Lots of things meme

I was tagged about 2 weeks ago for this meme from Jen at Cheaper Than Therapy. Sorry, Jen for taking so long :). I have loved reading her blog and also met her over at Mom's Blogger Club. She is lots of fun! And if you go there right now, you will see another meme I tagged her for posted today. Crazy. Simply just bloggy craziness!!!

Favorite person ?
Hubby. He works a lot and I miss him very much when he is gone. Hands down - he is my favorite person to hang out with. That's why I married him!!!

Favorite food?
Hard one - I LOVE food. I love Mexican food the most, though.

Quirks about you?
Too many to list.

How would the person who loves you most describe you in ten words or less?
This is from Hubby who is standing right here right now: Loving, compassionate, caring, conscientious, generous, wife, mother, friend. Aw, thanks honey.

Any regrets in life?
Sure. Not finishing college. With 20 hours left, I moved to Dallas to be with my hubby and never went back. I would like to finish someday.

Favorite Charity/ Cause? Compassion, ICDI

Favorite Blog recently?
Wow, I have found so many great ones lately! And of course, I have my old faves. I have enjoyed reading and "chatting" with Carrie from the Gremlin Wrangler. She is FUNNY! Oh my, she makes me laugh.

And while there has not been anything funny on this blog lately, this family is truly been inspiring to me. I have sat and read her posts crying my eyes out, but her faith is unbelievable. Bring The Rain

Something you can’t get enough of? My kids hugs. Chocolate. Seeing people transformed by their faith.

Worst job you've ever had? Cocktail waitress in a techno dance club. I had to wear a black outfit with glow in the dark paint speckles all over it. It was ugly and way too tight! I could never count back the money right because the music was so dang loud and the people were so drunk and screaming in my ear. I got so freaked out and would just give them the wrong change back. I would always leave with very little tips.

What job would you pay NOT to have? Maybe anything to do with raw sewage. That doesn't sound too pleasant.

If you could be a fly on the wall, where? The tree house in the backyard

Favorite Bible verse right now? Matthew 16:24-26 (Message)
24-26... "Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You're not in the driver's seat; I am. Don't run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I'll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself? What could you ever trade your soul for?

Guilty Pleasure? Junk food

Got any confessions?
Not that I am gonna share here! :)

If you HAD to spend $1,000 on YOURSELF, how would you spend it?
I would go on a vacation somewhere with my favorite person. ;)

Favorite thing about your house?
My new patio!!!

Least favorite thing about your house?
My smallish kitchen.

One thing you are bad at?
Being on time.

One thing you’re good at?
Listening to a perfect stranger tell me their problems.

If you could change something about your circumstances, what?
I would learn to let go more. Just let it go. Otherwise, my circumstances are good.

Who would you like to meet someday?
Can't wait to meet Jesus!

What makes you feel sexy?
A new pair of high heels.

Who is your real life hero? Any mom.

What is the hardest part of your job?
Not enough time to myself.

When are you most relaxed?
At night

What stresses you out?
Too much to do in too little time.

What can you not live without? lipgloss. No really -coffee.

Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists?
Some are, I guess, but I feel like most are just really genuine people that want to write about what is important to them and share that with others. I think most have real purpose in their blogs. Unlike me. ;)

Why do you blog?
I love the community and I need to get things out of my head. It has become a hobby now.

Who are you tagging?
Since, I just tagged a few people recently in another meme, I am going to break the rules here and just tag you, you and YOU! Please play along and let me know if you did. Especially if you are a new blogger!

Here were the rules:

1. Answer the questions
2. Link back to whoever tagged you
3. Tag eight bloggers to do the same, 2 from each category. New/ newer bloggers (since we want to share the love and send them traffic) Bloggy friends, bloggers you’d like to get to know better Bloggers you don’t think will respond, but you hope will.

Saturday is a good day for a meme isn't it? ;) Thanks for playing...and sorry I took forever to get back to you on the "random facts" but I realized it sounded familiar and I had done the 10 things. LOL. Anyway. Have a great weekend! ;)

Isn't Bring the Rain heartwrenching? Isn't it unbelievable how you can connect and shed tears for someone you've never even met? What a powerful story. It makes me wonder what in the world people do without Christ in their lives. The grief would be unbearable.
