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

Wednesday Hodgepodge

Click the Hodgepodge button to join in and play along.
1. Lake Superior University has once again published a list of words/phrases they think should be banished from the Queen's English in 2012-

amazing, baby bump, shared sacrifice, occupy, blowback, man cave, the new normal, pet parent, win the future, trickeration, ginormous, and thank you in advance.

Which of these words/phrases would you most like to see banished from everyday speech and why? Go here to read more about how the words are chosen.
Trickeration???  Never heard of this one.  I personally don't care for baby bump.  It's just personal preference.  Why not just say baby or pregnant?

2. Are you easily embarrassed?

3. What is your go-to snack?
Oreo cookies
4. Have you ever been to Washington D.C.? If not do you have any desire to go? What site/attraction would you most want to see in that city? If you have been, what's your favorite site/attraction?
I went as chaperone on my daughter's 8th grade trip.  I love DC and hope to go back again some day.  I'd love to tour the White House and Library of Congress and see the Aerospace part of the Smithsonian.  My favorite attraction that I've been to is Lincoln's Monument.  I love it and just so much want to climb up and sit in his lap.  Somehow I think that would be greatly frowned upon.  

5. sit ups-planks-lunges-squats...which do you hate the least?
I hate them all equally!! Definitely no favoritism being shown on my part.

6. What's a small act of kindness you were shown that you've never forgotten?
On my wedding day a friend unexpectedly loaned me a beautiful diamond necklace (made from her mother's rings) to wear.  I had no idea and it looked perfect with my dress.  I'll never forget her kindness.

7. Have you ever been a blood donor?
Yes I have, but not for quite awhile.  Although, I did just have a blood test today and it sure seemed like they took a lot.  :)

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I worked 15 hours on Tuesday...sure does make for a loooong day.  But the extra money sure will be nice.


  1. I am not exactly fond of baby bump either. I do love the Oreo's but they don't like me anymore! :(

    15 hours is a long day getcha some oreos and relax!

  2. 15 hours? That's insane. LOL And, I love the random act of kindness story!! What a special friend to lend you the necklace [something borrowed]


  3. I'm glad you got to travel to DC, I hope to as well some day. Sitting on Lincoln's lap? Well that will make an interesting news story.

  4. Sitting on Lincoln. Heehee! That is something my impulsive self would try! Have you ever seen it lit up at night? Its gorgeous!

  5. 15 hours! That makes for a mighty long day. I had a job where I had to work a lot of overtime ... but I never had to put in 15 hours in one day. The extra pay is nice.

    What a sweet gesture from your friend on your wedding day.

  6. I love the Lincoln Memorial too and especially the view from the top of the steps. I could not tell you the last time I ate an oreo but they are a very popular snack in the Hodgepodge : )

  7. What a special wedding day "gift".

  8. Enjoyed your answers! I could just see you on Lincoln's lap and your kids rolling their eyes when they read it in the newspaper...lolol
    What a special act of kindness, would love to see a picture... just saying!
    until next time... nel

  9. I'm with you on the exercise. And the oreos. :) And I could do without baby bump too... I just don't care for the sound of it. Hope you get a chance to put your feet up soon!

  10. Loved reading your answers. So sweet of your friend to loan you the necklace. I'm lucky enough to get off the sofa let alone do those exercises!
