Scrumptious


My friend, Laura, tagged me for a Scrumptious Blog award. Laura writes at String of Pearls, and she is also the author of Finding Grace. If you have not already, you should take a moment to meet Laura, and you should read her book!

Now for Laura's questions:




1. What was your favorite sitcom growing up?

The Facts of Life was my favorite sitcom. I loved it, and I spent many years wishing I could go to an all girls boarding school and live with a nice woman like Mrs. Garret.

 2. What song makes you happy every time you hear it?

I Can Only Imagine - Mercy Me


 3. Have you ever had anything happen to you that you thought was bad, but it turned out to be for the best?

Not knowing my father was hard for me. Growing up, I always thought that my life would be better if he would show up at the front door and take an interest in me. Now that I am an adult, I can look back on my childhood and see how it shaped the woman I have become. I am happy with my life, so I guess it all worked out for the best.


 4. Do you have a favorite saint you pray to, or one to whom you feel a special friendship?

Saint Rita. I wrote a little about my devotion to her here.

 5. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a beautician when I was a girl.

 6. Do you prefer scary movies or comedies?

Hmm, I prefer period romance and sci-fi movies. Between scary and comedy, I am going to have to pick scary, but zombies or ghosts - not chop everyone up into little pieces after torturing them scary.

 7. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

There are a lot of things that I want to learn how to do: use a sewing machine, dance ballet, speak French fluently, cut hair like a professional, and shoot a gun. I am sure that I will eventually have the time to learn to do some of the things on my list.

 8. When you have 30 minutes of free time, how do you spend it?

I try to make time every day to do the things I love, like read, knit, exercise, and write. So if I had 30 minutes of real free time, I think I would nap.

 9. What's the hardest thing you've ever done?

Hold my grandfather's hand while he was dying. It was hard, but I am glad that I was there with him.

 10. If you could be any fictional character, whom would you choose?

There are so many characters that I have loved reading about through the years. Anne Shirley, Jane Eyre, Anne Elliot, Elizabeth Bennet, Mary Lennox are some of my favorites, but I do not think I would want to live any of their lives. I guess I would choose Hermione Granger because her life seems so exciting and adventurous and not like real life that I think it would be fun to experience. 

Now, the rules say that I am supposed to come up with 10 new questions and tag other bloggers with less than 100 followers.

Here are my questions:

1. What kind of snacks do you prefer, sweet or salty?
2. What was the happiest day/days of your life?
3. Do you prefer to read a book or watch TV?
4. What is your favorite prayer?
5. When you were a little girl, how many children did you want to have?
6. Do you have a bucket list? If so, what is at the top of the list?

My last 4 questions I am borrowing from Laura because they are great questions.

7. Have you ever had anything happen to you that you thought was bad, but it turned out to be for the best?
8. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
9. What's the hardest thing you've ever done?
10. If you could be any fictional character, whom would you choose?

I am tagging YOU! Yes, you! If you read this blog, have a  scrumptious blog, and have less than 100 followers consider yourself tagged. :-)

    (Oh, and I just re-read your post on St. Rita. I love it that a report you had to do as an 8th grader led to a lifelong devotion to this powerful saint.
