My friend Evelyn from Become a Healthier You tagged me in one of her recent posts.michelle

I am responding to her tag to share 11 things about myself (tried to keep most of them interesting) as well as answers her 11 questions to me.  Then I will ask 11 new questions of my bloggy friends that I’ll tag at the end of this post. I hope you’ll join in on the fun.

I meant to post this yesterday but got caught up with my son at a special event. Anyway, without further ado…

  3. I love summer and can’t stand winter
  4. I work full time out of the home two hours away and run a business part time from home.
  5. I come from a small family. I have no aunts or uncles
  6. I danced tap, jazz and modern for over 15 years

My Answers to the 11 Questions Asked by Evelyn

  1. What is your favorite fruit? Watermelon
  2. What is your favorite vegetable? It’s a toss up between spinach and broccoli
  3. What is one thing you like about blogging? I get to share my thoughts and ideas, and experience on a variety of topics.
  4. What is your favorite social networking site (Twitter or Facebook)? Facebook.
  5. Why is that social networking site your favorite? I feel like I connect better there. Twitter I like but sometimes forget to update and it can be challenging reaching people there.
  6. How often do your exercise? I’m proud to now say 6 days a week, alternating cardio with muscle and strength training.
  7. What’s your favorite TV show? I don’t have a favorite really but I have those I watch regularly: Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, House of Payne, Switched at Birth (yes I do watch ABC family), Army Wives (can’t wait for this to return) and Drop Dead Diva (another I’m waiting to return)
  8. What book have your read, that left a lasting impression on you? The Bible. That’s a given but I recently read this book called Farther Then I Meant to Go, Longer than I Meant to Stay. A powerful story about how bad decisions are based on not truly following Christ. In this case, it was a romantic choice gone bad. I won’t say another word. You gotta read this book!
  9. What is your all time favorite song? I don’t have one but my favorite genre is gospel.
  10. Which animals do you prefer the most (cats or dogs)? Dogs but I have a cat since they keep mice away.
  11. What’s your favorite exercise? Jogging on the elliptical machine. Definitely not for its effectiveness, I just like to do it.

  1. Hey Michelle,

    I enjoyed learning more about you!

    You got me beat with your exercise routine. I must do better. :)

    Gospel is my favorite genre too. The book you shared sounds like a very good read..you know me, I love reading.

    Thank you for participating in the tag. I’ve met some new bloggers too.

    Take care!


  2. Hi Michelle,

    Thank you for tagging me. I love watermelon too. The bible really has left an impression on my life and I also exercise about 5-6 times a week. My post will be up this weekend.

  3. It was so fun to read your tag, Michelle! I see we have a lot in common. My favorite veggies are spinach and broccoli, I am in love with the elliptical machine (though definitely not because it is effective lol), melons are my favorite fruit, and you know I love THAT BOOK! Mind you, the one that we both finished ahead of time lol.

    I’m gonna do this tag and post it on Friday. I think I’ve done it like 5 times but I’m still gonna answer these questions just for you :)

    BTW~ When is Drop Dead Diva returning? I’ve been waiting to see how everything pans out with Jane and Grayson! I hear Kim K is supposed to be on the next season -_-

    • LOL see now. I want to read another book by that author. Do you know of any? Also, what’s the last book you all read in the club? Was it good? If so, I want to go back and read it!

      I wasn’t sure DDD was returning. I hope they don’t cancel it. That always happens when you get into a show you really like. Lawd@Kim K. That woman has NO acting skills at all. She had a little scene on the now retired, One Life to Live. That’s probably what killed the show LOL!

    • Thanks Shari :-) I’ve lost another 5.1 pounds bringing me to a grand total of………….tadadadda……12.8 pounds!

  4. Wow! That’s a tall order. LOL
    I will try to complete this tomorrow…
    I just remembered I owe Shelli a post also. Yikes!!!

    I had no idea you had older children. You look so young and vibrant!
    I love the same two veggies. LOL
