Fortunately I have a wonderful group of friends now that I don't know what I'd do without! You're lucky you're so close to your sister, that makes up for a lot of it.

  20. Okie doke- what the heck is little ice? If it makes party-goers jealous...then I NEED some!!

    Congrats on your day (and also your ability to wield a power tool. This is clutch.)


  21. Oh, wow, I can totally relate to #10 and #13. Women can be so much more hurtful than men, and you're right, it doesn't stop after adolescence.

    I, too, have a closet full of shoes I can't wear. I call them my "sitting shoes." They're perfect for those (rare) occasions where I can go out and sit the entire time, leaving my feet in only moderate pain, but looking fabulous. I'm also the queen of shoe lies, telling myself that surely the leather will stretch. Um, no.

    What is little ice? I'm intrigued ...

    Happy SITS day! Loving your blog. I'm going to start following!

  22. Yes, what IS little ice??

    And your blog DOES make me laugh!!
    Happy SIST day girlie!

  23. so funny! i was in the car the other day and sexy back came on. I started singing and dancing and my four month old thought it was hilarious. I'm SUCH a good mom, singing sexy back to my child.

  24. Great list....and little ice aka pebble ice is my favorite too. I go to Cafe Rio and Sonic, just for their ice.

  25. This made me laugh out loud!!!
    I am now going to search your blog for a picture of Mimi the satanic chihauhau ...
    and what is little ice?

  26. You have a satanic dog, too? We need to hang out. One of my poodles is pure evil.

    what is little ice? I'm off to investigate on google...

  27. you will CERTAINLY get over the past relationship...I thought I would die over my last one and never heal..well I lived to tell about it sista! also, I live and breathe ice. But actually I like to chew it, and the smaller the ice the better, yum ;-)
    Happy SITS day

  28. You are one strange - i mean unique - lady. Happy SITS Day!!!

  29. Happy SITS Day! I love your list. Ever consider selling those shoes that don't fit?

  30. LOL! I thought I was the only one (3,12,15). Happy SITS Day!

  31. Love Little Ice! And you are right women are horrible mean to each other~ Happy SITS Day~

  32. Ditto #10!! I have very few close girl friends and we all chuckle at how we like each other so much because our relationships are more like those we have with the men in our lives. Women can be vicious without cause. It's just the jealously in their own heads lashing out.

  33. I agree, women are awful. I had this little sign that says 'If the shoe fits, it's ugly.' I am assuming you know what I talking about.

    Happy SITS day.


  34. I'm with you. Mowing is boys' work. ;) Stopping by from SITS.

  35. I love ice too! Lol. The small crunchy kind definitely qualifies as a snack. I do love the Sexy Back and I lie in bed every night thinking about my dang blog. This whole blog thing is soooo addicting!!! Nice to learn more about you. Happy SITS day!!!

  36. I am SO number 11. I once called my mother in Jamaica to come and catch a mouse for me in Canada and begged her to get on a plane. Everything else, including a rather large boa I get rid of myself.

    Happy SITS Day!

    Cheers :-)

  37. girlfriends, even if they're just a handful, can help you survive a nuclear war or a broken heart, whichever is less dramatic.

    happy SITS day :)

  38. You should listen to Sexy Back while you write with your purple pen. That'll make ya feel even better!!!

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma What's for Dinner

  39. Oh a woman true to my own heart. Cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner? No problem!

  40. Hi Stacy-
    Visitng you from SITs. I totally agree with you that Thanksgiving should be it's own holiday. It is my favorite. I work in retail display and we put Christmas up in the store in Sept. Yuck!!! I try my best to make Thanksgiving truly special. I hope you are enjoying your Day.
    My best - Diane

  41. Nice list! And by the way, #10 - doesn't hurt any less at 52 either, but by my age you are SO over the drama, it slides off faster.

    Stopping by from SITS! Happy SITS Day!

  42. Your blog is too cute! You have such a great and funny writing style! Keep up the great work, SITSA!

  43. I love learning about people like this! I have my own list of 25 (?) I think from when it was going around facebook as well... so I know how long it takes to come up with good things like this! :)

    Hope you had a great SITS day! SO SO SO glad I went back and caught up! :)

  44. Happy SITS day! Great post - I might have to borrow it (with credit of course!) for my own blog!

  45. Very late from SITS sorry- hehe I have months to catch up on. So glad I found your blog- I will be back.


What's up little pup?
