Just because I love her...

My real-life friend, Mel from Life Is Like A Box of Chocolates tagged me and because she's so great I will certainly comply!!  :)  Here goes y'all...more things you really didn't need to know about me!

Favorite food?  Cream of Crab Soup (hello cause I'm from MD) and General Tso's Chicken and Black Bottom cupcakes...great, now I'm hungry.

Quirks about you?  I say "I'm just sayin" like ALL the time...I crack jokes when I'm nervous, I like to appear confident but really I'm not so much, I get lost in books, LOVE country music and don't care if anyone else does or not, I really hate my eyebrows. 

How would the person who loves you most describe you in ten words or less?  TEN words?  Oh give me a break!  Ok, smile let's see it would be...beautiful, love of my life, awesome wife, super mom, wonderful friend, fab oh yeah like he'd say 'fab' cook, great budget manager, fashionably late ha I'm having fun with this!, optimist, stubborn, talkative, night owl and cranky morning person, addicted to Star-bucks coffee...need I go on???!!!!  :)

Any regrets in life? I wish I would have not been so timid said my peace more in Madang...then again, it is what it is so maybe I don't have any regrets.

Favorite Charity/Cause? COMPASSION International, ACA, NTM

Favorite Blog recently? Confessions of a Pioneer Woman, Cheaper Than Therapy, Apron Strings Aflutter

Something you can’t get enough of? Girl time and taking pictures.

Worst job you’ve ever had? Applebees hostess.

What job would you pay NOT to have? Public Speaker or a Maid.

If you could be a fly on the wall, where? Dao, to see firsthand what awesomeness my SIL and BIL are doing!!

Favorite Bible verse right now?    I Thess 4:13-18 NLT
"And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.  We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died.  For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves.  Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.  So encourage each other with these words."

Guilty Pleasure? Starbucks, Panera Bread, Movies

Got any confessions? I sleep talk/walk/freak out when I have bad dreams and I breathe veeeery heavy at night so my hubby says, but y'all can't use this against me m'kay?!

If you HAD to spend $1,000 on YOURSELF, how would you spend it? Clothes, shoes, jewelry, perfume!!!

Favorite thing about your house? Well, my pretend dream house has a big mother porch in the front and I just love sitting in my rocker and watching the sun go down.  Wasn't that a nice dream?

Least favorite thing about your house? I don't own it yet dang it!!!

One thing you are bad at?  Watching my time.

One thing you’re good at?  Talking?  Ok, planning and cooking meals.

If you could change something about your circumstances, what?  We would be debt free almost there and be at a place where we could afford our own home. 

Who would you like to meet someday?  Karen Kingsbury

What makes you feel sexy? New haircut with a new slammin' outfit and jewelry to match!

Who is your real life hero? I have several...my dad is my #1 hero always has been always will be, my sister because she is stronger and braver than she believes, my Moses because he fought for his life and blessed the socks off everyone who knew him, Abraham because he is the spark of life, and my Chloe because she overcame every obstacle and difficulty with beauty and strength ~ she never complains about her position in life and lives life to the fullest extent!

What is the hardest part of your job? Now that I am a part-time working mom...it's being away from my cherubs.

When are you most relaxed?  At the beach on vacation...ONE MORE WEEK TIL THEN!!!

What stresses you out? Money issues and when family members have issues.

What can you not live without? Besides my family and friends...computer!

Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists? What article???  I didn't read any such article.  I don't have time or energy to have an opinion about that!!!

Why do you blog?  Well, at first it just started to keep in touch with our many friends around the globe.  Then it was great for far away family to see new picts of the kiddos.  Then it was therapy for me to write down my thoughts, etc.  Then it was so wicked fun to meet new friends and now it's basically an obsession that I would never have enough time to wallow in...I love it and love the whole small world feel it brings in a way I never would have imagined.
