Kickin’ in old school – 10 Things About Me

Today’s KIOS prompt is to tell others 10 things about ourselves.

Here are 10 random things about me:

1.  I have moved approximately 20 times in my life.  I don’t think I’m finished yet either.  🙂

2.  My first kiss was with a guy named Chipper.  I don’t remember if it was a nickname or his actual name.  He was very handsome.

3.  I’ve seen It’s A Wonderful Life well over 30 times in my life…I try to watch it at least once every Christmas season.  I can still cry at the very end.

4.  I absolutely LOVE Pinterest (you can find me under Ceanne Bateman) and I have almost 200 boards AND  over 12,000 pins.  You “could” say I’m addicted.  🙂

5.  My favorite food of all time is pizza – usually Hawaiian, but I’m not overly picky if there’s pizza involved.

6.  I’ve never been married, but have lived common-law with three men.  I have now been single for a very long time–on purpose–one day, perhaps I’ll meet someone very special.

7.  I taught myself to crochet when I was about 27 and never looked back.  I also love to knit–my grandmother and mother taught me when I was a child but I still keep learning new techniques.

8.  My children all have paws.  🙂  I have a dog (see side bar) and two cats.  They make any place I’ve lived in a home.

9.  I love peace and hate conflict, but I have I am so drawn to activism for discrimination…It’s something I struggle with, wanting to help but don’t want to get drawn in to the conflicts…still trying to find a way around that.

10.  My favorite color is turquoise.

What are 10 random things about you??

  1. Enjoyed your list. Nice to meet you!

  2. It was great learning more about you. Thanks so much for your comments.
    yes we do share a lot.
    I crochet but don’t knit well; I love Pinterest as well – will visit yours; I see its a Wonderful Life every year s well – not sure how many times. Another fav. is “One Magic Christmas”
    I was born in Winnipeg and have been back many times – still have lots of family there.

  3. Hi Ceanne! Oooooooooh It’s A Wonderful Life!!! Love that movie. They are playing it here at the island theater on Winter Solstice day this year — the same day my hub turns 60 years old, and we are soooo going to see it. 🙂 Will think of you! Oh, I loooove Pinterest, too… will go over there and find you now < 3

  4. I avoid conflict at all costs, too. I can’t imagine being drawn to something that causes discomfort like that – I hope you can find a way around that.

  5. hey! my favorite color is turquoise too!

  6. Oh goodness! My first kiss (I was very young) was with a boy named chipper. I don’t remember how old I was but I do have a single picture of us together, dressed up for Halloween. I learned a couple years ago that he passed away. I always wondered what happened to him.

    Your puppy is so adorable I just want to scoop it up for a snuggle! 🙂

Thanks for leaving a reply!
