Day 7: What's Your Dream Job

Are we already 7 days into March?!? Wow!

I would have to say that my dream job would be being a stay-at-home mom. I love it and I don't care how much more money we would have or how much more stuff we would have if I had a "real job", I wouldn't trade being a SAHM for anything!

I love doing photography and selling Scentsy. And I get to do it from home!

One day I do plan on starting an Etsy store though! I already have the name picked out. I plan on calling it Far Above Rubies Children's Boutique. I love to make childrens' clothing and accessories!

So... that's all for today!

Day 6: Your Last Random Act of Kindness

I guess my last random act of kindness was tonight when I drove to AND from Lexington because Steven was too tired. I am an awesome wife. How kind of me to do that for him, right?!?

Day 5: Favorite Movies You Never Get Sick of Watching

Okay. So I will just start out by saying that we do not own a tv, nor do we watch movies.


Therefore, I do not have a favorite movie or show or anything of the sort.

And no, we are not Amish.

We do, however, let the kids watch Veggie Tales or learning DVDs. Things that will teach them. We also limit that because we do not think kids (or adults) should sit in front of a screen all day.

Random side note... It's snowing here!!!!!!

Day 4: Best Childhood Memory

I had a really good childhood. I was (am) very blessed. Or you could say spoiled. Or blessed and spoiled. Whatever.

I do not know what would be my best childhood memory. I had lots of good ones. So I'll just pick one and go with it!

When I was little, my brother-in-law made me this "tire" swing. Only he didn't use a tire. He used a huge PVC pipe and rope. But, me and my friends would spend all day long out there swinging on this swing. Even when I got older. This was the meeting place I guess. Where we told all our deepest, darkest secrets. Secrets like who we had a crush on that day and such!

We had a lot of fun on that swing. It would even hold 2 kids at once!

One of our favorite things to do is get on the swing and get another person to twist you and twist and twist and twist and then let go. You would spin for what felt like hours! And all your blood would rush to your toes. Or head. Or both. I can't remember. And when you would finally stop, you would think, 'Why in the world did I do that?' Ha!

I remember one time, we set off to dig a swimming pool under the swing. Yeah. Around an hour later we had a hole of about 3 inches wide and 2 inches deep. Pretty good progress when all you have is a spoon!

Well, I guess that's all for now!

Day 2: Favorite Quote(s)

Can the a Bible verse be a quote? If so, my favorite quote is,

Ephesians 3:20 KJV

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

That is my all time favorite verse!

I also am a bit crazy over the whole 'Keep Calm and Carry On' quote. I love it!

And on a lighter note... everyone loves the quote, "Ain't nobody got time for that." Ha!
