Meet Me on Monday!!

Welcome to the 22nd edition of 
"Meet Me On Monday!"

Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?"  I know them...but yet I don't know them!  I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday I will post five get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

"Its a great way to to meet new friends and for others to get to know me Monday at a time!!!" quoted by the Chacogirl!! I will make this SIMPLE and FUN!!!

I will add a linky so we can follow who participates and get to know them better!!  Be sure to link the POST and not just your whole blog!


1.  Do you eat Sushi?
2.  What kind of bath soap do you use?
3.  How often do you talk to your Mom?
4.  What TV shows do you watch on a regular basis?
5.  Did you start Christmas shopping yet?

My Answers!

1.  Do you eat Sushi?
      Blah!  No!  I do not like sushi!  Neither does Joe or any of the boys.  I don't even like to watch someone eat it!

2.  What kind of bath soap do you use?

      I use Caress bar soap. My skin get so dry in the winter and it seems to help.  The only other soap I can use is Ivory because I get weird reactions in my lady parts from other soaps...I know..TMI!

3.  How often do you talk to your Mom? 

     I used to talk to my Mom everyday, but now that I am working so much I usually talk to her once a week....she lives next door so I don't have to go too far to find her!

 4.  What TV Shows do you watch on a regular basis?

      As you know I am a Reality Show right now I am watching:

      Amazing Race, Survivor, Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kendra, Biggest Loser, Millionaire Matchmaker, Teen Mom and Desperate Housewives!

5.  Did you start Christmas shopping yet?

     I have!  So far I have bought my Dad a pair of lounge pants, a present for Short's teacher and 4 gifts for Short!  Anything I can check off on my list is a relief for me!  I do most of my shopping online so as soon as the boys give me....I mean Santa...their list, I will be shopping away!  Joe and I also go out on Black Friday and usually get most of it done then!

Time to link up and meet!!

This is a blog hop so if you want to put the linky on your post just click the "Get the Code" at the bottom of the linky.

Your link MUST include your Meet Me On Monday post or it will be deleted!

Also PLEASE either put the Meet Me On Monday button in your post or link your post back to me.  I have found several people just posting the questions and answers in their post and no one knows that they actually belong to a meme and linky!


  1. I love sushi, Grey's anatomy, talk to my mother often, As for soap anything that is moisturizing and leaves the body soft!

  2. Since we're sharing intimate details... :-)

    I, too, have trouble with most soaps and my intimate lady parts. Have you tried the Summer's Eve shower soap specially made for those areas? Use that "there" and your favorite soap elsewhere. Let's me use my scented soap so the hubby will tell me how good I smell without irritation.

  3. I love love sushi! I am finding all soaps now make me itch.. need to find some different brands (that is on my list since my arms are scratched up from my scratching), I talk to my mom either through text, or phone every day.I love the new Parenthood tv series, so real I love it and Christmas shopping.. are you kidding??? Get me through Thanksgiving and then we will talk. Speaking of Thanksgiving, come visit me this week for some great freebies I have found.

  4. I love reality tv though I didn't list any in my answer. I am crazy about the Amazing Race though we DVR'd it tonight so we could watch the Steelers (hubby's team) and the Patriots (my team) play. Rough night in the house. :)

    I don't do sushi either and I may have a TMI there too. :)

    Have a beautiful week!

  6. This is such a great idea and such a fun way to get to know others better! I am your newest follower.... You are so lucky to live next door to your mom!

  7. Hi java, I'm a new follower and have posted the blogger over 40 badge on my blogsite. Unfortunately because the hop code is a javascript I can't put that badge on my site (darn you!)

    I hope I can still participate in the hop? I've checked out a couple of other great blogs as well as yours.

    Have a great week!

    Oh, LOVE Sushi' I use BodyShop bodywash in the shower, and choose whatever 'flavour' has been given to me; I talk to Mom everyday even though she passed 25 years ago; I like House, Bones, Battle of the Blades, and SYTYCD, along with hockey!; no Christmas shopping yet, but have been making gifts for presents

  8. I think the only sushi I might ever try would be candy sushi! Thanks for hosting once again.

  9. Good for you that you started Xmas shopping. I think that question will motivate me into starting mine. Thank you for hosting this meme, I really enjoy getting to know other bloggers.

  10. Thanks for hosting. Enjoyed reading your answers.
    I love tv too! Have a wonderful week.

  11. Hi Java,
    I have added your button, tried to do a linky earlier but couldn't get that going properly (not too good on computers!), loving your blog x

  12. Ooo no sushi for me. I can't stand the idea of raw fish or any meats. Blah! I use Ivory regularly. Summer's Eve is good to use on delicate feminine body parts, if you have problems. I don't talk often enough with my mother. I'd say maybe once or twice a month. I like Dancing with the Stars and The Apprentice. I shop Christmas year-round (please don't hate me), as this is the sane way do it for myself, I've found. I have only one present yet to buy, though, and then I'm done. Yay!

  13. I tried Caress, and it made my legs itch. I'm with you on the Sushi thing--yuck! And I have a good start on my Christmas shopping.

  14. Great answers!
    I wonder how my daughter would answer #3.
    I haven't tried Caress but I might since my skin is extremely dry.
    You're so brave or maybe crazy to shop on black Friday.
    Mama Bear

  15. Thanks for hosting Java!

  24. I love this! I didn't join in on Monday, but I've got a draft started with the button already and waiting for the questions.
    I love sushi as does my 13 yo. We don't do too much of the crazy things though! My mom lives with us, so I talk to her every day, even the 6 years we lived in FL and she was in PA I talked to her more than my sister who lived down the street!


I love, love, love comments!! Thank you for taking the time and for making my day!! I read every single one and if you ask a question please be sure that I will get back to you as soon as I can!
