Some Random Stuff About Me

A'right. It's Thursday, and that is awesome. W. started his summer camp today, and he's excited to hang out with his friends. I'm SWAMPED at work right now. In fact, I have a million things running through my head that I need to accomplish, but right now, I want to spend some time with you. So, that's what I'm doing. My sweet friend Kelly posted a questionnaire on her blog, and I thought I would participate. So, here goes...
Favorite Person (outside of family)? There is no way I can pick just one person. I know you are probably sick of reading about how much I love my friends, but it is true. I do love my friends, especially my girlfriends. I love how each one has a unique personality and is uniquely gifted. I learn so much from each of my friends, and I love them all. I just don't believe that you can ever have too many friends, and I love making new ones. So there. My favorite people are my friends, especially my girlfriends!
Favorite Food? You have got to be kidding me. I have to choose one? That's just not fair. That's kind of like asking a mother which one of her children she loves more. I suppose if I HAD to choose, I would probably say steak. I love a yummy steak, as long as it is cooked correctly!
Quirks About You? This question would probably be better posed to George. I'm more than likely biased. Of course, he may be afraid to tell the truth for fear of ugly repercussions, so maybe I need to answer after all...Alright then, I would say I'm truly geeky, I like to make up my own words, I've been known to bust out in song at random moments in time (and, yes, I dance too), I play with my eyelashes when I'm tired, and I can carry on conversations in my sleep.
Regrets in Life? Absolutely. I know that "in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28. But, I wish I had given God more cooperation along the way. God really has worked a lot of junk in my past for the good, and here I am now. So, it's not all a loss. I am forever thankful for God's grace and mercy!
Favorite Blog Recently? See, Answer to question number 1. All of them! I love learning about each of you.
What Job Would You Pay NOT to Have? Anything that has to do with or is in anyway connected to a circus. Well, except maybe the trapeze artist...
Favorite Bible Verse Right Now? "John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, "I am the voice of one calling in the desert, 'Make straight the way for the Lord.' " John 1:23. Why? Because I want to point the people in my life to Jesus. Instead of attempting to fix everything for them, I just need to point them to Jesus. Oh, and it's currently my favorite verse because it's one of the verses for the Bible study I'm doing with CAROLINE!!! She is so cute, and so is her voice! I can't wait to study this with you, girlfriend!
Got Any Confessions? Ha ha, ha ha, ha. Wouldn't you like to know?
If You HAD to Spend $1,000.00 on Yourself, How Would You Spend It? Oh, let's see. Spa treatments, skin care products, and personal training sessions.
Favorite Thing About Your House? Being in close proximity to those I love most in the world...My pictures of Jon Bon Jovi. Ha! Just kidding people; it's just a joke. No, seriously, I love being around my boys. I wouldn't trade them for anything.
One Thing You Are Bad At? One, only one? Well, I am terrible at relinquishing control. And, I am terrible about living without structure. Let's just say, I love itineraries.
One Thing You Are Good At? Talking. I love to talk, and I can do all kinds of talk. I can talk nice, or I can argue with you. Whatever you prefer. I guess that's why I went to law school. Well, that and Ally McBeal.
If You Could Change Anything About Your Circumstances, What Would You Change? Sisters, I would get a new job. Hands down, that's what I'd change!
Who Would You Like To Meet Someday? I want to meet any of you that I haven't met, of course. I would also love to meet Beth Moore.
Who Is Your Real Life Hero? Well, if you're talking about an earthly hero, I've been asked this before, and I really don't know. We all come from such different backgrounds and circumstances. Some of us have had it easier than others, but we all face troubles, and we've all overcome something. I admire everyone who has struggled to overcome something in her life, or is still struggling with it, but hasn't given up. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I can't pick an earthly person. I admire so many people for so many different reasons. If He can be real, and alive, but not earthly, then my Hero is Jesus. Because He is worthy!
When Are You Most Relaxed? When I'm with the people I love.
What Stresses You Out? Ha! L-I-F-E, baby! It all has a tendency to stress me out, but if I had to pick one thing, right now it would be my place of employment.
Why Do You Blog? I started this blog on a whim. I just thought I could write about random things that were going on in my life, and obviously, that is exactly what I do. But, I would have never stuck with it if my friends hadn't been faithful readers, and if I hadn't made some great blog friends. It's really a funny thing, these blogs. Even though I've never met most of you, I feel as if I know you. And, I really do consider you to be my friends. Maybe you don't feel the same way, and if you don't, please don't tell me, but you're all friends to me. And, you're all just as dear to me as the wonderful, marvelous, and amazing friends I am blessed to see on a regular basis. So, I blog because it's all about the bike. Just kidding. It's all about you, girlfriends, and I love you!
