Random Q & A!

A fun (long!) Q&A post that I got from Jody's Nitty.Gritty. blog:

1. What is your current obsession?
Digital scrapbooking - so much fun! Easy, less mess, and I can tote my laptop around anywhere in the house (car, library, etc.) to work on it!

2. What are you wearing today?
My favorite jeans and a button-down black shirt. Plus my favorite necklace from Brad. :)

3. What’s for dinner?

Homemade macaroni and cheese from
here, (the second of several new recipes I am trying this week!), plus steamed broccoli, bread, and fruit.

4. What’s the last thing you bought?

Shopping at Target this morning - a black ink cartridge for our printer, and a cute $5 Valentine's t-shirt for Riley.

5. What are you listening to right now?
Riley and Quinn chattering about: building a fort, their school day, and setting up a store!

6. If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Somewhere warm and tropical - an island in the Caribbean (though if you had asked me a few years ago, I would have said a remote cabin in the mountains with lots of "woodsy" decorations!)

7. What is one thing you want to change about yourself?
I'd like to be less bossy. :)

8. If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Right now, I'd love to be pampered with a full-body massage, manicure, and pedicure - but I can't get all of that in an hour!

9. Which language do you want to learn?
I know some Spanish and quite a bit of French, but I'd love to know French better!

10. What’s your favorite quote?
"I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to my death your right to say it."
I STRONGLY believe in freedom of speech and allowing others to have their own opinions (even if I don't agree with them!).

11. Would you cook for me?
Yes! I love to cook and try new recipes - come over anytime!

12. What is the right way to avoid people who purposefully hurt you?
I believe the best way is to take it to God in prayer. After that, I think you should confront the issue if necessary, or just let it go if it's truly not a big deal.

13. What are you afraid of the most?
Losing any of my loved ones. Making wrong decisions.

14. Who do you want to meet right now?
I really can't think of anyone I'm itching to meet! I enjoy personal relationships with those around me more than "celebrities" or famous people.

15. What is your favorite color?
Sunny yellow. And this is my dream car. :)

16. Give us 3 styling tips that work for you.
I'm not really into style. :) Have a great hairstylist, buy clothes that flatter you, and always have an easy "go to" outfit.

17. What is your dream job?
A small business owner. Working for myself. Helping others with personal finance and budgeting. Working out of my home. Lots of computer work - spreadsheets especially. :) Hmm - sounds like a business plan already!

18. What’s your favorite magazine?
Just one??!? I LOVE magazines. These are my favorite: World, The Old Schoolhouse, Simple & Delicious, and People. Eclectic, I know!

19. If you had $100 now, what would you spend it on?
Digital scrapbooking supplies, and printing some of my scrapbook pages. Send cash!! :)

20. What do you consider a fashion faux pas?
Hmmm . . . sandals with socks.

21. Who, according to you, is the most over-rated writer?
I don't think I have one to mention!

22. What brings a smile on your face instantly?
Tickling my kiddos. My husband's jokes (most of them!).

23. What is one word that you say a lot?

24. What kind of haircut do you prefer?
For me? Medium or long length, and straight.

25. What are you going to do after this?
Eat dinner with my family.

26. What do you do when you are feeling low or terribly depressed?
Eat (not good, I know!). Cry. Take a nap!

27. What makes you go wild?
Cranking up my iPod and dancing with the kids.

28. What are your favorite movies?
Son-In-Law, A Few Good Men, P. S. I Love You, Shawshank Redemption

29. What inspires you?
Thinking outside the box. Creativity. Bright colors.

30. What do your friends call you most commonly?

31. Would you prefer coffee or tea?
Neither. I don't like either one. Maybe hot cider or hot chocolate on a really, really cold day.

Lots. See my sidebar for a few faves. Although I do need to update it with some more!

Hands down, strawberry pie! No contest!

Enjoy life and raise great, Godly kids. Maintain a strong marriage. Help other kids. Lead others to Christ. Other than that, see #17 & #37! :)
