RANDOM 12...




1. Define a great relationship.

open ears, open arms, & reciprocal, repentant sharing

2. Why is it called a "drive-through" if you have to stop? (Real question: What was the last food/drink you purchased at a drive-through?)
Baja Blast(fav drink) and a supreme crunchwrap from Taco Bell, yeah, baby! ...I didn't have enough cash for a Strawberry/Mango Fruitista (dangit)...the cinnamon twists were looming in the background calling my name but I didn't crack.
3. As I type this, the Butler Bulldogs are getting ready to play in the NCAA championship game. Every Hoosier is hysterical about this except me. So in honor of the Bulldogs ... what is your favorite breed of dog? (I tried.)
I'm feeling an itch for a beeshon frisee...or a miniature Doberman...or a miniature, long-haired different, I KNOW...but, I always have a hard time making up my mind that's where I am
4. If you had to move to a state besides the one you currently live in, where would you move? Leaving this state would will be hard for me one day...probably the hills of western North Carolina would win out b/c hubs would love to live there...I can envision a lake house in the mountains
5. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be? When we were growing up we were 'listened to' but I wish we could have dealt with conflict more.  I had a GREAT childhood and there WERE NOT a lot of disagreements.  Learning how to debate didn't come until high school, which I believe was a little too late.
6. Who's the funniest person you know? There are many funny youth at our church, and I can't just choose one.  Their spontaneity is priceless and they make me laugh every week...or whenever I get to be with them
7. Did you get enough sleep last night? Ironically, last night was the first night in several nights when I actually DID get enough fact, I actually slept in this morning, unintentionally, and woke at 11am...very 'out of character' for me.
8. What's the first thing you thought about this morning?
Getting a shower to help wake myself was the first thing on today's agenda... felt like I had been rolled over by a steam roller...(b/c I had slept too long. see above answer)
9. Grilled or Fried? --HONESTLY GRILLED by ALL means...simply LOVE that charcoal, mesquite,oak/,etc.
coming out in each bite...I would have made an incredible cave woman with outdoor cooking on the fire or open pit...right up my alley.
10. Are you afraid of the dark? Typically I'm only skiddish in the dark when hubs is away on a business trip...spooky noises suddenly emerge from the bowels of our house and I wake to any of them
11.When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Being a kid was first on my agenda...and I never 'professions' much thought...although, I ALWAYS knew I wanted to be a mom.  Making-a-living got a lot of thought when I was getting ready to head to mind changed quite often even as a junior/senior. 

12. If you had one word to describe yourself , what would you choose?

Hot...take it as you will.

Funny, I decided on NC as well, just didn't specify the mountains!

SouthLakesMom said...

#12 - Hot? Ha ha -- this has a whole new meaning with the coming of summer in spring (89 yesterday) or being over 40 . . . thanks for the laughs!

Have a great day!

Joyce said...

#12...well, I'm in the age bracket where hearing that word means sweating : ) Right there with you!

Enjoy your day!

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

You're one HOT momma!

2Thinks said...

Hot! ha! You are

Hey, this is the 2nd attempt I am making to tell you SURPRISE is waiting on my blog for you today! Woo hoo!! Earlier, blogger wouldn't let my comment post.

Your answer about the dark is closer to what I really feel, but didn't think to write it for my answer.

Oh, lookie there..I just saw my comment is up there. Well, whadda ya know. I'm posting this anyway. Woo hoo!!

Cathy said...

I said North Carolina too. I want a dachshund too.

Melli said...

I can envision a house on a lake too... or a house on an ocean... or a house on a river... canal? Right now all I get is an occasional house on a puddle! Thank God for PUDDLES!

I love Baja Blast too. But it is really the only thing at Taco Bell I do love. I wish you could get it at some of the other places! :)

Sounds to me like you need a dog...

Pam Ponder said...

great answers...HOT huh???

You are HAWT! Love your wit, as usual. And leave it to you to have such a spunky format. You made me rethink the grill vs. fry question. Thanks for the day brightener.

Heart2Heart said...

Great answers. I too love a home by a lake or any body of water for that matter. Something soothing about it and peaceful. Here is hoping that you get your wish one day.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Western NC suits me just fine! I hope to have a home in the mountains one day. I'll meet you there...


2Thinks said...

Good morning. Sorry if my impatience is showing, but where shall I send the prized book?

I'm wrapping it up. Happy Thursday!

Nel said...

#12 LOL
North or South Carolina would suit me fine for those retirement years :-) Love the mountains!
Glad you got a good nights sleep -- they're so welcomed when we get them!
Have a wonderful week :-)
