11 Random Facts About Me: ~~~ Linda Sue

1. I loved the Downton Abbey Series on Masterpiece Theater! Can't wait for Season 3

2. I love Daisy Sour cream! I put Salsa in it and eat it with tortilla chips, yumo!...or I sweeten it with organic powdered sugar and eat it with salted pretzels! (salty sweet thing!) I put it in potato soup, or on Mexican food...I even love a dollop on my pancakes with strawberry preserves! I try not to buy it very much, because I love it way too much! Ha!

3. I put a little bit of sea salt on my apples! I also put it on watermelon.

4. I love blueberries in my cheerios. Blueberries are so good for you!

6. I never go anywhere with out my makeup! NEVER! Yup...I look half dead without it! I have dark circles because of allergies.

8. I love pink grapefruit...it is so juicy!

9. I love the ocean...I lived just a few miles from it when I was growing up, and went there all the time. I have lived here in Kansas for a very long time and I miss the ocean. I think I need to go visit the ocean real soon. It makes me think of God's awesome power!

10. I love to go for rides in my car alone, out in the country, with some good cd's, and a cold drink, and my Bible. I end up at the park reading the word in my car, and talking and singing to God. Best devotion times all alone with God.

11. I like game shows...especially "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?"...I tape it everyday.

Now here are Jenilee's 11 questions for me to answer:

1. What is your dream vacation?
I want to spend a couple of weeks in the New England states to see the fall foliage some time soon. It's on my bucket list, because I have never done that before.

2. Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We went to Cheyenne Frontier Days in Wyoming...and all through Rocky Mountain Nation Forest in Colorado, in a motor-home.

3. If you could meet one famous person, who would it be?
Can't think of anyone...because although I'd maybe like to see someone famous up close...I am way to shy to know what to say to them!

4. What is your favorite Bible verse?
Be still and know that I am God! Psalm 46:10

5. Iced or Hot coffee?
I don't drink coffee much...but an occasional iced coffee is refreshing!

6. If you could renovate one room in your house, which one would it be?
House is only 5 years old, but I would like to get some new living-room furniture someday before too long!

7. How old were you when you got married?
I was 25 when I married John.

8. Do you journal on paper or just on a blog?
I used to journal in a book...but now blogging has taken the place of that.

9. Have you ever met a blog friend in real life?
No, I haven't...but I would love to meet several of you, cuz I feel like we are old friends/ or blog family!

10. Do you say pop or soda?

11. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I used to be a night owl...but I have switched, and now I go to bed early and wake up early, and I like that so much better. Mornings are wonderful and peaceful...and I enjoy my alone time.

I would be way too shy to meet a famous person in real life too! My oldest LOVES sour cream, she calls it just "cream" and will spoon it out of the container like yogurt if we let her!!

It was so fun to read your answers. I would love to meet you in person some day! You are so sweet and encouraging and I count you as a friend. Thank you for always being you!

I will have to try the sea salt on apples that sounds so yummy! I too love going on drives by myself. It is a great time to talk to God and praise Him for his beauty.

Charina @ Pondered Thoughts said...

Loved and enjoyed this Linda.

Thanks for giving us a chance to get to know you..more!

Becca said...

I love salt on my watermelon too! I also mix salsa with sour cream but use Ritz crackers to dip with. I saw it on the back of a box when I was younger and have eaten it ever since!

I could never move to anyplace where the ocean wasn't within driving distance. It also reminds me of God's power and everything is just so simple beach side!

I love reading post like these and learning random things about people that you usually wouldn't find out!

I hope you are having a great weekend! :)

CM said...

I never knew there were so many ways to use sour cream! Now I'm hungry! LOL!

Nice to meet ya! :-)

Holly said...

Rebecca said...

Had to come back and tell you hello again... Yep...come a long long way in the bedroom category. Still...something about that early yellow and green bedroom that makes me smile. We had NO MONEY and yet somehow God allowed me enough sense to at least TRY and make a home for my honey and I. I was 19 and without focus or direction. All I've become or ever hope to be is because of Him.

You bless me. You do!
