Sunday Link-up

Today I'm linking up with
Fun and random about me:

1. Have you ever licked the back of a CD to try to get it to work?
Nope.  Didn't even know that was a trick.  I just wipe them on my shirt or blow on them.

2. What’s the largest age difference between yourself and someone you’ve dated?
2.5 years.  But I've only dated one man (who just so happens to be my husband :))

3. Ever been in a car wreck?
Yes and it was terrifying, though I was pretty much unhurt.  Destroyed my car, though.

4. Were you popular in high school?
Hahaha that's funny.  No way.  I was a total 'freak' in jr. high, then had lots of friends in high school, but was certainly still 'uncool.'  By college everyone had his or her own niche, but I've never really been the 'popular' type.

5. Have you ever been on a blind date?
Nope - only dated one man and I knew him for 3 years before we started dating.

6. Are looks important?
I believe you should do the best you can with what you've been blessed with

7. Do you have any friends that you’ve known for 10 years or more?
Quite a few.  Everyone I knew before I moved to the town I'm in now.

8. By what age would you like to be married?
I was married at 22.

9. Have you ever made a mistake?
Of course.  I make many every day.  Most people do.

10. Are you a good tipper?
Depends on the service

11. What’s the most you have spent for a haircut?
Not sure - quite a lot - $40+ for a cut, style and blow-out

12. Have you ever had a crush on a teacher?
No, but I had a crush on a doctor once

13. What song do you want played at your funeral?
How Great Thou Art - which was also played at my wedding :)

14. What would your last meal be before getting executed?
Wow - um, it would depend on my mood that day, but probably something involving cheese and chocolate.  If I could even bring myself to eat.

15. Beatles or Stones?
Beatles.  No contest.

16. Beer, wine or hard liquor?
I don't drink.  And if I did, wine is the most gluten-free I guess (I cook with it)

17. Do you have any phobias?
Heights.  Like really bad.  I get shaky if I'm more than 4-5 feet off the ground.

18. What are your plans for the future?
At the moment, we're hoping to build a house and send all our kids to private school.  Those are my main goals for now.  Otherwise, just try to recognize my blessings every day and do as much good as I can with the time I've got here on earth :)
 
 
Today, I thought it would be fun to link up with
so you could learn a little about the writer of this blog.  Here are this week's questions:


This Weeks Questions:
1. What cell phone do you have?
It's an LG Cosmos Touch.  No, it's not a smartphone so I can't install those fun little apps.  And no, I will never ever get used to the touch-screen thing.  Sorry for all of you whom I've pockt-dialed.
2. What is your area code?
It's a KS #, let's just leave it at that :)
3. What is one word you are uncomfortable with saying and/or hearing?
Unless it's referring to a cake (and even then, really), I just don't like the word 'moist' - it irritates me.
4. What is the time and temperature of where you are at right now?
Um - 1:26 (or so) and too-stinkin'-cold (esp with these KS winds!)
5. First word that comes to mind when you hear the word “Winter”.
Snow
6. Do you plan your meals or just eat whatever, whenever?
Oh I plan!  I'm even in the process of making myself a really pretty painted wall decoration with a verse on it, then a white-board grid where I can write out each meal for each day of the week and that day's chores.  I am SO excited.  That's not to say I don't still mix it up and sub in and out a bit, but I need to know what I'm cooking so I know how to shop - and when I'm really having a good week, I'll plan meals around what's on sale at the store (or what's in the freezer).  Otherwise, I spend way too much money (and too many calories) on Panda Express :p
7. What was one movie you saw recently where everyone said it was good but you thought otherwise?
Wow, I'm really not sure.  We don't watch very many movies, really.  We're mostly a 'watch some ancient tv show on Netflix while we work out at night' kinda couple.
8. Three words that would describe your mood today?
Tired.  Grateful.  Busy!
9. What room of the house do you usually use your computer in?
We keep the laptop on a shelf next to the kitchen most of the time - we have a very open floorplan so it's super accessible there.  I tend to bring it down to our bedroom at night, though, so I can wake up slowly while checking my email in the morning.
10. Name one thing on your mind right now.
Just one?  I'm currently rattling off the long list of other things I need to be doing during naptime (emails, laundry, working out, making some jewelry for the shop, cleaning something, thawing chicken, coming up with an afternoon craft for the kids) in my head while I type :S

And on that note - I'm off!
