Summertime Fun: Little Random Facts

Hey there everyone and Happy 4th of July Eve!  I was catching up on some post reading and came across this lovely little questionnaire and thought it would be fun to join in!  Lana of The Blended Blog has created this #summertimefun series that is just like the name states…FUN!  So read below to find out more about me and be sure to join others over at her link up to find out some fun facts about them.  You might just want to join in, too!  🙂


1:  Favorite Animal:  You can probably guess from my blog name…It’s an elephant!  Why? You can read about it in my first ever blog post Where Do I Begin.
2:  Wine or Beer?  Well, hello!!  Everyone knows how much I love wine.  I love it so much that I’m even willing to offer you a free bottle from the wine club I’m a member of.  You’ll get a discount just for signing up, along with the free bottle credit and just have to pay shipping!  Who can beat that offer?  So what are you waiting for!    Promise you won’t regret it!  🙂
3:  I can not sleep in socks!  I just recently had a conversation about this with some friends.  My feet determine my body temperature and socks make me too hot.  Not even in the winter.  I’ve tried…I just wake up and pull them off!
4:  Uhh, I am not a beach bunny so a one piece is a definite for this body!  Lol…
5:  I must admit, I enjoy cooking.  If I had the budget, I would probably eat out every night.  There are so many restaurants to explore in Charleston and the vast amounts of cuisines are endless!
6:  Pepsi or Coke?  Sorry guys, I am not a soda drinker so neither.
7:  Regular or electric toothbrush:  I just tend to stick with a regular.
8:  Candy or chocolate:  I am definitely a chocolate lover!
9:  Coffee or tea:  Why not both!  It just depends on the need for the day.
10:  Music or talk radio:  Music.  I just haven’t really tried talk radio, but I know how much I hate commercials.  Music keeps things lively!
11:  I actually like all 3 types of movies.  I would say I am more of the action or romantic comedy type, but I enjoy all types of movies
12:  Regular/Mechanical pencils:  I love me some good ole #2 pencils!  🙂
13:  Swimming or laying out:  I love swimming or wading in the water.  I will lay out with lots of sunscreen, a visor, and some shades.  
14:  Dog or cat:  I absolutely love dogs!  My favorite are Corgis!
15:  What do you drive:  I drive a sedan.  My old faithful Honda.
16:  When I was younger, I was such the early bird.  Now, I would consider myself a night owl.
17:  If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, I guess I would choose something Mexican.  Tacos I guess.  They come in many varieties! But can I have a margarona to wash it down?  :)o
18:  I always sleep with the phone near me.  I also use it as my alarm.
19:  Singing in the shower:  No, I tend to do more thinking and planning out things in the shower.
20:  Oreo cookies?  I tend to either dunk them whole in milk and take them apart and eat the center cream and then eat the cookie parts.  

Now it’s your turn!  Tell me some fun facts about you!

    1. Oh, don’t speak those words. I told my doctor awhile back (one hot summer) that I was pre-menopausal and she told me I wasn’t. I told her I was hot all the time and sweat like crazy. She kept saying I wasn’t. I went in my my annual in January and she asked how I was doing and if I was hot all the time. I said no. She smiled and said, ” Told yah!” We both laughed after I realized what she was talking about.


  1. I agree on the socks! I literally get twitchy if I’m wearing them in bed! Can’t handle it!
    thanks for linking up with us!


  2. I’m a swimmer too! I like to lay out but when it gets hot I like to cool off in the water! Charleston has so many good restaurants how can you not go out?!

    Liked by 1 person

  3. How fun! I can be a morning person or a night person, but honestly, I’d still rather sleep in. LOL I’m actually cold most of the time so I tend to sleep in socks, but I get the really soft ones that are supposed to soothe your feet. Those are nice.



  4. Shhhhhh we have lots in common! wine, oreo dunker, no soda, cooking at home, music, drawing pencils for sure, shower thinker, coffee for sure…ice tea in the summer tho. Monarch butterflies are my thing, I’m a swimmer-too much sun damage as a teen (baby oil and all-so sad) It’s nice to meet you. Visiting from Tamar’s.


    1. I like drawing pencils, but have gotten into markers more for the vibrant colors. I purchased some paint pens this year and enjoyed that as well. My son took an art class this last semester of college. I gave him a few canvases and the paint pens when he seemed stressed and he created a masterpiece! I only like ice tea when it is Firefly sweet tea vodka…tee hee hee!


  5. I can nap with socks on, but I need them off if I’m sleeping all night.
    I don’t very much soda. Only ginger ale when I have an upset stomach.
    I also an a sedan driver too 🙂 I prefer driving a car.


  6. If I lived in Charleston I would want to eat out every night as well! Socks while I sleep… now that is a tricky question. In the winter yes, but right now when it is 1 billion degrees? Nope!


  7. Found your blog on the Mommy Monday Blog Hop.

    I love chocolate over candy and cakes over pies. I’d rather be in a onepiece with a cover up at meet a huge umbrella at the beach.

    No music or radio for me, I rather listen to audio books
