I wouldn’t want to live without my Bible. We are so privileged in this country to have such easy access to the Word of God.
I would live on a farm and take vacations to the beach and the mountains!
I dread dusting the window blinds. It’s one of the few household duties that I don’t enjoy doing. However, I must say that my new cleaning rags have made this chore much easier!
In personality traits and personal habits, people say I’m like my dad (patient and persistent, perfectionist in some things, deep thinker–and thus, sometimes poor listener). In appearance, people say I look like my dad and my Uncle Curtis (and when I was younger, Mariah Carey ).
6. Prefer parties and socializing or staying at home with the fam?
Dirty Dancing has to be my all-time favorite movie! One of my childhood friends owned it, and we would watch it every time I spent the night at her house. At some (pre-DVD) point in time, my parents finally bought the VHS copy that I still have. There are several other movies that I could watch time and again, but I think I will always go back to Dirty Dancing as my favorite!
I do not sleep in my makeup. But don’t be too impressed–I wear it only about once a week (and even then, it’s only eye makeup).
No hidden talents that I know of. But I have always thought it would be fun to learn to play the violin. They make such beautiful music….
According to my husband, I’m really good at ironing… and making nachos.
Travis‘ relationship with Jesus is what first attracted me to him. I always remember one particular time in college that I was studying in the balcony of the library. When I looked out over the study cubicles on the level below, I saw Travis. He had a backpack full of textbooks, but the book he was studying was his Bible.
I love the smell of coffee. It’s so… inviting!
I get lost in my thoughts–especially when I’m reading or writing–and therefore tend to space people out when they talk to me (see #5). It’s irritating–and hurtful–so I have to be cautious of it.
My first thought is usually to pocket it until something comes up that I really want. I like to think through purchases before spending my money; and even once I decide how I want to spend my money, it takes me a long time to actually do it.
I’m more of a silent laugher than a loud laugher, though most of my laughs are at least audible. I think my mom and my sister probably make me laugh the hardest, but my kids are close behind!
I buy almost all of my clothes from Maurices. Usually any “extra” money that I get to pocket (see #14) ends up getting spent there.
I would love to read more.
I am definitely frugal, but there are times when I wish I could be a big spender!
I don’t know if she’s my favorite… but I really like Meg Ryan’s character in the movie You’ve Got Mail. She’s so real and laid back. And, of course, the romance….
I think it would be okay to be famous as long as I could continue walking in a manner worthy of the One who called me (see Ephesians 4:1).
