Kathy tagged me to list 25 things about myself.  Hmm…..


1. I didn’t want to get married or have children at 18.


2. I’m glad that I ended up doing both anyway!


3. I was an only child for 11 years before I got a brother.


4. My husband and I were set up on a blind date–he was 24, I was 19-almost-20.  We joke it was my first blind date and his last!  (Well, my first AND last, I guess!   )


5. We will be married 26 years on February 27.


6. It was 70 degrees the day we married (in northern IN!)


7. The church we got married in has been replaced by a Marathon Station!  (We joked that we could renew our vows by gas pump no. 3!)


8. My favorite color is lavender/purple.


9. My favorite flowers are lilacs.


10. I play flute, piano and recorder.


11. I sing soprano/mezzo-soprano (and can pitch hit alto if necessary!)


12.  I like to write and would like to write some books someday.


13. I have raspberry dark hot chocolate almost every evening! 


14.  In spite of # 13, I have lost 99 inches and 7 sizes through exercising with T-Tapp over the past two years!


15. I struggle with being consistent with anything!  I think I’m implementally impaired!!!


16. I love feminine things–teacups, ruffles, lace!


17.  I still have some Christmas presents to finish! 


18. I like to knit and sew and would like to learn tatting from my daughters!


19. I like to wear wild things sometimes, like watermelon fabric, sunflower fabric, chicken fabric……


20. My computer desk is almost always a mess!


21. My home is decorated in a cottage/country look.


22. I love to hear my children practice their instruments (and am partial right now to Leah and Cassia’s piano duet, and Susannah and Cassia’s Vivaldi Double for cello).


23. I spent my second year in college in Strasbourg, France, and got to travel some of Europe while over there.


24. I also went to Mexico the summer of my senior year in high school.  (And used to be fluent in Spanish….)


25. I’m hoping the Lord blesses us with more children–I feel better in my 40s than I did in my 20s!!!


Now I’ll tag:

1. My daughters (farmgirls–Susannah likes tags!)


2. Robinseggblue


3. And Jenny! (fruitbuns)


I will try my best to get back on track with my Frugal Friday meme of feeding my family for $15 or less next week!  Pray we don’t get mumps or measles next!!!   


Blessings on your day–and weekend!!!

    LOL, yeah, I'm lovin' for this. I haven't done it yet, but I will probably in a few days. I'll let you know so that you can get all the exciting details of my life. LOL

    My desk is almost always messy too. I need some fun material to wear. I have been wearing black most of the winter. How depressing is that?

    I don't think I feel better in my forties, but I am definitely much smarter. :)

    I love lilacs as well. My mother always had lilac trees and I fell in love with the flower ever since.. I rented a house years ago and I had 3 lilac bushes in my front yard. Wow talk about a touch of heaven… well have a great day. God Bless

    Hello! : )

    Just curious, do you recommend blind dates? I mean, if you got such a wonderful man that way…

    : D

    It's fun getting to know people better this way… thanks for posting this. : )

    Love to you all God bless!

    ~ DB

    P.S. I'll be praying for your family expansion. : )

    No, DB, I would NOT recommend them! LOL! Yes, I got the perfect man for me, but we didn't know about courtship back then! ; )

    I did, however, pray that God would not let me "fall in love" again unless it was THE right one for me–and He kept His promise!

    And thanks for the prayers for "family expansion"! :-D
