Meme Contest

I've been tagged by Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee for a blog tour meme in the hunt for gold treasure. The treasure? Chocolate gold coins and the Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War series by Tricia Goyer. Since I love books, chocolate, and contests, I figured this was my cup of tea mocha!

There will be 3 winners, so I will begrudgingly invite happily tag any of you that wish to join the meme! The rules are posted at (the other) Linda's!

So. . . . Here are my answers to the following questions:

1. List three things you would do with a chest full of gold (assuming you got to keep it!)

I would give a substantial portion to my church, put aside enough to pay for our kids' college expenses, and enable my husband to retire so he can spend all his time helping others like he'd love to do.

2. List three charities/missions/organizations you support (and why).

Our church (for obvious reasons), the International Mission Board (for sisterly reasons), and Virtuous Reality Ministries (Because I have a daughter. And a son that will need a virtuous and modest wife one day. Like when he's 40!)

3. List three ways you have volunteered your time/services.

PTA & other school activities, pastoral care and other church ministries, Virtuous Reality events

4. List three things you keep "hidden" when company comes over.

The garage, bad moods, master suite.

5. List the last three things you've lost.

My patience, sleep, my sunglasses.

6. List the last three things you've found.

A birthday gift for a friend, my man's glasses, the sour cream in the refrigerator that my 14-year-old boy couldn't find because it wasn't right in the front at eye level.

I know that is all such riveting information for you! Follow me as I go to Linda's and then to the author's blog to let them know I played!

And come back tomorrow for my own blog tour with TWO giveaways!

Cracks me up about the boy not seeing the sour cream. I hope you win the goods. Thanks for playing.
