Ive been tagged but not by the Pug!

As you can see this pug is not tagging anyone!

My little Chancho (thats little piggy boy in Spanish) is quite happy just laying in the window protecting my china (or at least taking a little snooze)
Its his favorite place to be if he is not in my lap.

He is going to be my poster boy for a new movement im calling "Pug Chic! "
Who needs shabby chic when a pug can make your room look like this adoreable!
Now im sure your thinking......... 'This dog needs to be on a diet!!!!!!
Believe me we do try, but its so hard to resist a face like his....
besides its not entirely his or our fault he has very bad allergies so he has to be on steroids alot and that makes him gain weight.
But now that the weather is getting better up here were going for walks to see if we can help him (and me) shed a few pounds :P

So now your thinking (or maybe not) whats all this talk about pugs not tagging???

what is Lu Lu talking about??..........Well.......................

From Debbie at Purpleflowerfairy,

and its kinda a" your it" game done on computers that requires that I now have to reveal tidbits of trivia about myself.

so for better or for worse here goes.........
1. Name 2 scrapbook topics I would like to do........Well I don't scrapbook so I have to say NONE!

2. Name the 2 best places you have ever been to...... Brazil and Argentina Iguassu Falls they are the second largest waterfalls in the world, set in a tropical jungle setting they were gorgeous! Also Hawaii, I went when I was a teenager and still have the memories implanted on my mind.

3. Name 2 things you do everyday..........Get my Dunkin donuts coffee, and always always put on mascara and lipstick, since I have blond lashes without it my eyes disappear and I always put on lipstick, my husabnd used to say where are you going I say no where just need my lipstick, he doesnt ask anymore he knows the routine. :)

4. Name 2 things pretty much everyone knows about you.......... I love Pink! I love antique shops.

5. Name 2 places I wish to visit........Paris....told my husband he has to take me there because I need to get real french perfume (ive almost got him convinced thats the only place I can get it)
and anywhere in Europe, preferably Italy or Spain.
6. 2 things you may not know about me.......
I I'm TERRIFIED of Spiders!!!!!!!!!..... even the smallest one sends me in a panic. I travel with a shoe in the car in case one shows up while I'm driving I can kill it quickly without having a car accident.
The other thing you may not know about me is I married a younger man.... Now before you start thinking...oooohhh go girl! its not that scandolous he is not too much younger only 3 years. but I had you going for a minute...:P

7. Name 2 nicknames you have had at some point in your life..... this most of you know......
Lu La Belle and Lu Lu were nicknames from my father. and Sissy from the rest of the family.
but not sissy as in you sissy girl( though I suppose that would have fit me I was always very sensitive.) but Sissy as in sister, I think its a southern term of endearment since my family is from the south.

8. Name 2 interesting jobs I have had in life (good or bad)........Well the worst job and I mean the WORST job I have ever had was working at Sears selling televisions and vcr's!!!!!!!!!!!
The money was pretty good because we were on commission, but I loathed having to read and learn all those technical manuals, Why in the world would I want to know the hundreds of functions of a remote control, or how to connect a tv to a vcr!!!!!! thats one of the fringe benefits of having a man around :P.....
It was pure agony for me and often let sales go to another sales person because I had no idea how to explain the product to the customer because I couldn't bring myself to read the manual...So needless to say that job didnt last too long.
Another interesting Job I had when I was young was cleaning houses....
Its unbelievable the way people live in such filth!

Coming from a home where I had a mother who was clean obsessed (you can eat off my mothers floors) the whole experience was an awakening to me to how others lived and never knew exisited.
9. What 2 fun things I do after work........ Well usually after a day at the shop im usually too tired to do anything but if on a rare occassion I do do something it would be to go shopping or meet my family or friends for dinner.

10. Name 2 things that you would like to learn......I have always wanted to paint, really paint..
I do little stuff here and there but Ive always wanted to learn more serious stuff like landscapes or roses like Catherine Risi my favorite!!!!
The other thing I would like to learn is a second language. Spanish, my husband is bilingual so I would love to talk to him in Spanish.

11. What are the last 2 things I have downloaded or cd bought.......... Phantom of the Opera and my little guy love to listen to it.
and Shania Twain Cd I love her...

13. What are 2 TV shows or movies from Childhood that I still enjoy watching after all these years....... Beverly Hillbillies and Get Smart I love comedies.

Well thats it I think ive covered it all. so now I have to tag 3 more women and here they are..

Cathy from Treasuredheirlooms
Heather from Pretty Petals
Christine from Extra Sprinkles
Ok Girls.......... Tag!.......... your it!!!!!!!!!

Hi. I'm not sure how the whole flickr thing works...but I clicked on your flickr and thankfully you have your blog posted. It is so nice to meet you and your sweet pug. Your blog is beautiful. Please come and visit me, I'm having a little giveaway. Laurie

Heather ~Pretty Petals said...

Hello Sandy, Thank you SO much for tagging me! That was so sweet of you, although I do have to tell you I am terrible about following up on them. :))

LOVED learning a little bit about you! xoxo Heather

Sophee-a Laroo Bijoux and Sheri too said...

How funny that you just commented on my blog....I was browsing your website LOL. Looking for some lamps but they sold :(
I browsed your blog too but went to your site to shop first.
Your pug is hilarious. It is so funny how dogs get a spot and claim it as their own. Well cats do too, but mine leaves his hair behind so that is not so cute!

Rose Petals & Blooms said...

Hi Sandy! It's an OMG moment for me! Cathy (Treasured Heirlooms) is visiting, and she brought me to your blog to see all of your pretties! We were drooling over them late last evening! lol.. And then I see your sweet face on my blog~
What's this? Not into ironing? Well, truth be told, I only love ironing small vintage linens, not tableclothes..ick! They take so much time, and as you turn them, the area you just ironed is wrinkled again!
I had a smile on my face as I read about your little Chancho. Lil piggy boy looks just like me as I lounge around. Very familiar look! lol...
Thanks for stopping by, it was such a pleasure to see you. Come back often please, also, I would love to add you to my "Fav's Blog" if you don't mind.
Ta for now~
