Bloggers 411 Link-Up With Becky

It's Tuesday, and Becky's hosting a great link-up today where we can all learn extra little nuggets about each other as bloggy friends. Sounds fun right? (Right. So if you haven't linked up, do it!)

I chose to answer a few of Becky's suggested questions. Enjoy!

1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed?

Gosh, it's been 3 1/2 years since I've started blogging, and it's changed in most ways. Early posts revolved around food; this blog's namesake is literal after all. These days it's taken a figurative twist as posts talk about what our family's adding to spice up our lives.

2. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?

As the winner of a shopping spree, the first thing I would do is offer part of the sum to a personal shopper to lead me around stores where I'd find the perfect outfits. I'm just not that "great" at shopping, and we wouldn't have to hit any crazy expensive stores, maybe just stores I don't find myself shopping without sales at for my mom clothes.

3. Show us a picture from high school or college.

Instead of high school or college, how about elementary???

My dad put this one on my fb wall earlier last week. It makes me happy.

4. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?

My favorite me time includes a beverage, comfy lounge chair in the backyard sunlight, and a book I'm completely wrapped around. Turns out that I can't daytime drink every day this summer and that whole get-a-tan thing is horrible for your skin. These days I'll just stick to the book and the occasional beverage.

5. Where do you see your life 5 years from now?

I'm so hesitant to answer this question, but I always want to. Instead of telling you where I'll be living, how many children I'll have, where I'll be working, or how pregnant I might be, I'd rather tell you that I will be further along my journey of contentment with my life, I will be even more fully trusting in God's plans for where I'm meant to be, and proud of the wife and mother I've grown to be in the last five years.

I'm hoping lots of you, dear readers, link up with Becky as well so I can find out some fun facts about ya!

Allie said...

OMG Dying over that pic of you!! You were too cute!! Personal shopper would be genius! I need one of those haha

Lindsay said...

Love this picture {the shirt is too cute}! Also I loved where you said you would be in 5 years. I didn't have a hard time typing up somthing but when I clicked "publish" I too then thought about if I would regret that statement or not. Oh well I guess It will be good to look back and see where I am.

Am I Really Grown Up? said...

I love, love, love the answer to your last question! I think people (or me) get wrapped up in their "plan" for the future. All I want to happiness and fulfillment. I wouldn't be able to pick and choose my life as it is right now so how could I do it with my future?

Erin said...

Alright your five years answer almost has me crying. This is why I love you. Oh and that photo of you from childhood is so cute!!

I really enjoy your approach to life. In real life, when people ask me what I want to be in the future, I always respond, "Happy." God has amazing plans for all of our lives; I hope you live yours out :)

Stopping in from 411 link-up :)
