Random Dozen - May 26, 2010

Have you ever wondered ...

1. Would you rather host party or simply attend a party?

Attend!  I'm need to work on my hospitality skilz ...

2. Tell us about the most memorable party you've been to.

Hmm... the last party I attended, I managed to trip over a room divider (?) and fell slow-motion from the dining room into the living room.  Quite a feat, actually ... That's really the only thing that stands out in my mind about parties, which proves I'm not a party girl.

3. What is one thing you hope for in the after-life?

I believe that I will experience communion with my Lord, reunion with relatives who have lived for God, peace, neverending joy, and a beautiful dwelling place.  I also hope for the ability to eat whatever I want and remain the perfect size!

4. What do you enjoy most about sunshine?

I love light, and sunshine just invigorates me and motivates me to do something!

5. When you attend a bridal/baby shower, do you prefer to bring your own gift or chip in with others to buy a larger gift?

I always bring my own gift.

6. Would you rather have a FREE week of having your house cleaned or all of your meals cooked for you and your family?

This is a toughie, but if I had to choose, I would like to have all my meals cooked for me and my family. I would also like to have whoever cooked those meals to clean up after themselves!

7. What song describes your mood today?

"Something Good is Going to Happen To You" - I'm in a mood of expectancy.

8. What is something you received for your own bridal shower/wedding that you still own or use? (If you are not married, feel free to sub a gift you received a long time ago.)

I still have several kitchen items that I received 34 years ago that I still use:  tupperware canisters, rolling pin, hand held can opener, a set of Corelle dishes.

9. Your favorite flavor of ice cream is?

Mint chocolate chip

10. When was the last time you felt "tested?"

October 2009 through January 2010 (Those in leadership with me at my church know why those dates are significant.)

11. "[Fill in the blank] is a food that once I start eating I find really hard to stop."

M & M's

12. "-----" is the best motivation.

Desperation is the best motivation.  Sometimes it is a blessing to feel desperate because then you care enough to get something done!

It would be memorable with a fall!
Like your answer to #6 having the cook clean up after herself! I forgot to put this down on my post, I still have an emerald green blender :) I have always liked mint choc. chip, Ben & Jerry's has a mint choc. chip cookie that is pretty good.

Now that you mention it I still have the rolling pin that I got for a shower gift. It's in awesome shape too. Hasn't seen the light of day too often. LOL.

M&M's. I probably could have added those to my list too.

I have fallen (in public) more times than I care to count! An audience just seems to increase the chances of me falling!

Karen said...

Girl...I am all about parents tell me when I was very young, I would do anything and go to anyone that offered an M&M...

I enjoyed all your answers....

34 year old corelle? You must have one of the original sets. I love that stuff! Thanks for visiting my Random Dozen!

We still have the toaster that my In-laws received when they got married 57 years ago. The cord is scary.

I have also fallen at a party and was really bummed that I wasn't drunk. I wouldn't have felt so stupid then. LOL

Hi Jerri,
I love, love your banner picture, but I always like yours.
I can vivdly remember my mother saying I have had (whatever particular kitchen item she was talking about) for 22 years. I think those same words about stuff in my kitchen and wonder where that time went.
Testing is happening in out church leadership right now and it is so hard to watch...prayer is so important.
M&M' I type, yum!

Thanks Jerri,
I vote for the freezing, great idea. Do you think we would appreciate the blessing at the 22 mark if we didn't go through the fire?
I often think the comment about grandchildren before children would not be true without the walk through parenting children.
Have lovely holiday weekend. I am looking forward to a nap on Monday!
