A Bit More About Me

Finally finishing up the blog posts about getting to know the author (can I call myself that? I guess so) behind this blog. Simply La'Shawn. Two weeks ago I gave you a tiny glimpse into my past up to 20 years old. Basically a lot of who I am today is thanks to the amazing people that I have in my life. True story!

That being said. I bet if you would ask anyone who has known me for a bit today to name one thing about La'Shawn. They would tell you that I love panda bears! I really do. I am not sure where this love came from. I just know that I have for as long as I can remember. I love that Christmas does not go by without getting at least one thing to do with pandas. I love that people post adorable things on my FB about pandas. I cried the first time I saw them in the Atlanta Zoo. I also cried the 2nd and 3rd time. I really did!

Which brings me to another thing. I am a crier. It is actually kind of embarrassing. There is never a week that goes by that I haven't cried over something. Usually it is at least an every other day kind of thing. I cry when I am mad, sad, happy, tired, sick, and so on. Give me a good book, tv show, movie, or heck a good commercial. Here comes the tears. My son watches me during certain things to see if I am going to cry. It is embarrassing when I am crying over things like America's Got Talent. Outside that, I don't so much mind that I am a crier.

I am also a bit on the nerdy side. I love all things Harry Potter. I have read the books more times than I can count. I watch the movies all the time. I am also a proud 33 year old women who wears my HP shirts out and about. I also love Doctor Who. Not to the same extent as HP though.

I love the color yellow. It makes me happy to see it or to wear it. I love that my 9 year old son still picks me yellow weed flowers. If he sees them, they are mine! By the end of spring I have these picked-with-love flowers all over the place. He knows his momma loves the color yellow!

Those are just a few things that scream La'Shawn. I thought it would be fun to do a little questionnaire to round up the getting to know me post. I read THIS post over at Carrots & Cake and thought It would be fun to do. Here ya go:

  1. I’m happiest when I am spending time with family

  2. ”¦ especially if it involves going on hikes

  3. I’ve always wanted to visit England!

  4. My family and I are major homebodys!

  5. I was a terrible girlfriend. I don't know how Jerr stuck it out. 

  6. My first job was a cashier at Goody's

  8. I stole ink pens from sign ins. I am bad bad bad about that! I swear it isn't intentional. 

  9. I was born on the same day as Dr. Phil and Gloria Estefan 

  10. My all-time favorite film is The Holiday. I want that house in the English countryside surrounded by snow! 

  11. I do a pretty mean British Accent. (catch a theme here?) I watch way too much British tv. To the point I don't notice the accents at all. People who have legit accents would probably laugh at mine. Jerr likes it though. :-P

  12. I’m still mad I never finished college. Probably my all time #1 regret in life. 

  13. I met my husband at our mutual job of Office Depot 

  14. I always knew I would be a mom. I did think I would have lots of kids though...I have just the one.

  16. I make digital scrapbooking layouts

  17. I have almost no dancing skills. Serioulsy. It is comical. 

  18. I always cry when...the wind blows? ha ha. I cry all the time. At least every other day. The guys poke fun at me about it. Happy, sad, mad, sick, tired, annoyed, PMS...doesn't matter. Cry! 

  19. I’m a UGA college football fan. My hubby taught me the ins-and-outs when we were dating. I was hooked. I plan my Saturday's in the fall around it. 

  20. I spent 8 months pregnant. Yup. They had to take the kiddo a month early. I had preclamsia. 

  21. I wish the weekend had 3 days and my work day started at 10am. I hate mornings! 

  22. At 5, I was gosh, I don't know. I don't remember much from that young. 

  23. I believe if everyone practiced seeing the good in things, it would be come habit, and the world would be a happier place. 

  24. I can’t stand when people snore. #1 pet peeve....and guess husband can bring down the rafters with his snoring!! 

  25. Whenever Bones is on, I’ll watch it.
