Ten on Tuesday (48)
I didn’t remember to post the questions until about 8:20 last night, so I’m not sure how many participants we’ll have. Sorry about that y’all. My brain is elsewhere.
This week’s questions come from Elizabeth at Balentine’s Day. The theme is Favorites. Enjoy!
1. Growing up, what was one favorite item that you had to have with you at all times?
As a baby, it was my DiDi. (Pronounced Die Die.) They were just old burp cloths/ cloth diapers. I used them as my security blanket. I wasn’t attached to anything as a kid.
2. Being an adult, what is one favorite item that you have to have with you at all times, and what happens if you do not have it with you? Do you lose your sanity or just go back home to get it?
Chapstick. I cannot be without it. If I happen to forget it, I absolutely have to stop to buy a new one. This is a non-negotiable.
3. Where is your favorite place to be to just hide away from everything and breathe for a moment?
In my house. That’s pretty much the only place I “hide.” If I need to hide from my whole life, I take a warm bath with a glass of wine. It’s My Time.
4. What is your favorite thing about your partner? (If you don’t have a partner, then someone who is very close and will always be in your life)
That’s really hard. I think my favorite thing about him is that he is extremely thoughtful. He always opens my door. He randomly rubs my feet. And he’s thoughtful when it comes to the other relationships in his life too. And also, he’s hot.
5. What is your favorite thing about your job? (If you don’t have a job, then what is your favorite thing that you do during your day?)
My favorite thing about my job is that I get paid.
6. What is your favorite lesson that your parents taught you growing up? Looking back, is it something that you want to use to teach your children when they reach that age?
I was raised in a Christian home and they taught me many valuable spiritual lessons. However, I think one of the most important things my parents taught me is money management. As a little kid I got an allowance and I gave a portion to church and a portion to savings. This has stuck with me and it’s now an important part of Stephen’s and my life. We will definitely teach our children this lesson. There is way too much debt and materialism in America these days. It’s disgusting. I hope our kids don’t get sucked into that world.
7. What is your favorite song, that will always bring a smile to your face and make you think of something happy?
I don’t have a favorite song but Cheyenne by George Strait is one of my favorites. I also love most David Crowder and Chris Tomlin songs.
8. What is your favorite things about being an American? (If you not American, what are you proud of in regards to your country)
I have no intelligent way to answer this. I’m sure I should say something about freedom and liberty, but I don’t know enough about other countries to know if life here is that much better.
9. What is your favorite meal that reminds you of being a child?
Apricot chicken or my mom’s meatloaf.
10. Name 3 things that other people would say are their favorite thing about you.
Stephen loves my legs… but I’m hoping that he’s the only one that thinks that. I don’t know. I’m dependable, a good listener, and a great emailer!
