It's All About "Meme"??!!?!?!?

By
Mortgage and Lending with Hill Valley Financial Services

So all of my growing up years, my mother taught me that it was not ever all about "me".  I even tell my two kidlets that today.  Therefore, when Rita tagged me, I was (and am) unsure what would be interesting to write about myself.  So after some consideration...here goes:

1.  While a senior in high school (Gresham, OR) I was fortunate enough to sing the National Anthem at the great Candlestick Park (San Francisco, CA).  The Giants game was really a fun game and they won that day, too!  Very weird experience, and one that I shall always treasure, too!

2.  I am the oldest of four children and we span 12.5 years.  Emily, David, and Jonathan are the names of my siblings and we all still reside in Oregon!  :)  My Mom is (mostly) thankful for that!!

3.  I have been to Canada, Mexico, The Bahamas, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Panama, and Hong Kong, and China.  Eventually, it is a dream that I could go and travel to all seven of the continent's.  At such point in time that I am tagged for another "Meme", I will tell you all about the top five places I would still love to go to...another day, I guess!

4. Prior to my being involved in this business, I manged political campaigns for candidates.  I have come to know some truly remarkable people through that career path, but I knew that I could not be as mean-spirited as is sometimes required.  So I chose a new pathway!  :)

5.  In spite of the fact that I am a native Oregonian and have lived in Oregon every day of my life, I have been known in certain years to possess a passport to the Happiest Place on Earth.  You should go and check it out.  I credit much of my happiness to having been to Disneyland about 20 times! 

 

Thanks, Rita, for the tag!  It is my understanding that we are now to tag three others.  So, here I go...(insert drumroll here, please.........)

  • Donna Harris
  • Grace Safrin
  • Sara Goodwin

I am looking forward to learning more about the three of you.  Have fun with it!  :-)  I will be watching, reading, and writing!!!!

Hi Sarah...enjoyed reading your meme blog.  It was very interesting to read all the places you've travelled to.  Travelling does expand your view of the world...but there's nothing quite like a "passport" to the Happiest place on the earth...Disneyland. :)

Hi Sarah,

It was nice to read about your experiences. And as someone who also was just recently tagged and posted mine a little while ago, it is great fun!

I have been to Oregon and still have a cousin who lives out there. I have been out there about 5 times in both the fall and winter months...have yet to make it in the spring or summer. But, no matter the time of year, I still think it's beautiful. It is certainly A LOT different than Florida!

I have been to Disneyland, but don't remember it...too young. Have since been to Disneyworld, so I know what you mean by the Happiest Place on Earth!

you are quite the traveler and that is super cool that you sang the national anthem! I bet that was scary. I couldn't do that...but I also can't sing at all!

Sarah,

Isn't Disneyland awesome!  It opened the year I was born (I didn't make it that year though).  Been there many times but more to Disney World.  Both are priceless!  I even did a Disney theme take-off post with It's A Small World!

I just added your meme to my alphabetical meme list.  Check it out when you get a chance.

Take care,

Lucky :)

Lola ~  Yes, my favorite passport is to Disneyland.  Love it and I love to be there.  I get to remain as Peter Pan...a kid forever!  :)

Cris ~ Anytime you want to come out in the spring or summer, let us know.  We will have dinner!  :)  I love Oregon dearly!  :0

Sherri ~ Your son will love it...hopefully for a long time.  I did it for about 10 years.

Rick ~ Singing is a gift.  I enjoy doing it.  It was a bit scary, but I would certainly do it again in a heartbeat!

Lucky ~ I will have to go find the Small World blog.  Thanks, Lucky.  :)

Yvonne ~ Thanks for your comments!  I will do my best with those kidlets and you are right!  I feel very blessed to have the life that I do.  I hope that you are as blessed as I am!

KittyKat ~ Seems as though your personal issues with me have led to an unjustified attack on my character.  I still, however, wish you the best.

Hi Sarah- Thanks so much for sharing some insight about who you are, and where you came from. I can tell looking at your photo that you are a positive upbeat person, and now I know your secret! AH HA! Disneyland!!! I need to take a trip with the kids, really soon! Oh, and we will have that cup of coffee, soon!  :-)

Sarah-This was fun to read.  That was a WOW moment.  The opportunities you have had are wonderful.  I think it's fabulous that you have taken your dreams and given them wings to fly.  Often times we all think about what we want to do and never get there.  A Disneyland Passport?  That's even better.  When I worked for jetBlue the opportunity was readily available to jump a plane and go to Disneyland.  My family loves it there. Wouldn't that be wonderful to run into each other out there?

Hi Julie ~  Thanks for reading this.  It is really fun to think of unique things like that.  Yes, let me know when you are going to Disneyland!  Amazingly enough, every time I go to Disneyland, I have run into at least one person that I know.  You just may be next.  Then we would always have Disneyland!  :)
