My Tag is Showing 22 comments

My relaxing weekend consisted of some firsts…

  • Finally had some boiled crawfish since season started
  • Saw The Wolf of Wall Street…pure entertainment that no child should walk in on
  • Enjoyed the premiere of Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN)‘s new docu-series, Love in the City
  • Had an hour long phone conversation with my little sister past midnight (she’ll always be my little sister no matter how old she is)

My new blogging buddy, Courtney at The Brown Girl with Long Hair has tagged me along with some other great bloggers. So please take a few minutes to learn some new things about me via Courtney’s questions.

    I still know you! Nothing shocked me here! THe first thing I notice about people is their swag (as in, do they have any, lol)!

  • Stacey Gannett

    Oh I used to seriously love me some Cap N Crunch Berries! LOL! It was even worse while I was pregnant with my oldest! I love happy endings, and cry often during movies and give me an 80’s movie any day! LOL! Sadly, I still live in the same town that I was born in, in Illinois! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

      Nothing wrong with staying close to home. I moved all around the country for 10 years before I moved back 80 miles from my hometown. Thanks Stacey!

      The Bahamas. Oooh, I have been wanting to visit there and stay at The Atlantis. Thanks Yvonne for always linking up to Traffic Jam Weekend.

  • LaKita

    Great post…nice way to get to know you better! I am right there with you on the popcorn and boxed wine…it is just something about having it in the evening that screams relaxation 😉

    • beingawordsmith Post author

      Everyone is feeling me on the boxed wine and the popcorn. Love it! Thanks, LaKita.

  • Michelle

    I loved Captain Crunch back in the day too. I think if I tried to eat it now, it would probably make me sick. Too much sugar. I’m all for happy endings and 80s movies too! It was fun to read this…we have a lot in common. 🙂

    • beingawordsmith Post author

      So much sugar which is why it was my favorite as a kid! My grandmother always had some on hand for me.

  • Kim

    This was fun to read!
    I’m right there with you on wine (except white for me) and popcorn!!!
    And, I didn’t used to be a crier but now I cry during shows, books, movies, commercials, sporting events, reading blogs – it really doesn’t take much these days so I’m going to blame it on my age and hormones!!!

    You know I almost responded to your FB status yesterday about Wolf on Wall Street. I was watching it while Christopher was outside playing. I about flipped the remote across the living room trying to turn the television off when he walked in on a particular scene. It thought it was very good. It’s the last one I’ve seen that were nominated for Best Picture. I definitely think it would have won some stuff.

    I was born in Chester, PA in a Catholic hospital. Mom said the nuns were wearing habits and they were mean.

      Ha Ha! I can picture you diving for the TV. Deuce EXPECTS that whatever my husband and I are watching on TV is too adult for him. So he always walks into the room with his hands over his ears. But he doesn’t neglect to stare at the screen so he can get a peek at whatever it is.

  • kita

    Loved getting to know you. I hate my handwriting it’s hideous (in my state farm voice) I love happy endings especially when you don’t see it coming in movies.

  • Courtney Conover

    Thank you for playing, Kimberly!!! LOVE the pic of The Deuce! And I am so glad to know a little more about you…

    Oh! And by the way, how clever was your tweet earlier — and the title of this post: “My Tag is showing.” See? Why didn’t *I* think of that?!

    You’re awesome.

  • Jen

    I’m right there with you on so many of your answers (yes, boxed red wine is one of them)! This was really fun to read and get to know you a little.

    • beingawordsmith Post author

      Thank you, Jen. Happy to know I’m not the only boxed wine fan who claims it. LOL
