some stuff about me`

When Phyllis was 5 I got her the book ‘all about me’ by Dr. Seuss. Here are my answers (some of them!) since today is my birthday. Turned 34. It’s 3 birthdays more than my mom got, never really thought I’d live this long. But I have a beautiful daughter who makes me want to live until she’s 100! I have a God who loves me like crazy and I am excited about the coming year’s wondrous possibilities. That’s the one good thing about a birthday on New Year’s Day; you start the year completely new.

My favorite teacher’s name is: Bacile, she was my 2nd grade teacher, and I loved Mr. Lawara who taught science in 8th grade and helped me with math in 9th grade.

I am not a great whistler
I hum better than I whistle
My favorite musical instrument is the drums

I love that list!
What's a Roma salad? I think I need one.

Margie said...

Roma salad is the salad at my fave rest in Eastern Market (Roma's)- lettuce, tomatoes, eggs, chic peas, peppers, vinegar and oil, spices... and sometimes with Chicken, and it's SUPER yummy!

Pat said...

Sounds like a complete meal! I love salads like that!
