Meet Me On Mondays

Meet Me On Mondays is another way for everyone to get to know who I am just a little better.  It is hosted by Java over at Never Growing Old.  I would love to here your answers to these questions here in my comment section or over at your own blog.  Just link up and share who you are with all of us!

Today's questions are:

1. Do you have any New Year's resolutions?  I'm not a resolution kind of girl.  I don't think I should make a resolution just because it's the new year.  I make resolutions when I find something in my life needs to change.  I believe a New Year's resolution is something you make because everyone expects you to, but you kind of know you won't keep it.  I did just recently decide to "try" not compair myself to others and not to "try" to be the perfect person I think people are expecting me to be.  We shall see how that turns out. The second one will be the hardest for me!

2.  What food item are you craving right now?  That's funny, because I am sitting here eating nacho cheese with crackers (its one of those prepackaged deals I got for Will) and drinking a Dr. Pepper (which I am addicted to, so always crave).

3.  When is your birthday? March 31st!

4.  What were you doing an hour ago?  Cleaning out my laundry room.  I took my Christmas decorations down today and was trying to organize and store my totes which hold it all.  I store it all in the laundry room, so had to clean it up and make room for the extra tote I added this year.  (That's what happens whey you add to your Christmas decor.)

5.  Last thing you cooked?  Since I am doing writing this post on Sunday night to post for Monday morning (something I hardly ever do), the last thing I cooked was dinner.  I fried some chicken which Will and I at as is, and Hubby added his favorite buffalo sauce to his.  So healthy I know!


  1. Love the cat in the basket! Is it a Maine Coon Cat?? I have a Maine Coon Cat that could be your cats brother..

  2. Totally agree with you on the resolutions and LOVE the weight loss vs get a bigger basket! LOL

  4. Leslie, I don't know for sure what kind of cat it is. I found the picture on photobucket and thought it was cute. Glad you liked it!

  5. Love the new blog design! Very cute!!
    I almost used that picture of the cat for my Monday post. Too funny.
    I think that trying to relax and realize you don't have to be perfect should be a challenge. One day at a time, you can do it!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I like your outlook on resolutions! I am hoping to keep mine but I am just looking at it more as working towards it. I wish I could change over night but thats just not realistic.
    It looks like you like to connect with a lot of other bloggers. Here is a magazine that I am a editor of called The Barrel. You should become a sponsor and it will get more people to connect with you. If your interested email me at mylifeasarealhousewife@gmail.com

  7. What you said about Resolutions really resonated with me. Especially the part about others expectations. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Just stopping in from Mom Bloggers Club, and your "resolutions" pic cracked me up! I'll be back! Kristen, www.trianglemomsonmain.com
