Twenty Questions

1. What is your favorite thing to snack on while you're blogging?

Kashi Sunshine and dry roasted peanuts! (my daughter's invention!)

2. What is one thing you wouldn't want to live without?

Air conditioning!

3. Beach, Mountains or Farm? Where would you live if you had a choice?

Beach 1/2 the year/mountains the other 1/2 :) I think Donna Gibson has this one all figured out!

4. What's your least favorite chore/household duty?

matching socks!

5. Who do people say you remind them of?

different random people

6. Prefer parties and socializing or staying at home with the fam?

Depends my mood, but probably staying home to curl up and read a good book or watch a great movie or even work on a blog post!

7. What's your all time favorite movie?

The Sound of Music or Anne of Green Gables/Avonlea -- I can't decide between these two classics. They just don't make movies like these anymore~

8. Do you sleep in your make up or remove it like a good girl every night?

True confessions: I NEVER remove my make up at night, which makes me a bad girl! But I do remove my contacts every night and disinfect! Does that count??? :)

9. Do you have a hidden talent or a deep desire to learn something that you've never had a chance to learn? What is it?

I would like to learn web design; it seems fascinating to me.

his thoughtful, caring spirit.

Having a terrible sense of direction! This irritates my hubby, who is a walking road map!

14. When you have extra money (HA!) what's the first thing you think to do with it?

Buy books!

15. Are you a silent laugher or a loud laugher? What makes you laugh the hardest?

Loud laugher. I laugh the hardest at the funny things my children do and say, especially Matt and Bethany! We always wonder what people without children do for entertainment!

16. Where is your favorite place to shop?

Kohls/Kirklands/The Fresh Market -- depending on whether you are talking clothes, home decor, or food!

17. What's one thing you'd do more often if you had more time?

Read a book/Take a nap! (I wish I could say Exercise . . . )

18. Are you a big spender or frugal?

Somewhere in between?

19. Who is your favorite character of all time (from a movie or book)? (Can't be real)

Anne Shirley

20. Would you want to be famous?

NO! Slightly Rich? Yes!! :)

Yeah! So fun! I LOVE Sound of Music. I just read Anne of Green Gables recently, so I should make an effort to watch the movie.

Ellen said...

I also love Sound of Music....books are my guilty pleasure..I say guily because I have been known to hide so I can get a couple chapters in...Nice to Meet you through the blog party. :)

Mindy May said...

Books make me smile!! I wish I could sit around all day and read. I loved getting to know you better today!

Jenilee said...

I almost said Anne Shirley :) but decided on something else. enjoyed visiting your blog!

Queen Diva said...

I'm so glad for this party - I'm now following you! I would love to see the ins and outs of your homeschooling with all your kiddos. We're only in our 2nd year, and I've only got 2 in school at the time. You inspire me!

whittybrooke said...

Just stopping by from the blog party! Enjoyed your answers. :-)
I love books and reading too. And I wish exercise would've been my answer to that one as well, but... it wasn't. Nice to 'meet' you!


Karen said...

We seem to have a lot in common. I have 10 living children ages 23 down to 4. 7 boys and 3 girls. I was married in 1984.

I also listed the Sound of Music. I am very directionally challenged as well! Drives hubby nuts!

Great to meet you!

Barbie said...

Stopping by from The Blog Party. It was nice getting to know you!

LETO said...

Hi from the party!

Susan said...

So nice to meet you!!

What a busy mom you are...

I come from a large family, I'm the mom of 5 sons.

Loved reading your answers.

Blessings to you.

PS I love Anne of Green Gables too♥

Wanda said...

Oh my goodness. We have a lot in common.
Anne my favorite.
My BFF and I claim we are Anne & Diana.
We've watched those movies over and over. Laughing and crying!

Great choice!

Mama Britt said...

wow 10 kids! I am 19 and just had our 1st (4 months old) and love it. I hope to have a houseful one day!!!

Betsy Markman said...

Wow, I'm inspired. I think three kids is a least MY three!
You know what I do about those pesky odd socks? I have 2 wire clothes hangers, one for dark colored socks, and one for light colored. I just clothespin the odd socks to the appropriate hanger, and it makes it so easy to spot them when you need them! Much easier than a pile in a drawer.

Lynnette Kraft said...

You're too much fun. I hate matching socks too. I'm with you on air conditioning (since I don't live in a mild climate)...we are kindred with our movies and characters we like...and so much more too.

It was so much fun popping over tonight. I absolutely love that header picture! Makes me think I will do something creative like that - with four less people though. I often wonder what we'd look like with all 9 of our children - but that's okay - it's the way God picked it. :)

Thanks for linking up and inviting me over.

Stopping by from Lynnette's. I, too, love books and reading! Wish I had more time to read more variety.

Please stop by sometime.

Be blessed,


September said...

WOW!! SO happy to have found your blog thru this wonderfully fun Harvest Party! We have a lot in common, and so I enjoyed persuing your blog!
Your matching socks chore sounds like ours. I have up a long time ago and gave into a sock basket that gets matched once in a while. Heehee.. my poor children.

I loved your spelling post today. I read it with much eagerness,, for I have tried to develop my own spelling theories as well.
Have you ever heard the connection of a child's crawling related to spelling? The right/left brain cross-over? ( I KNOW that this sounds crazy!!).. we will have to "chat!"
So wonderful to "meet" you!

Desi said...

Hi! Dropping by from the blog party :) I have to tell you, your header is absolutely fabulous! What a great idea!! I just wish I knew ANYTHING about blogger-- I am still such a newbie I scare myself!

Anyway! I LOVE the Sound of Music! I grew up on the classic musicals and they are still among my favorite movies :)

When my husband and I got married, he was under the impression that The Sound of Music was a cheesy, girlie movie... imagine how much I laughed when he finally agreed to watch it with me and sat spell bound on the edge of his seat the entire time! LOL- He even started admitting he liked old musicals after watching Seven Brides for Seven Brothers! (hehehe!)

Angela said...

I love books (and naps), too! And I love the picture at the top of your blog! You are blessed!

In Christ,
Angela @ Eternal Outlook
