Blogiversary Q&A- Round 1

Let's get these questions going…

Melissa asked:

I don't know if you've answered this before but how old are you?:O)

I'm 27, going on 28 this December. I'm in denial that the big 3-0 is looming on the horizon.

Do you have any favorite t.v shows?

I was so tempted to not even answer this question, but I promised I would answer anything, so here goes. I'm embarrassed to say that I somewhat enjoy watching Lost .

We're actually not a tv kind of family at all, and haven't had cable for the bulk of our marriage, though we ended up getting it by accident this year so that our tenant could have it. We still don't really watch it, but we got started on Lost a year and a half ago, when Ryan had his surgery before his chemo treatments. He was in a lot of pain and couldn't really move much, and he found it difficult to focus on reading, so he wanted something more mindless. A friend recommended Lost, and we rented the first season, and got a bit hooked.  Mindless entertainment, it most certainly is!

What is your favorite blog?

Gosh, I don't think I could narrow it down to one! When I have time, I really enjoy GirlTalk, Biblical Womanhood, The Nourishing Gourmet, Amy's Humble Musings, Passionate Homemaking, Tammy's Recipes, Heavenly Homemakers, Frugal Granola, Preschoolers and Peace, and so many others. My bloglines is rather, um, full. 🙂 Unfortunately, I don't have nearly enough time to read all of the great blogs that are out there!

Donielle asked:

What's your favorite color?

Blue… or maybe pink… but probably blue. Yup, I'm pretty sure blue is my favorite. Did I mention I also like pink? But only for certain things (clothes, things for my daughter, flowers, my iPod Nano), and not things like furniture or decor, cars, walls, etc.

Do you ever say "Eh" (you know "ayy") since you live in Canada? 🙂

If you ask me, I would say nope, I don't say "eh". However, my husband informs me that I do, indeed, partake in this Canadian phenomenon. Most Americans who meet me say that I don't really sound Canadian to them, but I have a feeling that it occasionally (very occasionally, mind you!) enters my vocabulary. I prefer to say "hey", as in, "Ohh, that looks really yummy, hey?" Similar, yet not quite as stereotypical. 🙂

If you could vacation anywhere, where would you go?

Where wouldn't I go? Ever since I began travelling when I married my husband (first living in Japan, then Italy and Scotland, then Florida and Georgia, and most recently Arizona), I've totally been bit by the travel bug. We dream of taking our children so many places one day (you know, homeschool on the road!)… Turkey and Greece, Africa (anywhere, really, or more accurately, everywhere!), Panama, back to the UK, New Zealand, Israel… you name it, we want to go there!

For me, the more history, unique culture and/or interesting landscapes (like the Grand Canyon, for example), the better. I'm not so much into vacationing just to vacation. I want to travel to experience things, to have my horizons broadened, to learn, to see, to do… beaches and cruises don't do much for me.

Lots more questions and answers to come! This is fun for me, and a nice change from the usual stuff I write about!

  1. I find it interesting that you will be 28 in December – so will I, on the 5th! But what’s even more interesting is that I think, based on your post for Caden’s birthday back in May, that his birthday falls the day before my second child’s birthday – my son’s birthday is May 26, except he’s a year older than Caden! So, now I’m thinking that it would be hilarious if your daughter’s birthday were close to my oldest’s on January 12….

    I know, I’m strange!!

  2. We’re not really TV watchers either, but like you we recently started watching LOST. It got our attention when we learned that the grandson of a man in our church plays on the show. His character (Sawyer) is a bit disturbing at times, though. Thanks for sharing a little more about yourself and your family.

  3. I think it’s fun that your blog-o-versary is right before mine (which is Nov. 1)! I guess we were thinking about and doing similar things this time last year!!!

  4. Hello my name is Danielle Spence. I live in Surprise, Az ( a suburb of Phoenix) I am by no means a blogger and just recently got turned onto your blog by my mom. You have a lot of great info and I really enjoy your take on organic foods. I have learned a lot. I have been married for almost 10yrs and have a daughter Alyssa who is 8. We own a landscaping business that has provided a way for me to stay home and homeschool my daughter and also my neice who is 11 while my sister and her husband works. I just love serving the Lord anyway I can and we spend a lot of time at church or with family/friends. Congrats on your 1yr anniversary of your blog I pray for an amazing 2nd year and look forward to reading all you have to say.
    Yours faithfully in Christ,
    Danielle Spence

  5. THanks for answering my t.v question.;o) 30 is really not that bad. I just turned 30 myself and I realized it’s just a number. As long as you continue to care for yourself the way you do you will always feel young. And haven’t you heard? 30 is the new 20!!

  6. One more quick question: Have you ever read Body By God by Dr. Ben Lerner? It’s amazing. He touches on many of the things you talk about and puts a biblical spin on it. My husband and I are going through the book and it’s really changing our perspective on a lot of things.

  7. Laura, that is strange! 🙂 But sorry, my daughter’s birthday is Nov.21, so the similarities end there!

    Thanks for introducing yourself, Danielle.

    Melissa, I love that 30 is the new 20! LOL! And no, I’ve never even heard of that book, but I’ll have to look into it.

    Jenn, of course I want to visit New Zealand- it does look beautiful!

  8. Oh please, Steph. You so totally say “eh” and you are so Canadian. And Canadians are so loveable, so embrace it! Could I be overusing “so”? 🙂

  9. Really, Ange? I say it often enough that you’ve noticed? Sigh… 🙂 I really don’t mind, actually. I love being Canadian. And I love the word “so”, and overuse it myself, so nope, you’re not!
