Pin It Now!

I was tagged by LeAnn ~Pink Icing on the Cake

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

What was I doing 10 years ago: I was unhappily married and just months away from finding out he was having an affair...What I didn't know at the time is that it was all a blessing in disguise...I'm so much happier now!

Five things on my to-do list today:
work 8:30-5:00
cook dinner
do the dishes
straighten up the house
watch TV
(this is a typical M-F day)

Snack I enjoy:
chips & dip
Brie Cheese

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Quit work!
Buy my own cottage, nothing huge...just something quaint.
Buy my kids new cars
Give my family members a lot of money
Have a huge party weekend for my blogging friends on Martha's Vineyard!
Help some single moms who are struggling

Three of my bad habits:
Driving too fast
eating too fast
not enough patience

Five places I have lived:
(I've only lived in the South Bay Area of San Francisco, CA)
San Jose, CA
Saratoga, CA
Mountain View, CA
Sunnyvale, CA
Campbell, CA

Five jobs I have had:
Administrative Assistant
Chauffeur for Limo Company
Sales Clerk
Amusement Park worker
Day Care Provider

Five people I want to know more about (a nice way of saying TAG!!): I won't tagged usual.

I took these photos of my flowers yesterday when I got home from work. Everything is really starting to get lush and bloom!

Hi Cindy, I'm sooooo EXCITED because today as my Mom and I were shopping at Wal Mart I found a copy of the magazine with your home in it! HOORAY, I can hardly wait to pour a glass of tea and relax on the swing with the new magazine. Ksarra

Gorgeous flowers. Not really having many in Colorado yet. You're lucky to live in California!

I just came across your blog and the first thing I saw was your beautiful pink rose. I just moved from CA to TX and I sorely miss my little rose garden full of pink roses. Yours is so pretty, I can almost smell it! Thank you for sharing it.

Hi Cindy,
Your flowers are so so beautiful. It must be the warmer weather in California. Not so here yet.
Loved, loved, loved the article in Romantic Country Magazine. You must be so proud.

I just love learning more about you..
Your flowers are perfection.... seems all you touch turns in to something magnificent....

Rosemary said...

Wow! A limo driver? Did you drive the limo fast?
Love the flower photo Cindy. My flowers are starting to get lush too. I think you get more rain than we do though.
Have a nice night,

Glenda said...

I'd really have to think of five things to put in those categories.
Do you have your roses trained on something like a trellis ?
I would love to have lot's of roses in my back yard in every color.



Hi Cindy,
What a great tag. Its funny how certain things can be a blessing in disguise isnt it :) Funny how things work out in the end...

Oooh a blog party at Marthas Vineyard sounds FANTASTIC, id even put aside my fears and hop on a plane for that one!

Beautiful Rose too by the way.

have a lovely weekend!
Shannon :)

Cindy, hello there! This is my first comment on a blog ever, because you've definitely inspired me. I've been reading your blog for a few months now. I was asking the sales clerk about the magazine you are in, i almost told her, "my friend is in this issue." LOL. Not yet here in Philippines though. Its funny how it seems I've known you!:) Anyway, you are talented and beautiful, thank you for sharing. Would love to see a pic of your kids on here as well. Take care, Christine

Cindy, Your flowers are so beautiful! It snowed here today in the Pacific NW! I loved reading about you and also loved your article in the Romantic Country mag. I know what you mean about the blessing in disguise. I am recently divorced with a 22 yr old daughter and we love every minute. We are both so much happier. May your life be blessed! (It looks like it already is!) Blessings, Victoria Lynn

I'm the same...if I won a bazillion dollars, I'd still live in a smaller cottage somewhere. I'm a small cottage gal!

Saw you in Romantic Cottage & was pleased to continue with your blogspot. Hopefully mine will be as nice someday. Donaher
