11. I am so thankful I can call Christ my Savior and Lord
Favorite flower- I don't even think I have one! I'm not the flower type. But I guess I would choose alstroemeria since they were in our wedding.
How I met my hubby- He managed the local UPS store and I visited frequently to mail out my college applications. We chatted each visit and became great friends. Here we are almost 10 years later :)
Favorite blog post- I think it would be My Full Time Job since I read it often to remind and encourage myself
What brings me joy- Many things! My devotion time when I journal my prayers, date nights and late night chats with my hubby, snuggling and reading with my kids, enjoying a wonderful book, and spending time catching up with friends
Beach or mountains? - Mountains hands down. Unfortunately I live only a few hours from the sandy, messy, hot beach. Not my choice!
Cats or dogs- I would choose dogs if my daughter weren't allergic. Never, ever cats!
Who inspires me?- My husband inspires me to bring spontaneous fun into our lives and step out of my comfort zone. I also have several sweet homeschool friends who inspire me to spend more time with the Lord and to enjoy every moment with my kiddos.
One completed item on my bucket list- I've never really made a bucket list-I'm not really very adventuresome. But I've traveled to both South America and Europe and seen a play on Broadway. Those would be on my list if I made one.
Phone calls or letters?- I would choose phone calls or even Skype because I love being able to hear the voice on the other end.
If I had to wear the same outfit for a month, what would it be?- Well, to be honest, I almost do that. I live in yoga pants and tank tops. I've been known to wear the same outfit for more than 1 day in a row-sleepless nights, few showers, and lots of littles will do that to you! My hubby jokingly refers to my outfit as my "uniform."
Favorite movie- Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley. Love that story!
