I GOT MEME’d WHILE I WAS DANCING IN THE RAIN!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with RETIRED

I've been a member of Active Rain since January, just wasn't active until one Saturday in March when I decided to check this site out a little closer and became addicted in a matter of 30 minutes (if it took that long).

My commenting (dancing in the rain) on other member's blogs has been a fun and educational experience.  I've met so many wonderful people but never expected to be MEME'd - thank you Jeff Belonger - here are 5 things that most of you don't know about mememe.

 

  • I was born and raised in Louisiana - yes, I'm a Cajun.  We have traced our ancestors to Canada and to France before that.  I love to invite friends over for dinner and prepare authentic Cajun food - I use our Family Recipes - see my recipe for Crawfish Etouffee in the Recipe Group and in the Suthurn Thangs Group.

 

  • I have lived in 10 states - Louisiana, New Jersey, Delaware, Massachusetts, Georgia, North Carolina, California, Arizona, Virginia and Texas - Massachusetts 3 times, and North Carolina 2 times.  Which was my favorite state?  Hmmm, they all were!    

 

  • I have 3 wonderful, beautiful, intelligent and talented children.  Daniel was born in Hickory, NC the first time we lived there.  He and his fiancé, Catherine, are both majoring in Art at UTSA.  I also have beautiful identical twin daughters, Erin and Rebecca who were born in San Diego, CA.  Erin is a Biology major at the University of Texas at San Antonio but is considering moving to New Jersey and transferring to Rutgers University.  Rebecca has graduated from Texas A & M and is married, she and her husband, Brad, live and work in San Antonio.

                                              Here's a picture of Zydeco!  Isn't he cute?!!

  • I live and work in San Antonio, TX.  My puppy, Zydeco, (Shih Tzu) sits in my lap while I read and comment (dance in the rain).  I have been a Real Estate Agent since October of 2000 and joined Coldwell Banker D'Ann Harper, Realtors in September of this year.  I specialize in Corporate and Military Relocation. I also love to work with First-Time Buyers.  I do have a special man in my life, his name is Don and he is employed at the Toyota Plant here in San Antonio.  We've known each other most of our lives but never dated until we went to a Class Reunion after we were both divorced - another one of those Class Reunion match-ups.

 

Now that you know a little about me, it's time to meet some other new Active Rain Members.  I'm tagging Yolanda Hoversten, Mike Mueller and Angie Vandenberg to write their MEME's.  Y'all just go here to read the rules.

Now for a lagniappe -- I've read and read and re-read Nick's step by step instructions...let's see if I can do this!

Carmen,  Thanks so much for stopping by and the nice comments. 

No, Cajun restaurants in Kissimmee?  It's actually easy to cook your own.  Most ingredients are in the grocery store.  Many carry the Cajun or Creole seasonings too.  Just let me know what you'd like to try and I'll send over a recipe.  ;)

Are you out of the doghouse, yet?  I love your meez--it's apropos. 

OK, I'm serious now--I hope you get back soon.  Meanwhile, enjoy your freedom.  : ) Sweet smile.

Yolanda,

LOL, no, I guess I'm still in the doghouse!  :(   I'm sure I'll be back tomorrow!  hehehe  then I'll make up for lost time!!!

Actually, what happened this afternoon kinda fit in with the rest of my week and considering my past week, my meez is very appropriate!!!  I was thinking about changing it but I think I'll wait another day or 2.  lol

Hi Judi,
It is nice to read the MeMes and learn more about our AR friends.  I do not know anyone from Hickory that I can think of but I'm still working on who you remind me of.  This happens to me with lots of people, then one day the answer will hit me out of the blue.

Cynthia, Thanks for stopping by my MEME.  I had a lot of fun writing it -- I still think of things that I could have included but since we're only required to tell about 5 things, I'll share the rest as I continue my journey through Active Rain. 

Hmmm, I'm sure you'll figure out who I remind you of -- I hope they're nice!!!   :)

Hi Mike, Thanks for stopping by to read my MEME.  Ahhh, so you're a Rod Stewart fan too.  Glad you enjoyed the "lan-yap".  By the way, I lived in Arizona for 7 years and loved it -- still do.  I lived in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.  Haven't been there in much too long and would love to go back for a visit.

Judi:  Nice to meet you!  Your meme is great and Zydeco is very cute.  That's an interesting name, how did you come up with it?  I joined active rain around January too, but I didn't actually start using it until June and talk about becoming addictive!!!  It doesn't take long does it?

Hi Donna, nice to meet you too.  Yes, it's very addictive, I kept thinking about it and would logon look around, read a little and logout.  Finally, I had a free Saturday and decided to look around again -- that did it, I was hooked. 

Zydeco is a cutey -- everyone loves him.  He's very affectionate and is truly a lap dog.  I had a list of names for him before I got him and at the bottom of the list was Zydeco.  My boyfriend and I were talking about names for him and I told him the names on my list and asked if he had a list -- Zydeco was also on his list but I wasn't ready to commit to Zydeco.  Then, the following week, he was talking to the breeder and the breeder was giving Don an update on the puppies.  He mentioned that his kids had named "my puppy" Ziggy because he has a "Z" marking on his back!  Well, Don called me and told me about the name and the "Z" on his back so that settled it, we decided to name him Zydeco.   Zydeco is a type of music (like Jazz, R&B, Rock & Roll, Cajun) from Louisiana.  In fact, it's a combination of all those types of music -- Jazz, R&B, Rock & Roll & Cajun.  Just seemed to be the right fit.  And there aren't any other puppies/dogs named Zydeco!!!  We usually call him Zydie. 

Thanks for stopping by.

My girlfriend thought it was really cute that you named your dog "Zydeco."

Josh, thanks for stopping by.  One of my favorite musicians from Louisiana is Wayne Toups (from Crowley & Lake Charles).  I love his version of Zydeco music.  Hadn't really planned to call my puppy Zydeco.  We each made a list of names for him, and funny thing was, Zydeco was at the bottom of both lists.  Then the breeder told my boyfriend that the puppy we had picked out had a "Z" shaped marking on his back and that the breeders kids had named him Ziggy.  We decided with the "Z" marking on his back and the previous Ziggy name his name had to be "Zydeco".  Actually, the name fits him perfectly!

Hey Judi, it as great getting to know about you.  She loves to cook and Rod Stewart, and that caught me right away, my kind of gal.

I have lived all around too (military) but always knew I'd come back home to NYC.  I hope you have a great weekend and kiss Zydeco on the nose for me. (too cute)

Hey Maureen, too bad you didn't get to go.  We had one the end of Sept. but we had to go to a friend's wedding on the day of the festival so we missed it.  You know my little dog's name is Zydeco.  lol  Next time you come to Texas, I hope we can get together.
