I am so excited about the Fallapalooza Blog Party going on over at Below the Plateau!!! It's going to be so much fun! It has officially opened for entries today, so be sure to go on over there and enter! See the rules and ways to enter here.
 Here are my answers to the interview questions!

Interview Questions:

1. Ring! Ring! You receive a phone call from a national sweepstakes organization saying that you have won a life-time supply of your favorite beverage!! What would that drink be?
 Well, this may be weird, but my favorite drink has always been milk. ;-) 

2. If you could live in a Jane Austen novel, which book would you pick? What character would you be?
 I would have to say Pride & Prejudice. That is my all time favorite Jane Austen novel. :-) I love Lizzy's personality, but I think I'm more like Jane.

3. What is your theme song, that favorite song that absolutely matches you?
 That is a hard one to answer, but it would probably be Every Time I Breathe by Big Daddy Weave.

4. You are trapped on a deserted island. Your only supplies are the clothes you have on, and a box with five things in it. What are those five things?
My Bible,  WOULD MY HUSBAND FIT IN THE BOX?????, a gun, a knife,  matches.   

5. Chocolate or Caramel? 
  DEFINITELY chocolate. :-)

6. Vacation! If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
    Oooooo, I'd have a hard time deciding between Ireland, the Caribbean, and horseback riding out west. :-) If I could go horseback riding in Ireland, that would be where I'd go :-) 

7. If forced to do one of the two, which would you do: sky diving or scuba diving? Why? 
 SCUBA DIVING!!!!!! Because I'd much rather swim with sharks than jump out of an airplane.  ;-)   

8. Favorite TV show, and why?
  The Andy Griffith show! :-) Because it's clean and really funny!

9. Are you a coffee and donuts sorta lady, or a tea and scones type of gal?
 Coffee and donuts without a doubt!

10.The time machine has finally been created, and you are the first to be able to use it! What era would you travel too?
      The 1700's. I think it would be so cool to see how life was really like back then first hand.

11. What is the last movie you watched? 
      The Fiddler on the Roof.
12. Ding-dong!!! Your favorite actor/singer/celebrity is at your front door! Who would it be?
 Mrs. Duggar! She qualifies as a celebrity now right?? :-) I'd love to meet her.

13. What was your absolute favorite toy as a baby? 
 I had some little plastic model horses that I LOVED :-)

14. What types of blogs do your like best? (examples: DIY, cooking, journal, ect.)
        I love blogs with a lot of photography,  but my favorite thing to do is read creative and interesting and uplifting posts.!

15. What is your favorite Bible verse, your "life verse?" Jeremiah 29: 11-13 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, " plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart."

Ok, now go on over there and get yourself entered!!! :-)

Fallapalooza Blog Party ~ And Fall Is Here In Ohio!!!!

Ok, I'm really excited about the Fallapalooza Blog Party going on at Below the Plateau!!! I just posted about it on my other blog, so instead of re-writing it here, ya'll can just head on over there if you want. Don't miss out on the fun! It's going to be a blast. ;-) The giveaway opens for entries on September 22nd - THAT'S ONLY SEVEN DAYS!!! So yeah, go on over there and find out how to enter. :-)


Something else I am VERY excited about is that........... FALL IS HERE!!!! The trees aren't really changing yet (although I have seen a few twinges of color!! :-), but the weather has turned cool, the goldenrod is blooming,

the corn fields are turning from green to yellow,

and I am barely resisting the urge to PLAY CHRISTMAS MUSIC!! (Yes I am one of THOSE people)

My sunflowers are almost done blooming.

I LOVE sunflowers ;-)

The ones this color are my favorite. :-)

For those of you who love in warmer places ( I mean YOU you Florida people ) don't be discouraged, the heat will soon give way to beautiful cooler weather, the pumpkins will be out, the grass will no longer need mowed, the leaves will need raked, and before you know it, Christmas songs will be playing on the radio. :-)

And now, for some pictures of my kitchen, which underwent some re-organization last week. I told my dear friend ( you know who you are ;-) that I would post pictures, so here they are:

This is me ( duh) getting ready to tackle the cabinets....

My lovely apron- a gift from my Aunt Polly :-)

My first victim, I was always struggling to get what I needed out of here.

And here it is finished!! I decided to move my pots and pans here because it was much easier access than the one they have been in. :-) I can even get to my pancake griddle now!! Woohoo!

This is where I used to keep my pots and pans... I like this much better :-) Now to make some sort of curtain to cover the opening. :-/

Can you believe ALL of this came out of these TWO cabinets?? I couldn't. :-)

That's much better. Yes.

And here are all the others all cleaned up! :-) I am very pleased with the results!

And now I must go do some laundry and pick up the house. :-) Have a LOVERLY day girls!!!
