Random Days and Wednesdays



1. Would you rather host party or simply attend a party?

Host. I love making the food and being the hostess gives me something to do besides mingle and chat, which I am so not good at!

2. Tell us about the most memorable party you've been to.

My wedding reception.

3. What is one thing you hope for in the after-life?

Heaven is enough - it will be beyond anything I could ever dream of.

4. What do you enjoy most about sunshine?

The light. I tend to get SAD (seasonal affective disorder) if there are too many gray days.

5. When you attend a bridal/baby shower, do you prefer to bring your own gift or chip in with others to buy a larger gift?

Bring my own.

6. Would you rather have a FREE week of having your house cleaned or all of your meals cooked for you and your family?

House cleaning. No contest.

7. What song describes your mood today?



8. What is something you received for your own bridal shower/wedding that you still own or use? (If you are not married, feel free to sub a gift you received a long time ago.)

The piano my man gave me for a wedding gift.

9. Your favorite flavor of ice cream is?

"Classic vanilla ice cream with a combination of dark chocolate chunks, creamy caramel chunks, roasted pecan halves, chopped almonds and walnut pieces."

Although Blue Bell's Cookies 'n Cream runs a very close second!



10. When was the last time you felt "tested?"

If I were my kids, I'd say this morning's final exam! Otherwise yesterday. And since this will post overnight, this seems fitting:
So far today, God, I've done all right.
I haven't gossiped, I haven't lost my temper,
I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or over-indulgent.
I'm really glad about that.
But in a few minutes, God, I'm going to get out of bed,
and from then on I'm going to need a lot more help. Amen.

11. "[Fill in the blank] is a food that once I start eating I find really hard to stop."

Popcorn. Pecans. Warm chocolate chip cookies.

12. "-----" is the best motivation.

Grace.

We were running in the same groove when we answered these questions. I think my answer and your answer to #12 go together well.

Now I'm going to the kitchen to get some ice cream!

I think I need to get up and get some breakfast because I am reading all these answers and I am getting hungry!

Great answers! I enjoy the planning of a party as well but not so much the cleaning (which is where the week of free cleaning would come in handy!).

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that he gave you a piano for a wedding gift! What a truly special and thoughtful choice! And the story it carries will make it a family treasure. Oh dear - you have more than one child...uh oh

Happy Memorial Day!

What a special wedding gift!

Love your answers about heaven and testing.

Susanne said...

Ah yes, #10. I can totally relate to that. Big time.

Okay, I've heard so much about this Blue Bell ice cream. Why oh why don't they make it in Canada? :v(

Kathy said...

Mmmm, that icecream sounds heavenly. I'll have to try it sometime.

skoots1mom said...

#10, totally get ;)

Amy said...

All this ice cream talk is making me very hungry. I also like to host parties, and I think that your reason is also one of the reasons I enjoy that...just keep me busy and not having to small talk.

Enjoyed your answers

Great answers, always enjoy Random Wednesdays! I would rather talk and mingle than host, but I've definitely done my share of both.
Blessings for a wonderful week-end!
