Five Question Friday

I haven't participated in Five Question Friday in forever so I thought I would start up again.

1.  What's the last thing you bought for yourself?  Besides groceries, I guess the last thing I bought for myselft was a new purse while we were in Dallas last weekend.  I love Sam Moon's and couldn't pass up the chance to pick something up while we were there.  I'm so glad I did, too.  I do love it so!

2.  What is your favorite meal on a cold winter day?  I love anything that comes out of the crock pot on a cold winter day.  I know it will always be hot!  I love cooking in the crock pot on snow days because of the wonder smells all day.  I am becoming quite addicted to my crock pot.  It even has it's own board on Pinterest.

3.  Have you started looking at swimsuits this year, and do you typically buy a new one each year?  No to both of those questions.  Swimsuit shopping has to be about the worst experience ever.  I don't actually go to stores to shop.  I usually shop online and pray that it fits.  If not, I will return it.  I can't bring myself to actually go to a store and try on a swimsuit.  So if I finally find one that isn't too horrendous I will wear it until it fades or wears out.  My last three have come from Lands End.  They seem to be well made and modest enough I am not overly embarassed to wear them.  Since they are well made, they don't have to be replaced every year, which is a real bonus for me and cuts down on the swimsuit shopping experience.

4.  If you could be any candy what would you be and why?  I would be Dove chocolate.  First, everyone loves chocolate so therefore they would love me.  Second, that is some smooth chocolate.  I would love to be smooth.  I am awkward and clumsy and would never be called smooth.  A girl can dream can't she?

5.  What are you most passionate about?  My family and my faith.  I love my family more than anything.  I wish I could spend all day everyday with them.  Well, probably not because we wouldd drive each other crazy and I'm introverted so I do cherish my alone time.  While I treasure my job nothing beats time off when we get to travel and explore and see what the world has to offer. 

I am also working on my faith.  While I have always been a believe I am trying harder to live and be active in my faith.  I don't want to be a passive Christian.  When we have children, I want them know that mommy and daddy are passionate about living for Christ.  I never want them to question that.

Bonus Question: What is your favorite thing to "pin" on Pinterest?  Definitely recipes.  I have three separate boards for recipes.  One is for general recipes, one is for crock pot recipes, and one is for sweets and desserts.  I have even tried some and they have all turned out delicious.  Everything else I pin just kind of sits there because I'm not too crafty.  Maybe that will change one day.


  1. I enjoyed reading this post.
    I found your blog thru

    Your blog is so pretty!

  2. I am so with you on the swimsuits. I know I'd get one I liked better if I'd just go try them on - but I can't. Consequently ALL of mine are old and faded!

  3. I'd be a Dove Promise! They have interesting little quotes on them! ha!

  4. Oh my...I must check out your recipes! I need some good crock pot ones...I can ruin chicken in a crock pot!! It's very frustrating!

    I think I would be a Kit Kat. :)
