Blogger Tag and I’m It-Q and A

My friend, Kristin, from A Simply Klassic Home, sent me a sweet letter today asking if I would play a game that’s going around called Blogger Tag.   The game is that she asks me questions about myself, and I answer them.


Uggg….I really have a hard time at stuff like this because it requires me to think to deep within myself.    That’s hard for me.


Anyway, because I really have enjoyed meeting Kristin and think she is a super sweet lady, I decided I could give this a try.


If you choose to read further, thank you.  If you don’t, it’s okay.  Really.


I am showing you me even though I very seldom ever post pictures of me.  I thought maybe it might help you to read about me if you saw me.  (That would be four times I said ME)  Smile

Here are the questions that Kristin asked…


1.  If you could spend the day with your favorite blogger, who would it be and why? What would you do?


Oh my goodness, this is so hard.  You have to understand that I am such a people pleaser and do not like to hurt anyone’s feelings.  I want to make everyone happy, and do you know how hard that is to do?  (anyway, I digress)  Some would say that they want to list everybody.  I say that and mean it.  I want to list everyone that I follow.

Can I give a couple of people of who I would want to spend the day with?  First of all, Becky from Buckets of Burlap, has become like my sister, and I love being with her.  I have actually gotten to spend time with her and we have a blast doing anything and everything together.  The other person that I would love to meet and spend the day with is Debbie from Words on Wheels.  This lady loves the Lord, is an amazing prayer warrior, and a truly funny person.  I would love to sit with her and study the Word.  I think she is probably an amazing Bible teacher.  Okay…one more person, please.  I would also love to spend the day with Becky from Junk to Joy.  Again, a lady who loves the Lord and loves to talk about Him.  She is also amazingly talented so I would love to sit in her craft room and learn from her.

WHEW!!!!  That was hard because I really want to tell you so many more, but I will stop.


2.  What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?


My favorite flavor is homemade vanilla ice cream.  I like vanilla because I can dress it up with different fruits, sauces, etc.  I am pretty simple.


3.  What current decorating/design/clothing trend do you despise?


I will answer about clothing.  I highly dislike low rise pants that so many girls and women wear now.  I do not want to see your underwear or bottom and I sure don’t want my husband or son to see them.  I could preach a sermon on this one, but I will stop with that.


4.  What TV show are you embarrassed to admit that you watch?


Ok, honestly, there are several shows that I watch that do not have the best language.  In our defense,  we do use a language blocker on our television, but it doesn’t always catch all of the bad words.  And if I am being really honest, there are just some shows that are funnier if you have some of those choice words.  For example, I LOVE Tyler Perry’s movies and his tv shows.  I’m sorry, but when you take out the bad words, it’s just not as funny.  (how terrible do you think I am now)   DISCLAIMER…we have a few words that we WILL NOT listen to and if they come on, we will change the show. 


5.  Who or what inspired you to start blogging?


I have  a precious friend who began a family blog and encouraged me to do the same.  I first started blogging on a different blog that was just family stuff.  Soon there after, I began my home blog and was hooked!  What friends I have made on here and what things I have learned.


6.  What quote/saying do you aim to live by?


I don’t know that I have a quote or saying necessarily that I live by.  I do have favorite scriptures that I turn to and try to focus on.    I have also tried to focus on the word “devoted” over the last few years.  I am first and foremost devoted to God and then my family.


7.  What do you think of Pinterest? (this may be a loaded question right now...)


I really don’t get on Pinterest very often.  I enjoy it when I do, but I just don’t have the time.  I spend waaay too much time as it is on my blog and my etsy shop so I try to stay away from Pinterest unless I really have a reason.  (my teenage daughter loves it)


8.  What's your favorite sandwich?


I love grilled cheese sandwiches on homemade bread.  I like to use different kinds of cheeses and then add a few pickles.  Remember, I told you that I am simple.


9. What is your guilty pleasure?


I have a diet Dr. Pepper each and every day.  It has to be in a bottle and needs to be really cold.  I am probably a diet Dr. Pepper addict.  I know they are not good for you, but I just gotta have it.  Add a York Peppermint Patty, and I am one happy women.


10.  What is the worst gift you've ever received?


Honestly, I don’t think there is a worst gift.  I have had a few that were not great, but I really don’t want to say what they were in case the giver of that gift reads this post.  Smile  My daughter reminded me that I got big old granny panties for my 40th birthday that were pretty awful.


11.  Do you have a favorite quote from a movie?


Frankly, my dear…NO, JUST JOKING, but I had to say that.   It would have to be from The Help.  “You is smart, You is kind, You is important”.  Oh, how that made me cry.  That is my heart.  That’s what I want to tell everyone I am around.    I want them to know how wonderful, precious, and worthy they are.  I love that part of the movie.


There you have it. 


Are you still with me?


Did you really read all of that?


I probably wrote way too much, but when I start, I just can’t stop on some things.


I would love for you to share a comment on something that I wrote.  Or, ask me a question if you have one.  Now that I have answered those questions, why not just go ahead and answer some more, right?


Thanks, Kristin, for wanting to get to know me a little better.  I sure enjoyed getting to know you better.


God bless you my friends.


All Done…

Ames- I think this is my favorite post you have ever written because it is so true and real...and so YOU! If you get the chance (and I know how busy you are) pop by today's post and read what SweetCheeks had to say about herself. I think you have that same quality! xo Diana

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

I enjoyed reading the whole thing Amy. I agree with so much of what you said...although my pop is Pepsi and my candy M&Ms!

Elizabeth said...

I read all of it and enjoyed getting to know you better. I think we are a kindred spirit!

Thanks for sharing! I enjoyed reading and getting to know you a bit better.

Faded Plains said...

So great to get to know you a bit more...have a great weekend!

Kristin said...

Loved seeing a good pic of you!! :) and love reading more about you and getting to know you better.

Sometimes the simplest of things give the most pleasure - like a grilled cheese sandwich with pickles - yum!!! Peppermint patties remind me of my dad (they were his favorite), so that really made me smile. :)

Thanks for playing along! said...

OK...I don't comment a ton but i love your blog and I have to say it WAS WONDERFUL to see your face! It added such a personal effect! I would love to see more of you in your pics if even "decorating" your hands or something! Ha! sounds kinda weird but anyway....I am also going to check out those two blogs you talked about! :) HUGS~ said...

It was fun to read your answers, since I got the same questions! I feel the same way about low-rise jeans!

Debbie said...

Well, first, you made me cry. You really did, Amy. And I have to say that I have often listed you as someone I would like to meet. (But I'm a package deal. My mother and sister list you as one they would want to meet too!)

I really did enjoy this post. I feel as if I got to know you better and realized how much we're alike! I do have to say that I am an A&W root beer gal instead, though.

And I like my homemade vanilla right inside of it.

And WOW the picture!! You are as lovely on the outside as on the inside.

Robin said...

Yes, Amy. I read it all. :-)

Thank you for sharing! It is hard to answer some of those questions.

LOVE I know you a tad bit better:)...and I am with you on girl's pants these days...just who decided that they were the thing anyway...and besides they're not even flattering even if they weren't immodest. Anyways...I did really like reading this post!
Have a great weekend!

Shanon at Vintage Sparkle Chic said...

I loved reading this, you gorgeous lady! Loved your photo!
I do not know how anyone can like DR Pepper, it's just disgusting to me, like medicine. But when someone loves it, they LOVE it!
I love The Help and I LOVE it when she says the...."you is...." line. Tear jerker!
Loved learning about you, you are such a sweet soul inside and out!


Heaven's Walk said...

What a blessing you are to the blogging community, Amy! You are so loved by us all...simply by being the caring, loving, fun-loving Christian sister you are! Thank you for sharing a bit more of what makes you tick! :) You are truly a gem!

Hey Sweet Friend!

You are a joy and are so genuine like Becky says!

One of these days, gal...we'll get some time! Either here or in Glory with our Lord!! Either will be fabulous!!

Thanks for being wonderful you, and giving so much to so many!

And ditto, ditto, ditto on the pants thing, though I might add that nothing should be spilling out of our clothing!!

Love n hugs,
