Drama Mama had this meme on her blog. Here is my rendition...

Where is your cell phone? purse
Your significant other? My Blessing.
Your hair? Easy to do. Blow upside down and go. Takes 5 -7 minutes tops (wet to dry and styled) From preshower to walkout the door I pride myself in being ready in 20 minutes.
Your mother? The best. I aim to be like her.
Your father? Mellowing with age. Likes to travel and now at retirement an entrepreneur.
Your favorite thing? Spending time with those I love and traveling.
Your dream last night? Cannot recall. I slept deep
Your favorite drink? sweet mint tea or water with lime.
Your dream/goal? To see our children grow up to be happy with the life they have, whatever it may be and to retire with my Big Daddy to the beach in 10 years and counting.
The room you’re in? den
Your ex? Happy he's my ex.
Your fear? One of our kids or my spouse dying , or something bad happening . I think about it too often and sometimes it almost stifles me. I think it relates to burying 6 of my close friends when I was between all of the age of 17 and 23. Of course I have other friends and relatives pass on, but these young years and losing so many of my young friends during that short time period but hurt me, but I do think it made me a stronger person. I do, however carry it with me and will for the rest of my life (the pain of losing them).
Where do you want to be in 6 years? Happy. I don't think I would change much than where I am now. Except maybe if I could win the publishers Clearing house, Big Daddy and I would have a boat and pay cash for our beach property and he can retire... but not much else in our life would change as far as plans and purchases.
Where were you last night? At home.
What you’re not? pretentious, fancy, prejudice and a meat eater
Muffins? Sure but on a rare occasion. I do not eat breakfast and that is when I might partake.
One of your wish list items? hardwood floors
Where you grew up? Hoover .
The last thing you did? sing really loud-the song-Paradise by Tesla. My Fav. Tesla song.
What are you wearing? jeans and a top.
Your TV? My husbands dream, its to big and garish.
Your pets? a herd. It really is ridiculous. But they are all loved.
Your computer? My outlet
Your life? Blessed. Hectic. Full. More than I'd hoped for.
Your mood? Content and happy.
Missing someone? My son who is at the state tennis tournament.
Your car? mom-mobile. It's no a jeep.
Something you’re not wearing? socks
Favorite store? At Home in Homewood Alabama
Your summer? It can't come soon enough. (Two bare feet on the dash board...and...suntanned toes in the sand tropical drink in my hand)
Like someone? I like everyone until they give me a reason not to. I've never been one to judge someone based on other people's opinion.
Your favorite color? Depends on what the item is, but overall I'd say either black or turquoise .
When is the last time you laughed? last night talking to Big Daddy and then Freddy about DWTS
Last time you cried? When I laughed until I cried at the Mexican Restaurant on Saturday night with my mom, aunt, uncle and cousin Gina. I was so tired I got silly and couldn't stop laughing, then crying.
Who will repost this? Come on.... join in! And let me know if you do.
