Random Dozen

Joining Linda at 2nd cup for her Random Dozen today.

I will be flying most of the destination is Tucson, AZ and my hometown!!! I can't wait to see my parents and hang out with my family and of course have an Eegee's!!!

Here goes:

1. Tell me the absolute best way to watch a movie. at home, with a big bowl of homemade popcorn (butter and Parmesan cheese on top), lights off and the whole family there!!!

2. Do you ever think about your own funeral? If so, do you have specific ideas about how you would like it to be? The only thing I have thought about is that I want it to be a celebration...because I will be HOME!!!

3. Are you more of a giver or a taker? I am mostly a giver, but there are times I am a taker. I have learned over the years that I keep others from the joy of serving when I don't allow them to give to me too.

4. Vacations: planned activities and schedules, or play it by ear? depends on where we are, but I am a play it by ear kind of girl!

5. What is one often overlooked item in your home that needs to be cleaned regularly? my bathroom. no one sees it but me and my husband and so it is the first thing to go when I am busy...and no, it doesn't bother me.

6. Name a cause that means a lot to you. first and foremost, the cause of Christ and any organization that brings the good news to the lost.

7. Do you eat a regular old peanut butter jelly sandwich, or do you customize it? And by the way, jelly or no jelly? I love PG&J. that is what I am packing to take on the plane today. But I also LOVE PB&B....bananas!!!

8. If we were having a conversation in person, how would I know if you were nervous? I tend to talk very fast when I am nervous.

9. Do you have an elaborate bedtime routine, or just the basics of toothbrushing and jammies? seriously..this is me.......just the basics!!!!

10. Have you ever regretted something you wrote on your blog? yes and I deleted it. It is hard when you are in the ministry to be as transparent as you would like.

11. Has anyone ever told you that you look like a famous person or celebrity? Did you agree? yes, I once was told I looked like Tyne Daly (you younguns' might not know who she is!) and no I didn't agree. I mean we both have brown hair....that's as close as I could see.

12. If you were going to dedicate a song to a loved one or friend, what would the song be and to whom would it be dedicated? I am so bad at names of songs. I don't think I would ever dedicate a song to a loved one.......maybe a recipe? :)

Happy Wednesday!!!

I am so with you on #12. Have you ever eaten at Rigo's. It's my fav place to eat when I'm in Tucson. Have a great time. Blessings, SusanD

Have a wonderful trip and enjoy your time with family.

Jamie @ Six Bricks High said...

Dedicate a recipe rather than a song...too funny!

Wishing you a turbulent free flight. Have a wonderful trip!

Ohilda said...

Have an awesome trip! I love these Q & A, because I keep learning new stuff about you! :)

Kim said...

We had the same answer for quite a few of the questions :-) Have never had popcorn with parmesan but am putting that on my list of things to try.

Have a wonderful trip! We'll be going to Arizona next furlough since we have a supporting church in Phoenix now. I've never been so look forward to it! You can tell me all the things we need to do and places we should go :-) I definitely want to visit Bisbee, way down in the south, because there's a series of books set there (the Joanna Brady series by J.A.Jance).

SouthLakesMom said...

#10 -- So give, what recipe?

I like your answer to #3 -- I've had to learn that as well. Learning to receive is a tough go sometimes!

Hope your trip is full of joy!

My bathroom is the same way! It's always last on the list.

And then when my MIL comes to visit, she sneaks in there and cleans it while I'm at work, then makes comments about how much she loves helping us out because we just can't seem to get around to it.

*frustrated sigh*

Jill said...

Happy Wednesday to you too!

Growin' with it! said...

i really like what you said about being a giver/taker. so true!

Enjoyed your list here. Have a wonderful visit in AZ. My cousin tells me it is hot there. I'm freezing here in MI today.

H-Mama said...

bathroom (especially master) is last on my list too. ;)

TCKK said...

Love your answers to this. I really like these kinds of post because I feel like I really get to starting knowing you. Don't worry, I promise I won't stalk you! ;-)

Mocha with Linda said...

Your answers are always so fun!

Have a great time with your folks!

quilly said...

Enjoy your homecoming! I know how precious that can be.

Have you seen photographs of Tyne Daily when she was young? I do see a bit of resemblance -- but only a bit.

And you just made me remember a favorite childhood snack -- take one graham cracker, spread with peanut butter, add banana slices and drizzle lightly with Hershey's Syrup! Yum.

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

Hope you had a great flight! Wi-fi on the plane, huh? That would have been REALLY helpful on the TWELVE HOUR FLIGHT to Hawaii last summer!!!

OH well.

I like your answer to #3.
I like your conclusion to #5.
I LOVE your answer to #6. Good one!
And last but not least, WHAT is a PG&J??? I feel like I should know what that is, but I just...can't...think......

Deven said...

Chel - Might be just a typo... B and G are next to each other.

Amen on the bathroom, sister.

Rach@In His Hands said...

Mmmm, LOVE peanut butter and bananas. Now I'm hungry!!!!!

2nd Cup of Coffee said...

Parmesan. You have style.

No to Tyne. No. No.

Thanks for participating! Sorry it took me so long get around.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

So glad somebody else besides me isn't too bothered by a not-so-clean bathroom. That is ALWAYS the last thing on my list.

I know who Tyne is - but I never woulda thought she looks like you. Ha!

Reading everybody's different answers about PB&J is totally making me hungry for one. Probably doesn't help that I haven't had breakfast yet, I guess.

Just read that you're on a trip - have a blast, girl!
