Question 1
Which is worse? Being gossipped about or being lied to?

HOLY COW! This is a tough one. I guess being lied to would be worse for me. Speaking from experience in all my lowly days of being a good gossiper, the facts were usually very wrong and very twisted so it just came down to "talk" and no truth whatsoever. Now, being lied to....that person knew better. A 5 yr old knows not to lie. But, a grown up??!! Lets be a grown up.

Question 2
I see that a lot of ladies out there in blogville are "Starbucks" gals... What is your favorite "Starbucks" drink?

I have a few that I really L-O-V-E.....all nonfat and no whip....the fat is outrageous with it any other way.....When I got hooked on Starbucks and didn't know any better...I wondered where that 5 lbs came from....and came on quickly! Ok, loved the peppermint white mocha, love the cinnamin dolce latte, and the good ole white mocha. Remember, nonfat and no whip girls.

Question 3
Name an embarrassing moment (Make it good).

Well, this was tough for me. I can emabarrass myself with my big southern mouth but with a clothes issue....just last Sunday at church I walked around with my pants unzipped ALL MORNING LONG!!! Thankfully, I was wearing a longer top and hopefully noone noticed!

Question 4
I figure that most of us ladies out there are bargain shoppers and that we find ways to save money, but what is one thing that you don't mind spending your bucks on?

Well, when I do....and it really is more rare with each year bc of the kids and their expense level increases by the second.....I LOVE a great purse and great clothes. Thats a real treat for me. Its rare now. I love some TJ Maxx, Steinmart(s), and Tar-jay!

Question 5
Is it hard for you to ask someone to forgive you when you have wronged them?

I have just been thinking about this forgiveness thing from the other perspective....when we are wronged. So......I hope to goodness that I would be completely big enough to say "I'm sorry and I completely messed up and was wrong." Its so hard to do. Its the right thing to do.

Question 6
Give one of your best parenting tips...something that you have learned through experience...

Oh my! I could probably list 101 things that I have learned from personal mistakes. One big one for me that has happened over the last year would be......pray yourself up before you start your day. God will do incredible things for us when we are filled with Him and the fruit of the Spirit will just flow out of us. When I have patience with my children in situations that I would have normally "lost it," then I know my beautiful God came through for me! :)

That was fun!

I am so glad that you finally got a chance to participate... I have come to enjoy seeing your name on my bloggy. Loved, loved, loved your answer for the last are totally right about that!!! I sadly too was a gossip for way too long..God woke me up one day, and took me on a long journey out of that trap. I can't say I never slip up, but feel at least now that I am quick to repent and make things right...

Blessings and come back next Friday too...but before that as well!!

Great responses to the questions. Your embarrassing moment was the same as mine except I was on an airplane!

Great Know & Tell this week! I discovered the peppermint white chocolate mocha over the holidays & have switched to that from my usual white chocolate mocha. Isn't it just HEAVEN? Hope you have a great weekend!

Great list! I also loved the last question!
And you know...I am not a coffee drinker! Sounds like it might be a good thing that I never got hooked on it! All of my friends who drink coffee are also slaves to Starbucks, so it must be good.

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
