To the Young Dreamers...Like Me...

I s'pose all of us have, except for a few, thought of, or dreamed about our: wedding day, future children, how to decorate our future homes, perhaps about publishing a book, maybe about supper tonight. Whatever it is, I'm sure that every single follower of mine has dreamed about something or other.
I dream about most/all of the things listed (occasionally ommitting "supper tonight"). I consider it GREAT fun to dream, plot and plan about my future. There is one thing that  kinda puts a damper on dreaming though. 'Tis called: not knowing what the future holds.

 However, this little variable needn't be concerning to Daughters Of The King, since they know that the future is held by their Father, who knows what's best for them. :)

I have a hankering to be nosy right now, so I have put together these five questions in the hopes that everyone who reads this post will answer them in their comments. :D

Here goes:

What event in your future do you dream about the most?

Do you care to share any names you may have picked out for your children? (If so, what are they?)

What color do you want the bridesmaid's dresses in your wedding to be?

What color of paint do you want to paint your "living room" with?

If there were a particular virtue that you would want to pass on to your children, what would it be?

Okay, Thanks!!
Anna

Wowzers - deep questions. ;) But I shall do me best...

(1) Of course having a home of my own - and holding a sweet little baby. ;) One that goes to sleep. :D

(2) It differs time to time...and right now I'm feeling nastily critical and can't think of any. ;)

(3) -- too hard -- there are so many lovely colors...*puts on thinking cap*

(4) I think a nice spicy brownish/reddish might be nice - some coffee-ish cozily. ;)

(5) Humbleness or think before speaking. ;)

What are your answers?

*hugs*

1. What event in your future do you dream about the most?
Courtship and marriage and having my own family

2. Do you care to share any names you may have picked out for your children?
It varies from year to year, but one name I have always loved is Felicity.

3. What color do you want the bridesmaid's dresses in your wedding to be?
Well, if I have my dream wedding, I would love to be married in the autumn with bridesmaids dresses of either deep purple or burnt orange.


4. What color of paint do you want to paint your "living room" with?
I haven't thought much about any of the rooms in my future home other than my kitchen and dining room, which is what most of my hopechest stuff is for :)

5. If there were a particular virtue that you would want to pass on to your children, what would it be?
Contentment in all situations.

Fun stuff Anna!

Anna said...

Aww, thanks girlies! Those are some really good answers, I just love them!

I thought I could share my fabulous five with everyone as well. :)

1. Mostly, I plan my wedding... just for fun. I'm also looking forward to raising children, etc.

2. I love the name "Serenity" for a little girl and "Michael" for a boy... (those are only a few, mind you.)

3. Light-ish green or light-ish blue. (The flowers that I "picked out" go best with light-ish green.)

4. I'd like to paint my living room cream...

5. Contentment - no matter where God has placed you, and Charity.

Okay! There y'are!

Bailey said...

I really want to see pictures from Elissa's future wedding...an autumn wedding with such beautiful bridesmaid's colors. *sigh*

Anna, you picked a great topic. ;o)

(1) Marriage. Not the wedding. The actual living with a best friend whom I can help and love and strengthen. I, um, think about it overmuch, to be honest.

(2) Um, well, not really. I love Harper and Hayden.

(3) I've never planned my wedding, so I haven't the slightest idea. I've figured out what I want to wear to my first book signing though. :P

(4) H'm. I want it bright...so lots of white and blue. Like a page torn out of a country magazine.

(5) Unconditional love that overlooks faults, repairs relationships and mirrors the love of God. There's gonna be a TON of hugs, kisses, compliments, laughter and cuddles in our household. :o)))

Sarah said...

1.Hmmm... Getting married (being married) .

2. Jasmine , Jade , Moriah , Drew , Selena, April Summer ,Harmony ...

3. A variety of colors ! Can't really choose , though !

4. Cranberry with acscent walls , or sage green , or , or ...

5. To always think , What would Jesus Do .

Lizzy said...

Ooh, great questions, Anna!

And it seems I shan't be too original! :P

1. My future life- walking through life beside that man I was made for...

2. Boys: Judah, Aidan, Jonas, Ephraim, Demetri. Girls: Felicity, (Elissa, we've got good taste it seems! ;)) Elsie, Elisabet, Hadassah... I have more, but those are tops. :)

3. Oh yes, my 'dream wedding' would be a traditional Russian wedding,(since it's in my blood) in the old-way -- (minus the roasted swan, LOL!) My bridesmaids would wear traditional attire done in lavender silk and royal purple brocade. My wedding would be purple and off-white. *sighs*

4. My living room will probably be a 'naval' blue, with plenty of darkly stained wood.

5. 1st: Of the love of God and His offered salvation.
2nd: Loyalty.
3rd: To appreciate their heritage.

What fun!

Erin said...

Love this! :)

What event in your future do you dream about the most? Meeting Mr. Rightley, marrying Mr. Rightley, raising a family with Mr. Rightley. :) (And for those who have never seen 'Emma', that name probably doesn't make a whole lotta sense.) lol

Do you care to share any names you may have picked out for your children? Um, let me think...Travis and Daniel are two of my favorite boy names and then Rebekah and Olivia for girls. I hope to be blessed with lots of kids though, so I probably should be coming up with more names. :)

What color do you want the bridesmaid's dresses in your wedding to be? A deep teal color. *sigh*

What color of paint do you want to paint your "living room" with? Humm, I haven't really thought of this. I think a deep red or maybe cream color would be nice.

If there were a particular virtue that you would want to pass on to your children, what would it be? Love, honesty, and patience.

Elissa said...

Bailey.... Pictures?!?! Honey, if I have my way, you be there front and center! :) *hugs*

Lizzy - yes indeedy ;) Oh, and I love the name Hadassah too, so very lovely.

Kara said...

What event in your future do you dream about the most? Um, having little children. *sigh*


Do you care to share any names you may have picked out for your children? (If so, what are they?)Hm, maybe Jessi, Isaac, Rachel, Marie.


What color do you want the bridesmaid's dresses in your wedding to be? A green. Probably lightish green

What color of paint do you want to paint your "living room" with? ? Am I supposed to be planning that far ahead?! I dunno, whatever is cheapest!? Lol, probably cream, or it would depend on the color of mwa furinture.


If there were a particular virtue that you would want to pass on to your children, what would it be? Lovingness, not being a critic, and to be like Jesus.

Wow...you came up with those? Good grief, do you think I plan that far ahead? lol ;P nice job!

Kara said...

lol Erin, yup Mr: "Rightly". Don't ya just *love* that movie?

Anna said...

I had no idea this would be so much fun! All of you have awesomely "dreamy" answers.

I just "had" to comment on some of these lovely answers.

Lizzy: *gasp* You like "Hadassah" too? I LOVE that name! It's just beautiful isn't it?

Erin: Hahaha! Love your use of "Mr. Rightly - and teal sounds beautiful for your wedding!

Elissa: Your wedding sounds absolutely beautiful as well. I love to plan out my "wedding" - decorations, and the like. I've well nigh got everything decided (for the moment) except for who's going to be standing at the other end of the aisle. :D I leave that for God to decide.

Flop: Your first answer cracks me up. :) "One that goes to sleep."

Bailey: The colors for your livingroom sound very much like mine! (Obviously, they sound charming!)

Sarah: I love that name you picked out... "Harmony." It's beautiful!

And....Kara: :D Yep, I wrote "this." lol:) I love your answer to the "paint" question. (I love you too!)

Virginia said...

Here it goes, Anna, you asked for it haha!

I dream about Joel and I's wedding. And shairing the rest of my life with him!

For a girl: I've always loved the name Victoria Rose, or Krista Anne.
For Boys: Joel Amos Jr. and Jason Paul

The Colors for my Bridemaids are Going to Be Purple Dresses and Brown Shrugs, or boleros.. whatever you call them :D

My Living room: I don't particularly know that yet, I prefer a Nuetral color Palet, or "pastel" colors.. like the ligt "easter yellows and blues

As for the Virtue: treat everyone with love no matter what, or don't talk about people: it messes things up. OR I don't know, there's to many haha!

Anna said...

Thanks Virginia! I love the "names" you have picked out!

Maria said...

Okay Anna. You asked so here you go:
1. I dream about meeting "Prince Charming" also called my future husband. My wedding is also the top of my list. Oh and having children, of course!
2. I always loved the name Monica for a girl ( along with many others) and I really like Edmund for a boy. Honestly, I love that name!
3. I image my bridesmaid dresses to be a pale blue or a spring green! I haven't made up my mind yet!
4. Umm... probably dark blue..kidding!! I would probably paint it a soft, quiet color like cream or something!
5. I would like to pass on being kind to others and also compassion for all.

Kara said...
