1. Would you rather host party or simply attend a party?
Definitely attend although I don't usually go to them when I am invited!

2. Tell us about the most memorable party you've been to.
It's been a very long time since I've been to one. Loved my daughters wedding!

3. What is one thing you hope for in the after-life?
Meeting Jesus,being with my family, dogs and friends. How fun it will be to see everyone who I loved who passed years ago. (mother, grandparents,etc.)

4. What do you enjoy most about sunshine?
It's warmth & the fact that it just makes me happier then a cloudy day! I guess I could say that it is what our plants need to grow and without it we wouldn't have all the wonderful food that God gave us.

5. When you attend a bridal/baby shower, do you prefer to bring your own gift or chip in with others to buy a larger gift?
I love to bring my own gift. I think it is so much fun to shop and wrap the gift.

6. Would you rather have a FREE week of having your house cleaned or all of your meals cooked for you and your family?
Meals would be nice but I will pick my house cleaned, I would want them to do all the ugly stuff like the wooden blinds, windows, clean cabinets and things I don't do too often.

7. What song describes your mood today? (actually yesterday when I did this)
If your happy and you know it clap your hands! I bowled great and it was just a very nice last day of the season for our league.

8. What is something you received for your own bridal shower/wedding that you still own or use? (If you are not married, feel free to sub a gift you received a long time ago.)
My china which I love even after 38 years. A nice wooden salad bowl that I keep potpourri in.

9. Your favorite flavor of ice cream is?
Butter Pecan

10. When was the last time you felt "tested?"
Right now, I will post about it later this week.

11. "[Fill in the blank] is a food that once I start eating I find really hard to stop."

12. "-----" is the best motivation.
I am not a very motivated person so I am going to say a good partner. Like someone to push you to walk with them. Someone to help you clean out a closet. I guess I could get motivated if someone offered me a trip or a very large sum of money. On a different note helping someone in need is also a motivator. (when they get into my heart)

I'm with you Debby. I would rather have the icky parts of my house cleaned. I'd have someone clean behind the toilets, under the refrigerator, blinds and walls. I have avoidance issues with those chores.

Mara said...

6. The house cleaned. I can do my own cooking and not die of food poisoning. But could the week please be the rest of my life???

Trish said...

I can't stop eating's one of my favorite foods!
Have a blessed day Debby.

Lori R. said...

Oh my, reading your answers, I think we were seperated at birth. We would get along splendidly! I would help you with closets, if you would help me with the attic!!!!

Andrea said...

Hope you have an awesome week.

Joyce said...

Oh, I'm so with you on the house cleaning. I could happily spend all day cooking : )

Hope you have a great day!

kyooty said...

girl go to the party, the mores times you don't go the easier it is to not go to the next one...

Shawna said...

Yes, a partner is great motivation.

Heather said...

I agree, its more fun to buy the gift & wrap it, than pitch in...especially gifts for a baby!

gigi said...

Great answers and I enjoyed learning just a little more about you.

Jerralea said...

I have trouble stopping when I'm at a pizza buffet, too. Hmm... in visiting other Random blogs I realize there are LOTS of foods I have trouble stopping eating!

A partner would be good motivation. I need an exercise buddy!

SouthLakesMom said...

Definitely a partner for motivation. Reminds me I need to e-mail my friend about walking tomorrow morning. I 'help' her walk her dog. A lot of starting and stopping at the beginning!

Randi Troxell said...

these questions were fun.. i like these.. and i also looove me some pizza too!

christy rose said...

Oh I would definitely rather have a free cleaning week! I love to cook! Hate to clean it up! LOL And I love love butter pecan ice cream too. That is why I never buy it! :)

Kristie said...

I have a hard time stopping eating pizza too! That stuff is just too good! LOL!

I wish someone would come clean my house for me too-especially the bathroom and any Spring cleaning ;-)

I'd rather attend a party that host one too. Sometimes I think if I had a nicer house, I'd like hosting parties more, but I actually think it just stresses me too much and has nothing to do with the house ;-)

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Oh yes a week clean house would rock!!

I so agree I rather bring my own, I love bringing something I spent time finding :)

Amy said...

great answers..

I love to host parties but it is fun to attend. Then you just get to relax and have fun..

I also like to buy my own gifts when I got to parties..

Have a great day....

That corgi :) said...

I agree with you; it will be nice to see Jesus in our afterlife and spend eternity with him :)

neat that you still like your china settings too after 38 years! I bet it is a classy looking pattern :)

good for you for bowling a great game recently too!


Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog said...

Great answers, and I especially agree with you on number 6. Would much rather have the house cleaned -- the cooking is much easier (and more fun to do!)

Cathy said...

Yep, I wish someone would clean my house too. Butter Pecan is one of my hubby's favorite ice creams too.

Together We Save said...

I always love reading your answers!! Butter Pecan is my all time favorite!!

Once again getting to know you more each week. Love that you did so great at bowling. Steve and Kailee are doing Father/Daughter bowling leagues on the weekend and they love it.

Love and Hugs ~~ Kat

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I could eat pizza for days!

I would definitely choose the housecleaning as well. The first thing would be the shower and then the toilets and windows and floors.

I feel like the last few months have been nothing but testing for me.

otin said...
