Pleasant surprise

I was surprised and pleased when I discovered the award that DeeBee (Rain or Shine) gave me, and I just had to play along because I enjoyed her post so much. The rules are: Share seven things about yourself and then pass it on to seven people.

As you know my memory is often sketchy so I am not even going to waste time looking for a post that I already did about seven things about me. However, I do believe I did one. You should be a dear and search my blog to see if you can find it. Why? Because then you can randomly read other posts that I wrote without me just giving you a link. And because I am feeling a little lazy.

Let's see... Here are my seven things:

1. I adore flowers, dolphins, heart-shaped items and, of course, chocolate.
2. Not only do all of my children's names start with the letter A, but all of the girls have similar middle names. All of the children's birthdays are the 20 something of their birth month and my birthday is the 20th as well.
3. I had my gall bladder removed when I was only about 24 years old and almost died. (They discovered it was gangrened. I know, Ewwww, right?)
4. I almost drowned three times. (Hey! There's a bad theme going on here. LOL)
5. Surprisingly, I really love the ocean and most water stuff, but - not surprising: I get scared being in the water. Even still I've been banana boating in Jamaica, parasailing in Florida, I love swimming under the water in a pool and I want to go jet skiing.
6. For four years I was called Airman Lloyd (my maiden name). Yup, I was in the Air Force.
7. While in Panama City Beach, Florida, (in 2002) I had the wonderful opportunity of swimming with dolphins. I don't swim that well so I didn't do that part, but a dolphin kissed me at the Gulf World Marine Park and I keep the postcard pic of it on a bulletin board on my desk.

I am pressed for time tonight so I am going to be lazy (AGAIN!) and pass this on to the first seven bloggers on my list. I say bloggers because my #1 reader is my BFF Frankie and he doesn't have a blog. He does, however, have to IM me or email me his seven things AND they have to be things I don't know about him.


  1. whew! I justdid this also..try checking it out@!

    dropping by on Holy Saturday!


  2. Your seven things were very interesting. I was most pleasantly surprised about you being in the air force since my son is going through that right now.

    It's a little funny that you are scared being in water but you have done so much water actitivy. I think you must be incredibly brave.

    AND you've almost died 4 TIMES!! I think you are going to be around for a very long time. Ha!

  3. hopping here.. have a wonderful and safe weekend!

  4. Cool! I was just getting ready to pass this on to you since Jamie gave it to me!! Love your list!

  5. Ok I guess I'll have to IM you my 7 things.

  6. Congrat's on that award, it's a great one I think getting to know more about the person behind the blogging. I enjoyed posting mine's as well when I got it. A kiss from a dolphin, aww!! Can I just say surviver you are. I can't even swim so naturally deep water scare me but I so want to jet ski soon, Lol!!


  7. That's so cool!I love dolphins and chocolate as well! ;)
    Thanks for tagging me.

  8. I so forgot about my Vision Board, thx for the reminder!

    Swimming with dolphins? Fun! My oldest and I went on a Disney Cruise once and swam with StingRays, which was fun. She wants to swim with dolphins the next time we get the opportunity.

  9. That is some list! Very interesting!! I've invited you to Cocktail Hour at my blog! I figured you could use some fun these days! :)

  10. I love the dolphin photo what a lovely memory.
    Funny about your children's initials all the girls in my family for the last 3 generations names start wit the letter M


What's up men & women of my world! I am all a-giggle that you decided to comment. You're what make this world go 'round... ya know? This "world." I love you! Smooches. :-)
