Blogging Questions Tag

My sweet blogging friend, Janette, over at tagged me a few days ago in a blogging question and answer blog posting and until this really rainy, I mean really rainy Saturday morning I haven't had time to do it, but this morning we are not going anywhere and I have decided this was much more fun than the 10 loads of laundry facing me to do! lol
So here goes.

  1. If you could travel anywhere with no thought to cost, where would you choose to go?  I would love to go to Australia, or Africa-my degree is in travel and so I would love to travel to either of those places.
  2. What song would you choose for someone to sing at your funeral?  There is something about that Name.  I just love that hymn.
  3. If you could spend a day with anyone (dead or alive) who would you choose?  My two babies in Heaven-I would love to know them-to see them and to tell them I love and miss them.  That there isn't a day that goes by that I don't wonder what they would look like, act like, how their laughs would sound, just little things like that.
  4. What do you want people to remember you by?  That as imperfect as I am as a Christian, Mom, Wife, friend, sister, daughter, that I love and cherish each and every day I have to be all of those people wrapped up into one and I was so blessed and that I tried to be the best at these things-even though I fell short often that there was nothing else I would have rather been.
  5. Are you an early morning person or night owl?  I am a late night person because my kids are early morning people-non of them have ever slept in-so night time is the only time I get to do anything that I need to get done or want to do or like doing without being interrupted and so I often stay up too late doing stuff at night-only to be very tired the next morning do to my morning kids. lol
  6. What is your favorite meal to prepare?  I love  to cook-I make just about anything and I kind of collect cook books.  I LOVE MAKING DESSERTS THE BEST though-that is not good when I need to be on a diet-lol.  I love making breads, pies, cookies, fudge-you name it-if it is sweet I like to not only make it but eat it.
  7. What would a perfect day be like to you?  No arguing from my children-being on vacation somewhere with my whole family-no where to have to be with no time schedule-and like Janette (this vacation would be probably at a beach so it wouldn't be perfect without being a size 5 in a cute bathing suit!)
1.When did you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?   I accepted Jesus as my Savior at the age of 15.  I had always been raised in church but until the age of 15 when we left the church we had been at all my life and started going to a different church had I ever heard the salvation message and accepted Christ.
2. What is the first thing you're going to say to Jesus when you see Him face-to-face? I was going to say probably cry although there isn't supposed to crying in Heaven I can't imagine standing in His presence and not crying-knowing all He has done for me and all I didn't do and failed at and yet He still died for me and loves me.
3. What qualities do you look for most in a friend?  Honesty and being loyal, kind-open and willing to share-I too am "kind of an open book type of person".  People probably know more about me than they want to-lol.  I don't tend to keep secrets about myself.
4. What type of clothing do you enjoy wearing on a regular basis? - I like to get dressed up but since I am home now I look forward to Sundays to do that-I feel better about myself when I look nicer-that is why I don't go out without my hair and makeup done-that and vanity I guess.  I just think I at least look presentable that way.
5. Do you have any hobbies? love to sew, read, cook, and entertain, sing, scrapbook, create crafty things, blog.  Wish I loved to exercise. hehe
6. How many brothers and sisters do you have and are you close? I am the youngest of two, I have one sister that is 3 years older than me.
7. Describe yourself in seven words or less.  
loyal, caring, kind, giving, care deeply, emotional,
OK-you are really going to want to know more about me than you ever wanted to know!  I just saw these questions after answering the first set-lol!!  So may a little dingy would be another word to describe me.  Here goes.
  1. If you could go on two vacations, without any concerns, one  with your family and one with your husband where would you go?  My family would be Disney-we went there 4 years ago when the kids were little and I was pregnant for Analeigh-we want to go back and take her, our whole family now.  She would love it.  My vacation with my hubby-a romantic beach somewhere-we have never been anywhere on vacation alone since we had our kids-unless you count going to the hospital to have the next baby-lol that is the only time we have been alone and together without kids in 12 years.  Some day I hope.
  2. If you could write a book, what author would you want to be like and why? Karen Kingsbury or Fracine Rivers-they are Christian Fiction Novel writers-I just enjoy their style of writing and how they can make their characters seem so real and they base a lot of their stories on real events or Bible characters and I enjoy that.
  3. If you could dream up the most romantic evening with your spouse, what would it be? A yummy dinner and a walk on the beach-maybe even sleeping out on the beach in a hammock,
  4. If you could hear your parents say anything about you, what would you want to hear? That I was a good daughter and a joy to call their daughter and that I was a great mom and wife.
  5. If you were to have your dream job/career/extra-occupation, other than the blessings of what you are doing today, what would it be? A Christian singer.
  6. If you could be a missionary in any country, where would you go to serve? Africa-my hubby was one there for two years and I would love to go experience what he talks about and see where he was and what it was like.
  7. If you could go back for a day, year or month in your past, what would it be and why? My wedding day so that I would soak more of it in to remember or maybe the births of my babies so that I wouldn't forget a moment.
Have fun...What a fun post Janette-thanks for asking me-sorry it took so long for me to answer!!

WOW!!! girl you did them all that is awesome...and it does tell so much about you!! Our son spent a month on missionary work in Africa...the only thing that scared me was he was going into the area of Africa with the most AIDS and he had to take the maximum malaria drugs they allow...he was 17! It was a true walk of faith for this mother...but I would also love to go.

Thanks for playing the game!

Oh I took my dishwasher apart today because it wasn't draining...see you have a partner in your repairs.
