If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Random Dozen

Click the button above to join in on this fun post.

1. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being a cranky-baby-hissy-fitter, how much of a complainer are you?
Depends on which day of the week it is! Probably about a 4-5. At least that's my answer. No telling what my family would say. I mean it, really, they're not allowed to tell.

2. When someone else is talking, do you listen, or are you thinking about what you're going to say in response?
I try to listen, but to be honest I'm sure a lot of the time, I'm thinking about what I'm going to say. Man, I hate being that way too.

3. I just deleted 1062 messages from my email account. Do you have any plans for a clean sweep this month--of anything?
Nope, not that I can think of.

4. Tell us about your perfume. Was it a gift? What does it remind you of? Do you have a signature scent?
I'm fairly sensitive to scents and get headaches from too much perfume. When I wear perfume, it's usually Moonlight Path Body Splash from Bath and Body Works. My girls say it's old lady's perfume, but I don't care. I still really like it.

5. What is your best organizing tip for the new year?
Be brutal and throw it away if you haven't used it in over a year (not saying I'm doing that, but you just asked for a tip. lol)

6. What is your favorite comic strip?

7. Do you sleep with a fluffy or flat pillow?
I use 3 pillow. 2 are flat and one is a little fluffier.

8. What color is your kitchen? Why did you choose that color?
Light teal on the walls, white tile between the upper cabinets and the counter top and the counter top is a mauve and gray. I picked the colors because hubby and I both like them.

9. What’s the most interesting bumper sticker you’ve seen?
I can't think of one right now.

10. Do you prefer an expensive writing tool or whatever is lying around? (Are you a Montblanc or a Papermate?)
I like the cheaper pens usually.

11. What chore doesn’t feel like a chore – you just enjoy it (at least most of the time)?
hahaha...you're kidding right!?!

12. If your parents often repeated themselves, what is something one of them said more than once?
The first one that pops into my mind is, "Close the door, do you think you live in a barn" But I know they said more profound stuff than that. lol


  1. love your answer to #11. If the name is "chore", you're not supposed to like it!

    #12, many a parent has said this haven't they?!

  2. greaat list. I have to say that perfumes are a major weakness of mine!

  3. Ha ha ha, I loved your response to Number 11. I'm right there with ya on that one!

  4. Loved your organizing tip answer! Loved your answer to # 11 too.

    My parents said the same thing.

  5. I would love to see your kitchen! If you get a chance, take a pic, and enter your link on my 'Parade of Homes' post. Teal is one of my favorite colors...

  6. rofl thats alot of e-mails

  7. This was so fun. I agree with number 5. Throw it out.

  8. Your last two answers crack me up! Also, our family initials are alot alike! We are the KTCKK Family!! Funny!

  9. Your answers were great! Too funny "you're kidding right" I loled!
    I had a hard time thinking of things my parents said who knows..but my kids will be full of them from us.

  10. I would so love a teal kitchen. We move often (in the process now) and generally lease our homes. I just told my other half I am sick of white! Happily, much of the home we are moving to is painted a lovely light shade of tan.

  11. Yep - I heard the "live in a barn" comment more than once too! Worse, I've heard it coming out my mouth to my kids! AAUUGGHH!

  12. We had several answers in common, and I think I grew up in that same barn! Nice to "meet" you.

  13. Hi, Cathy~

    What a great list! I think I may have to join in on the Random Dozen. Looks like lots of fun!

    As for snow, yes, we are supposed to get some starting around 3, but I have not heard of how much accumulation they are talking about. They are never certain until AFTER it snows! lol

    Blessings, my friend~

  14. Yesterday I moved a little box out of my way that is still packed from I moved back in AUGUST. I don't even know what's in it and I thought, I should just throw it in the garbage, but I didn't. Maybe I'll wait another six months and then take your advice. ;-)


  15. I am trying so hard to be brutal (#5) this year!

    My husband was given a Montblanc pen once...while it WAS nice, I still liked my Sharpie better!


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
