This batch of questions was brought to you by my sister-in-law, Courtney. Click here to visit her blog!
1. If you could travel back in time, would you? What decade would you visit?
Yes, I would go back to the three years of Jesus’ ministry. I’d love to see Him face to face and listen to Him speak. How cool would that be?
2. What was your best Halloween costume? (fun to make? most creative?)
I’m not very good at costumes. A few years ago Stephen and I went as Popeye and Olive Oyl. It was pretty fun and we got all the items from Goodwill. One Halloween when I was little, my mom, sister and I were Dalmatians. We were super cute. My mom even made us little dog tags.
3. Do you like your name? If you weren’t called by your name, what would you want to be called?
Yes I do like my name. I love that it’s unique and I’ve only met a few people with the same name. People misspell it often but I’m okay with that. I’m just glad I never had to deal with the “which Ashley?” “which Jennifer?” “which Stephanie?” drama. A lot of these names probably seemed unique at the time and then all of a sudden…. BLAM….. there are 17 million Lindsays in your school. Stephen and I have been very intentional about picking unique names for our child.
4. In the past year, what is the BEST recipe you made. Please share it!
Oh dear. That’s a touch one! I don’t have accurate notes of the past year! It seems lame and simple but probably PW’s Roasted Garlic and New Potatoes (<- That’s a link). They are SO easy but they are so so so stinking good. I’ve also made a few of her steak sauces and they were pretty fab- one with blue cheese (I think it’s on her website) and one with a whiskey cream sauce (I think it’s in her cookbook). Both winners. Also, funnel cakes. (And for whoever asked me “What’s a funnel cake??” a few weeks ago, you need to get yourself to a state fair ASAP! And consult The Google for details.)
5. Look around – what is the nearest object or picture hanging on the wall?
I’m sitting in my bed. Sadly, we don’t have anything hanging on our walls in our bedroom. How dumb is that?? So I’m going to have to say… curtains.
6. What was the last movie you saw in a theater? Would you recommend it?
I don’t go to the movie very often so I have no clue! I hate spending $9 to see a movie that I can’t pause when I need a potty break! So we usually just get movies from RedBox. It’s very possible that the last one I saw in the theater was Julie & Julia.
7. Did you go to summer camp? Will you/do you send your kids to camp?
Yes I did. I did a 3 day overnight camp a couple times and I did a week-long overnight camp a couple times. I will definitely encourage my kids to go to camp. I got to do some fun things and have some great memories. I’m assuming my kids will be high energy (you know their father…) so this will be a great way for them to play outside doing some activities that they may otherwise never have the change to do. Archery? The Blob? Yes please!
8. What kind of ringtone do you have?
One of the standard ones that Verizon offers. I’m not sure why you’d think I’m any cooler than that. Stephen has a few: The Office, Mario Brothers, and the Intermission from Monty Python. Honestly, I think anything besides “vibrate” is annoying.
9. Where is the farthest away from home you have ever been?
10. Has anyone ever written a song or a poem for or about you?
Actually yes. I briefly dated a guy in high school who was in college and “in a band.” Our short courtship happened to fall over either Valentine’s Day or my birthday and he wrote and recorded a song for me. It was sweet… but I think that being sung to is one of the most awkward things in the world. Luckily, he agreed. He had me listen to it while he left the room.
Good questions, Courtney!! Fun, easy, and I think we’ll learn a bit about each other with this one. If you have a batch to submit, send them to me: chelsea(at)rootsandrings(dot)com.
