11 Randoms About ME:
1. I am as close to my dad as most girls are to their moms. I think it's because we're just a lot alike. My  mom and my brother are alike and both close too. It's funny how that goes but I don't mind.

2. I can't stand mushrooms cooked or raw. If they're on pizza, I'll eat them.  Just not my thing though.

3. I love it when Josh calls me his princess.  It's his thing. I love it.

4. I've always wanted to go to New York around Christmas time and take everything in. It would be fabulous. 

5. I always have the best ideas that I start but never finish it! {My craft drawers are proof of that}

6. I am like a walking spell check. I don't correct people unless they ask, but, if you ask, chances are I know how to spell it. 

7. I recently fell in love with popchips. SO good.

8. I am so sentimental. Example today: We recently went to my brother's swearing-in ceremony for the Navy and I took pictures. I wanted to put some on my Facebook page. But declined getting the camera because I know I'm going to cry looking through them. Gah. I love memories. I just get so teary-eyed thinking of the times we've had together and thinking of him being gone now. But, I'm thankful we were able to get pictures. We didn't think we'd be able to.

9. I've never been to a single prom. I was homeschooled and went to private school for all of my school years. 

10. Ironically though, the wedding dress I bought was a prom dress. Why they made a white prom dress, I have no idea. But really. Can you beat $150 at Dillard's?! It had beautiful beading and daisies, and I am short so it was floor length! My mom made my veil.

11. I am really independent. As sentimental as I am, I don't get homesick. It's weird. Anytime I've traveled, I haven't really missed home, growing up or now. Don't get me wrong- I love the people there, but I love the people I'm visiting too. And it's not that I don't love being home or my home- I definitely do! It's just how I am. Weird huh?

Randi's questions for me
1. What was your favorite book as a child/teenager?
I don't think I could pick just one. I loved to read and frequently had the limit of books checked out on my library card. Some favorites: Choose your own adventure series, American Girl books, historical fiction, Frank Peretti, Melody Carlson, Janette Oke, Robin Jones Gunn... so many many favorites.  

2. What is your most visited website?
Facebook. It's how I connect with so many far-away family and friends.

3. How did you meet your spouse/significant other?
Through my cousin, actually! We were all hanging out one summer and started dating the next year. 
We decided we kindof liked each other, and, well, the rest is history!

4. Do you have any can't miss TV shows
We don't have cable or even basic tv so it makes it a little challenging to follow any shows
but some of my favorites are shows like Cake Boss, any cooking competitions, any fashion competitions,
Grey's Anatomy, Deadliest Catch, Mythbusters, and some of the crime dramas.

5. If you have children, how did you come up with your child's name? If you don't have children, do you already have name ideas for future children?
Andrew was a good compromise from some of Josh's traditional favorites and some of my more modern favorites.

6. What is your earliest memory?
Going to see my brother at the hospital when I was 3. However, I don't remember him. Just going to the hospital and getting this fun pretend food from "him." Funny how that goes, isn't it?

7. Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? How?
It depends on the year and the finances! Usually though just something small and thoughtful for each other. 
I told Josh a card is a must. I don't know why, but I am a sucker for getting a good card!
This year we might go out on a date. We'll see!

8. What's your favorite bible verse and why? (If you're not religious, any other quote, etc you find inspiring?)
I love Jeremiah 29:11-  For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 

9. How would you describe your decorating style?
You mean, the style I hope to one day have? It's hard to really decorate when you only have white walls and a small place to work with, so now, where we're at, it doesn't quite reflect the style I love, but describing it- I love blue, & brown, with touches of pretty flourishes, and creativeness. Someday.. we'll have our place.

10. If you had $5000 to spend, but could only choose one store, what store would you pick? What would you buy?
Target. All the way baby. There are so many things you could spend $5,000 on there. I'm always hoping I'll win those surveys they have! Plus there's too!

11. And a hot topic question- Chili: noodles, no noodles? How do you make your chili?
Can't stand noodles in my chili. Just meat, beans, and veggies!
