I've Been Tagged!

Hello Sweet Friends,

Much to my surprise I was tagged
 this evening by Carol over at
 "An oasis in the Desert".
Thanks for thinking of me Carol....
once in awhile these things are fun,
and truly are a way to get to know
 others a little bit better.

and these are the questions.....

1.  Are you named after someone??

Yes,  my paternal Grandmother and I was
called Little Nellie for many years of my life.

2.  When was the last time you 

Monday night, while watching a yahoo video
of several Russian men trying to rescue a 
mature kitten out of a  suspension spring
under a truck, that had traveled 50 miles.
It was really so sweet how they were all
working together and laughing but truly
concerned about the kitten.  Once they got
 her out,  one man was really cuddling
and comforting her.  
What can I tell you......I am a crier......
and very moved by sweet and tender
things like that.

3.  Do you have Kiddos?

Most of you know I do, cause I talk about
them all the time.  My oldest is a son, named
 Scott,  and his wife Megan,
 My daughter is named DeeAnna and her
hubby is Jerry.
and We have one Grand Kiddo named
Brooklyn, who is almost 16 mos. old

Scott, Megan and Brooklyn

DeeAnna and Jerry

4. If you were another person,
  would you be a friend of yourself??

Yes,  cause I am a friend to myself now!!  lol

5.  Do you have a guilty pleasure??

Yes, it is a chocolate Elvis from Planet Smoothie

6.  Do you like handwriting?

I love handwriting, although since having a pinched
nerve in my neck for about the last 9 years my once
 good handwriting now looks terrible and is hard to
read, some days are better than others but I mostly
print now or write things on the computer, so folks
can read them.  lol

7.  What is your favorite cereal??

Right now, it is rice and corn chex, cause I am trying
to eat gluten free.

8.   What is the first thing you notice 
about people?

I think it is whether they look happy or not
or their countenance I guess you would say.

9.  What is the color of your eyes?

Dark Brown

10.  Scary movie or Happy Ending?

Definitely, movies with Happy Endings,  I hate scary
 movies, had enough scary in my life as a child.  lol

11.  Favorite TV Shows??

We really don't watch a lot of TV, unless it is movies,
so they would be true stories, inspirational movies,
comedy's or romantic comedy's, and the Christian station.
When we go away on vacation and have cable we
 like HGTV (not as much as I used to tho, since 
they hardly have any decorating anymore
and animal planet.
I know, I know.......we are strange!!  lol

12.  Do you like Winter or Summer?? 

I have to say I function better in Winter cause of the
cooler weather,  it is a joy not to have hot flashes
and times of being cold.............Bliss for me!!

But I do love the beauty of Summer and like to get
a tan, but just can't stand to be out in it long since
we live in Florida and sometimes have 100 degree

13. Hugs or kisses?

Definitely a hugger.......

14.  Do you have a special talent??

 I think I have a talent for making things looks pretty, 
and for making others feel special and welcomed,
and have had others tell me that as well.

15.  Where were you born?

I was born in the Florida Panhandle...

16.  what are your hobbies??

I like reading, decorating, making cards, setting
pretty tables, working in the yard, (but not as
much as I used to since the pinched nerve, can't
do as much without paying for it  pain wise!) 
watching movies, visiting with family and 
friends, and of course, blogging!!  lol
and in the past year visiting Asheville, N.C
 where our daughter and son-in-love now live.

17. Do you have any pets?

Yes, we have a beautiful and sweet natured
black and white kitty, who adopted us!!   lol
We are really allergic to cats, but we thought
someone dropped her off and started feeding
her cause we felt bad for her..........and we
thought well, she is an outside cat, that
 wouldn't be so bad.....but she has become
an inside cat too, now..........but not
 all day long thankfully!  lol

18.  Favorite movie?

Actually It is hard to pick cause I have at
least two.................

You've Got Mail -It is a romantic comedy and
just a fun movie and I love Meg Ryan's
 perkiness and she and Tom Hanks are
just great together, and loved the ending.

The perfect stranger - It is really
a captivating movie,
There are 2 by that name.....the one
I like was made in 1994, and has a woman
with long curly hair on the cover.

19.  What color is your car??

I drive a white Mini Van and I love her!

20.  What do you want to be
 when you grow up?

I am still trying to figure that out, as I have
worn many hats over the years..........and
liked or loved most of them.  Actually I am
 pretty happy with who I am as a person, and 
think that is more important that what I do,
Yet I also know...... that God isn't finished
 with me yet!

Well, there you have it....and I am gonna
tag a few other sweet Blog Friends.

  1. What a neat idea! Now You've got me thinking! Thank you, Nellie. I'll have to go to Carol's blog and thank her as well!
    Love you, Nellie!

  2. Fun post, though I think I knew all of it already!! :o) Love the kitty pic!!

    Hugs to you...back to MIL house for a couple of hours today, then we are finished. I took a fall, busted open my knee, and messed up my back and neck. Doing a little better, but will def be going to see the chiro! Just gotta keep praising God and chugging along!
    Love ya,

  3. Hi Nellie! How fun to get to know you a little better! It seems you had a rough childhood. I see you post and write little snippets here and there. It's wonderful how you got yourself to such a positive state of mind. Good for you!


  4. This was fun! It's always a treat to get to know a bit more about someone.

    Did you know I was born in the Florida Panhandle too? I am a Navy baby, and my dad was stationed at Pensacola at the time of my birth. I am the only person in several generations of my family to be born outside of our hometown of Pittsburgh, PA.

    I have to say that you really DO have a knack for making people feel welcome and special...actually, for making them feel loved!!

    You are a dear, and I'm so glad that blogging allowed our paths to reconnect.

    Happy 4th to you!


  5. Thanks so much for participating, Nellie! I just love finding out a bit more about my bloggy friends. Had to giggle about your kitty. They do have a way of worming their way into your heart.


Special thanks to all who take the time to leave comments..........They are very encouraging and very appreciated. I enjoy every one of them so much!!
May the Lord Bless You!!
