Come Join the Fun!!

Hannah over at Aspire is hosting the LAST week of her four-week Planting Chums event. There are a lot of exciting giveaways involved... So you really might want to check it out. =)

This week we're supposed to post "Four Fun Facts" about ourselves. So, here I go...



    ***

#1 Alright. This is kind of embarrassing... but I actually had to go to WWW.Merriam-Webster.Com and look up the definition of the word "chum". Haha! I just couldn't resist sharing that as my first "fun fact"! ;D I already had an idea of what it meant and Sis #1 did tell me herself, but I guess it's just one of those things you have to see for yourself! lol

#2 I'm 17 years old and still like to sit in my daddy's lap. :)

#3 I love thunderstorms, but only during the daytime. If they happen in the middle of the night I can't stand it and I end up staying awake until it passes!

#4 Okay, now this one might seem kind of weird, but... I'm afraid of the movies "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" & "Alice in Wonderland". lol ...Silly, I know! :D



***

Well, that was fun!

I *loved* reading your random facts, Taylor!

1. "Chum" is an interesting word, but I like it! It's fun... great for this link up. :)

2. HaHaHA... that's hilarious! :D

3. Oh, and I love it when there's a thunderstorm, especially at night. lol! It doesn't rain much here though, so that hardly ever happens. You would like it though! ;)

4. And I still think you're so funny about "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory." Did y'all go see "Alice in Wonderland"? We haven't seen it, but it does look a little.... creepy.

Anyway, I hope you're having a fabulous Friday!! :)

~ Love & Hugs,
Lindsay <3

P.S. - I just saw that you left me a couple of comments. Thanks! I'm glad you like my new profile picture. I don't know if I'll keep it or not. I don't like being in pictures AT ALL, so I've been hiding and using that Daniel Ridgeway Knight painting for a long time. Last night, I finally decided to put up a picture of myself. We'll see how long it lasts. =D

How fun! I might have to do that! :)

Eden said...

Taylor, just wanted to let you know that I've awarded you! Blessings!

Memzie said...

I already love you. I LOVE words and I love learning about them and understanding them.
I even look up names.

I adore thunderstorms! I know adore and thunderstorms shouldn't go in the same sentence, but in my mind in works.

Great facts!

Melody said...

Lol fun! I actually don't like either of those movies you mentioned either - they're just too strange for my tastes. :P

Sister #1 said...

Why did you look it up?! Did you not trust my superior knowledge? *crosses arms* :P

Yes, you do love to sit in dad's lap. You also love to STEAL his lap from other people. *clears throat* lol jk :D

You can't stand it? More like *cough*SCARED*cough*. jk :) Yes, I know, I was scared about the last storm, as well. Hey! That one was freaky. It could've wripped our room right off the house, right?! lol XD

Yeah. That is a weird fact. How can you be scared of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?! That's like.... a classic! Hey, remember the doctor's office, when we went to get our booster shots? *evil laugh* >=D

Hugs & Love,
Sissy #1
