Getting to know you

Today I got to know a little more about my sweet friend Miss Go Lightly at A Chock-Full of Rants and Raves From a Thirty-Something Mama. She posted this "getting to know you" game and I thought it was fun and a great idea! So now it's my turn:

Three names I go by:

1. Ivette (my mom named me after actress Yvette Mimeux but spelled it with an "I".

Awe, this is fantastic dahling! Thank you for reposting. I'm thrilled that I now know more about you :) I love that you were named after Yvette Mimeux. I'm so jealous that you live in NYC! ;) I see that we both share love for wine and are addicted to our caffeine soft drinks lol. Ah, TCM... If I could watch TCM all day I'd be in heaven! oooh, you'll have to post something about the paranormal. I'm intrigued! Fantastic pics the places you'd like to visit, and oooh you have a birthday coming up too?! what date? How exciting! Thanks again for sharing such interesting facts about yourself doll =D

Miss Go Lightly, you live in sunny California, I'm jealous! I've been trying to convince hubby to move to some place with less people and warmer weather :)
My birthday is May 23. Don't like the fact that I'm getting older every year but I am greatful that I'm healthy!

Miss Go Lightly said...

LOL, yeah true, but still I would have given anything to fully experience life in New York, I'd live in one of those cute little apartments like Holly did ;) Your birthday is 3 days after Goobie's :) Sweet! The feeling is mutual, with getting older, but also grateful for being healthy!
