Twenty Weird Questions Answered!

1. What is your favorite thing to snack on while you're blogging?

I don't snack while on the computer, oh, I did have a chocolate coconut milkshake one time.

2. What is one thing you wouldn't want to live without?


3. Beach, Mountains or Farm? Where would you live if you had a choice?

Most definitely a farm on or near the mountains. Currently praying for a move to Kentucky.

4. What's your least favorite chore/household duty?

I really like to clean, my favorite is scouring out the kitchen sink! You have to realize that I feel like I don't get to clean very often, the children do the bulk of it. I just remembered a chore I don't like, putting away my clean clothes!

5. Who do people say you remind them of?

6. Prefer parties and socializing or staying at home with the fam?

Mostly staying home with family, occasionally having other families over. I don't like parties or socializing with lots of people I don't know well. I think for as outspoken and opinionated as I am, I am quite insecure.

7. What's your all time favorite movie?

Steel Magnolias

8. Do you sleep in your make up or remove it like a good girl every night?

I wash my make up off, doesn't everybody?! L y n n e t t e, do you sleep in your make up?

9. Do you have a hidden talent or a deep desire to learn something that you've never had a chance to learn? What is it?

I would love to learn to play the piano. Sitting at the piano, worshiping the Lord, oh that sounds so dreamy. Oh, and I sure wish I could sing well.

10. What's one strange thing you're really good at?

My children pointed out that I am really good at getting hard boogies out of children's noses. I don't look down my nose at others, I look up others' noses. (This from my children;-)

11. What first attracted you to your spouse?

He is very handsome and he really liked me!

12. What is something you love to smell?

Freshly cleaned with Downy clothes and sheets! A baby's head just recently washed with Baby Magic shampoo. Newborn babies! Candles!

13. Tell something about you that you know irritates people.

Come on, are you serious, nobody thinks I am irritating! ;-) (See number 10)

14. When you have extra money (HA!) what's the first thing you think to do with it?


15. Are you a silent laugher or a loud laugher? What makes you laugh the hardest?

An out loud laugher. My dear husband makes me laugh the hardest.

16. Where is your favorite place to shop?

Thrift stores!

17. What's one thing you'd do more often if you had more time?

Read, have more 'quiet time' write our family story and be with my hubby more. (we already do just about everything together, but it never feels like enough)

18. Are you a big spender or frugal?

Probably a big spender with a little frugality thrown in.

19. Who is your favorite character of all time (from a movie or book)? (Can't be real)

Tevye, the father from The Fiddler on the Roof

20. Would you want to be famous?

I don't think so.
Be sure to head over to Lynnette's to join in the party fun!

Oh my word Michelle...We are very close to being the same person ;~)
I also loved the father on Fiddler on the Roof but John or Zeb Walton inched him out.
If we ever get our houses near the mountains we will have to go hiking together

Lynnette Kraft said...

Now that was fun!!! I love Fiddler on the Roof! I was just listening to the soundtrack in the van the other day. You, my friend are just plain fun. I love getting to know strange little details about my friends.

My hubby makes me laugh too. I hope you are feeling better. I think about you often.

I enjoyed reading this! :)

Also, I've just finished my grocery list and am taking your Nourishing Breakfast Challenge...

Hope you have a great week!

natalie said...

So fun! I'm loving this whole blog party thing!!! I love Steel Magnolias and I wish I could sing, as well! Perhaps in my next life (which I don't believe in, but still), God will make me a gospel singer. I can hope, right?

Camille said...

I'm thinking of linking up...but want to be wise with my time this week...hmmmmm...sound familiar?? :)

I enjoyed reading your to get to know you a bit better.


Ellen said...

Fun to read and #10 gave me a good laugh!! :)
I need to add Fiddler to my list of not seen movies...

Camille said...

Oh...and the above comment in NO WAY is meant to imply that anyone who does participate is wasting time...I just have SO MUCH on my plate this week! At this very moment my whole house is asleep (it's just after 8:00 am here) and I am procrastinating!!!!!!!

Just thought i'd clarify!

Michelle said...

Fun list. I feel the same about my husband...he makes me laugh the loudest and there is never enough time with him.

Mindy May said...

I am not fond of putting clean clothes away either. I normally fold them and leave them in the laundry basket. I am trying hard to not do this though.

Jenilee said...

oh putting clean clothes away! that is a good one! and love fiddler on the roof. enjoyed visiting your blog. you have a beautiful family.

Raisingarrows said...

Oh, Michelle, I think I could sit and talk to you all night long!
Loved getting to know you even better!

Hi Michelle,

It's so nice to meet you! I really enjoyed reading your answers.

What a lovely family you have.

I'll be back♥

Betsy Markman said...

Ok, you don't want to move to Kentucky. You want to move to Colorado. Specifically, Northern Colorado, where my home is available to meet your every need for housecleaning pleasure. It would be no sacrifice at all to help you fulfill that desire on my premises. LOL

I wish I had some of that "enjoy housework" gene! Thanks for posting.

"Lolli" said...

Stopped in from Lynnette's party! I'll teach u 2 play the piano if you will teach me how to play the guitar! Do you know how? hehehehe
And, BTW, I'm originally from KY. and proud of it!



September said...

I cannnot believe that I have never "found" your blof before. So cool that Lynnette gives us this oopportunity.
I have been thinking about you a lot after reading about your adrenal fatigue. I too, suffered with this after my 7th.
It seems from reading your blog,t hat we have a lot on common.
I am linking up to be a follower so that we can keep "in touch!"

Desi said...

I am glad that I am not the only 'crazy' one who enjoys house cleaning! lol!

I live under 10 miles from the KY border in Tennessee... you really could not wish for more beautiful country! (Although farming is definitely interesting seeing as the majority of the land here is straight up/down or five acre bottoms! LOL)

Oh- and what a FANTASTIC TALENT!! I'm still chuckling over that one!

Tweeterbird said...

Hi Michelle,

You encouraged me, inspired me and made me laugh.
I'll be back to visit.

Angela said...

Hi! I enjoyed reading your 20 questions. I think it's neat that you like to clean. Isn't it such a good feeling to look around the house and feel good about the way everything looks?!

Have a blessed day!
