Wednesday Hodgepodge!

Wednesday, January 7, 2015


Happy Wednesday Friends! Time for another Wednesday Hodgepodge with Joyce from over at From This Side of the Pond ....this is always such a fun linkup that I love doing. Hope you enjoy.


1. Share a favorite moment from your Christmas holiday celebration.

Well. I know it isn't fair to the guys but the girls blew me away this year. They are all growing up into wonderful ladies who are well educated, well spoken and full of potential for the future. I had such a wonderful time with them which made our trip up north totally worth it. Even my best friend and her daughter are doing well and taking charge of their lives. It's amazing to actually see all the girls doing so well. Not to mention my sister in law and niece who are also doing sooooo good.


The boys were amazing too. But as the girls get older, they are taking over. And I couldn't be more proud. ♥

2. What would you say has been the biggest news event during your life so far?

Wow. News event huh? Well I think it would have to be President Obama getting elected, but 9/11, OJ trial, The new Pope, Tiger Woods Scandal, Boston Bombings, Bin Lauden killed, all the Hollywood deaths, are all HUGE events during my lifetime....along with so many others.

3. The Pantone Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala. What say you-like or no like? Would I find this color anywhere in your home or wardrobe? Will you add something in this shade to either? 

I don't have much in this color. I am not a huge fan. I think this is more dark that what I want in the house. I have some dishes my mom got me in this color but that's about it!

4. Would you rather meet your ancestors or your great grandchildren? Explain why.

Omg. That is a crazy question. I think one day I will see my ancestors on the other side but God willing I wouldn't see my great grandchildren for a long time so I would pick them. I think it would be amazing to meet the children that are going to carry on our family well into the future.

5. Share one life lesson learned in 2014?

Just one!? I think one of the biggest lessons of 2014 is was learning to be ok with myself and the journey that got me to where I am now. I have failed, fallen, and made wrong decisions at different points in my life and those taught me the best and hardest lessons. My journey is nothing to be ashamed of and learning to be ok with it was a huge lesson I learned.

6. What was your best or favorite purchase made in 2014?

My little bug! I got into a major car wreck and needed a new car. Scott drove this home and surprised me. It is small but so am I so its a great fit. I love it.

7. What is one thing you're looking forward to in the new year?

Starting fresh. Any new year is a great chance to clean up your home and life so the upcoming months will run more smoothly. I am excited for a cruise we are taking in June and seeing what life gives this new year.

8.  Insert your own random thought here. 

Sorry this post is kinda late today. Its super cold here, just like so many other places so I have stayed and have not accomplished much today. I am currently doing a daily challenge that I am sharing on instagam so I got that done.. Dinner is cooking...and I am waiting on husby to come home. Jackson is on a big delay tomorrow so it looks like I will be having to take him to school. Here in SC we don't get much snow except in the mountains but it's snowing in Ashville right now. All day I have kept the fire going and trying to find any and all motivation. What makes it worse is American Idol starts tonight so I probably will be laid up on the couch under the blanket most of the evening. I also started a new book today and haven't gotten very far but what else is there to do!? I hope you guys are staying warm as well. I am so ready for spring! Feel free to comment and let me know what your weather is like. Are you freezing too!? I can't help to mention that my ♥ goes out the victims in Paris that were killed this morning. It's really heartbreaking and we lift their families in our prayers.

I have a video uploading right now that should be up in a couple of hours. Stay tuned and if you wish you can subscribe to me so you don't miss any new videos popping up.
