5 interesting things about Mimi


I've been tagged by crooked eyebrow for a meme.....Where do I begin?
  1. I started singing at a young age and was in a traveling Christian youth group. I won teen talent in our region at age 17, by singing a solo. I have been singing at weddings and funerals since age 16. The older I get, the less I do. I also play the piano by ear. I use to play piano for a local church and nursing home ministry.
  2. I have been to the Oprah Winfrey show 4 times....I stood and talked 2 times.
  3. I use to work down town Chicago, comuting by train. I come alive in the city....One of my favorite places.
  4. I have a few dream jobs that I would love to pursue. One is rocking Babies in a hospital nursery. One is working for Make a Wish Foundation. The other one is a model...yes, at my age and size...would love it! One of my favorite jobs I have held would have to be an assistant 2nd Grade teacher...It was so rewarding. I have a Medical Records Clerk certificate. I loved taking medical terminology. I would also love to volunteer at Children's Hospital in Chicago.
  5. Some day, I would like to drive a convertible.......I now drive a mini van, which is very handy with 4 grand-children. Well, that's all folks...

I am going to tag Ashlee and Robin for a meme....What are 5 interesting things we don't know about you girls? Spill it!

I'm so glad you played! So, next time we meet up you have to sing for us!


and you could model and I think you should, who else would pose in a bathing suit in the snow?

Just don't 'dare Mimi to do anything' that you don't expect her to do! She's a 'daredevil'! Always will be! :) But I love her!

Maaaaaaaaaaaan, I would trade just about anything to go to the Oprah Show once! She's my free psychiatrist (sp). Really. Her and I have cried together many times.

I think you should trade in that mimi van tomorrow.
