Uptown Acorn: Blog Tag!


I’ve been “tagged” by Lauren of {simply}lkj. She is one of my biggest “fans” and mother to two beautiful girls. Even though I have not met Lauren, I know we’d be fast friends. Rumor has it that she and her hubby are coming to NOLA this Fall. I hope this is true. Without further adieu, here I go:

1.  Are you named after someone?

I am named after my father, Ronald Thomas Carrier, Sr. Believe it or not, my dad was named Ronald after Ronald Reagan, my grandmother’s fave actor.

2. When was the last time you cried?

I cried on Sunday during CBS: Sunday Morning’s, On the Road segment. There was a story about a dad with ALS making memories with his daughters. You must watch this: click HERE! Tissue, please!


3.  Do you have kiddos?

No kiddos! Two nephews and one “niece”.

4.  If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

Of course, I would. If I like you, I like you! Get it!

5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Cheez-It! Original!


6.  Do you like handwriting?

I love my own handwriting, and I love personalize notes. I am still one of the few who hand write and mail thank you notes.


7.  What's your favorite cereal?

Post Great Grains, Banana Nut Crunch

great grains

8.  What's the first thing you notice about people?

Eyes and Smile. One thing that bothers me most is a smile with overly bleached white, white teeth.

9.  What's the color of your eyes?

My eyes are blue, and I am told daily that they are my best feature.


10. Scary movie or happy endings?

Happy endings! I am a Julia Roberts movie type of guy.

11. Favorite TV shows?

Real Housewives of It All. Modern Family. CBS Sunday Morning.


12. Summer or Winter?

I enjoy summer. If you follow this blog, you know I am a beach guy.

13.  Hugs or kisses?

Hugs, but I do like my personal space (so make it quick).

14.  Do you have any special talent?

Hmmmm? I love to decorate and accessorize. I think I do it well.

15.  Where were you born?

I was born in Thibodaux, LA in St. Joseph’s Hospital.


16.  What are your hobbies?

I love to decorate, blog, and work in my yard. I guess you can add laying beachside to that list.

17.  Do you have any pets?

No pets.

18.  Favorite movie?

Steel Magnolias is my all-time fave.

Tag, y’all!


  1. Such great questions... Loved learning a little more about you!

  2. Love the blog today, Ron! I have to agree that your penmanship is one of the prettiest I have ever seen, and I love that you still write handwritten notes on your classy stationary! Your eyes are definitely your best feature, and your decorating and accessorizing is unparallelled--so classy, so Southern. Steel Magnolias is also one of my favorite movies--it gets me every time! I'll have to check out the bloggers that you tagged and see their responses! Have a great day! xoxo

  3. I love this "blog hop" where we get to know more about the face behind the blog and I sure loved getting to know you better.

    I saw that segment Sunday too and I cried too...that was the sweetest thing...his daughter will have some great memories of her dad. I also have to agree that your eyes are a great feature but also I'd say your smile. My son in law loves Steel Magnolias too and that's where they got Jackson's name (one of their twins). I love anything Housewives...but I think OC and Beverly Hills are my two favorites.

    Thank you for sharing this with your "fans" Ron!

  4. It was so much fun learning new tidbits about you! You do have the prettiest blue eyes :o)

  5. Love these types of posts! I do love that you still send out thank you notes!

  6. LOVE it.,Ron! What fun facts. The scary thing is that I know you well enough that I knew most of your answers. You forgot to add "cocktails" in there somewhere though!;>) xo Diana

  7. Love this Ron and I knew I liked you. I too am a Cheez it fan and love Steel Magnolia's too. My all time fav movie. You have gorgeous blue eyes. I feel they are the windows to our souls and yours are gorgeous. This was fun to read and get to know you a little better.

  8. Loved this!

  9. Thanks for participating Ron!! Yes, definitely one of your "biggest" fans. And YES...we are coming to NOLA in September!!!! Cannot wait. I guess all those hints I casually (or not so) through out worked ;-) Loved learning more about you. You have the best penmanship and your love for "real" letters shows. Such a lost art!

  10. Fun! And yes, you have the decorating thing down pat!

  11. Hi, Blue Eyed Ron! Oh, I loved this and I have wifi and I did play along with the tag. Thank you again for thinking of me!
    You are the sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  12. So nice to meet you, Ron, and learn some interesting things about you. I have to agree that you do have beautiful blue eyes; I also love Modern Family, and Cheez-its were always a favorite of mine {until I had to go gluten free}. I am coming over by way of Shelia's blog.

  13. Ron, this was fun! I love learning new things about a friend!

  14. It was so much fun to read more about you! I like some of the same things that you do.

  15. I loved reading your "tag" game!! And I thought I'd left a comment earlier...and when I just checked, I didn't see it! :)

    Your Blog has been on my Blog List for quite some time...and I do visit, but I don't always comment!

    I'll be back....


  16. I love this tagging and finding out more! My favorite cereal is Banana Nut Crunch too!
    Your penmanship is beautiful and definitely a lost art.

  17. Hi Ron, enjoyed reading this tag game and learning more about you. I had to smile at the cheez its as these are my hubby's favorite too but he tries to stay away from them. LOL
    Steel Magnolias is a real favorite of mine also. Love CBS Sunday Morning too.
    You have gorgeous hand writing and I still love to send a hand written note and cards to friends and family. As for the decorating~~this is my life!!!!! and hanging out in my garden and pool.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Have a great Thursday!

  18. Neat post! I'm positive you'd be a fun friend to have with. :)

  19. Great answers Ron. My favorite - Real Housewives of anywhere.

  20. I too enjoyed this post and learning more about you. I love your handwriting and love that you use cursive and that you appreciate the handwritten note/letter. I think you eyes are one of your best features but agree that your warm smile ranks right with your eyes. Thank you for sharing a little more of yourself.

  21. I loved reading your tags....


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
