Meet Me on Monday

Borrowed from my friend Kathy's blog. Kathy has a wonderful book blog but its also about her fave bags and Bon Jovi. Like I said its a WONDERFUL blog. Gotta love that it has Bon Jovi and books and because of Kathy's influence I actually bought a new bag last week that wasn't made out of denim twill or blue jean material. What do you think Kathy? It's not leather and just a cheapy brown slouchy bag from Walmart but I really like it.

Java at has some of the best Blog Hops. Here's an early edition of Meet Me on Monday!

From her blog... Welcome to the 39th edition of
"Meet Me On Monday!"
Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?" I know them...but yet I don't know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!
Every Sunday Never Growing Old will post five get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!
"Its a great way to to meet new friends and for others to get to know me Monday at a time!!!" quoted by the Chacogirl!! I will make this SIMPLE and FUN!!!
1. What jewelry do you wear 24/7?

I don't wear any jewelry because I'm allergic. My husband has only bought me a wedding ring and we went to a pawn shop and got that cause I knew I'd never get to really wear it. It was weird but while I was pregnant both times I actually was able to wear it. Gotta love how hormones and body chemistry play on you during that time. Now my dear daughter is 12 almost 13 so its been that long since I wore it.

2. Do you twirl your spaghetti or cut it?

Well, when I make spaghetti at home I break the noodles in half before cooking them but I do twirl them after its on my plate.

3. How many siblings do you have?

There are 5 of us total. I have two sisters and two brothers. Now that said let me just say that my parents really had 3 sets of family to raise. My two brothers and I were all born within the first 3 1/2 years they were married. I'm the eldest, then my next oldest brother was born when I was 18 months old and the baby brother was born when older brother was 14 months old. After 6 years of him being the baby little sister was born. Then when I was 19 years, 9 months and 12 days (yeah, I counted) my baby sister was born. We're all extremely close in spite of all the various age differences. Baby sister was about 4 when she became an Aunt from baby brother. LOL. Of course in our family that wasn't weird as my baby Aunt on my Mother's side became an Aunt at 6 weeks old to my oldest cousin and is only about 3 years older than me. Okay, I got off base and went back into the family a bit. Sorry.

4. Were you named after anyone?

Yes I was named after my Mother's sister. I'm Karen Jean named after Bobbie Jean.

5. Coke or Pepsi?

Always Coke or Dr. Pepper unless I don't have a choice of those two. Pepsi I will only drink if its a fountain drink. I just can't stand the aftertaste of it in a can or bottle.


  1. LOVE the bag, Karen! Who cares if it's from Walmart? Some of my favorite bags come from there or Target! I don't discriminate. If I love a bag, I love it... regardless of where I bought it! And, you know...if you buy a purse from Wally World or Target, it just leaves you more money to buy another purse! And that's what it's all about...right? Right!
    Thanks for the shout-out!

  2. Thanks Kathy. I always get my bags at Wally World or Target. One of these days though I'll have a real whatever. I just want one. LOL. I did find a cute little store called Compass that sells bags and accessories in Waco. Their prices weren't really very bad either.

  3. love purses!! but I won't spend more than $40 on one (more often they have to be under $20). hubby has tried to get me to buy a "real" purse (like coach - ha!). I can't see buying a purse that costs more than I have in my wallet.

  4. If you like your bag that is all that counts. Just stopping by from Meet me on Monday.

  5. I enjoyed reading your answers. I drink diet coke sweetened with Splenda. I'm addicted. At night I drink Diet Rite Cola. It's caffeine free. I used to wear jewelry. It hurts my skin now that I'm old. I hope you have a great week. I didn't see your Meme for this Monday. Have a great week. Doylene

  6. Thanks for stopping by Doylene. I didn't get to do the Monday Meme this week. It was a hectic Monday after spring break the week before.
