Getting to know Me

Mindy tagged me and wanted to know more about me. Well, I got to thinking about this. I've been tagged in the past and have mentioned many things about myself, but I thought I would do this tag with what I am passion about. Yes, I have routines and things I do almost daily for pure enjoyment, but there may be other things you don't know about me. I'm not one to usually talk about myself, as you can tell from my blog, I like to talk about others or show you places I like to go. So here goes:

Seven things about me:

1. You've read this one before, but my daily ritual is to have coffee in bed before I start my day. Yes even on workdays, I'm up a few minutes just to enjoy my coffee. This is one luxury I'm not giving up. It just gets my day going and a good cup of coffee is essential with lots of cream and sugar.

2. I really enjoy spending time with my boys. I do this as often as possible since one lives in Austin and one still lives at home, it's hard to get them together with their schedules. But any chance I have to spend time with them I do.

3. I am an Ina Garden fan. I watch Barefoot Contessa every chance I get.

4. I'm an avid Junker and go looking for things at least once a week, sometimes more.

5. I love to cook or bake. I'm always trying out new recipes, sometimes my family is not too keen on since they are so hung up on their favorites, but I still enjoy trying new things.

6. I love to spend time alone. I feel this rejuvenates and recharges me and gives me time to clear my mind and think.

7. I love to read magazines, but now that there are so many of them folding under I've turned more to blogs for inspiration. One magazine that is back that I still enjoy is Victoria.

Speaking of Victoria, I mentioned in my Blog Shop post yesterday that I would show you what you could do with old slips. When reading the latest issue of Victoria, I came across an article that featured Susie and Mark Holts' beautiful Florida home. If you aren't familiar with them they own "The Cat's Meow" shop in Florida and they have been featured lately in several other magazines and many times in the past in various magazines. I loved that she took old slips and displayed them across a valance.

Okay, now to pick seven others that I would like to know more about.

1. Dixie @ French Lique Texas
2. Amy @ Trailer Trash
3. Deb @ What's Deb Doing
4. Tiina @ Dream in Cream
5. Lynn @ White Washed
6. Mary @ Vintage Patina
7. Zita @ Mlle Magpie

I hope everyone is having an awesome Sunday!!

  8. We sure have a lot in common. I have to have at least one cup of coffee in bed (sorry no cream or sugar). I've always though Ina Garton was living my life & thankfully, I also like alone time. No sons but love spending time with my daughter. Thanks for all the info. Jan

  11. Love my cafe avec creme, would dearly love to meet Ina Garten as I've followed her for years, am alone most of the time which gives me too much time to think, and did I say how Ina makes me feel all is right with the world when I watch her.
