My friend Sam at Sam’s Noggin has decided to give me a challenge. I guess it couldn’t have come at a better time because while I love my blog, I haven’t been blogging like I want to, or even should be. So here it goes. So, she tagged me in a post where I have to share a pic of myself, 11 random facts, and answer 11 questions from her. So, here goes nothing……
I was born in Pontiac, Michigan. I grew up in Boyne City, Michigan. I share the name of the town I grew up in because it is an incredible summer vacation destination and I want to promote it’s name.
I had my first 3 kids in 3 years time. What an exhausting time in my life.
I am not clean and organized. I am a “piler”, I make various piles of this and that all over my house, and oh how I wish I could fix this about me.
I love sugar. Almost anything made with sugar. Especially things like ice cream, coffee creamer, and chocolate. Another thing I want to fix about me.
I am a Beachbody Coach. I am brand new to Beachbody, but I will help in anyway I can to help you find what you are looking for.
I love water. Lakes, Oceans, and rivers make me feel closer to God. When I was a teenager, I would go to my “thinking spot” to think and pray to God. My “thinking spot” was a rock set right beside the river behind my house.
I love to journal. I have been journaling since I was a teenager. While I do not sit to do it as often as I did as a teenager, I do still keep one today. (that is another reason I have a blog)
I dreamt I would become a writer some day. I haven’t pursued that dream as fervently as I did becoming a mother.
I am a very shy person, it is hard for me to approach people even if I know them. It doesn’t help that I also have a fear of rejection.
I love road trips, ALONE!!! Enough said.
I love genealogy. I have been researching my Dad’s side of the family and discovering things we did not know about his family previously. It’s so exciting, even if what we discover is negative.
1.How long is your longest friendship?
Hmmm, this one is hard to answer because it depends on the depth you are speaking of. I have kept in touch with my former high school best friend, but it’s not the same as it was then, we have been friends for 24 years (about). As for closer friends, I have one friend whom we have been friends for about 16 years. The thing is for me is that if you stick around in my life past a certain point I just claim you as family.
2. Have you ever left the country?
Does Canada count? That’s it for me, I have been to Canada a couple times. I grew up in Michigan, and we took two field trips with school. One was on a geology hunt. The other was with our drama club, we went to Toronto and saw Phantom of the Opera (Amazing!).
3. What hidden talent do you have, but seldom share?
Hidden talent? I sing. That’s my only talent quite frankly. Sadly, I mean that, and I don’t even think I am that good at singing, but I love it and have been on worship teams since I was a teenager. I even lead worship quite a few times. Not in years though.
4. Are you a homebody or extrovert?
Hanging my head in shame, I am a homebody.
5. What is your favorite meal of the day?
Well, I have been drinking Shakeology by Beachbody and that has become my favorite meal. But ordinarily I used to love dinner.
6. How many hours do you sleep each night?
On average, I sleep around 6-7 hours a night if my children let me.
7. Do you have a favorite perfume?
Beautiful by Estee Lauder
8. Who do you most admire?
I most admire those who have spotless houses even though they have children. They amaze me.
It’s an impossible task, so how do they do it? I haven’t figured it out.
10. What is your favorite book?
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers is my favorite book EVER!!!! It speaks of God’s amazing and incredible love for us. He won’t ever let us go. We belong to Him.
11. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
The power to stop time and yet I still move…. So that I can get everything I need to get done while time stands still.
So, there it is…. My Random things. I am not sure if I was required to tag anyone…. I might have to come up with some people to tage if it is a requirement.
