MEME'ed by Renee Burrows

So I just got MEME'd again here on Active Rain by Renee Burrows, a fabulous Active Rainer in the LAS VEGAS area.  If I remember this correctly, I am supposed to give you 5 things about me, and ask 3 others to the meme circle right?  Here goes:

  1. myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphicsWell the recent buzz around the Rain community are Graphic Signatures with your name.  If I have been on your blog, chances are I have left my little "Tink" Katrina.  The recent blog post I made was because someone said my tink was comment spam and deleted it, before I had a chance to do so myself.  So, #1 would be I am a BIG tinkerbell fan, even before tink became so popular and was considered a 'villan'.
  2. I am a very happy go lucky person.  It takes a lot to set me off.  I believe what 'goes around, comes around' aka Karma.   One of my major beliefs are "there is plenty to go around".  I always feel that there is 'enough', and am not threatened by anyone, and will share everything I can with my 'friends'.
  3. I have 4 kids, Tyler (technically my step-son) changed his diapers too before he was even 1 years old, so he's mine.  Madalynne my daughter is 7, Nicholas my son is 4, and Adaleesa "the baby" is 1.  My husband Chris and I have been together since 1994 and married for 10 years on May 2, 2008.  He is one of the sweetest people I know and I have ruined him I tell you!   RUINED!  LOL :o)
  4. I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida, never lived anywhere else and learned to ice skate when I was about 19 years old, and LOVED IT.  I took lessons for a few years and can still jump and spin around even after being off the ice for a few years.  I also learned to ski as an adult, being a REAL Floridian, I never even saw snow until I was in my mid 20's, and still prefer the bunny slopes as hubby dives down the black diamonds head first!  I am also a BIG BUCS FAN!  We go to all of the home games and LOVE football!!! This is one of my husband and my favorite things to do together.
  5. Tennessee is my 'home away from home' I love the mountains and the air there, and would like to build a second home there one day soon.  Never seen Niagra Falls, and wish to do so, soon (Canadian side).  Never been to Vegas, going in October of this year. Husband was a military / airline brad and has been everywhere!
  6. I know quite a bit for my age.  My great-grandma taught me how to crochett & sew, mom - knitt, grandma latch hook, self taught to cook and bake.  I make home-made pumpkin pies & bread every year and have been doing so for about 20 years now, grew up kinda quick and went through the school of hard knocks.  Started originating mortgage about 15 years ago and added real estate to our list of services around 1994.

OOOPS I think that was 6, sorry about that.  Anything you wanna know, just ask!  I have nothing to hide and I am a no holds barred kinda person.  So ask away for anything I missed!  My previous meme is here.

Now I will MEME Wayne and Lynda Gormillion, Chris Griffith, and Marc Blasi

Tell me more about you.  Katrina Madewell, Tampa Florida Home Consultant.

Hi Katrina:

I'm new and I don't really understand the "meme" thing, but you gave me some explanation. Thanks for the info! And you must be a HIGH energy person to take care of all those lovely children, a husband and do real estate. God bless you!

Katrina... That was one quick meme... You just got tagged a few hours ago!  Number 1 is not really recent just resurfaces every few months,  think it's always been consider comment spam to brand yourself so heavily... Very nice signature though,  I've been thinking of developing a little version of me running across the screen but I'm still a little graphically challenged...  

Have fun in Vegas!!  PS... Bring a camera just in case Renee's in a table dancing mood... LOL

Katrina, I love your tink signature, and my daughter (also Katrina with red hair) came in while I was reading one of your comments somewhere and thought I had made that just for her.  She was thrilled :)  

Thanks for sharing!

Katrina - you have an amazing life! 4 kids, hubby AND job! I got tired reading...I need a nap!  Just kidding! I love to read Meme's and get to know the people behind the blog.

I like that you like Tennessee. I'm from the Smoky's (Maryville, TN) originally and am transplanted in Texas, but the mountains will always be my home.

The little Tink is definitely cute!

Lania - Glad I could clarify, just check out the GROUP at the top Meme's, and you'll make more sense of it all, it's just to get to know your fellow rainers a little better is all.

Bruce - the city that never sleeps right?

Dan - I'm sure you are right, it's not all that new, just the first time ever deleted my comment b/c I used Tink and I've been doing that for a few months now.  The quickness was simply a 'timing' thing.

Lexa - AWE!! this made my day!  Not only ANOTHER red headed Katrina, but the fact that your daughter was SO happy mommy made it for her... SHHHH I'm not telling.. our secret, YOUR screensaver!

Linda - I know right where Maryville is, THAT IS BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY THERE!!!  I wanted to buy property there but prices had already hit the Gatlinburg prices, so we bought 10 acres in Dunlap instead (just outside of Chattanooga).

Ginger - Thanks, its a fine line and I'm still seeking out that balance....so hard to find, I really do LOVE to sew, just not a lot of time.

Leah - OK I am SO BUSTED! I LOVE TO DANCE PERIOD!!! This was a biggie not sure how I missed it, but since Leah knows me personally, she KNOWS that I LOVE to line dance, one step, two step, swing, waltz, and the whole other side she never knew about... Salsa, Merenge, Cha-Cha!!   I can do it all baby!  Take me dancing ANYTIME!  ...well after my leg heals!! SOON... very soon I'll be ready for the bull!  Let's roll.

I recently had someone tell me my image was spam too. That was the first time I ever heard of anyone having a problem with it. Granted, my signature is my logo, but it doesn't have a phone number or web site, or even a link in it. And I just happen to really like it. Plus it makes it easy to find my comment when I check back later, to see if the host has responded to me. These comment sections are boring with just text!

Personally, the only way I can see an image offending someone would be if it was my immediate competition in my area. But I wouldn't be that disrespectful. Whatever. I'm now trying to figure out who cares and who doesn't. But I don't want to go around asking everyone.

It's a given that you can always use it on Jeff Belonger's posts! And I asked a couple of my subscriptions and they said they didn't have a problem with it. IMHO, some people need to lighten up. I won't mention any names; In spite of the fact that instead of addressing this issue privately, someone publicly embarrassed me. I still refuse to stoop to that level. I just won't use it on their posts anymore. 

BTW, my nickname from my dad, is Tinkerbell =) I'm almost 40 years old and he still calls me that. And I've been seeing your Tink all over the place lately. I thought it was cute.

Irina - I know it sounds weird, but we do have rinks here, and I went one time for fun and I just LOVED IT!  I only ice skated outside in park in Ohio once, it was the coolest thing!  It's not like we have frozen pond here.. LOL

Lisa- thanks for your lengthy comment post, I appreciate them and your little "mark' here!  IMHO If someone embarassed me publicly, I just wouldn't revisit their blog post, and if I did, I just wouldn't comment, period!  There is a line there between being rude and having an opinion!   I also agree that PLAIN TEXT is boring!  It's no different than having all text and no photos or 'fun stuff' in the post!  I guess I am not easily offended and dont' feel threatened, so that is more than likely where the difference is!  After reviewing one if my latest blog post, that I wrote and reading all of the comments, I CHOSE to downsize tink a little but still use her.  The 1st one was just that size by default so I edited it.  Just food for thought!

Mana - It's funny how you can FEEL like you really KNOW people through these blogs and meme's even though you have never even met!  Truely amazing if you ask me!    I agree I AM a sleep deprived insomniac!

Kimberly - Thanks for commenting on my tink.  its cool isn't it!?   I share anything, I have nothing to hide.

Where the heck it Renee's comment?  She must be actually working, instead of playing in the rain.... LOL

Suzanne - OMG I would be crushed if my pics were gone! trust me you really don't want a 'hockey player' teaching you anything about skating other than a "hockey stop" (required to go from Gamma to Delta level) LOL.  Grab a friend and check out a local rink, they all offer lessons, you will have a blast!!!!

Donna -Thanks,  other than the fact that I didn't give birth to him, and he doesn't live with us regularly (wish he did- just visited for the whole summer) HE IS MINE!  I changed more diapers than dad! :o)
