Day One of 30 day blog challenge

Joel asked me tonight why I had not posted day one of my latest challenge.  So here's day one :D

I took this picture of myself just the other day and I absolutely love it!  I think it has a lot to do with the fact that you can't see my double chin or nose hair. HA!

Okay, fifteen interesting facts.  I am going to have to put a disclaimer here to let you know that these are things that are interesting to me and maybe Joel or TinkerBell, our cat.  That being said

1. I grew up in South Carolina, near Charleston. And have no Southern accent to prove it, or the manners for that fact!

2.  I once colored my hair a deep cherry red on a dare.

3.  I am a pastor's wife.

4.  I love to write, but don't really know if I want to be published

5.  We were able to conceive our daughter after trying for a few months and haven't been able to conceive in the six years since.  I guess if anyone says that Hannah broke the mold, they wouldn't be telling too big of fib.

6.  I am actually growing to love women's ministry!

7.  Converse College is my Alma Mater and I tell every young woman I meet that's looking into college that she should go there!

8.  I love to turn the music up full blast when I'm in the car alone.

9.  Most people cry at weddings, I almost always cry at baptisms and sometimes during communion.

10.  God uses books to teach me very real things about myself and how to change or cultivate them.

11.  I've been blogging at various places on the internet for at least the past six years.  I think I like it.

12.  I was converted from vegetarianism thanks to Jack in the Box's Bacon Ultimate Cheese Burger and Crown and Anchor's Jalapeno Cheeseburger.

13.  The first time I ate guacamole, I thought it tasted like dirt. Now I think it tastes divine!!!

14.  I like to send snail mail, but have a hard time keeping stamps in the house.

15.  Our cat, Ralph, liked to sleep on my head.  Our new cat, Tink, likes to sleep right next to my pillow.  I guess I have cathead.

  1. HAHAHA Cathead! I like that.
    I will join you in that challenge! Will you have topics daily, or is this more of a free-form deal?

  2. I think I'll try to do it daily. I don't normally post on Fridays, but can definitely set it up to post one a day for the next 30 days. Woot! You can get the rest of the questions in the previous post. I can't wait to read yours!!

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together. Reserve 2 tbsp for garnish. Press mixture onto bottom and sides of a greased 9-inch springform pan. Chill in the freezer while preparing the filling. Mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth and light. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and cornstarch until just blended. S

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W
