Happy Birthday.....to ME!


Hello friends! I am so happy you stopped by today. It's a special day since it's my birthday! I thought it would be fun to have a little giveaway to celebrate. 
This is what the winner will receive!


Now...here's how it works!
Below, you will find a list of questions about me. Some of them are questions you might have the answer to and some you will have to guess. Whoever has the most questions correct will be the winner. Question number 11 will be used as a tie breaker if need be. I wanted to do something a little different and fun. Well...fun to me anyway! I love trivia of any kind. 
wish I could give everyone a gift but sadly I can't. Let's get started shall we! You can copy and paste the questions into your comment or just number your answers 1-11. Now, as a teacher, I will ask you to please refrain from "cheating" by looking at everyone's answers...lol! Can I trust you? I do however, want you to check the responses for number 11 and make sure you guess a different amount. Remember this is my tie-breaker question.

Let's play.....


1. What was my maiden name?

2. What is my hubby's name?

3. What is my favorite color?

4. Name something I collect.

5. What grade do I teach?

6. Who is my blog (Willie Mae) named after?

7. How many children do I have and what are their names?

8. What is my dog's name?

9. Name something I enjoy doing?

10. What year was I born?

11. How much did I weigh when I was born?


Now, don't worry if you don't know the answers to most of these questions. I don't expect you to. I just thought it would be fun to see who knows me the best! 
I hope you had fun celebrating my birthday with me. As most of you know, today is my last day of work before summer break begins. I had some comp time to use so I only have to attend the district luncheon and then some work friends and I are going to watch a movie and eat dinner to celebrate the beginning of summer (and my birthday)! I look forward to reading your answers. I will reveal the winner's name on June 13th, which happens to be my son's birthday! So, you have until then to play Vicky Trivia! Have a blessed and beautiful day my friends. And, as always, thanks for stopping by!

  4. Hello Vicky! Happy, happy birthday to you, dear friend:). I hope your day has been as bright and special as you!

    Now...some fun, interesting questions to answer here...I sadly don't know many of the answers, but let's us see how far I get!

    #1 - don't know this one, I'm afraid...
    #2 - Joey
    #3 - All colors, mainly coral, shades of red...turquoise...and spring green?
    #4 - candlesticks...? I browsed a bit here to see if I could find an answer, but have come up blank, so I am just guessing here!
    #5 - Kindergarten...? I actually thought I knew, but now I am not so sure! Haha!
    #6 - Willie Mae was the name of your granny...and the road that you live on:)
    #7 - 2; Miranda and Dakota

    Hugs to you, dearest Vicky! Enjoy your evening and your summer!

  5. First and foremost . . . HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
    I hope that you day is one filled with wonderful moments from sunrise to bedtime:)
    On with the test:
    1. Maiden Name: well, if Marleen and Donald didn't name you Vicky "Sweetie Pie" . . . then something is wrong:)
    2. Hubby: Your sweetheart for 27 years, Joey.
    3. Color: This was hard . . . because I think that you are like me, and what ever colors make you happy are the colors you love. Turquoise, Orange, Yellow, Lime Green, but most of all White, because that's what ties these fun colors altogether and makes them pop:)
    4. Collecting: Well, we all know milk glass, but also other stoneware and china as long as it's white. Now, throw in some books and rubber stamps and Vicky is a happy girl.
    5. Teacher: Kindergarten . . . the most fun of all grades:)
    6. Willie Mae: I have no idea . . . the name of your street, or maybe your grandma:)
    7. Children: A daughter Miranda and a son Dakota.
    8. Dog: sweet, Sadie :)
    9. What do you like to do? Decorating your house and turning it into a lovely and welcoming home. Traveling, which I hope you have a chance to do and visit your daughter. Creating Art . . . Journaling. Attending live Performance Art.
    10. Birth Year: I'm thinking 27 years of marriage and college . . . 48 years young, but then maybe you were a married student, because you seem younger than that.
    11. Oh, like I was there, LOL . . . 6lbs. 10 oz.
    Well, there it is . . . we'll see how I did. I don't know about many of these questions, but number one has got to me correct :)
    Again . . . Happy Birthday!
    Now go celebrate.
    Connie :)
