What is your least favorite household chore? DISHES! Hands down. I'd rather scrub toilets. Weird, I know.
What are your pet peeves? I have one main big one: CRAZY DRIVERS. I don't know which is worse, the fast ones who act like they OWN the road, lol, or the slow ones who REFUSE to move over. Today I had TWO mud-turtles driving the same speed and I couldn't get around EITHER one of them. Then one of them FINALLY sped up a little, so I was like, "YES! Finally!" and got behind him. THEN guess what he did? SLOWED DOWN EVEN MORE! Gah! I think he just wanted to annoy me.
Haha! I'll wash your dishes if you'll scrub my toilets! I hate scrubbing toilets but I don't mind doing the dishes....though, my hubby does the dishes so maybe that's why I don't mind them so much?!
Haha! I soo know what you mean about crazy drivers! Grrr....makes my blood boil too.
Name one thing Hannah does that makes you laugh
Name one thing Hannah does that makes you scream (lol)
How did you meet your DH?
How did your DH propose?
If "they" made a movie about your life, what genre would it be and who would play you?
Name one thing Hannah does that makes you laugh. ONE thing? Oh my goodness... how do I choose, lol. She is one big giant goofball. To pick one... she does this thing where she makes her hands talk to each other and play with each other. She pretends that her hands are various people or animals or even objects. On occasion she will have her hands 'fight' each other and it is so hilarious! And then she did something recently for the first time: Sometimes I use the "1...2...3" thing with her when she won't listen, and I very rarely get past 1 before she does what she was asked. This particular day I had walked her to class (which I rarely do anymore) and she didn't want to stop clinging to me and join her classmates. I was squatting down talking to her and started counting, "1.... (still clinging) 2.... (no change)... then just as I was about to say "3" (which would mean consequences for her), she suddenly clamped her hand over my mouth! Well, that's one way to stop me from saying 3!
Name one thing Hannah does that makes you scream (lol). When she whines (which usually involves a huge drama fest, hence the "drama queen" smiley in my siggy, lol) or repeats something over and over incessantly.
How did you meet your DH? We were both attending the same Sunday School class (it was specifically for singles). I actually dated another guy in that class first, who we're still really good friends with (he married another girl from that same class, lol).
How did your DH propose? He took me to a beautiful place in our hometown overlooking the water, got down on one knee, presented me with a beautiful ring, and proposed. I said, No. (Just kidding! Hahaha. I said yes, of course!) Then he took me to a nice restaurant (also overlooking the water) and we had a really nice dinner, then we went for a walk. He even wore a black cowboy hat and black leather vest that night, which he knows I love (that is so not him, by the way. He wears Indiana Jones type hats, which I HATE, lol).
If "they" made a movie about your life, what genre would it be and who would play you? I was hoping you wouldn't ask me this one, lol. But it's a good thing! It's making me stretch my brain to really think. I'll have to come back with my answer later.
Where did you grow up? A quaint little town in Northeast Florida, near the beach. I was a real beach girl for the longest time. I tried learning to surf, but apparently it wasn't my cup of tea. Either that, or I gave up too easy
How did you choose DD's name? We couldn't decide, but when she was born it just came to me. Her first name, "Hannah" comes from the woman in the Bible who waited so many years to have a child and still couldn't, so she got down on her knees and pleaded with God with all of her heart to give her a child, and He did. I could relate to it because I also waited so many years to have a child. When I told DH the name, he instantly agreed that it fit her perfectly.
Any holiday traditions? We like to fill a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child every year. Other than that the only 'tradition' we have is to read the story of the birth of Jesus on Christmas morning, before opening the gifts. We're a fairly young family (as in, only married less than 6 yrs), so we haven't really developed any of our own traditions yet, but I follow my mom's tradition of wrapping gifts a few at a time and putting them under the tree for a few days leading up to Christmas morning (she passed away back in 1995 of diabetic complications). I'd like to start some other traditions, one of which would be going as a family to serve food at the homeless shelter on a certain day in December.
Jina ~ I still haven't come up with anything for a type of movie about my life and who would play me, lol. I'm afraid I'm not very good at that sort of thing. I'll keep thinking on it.

Ok, about the movie genre... I asked my DH to help, and he came up with something almost immediately. He said it would be a movie based on a 'southern country' song, and that Julia Roberts would play me.
If you could travel through time, when and where would you go? Hey, may as well go right now, long as I could take H and DH with me and we decided together that we think we'd like to go way back to the pre-flood era.
You are granted 3 wishes - GO!
1. That I'd have unlimited wishes
2. To have the wisdom of Solomon (without some of his err...um... "practices.")
3. Perfect health (mainly referring to my hip and knee issues here) and unlimited stamina
Savory or sweet?
If you mean what I prefer MOST of the time - savory.
What are 5 things that you want to accomplish in your life? (stole this one from Alissa! )
1. To place in the top 3 in a 5K race. Maybe even 1st place in my age group.
2. Write a best-selling novel/book.
3. Start my own business and make a 7-figure income (because I want to do the following).
4. Start a home for battered/abused women and children. Many women in those situations are stuck because they don't have the money to leave, and/or they don't want to move in with family or even on their own for fear of being found by their abusing spouse. I want them to have a place to go and be able to recover, be protected, get counseling if needed, then get on their feet and be able to support themselves (and any children they have) and move somewhere safe.
5. Start a home for the homeless, not just a shelter, but a place where they can get food/clothing and the necessary counseling needed (if they are willing) to be able to get off the street and on their feet.
Favorite place to shop? Forever 21
Describe your favorite outfit to wear on a date night.
I don't really have a "favorite" outfit to wear, because I just wear whatever I'm in the mood for, but I usually will wear something similar to this:
Describe your favorite pair of shoes. A pr of black ankle boots that I bought recently, but after wearing them a couple of times, I realized the heel was a little too spikey and my feet would start to hurt after awhile, so I'm going to take them back for a refund (if that store will give a refund) and trade them for another pr of ankle boots that I saw at Target that I also love and has a wider heel.
Describe your favorite piece of jewelry. A necklace my DH gave me that has 3 silver tiered strands with pearls spaced about an inch apart. It looks great with just about anything.
Describe your favorite way to wear your hair. Like this (that's not me, by the way):
Who is your celebrity look alike? Gwyneth Paltrow:
If you could change one thing in your life, what would you change? Where we live and what we live IN (lol).
Where is the farthest you have ever been from home? Cincinnati, OH.
Do you like to travel, or are you more of a homebody? I would say I'm somewhere in-between. I love traveling, but wouldn't want to do it all the time, unless it was a requirement for something I really loved to do and made good money (and I would then make myself homeschool H and take her with me, and--if I made enough money--take DH with me, too! lol).
Do you have any hobbies? Surfing p.org, of course ... reading, scrapbooking, writing. I'd love to start painting again, too.
That was fun! What awesome questions. Thank you

Thanks, Jina! And by the way, Gwyneth was the "closest" to looking like me I could come up with, I doubt very seriously I would be considered as beautiful as her, lol. She is much skinnier (about 15 lbs. skinnier, I think), plus her hair is lighter and longer than mine.
