Sunday Favorites - Getting to Know Me...Getting to Know all about Me!

Welcome to a Sunday Favorites post. Sunday Favorites is a meme hosted by Chari from Happy to Design. I love Sunday Favorites because as Chari says, "Sunday Favorites offers a solution for getting a post out on the weekend without having to spend a lot of time doing so...weekends are just a busy time for most of us! Copying and pasting a previous post is so quick and easy. Not only is this a quick and easy solution to the busy weekends, but it's also an opportunity to dig back into our blog archives and share a favorite "past" post once again! Many of us spend a lot of time and effort creating a post and it just seems a shame that it is viewed only once and then forgotten about!"

Totally agree with you Chari because I forgot I had ever posted the one I'm going to share today. I answered several questions that were floating around in 2008. Hope you enjoy my blast from the past today and that you learn just a wee bit more about me! Happy Sunday!

A Favorite Post
September 28, 2008

There's this little questionnaire going around right now on several of the blogs I read and it's a series of questions you have to answer about your husband. Well since I don't have one of those, and I didn't want to be left out of anything current going on in the blogosphere I thought I would address the questions to me and answer them. I mean who knows me better than me?

Ok, here we go.

1. Alicia is sitting in front of the tv, what is on the screen?
The truth is that it's off, just a blank screen. I don't have cable and there's nothing to watch on Sundays. I did just finish watching Monk on though.

2. You're out to eat what kind of dressing does Alicia get on her salad?
I like ranch, but it does depend on what kind of salad. If it's like a Chinese chicken salad, then I like the Chinese chicken salad type of dressing. If it's like a taco salad, then usually salsa is the dressing, although sometimes you can get a really good cilantro-lime dressing as well.

3. What's one food Alicia doesn't like?
That would have to be mushrooms. I can't stand the way they smell or the texture. I've even tried stuffed mushrooms and you just can't hide that disgusting taste. The strange thing is that my mom who dislikes pretty much all veggies just loves mushrooms, go figure.

4. You go out to the bar, what does Alicia order?
Usually a Corona Beer with lime in a salted glass, kinda like a poor women's margarita. But it does depend on what I'm eating and/or doing. If I'm having Mexican food, I do enjoy a margarita, but if I need to get my rhythm going before dancing, then definitely a Long Island Ice tea with a shot!

5. Where did Alicia go to high school?
I went to Calipatria High School in Calipatria, California. Go HORNETS!

6. What size shoe does Alicia wear?
A size 6 1/2, really. But I love that line in Steel Magnolia's where Truvy says, "I usually wear a 6, but a 7 feels so good, I'll buy an 8."

7. If Alicia was to collect anything, what would it be?
A few years back I did start collecting bears, all kinds of bears, ceramic, cloth, pictures, dishes, etc. I'm just waiting for spring so I can have a huge yard sale. I really don't have one particular thing I want to collect because pretty much I just want EVERYTHING. In fact I have an "IWANNA" post coming up here in the near future.

8. What is Alicia's favorite type of sandwich?
I really love my fried ham sandwiches with avocado, but my tuna with minced jalapeno is pretty good too.

9. What would Alicia eat every day if she could?
What else? Chips and Salsa, Chips and Salsa!

10. What is Alicia's favorite cereal?
I'm a simple woman of simple tastes, I love Kellogg's Frosted Flakes, they're Grrrrreeeaaaatttttttt!!!!!!!!

11. What would Alicia never wear?
Probably a Halloween costume in the workplace. That one comes to mind because my current coworkers want to dress up this year and I've never dressed up and never wanted too.

12. What is Alicia's favorite sports team?
Dallas Cowboy's Baby!!! Oh Yeah! Even though they did lose today :-(

13. Who will Alicia vote for?
I'm a Republican and I am really for the McCain-Palin ticket! No one is perfect I know, but McCain's war record and love of his country speaks volumes to me.

14. Who is Alicia's best friend?
You've heard the saying, "You can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family". Well the best thing is when your best friend is also beautiful, wonderful, generous, loving, funny, bighearted sister Lisa!

15. What is something you do that you wish you wouldn't do?
I guess it would be speaking without thinking...and that's not really true because I do think about what I'm going to say, it's just that some things are better left unsaid, but by then I've already said them!

16. How many states has Alicia lived in?
Arizona and California only.

17. What is Alicia's heritage?
Mexican American, although I prefer American Mexican.

18. You bake Alicia a cake for her birthday; what kind of cake?
Again, I'm a simple woman with simple tastes. My fav cake is white with white frosting. But I do love me some Carrot cake, mmmmmmm.

19. Did Alicia play sports in high school?
Funny but I was just talking to my cousin Robert about this today. I played Volleyball, Softball and a little Tennis.

20. What could Alicia spend hours doing?
Besides talking? Just kidding. I guess it would either be sleeping or online reading blogs.


  1. That's a nice repost. You certainly can learn some things about someone with those questions.

  2. I enjoyed your post, Alicia. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing about you!
    Hugs, Beth

  3. What a cute post. It was really nice getting to know you. Have a great weekend.


  4. Hi Alicia...

    So happy to see you for Sunday Favorites today, sweet lady! What a fun post to repost...I missed it the first time around (don't think I knew you in 2008). Hmmm...I sure did learn alot about you! These blog games/questionaires are just sooo much's surprising how much you can really learn about someone! Thank you for sharing your great-self with us...I loved it!!! By the way, I have a bunch of jalapenos right now...I never thought about using them in tuna salad! If you have time, share your recipe with me!!! Do you use mayonaise, etc?

    Have a super Sunday, my friend!

    PS...Ahhh, so did you have the yard sale and get rid of all the bears that you collected? Just curious! Hehe!

  5. Hi Alicia! Thank you for leaving such a sweet comment on my blog. To answer your question...I never did find a wheelbarrow like in the picture, boohoo. Someday....
    This is the first time I visit your blog and really enjoyed all of your questions and answers. I hope you don't mind me following along your blog and hoping my blog entices you enough to become a friend. :) I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

  6. Sometimes watching a blank black screen is very restful!


  7. I like this getting to know you post. I like white cake too. :) Very interesting!

  8. "A simple woman of simple tastes" -that's my kind of line.
    As for mushrooms' taste. I can get used to any taste if the item is low calorie and helps maintain normal body weight.
    Very enjoyable post!

  9. love reading about u friend!!! HUGS! Come out and visit and we could go to a Cowboys game :O)
