'What Does it Mean', Meme

My dear friend Shalee (who I have even MERL’d at the KC Bloggers Lunch) sent me this little word meaning meme. I’ve seen it around at different people’s ‘homes’ and now here it is…so without further adieu.

It's a word meaning meme where I am to write what the words mean to me.

Buttercup: At first I thought Reese’s Peanut BUTTERCUP it’s my husband’s favorite candy…but it also reminds me of the flower and using them to ‘paint’ with as children.

Bookstore: One of my favorite places to be either by myself or with other book lovers. I think of Barnes & Noble and Border’s and Books-A-Million…all of them! I love, love, love, love BOOKS. I love big comfy reading chairs. I love getting ‘lost’ reading. It also reminds me of the movie: “You’ve Got Mail.”

Pasta: I think of the summer I was 15 and I learned to make Manicotti. Since I'm on a roll providing two answers each (I'm SUCH an overachiever!) I also think of one of my favorite restaurants; Johnny Carino’s.

Inspiration: I first thought of that old Chicago song. Then I thought of how I want my life to be an inspiration to others to never, never, never quit. I want to inspire people to be the best at whatever it is God has made them to be.

It doesn’t state how I pick my words when I tag others, so I’m assuming its total random-ness…I’ll tag: JoyM, Kari, Serenity (if she’s up to it), KP (if she’s out there…), and of course Tam. I don’t want to leave Miche out but figure perhaps Tam’ll get her! My sister is getting off easy (for now) since she’s still adjusting to life-changes at home.

Your words are:


Have fun with it and let me know when you’re done!

What fun answers! I love manicotti AND Johnny Carino's! I think Italian food is my favorite.

Yikes. That reminds me - two people tagged me with this one and I haven't done them yet!

Thanks for the tag!!! Mine is up and ready for your review!

By the way... Johnny Corrino's? THE BEST. Have you had the Italian nachos... oh my!

"You've Got Mail" - another fave!

Chicago - right on the money, and Reese's Peanut Butter cups, hello? That's one of the main food groups right?

Hey, if you are ever in my next of the woods stop in and say hello... I'll have the PB cups ready with the movie set to play and we'll top the evening off by having dinner at Corrinos! My treat even!

Have a blessed weekend, KP! - Kari

Hey Friend,

YES I am out there. :) I'm going to save this MEME for tomorrow since I actually posted today. Several of your answers matched what came to my mind too! Guess great minds think alike. :)

Okay, sorry I missed the tag in all my rush to get ready for the weekend. Do you want me to do these or wait for the new words? I'm up to either.
