Random Q & A

I've got lots of posts in draft but none that are ready to go.  I need to clean my bathrooms and run some errands, so I guess I won't be able to spend time blogging this morning.   I did get this meme from Kellie at La Vida Dulce last week and it seemed fun, so here it is.  Play a long if you want in the comments or on your own blog.  Let me know if you did! 


1. What's the last state you visited other than your own? Oklahoma.  Hubby was in a wedding and we visited with some family.  Beautiful wide open state.  Lots of college pride going on in that state, too.  Maybe even more than North Carolina if that is possible. 

2. What's your middle name? Janel.  I go by my middle name and it has been confusing my entire life. 

3. What is something you don't like...even though everyone else seems to? Creamer and sugar in my coffee.  I like coffee fresh and black.   I do like non-fat lattes - no sugar. 

4. What's the first costume you remember dressing up in for Halloween? A clown.  My mom made the costume. Actually, my mom often dressed us as Hobo's.  It was cheap and she would put these little corn cob pipes in our mouth, make us a knapsack on a stick and fashion some sort of beard for us.  I guess it's probably not PC to dress up as homeless people anymore because I don't see many Hobos these days.  As a matter of fact, my kids had never even heard that word. 

5. Have you ever played a sport?  Yes, as a child I tried softball and basketball.  It really is better that I don't play sports.  I am girly girl to the core and sports are just not for me.   I hide from balls when they are thrown at me - they hurt!  I do enjoy a good workout, though but that is because nobody is throwing anything at me. 

6. What is a talent you have that people might not know about? Apparently, I have some leadership skills that others see and trust in me.  I just don't get it. 

7. What's the last thing that made you laugh out loud? My kids.  They are hysterical and they laugh all the time.   Hubby and B were playing a game last night and she was winning.  He was carrying on about how she was beating him and she said to him, "Oh, poor baby, are you gonna go call your mommy now?"  I could not help but laugh out loud. 

8. Are you an oldest, middle, or youngest child? I'm the oldest. It is a bit of a curse trying to control the world. :)  No really, my two younger brothers called me "little mom" for most of my life.  I married the youngest of his family - now that is a fun dynamic in a marriage.  

9. What's the best thing you've had someone say to you lately?  I love you, Mommy.

10. What are you wearing right now? Lounge pants and a t-shirt.  My favorite outfit!


Happy Monday, friends!  Make it a good week.



May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.  Psm 20:4 NIV

Amen and Amen on the coffee. I can definitely appreciate a good, hot, cup of black coffee. (even better if it's fresh roasted) And for the non-fat latte, the only thing I allow them to put in it is pumpkin spice and sometimes a shot of cinnamon. (I just can't resist the pumpkin!)

I'm the oldest and also married the baby of his family. It does make for some interesting discussions on parenting. For the most part, we're on the same page though.

I love these meme's because we get to know so much about our favorite bloggers!

I am also the oldest with two younger brothers.

Have you ever revealed your first name on the blog before? I might have to do a search!
