OOPS....I've been tagged

That sweet BRITTNAY at adelinesshabbycottage.blogspot.com just tagged me for THE 8 THINGS MEME...

8 things I am passionate about:

1. My God and my faith

2. My family

3. My family life...I love doing things with my family from cooking together to thrifting to playing in the park.

4. Making our home comfortable and warm.

5. Baking...I love to bake but I'm not crazy about cooking.

6. My relationship with friends

7. Movies. I LOVE movies of all kinds.

8. Chocolate is soooo my passion.

*******

8 things I'd like to do before I die.

1. Own a bright red convertable, drive it for a week and then give it to one of the grandkids...How fun would that be!!

2. Travel to France with beautiful daughter and go, go go to French flea markets.

3. Eat in some of the little inns and pubs in France, England and Austraila.

4. Take a cruise with ALL of my family !!

5. To meet George W. Bush. (I am smart enuf to know someone is going to boo me on this but it's ok.....)

6. Be able to afford to give my hubby the trip to Alaska he has always wanted.

7. Be able to "meet" my great -grandbabies. Hopefully, I'll be around long enuf to have them.

8. To be able to set up trust funds for each of my grandchildren. (Just in case I should win the lottery!!)

*****

8 things I say often:

1. One of these days, I'm gonna do that!

2. Come over and lets have lunch and play cards.

3. I will NEVER get thru all this traffic!" My grandkids tease me about that all the time because I think I'll never get across and be able to turn into traffic. Of course, I always get a break! :)

4. "Are you kiddin' me?"

5. "Great balls of fire" and "Good Grief" (I have a few other choice words that I say every now and then, but, underneath my breath!!) :)

6. Be sure and turn out the lights...

7. Will you adjust the heat? It's too hot/cold in here!"

8. I will NEVER go back to that store again!! But then, as soon as I say that, they run this fabulous sale and I have to sneak back in, head down........:(

********

8 books I've read recently: I do love to read and have at least one, sometimes 2, books going at all times....it is, by far, my greatest escape and enjoyment.

1. THE GIRL

2. THE HORSE WHISPERER

3. WANDERLUST

4. KING OF THE HILL

5. THIS CHILD IS MINE

6. LEAP OF FAITH

7. WALL OF BRASS

8. WITHOUT REMORSE

******

8 songs I can listen to over and over:



1. I JUST CALLED TO SAY I LOVE YOU

2. IF YOU'RE GOING THRU HELL

3.. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE

4. PRETTY WOMAN

5. HE STOPPED LOVING HER TODAY

6. JUST GIVE IT AWAY

7. Theme from SUMMER PLACE

8. Theme from TITANIC

**************



8 THINGS THAT ATTRACT ME TO MY BEST FRIENDS:


There are no 8 things that attract me to my best friends....I just love them for who they are.

The most thankful thing, however, is that they love ME, with all my failings. I am blessed.

******

8 people who should totally do this MEME....and it is HARRRRRD!!

****
SO MANY HAVE DONE THIS AND I KNOW HOW BUSY EVERYONE IS AT THIS TIME OF YEAR. IF YOU'VE NOT PLAYED AND WOULD LIKE TO, PLEASE DO.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Loved your answers to the tag. In case I don't "see" you again until after Christmas (I am not too sure how often I will get my computer once my "boys" are home). May the Peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ be with you during this holiday season, and all the days after.

Love and hugs.

Oh bj, I've missed so many of your posts, I don't know where to start! Loved your chicken and dumplings - yum! Those cookies oookies looked scrumptious, and I loved your holiday plate and Christmas stocking. Loved reading all about you, and I can just picture you in that red convertible! :)

Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!

bj....I wish that Santa Claus brings you that red convertible!!!! You would be awesome behind the wheel!! I still can't get over the fact that you will be 70 in little more than a week. I want to be you when I'm 70 and I'm determined to "see" 70!!!! You are an inspiration!!

I wanted to come and say hello, and to wish you and your family a very blessed Christmas. I wish you happiness, joy, laughter and lov this season and only the very best of everything for the coming year!!
