My new friend over at Moms The Word posted this quiz today, so I decided to be a copy-cat., except these are MY answers, not hers, LOL.

The phone rings. Who will it be?If it rings right now, Kim or my Son. If it rings after noon, Hubby gets thrown in the mix.

When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart?At Publix usually yes, at Walmart usually no.

In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener?I'm definitely more of a listener unless I am asked my opinion,...or unless I'm with Kim, we just talk at the same time, LOL.

Do you take compliments well?
I've been working on this since High School. I was told it made me look snobby if I just smiled when I was complimented, but I was too shy to do anything else, so I'm still learning to say "thank you". I'm also trying to stop saying "Oh, thanks,...I got it at a thrift store!" (they didn't ask!!!!)

Do you play Sudoku?No, I know it's a game or something, but I have no clue what it even looks like.

If abandoned alone in the wilderness, would you survive?
Yeah, I'm pretty sure I could survive. I might be a girly girl on the outside, but I've got some pretty good survival skills buried in there, :).

Did you ever go to camp as a kid?
Yes. I cried all the way home on the bus because I didn't think I had "enough" fun to warrant my Mom saving up all that money. Silly kid.

What was your favorite game as a kid?Livvy and Sue. What? You've never heard of it? My sister and I played a game ALL the time where we were two married adult women named Oliva (Livvy- that was me because I wanted to be Olivia Newton John) and Susan (Sue - that was my sister). We basically just ran our households, mostly going to the Dr. to get medicine for our sick children (i.e., candy at the shop on the corner).
Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you?
I'm married, so I'm not exactly on the "open market", LOL...

Do you like to pursue or be pursued?
I love it when my Hubby pursues me, LOL. :) BUT, there's also fun in the pursuit, so I guess it's 50-50, maybe 60-40...

Use three words to describe yourself?
Cake Baker, Gardener, Seamstress

Do any songs make you cry?Yes, too many to list, lol - I'm an easy crier, can't go anywhere without mascara dots on my eyelids, lol.

Are you continuing your education?Fer Wut? No. I learned so much when I was homeschooling my son and getting my hubby through college that I should have gotten the diploma and degree myself! LOL ~ on a serious note, it would be fun to got to Culinary School just for the joy of cooking!

Have you ever taken pictures in a photo booth?Yes, with my son when he was 4 years old. :)

How often do you read books?
All the time, now ask me if I finish all of them????

Do you think more about the past, present or future?
? Not sure. I guess a little of both past and future, maybe more future...?

What is your favorite children’s book?I LOVE YOU FOREVER! Oh my, I STILL can't read this book without choking on my tears. Ugh.

What color are your eyes?Green. But sometimes they appear blue depending on my clothing.

Where is your dream house located?Dream house? Hmmm....On the edge of the woods in an open field of wildflowers, near a babbling brook, somewhere near the mountains that are by the sea.... :)

If your house was on fire, what would be the first thing you grabbed?
My man! My baby girl (dog)! My Bible! My photos!

When was the last time you were at Olive Garden?I'm thinking maybe 3 months ago?
Where was the furthest place you traveled today?
The Kitchen
Do you like mustard?Yes, I love mustard - something about the tang! :)

Do you prefer to sleep or eat?
Don't we kinda require both of these? I never thought of it as a preference????

Do you look like your mom or dad?I'd say my Mom...

How long does it take you in the shower?I'm a bit of a dawdler, so probably 10-12 minutes... What? I have to shave and condition my hair!!!

Can you do the splits?
Yes. I've always been very flexible.

What movie do you want to see right now?
I don't even know what's showing, LOL.

What did you do for New Year’s?Slept.

Do you think The Grudge was scary?And that is?????????

Do you own a camera phone?
Yeah, but it takes me so long to figure out how to use it, that whatever I wanted to take a photo of is us gone by the time I'm ready.
What’s the last letter of your middle name?
e - but why do you want to know?

How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
Probably about 7

Do you like Care Bears?No, actually I really don't now that I've finally been asked by someone who apparantly cares. They irritate me,...sorry, maybe it was because I raised a boy, not sure, but I don't like them. There, I said it!

What do you buy at the movies?Depends. Ticket (for sure), coffee, use to get "Good n Plenty" but they don't have them anymore (sad), popcorn sometimes...
Do you know how to play poker?

Do you wear your seat belt?Yes, always.

How many meals do you eat a day?
Three, usually (unless I forget to eat lunch), but that doesn't include snacks!

Do you like funny or serious people better?
There is always a time for seriousness, but I LOVE to laugh, so I'm gonna have to lean toward funny.

Ever been to L.A.?
Yes, briefly

Did you eat a cookie today?Not yet.

Do you hate chocolate?
Hello????? WHAT? What kind of freaky, strange, odd-ball questions is that????? I refuse to even answer this question...who writes these things? I mean I thought the Care Bear question was a little odd, but let's not even go there with Chocolate....???????

Are you a gullible person?I use to be when I was younger, but not so much anymore.

Are you easy to get along with?Yes, I believe so.
Ok, there you have it. Do you feel like you know something really important about me now? Feel free to join this little party and tell me all this stuff about you too! :)


  1. love getting to know you better!! You are a hoot just like your bff :)

    gave you an award thankful for our new friendship :)

  2. "Did you ever go to camp as a kid?"

    "Yes. I cried all the way home on the bus because I didn't think I had "enough" fun to warrant my Mom saving up all that money. Silly kid."

    Do you have siblings? If so, I bet you are your mother's favorite! :)

    "What do you buy at the movies?"

    "Depends. Ticket (for sure), coffee, use to get "Good n Plenty" but they don't have them anymore (sad), popcorn sometimes..."

    So you buy depends at the movies in case you laugh so hard that you wet yourself?! LOL

    Just joking, I know what you meant!


  3. That was fun to read!!

    I have the "I Love You Forever" book too, and that always makes me get choked up!!

    LOL @ Olivia Newton John! I know...after seeing her in Grease I thought she was way cool. Remember Xanadu???? LOL

  4. This was fun, I'm glad you played!

    Have to laugh that the farthest place you walked is the kitchen...hehehe!

    I thought the same thing when you said mostly a listener and thought "Not when she and Kim get together" because I've read your blogs, lol!

    Btw, if you have a Winco near you they sell Good & Plenty in the bulk bins.

  5. You must have written this before I came over to answer no to the cookie question! LOL. I'm wanting me some more of those things already!! Stash them girl! Stash them!
    Love you!

  6. I have you agree with you about the care bears. They're so... inane. (Or is that insane? *g*) I have to get offline right now, but I'm going to do this later.

    Hey, my word verification today is songrag. Hmmm... (ó;ò)

    Love ya loads, sweet thang!
    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  7. How fun. I love reading these because it let's us see different sides of people!!

    Have a great weekend

  8. I enjoyed reading all of that! And I have to say that I had the same thought as Larie - You were able to buy Depends at the movies - LOL??

    What was up with the chocolate question? The quiz-writer was obviously not in his or her right mind. :)
