Wee bit of Melissa

Time for Wee Bit of Me Wednesday!

What is your happiest childhood memory?
I think i have told this on my blog before, but it's been awhile. When i was about 8, i loved jumping on our neighbor's trampoline. She was a friend & i thought she was so lucky, because she had a trampoline and a swimming pool! Her house was just down the street, & i'd go over there everyday & we'd jump for hours! One day my sister walked over & said, "Lissa, mom & dad said you have to come home now." I was SO upset. I was having so much fun! I pitched a little fit, said good bye to my friend, & left. I believe i was whining & stomping my feet nearly the whole way home! When we were almost home, instead of walking thru the door we normally did, she covered my eyes & guided me to the backyard. She led me back there & moved her hand & said SURPRISE! & there was a TRAMPOLINE!!! Mom & Dad were out there laughing & smiling & dad was just finishing up putting it together! How great is that!? 

What is your middle name?

What's the habit you're most proud of breaking? 
the coca-cola addiction. i used to drink WAYYYY too many a day. I would say maybe 6-8 a day. Now i have one about every 2-3 months! Now i drink Sprite Zero occasionally & TONS of water!

What do you order when you order chinese food? 
I almost never get chinese food. I'm just not a big fan. I get a craving for chinese maybe once a year. And i like the Sesame Chicken.

What's the best bargain you've ever found at a thrift store or a garage sale
Not a clue. I never go to thrift stores. And i might not mind a garage sale, except i'll never get up early on Saturday morning just to go to one.

What's the best costume you've ever worn?
When i was about 11, i had the lead in the church Christmas Play. I played the Mayor's Wife...i forgot her name now. But it was set in the 1800's & my mom made me this gorgeous red dress that was the style of that period. I had a parasol, too. I still have that costume somewhere. 

Who's your favorite game show host?
I like Pat Sajak. 

What's your favorite breakfast food?
pancakes, muffins, or homemade biscuits! But not together! Haha.
i rarely have these though. on weekday mornings, i'll have cereal. on the weekend, i sometimes make omelettes or a fritatta. We're really lucky if the mother-in-law invites us over for breakfast, because that means eggs however you like 'em, homemade biscuits, sausage & bacon! mmmm!
What's your least favorite word?
There are a few dirty words that i hate so much i don't want to spell them out on my blog. :) I don't mean cuss words, actually, i'm talking about dirty words...slang words that mostly guys use to describe parts of the anatomy....

Describe something that happened to you for which you have no explanation? 
I know i've had times like this, but i can't think of anything right now!

Head on over to Leigh Ashley's to link up! :)


  1. I completely stopped drinking soda. There are times that I just NEED a Sonic coke, but I try to go 3-4 months without it. I still get headaches from not having it! It's weird, but lately I despise breakfast! I can't eat anything in the morning.


Comments are my favorite.
