Tell it all Tuesday... Pt 2

Hi!! Hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas! I'm back with another edition of "Tell it all Tuesdays". Thank you all for reading my last one, and for all of the sweet comments. It really means a lot to me. This one won't be as long as the first one because I realized that I need to save some things for future posts. I guess I can be a blabber mouth sometimes. It will still be as random though. lol

A few of my favorite songs in the whole wide world are, Overjoyed by Steve Wonder, As We Lay by Shirley Murdock, Grandmas Hands by Bill Withers and Moody's Mood for Love by James Moody. I have more, but these are a few that represent special people and specific periods in my life. The songs make me think of my childhood, and I get all
warm and fuzzy when I hear them.

I'm 1/4 of the self proclaimed "Wine-Oh Clique". Three other ladies and myself get together once a month to hang out, drink different kinds of wine, and go to different restaurants. We have so much fun!

I was Snow Daze Queen in high school. I really liked my powder blue dress and dyed shoes from Payless.  =D

This is my most favorite picture in the whole wide world. Hubby and my daughter. It was such a sweet moment. It warms my heart to know that it was captured.

My family has a reunion every year hosted in Chicago. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!

Can you spot me??

I don't have a favorite food or color. But I don't like most veggies (I recently took a liking to zucchini). And I'm drawn to neutrals. I don't really like to cook, but I can. I know it's therapeutic for some people,
but it's mostly just work for me. I love it when Hubby decides to take the wheel and get down in the kitchen! I really like his chicken and fries.                                      

I can be quite confrontational if I need to be. I don't shy away from it.

I'm a good listener. I love being the shoulder to cry 
on for my friends and family (as long as it's not about the same thing over and over again).

I'm kind of a procrastinator. I do some of my best work under pressure... Really, I do!

I'm a Virgo. But I'm not a neat freak like they say most Virgos are. Some of the other traits are so me though. That always confused me.

One of these days, I want to go natural with my hair. I have such hair envy of my daughter. Little known fact about me... I secretly wanted a Jheri 
Curl as a child. HA!

I'm a homebody, but I get restless sometimes. Especially in the winter time. Cabin fever sets in during the cold winter months and drives me stir crazy.

My car covered in snow last winter. Crazy!

Well, that's it for now. Hope you enjoyed it. Thanks again for reading! Until next time... =D
