I Have Been TAGGED ...


Well a few of my blogging sisters have tagged me, so here it goes ... 7 Random Facts about me ...

1. I am currently obsessed w/ buying holiday gifts, birthday gifts, or appreciation gifts from families trying to adopt or t-shirts that support the starving children in Africa ...

Here is where my latest $5.00 is going ... Raffle (click and see this beautiful handmade afghan) ...Help this family bring home their son from Haiti ... I know we can all pitch in $5.00 ... The support we give each other really is priceless ...

2. If I could afford it I would go to COLD STONE ICE CREAMERY on a daily basis and get the FOUNDERS FAVORITE ... sweet cream ice cream, brownie, hot fudge, carmel, and heath bar all mixed to perfection ... can you taste it ???

3. I love love love to watch BIGGEST LOSER ... I want to be Jillian ... I would love to scream at people and get paid for it ... plus losing weight would be super fun ...

4. I am always sad when flip flop season ends ... I don't mind the new colder weather, but when I can' wear my flip flops I get a little sad ... BEST BRANDS .. Reefs, J Crew, and Rainbows

5. Katie (my new 19 year old angel) has really changed my daily life ... I love talking w/ her each day and planing on how we are going to change the world ... She reminds me that Christ didn't look at the world and give up, but He went to cross because we are worth it ... 143 million orphans around the world are worth it ... the nearly 45,000 dieing of starvation daily are worth it ... Thanks Katie for jumping into my life ... (Baptizing in the River ... feel the tears coming?)




6. Most days I do nothing more than brush my teeth, take a shower (this is an iffy one on some days) and put some lip gloss on, plus I keep my hair long so I can put it in a ponytail or a messy bun ... Not for fashion, but for function ... lol

7. I have chap stick hidden all over the house ... I have multiple ones in my purse ... I CAN'T STAND FOR MY LIPS TO BE DRY ... Favorite is BURTS BEE ...


ALLY KAT UPDATE ... Please continue to pray for this sweet angel ... She will have been w/ us 2 weeks tomorrow .... She may have a family by next week ...It is hard to describe loving on a sweet baby that currently only belongs to Jesus ... I am loving this new job Jesus has given me ...I think our family is learning a lot about the Father through this ...

I pray someone is loving on my A/J in Ethiopia just as much ... Hope you all have a fabulous week ...

21 kind words.:

Love your list. I'm trying to grow my hair back longer so I can put it in a pony tail! I can't stand not being able to do that.

I'm a flip flop girl too.

Is Ally Kat still crying as much as she had been? I hope not.

I am so with ya on the lip balm front! I have tubes of Soft Lips in every nook! From my purse to my nightstand to my makeup drawer to my tote bag to my kitchen and beyond. I think it is a habit I developed while living in Northern Virginia (dryer climate)...and now, 23 years later and living in South Florida, I can't be without something on my lips! :-)

jennifer said...

Hey girl, I know you have lots of extra time these days ;), so when you get a chance, head over to my place. I gave you an award.

How is Rhonda doing?

loved these answers! you are honestly so beautiful in every pic yoiu post you don't need anything but lipgloss.
I am reading a book right now... Heavenly Man about Brother Yun one of the leaders in the underground Chinese church, it is giving me such a hunger to do more for the KINDGDOM, so I understand how you are feeling...
oh I will be praying little Aly's family loves her and loves Jesus and that there hearts are knit together...

Rebecca V. said...

Just finished reading Katie's blog, thank you for the recommendation. I'd love to meet her. I'm going to be praying and talking to my husband about how we can help. Hope all is well with you and the kiddos, and your husband, of course! If you ever need a "long shower" break or just a minute to yourself, call me and I'll come watch the kids for you!
