Thursday 13- the letter V

In my quest to finish my ABC Thursday 13s.....the letter V.

1. Van Morrison- had to go to my Ipod to see what V popped up...."Brown Eyed Girl" appropriate!

2. view- from my perspective

3. vacuum cleaner- Love love love mine...I have the purple Dyson. I like to think I am an extremely clean neat person. But every time I dump that thing, I am so grossed out!

4. vague-If I don't want to deal with confrontation, I give a vague answer....can you say passive aggressive?

5. Valdez, Alaska-one of the many gorgeous places we have been to in Alaska.

6. valet-If we go out to eat at a restaurant and they have valet parking, I am so using it. Most likely I wore some pointy toed witch boots and my feet will hurt before we leave! I will look cute, but my feet will hurt!

7. valentine-I like to take creative desserts to the kids' school parties. I made pink heart shaped rice krispie treats for Valentines day last year.

8. vanilla-I have a huge bottle of Mexican vanilla that I have lugged from Oklahoma to California to Kansas to Texas and finally to Kentucky! The packers won't pack it and I love it enough to pack in the few kitchen essentials that go in the cars with us! It is almost empty...I wonder if I know anyone going to Mexico soon.

9. Vitamin-I take a vitamin every day. I am a good girl like that!

10. vegetables-I eat vegetables every day...see #9. Also, the kids do too.

11. Vidalia-I had a penpal when I lived in Alaska. She was from GA. She sent me Vidalia onions because I couldn't find them when we lived there! (this was in 1998)

12. verbose-I was a very verbose child. Livi is too.....guess she learned by example.

13. vocal- I was kicked out of vocal music in junior high. She said I talked too much (No, what she said was "I cannot offer Tommie the structured environment she needs in order to succeed.")...WTH?? I used to have the class change paper that said that. I think that meant I talked too much.....see #12.

Neat one! When our son was in preschool, the teachers and parents made corn-shaped rice krispie treats for the annual Thanksgiving Feast.

I love those pointy toed witch boots :-)

Linda said...

Interesting post. What will you do when you finish the alphabet?

My TT is in honor of Veterans Day.

Lori said...

Great the boots! Happy TT:)

On a limb with Claudia said...

Well, I have a deep resentment for your vocal music instructor. I can't believe someone would say such a thing about you! :P

I do love your alphabets - will you start over again?

And those are very sexy stiletto boots! You should do a shoe post.

Happy TT

This was a good one. And that Mexican Vanilla sounds totally worth it!

Paula said...

Love your Thursday Thirteen...will need to come back and read the rest of the alphabet

This is great! What happens when you get to X?

I loved reading this post! So much to learn about another person. Again with those great shoes too!

Which reminds me, I actually bought the cutest pair of black shiny leather shoes a couple of weeks ago. They are Franco Sarto and I paid a whopping 3.98 for them! I'd say that's a deal. Maybe I'll do a shoe post so everyone can see how fabulous they are.

This was a Very witty Thursday 13. I love the View of all your fall shoes. And I love MY Dyson Vaccuum too- but you are right about dumping it. I swear I dump whole heads worth of hair, I'm always like, our house doesn't LOOK like we are shedding (and we being me and the girls!) YUCK.

OK, that was cool. I dare you to do the letter Z next time. ;-)

hahaha--I got in trouble for talking, too. I have a few report cards where my "citizenship" grade was so low it kept me off the honor roll!

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Girl, I love your taste in shoes! Sorry I haven't been around, life has been overwhelming. :O

Moi said...

i used to be a "talkative" kid too....they'd keep changing my seating partner and position in the class in hope of finding that one person or place where I'd stop talking.........i think i have grown quieter over years...but once with people i love, there's no stopping me :)
