A Little Q&A

In an attempt to put off life's more important (Bible study tomorrow), making a grocery list (again, Bible study here tomorrow), getting my son out of the bathtub (he just finished playing in the mud), and laundry (leaving town Thursday), I thought I'd do a Q&A that I found on Erin's blog.

Favorite Person in the World?
Okay, can a mother choose? It's a 3-way Man, my Boy, and my Girl.

And then of course their is my mother...and sister...goodness, I have a lot of FAVES!

Favorite food? Mexican food and sushi. I really could eat both daily.

Quirks about you? Uhhh...where do I begin? My bed has to be made. I dislike dishes in the sink (you wouldn't know this by looking at it right now, but really, I do hate it). I like to be busy, I don't really know how to sit still. I randomly enjoy dancing to no music.

Any regrets in life? The correct answer would be some profound statement on I am who I am because of the mistakes I made. But seriously, yes. They are the small things. There were things I said and things I did that hurt my mom growing up, I'd take those back. I regret not spending more time with some people in my life.

Favorite Blog recently? Good question. I always love me some Big Mama! She makes me laugh daily and I love her Caroline stories!

Worst job you’ve ever had? Hmm. I am so embarrassed to admit this. Hooters. BUT, it was only for 3 weeks. Literally, I worked there for 3 weeks and then just couldn't force myself to go another day. It was my poor college days and I needed a job, preferably one that didn't involve an office or a desk. So, it was Hooters. Jimmy told me he was embarrassed by me working there and if I didn't quit he'd break up with me. It was a pretty rough time in our relationship as well, so I quit. And burned my outfit, not really but should have.

What job would you pay NOT to have? Just about anything on Dirty Jobs. Anything involving poop.

Favorite Bible verse right now? Great question. There are several on my heart right now...
"The Lord will fight for you. You need only to be still." Exodus 14:14

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua1:9

Got any confessions? I pick at my cuticles. Oh, and I have a hard time spending less that $50 at target.

If you HAD to spend $1,000 on YOURSELF, how would you spend it? Funny you should ask. I have my "Vegas Fund" for our trip this week and I have been looking forward to shopping. I don't gamble. I'd much rather have something to show for my money. So probably, clothes...a new BIG purse, and some ridiculous new sunglasses. Or jewelry.

Favorite thing about your house? It's newer than our old house. Not brand new, just circa 2003, not 1978. So, no bugs inside which I love! I also love the paint, floors, kitchen. Everything. I really do love this house. We also have awesome neighbors!

One thing you are bad at? Saving money. Or more, not shopping for the kids, especially MacKenzie.

One thing you’re good at? Shopping...can I say shopping? LOL. I am good at seeing things from other's perspective. Many times I am the one my friends come to for advice for this reason. Oh, and I think I am a good party planner. I love to throw parties. I am already planning my daughter's first birthday and it is 4-1/2 months away.

If you could change something about your circumstances, what? The things we are going through with my brother. We'd be on the other side praising Him. Just like yesterday's sermon, we'd be like Moses and the Israelites - standing on the other side of the Red Sea singing our praise song to our Heavenly Father after watching our very own Egyptian army being defeated. I know we will get there. I know He is fighting for us.

Who would you like to meet someday? I have no idea. I know this is a question that is asked often in surveys but I don't know. I'd love to meet my MeMaw that I never met.

Who is your real life hero? Goodness, right now? Moses and his faithfulness. Real mom, for all she's going through. Angie Smith for all she's going through. Ann Marie for what she's gone through with her sweet Coy.

When are you most relaxed? At my Nana's house or at the river.

What stresses you out? My house being a mess. Packing to go out of town.

Why do you blog? To distress. To talk about my family. To connect with others. To write.

Now copy and repost. Surely there is something you too can put off...
