A giveaway and a prayer request

Johanna @ An Old Fashioned Girl is hosting a giveaway! She has some great prizes... don't miss it!

Another thing... our family is experiencing the horror (not really) of the flu. So, if y'all could keep us in your prayers it would be much appreciated :).

A tag! A tag!

Hannah @ Hannah's Corner tagged all of her followers (which includes me) so here goes!

Where's your phone right now?

I don't have a phone!

Do you have any plans for the weekend?
Well, we are most defiantly going to clean house on Saturday... but other than that I wouldn't know.

Has someone ever made you a promise and broke it?
Actually, you have that one backwards. I can't count the times that I've said that I'd do something and didn't... yikes!

Last movie/DVD watched?
The BBC version of Ivanhoe... not that great. Does Geometry lessons count instead?

Does anything hurt on your body?
Not at the moment.

How are you?
Doing well!

Are you excited for next year?
I suppose...

Is your room clean?
Welllllll.... my side at least!

How many pillows do you sleep with?
1 really super duper, flat, pancake-ish one that I've had since I was a little kid! I love it.

What are you doing?
Sitting at the computer with Mama.

I bet you miss somebody right now?
Not really.

What are you planning on doing after this?
Cleaning the kitchen.

Have you ever read an entire book in one day?

Who did you push last?
I think that I pushed Sammy's bottom down to make her sit.

Who was the last person you had a deep conversation with?
Living 4 Jesus. Both of us gab our mouths off at each-other.

Do you own any band t-shirts?
No. I'm not one for things like that.

What does your hair look like right now?
It's down with a clip in the top to keep the hair mostly out of my face.

Has anyone ever told you that you were their best friend?

Did you get hurt today?
Thankfully, no.

When was the last time you felt upset?
I don't remember.

What are you looking forward to?
Friday when we go play soccer!

Do you currently want something?
Not that I can think of... but I could think of something really fast if you needed me too.

What was the last thing you had to drink?

Who was the last person you said "i love you" to?
I think that was Mama.

Where are you?
In the back part of our dining room where we put our computers.

Absolutely. Who doesn't?

Do you like looking up at the stars?
Sure... though the only constellation I can find is the Big Dipper.

Do you think you are a nice person?
I suppose.

Do you like swimming?
It is lots of fun! Especially with friends or siblings.

Have you ever swam in the ocean?

Do you go to school?
No. I'm a homeschooler.

Do you want to go to college?
Perhaps. I have defiantly thought about it... but I think that I'll 'cross that bridge' when I get there!

What do you want to be?
Right now, that is a sign language interpreter.

Do you want kids?

Do you like going to the beach?
Well, I've only been to the beach once and the winds were very high. And when the winds are high the sand whips around and stings your legs which isn't pleasant.

Who is the last person you went to the mall with?
I went today! Stephen needed to get his i-Pod Touch (it broke and he got another one for free) from the Apple store over there.

Have you ever had any x-rays?

Who do you hate right now?
The devil and his demons.

Who is the last person you yelled at?
I'm not sure... it might have been one of the dogs.

Who was the last to cook you food?
Mary... she made a cornbread for dinner.

Are you in a complicated relationship?
Ummm.... what is that supposed to mean? Whatever it is the answer is no.

What did you do 2 nights ago?
I went to bed.

Who was the last person you were on the phone with?
That would be Daddy about 5 days ago.

Does a hug make you feel better?

How long ago did you hug someone?

Anything good happening tomorrow?
Not that I can tell.

Do you have unlimited texting?
Actually I don't text... I don't even have the text-er machine

Will you keep your last name when you get married?

You have to get a piercing, what do you get?
Just a regular ear lobe piercing.

Who was the last friend you got into a big argument with?
I think that was Stephen. We don't argue that much but when we do... uh oh. Watch out!

Your phone is ringing. It's the person you fell hardest for, what do you say?
Sorry but I don't know what this question is asking!

Will you be in a relationship in the next couple month?
Uhhhhh... not at my age!

Did you have any unread text messages when you woke up today?


Do you want to see somebody right now?
I guess. I like it when friends drop in unexpectedly!

Do you think two people can last forever?
Absolutely not!

When was the last time you had a late night phone call?
Well, seeing as how no one calls me on the phone except for maybe the dentist....

If you could move somewhere else, would you?
Maybe. We've lived here for 11 years and I sort of like change now and again.

Would you be able to date someone who doesn't make you laugh?
You know, I don't really date and I'm not planning on it any time soon.

Has anyone ever sang to you?
Happy Birthday to you! Every year on my birthday.

When was the last time you bit someone?
Probably when I was a little kid... and I don't even remember!

Do you think you can love someone without trusting them?

Is there someone who you can spend every minute with and be happy?
My family. But even them you do have to have some 'down time'.

Last person to make you smile?
Stephen and L4J.

Have you ever wasted too much time on a certain boy?
Goodness, NO!

How was last night?
I slept, so it was great!

If you're being extremely quiet, what does it mean?
I'm tired, have a bad attitude, need a little alone time, am taking a rest from talking and laughing, or am listening to someone.

Have you ever felt like you hit rock bottom?

Do you have trust issues?

Was this a good weekend?
Last weekend was good!

Were you happy when you woke up today?
I was hunky dory. I was scrambling to get out of bed and downstairs for Bible reading.

I liked that tag! Thank you Hannah! I tag whoever wants to do it.

I love pink...

...especially when it is eatable. Yes, I'm going to share a recipe with you... it's called pink pie. And it is GOOd!!! And it is very simple to make too:


  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin mix
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can cold evaporated milk
  • 1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust


  1. In a medium bowl, mix boiling water, strawberry gelatin, sugar and lemon juice. Stir until dissolved.
  2. In a large bowl, whip evaporated milk with electric mixer until it achieves the consistency of whipped cream. Fold in the strawberry gelatin mixture. Pour into pie shell and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours before serving.

I HaD pictures but I don't know where they went... sorry :(.

On a different note, my brother launched a forum. You can visit it HERE.

An award!

I was awarded this sweet award by Moriah! I've gotten this one before but I never did the tag that comes along with it. For this one you have to list 7 random facts about yourself:

  1. I'm crocheting a bed jacket right now (I don't wear bed jackets... it looked nice enough to wear for daytime ;).
  2. I love painting my nails! (*rolls eyes*)
  3. I exercise by doing T-Tapp (I love it!)
  4. I'm 5'7'' (like Moriah!)
  5. I am the third child in my family
  6. I tripped when I went into the pet store yesterday *laughing*
  7. I have a black and white cat named Tommy (the name isn't very original. Oh well!)
I award this to whoever comments on this post and wants to do the tag/award.

Thanks Moriah! That was fun... see y'all later!
