Updating My Blog Roll & a Tag

My Blog Roll & Seven Random Things you may not know about me!

I would love to add you to my blog roll if you missing and are a regular visitor here.

I have lots of you in Google Reader, so I don't always realize if someone is missing from my blogroll, so just leave me a comment, and I'll add you!

Sometimes I visit blogs by using Google Reader, sometimes by the 'following' feature in the dashboard, and sometimes by the blog roll. It's really nice to have so many choices!

I was tagged by Debilou at
Thanks Debilou for thinking of me!

Seven Random Things about me:

1. I'm a lifetime member of Weight Watchers. (I don't go to the meetings obviously-but am going to get back on track)

2. I love chocolate! (might be why I need to go to Weight Watchers-lol)

3. I can't drive a standard shift-just never could learn!

4. I've always been scared of really big dogs! (and little dogs that bark)

5. I drive a Nissan Murano.

6. I'm kind of hot natured-but am getting more cold natured as I get older!

7. I have never smoked a cigarette in my life-took one pouf in high school, and that was enough for me!

I'm passing this TAG on to anyone who read all the way to the end and is looking for blogging material! LOL

Good Morning, Diane!

I love chocolate, too ;)

Thanks for having me on your Blog Roll. I use the same things you do to read blogs, plus I use that feature at facebook, too.

I need a schedule for blogging, reading blogs and commenting...maybe that should be my New Year's Resolution!

Have a great Sunday!

I enjoyed your "Seven Random Things," Diane.

It's always fun to get to know our blogging friends a little better through tags like this one.

Picket said...

Morning girl! I'm on your! lol I love chocolate & I could never learn to drive a stick shift! lol Hope you are having a great weekend girl!

Darlene said...

That was fun reading about you. I LOVE chocolate also, have wanted to get a Murano (they are just so cute!) and am getting more cold natured as I get older too!

Gone said...

Chocolate? Did you say you LOVE Chocolate? do I!!! I heard it's supposed to be GOOD for you!!! LOL!!

Diane, could you do me a huge favor and change my blog name to the new one? Jan & Tom's Rose Haven in your blog-roll...I don't want to confuse people. (Well, secretly, I do...but don't tell anyone...LOL!!)

Good morning Diane. I can't drive a stick either! I have also never smoked. YUCK YUCK YUCK!!!

I was at the hair dressers on Friday morning and some woman came in with her little dog that sat on her lap and every time someone would walk buy her he had a vicious bark!!

I just might consider this tag. Blogging material is hard to come by sometimes.

take care,

Joanna said...

Diane, I figured we'd have a lot in common! I also love chocolate, have trouble driving a stick shift, have at one time belonged to WW, and am getting colder as I age. LOL! Unfortunately, I did smoke at one point (and am now the worst reformed smoker on earth -- I was one of "those" people who voted to outlaw smoking in public places like restaurants in Florida!), and I love dogs... but am afraid of certain breeds who are biters. ;-)

And I'm on your blog roll. I have you on mine and on my favorites! Don't want to lose you, girl! :-)



April said...

Yay...I'm on your blog roll! I enjoyed reading the answers to your tag. I've never smoked, either, and never will! YUCK!!!

southerninspiration said...

I am a Lifetime Member too, and love chocolate also! I am going to try to get back on Program, too, at the same time trying to get my thyroid back in gear. That might help! I'd love to be on your blog roll....I visit often!

Hi Diane!
I enjoyed reading your tag and learning more about you.
I'm the same I just could not get the hang of a standard shift. I was always so afraid ahead of time of when I was going to have to put my brakes on...I always knew I was going to have trouble getting into 1st again!
Weight Watchers..mhmmmm...and chocolate? MHMMMMMMM..
hope you are having a great day

I may be playing the tag too...

Beth at Aunties said...

Diane, It was fun learning more about you and yes we do have lots in common...although when you type I never see any errors:)
I adore Chocolate; have always had trouble driving a stick shift, been to WW, bought lots of WW cook books and wishing I looked more like Fergie after she joined:)
I am getting colder as I age also and even took a blanket with me to the movie theater this week.
I have never smoked...
I love dogs and miss our little poodle who tended to bark a lot at strangers...but I also am afraid of certain breeds who are biters. ;-)
Have a great day!

Seems we share a lot in common! I too love chocolate just a tad too much. I drive a Nissan, but a Pathfinder. I kept trying to like cigarettes when I was young to look cool, but it never took. I'm wearing shorts now and it's probably 40 degrees outside. I can't drive a stick-shift to save my life! I joined WW once, but made up excuses not to go to meetings!

How fun...I don't even know about this "follow me thing" or anything..I go off my blog roll and My "history" and My "comments!

I am scared of big dogs too!!!

I would love to be on your blog roll and I love to visit everyday. I am a WW dropout and love chocolate too. I don't like to drive at all. I like my own big dogs but I am leery of all other dogs. I who was born a conservative Republican am slowly becoming a liberal Democrat!!!! I also never smoked in my whole life. Great post!

I have never smoked a cigarette. My friends think that it is funny and call me Sandra DEE....
