5 things about me

My friend Genny over at MyCup2Yours is doing some great things on Thursdays on her blog.

She is covering a wide variety of topics but today's topic is 5 things about your self.

So here are a few things you might not know about me.

1. My name is Beverly.(shh don't tell) I have never liked being called Bev. Unless it's by family or close friends. I once had a teacher who insisted on calling me Bev. When he called the roll I wouldn't answer. He sent me to the Principal's office where she told him my name on the roll sheet was Beverly and that is what I should be called. SCORE for me and I loved her for it.

2. Hubs is gonna faint when reads this next one. I was born in New York. Queens to be exact. I only lived there for the first 5 yrs of my life and when people as me where I am from I always say Texas or Houston. Because as far as I am concerned this is where I grew up and still live today! I love living in Texas!!

3. I like the game of Hockey. I'm not a violent person but I like it when they fight or push one another into the glass. I know there is more to the game than that but that's what I like the most when I watch.

4. I think I have the best in-laws and sister in law in the world. I love them to pieces. I really miss my in-laws living right behind us. My sister in law is one of my best friends. They have always treated me as if I was born right into the family. They are so good to me. I thank God for them often.

5. I like coffee but I have to be in the mood for it. I am more of and orange juice kinda girl. I guess I got that from my grandmother, she used to say the same thing. And to be honest I still miss her terribly and it's been 7 years. BBBIIIGGG SSSIIIGGGHHH!!!

Well there you go. Now you know a few random things about me.

Now it's your turn. Once you play along please go back to Genny's blog, link back and leave her a sweet comment. I know she would love to hear from you.

I love hockey, too. Played field hockey in school. Center Halfback. My husband just laughs because he has this image of "tough" girls who play hockey.

I have wonderful inlaws, too. It's a blessing, isn't it?

Nice to meet you, btw!

My inlaws are great too and I feel so lucky about that!

I'm so glad you joined in today,

Hi Beverly,

I stopped by from Genny's place. It's nice to meet you. I promise I won't call you Bev.

You know, I've never been to a hockey game but have always wanted to go. Our city does have a pro team. Maybe I'll check out the schedule and see when me and the hubby can go.

Be well,
