Maudie Mae tagged me for this one…..
My Blog Name is: Grace For Gayle
But people usually call me: Gayle or Honey or Mom or “Hey you with all the kids!”
I was born: In Northern California and grew up fishing on Lake Shasta with my Dad. (He had no sons so when the last baby came along (me) he made do and taught me all the boy stuff. Which probably explains my ability to tell a good poop story and my wide repertoire of sarcastic retorts and just-a-little-bit-naughty jokes.
Until I wound up in: The gorgeous green (and rather damp) Pacific Northwest.
My occupation is/was: Pre kids – I worked at a Pediatric office, Post Kids – teacher, boo-boo kisser, hair stylist, chef, chauffer, playmate, on-call lover, administrative assistant, and napper extraordinaire.
My favorite color is: Uh, look at the blog….but I really like green too!
My favorite hobby is: chocolate tasting, exercise as long as it doesn’t make me sweat, shopping for something expensive but finding it for a fraction of the price, and reading.
My favorite season is: Fall when it’s still sunny and the rains haven’t started yet.
A few favorite books are: For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhahn, Babywise by Gary Ezzo (Oh, don’t shoot me. If you aren’t legalistic with it, it’s a great book!) The Message (It’s making me understand the Bible in amazing ways!)
Some of my favorite music is: Tobymac, Monk & Neagle, Jeff Deyo, Shaun McDonald, Third Day
My favorite kinds of movies are: Romantic Comedies or Adventure movies that don't involve all the blood and guts.
My favorite food indulgence is: Chocolate or Pizza
My favorite drink indulgence is: English Breakfast Tea with French Vanilla Coffee Mate or Starbucks Chai Tea
My favorite dessert indulgence is: Ding-ding-ding…chocolate again!
One weird thing about me is: Oh Gosh! Emily, can you help me narrow this one down?
One of my fantasies is: I’m just not going there.
One of my pet peeves is: Pious people, belly button lint (my husbands, not mine), when the phone rings and nobody is there…oh sorry, just one huh?
