Blog Party


Lynnette over at Dancing Barefoot on Weathered Ground is hosting another blog party...sound like fun, want to join in, meet some cool people?  Then click on the button above and get going!  Here are my answers to the questions that she asked...

1. What is your favorite thing to snack on while you're blogging?
I usually blog after we eat lunch and when Molly takes a nap, so realistically I should be full, but sometimes I grab some chocolate
2. What is one thing you wouldn't want to live without?
My family
3. Beach, Mountains or Farm? Where would you live if you had a choice?
How about a farm on top of a mountain, close to water somewhere
4. What's your least favorite chore/household duty?
All of them, I don't enjoy cleaning, but I do it none the less
5. Who do people say you remind them of?
My Mom, and if I get, "oh, is this your sister?" one more time, good grief!
6. Prefer parties and socializing or staying at home with the fam?
Staying home with my family, inviting company over, but I do love a good party every now and then
7. What's your all time favorite movie?
Don't have just one, but I do love The Sound of Music or Just Married
8. Do you sleep in your make up or remove it like a good girl every night?
I try to remove every night, and I am usually successful 95% of the time, but there are some nights, I just go to bed with it on
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 want to learn how to play the piano, or learn how to sew 
10. What's one strange thing you're really good at?
Being myself, oh wait, you said strange, not scary
11. What first attracted you to your spouse?
Well I first met Eric when I was in third grade, but once we really noticed each other, I would say his height, and how easy it was to talk to him
12. What is something you love to smell?
Molly fresh from the bathtub
13. Tell something about you that you know irritates people.
Being too polite sometimes
14. When you have extra money (HA!) what's the first thing you think to do with it?
Probably spend it, maybe that is why we don't have extra money :)
15. Are you a silent laugher or a loud laugher? What makes you laugh the hardest?
I am a loud laugher, and I get the whole upper body moving too, I usually laugh at things most people don't, like when someone falls down, I laugh
16. Where is your favorite place to shop?
Wal-Mart with Target a close second
17. What's one thing you'd do more often if you had more time?
Read
18. Are you a big spender or frugal?
Both, I like a great bargain, but if it's something I will use daily and it's a good price, I will spend the extra money
19. Who is your favorite character of all time (from a movie or book)? (Can't be real)
Mary Poppins, she knows how to handle kids

20. Would you want to be famous?
No, nada, no thank you...I just want to serve the famous one-Jesus

Wow! We have a lot in common, dearie! I love the movies you mentioned and the fact that you would like to be Mary Poppins! Oh wouldn't that be grand! What I wouldn't give for some of the tricks she always had up her sleeve (or should I say in her bag?)! I think I'm a little late for the blog party, but I am trying to get back into a routine of blogging-- I've missed all the wonderful friends I've met--it's like I took a long vacation or something!

Kari @ p.s. love.love. said...

Great answers. I'd grab the chocolate too! Can't stand to clean - any aspect of it. So cool that you and your hubby have known each other so long. So special. I'm too polite, but getting better. In the past I was so in bondage to people, it was, well, bondage. I have been working on that and being more concerned what He thinks and it has freed me up so much!
Always good to learn more about you :o)

Kristin said...

I loved reading your answers! We had a lot of the same ones. This was a fun party, getting to find out neat things about people :)

Veronica said...

Loved reading your list! I can totally related to seriously disliking any kind of cleaning! It all stinks if you ask me, but around here, if I don't do it, nobody will!

Holly said...

Yeah, you definitely take after your mom. You couldn't lie about being related. lol I bet your mom likes it that she gets asked if she's your sister. :)

I would love to learn to play the piano better. I can do basic things, nothing real complicated. I can play Joy Is Like The Rain pretty good!! haha

I think it's good to be polite! But I'm sure there are situations where you need more (ahem) balls and then people would get irritated. I prolly do the same thing.

Jenilee said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your answer to number 3!! how funny!

Queen Diva said...

Great post! I read a little more - I'm a crazy cat lady, too! Cats rule! :)

Susan said...

Hi Kate,

So nice to meet you! This has been fun huh?

Your Molly is precious and I can't believe you met your hubby so long ago. How sweet!!

I had to laugh out loud at Mary Poppins, that was precious.

I loved that movie as a child.

Blessings to you♥

Kelly said...

I love your answers! How neat that you've known your hubby so long! That is so special. It's great to get to know more about you :)

April said...

LOL great answers. I love the Mary Poppins answer... she DOES know how to handle kids. We all should take Mary Poppins lessons :)

Ms. Sarah said...

thank you for sharing. Loved learning more about you.

He & Me + 3 said...

That was fun. We have a lot in common too. I love the smell of my kids after bath too. Nothing like it even when they get a little older:) so squeaky clean. I am a loud laugher too.

Ah Mary Poppins, great answer! I enjoyed "meeting" you and am now following you on Twitter. I hope your little one is feeling better!

Lynnette Kraft said...

Kate, you're a neat lady. :)

Mary Poppins was a cute answer. I like her too.

Is it possible to be TOO polite? Nah! How dare people get irritated at you for that! ha!

Thanks for linking up Kate.
