Tagged For Seven

Rachel tagged me in this question/answer post! Basically I have to answer seven questions, then tag seven people to answer seven new questions of my own. Then is I tag you you have to answer my questions, then tag seven people and ask seven new questions . . . you get the idea.

I haven't done anything like this for a while, so I thought it's be fun to participate. So here we go:

1) What is your favorite part of your day?

Hmm, that's a hard one. It depends greatly on the day, but I'd say I really enjoy cooking a good dinner and then having Derek walk through the door with good scents coming from the kitchen. Obviously that doesn't happen every day, but those are some of the times when I feel the most content.

2) What is your favorite meal?

Oh, definitely my mom's lasagna, with Ceasar salad and garlic bread. Mmm!

3) What is your morning routine?

Let's see, wake up, brush my teeth, wash my face, put in my contacts, fix my hair and makeup. Let the dogs out, make the bed, get dressed, eat breakfast, blog for a little bit.

Those are on the days that I stay home. Work days I leave at 5:30 in the morning, so I wake up, do all my bathroom routine, pack a lunch, make breakfast to go, then head out the door.

I used to also do my quiet time/devotions in the morning, but lately I've been doing that at night instead, just because it seems to work better right now.

4) If you could go anywhere on a vacation, where would you go?

Italy! Derek and I have been wanting to go to Italy for a while - we were going to try for this year, but we just couldn't save enough. So we did the cruise instead, which was lovely, and now we're going to save for 5-10 years for our dream Italy vacation. Probably an anniversary trip/second honeymoon kind of thing. We'd want to see Rome, Venice, and the Tuscany wine country for sure.

5) If you could do any home improvement to your house without money being a problem, what would you do?

Well, let's see, we're already finishing the basement or I might have said that. I tend to dream big, so I'd have to say we'd add on to our house. We'd add a garage, with a master bedroom above the garage. My parent's did that to their house, and I think our's has the same potential.

6) Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Hopefully a stay-at-home mom to three or four sweet children! I hope to be homeschooling my kids. We may or may not be in the same house, just depending on whether we decide we want to/can afford to upgrade at that point. But we really wouldn't need to, because we could make our house work with four kiddies, I think. I hope our mortgage is paid down significantly, and we are still debt-free except for the mortgage. Derek will be in a job that he loves. Our marriage will be even stronger, and Derek and I will still be learning about each other and growing closer together every day. I hope to be in good physical shape still, and of course I'll be blogging! That's my 10 year ideal.

7) Do you have a hobby?

I suppose my main hobby would be blogging, but I also love reading a good book, and I like to knit in the fall and winter!

8) Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging as a way to keep a record of the things the Lord has taught me. That eventually morphed into also including records of our life together, and other posts on my opinions, likes, etc.

Sometimes I feel like I have strayed from my original intent on my blog, but I still love blogging about what the Lord is doing in my life. However, the Lord uses circumstances to teach us things and help us grow over time, so the rest has acted as a filler between those teaching times.

I don't always blog about everything the Lord has done for me, because some things are so personal or hard to explain, but it's a constant effort for me to try to stay focused on honoring the Lord through my blog and keeping my eyes peeled for those things that I can share. Like I said, it's something I'm still working on!

Okay, now for the people I tag:

Jessica @ Called to Serve
Meg @ Southern Pathways
Jen @ The Life Accounts
AmyK @ The Inchie Project
Claire @ Fast Forward Girl
Amber @ His Grace Is Sufficient
Amanda @ A Sweet Serenity

Just because I've either never tagged you, or haven't in a long time!

And here are my new questions to you!

1. What do you like best about your current profession (stay-at-home mom or student both count as professions to me)?
2. What is your favorite color and why?
3. How did you come to know the Lord?
4. What was your favorite family tradition growing up?
5. What is your favorite girl movie (always looking for a good chick flick!)?
6. What is one book that you would say is a "must-read"?
7. What is one thing that you would like to do for or with your future children?

oh thanks for the tag! We plan to homeshool our kiddies and we are also planning a big euro excursion once all our debt is paid down! I'm impressed with your morning routine, mine is drag myself from bed, throw on the clothes I set out from the night before or lay in bed for 20 minutes debating what to wear since I was too lazy to do it the night before, brush my teeth, grab my purse and go. Lunch gets made the night before, showers are done the night before...I'm too tired to think straight in the mornings!

Thanks for the tag! I'm a little behind on my Reader, so I just noticed it.

I would love to go to Italy, too. It's my dream destination for a vacation. Hopefully someday!
