I got tagged several times. Time to pay up!

1. What is your funniest childhood story? 
Embarrassment: In Sunday School one day we were asked "What is your greatest need?" It was one of those trick-church-questions where the answer was "God." Instead, I replied, "Right now, my biggest need is shoes!". The next week a woman in our church came by with a garbage bag full of shoes. *Dying...*

2. What would your dream dress look like if you could design it? 
I'm pretty excited about the version of a Simplicity dress I'm going to make for my sister Cate's wedding. It'll be watermelon pink with an empire waist, jersey knit fabric, full tank sleeves with a gathered elastic underneath the shoulder seam, a v-neck that I'm going to overlap to keep my recent Pam Anderson growth under wraps,  a bit more fullness than the pattern calls for across the midsection, and full length maxi to the floor.

3. What weird habit does your hubby have? 
He turns off his alarm before it goes off. No kidding. Every day before the alarm goes off, he wakes up, turns it off, and sleeps in 1-2 hours more. ???

4. How many cookbooks are in your kitchen? 4? Edmonds, a collection in a notebook, Easy Econo meals, Healthy something-or-other, and a CPC fundraiser cookbook from the 80s.

5. Granny panties or loyal Victoria Secret girl? Hmmm.... Neither really.

6. My favorite memory from 2008 so far is... 
Giving birth to Joshua

7. I secretly... 
Wish I could eat a whole bar of dark chocolate right now.  

8. I could really go for... 
Bedtime. As soon as I finish this and put some food away.

9. We are going to have a big snow storm and you will find me... 
Standing Oceana by the window to watch what we haven't seen since before she was born. 

10. I knew he was the one... 
When he let me cry on his shoulder for three hours (we weren't even dating yet).

Sorry everybody, too tired to link them now. You know who you are. You stop by pretty often too...


  1. You've been tagged on my blog today too! :) As a Kreativ Blogger! I love reading your blog.

  2. Totally unrelated, but didn't know how to get this to you. I saw this today and immediately thought of you:

    I sent a link to your site, so they may be linking to you one day. But today's link is a mommy of 9, 3 of whom are partying in heaven. She's written a book, didn't know if you wanted to look into it.

    Hope you are having a great day!

    Be Strong and Courageous!

  3. Not that you need help with baby names, but it's fun to pass them along. I was watching a show on Greece tonight and one of the oldest towns in the greek isles is named Kamini (they pronounced it ka-meany) the other one is Elira. My friend named his daughter this (his wife is from Kosovo and the name is Albanian, what they speak in Kosovo) Elira translates directly into Free. God Bless you and your 3 beautiful children!

  4. I gave you a little "blog bling" today...go grab it!
