Thursday Thirteen # 7

Thirteen Things about Karen:

1...I am an only child. I like it most days. If I had brothers and sisters, I would probably wish I was an only child. I used to like being the center of attention all the time, now I just enjoy it on my birthday, and when I am having a baby. (Those are two great reasons to be in the center of attention!)

2…I love daisies! They are my favorite flower. I had them on the tables at our reception. Whenever Jeremy buys me flowers, they are usually daisies.

3…Mexican food – I could eat it every night if Jeremy would let me and if I wouldn’t gain the weight. :) I just really like Mexican food. Spicy is good.

4...I love to write. I write to vent. I write to make people laugh, because there is just nothing better than a good story to make someone laugh. I write because I want my child(ren) to read them one day and see the kind of person I was before I was a mom and before they were too young to know.

5...I am a believer in Jesus Christ. He's the Son of God. Fully God, Fully Man and he came so that we may have LIFE and have it abundantly.

6...I work. I have many hats, but I where these four hats everyday (M-F): Servant to the Most High God. Wife to Jeremy. Momma to David. Assistant at an office. The last one I don't do on the weekends. :) I like all my jobs and we have good and bad days in each of them.

7...Seminary. That was a particularly stretching time in my life. I think Jeremy and I did a good job at building our marriage on a firm foundation and being away from family is helpful when you first start out...it helped us focus on God and each other. I say now that everyone should go to seminary...it will definately stretch you and help you focus on the One True thing.

8...Music - OMGoodness...I love music. I know I have said that many times before, but I can honestly go from one emotion to the next in a great song. Music can be soothing to me, can help me focus on God (during worship songs), can get me all excited and silly, or make me wanna change the channel. :) I like it that I got that trait from my dad and that I am instilling music into David. He has asked me to sing every morning in the car this week...does he not know I don't sing all that well? Apparently to him, I sing great!

9...Sleep - I need it. I like sleeping and I used to be great at it...that was before having to share a bed with someone and have a baby. :) I still get a good night's rest, but would love more hours to snooze, ya know.

10...I like to organize. I have done wonders at many offices by organizing. I wonder if I could be a full time organizer? To love organizing this much, you gotta have lots of cool things to help you organize!

11...I love to scrapbook! I also wish I could do that all the time too. It's fun to create pages and put pictures on them, and that's just part of organizing! :) My scrapbooks aren't all that elaborate, but I like them.

12...I love vacations. I think there are many purposes to a vacation, but somehow I always need another vacation after my vacation. Isn't that always the case? :)

13...I am a fun, outgoing and personable girl. You would never know that i was an only child...I share pretty well. ha.

Oh, I love Mexican food too! It's my favorite! I also love to scrapbook - it's such a creative outlet for me, in a different way than writing. Thanks for sharing about yourself!

I totally agree with #2 & #9. Daisies are one of my favorite flowers, too. I also LOVE to sleep! I used to sleep 10+ hours a night before the kids. Now I'm lucky if I get 5!

FatedHearts said...

I have a best friend who is an only child too. I do love mexican food, yummylicious!! Scrapbooking is fun, i'm still a beginner though.

Happy TT, thanks for visiting mine.

PatentPrincess said...

Sounds like we have a lot of things in common. I'm an only child (and LOVE it), I like daisies, I could eat Mexican almost every day, I love writing, I'm a believer, and I'm always listening to music. Great list!

Stacy said...

Great Thursday Thirteen! #9-12 are totally me too :) Unfortunately, I'd have to substitute Chinese/Japanese food for #3, but I do love me some Mexican too, LOL!!!

Have a great day, I played too...

I have lived the only child life and then the oldest of 3 life. My mom has 2 other daughters but i am my dads only and lived with him and his family til i was 11. And i would sooo take the only again. But i also have a better relationship with him which i think that is the reason.

Susan said...

I love music, Mexican food, scrapbooking AND vacations. It's fun to write these things out and really give the blogging world a glimpse of who we are...thanks for the list.

My TT is up here.

PixiePincessMom said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh I could live on Mexican food alone! And my Mom loves Daisies too.

Thanks for visiting my TT! Have an awesome evening. :-)

TNChick said...

Daisies are my fave, too! I don't think I'd like being an only child... I'd not like knowing when my folks grow old I'd be along in caring for them... or if they pass on I'm left alone to deal with everything. Well, that's not the only reason but one. LOL I like Mexican but not all of it... I prefer Chinese. I totally love music... and well, I could keep going but I'm tryin' to catch up to a few blogs.. thought I'd swing by here, too. Have a wonderful Friday.

Tess said...
