A Little Tag and Some Changes

Shhhhh.....don't tell my husband I changed his banner for my blog! I loved his, but it's like rearranging the furniture in your home....I needed a little change! So, I asked the very talented Jan of Big Brown Dog Graphics to put something together for me. Isn't it great? Thanks Jan!

And while on "blog posting hiatus" for the give away, I was tagged by the also very talented Donna of Donna's Art (if you haven't visited her blog, you'll enjoy her paintings and the posts about Otis and Riley!)
For the tag, I was to list 4 things about each of the categories, and then tag four others:

4 jobs I've had
Lifeguard (summer high school job)
Singer in a touring Christian band (2 yrs. right out of college)
Elementary School Teacher
Faux Painter

4 movies I watch over and over
Wives and Daughters
Middlemarch
Sense and Sensiblity
Jane Eyre
(is there a pattern here?)

4 places I've lived
Humble, TX
Monroe, WA
Mesa, AZ
Boise, ID

4 tv shows I watch
Antiques Road Show
Chuck
Masterpiece Theater
American Idol (shhhh)

4 places I've been
Every state except for Hawaii and Alaska
Canada
Cozumel
San Juan Puerta Rico

4 people who email me regularly
Lana
My Sister
My MIL
My Mom

4 favorite things to eat
Roast with all the fixins’
Baked Ziti
Berry Pie
Cheesecake

4 places I'd rather be
locked in a room with all my painting supplies
a book store
an antique store
taking a class on a craft I haven’t tried yet

4 things I look forward to this year
more time to paint
a studio of my own??? (Ok, that’s not gonna happen, but I can dream!)
finishing another year of home school
working in the garden

I will come up with 4 people to tag, when I'm not too tired to plot and plan!!

Oh, and one more little change, (ok, big change for me!). I had my hair stylist chop 5 inches off my head! Well, she didn't "chop", she styled it, lol. It feels so light...but now that my neck is exposed, I see a lot of turtlenecks in my future this winter!

Here is a Before (my younger son took this photo, sorry the closet door is slightly open!) and After.

Hi Suzanne,
Thank you for doing the tag, and I enjoyed reading your list and getting to know you better. I like your new banner too. Also like your hair! Mine is about the same length (long) and I have an appt. Tues. for a haircut and I've decided to go shorter like yours. Hope it looks as nice!
Hugs,
Donna

Oh! I had a dream last night that I was contemplating a bob. Yours is darling! That banner is beautiful too.

Suzanne ~ the new do is you! And for those of you that haven't seen the other side ~ she (Suzanne) is beautiful!

Jan did a wonderful job with your new banner, too! I noticed it soon as the page loaded. That silhouette with the little girl and bird is one of my favorites that you have painted. I've yet to acquire one of your floorcloths (I see one in the background of your banner)... I'll have to keep an eye out for when you paint more.

Love the new "do"! Great banner too! I watch Sense & Sensibility over and over too. It's my favorite JA movie. I've only seen Middlemarch once - I'll have to rent it again.
