Friend Makin' Monday!

My friend Sarah over at I Blame Mom is in on this great little meme today too! I thought I'd jump in here and reveal a little more about the mystery o' me!

Here it is. Today's task: Copy and paste these questions to your blog and give them your own answers.

Then head on over to Sarah or All That is Good where it all started and look at everyone else's answers. Go ahead! Get to know another blogger and MAKE A FRIEND today! Yeah!!

You wouldn't be caught dead where?: at my birth...obviously! Other than that....oh let's just say a pit of viper snakes would not be a good hangin' spot for me.

Do you have any hidden talents?: All my wonderful and amazing talents are already out there! LOL! However, some of them cannot be revealed to the general public and you will just have to wonder now won't you?

Name two things you consider yourself to be very good at: I'm a pretty decent cook, according to SH and the friends. And this Mama gig is fitting in rather nicely. Most days, I think that we are all living and breathing and that is a good thing!

Name two things you consider yourself to be very bad at: I am not a huge fan of logic problems. Much to my hubs chagrin--he is good at them and of course, takes every possible moment to stump me to prove his superiority. And then there is the bad habit of not sticking with a task or project until the very end. I tend to give up a little easily at times.

Have you ever won a trophy? Several for Top Pig at the 4-H fair when I was 9 years old. Still have them. Oh the pride!

Name one thing not many people know about you: I think I'm a rather open book. Especially now that this blog exists. But sometimes I'm caught off guard that people "never imagined" something about me. I guess I would have to say the farm kid thing---people are always shocked that I grew up a farm kid in the Midwest.

Name your earliest memory: Waking up to hear my brother's new puppy whimpering in the basket in the hallway. Her name was Chase and she lived to be 17 years old, believe it or not! She was the BEST dog in the world!

What was your favorite musical group in jr. high? Why Jr. High? I don't remember but I was a huge fan of Air Supply back in those days.

What was something the worst roommate you ever had did? I've never had a roommate! Only a husband. And let's just say that I don't find expulsion of bodily fluids something I want to hear....

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?: My cousin and I played that we were famous singers, all. the. time! I really wanted to grow up and sing country music. I'm still sad I didn't pursue that dream.

What was your worst dating experience?: I was not a big dating kind of gal. More like hung out with groups of people. But I did have what I *thought* would be a great date with a guy to see a Picasso exhibit at the local museum. The exhibit was amazing! The guy---strange is not quite adequate enough word to describe him! Conversation kept going in the direction of really personal hygiene issues and yes, this was a FIRST date and no, that is not something I really talk about with even my closest friends. I ran, not walked, away from that one!

If you were about to die what would your last meal be?: A wonderful, fresh, hearty loaf of multi-grain bread with Irish butter. For the WHOLE MEAL! Yum!

Who is the most important person in you life?: I can't limit that to one. That is too difficult. Everyone has a role and of course, my husband and children are equally important. I will say though that my God comes first and foremost, always!

If your house was on fire what 3 things would you grab on your way out?: My children and husband. That's three.....everything else can be replaced.

Did you learn anything? How about it....want to be my friend?!

WOW...4-H. Before moving to Dallas we use to live in a small rural town and my kids were always involved in 4-H. I really miss that....always loved going to the fair to see the animals.

Cassie said...

I'm laughing out loud at "expulsion of bodily fluids" haha!

Thanks for coming by today! :o) I had fun reading your post. :o) A number of years back, my husband and I invested in an electric mill and some wheat. We have been making fresh bread ever since! Wish I could send you a loaf and it not go bad before it arrived! :o)
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne

I love the quote in your header. I remember that from the movieThe Shadowlands with Anthony Hopkins. Loved it then...still do :)

I love logic problems..
I was a 4-H er too. WE raised rabbits, and I remember I won an electric cattle prod at a raffle. I was like...what am I going to do with an electric cattle prod? A dude that could use it gave me $10, so I went out and bought some gum and icecream and was happy.

Have a great Monday!

I was in 4H and FFA. People are always surprised to hear that about me too. I used to raise chickens and for some reason, that just fascinates people!

Valerie said...

What a cute meme, and it's great to get to know you better. I'm loving your menu for your last meal.. Hee hee!!

momma said...

heidi said...

I hang all my laundry out in public, too, so I'm always shocked when people say "I never knew that about you!" I'm like, "Really? Have you NOT been paying attention?!" Sheesh!

Samantha said...

Enjoyed reading your list ! I was a 4-H girl also, wonderful memories !
