Getting to know you, Getting to know aaaalll about you....



Ahoy! My name is Kimberly DeAllen. I'm new to blogging so joining up to share a little about me. 


THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...
·       Movies: One of my all time favorite is the “King and I” …love, love, love!
·       Books, Books and more Books! Tall ones, skinny ones, old ones and new ones, and of course, The Good Book! I love to read. I love to be transported to a different time and place and experience an adventure through text.
·       Red roses: Well actually only the kind that are followed by “Will you accept this rose? (since my favorite flower is actually a daisy). I am hooked on “The Bachelor” for better or worse that is my reality TV.
·       Caffeine: grande skinny mocha or diet coke or even ice tea.
·       Friends and time away. There is no better combo.
·       Curly haired girls: Specifically these two…
They are amazing, talented, smart, funny, generous and mine.

IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
An owner of a quaint, little coffee/tea house around the corner filled with books where people just come and hang out.
THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Creative, thinker, loyal
FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"
I just love answering the question from a parent “What are you going to do for my child? He/she is so bright I’m sure they will be bored all year!”
Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?
Priscilla Shirer. I adore her studies and I would just like to glean a little from her life.

Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
Speed, to zip around and do everything I need to do. And if I have super power does that mean I get a sidekick cause I would LOVE an extra me!

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?
“but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary
    they will walk and not be faint .”  Isaiah 40:31
…cause Lord knows I need His strength to soar!
.Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?
I’m a night owl forced into a morning person.
Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU!
The anchor on my blog holds special meaning. My parents were divorced when I was little and starting at around age 8 I would go to my “dad’s house” for 6 weeks in the summer. My dad lived on a Peterson 44, a sailboat. We traveled all around the Channel Islands and then later Hawaiian Islands. These experiences of adventure are a large part of what makes me ME!


I hope you had fun getting to know me. I'm loving getting to know so many of you. Here is the link back to Falling into First

  1. I LOVE books as well...I didn't get to read a whole lot this summer, but purchased amazon's kindle program where you can read unlimited books for $10 a month, so I am stoked about that! I love your idea for a coffee/tea house! I like both of those and we don't have too many independent coffee houses in my area. I'm now following you! Welcome to bloggy world!
