Random Sunday Stealing

happy Saturday! today was a semi-lazy one, but lots of chatting, going to the storage unit and now home and finally showered up and writing this blog post. well, so many people i know are getting married soon! congrats to them all. i hope mine will be next (a girl can be hopeful right?)

before we get started let's talk about a site called Swagbucks! are you a part of it? great way to earn gift cards to your favorite places, cash, and prizes and all for FREE! it is fun too and the community is great. with Memorial Day (thank you to the troops you gave it all for our Freedom) around the corner, great time to start with Swagbucks and start earning Memorial Day collector bucks. if you collect all 5 by June 1st you get extra Swagbucks!! click the link to find out more and sign up for FREE!!

ok, let's do some Sunday Stealing...random style!

Random XV
1. How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet?--i have my first set of shoes of when i was a baby. my mother gave it to me, so that would be a 29 year old pair of shoes (almost 30 in July!)

2. Did you buy Girl Scout cookies this year? If so, what variety?--none this year. really i did not see the Girl Scouts out this year :( i hear Dollar General has the generic brand Girl Scout cookies (thin mints and coconut-caramel kind for under $2 a box) taste like the real thing to me :) 

3. Do you know how to ballroom dance?--no, but i would like to and i think i could pick it up quickly as long as "he" is leading right.

4. Were you a responsible child/teenager?--i would say so. i never gave my parents any trouble...still do not :)

5. How many of this year's Oscar-nominated movies did you see?--two (if that)

6. If you're going to have a medical procedure done, such as having blood drawn, is it easier for you to watch someone else having the procedure done or have it done yourself?--does not matter to me. i have had 3 eye surgeries to repair structural damage, so i am ok with medical procedures. i did watch it on YouTube so at least i would have an idea of what was going on. i was awake/twilight sleep during it all.

7. What is your favorite day of the week and why?--Friday! end of the week and i get to sleep in a bit on Saturday. 

8. What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received??--good evaluations at work and someone saying "I Love You". that is always nice. 

9. Do hospitals make you queasy?--not at all!! see question #6 for more reasons why.

10. At which store would you like to max-out your credit card?--hmmm, Super Target. one stop shop. the other place would maybe be a thrift store where my money would go a LOOOONNNNGGGG way and a good bit of the money spent at most of them go to a good cause (church, homeless, kids, etc.)

11. Are you true to the brand names of products/items?--no

12. Which is more difficult: looking into someone’s eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someone’s eyes when he/she is telling you how he/she feels?--the first one. looking into someone's eyes when you are telling them how you feel.

13. What’s one thing you’re deeply proud of — but would never put on your résumé?--how i have overcome quite a few set-backs, and still able to achieve a goal (such as, some classes i did not do so well in, but i did them again, did better, and achieved my Master's Degree!)

14. What’s the most out-of-character choice you’ve ever made?--hmmm, perhaps some of the boys/men i have dated in the past??

15. What’s your personal anthem or theme song?--the song "Just Stand" by Donnie McClurkin. love the part that says "After you've done all you can...You Just Stand".



  1. Congratulations for being resilient. Not everyone is! And good evaluations at work are great!

  2. I love your description of yourself up top! And your shoes made me realize, I have a pair of my son's baby shoes! Darn it! I forgot about those :) Happy Sunday!

  3. I love your positive comments :-) Also, you reminded me that my in-laws bronzed my husband's first pair of baby shoes, which I thought was kind of creepy until I read your post. Now I think it's kind of sweet!

  4. I love the idea of having your first pair of shoes. . . think about how far you've come since you were that tiny!

  5. Mementos from babyhood, that is cool!

  6. You are extremely encouraging with number 13. If at first........

    ...and I, too, have dated some 'creepers' in my time!
