Tagged Again!

I was tagged again for a meme and it's a long one this time! Hopefully you can handle all this info about me! Mel at A Box of Chocolates (sounds like we have something in common, huh?!) tagged me. Stop by and congratulate her on 500 posts! Wow! She's having a giveaway, too.

Okay, here goes:

Favorite person (outside family)?
Too tough a question. I would say Jesus, but I consider Him family!

Favorite food? I think you can say it with me...CHOCOLATE!

Quirks about you? I don't like to sneeze and will make faces trying to avoid it; I don't like making phone calls (I do love my friends & family though!); I get cold easily (70 degrees is chilly!), and I love exclamation points which can be a problem, according to Melanie.

How would the person who loves you most describe you in ten words or less? Good wife/mom, dessert-maker, occasional house-cleaner, back-seat driver, amazing stacking skills

Any regrets in life? There are plenty of regrets, but the Lord has forgiven me so I don't dwell on them.

Favorite Charity/Cause? My son's Christian school.

Favorite Blog recently? I enjoy so many, but I am especially enjoying Like a Warm Cup of Coffee because she is taking me through a 31 day cleaning challenge that I desperately need!

Something you can’t get enough of? Chocolate (I could, but I have to restrain myself) and love!

Worst job you’ve ever had? Late-night hostess at a restaurant where many drunk people came in to eat.

What job would you pay NOT to have? House-cleaner or Janitor (now you see why I need the cleaning challenge mentioned above)

If you could be a fly on the wall, where? My husband's office - I would love to see how he interacts with employees and if they actually like his jokes. :)

Favorite Bible verse right now? Romans 5:1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Guilty Pleasure? Fancy coffee drinks, clothes, and tea things

Got any confessions? The Lord knows!

If you HAD to spend $1,000 on YOURSELF, how would you spend it? Clothes and accessories, Starbucks, home decor, go to tea with my friends, spa day...and I'd throw in some chocolate!

Favorite thing about your house? A gate in the fence leads out into a park and we have really good neighbors.

Least favorite thing about your house? No pantry, no walk-in closet, no third-car garage

One thing you are bad at? Just one???? Here we go again with the house-cleaning.

One thing you’re good at? Making yummy chocolate desserts.

If you could change something about your circumstances, what? I'd be fit and trim and I'd have a self-cleaning house.

Who would you like to meet someday? hands down...Jesus!

What makes you feel sexy? Anything that gets a compliment from my husband.

Who is your real life hero? My husband. He is a godly man, works hard to provide for us, fixes things, laughs, plays games with our son and loves me even with my gazillions of faults.

What is the hardest part of your job? Um...well...have I talked to you about the house-cleaning?

When are you most relaxed? Late at night and most relaxed on Sunday afternoons after church.

What stresses you out? Doing things last minute

What can you not live without? My Bible, my family and friends, and maybe my blog!

Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists? I'm so glad to be able to share my wonderful thoughts with you on this as I know you are anxiously awaiting my opinion...I actually agree a little bit, but the same would go for any author, whether book, magazine, or blog. I think a lot of us are just here to share, learn something, and make connections - nothing wrong with that!

Why do you blog? I started just for a way to write and clear some thoughts out of my head (I was always composing mini articles in my head - I just never realized that they were blog posts!!). I also love all the sharing of knowledge and ideas, the encouragement, and connections and new friends.

Okay - rules:
1. Answer the questions
2. Link back to whoever tagged you
3. Tag eight bloggers to do the same, 2 from each category.

No pressure for any of you to do this - only if you want (I'm just following the rules!):

• New/newer bloggers -- One Sock at a Time and The Glass Jar (both started around the same time as me)

• Bloggy friends -- Like a Warm Cup of Coffee and Scooterblu's Whimsy (they've been tagged before, but they're friends so they can't get mad at me!)

• Bloggers you’d like to get to know better -- The Inspired Room and My Cup 2 Yours (Really enjoy both)

• Bloggers you don’t think will respond, but you hope will -- Musings of a Housewife and Rocks In My Dryer (it could happen...maybe they've been lurking on my blog just hoping that I would tag them...HA!)


  1. Mmmm. Chocolate. This was fun to read.

    Cute blog. I found you from a comment you left at Rocks in My Dryer.

  2. LOL! Yeap, you're right, we're friends so I could never get mad at you for tagging me! LOL! I actually like the meme' long as they don't require a lot of thought! LOL! We learn so much about each other through them! So thanks for passing this one on to me! I loved your responses! I have one to do today, I am way behind, and I will get to this one the next time I post! I don't think I will be joining in on the chocolate post tomorrow...remember, can't be mad at me! LOL! I was looking forward to it, but I'll be tied up at the lake house again! ...the never ending project! LOL! But I can't wait to see what everyone posted! Hope you have a good turn-out of posters!

    If I don't get to talk to you before, hope you have a great weekend! Hugs, Rhonda :)

  3. Thanks for the tag! Wow, that was a long one but really interesting! I read every word, you did a great job with your answers too. I am a chocolate lover myself. :-) My husband does our housecleaning so things work out pretty well there for me, I don't mind some housework but some of it is too tedious and boring. And yucky. :-)

    Happy day,

  4. Thanks for the linky love and for playing along. I'm with you on the housecleaning front and the chocolate of course!

  5. Alright dear blogging friend, I can't be mad at you, but there is no way I am doing this tag anytime soon! I was pooped after trying to come up with 100 things about myself - and it took me two hours! I love ya though, so someday I will do it! :)

  6. Fun to read! Thanks for the tag!
