Random Dozen

1. What was the last thing about which you procrastinated?

Stuff I am supposed to be doing for our end of the year Children's Choir programs at church-since I am the Children's Choir Coordinator! lol  
2. How long does it take you to fall asleep, and do you sleep through the night?

It takes me awhile unless I am on the couch and my hubby is rubbing my feet and then it doesn't take too long.  I never sleep through the night-I have had little ones-been pregnant or nursing the last 11 years and so that combination of those things has made me be a mom who never sleeps through the night anymore.
3. Which decade would you choose to exemplify your favorite fashion styles?

I think the old 30's black and white movie style era-those beautiful dress and high heeled shoes-not that I would dress that way daily but I think they look so pretty.

4. What is your personal best dish to feed a crowd?

I love Poppy Seed Chicken-it is easy and everyone usually likes it.  My whole family of 6 will all eat it.

5. Are you an impulse shopper? What was the last thing you bought on impulse?

I would have to say "Yes" to this I guess-depends on the day and my mood but-this is funny I think as I write it -I would have to say Canisters for my counter top to put beans and noodles and things like that.  Pretty exciting I know!

6. What is one wish you have for your own funeral?

Lots of beautiful music and not lots of tears.  Happy memories and lots of laughter-I love to laugh.

7. If it's true that joy is in found in the simple things in life, what does your joy look like today?

The fact that it is a new day-yesterday was a little bit of a bummer and so I am thankful for a new day and second chances.
8. What is your favorite type of bread?

Love bread-but my pumpkin bread I think.

9. What trait do you fear developing the most? (Laziness, greediness, grumpiness, etc.)

Grumpiness-I am over all a happy person but some days I let things get to me and it affects my whole attitude and I don't like it when that happens.

10. What trait would you like most to develop?

Better memory and more of a servant's  heart.
11. Which room in your house best reflects your personality? Why?

I think my front room-bright-sunny and comfortable place to hang out.  I like being in that room-it makes me happy.

12. How do you maintain balance in your life regarding, work, family, church, other organizations and activities, and blogging?

That is a good question-the last few days I have been so overwhelmed with it all I haven't felt like I am being able to balance it all and do it all well.  I am praying for God to show me what I need to do differently and what I need to let go of.  I am praying and trusting that He will open and close the doors that I need to change.

That's two recipes you need to share - poppy seed chicken and pumpkin bread!

Sorry your day yesterday wasn't good, but those photos are priceless. Good enough to show at the funeral -- a day you spent with a friend, family and God's one will remember the stomach ache except perhaps, the siblings.

Thanks for your sweet comments-I will get on here after church tonight and post my recipes. I have another one for chocolate peanut butter pie that another blog follower asked for so I will get on here and do all three.
Hope you have a great day.
You are right about the day too-the pictures were fun and the drive was beautiful-and the time with my friend and my kiddos was great-would have been only better with my hubby too. I love to see the beauty God has created like that-amazes me that people do not believe there is a God when they see that kind of thing.
Happy Day!
I will post those recipes later.

Loved reading your answers. It is so much fun to see what people put down compared to yourself. Enjoy the rest of your week.
