The Random Dozen is Back!

Linda at 2nd cup has brought the random back!! And it is perfect for me today as it seems my weeks before school starts are getting busier and busier. Take a look at my answers and then head over to Linda's to see everyone else's!!!

1. When was the last time you laughed until you cried? While I was with my mom, going through all her old photographs. We were so tired by the end, but we got tickled over one of the pictures and laughed till we were both crying!

2. If you found $10 today, what would you do with it? take someone out to lunch!

3. Do you volunteer anywhere? I volunteer with 3 other ladies to run our children's sunday school program at church. I also volunteer at my boy's school on the hospitality committee and for the band.

4. What is your favorite summertime veggie or fruit, and how do you eat it? I can't pick a favorite!!! I love all summer time veggies and fruits!! Okay, if I had to pick one it would be peaches or blueberries....see, I can't!

5. Is your social sphere (circle of friends) small, medium or large? large.

6. When was the last time you attended a family or school reunion? How did that go?The last school reunion was my 10th (over 20 years ago) and it was a blast. My last family reunion was this summer when my family all went on a cruise together....tons of fun!!

7. When you're feeling blue, what is the best way someone can cheer you up? take me out to lunch or coffee....basically spend time with me and get me out of the house!

8. Have you taken a vacation this summer? yes, two. One with my family (#6) and then my husband and I went to IN to visit all our friends for a week on the lake!!

9. What is the most unnecessary item you carry with you all the time? the fat around my belly!!

10. What is the best summer flick you have seen so far? Inception.

11. Describe a perfect summer day. let me show you....

It would end with grilling dinner and then family time in the pool or a family game around the table!!

12. Please a share a favorite photo from the summer so far! This was VERY hard.....so many to choose from!!! but I came up with two.....

This picture just makes me smile!
I love the colors and it brings back great memories of a wonderful trip!

This picture makes me shake my head and smile!
This is my mom (good southern baptist girl that she is) dancing at family disco night on the cruise....
....and loving it!!!
What a blast we had that night and what fun watching my parents cut loose!!

Now head over to Linda's and check out some of the other Random Dozen's!!!

Great answers! I especially love the picture of your mom dancing - joyful, not sinful LOL.

I was apparently feeling too dark for the random this week (wrote a poem about my mom) - we'll see what next week holds.

I love your favorite pics of the summer! Your mom looks like she is having a blast!!!

I love peaches and blueberries, but I went with peaches on my answer to the dozen, it really was hard to pick just one!!

So glad the random dozen is back!!

Joyce said...

It's fun to be back in the random! I should have said what you did for #9 : )

Great pictures too!

Thena said...

Inception haven't seen that one. Mostly just seen kids movies this summer.

Patrice said...

We thought alike on #9!! :o)

Mocha with Linda said...

I knew I'd love your answers. Love all the blues in that top photo!

And why oh why didn't I think about weight for #9?!

Your blog is quite impressive. I am fairly new to blogging. I have just received two blog awards I am suppose to pass on. I know this nothing like being voted the top 100 Christian Women's blog, but I would like for your blog to one of the seven that I humbly pass these awards on to. You can find them at:

Jewel said...

Awesome summer pictures! Number 9.. hahaha. Yes! I'm so excited the Random Dozen is back!! :)

Angie said...

Loved your answers!

How hard was # 4!! I had three answers. Couldn't choose.

# 9 is the best answer I've read yet. Wish I would've thought of it.

Love # 11! Great pic.

Your mom is so cute. I have my non-dancing mom taking a hip hop family class on our vacation last fall. Good memories.

Fun answers!

Bina said...

I loved your fruit/veggie answer. Made me smile :)

Cathy said...

Great answers and pictures Sara! Love the one of your mom!

Mimi said...

I adore the pic of your mom dancing & am terribly jealous of your pool!

2nd Cup of Coffee said...

Oh, Sara, there is no blog quite like yours. It just has the stamp of you on it. Beautiful photos for one thing. I love that you shared about laughing at old pics; I do the same. Thanks for playing this week!

I don't think I could buy lunch for 2 with $10 here! Maybe ingredients though and cook for them!
